In other news I am:
* Woefully behind on everything due to work being enormous and me having but ONE symptom remaining from the infamous gallbladder and that symptom being fatigue.
* HOPELESS at being fatigued -- my neck needs a massage from too much sofa napping and yet I still never get to bed at a reasonable hour.
* Almost wholly extremely healthy, which I can say with some authority having had most bits scanned, tested and prodded over the last month. Except ...
* My right foot is mankier than usual and so I am also ...
* Really certain that that MRI on House is a fake, because those bastards are insanely loud! Also, those paper gowns are see-through and that was a long hall down to the MRI with a nice little old man sitting at the end of it. And my skin is very white and showed up very well through that navy paper. Thank goodness for very large magazines that can fulfill the modesty role of a bra.
* Waiting to hear on how Linwood College has gone this week. Vicki is one of the main information points for disaster relief in her area and was also out being a Skeptic when the loony lunar earthquake theory set came out, so she has been a bit busy. Will ring if I have not heard by Sunday.
* Devastated about Japan, will write more on this on Sunday, I hope, but in the meantime, if you are looking for fandom-related donations, check out japan_calls , a really clever idea where they have asked celebrities to donate 15 seconds of voice talent to leave a message for you (presumably to use on your phone) should you win the bid. Some great names, including Kristen Bell, Kristin Bauer (is that Pam? she's terrific!), Eliza Dushku, Mark Ruffalo and Sia.
* Off to Canberra now for an exhibition of Ballets Russe costumes! Must pack!

That's Pam! She also just promoted us on our site! :) http://kristinbauer.net/japan-calls-auction/

So grateful to her. AND YOU for pimping! Thank you!

Blah fatigue and manky foot, GTFO!

MRIs are incredibly noisy, and I don't recall ever seeing patients in House wearing huge padded ear protectors ... we tell kids that the MRI sounds like a bag full of rocks in a washing machine accompanied by a pneumatic drill ...

Oh, goodness yes! The noise! And I'm due to have two in the next couple of weeks - right shoulder/neck and brain (again)!

So you'll be here in Canberra for the weekend, yes? Meet for coffee, maybe, if you have the time and would like to?

I would love to, but alas, was literally just down for the exhibition -- rocked in in time to sleep, had breakfast with friends, saw the exhibition, then on the road for an afternoon stop in the Southern Highlands before getting back to a do I need to head out to tonight (when Richard Armitage is on the telly!) Next time! When there is more organisation and actual time involved! I have to meet emerald_dragon, too! Off out again ...

Enjoy Canberra! I hope the fatigue eases soon x

Glad to hear you've been working on getting healthy! I definitely hear you on the sofa napping... must really stop doing that.

Have fun looking at Ballets Russe costumes, and hope Canberra treats you well.

Sorry to hear you're not well. I hope you have lots of tea and I wish you a neck massage. *sends via hopefulnet*

Eagerly awaiting Linwood College update.

Oooh! Ballets Russe costumes!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gall bladders are evil - had mine out at 2... well now I can't remember if it was 22 or 23 but IT WAS ONE OF THOSE YEARS. Evil things.

Most things on House are fake ._.

Hope you stop being fatigued soon~
