An Open Letter To Stuff


Dear My Neck: Please to be re-aligning? Please? Will give you heating pad if you at least promise to fix pulled muscle that makes even attempting to align you hurt like a mofo.

Dear My Heating Pad: Please to be being where I think I put you last, because I am tired and do not want to tear up the house looking for you.

Dear My Bed: Please to be not catching on fire from heating pad if I happen to fall asleep before turning it off, k?

Dear My Orange Mew Kitty: Please to be staying just the way you are. Bestest under-desk toe warmer ever. Wish you could come to work with me. love, Mommy.

Dear My Brain: Please to be coming home! All is forgiven! Shall kill fatted calf (or at least buy lactose-free ice cream) and everything!

Thank you, The Mommy! But I found mine. It was indeed right where I thought I left it. (In the box next to my dresser.)

I'm sorry you're in pain, baby. Please have the consolation of knowing you are adorable. :>)

:D Thank you!

Am now in less pain. Hopefully this does not pull down the adorableness quotient.

It's criminal we can't take cats into work. There should be new legislation.

Orange Mew Kitty sounds adorable.

"It's criminal we can't take cats into work."
Drinkthepoisonx does sometimes (sorry, I 'm crap at linking).
I always envy blokes driving round in their white vans or lorries, taking their dog everywhere with them.

Wow that all sounds very uncomfortable except for Orange Mew Kitty which quite frankly sounds adorable. If I see your brain pottering around I'll be sure to send it back post haste.

Take care hun

Thank you! If you see my brain, you'll recognise it by how small and underused it looks...

**shrieks in delight at Orange Mew Kitty**

**is shamefaced when faced with fact that I'm probably adding to pain**

**slinks away, but not before leaving some of that fairly-useless-to-actual-healing-but-feels-damn-good Icy Hot stuff**

Great, you scared him away! *g* But no, no real headache, at least not at the level where light and sound are a problem.

Ooh, IcyHot. I have some of that; I should think deeply about trying it. I just hate that it gets all over my fingers, then I forget same and suck on one of them and ewwwwww.

should the heating pad have not materialized and you still need something, a clean sock full of rice stuck in the microwave for a minute does *wonders*. Holds heat for a good long time and is all pleasently weighty and fitting in contours well.

Huh! That is a new one on me, and something I might try (even though I found the heating pad, and it's taken the edge off) because it seems like it would be a bit mor convenient sitting at my desk. Thanks!

I get nervous with heating pads ever since I had one short out and scorch my bed so the sock thing is awesome. Also, I am poor and have socks and rice. :) Got the idea from these fancy versions at an art gallery that were shaped like cats and otters and things that were big enough to wrap around your neck. Those also had lavendar added to them and would get very fragrant when warmed. Anyway, glad you're feeling better!

Poor girl. You have sought medical attention, right?

It's a combo of pre-existing neck problems to which my doc's reaction was "Oh, you should try one of those special neck-pillows" instead of anything resembling, you know, treatment, and then having fallen fown the stairs and injured my left elbow (yes, definitely sought treatment for that!), which meant I couldn't bend it properly or apply any pressure to it to do the things I usually do to make my neck feel better. Which lead to uncomfy sleeping positions and pulled muscle in my neck/shoulder on the opposite side from the injured elbow. Yay for chain reactions!

Oh my. How... helpful. Hmph.

And what a cute cat!

Yes. I'm seeing her again in October anyway, and this time I'm going to push for "Look, this is not about how I'm sleeping -- I have a vertebra that is contantly clicking and a neck that is constantly hurting, and it needs treatment.

And Mew Kitty Under The Desk (Again) thanks you!

The rice sock thing is niiiiice; have been trying it for the last few nights. And smells good, too!

*g* I'm all out of the pretty little capsules that came with the ugly little falling down the stairs, and I don't like red wine, so I'm probably good. Despite the talking to the inanimate objects and the body parts both present and missing.
