Staying home today 'cause Gus is really not acting himself; ever since I got home last night around 6, he's been lethargic without sleeping, not eating much (will eat treats though), meows like he's in pain sometimes when you touch around his head but not consistently enough to spot where it hurts...

His nose is dry, I can't tell his temp without a thermometer, and at least to me his gums seem kind of pale. He seems to be avoiding everyone lately, too; when I found him last night, he was downstairs in Mindy's laundry basket, and I don't usually find him there. This morning, after I brought him back downstairs, I found him in my room again hiding underneath my futon. :\ He just seems so tired and sore. I've got a walk-in with the vet scheduled at 11, and Max is going to drive me, but now I'm freaked out that it's going to be some sort of problem I can't afford to pay for. Luckily I did just pay my credit card.. I have at least $30 to pay with other than the $96 I have saved for rent, unless Max can afford to let the $78 I owe her for bills slide.

*sigh*

AWWWWWW YEEEEEEAH.

There are few moments in our lives that call for greater compassion and companionship than when a loved one is admitted to the hospital. In these hours of need and moments of pain and anxiety, all of us would hope to have a hand to hold, a shoulder on which to lean -- a loved one to be there for us, as we would be there for them.

Yet every day, all across America, patients are denied the kindnesses and caring of a loved one at their sides -- whether in a sudden medical emergency or a prolonged hospital stay. Often, a widow or widower with no children is denied the support and comfort of a good friend. Members of religious orders are sometimes unable to choose someone other than an immediate family member to visit them and make medical decisions on their behalf. Also uniquely affected are gay and lesbian Americans who are often barred from the bedsides of the partners with whom they may have spent decades of their lives -- unable to be there for the person they love, and unable to act as a legal surrogate if their partner is incapacitated.


I love having a president who GETS IT.

Rock on, Mr. President.

The Debate Rages On: Digital or Paper?
Citadel
popehippo
I have been thinking about buying a Nook for a little while now.

On the one hand, I feel like a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to book. I like the feel of pages between my fingers, that smell of fresh paper, the nice solid weight of a good-sized book. I'm really fond of old, dog-eared books. Seeing them all along my shelves makes me proud and -- I admit it -- a little vain; it tells me "look at these books you've read! Don't you feel smarter, don't you feel better? These books say who you are!". I get a good feeling of seeing books on my shelf, all the colors and sizes, and all those memories of reading them.

But on the other, growing-more-heavy hand, I'm notoriously picky when it comes to cleanliness and care for my books. I'm kind of a bitch; I don't like loaning out books, and I fret incessantly when I do. Will I get them back? In good condition? And when I do have them anyway, I don't read them when I eat or bathe or anything because I always manage to get them wet or stained with something, and that stain mocks me forever. A Nook can loan out books to friends, and also lets me read some of the book before I even buy it. As a person who hates just browsing for books off the shelf, this sounds awwwwwwwwwesome.

Moving to Columbus has also robbed me of a lot of shelf space as well; back home, I had four huge shelves all able to fit my dozens of books. Now, I have one shelf, and it's about time to get another, before the other 80% of my books that haven't gotten hear yet reach me. It's made me think more about the space in my room; could I fit other things there? I'd like a chair, maybe, to sit back and relax in. I definitely need a bigger dresser. Put some of the stuff I have stuffed into my dresser out on the shelves and such, too! If I could get rid of the books that could be bought on an Ebook, I could cut that space needed in half. It would make moving to our next place so, SO much easier.

And a greener side of me thinks 'but just think of all the trees that wouldn't be cut down if, someday in the future, all books are digital!', and I kind of like that idea. But, then, we need plants to make said Ebooks. It's 50/50, I guess.

I also like the idea of having it when I travel; I like to take alot of books for company, especially since my laptop Yoshi died, and carrying them around is heavy, troublesome to keep them from getting ripped and bent, and all around bothersome. I leave books at work because it's annoying to constantly carry them around, but then I want them at home or worry about them being taken or lost.

