The Moon and I

Bad news on the Wrinkle photo project.  Talked so someone who used to take pics in nursing homes, retirement communities (my Dad).  He was telling me that if people are spending the night, they probably signed a HIPAA.  And if they signed a HIPAA, as most would have to, I would have to get legal documentation of permission to take their pictures, and anyone else that might show up in the frame.

If there were some senior centers around here, which I believe there is at least one, I might have a chance there.  But I can’t rely on these other things right now, I’ve gotta go out and take pictures!

I have one really cool idea in my head which I will share tomorrow.  Yikes though, I have to have pics to show my prof by Tuesday!  Just pics that show I’m working on something though, nothing more than that.

So, until then, I leave you with the only pics I did take tonight.  Pictures of the moon with Micheal, who stayed warm in the car.

This is going to be a very busy week.  Right now I’m tired, thirsty and getting sick.  Boo.  I have chronic bronchitis.  Get it every year and just about every year, it turns into pneumonia.  So right now I’m trying to get healthy, meanwhile the semester is ending and my classes are getting really busy.  Not happy about all of this!!!

Night friends. Thanks for all of the comments.

I just lost a 5 paged post.  I’m pissed.

I just wrote a post that was so long, my hands now ache.  It covered all the things that had happened to me in the past year that I had not blogged about so far.  It was hard to write.  It was personal.  It was impossibly well linked.  It had pictures and trackbacks.  It told a story I have never told anyone. It was emotional. It was real.

Now it’s gone and I am so pissed off.  This hasn’t happened to me in years.  Not since WordPress Autosaved.

Yeah, well it didn’t this time.  I hit publish and it brought me to the login page.  I even tried to quickly copy the entire post just in case, didn’t work.

I am so so so so so mad.  This stuff shouldn’t happen.

I cannot type anymore, I’m nearly in tears and my hands hurt too much.  Christ. The past hour and a half was a waste.  Getting emotion out only to have it thrown away like trash doesn’t have the theraputic effect actually publishing does.  WordPress is dead to me right now.

Don’t Think I Told Ya

So I haven’t been very good at updating, but this time around I have a really good excuse.

A little over a week ago, I had surgery on my left wrist to repair some damage from an old Starbucks accident.

It was supposed to be a really simple, 45 minutes, twilight anesthesia…  Then it got bad.  Turns out they had to cut a ligament or two, shave some bone and then put it all back together.  So right now I’ve got just one wrist that actually works.  Typing is a bitch and photography is nearly impossible.

So right now I’m a total gimp, and my medical fun doesn’t stop there!  So far this week I have had four medical tests/exams and two more coming up.  Yuck.  

Right now I feel pretty darn fine, besides the pain in my left wrist.  The vicodin helps but knocks me out and make me quite the entertainer as I attempt to walk around my apartment.  Hilarious!

Ryan and I have an adorable garden… in our living room.  It’s a little too cold to set the plants free but, soon enough.

Ok, sleepy time.  Sorry I am so random, it’s late, yeah.

Craigslist, Hmph

So, beyond being on a few missed connections, kinda funny really, I have never used Craigslist.  Today I did however and made a whopping three posts, whoa!  Oh and one bulletin board/forum post so I guess that’s four.

Yeah so anyways, I need to get back to my studying/reading/writing/brainstorming.

I’m Sick and Tired of…

Being sick and tired.

I went to urgent care today.  For about two weeks I’ve have been dealing with what I thought was a cold.  I got my flu shot this year so I wouldn’t have to worry about getting sick… Lull and behold, I have bronchitis.

Are you kidding me?  Ugh.  Luckily I caught it before it got too bad

So anyways, while I was waiting to get my four RX’s filled, I got a new aquarium for my goldfish with a nice filter and all that jazz.  The first aquarium I bought today had a leak so I had to return it.  I give major props to Columbia Pet Center.  They are incredibly knowledgeable about all things pet related and seem to care a great deal for their creatures, large and small.

The guy who helped me out there did a wonderful job of making me feel comfortable with my purchase of an aquarium (at $15 less than the other pet store) and power-wheel bio filter.  My goldfish is just loving his new space, ten times larger.

In a month they will test my water and let me know if I’m ready for any plants or other fish.  How professional.  PetCo or Pet’s Mart would sell me anything just to make a sell, never-mind the health of the fish.  Kevin brought me to this place a few years ago, thanks Kevin!

I also went to Best Buy to get yet another 1tb external hard drive.  I now have over 1.5tb of data on my iMac.  My external 1tb filled up with my iTunes library and Time Machine backups.  At first I had some trouble with my new drive but it seems to be working out just fine right now.  I have backed up my laptop and am currently moving the old Time Machine backups to the new drive.

It’s going to take a while…  Over 7 million files and counting?  I truly am a media whore.

UPDATE: I am now at over 10,000,000 files.  Holy crap.

UPDATE: It is still counting up after over seven hours and more than 29,000,000 files.  Something just isn’t right here.  There just can’t be that many Time Machine backups.

So… Tired…

I’ve been working at the hospital and Starbucks this week… It’s murder.  I’m getting maybe a few hours of sleep a day, then off to work, then to class, then to until 1am.  Last night we got out of work at 1:30!  I am so freaking tired, I can’t really function.  French homework?  Please…  French Quiz… fuck.

Even my hands are shaky from the experience.  I need a vacation!
