Oh, and last week I told mom not to leave dad at home and come sit with me in the hospital, that I'd be okay, and she got irritated by that. Tonight, she told me she was going to spend a few days at my aunt Carole's so she'll be closer to the hospital. Oh well.

I currently have 28 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 28 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like or three random tidbits about it.

Go for it, although I only have a little bit of what I wrote on there. Here ya go

Thursday I went to my GP for among other things, to get some help with my legs. I've been having painful pins and needles in my thighs, also numbness, burning-all the fun little nerve tricks. I thought I'd ask him for a referral, or something. Anything. I got bupkis.

Turned out his office let me wait over an hour before telling me that he had left earlier. And they only told me because I'd ask. Since I was there, and fasting, I insisted on being seen anyway. A nurse who was able to do so filled my prescriptions, and another doctor saw my briefly. She promised to get some medication for my legs, but it was never given to the pharmacy.

Today I tried to get out of bed, and screamed in pain. I immediately got up and called out of work, and then we went to urgent care. I had to wait a long time, because someone had to be sent to the hospital. But the doctor did see me, and her theory was it was from my back. I wouldn't be surprised-my back had been fairly all right. Maybe it got jealous of all the problems I'd had with my lungs and decided to show me who's boss, I don't know.

So she took some x-rays, got me a couple of shots and some meds, and things are somewhat better now. It's not 100%, but I'm not in a lot of pain. Still some numbness though.

One thing though, she prescribed me some muscle relaxants. My pre-sober self LOVED muscle relaxants with booze. They were fun. It's so funny, I'm 14 years sober, and when I saw those pills, a little voice in the back of my head said "HI FRIEND! FRIEND! LET'S GET WASTED!" But no, no, have to take them like an adult. Being medicated for my mental illness makes a BIG difference.

Oh, and my blood sugar is high. Tomorrow I'll bring that up while I'm looking for a new GP.

This is one of the genre cards. I'm pretty happy with it.

MCR actually broke up. To say that is a surprise is an understatement-they were still working on music. I'm puzzled, but I'm sure we won't get much of an explanation. I know a lot of fans want one now, but after the way Bob left, I don't expect one.

I don't really know how I feel about it-I was devastated when Bob left, and I had been out of the fandom for about a year. It's been about three more years and now I'm just like "oh". I don't understand it really, but I'm not crying into my keyboard either.

It's been so fun to me fandom-wise, because I was in bandom from about 2004-ish to 2008, and then about a year or two into Adam Lambert fandom, most of my Adam people started getting into bandom! It was this lovely second wave and it was so much fun for me to see everyone getting involved. I could've done more to help people catch up, but there was a lot of enabling going on on that front. :)

Oh well. Think of all the interesting projects! Ray will probably do something awesome-I can't see him not playing music. Frank has Leathermouth and he'll probably have six other bands as well since "resting" seems to be a foreign concept to him. Gerard will probably do more comics, and I'd be happy if he did other stuff, branched out. Like do a voice for a kid's cartoon, something silly.

Then there's Mikey. Mikey to me, needs some time away from the spotlight. I hope he does.

And actually, I'm glad in a way we got a clean "we broke up" over a "we're on hiatus". Even though Fall Out Boy turned out to be telling the truth about the "hiatus", most bands don't.

But Jim Nabors marrying his partner put a big smile on my face. I've always had a special place in my heart for Jim, since my mom used him as an example of why we should have tolerance and acceptance for gays. She told me this in 1975, when I was five years old. My mom was ahead of her time on that one.

In other news, just saw Warm Bodies and loved it. Great movie, a zom rom com. It's worth it, trust me.

Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI for listing Juggalos as a gang.

No, really. They're going to sue the Feds. And you know, they should. This whole "ICP are leaders of a gang" thing is not only untrue, but it hurts the band financially because they can't sell their t-shirts at places like Hot Topic anymore.

I have no love in my heart for ICP and their dumber fans, but you can't call them all gang members for liking a group. It doesn't matter that it's a shitty group, either. Every time the FBI interacts with pop culture it's generally hilarious and wrongheaded. Or it's funny after the fact, anyway. Let's hope this latest bullshit blows over soon.

Happy Tresspassing Day, my fellow Glamberts. I will be impatiently waiting for my copy to show up.

I bought three copies-the one I pre-ordered in January, the UK edition that I was gifted the money for, and one for Youth First Texas. (YFT's amazon gift page is addictive. I want to buy them everything!)

I need to write a ficlet or something to celebrate. I have a chapter and a new story in the works but they're gonna take a while. I just want to write a little to celebrate.

I never use Scrapbook, but I think people who pay for a service should, you know, know when that service gets severely diminished. Via caiusmajor :

Alright, I am not drunk enough to deal with this, so I'm just going to put out this PSA:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away. Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.
