Me! I am taking my 3DS XL and I'm going to take pictures. I am getting the bacon cheeseburger, small cajun fries and a diet coke. :) They have milkshakes but I want to keep my blood sugars in check. They have bacon as an ingredient for a milkshake. o_O I love bacon but not in a milkshake LOL.....

I want to know from my American buddies... have you had Five Guys? If so, is it good? This is my first time having them.

Tomorrow I see the sz nurses tomorrow. I need to remember to tell them that I want back on the Wellbutrin. It was working like a charm but Cipralex is the one I want off. It does jack all.

Next week is pin, and I'm getting a premium paid account for my DW and a paid account for my DJ and I am getting digital copies off the eShop of Pokemon X, Moon, and Alpha Sapphire and Chibi Robo: Picture Finder (?)

I can't wait!

Just needed to hear this song. I think I'm coming out of my low period... (bipolar = low period: self neglect, sad as fuck yada yada yada) thank God bc I hate being low. I'm for the most part a very happy person. Yes. I'm definitely out of the blue phase. :)

Love David Bowie. I wish that he was still alive. He was a brilliant artist. If you have a 3DS (XL), download this song, convert it with iTunes to .aac format (the only way the 3DS can handle music I think) and slide the pitch thing down and to the left so that they song is in slow motion and at a lower frequency... and listen. I nearly killed myself laughing... that man was full of surprises. <3

--My sleep has continued to be all over the place. Last night I managed to get to bed around 1 AM or so (IIRC) and didn't get up until 11:30 today; the night before, I was in bed by 1:15 so I could get up at a reasonable hour and [ profile] scruloose, [ profile] ginny_t, Kas, and I could go raspberry picking, and I managed, at a generous estimate, two hours of sleep. FUN.

--I had these notions of finishing a fic for this round of [ profile] smallfandomfest, but it wraps up at the end of this month, so...ha ha ha no. ^^; But hey, I got it started and made some actual progress during [ profile] nanodownunder, and unfilled [ profile] smallfandomfest prompts remain available for claiming past the round when they're prompted, so it's not like I won't have another chance. I just liked the idea of doing it now.

--I haven't taken pictures yet, but when we were out watering the garden a couple of days ago, there were the beginnings of blossoms on one of the two clematis plants!

--Amidst all the political awfulness, personal stuff, cute gifs, and book-blogger chat, my Twitter feed has been full of people being gleeful about "Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator"--enough so that I briefly pretended I don't have something like 100 unplayed games and can't remember the last time I played anything and went to check it out. I was saved by an impulse buy by the fact that the game's currently Windows- and Mac-only; I do still have a Windows partition for games, but realistically, I also can't remember the last time I booted into it for anything but StarCraft. (And that wasn't terribly recently. I did buy at least the first of the SCII Nova mission packs, but I don't remember how far I got.) (Separate parenthetical: I've preordered the remastered original StarCraft, so for that, booting into Windows will undoubtedly happen. Unless it magically runs under WINE.)

--I need to keep reminding myself that Rogue One is on Netflix until I finally watch it (having literally slept through most of it in the theatre, which was not the movie's fault!). I should also rewatch TFA sometime in the next few months.

--It turns out Black Sails is shorter than I'd been thinking in two ways: I'd somehow had the impression it's five seasons, not four, and I also hadn't realized the seasons are so short (eight to ten episodes each, I think?). All of a sudden bumping it up to basically the top of my to-watch list (which seems to be a good plan, judging from how many people I know are in love with the show) is a way less daunting prospect.

Brother to Dragons, Companion to OwlsBrother to Dragons, Companion to Owls by Jane Lindskold

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a weird book. I liked it, some parts of it quite a bit, but it's a weird book. I think I started out with the wrong expectations; I'd just read a YA book, and the cover of this one looks like a YA novel. It's also told from the perspective of someone who believes her plastic dragons can talk to her, so initially I thought I was going to be reading a YA fantasy novel.

Pretty quickly, though, the book veers into adult territory; the protagonist Sarah is actually in her thirties, and there's a fair amount of sexual content, including mentions of child prostitution, although none of it is graphic or detailed, just alluded to.

This is set in some sort of possibly dystopic future, but we don't get a lot of details about the world because everything comes from Sarah's very limited POV. That's actually one of my favorite parts about the book--the way the author lets little details about the world slip through (everybody uses some kind of credit system, hovercars are a thing, etc) without really explaining anything.

Another part I really like is that Sarah can speak to inanimate objects. At the beginning of the story, the reader thinks she's hallucinating and then gradually comes to realize that she truly can hear her plastic dragons and other objects speak. I also like that Sarah falls in with a group of marginalized people who have banded together to protect each other and live together in what sounds to me like an abandoned chemical plant. Their society is based on the Jungle Book, and is very cool if also very disturbing in many ways.

So, pros: very cool world building, very interesting protagonist, very interesting plot.
Cons: mentions of child rape and child prostitution, consent issues, really bizarre (dated?) understanding of autism (the story begins with Sarah in an institution, and she's believed to be autistic because she was mute as a child and now can only communicate in quotations from stories that she's memorized)

Recommend with reservations.

We have a little group get together every Monday. We just play games or color... something to do during the day I guess. Tomorrow is laundry day.

Wednesday I go see the schizophrenia nurses. I want back on the Wellbutrin. I don't smoke (as Wellbutrin is a drug that smokers take to quit) but it is also an anti-depressant. I need to tell Jenny that. I think I got my anti-psychotics increased bc the pills are bigger. They used to be tiny but I think Shar talked with Dr. Brennagh and he upped the dosage.

Coll wants to get me an apple cinnamon herbal tea and a little snack also. I love my bff. She is so close to me that I consider her my sister. ^^. We are college buds. Class of '97. She graduated but I dropped out to look after my nephew Mathew. I think that raising children is more important than school. Esp. since I spent most of my time in the computer labs.
