You know, when I posted my SOS to the world earlier and pleaded for distraction I really wasn't asking for Michael Jackson to drop dead. Holy shitballs, batman! I don't even know how to wrap my mind around that one. I mean, snark and cynicism aside (and there is plenty of both, some of which I admit to chuckling at), the man was a perfect storm of talent and tragedy. And as someone who grew up in the eighties/nineties... Yeah. Understanding what a force of nature this guy was back then almost defies explanation, and even then it's not the whole picture. My siblings are all about the same age as Michael. They literally grew up with the Jacksons. I can't even fathom what today's news must mean to them on that visceral level that mourns lost bits of childhood.

Well, that certainly made for a memorable evening sprawled on [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126's couch. I'm currently sitting in [livejournal.com profile] cell23's driveway, watching the heat lightning and the stars and just marvelling at both the day's events and the ways life works out in the most unexpected fashion possible. The air is charged and warm and a project is pushing its way into my conscious mind. This is it, every moment is a chance to begin anew, one must merely take it. And tomorrow? Fuck tomorrow. It's just another day.

Comment "WORDS" to this entry and I will comment back with five words I associate with you. Then you post this in your journal elaborating.

Mine from [livejournal.com profile] purpura:

photography - I need to do it more. I've loved taking pictures since one of my sisters handed me an old camera to play with. I think I was three at the time.

ricrolling (might be a cheat!)- I still think it's the best shit ever. But even before it hit the nets, "never gonna give you up" was one of my favorite songs.

cheesecake - honestly not my favorite. I learned to like it fairly recently and even so I'm picky about it. Juniors makes it the righ consistency in my opinion - cheesecake factory's is too squooshy.

Central Park - I actually never hung out there much cause I grew up at the time where the standard wisdom about central park was that every third lamppost had a mugger behind it. Really the only place in central park I've really ever been to is wollman rink which is the best thing since bread sliced with hockey skates.

Prospect park, on the other hand...

Massachusetts - I came here for college because I wanted to go someplace far enough away from home that my mother wouldn't be dropping in every couple of days (NYU was right out) but not too too far away from my city. I ended up going to smith, and while college was full of the academic fail (quite literally) I fell in love with The Valley and ended up staying. I find this funny as before I left I swore I was going to be one of those people that grew up lived and died in new York. (wo)Man plans god laughs.

I'm in the land of sunder. The drive was anything but fun due to torrential downpours but I made it. I am now quite contentedly sprawled on the couch with iPod and Sano Ichiro novels, head pillowed on [livejournal.com profile] cell23's lap. life is good. :)

No matter how many times you do it, giving yourself an injection never gets any better. Nor does it ever lose that lovely squick factor.

At least it's only once per fortnight. I think I'd lose my shit if it were every day.
kjpepper: (get well gnome)
Okay not really on the last one.

First off, this whole peter pan/greyhound buses having wifi thing? Very yes. They must have known I was considering traveling via Amtrak from now on. This development very well may change my mind.

Well on my way to NY from woostah now after a nice visit with Dr. Cave. I like him a lot. He's this mellow older gentleman with this lovely British accent mellowed by transplating to this side of the pond decades ago and this calm friendly demeanor. He could say "Oh, dear, you seem to somehow have gotten fifteen rabid wombats in your gallbladder." and not only make that sound only mildly worrisome but you will leave quite sure that it can and will be fixed. That takes talent.

The good news for today is I can start weaning off the steroids again, finally. One less med to take is always a bonus. And I don't have to make the trip to Worcester again until September.

There really isn't any bad news which is good. I seem to be stable. I honestly haven't felt this healthy in a few years, but that was true back in January too, before I found out I still have a ticking time bomb in my guts. So I don't really know how to feel about that, nor do I trust my own sense of well being.

And this is where the whine begins.

Cut for b'awwwww )

I know most of you first weekender freaks already know this but Holy Crap Star Trek was made of sweet buttery geekgasmolicious awesome. Like seriously, I might have to see it a few more times and sleep with the DVD under my pillow next to Iron Man when it comes out.

Much spoileriffic squeeage under cut )

So yeah definitely see it if you haven't yet.

You know I must be in a fantastic mood to wake up to a lawnmower outside and with cramps bad enough to actually sort of be dreaming that said lawnmower was slicing open my midsection and not only not be utterly homicidal but downright cheerful. Cheerful plus ow is weird.

Enjoy your Mothers Day folks. :)

Cat scan done. Got a voucher for free breakfast after. Yay.

And now a long leisurely day of forcibly expelling barium and constrast media out of my system. WATER WILL BE DRUNK. Rar.

Lemon flavored barium shake for the lose. Gag.

Yeeeeeeeah... Okay I admit it, I never actually listened to the lyrics of "Raspberry Swirl" before now. I just had one of them thar "did she just sing what I think she sang...?!" moments.

In other amusing music news The Preciousssss seems to be on a terrifying techno kick. Hee, "Cotton Eyed Joe."
kjpepper: (Default)

Very quick before I lose wifi signal. Apparently the consensus on my intestines is something along the lines of OMFGWTF!!!! Emphasis on the WTF bit.

More later, with photoshop and puppets. Maybe.

kjpepper: (yes we can! (obama silly))


kjpepper: (Valentino)

One nice thing about being sick... Valentino curls up in bed with me and turns on his "I'm comforting; pet me" purr on. It helps.

So why did I not know the Invader Zim DVD had Irkan subtitles??

There is cake and people and rock band. Not quite enough booze, plenty of coffee , Zim and missing a couple of people who aren't in the immediate vicinity but who i'm sure are having good new years. I think 2009 is off to a good start indeed.

July 2009