It also means no more having to go all the way out to Polaris or Easton to buy a new book that I want, and then finding that maybe they don't have it; I can get it almost immediately, at home, and not have to wait for restocks. If I can't find the book on a Nook, I can go and order it online/buy it from the store, and once it does come out on Kindle, donate the book to a charity. This is probably what would happen to a lot of my books if I did get it, and I like the idea that I could pass on those books to adults and kids who really want to read but can't afford them, digital or otherwise.

But even then, it's hard to pull away from tradition. Trying out new technology can always be risky. But, then, I thought for the longest time that I'd never use an iPod because I just didn't care about music all that much. Now I use it at least 3 - 4 times every single DAY. Maybe I just need to pull up my feet and move on past 'real' books?

I'm still kinda torn. Thoughts from anyone who has gotten a Kindle or Nook, bad or good?

But I don't have a problem with that because I think it's a good point to make. ... If you were born with a uterus then nature made you an incubator.

Go go credit card application #2! This one's going through Chase, which I wanted to avoid, but I'm not sure who else would take me with such a huge lack of history. If that doesn't work out, I'm either gonna have to start buying a shit ton of Lane Bryant clothes and paying it off because that's literally the only card I have with 'credit', or try to take out an auto loan with the place where Max got her car or with Chase. x_x I wanna go back in time and find the person who thought this whole thing up and punch him in the groin.

I'm kinda glad we're going out of town to Indianapolis on Sunday. I need time out of the house so I can stop freaking out over stuff that I can't entirely handle. But it's just so... Argh.

MAX HAS THE BEST RELATIVES EVER.

*Me, Melissa, Max, and Max's 8-year-old niece Hannah are watching Sandlot.

BOYS IN MOVIE: They say he was less than a god, but more than a man.

ME: That would make him a demigod. :O

HANNAH: No, that'd make him a woman.

*dies* And she picked this icon.

So I'm checking my email, and I've got a thing from Facebook, alerting me that Siona has friended me!

Super!

Wait, I friended myself. No, wrong last name.

Am I being invited to a secret society of Siona-s? Is there a Hogwarts for those women (and men?), but instead of wizards, they all have parents who were big Dune fans?

Maybe it's a support system. God knows I need group therapy after all the times I've had to spell out my name. It's not Seona. It's not Soina. It's not Sienna. WHERE DO YOU GET THE I, E, AND EXTRA N? D8

Or perhaps we are finally banding together! As one, we will rise up against the keychain companies. The hat companies. The shirt companies. The ones that make all those damn named items that, as a child, we searched through in vain only to realize that no. No, they did not give a rat's ass for us poor Siona-s. But now we seek not trivial items for our own self-vanity. WE SEEK REVENGE.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Totally random fact!

I've eaten pizza, and just pizza, for 24 hours.

.... I can't say I'm complaining, but I can't say I'm happy about it either. XD

And I just found out that we probably have 4 more weeks of internet because of the money situation in the house. 4 more weeks, and I will probably be without the only thing that keeps me in touch with all of my friends. That keeps me busy in the long, long hours where I have absolutely nothing else to do. That keeps me sane.

Fuck. Just, fuck.

._.

I'm sorry guys. I know that like every post I've made since January has been nothing but bitching, whining and moaning. But... christ, I can't think up anything happy to post anymore. I'm sorry.

Being sick makes me so classy. I'm wearing a black pirate shirt with rips under the arms, blue pajama pants with chinese dragons on them, and pink socks with black and white cows on them. Ohhhhh, yeah, go me. @B@

Annnnyway, I thought I'd finally upload all my pics from November to now. Whee~

WARNING: PIC SPAMCollapse )

I don't think Vision Research will ever understand that I need to be called at 2:30-ish not to come in at 3, but at 4. ~3~

I've been taking a good hard look at selling my car, too. It'd never survive a drive to Wisconsin... I bet I could get at least $600 for it. I mean, we replaced a battery, two tires, the radio works great, the inside is clean and spiffy, the lights and windshield are fine... Maybe even more than $600. Hrm, maybe, I'll have to discuss it with the parent-folk.

RIP Carlin. RIP. ;_;
