Last night's "that doesn't feel quite right" became this morning's "motherfucking ow."
Fortunately, the urgent care clinic was great (the Valley Med at the Landing--highly recommended; great folks) and I am now downing antibiotics and those fun little pee-dye pills. Damn shame the med tech was such a cute little Russian/Ukranian boy. It's always ten times more embarassing to go in for issues like that when the people you're talking to are hotties.
Gorgeous, gorgeous day. Will probably spend much of it asleep because I only got a few hours last night, thanks to the issue above.
Reminds me that I need to get something figured out for our AC install, though. It's going to start getting warm, soon. We have a whole-house fan that works fairly well, but we don't have much in the way of shade, so the house is likely to heat up quite a lot this summer.
Hooked up with the new vet to find out why Fammy's been barfing on the bed more or less every night for the last couple of weeks. She does that fairly often anyway, but this was consistent enough that we got worried. After an exam and some bloodwork, doc says she's fine, but probably has acid reflux or something like that, and needs to be on a hypoallergenic diet. Which probably is healthier for the other two as well.
Delighted to have had a nice, low-key afternoon BBQ last Sunday with miss_swamp
and assorted small humans. Need to do that again, preferably when the weather's more like it is today instead of the dreary, relentless grey it was last weekend.
Really wishing my hardcore creative jones this week had translated into my nonfiction obligations instead of the mental masturbation ones, but I'm finally starting to settle into a bit of a rhythm with the being-at-home thing. Realizing that yes, I still have months of non-structured time left, and therefore I don't have to do all of my creative stuff in one go. I can do other things with my life, too. Rilly. Cooking, playing more Rock Band, reading, etc. Still feeling just a little bit antsy, but I suspect I'll calm down soon.
Still enjoying the fandom thing, though, as well as other generic pop culture ventures. Andrew/Primeval fandom is turning out to be full of really nice, mostly sane people. The fic community in particular is mostly populated with smart, mature and open-minded folks. Such a refreshing change. I dare say that I'm writing all this fic now just because I know there are plenty of folks who will enjoy reading it, and who won't faint dead away at some of the... Yeah.
Also tickled that Andrew hisself started up a FB account just for his fans, and has been posting some fun behind-the-scenes pics and such. There have been a few knuckleheaded fantwits over there, but by and large, we've been well behaved so far. There are only a couple hundred of us, though, so that might change if there are more. Kinda glad that Andrew-specific fandom is fairly small, though. Would hate to see him get huge overnight and suffer for it, because he really does seem like a nice guy.
Having a blast following random celebs on Twitter, too. Loving Neil Grayston (Fargo on Eureka) in particular. Funny, awesome guy with a twisted mind.
