diamondlife: (One of those days - mojotmonkey)
Not a good start to the day - had uncomfortable dreams that involved taxis in London and several of my friends, both real and made up. Then I went to the doctor and he basically told me off for worrying. He was very nice to me last year when I was a bit of a wreck, but I guess, a little unexpectedly, they have more tolerance for genuine mental anguish than vague physical symptoms. -_- So that's a relationship with another doctor ruined. -_- I always have to push too far, and furthermore I take scoldings very, very badly, no matter how gentle they are.

I'm also glad I didn't book my ticket to Japan yet, because I checked my bank balance yesterday and I can't afford it. ^^;; Um, this is embarrassing, but could anyone who owes me money please look into getting it to me? #^^# Doesn't have to be all of it! But some would be nice. ^^;;

Oh dear, better go to work now. *throws self under bus*
diamondlife: (Yummy - saihara)
I sort of want to do that 5 things meme, where you write "5 ways Ely fills her time at work when she has nothing to do" (but with characters, obviously), but atm I kind of feel like I only want to write JE (well, you know, K8, with crossovers with K-T or NEWS) or D1. So now that's narrowed it down sufficiently, if anyone has any lists they want to see me write, go ahead! ^^' (I might have a go at 5 Reasons Hina is scared of Yasu* myself, but as I said to [livejournal.com profile] ilanabean42, all the reasons would be the same. ;) And anyway, hers will be better. ;D)

Recent cause for concern: when I walk back home from work (it's about a mile), I set off feeling fine, but by the time I get home I feel really wobbly and disoriented. The fact that I also seem to feel hungry, and start to feel better after I eat, suggests it's something to do with blood sugar, but maybe I should get that looked at. :/ I've also been feeling ridiculously tired in the evenings, but I've also been waking up earlier, so it's not that I've been neding more sleep; but I'm used to pushing it and being awake till 2, even though I don't want to be, so it's scary to be absolutely unable to stay awake by 11. ^^;; Might all be to do with the beta blockers - I've heard they can, for some reason, cause low blood sugar - but I've not taken one since... last week sometime? Don't remember, but not for a few days, at least. Maybe it's worth checking out... *worryworryworry*

*That translation, incidentally, is a lot of fun - the questions are the sort of thing I'd ask. XD

...This entry was a mess. Man, I'm so bad at making myself clear! x_o
diamondlife: (Drive my car - younie)
On Sunday I felt dizzy; yesterday my upper back hurt; today my legs feel weird. Just in case, you know, you wanted to know about my weird problems. I'd hate you all to think I was fine and normal. -_-

[livejournal.com profile] avatar1983, do you want to go watch some snooker? It starts in a week, I can't believe it! Pick of the first round is Ding Junhui vs Ronnie O'Sullivan - a replay of the Masters final, would you believe! (Which, incidentally, Ronnie won, but to his credit, he was very gracious to Ding when Ding was obviously upset by the crowd.) I'm annoyed they're meeting so early, because Ronnie will win and I really wanted to see Ding do well. :/ There's not that many tickets left, but we could go see local boy Shaun Murphy, or Neil Robertson, who's done very well this season (and I have actually seen before, as he was the last person Paul Hunter played at the Crucible, and I went to see the first session of that match). He's Australian, so the novelty is worth seeing!

...I'll stop snooker geeking now, and move back to the normal geeking. XD I've been liking Hina more and more lately - for some reason, him speaking English on Shikatte Blond Sensei filled me with "Awww!" I thought he did pretty well, bless him! He only had one moment of utter panic and terror, which was very cute. XD Though I love the shyboys, it's refreshing to see one who's so completely up for everything. :D

Ahhh, typing in LJ is always therapeutic~! Maybe I'll write some bloody fic now. The one I was working on yesterday just fragmented into pieces. ^^;; Let's see if I can find some fic-glue... :3

It's Gaiden day, so don't expect anything but gibbering from me for a while. *_* What is it about holding hands that always gets me?

I drank coffee for the first time in ages today, and it made my chest feel absolutely awful. :/ This is worrying. Though tea, coke and chocolate have no effect, so I don't know what it should be about the caffiene in coffee that makes me react. My chest felt a bit bad after the gig the other night too, what with the loudness and all. It's not unscary. o.o

[Edit] The usual methods led to the discovery of another very cute Saiyuki thing that I'd not seen before, so I thought I'd share. :)

Wank is not big and it's not clever. Fandom_wank should be scoured from the interweb. Bunch of supercilious idiots. I hatehatehate mockery. I respect genuine humour, and I respect rage, but mockery is just sneaky and hypocritical. >:E (All stems from my belief that people should just say what they mean. Preferably, everyone should have something to mean, but if they don't, then they should just keep their damn mouths shut.)

