Peeking in


Hey. Am really, actually me. Am propped up with heating pad in good computer chair (aka, not mine, which is a metal folding chair) and attempting to psych myself up for {egads} going back to work tomorrow. Pointedly ignoring muscle spasms in lower back, because, after all, what are muscle spasms in lower back for, if not to be pointedly ignored?

Thanks muchly for all the well-wishing, virtual chocolate (and offers of real) and nekkid clones - will attempt individual replies when I can actually sit down at the PC for longer than ten minutes straight. Ditto on lovely LOC from Tham -- will say thank you now, and more when brain is working. James, hang in there -- only, um.... lots more days to go. But I will write you distracting fic...er...soon.

Finally figured out who Dominic Monaghan reminded me of-- Dominic Monaghan! Er, I mean, Merry is the boyo who played Hetty Wainthropp's assistant in the Hetty Wainthropp Investigates series. Yee-haw! Now it'll stop niggling at me. (Though, if you Merry-fanciers want to see him looking young, scruffy, and sweetly clueless? Look no further.)

Thankee. Next challenge -- finding clothes that can actually be worn to work, and, um, going to work. Ack.

Thanks, hon.
Rattie-pics, by the way. Ariel pics are great, but need rattie-pics! Use that new digicam of yours to make rattie pics.

Have I mentioned rattiepics?

Yes, Ma'am

Yeah, for about another 5 minutes, I think. but I can kinda stand and kinda walk, and kinda sit, sorta. All in all, my life is difinitively...undefined.

And because my body has a sense of humor, and sitting and standing are the least comfortable positions, my neck has decided to get a kink in it so that it's uncomfortable to lie down.

/me shoots self. With imaginary drugs.

Good luck tomorrow at work MP! Hope the back spasms go away (I've been there and done that and hope to not return anytime soon)!

*hugs*

Thank ye kindly. Am there. So are back spasms. We'll see if they actually get any *work* out of me (what, as compared to before the backache?) but am here.

glad you are feeling a bit better. here's hoping work goes ok for you.

erm *how* did you get to see hetty wainthropp investigates? weird to thing the beeb exported it or something. i've been looking to re-watch the series, (for erm research purposes... or something) but no beeb video or dvd and despite the fact i know they watched it because i was living at home at the time, my step dad, (who videos *EVERYTHING*) didn't get them on tape. grrr. must find someone with enough channels to have ukgold or something. they are bound to be repeating them on digital somewhere... but now i'm just thinking aloud.

more get well soons...

Thanks!

Yup, the Beeb exported it. Saw it on PBS, oh, a good two years ago. Dominic kept twicking my radarin his LOTR 20th Century press photos, and I couldn't for the life of me think of who he was, until I remembered Geoff from Hetty Wainthropp.

Mmm. Hot water bottles.

Actualkl have 2 heating pads (one upstairs and one downstairs) and a hot water bottle that kinda sorta works. Kinda sorta in that it's most useful when sitting up with it between one's back and the chair -- which hurteth to do, hence use of heating pad instead.

Bottles are good for cold feeties, though!
