Current Month
Apr. 11th, 2014 @ 11:16 pm Pharmacy error
Found out why last month was so bizarre - the pharmacy tripled the dose on my pain meds at the same time that I started a new muscle relaxant. I was all over the wall - sleeping for days, insomnia, nightmares, crying, terrified of the surgery, anxious, dry mouth, dizzy, even feeling like I couldn't quite breathe - just verklempt!

So now I have to deal with that. My initial reaction was no harm, no foul - but that was immediately after the pharmacist said it was them. Then I got home and everyone was talking about how weird and awful the month was, and I started to put the real picture together in my head (no longer being drugged). I think I'm gonna follow up on this but not sure how.

It was oxycodone and instead of 5mg the pills were 15mg. I thought the new muscle relaxant was kicking my ass, never even thought it was the pain meds I normally take at the same time. I'm not sure how to go about doing anything - obviously add more to the incident report at the pharmacy.

Any advice?

Lin is a student I had back in my Montessori. Montessori teacher have a child for three full years, so I know him pretty well. He's 18 now, and he wants to get back to Tucson - he is from Swaziland but is living in Botswana. I have tried for over a year to find someone I know who can rent him a room. I FOUND HIM ONE TODAY!! I cannot express the pure joy I feel. It is such a gift to be able to put some small thing right - to be a small part in a huge wave of good. It is the perfect antidote for depression.

One the downside - still getting over bronchitis, and saw the4e neurosurgeon. Will be having back surgery - and it looks like this will be a complex and difficult one. If it helps me to walk without pain it is well worth it.

LINDANI IS COMING TO AMERICA!! (Happy, jumpy, twirly dance!)

Because I am addicted to No Solution. Buffy is dead. Willow goes to LA to get Faith out of jail so there's a slayer at the Hellmouth. It's twisty, unpredictable, terrific writing, and it uses even the less used characters wonderfully. She has a dead on ear for dialogue, and some terrific subtleties. And it seems like I'm about the only person who has discovered it. So go to xspike4evax and read, my friends! Read!
Feb. 25th, 2014 @ 07:23 pm Snark squad update - you won't believe this one....
Last night I realized I hadn't dropped by SS for a bit, so I did. Bad decision. Believe it or not, they are no longer mentioning Spike at all. They skip over every scene he is in, except saying he's lurking and spying when Angel and Buffy kiss. Sweeney talked about how much easier it was to review now that she could skip scenes with Ramen Noodle Head in them.

The next episode is the last, and I am betting they won't mention that he dies to save the world. Amazingly petty - hilarious! How better to show how important Spike is than to make such a huge deal about excluding him. Gah - not worth my time but it's that car wreck thing, you know.
Feb. 16th, 2014 @ 02:01 am I have finally figured it out.

This is the author listing - it's a treasure trove of old fiction. I knew it had to be in there!
Feb. 14th, 2014 @ 08:20 pm Fun with surgery!
What I'm gonna do on Wednesday morning - second ablation should be the charm!

On the weather front, we are supposed to hit 90 degrees tomorrow. I am willing to trade heat for moisture. Just let me know where to send ten degree increments, and I will arrange to send our AZ politicians to your city. :)

On the Snark Squad report - they hate Spike so much that they made fun of his speech to Buffy about her being the only thing he's ever been sure of. When Buffy said Spike had difficulty with the word "No." that was derided as another rape joke. No one dares to speak up for Spike. I can't bother to use any energy on being bothered.

Feb. 9th, 2014 @ 03:34 am TVD and Buffy
So I haven't been reading all that much - but I have been watching TVD. I'm still in the first season - Vivki has just been changed, and we learned more of the brothers' history. The one feature that makes it hard for me to get into is that the vampires really are no threat. At least no more than a human. What I mean is that their demons seem awful wussy - it doesn't take over a alters them somewhat. They still get to chose if they want to turn, they can chose to be good or evil - in fact I don't see any true evil. If a vampire can feed without hurting and then erase the memory - why not be a vampire?

I do like Damon - Stefan is an awful lot like Angel (without any threat of losing his soul). Elena - I kind of like her but I would have to learn an awful lot more about her. I do like Vicky, and I like Elena's friends.

So what am I missing? Are there any credible threats of a supernatural nature?