I'm not with it today. Might be auto-suggestion as I can feel I have my period coming on, but my chest feels really bad today too. Hasn't felt right for a few days, but this morning there's been times when I almost went home. Can't even describe how it feels. Just "weird". -_-

Made a small-ish mistake at work, and even though I didn't get in trouble, these things stick with me. :/

Have been having bad dreams recently too. Not terrifying ones, but ones that make your head feel weird when you wake up. The good news is, girl-Sanzo has returned to haunt me as well. ...Well, good news for me, anyway. *cough*

[Edit] Browsing the Sheffield A-Z, I happened upon Boyland Street. It amused me far more than it should have. -_-
diamondlife: (That's hot - iconcentration)
Hey, what's with all the good Hyotei fic today? o.o I don't read as much for PoT as I used to, but I'm glad I idly clicked on some fics - excellent OshiGaku from [livejournal.com profile] jellypond here and from [livejournal.com profile] akahannah here, and also a very nice Higa story (again by [livejournal.com profile] jellypond) here. Now gotta find enough brain power to leave feedback.

I think the fear's come back - joy, eh? )

Which reminds me - got to go to the gym this weekend! Not been for yonks. Wanna write too - get all the important scenes done with, then starting filling in the gaps. Well done, brain, for waiting till I've written 3500 words to let me know I need to write in at least one more character and associated plot-line... ^^'
diamondlife: (Fierce - sonkikyo)
Panic panic panic )

You know, the funny thing is, I never worry about *normal* things. I'm surprisingly rational when it comes to things like bereavement, money, living arrangements, domestic problems and so on: I'm pretty laidback, I accept them and deal with them. Sometimes I find myself wishing for some *real* crisis, just so I can stop worrying about things that may or may not be there.
diamondlife: (Oh dear. - pos_praiser_01)
Ten-chan keeps making these weird whining noises. o.o I'm kinda worried, but he doesn't seem ill... Probably could do with his cage cleaning, though.

Urgh, I feel cheated cos I didn't sleep at all right last night. I love sleeping, so I feel ripped off when it doesn't go right! And to be honest, I've not been sleeping as well as usual recently. :/ It was really hot last night! x_o Made me feel like I had a temperature, so then I started worrying I was ill, and couldn't sleep cos of that. Y'know it's funny, my current method for trying to get into sleepy-frame-of-mind is drawing kana in my mind, lol. My kana-writing skills SUCK (my kana look really ugly and not-Japanese at all) so I'm practicing even without paper. Ha.

I need to go have some blood taken at the hospital, too (went back to the doctor's yesterday and he said it was probably best to check out my thyroid etc, just to be certain. I've actually been feeling much better, so w00t for that, eh?). I've never had it done before, so I'm kinda nervous. It's one of those things, I'm not scared of needles, but I know I'll be fine till I get there, when I'll think how squeamish-making it is. I *am* the most squeamish person in the world, and it has to be said, that even though I'm not scared of injections, they always seem to hurt me. >.<;;

Also, got tagged for a meme by [livejournal.com profile] sarinthesky!

- Search your blog archive
- Find your 23rd post
- Find the fifth sentence - this is apparently meant to say something about you.
- Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions
- Tag five people to do the same

...Mine is from the 2nd of August, 2002. XD Look at the deep insightful nature of the sentence:

B and Nat took 5 hours to fix it, lol

I'd been having the ubiquitous computer trouble, lol. In the same entry, I also sang the praises of [livejournal.com profile] beccaabbott (still one of the greatest writers I've ever had the privilege of sharing a fandom with!) and was talking about You Go Girl!, my GW-genderswitched fic. >D

I should do that meme where you talk about what was in your LJ six months/1 year/2 years/etc ago... I'll do that one tomorrow, I reckon.

I didn't mention, I went to see Howl's Moving castle last night (free preview showing, thanks to the Daily Telegraph - guess they *are* good for something!). It was the dub, obviously, but I thought all the main actors did extremely good jobs - with the exception of Christian Bale, who clearly thought "I'm the good-looking lead male in an anime - therefore I must talk like this!" (Of course, that works better if I do the voice. But if you've seen it, you'll know what I mean. ;) I've got to see the original now, just to see what Howl really sounds like. o.O Cos he really was very hot. *cough* Not that I'm superficial, or anything. I'm still trying to work out whether that fact contributed a lot to my enjoyment of the film; cos I did enjoy it, very much, though Dave didn't - he didn't see the point of it all. To be honest, I didn't think it was perfect by any stretch of the imagination; but I enjoyed it about a hundred times more than Spirited Away, for a start. I liked Sophie as a character, and I quite liked the romance, though, as I say, there were a number of bits I thought could've been done much better... but somehow, I found myself enjoying it a lot. Dave said he thought it had pacing issues, but I have to say I found it quite nicely-paced - it was a little long, but on the whole it kept going nicely and I was never bored. Er. Didn't exactly do the best job of explaining why I liked it, lol, but I did. And that's what counts.

Also was excited to get this song yesterday! Sing it, Sanada! It's actually a pretty decent song. In the voice message he says Ore no bigi ni yoi na as well, in a suitably dorky fashion. Hate that word dorky, and the more I associate with certain people, the more wary I am of attaching it to Sanada; but in this case, I'm going with it. ;)

[livejournal.com profile] robojellyfish, my friend isn't coming till tomorrow, so we can snog tonight!! Yippee!

Nothing to see here. )
