I something something made it to 50K in NaNo. I don't know why I didn't quit, and I don't know what I actually wrote, and what are words anyway? In the last desperate hours, I wrote some fic about Harold Finch feeding a kitten with an eyedropper.

I finished some stuff. I wrote some crack. I need to get onto Yuletide now.


I am back at work for the first time since... I think it's been nearly three weeks. I am quite drowsy from the multiple antihistamines I'm still on. I haven't started weaning prednisolone yet - I'm on 50mg twice daily right now but planning to start Saturday. I can't sleep much, but wow, I have knees for days. And wrists. I just get into bed with no splints on right now. And I just get up in the morning and walk away with no creaks and groans. I will miss that when the pred goes.

All the skin that swelled is dying and flaking off. I am my own deciduous tree. It's disgusting but fascinating in the 'peel glue off your hand' way of primary school era.


omg I just found a post I wrote in the first week:


things I think about IV antibiotics:
they smell like cat pee going in
they smell like cabbage going out
can I turn cat pee into cabbage inside my body?
can this be incentivised to solve world hunger?

One of the side effects is appetite suppression
i definitely have that
and can't mention it because I am fat
and it will cause all kinds of unpleasant reactions
but it has also caused me to suddenly hate coriander
which as far as i knew was genetic
has it changed my genes?
Am I professor x?

after first infusion:
nurse leaves treatment bed in upright position on angle that suits me
also puts infusion pump and bp monitor nearby for convenience
nurse: we'll leave these here for the next one, since we're not very busy

before second infusion:
I go to a completely different room with different nurses
bed is in down position, etc

after second infusion
nurse leaves treatment bed in upright position on angle that suits me
also puts infusion pump and bp monitor nearby for convenience
nurse: we'll leave these here for the next one, since we're not very busy

before third infusion
I go to the original room but see it's all been tidied up
different nurses again

after third infusion
nurse leaves treatment bed in upright position on angle that suits me
also puts infusion pump and bp monitor nearby for convenience
nurse: we'll leave these here for the next one, since we're not very busy

me wondering: am i leaving little piles of clutter that someone has to clean up? do they wonder what is going on? will i ever make it back to the same room twice in a row?

Wow, I am so much less off my face now. I was really sick. :O

- And as always, [community profile] thisfinecrew is a great resource.

- How to call your reps when you have social anxiety
(This one has done the rounds everywhere, but I liked how clear and simple the plan was.)

(I really liked this poem, especially:
And of course it’s not fair but rest assured,
anxious America, you brought your fists to a glitter fight.

Links to Distract
- The Cast of Criminal Minds Like You've Never Seen Before
I WOULD FREAKING WATCH THE SHIT OUT THIS SHOW, with all the ladies running heists and shacking up together and why can't this be on tv why.

- Captive Prince opening titles
Oldie but a goodie, and the casting makes me laugh. Also, really skillful, you know? It pleases me.

- FringeMusic107 is a youtube channel that makes mixes of TV themes, and I found them to be really good writing/studying music, especially the Person of Interest themes. I played Harold's Theme a lot through NaNo.


Anyway. I am not dead. The world goes on. We are a great team. I love youse guys. <3
