I Blame the Dutch mpoetess

MadPoetess is not gonna be online for a while
She's done something to her back, or maybe it's done something on it's own, all I can say is that the thing is done and it was worth a trip to the emergency room and a prescription for Valium and [something else that she can only take twice a day-yeeks!]

She can't sit or stand for very long and not at all without pain, so she's currently in the guest room having a lie-down. she is currently "very bored, achey, and not at all tired."

In case you were wondering... I'm her roomie, Maeyan. She said that Wolfling knew (they were, I believe, IRCing for a while on Saturday, despite her back) and I thought everyone else should know too.

Just FYI, the emergency room nurse-practicioner (sp?) said that she was to rest for the next 24 hours, in addition to doing some back-stretching exercises and taking the pills.

Since she's been in pain *since* Saturday, we dunno when she'll be back online. Although, if I know her, she'll try her damnedness to be back as soon as she can sit up long enough...

snerk... Am not rabid Spike lover. Am pervy vampire fancier!

This lame cross-fandom joke brought to you by the fact that I'm diligently avoiding work. As well as much gratitude for sanity-preservation, because yours was the comment that made me laugh out loud when m'roomie yelled it from the office.

Was looking for icon that does not have Spike on it. Realized that out of ten, nine do. Giveing up. Am rabid Spike lover.

Bad backs have happened to a few people lately. Get someone to print out some slash for you... It makes the dull hours in bed *much* more enjoyable!

Get well soon.

Thanks! You know, the funky thing about me is that I have no printed out slash, besides my own stuff, the first chapter of Sands of Time, and a much-loved copy of Night Watch.

I never see the point in printing out slash to read later, because by the time I've formatted it for printing and watched it grind out of our inkjet, I've had time to read the story online already! I never remember that it's useful for reading later...

Hope you feel better soon. Let us know if you need anything. (Er, assuming that J. checks your lj and reads these off to you..)

I suppose it's too late to say I need lots of porn dvd's... desperately... or I'll never heal...

HA! Like I'm gonna fall for that.

Moorcock is pretty good, though.

prescription for feeling better when stuck on your back:

xander + spike + chocolate drops + squirty cream + a bet about fake beards.

or alternatively:

frodo (pre-ring when he was all precocious and smiley) + sam (with a couple of beers in him for added bravery) + a box of ripe black berries.
(can be exchanged for pippin and merry but only at the inclusion of more beer than even sam could handle.)

hmmm i can smell soup. hope you feel better soon.

A bet about fake beards? Great -- now it's going to niggle at me until it someday shows up in DP somewhere...

see at the time i'm sure there was a really good reason why i put that. like not just a totally random reason. but for the life of me, i can't remember what it was.


2002-03-04 12:02 pm (UTC) (Link)

Yikes! Well, chicken soup isn't exactly going to help that, but I'm sending lots of virtual pillows -- or, no, wait! VirtualPuffyXander is on his way! =D Hope you feel better soon, mp.


2002-03-08 11:43 am (UTC) (Link)

Yay! I love virtual Puffy!Xander. And real Puffy!Xander. Even Season6 too-tight-cummerbund Puffy!Xander. All make great pillows. Thanks!


2002-03-04 01:07 pm (UTC) (Link)

I hope you feel better soon! If it makes you feel any better at all, I'm liking the site redesign. ;o)

Get well!! I'm sending many wishes for good health and much virtual chocolate your way!



2002-03-08 11:48 am (UTC) (Link)

Thanks -- for both wishes and site comments. I love the Listey/Rimsey love on your icon, btw. Just had a speg-ups marathon while I was laid-up, and so want to go back and watch seasons 1-3 over and over again now.


2002-03-05 02:12 am (UTC) (Link)

Awwww, MP, back trouble sucks! Just wanted to add my sympathies to the pile - I hope you feel better soon! In the meantime, I'm sending Lex/Clark/Spike/Xander over to entertain you. :)


2002-03-08 01:42 pm (UTC) (Link)

As a set? Cool!

::tries to figure out how to untangle them without knocking over the whole pile. Kinda like lifesize Jenga...::
