So the best way to reach me is still on the telephone.
Knees have been acting up again, left one has gone wonky on me a 'couple times since I last posted. My depression is high. My self-esteem is lower than usual. But I'm trying to get back to whatever passes for normal for me. *wry grin* I think I can do it, but it's going to take time, especially after the loss of another friend recently. It feels like, in some ways, I'm back to the weirdness and moodswings that were occurring in January. Which sucks, but I am making every effort to go at things with a touch of sarcasm and cuteness. ;-D
I'm headed for Balticon this weekend, so those of you who read this will find me there and hopefully pass around a few much-needed hugs. I will, of course, too. :-) Taking the Acela train down from Boston, which should be interesting, as the last time I took a train was approximately 20 years ago. Needless to say, Amtrak didn't have the Acela speedy train thingie back then. ;-D Am nervous about packing things, even angry at myself for not starting yet, but have some laundry yet to do. :P On the other hand, at least I'm not posting this on Wed. night! (leaving Thursday, coming back Tuesday...so hopefully I will get some sleep and general relaxation in the bookmark days.) (bookmark days? Gads, I read too much. ;-)
I've finally gotten a call from my student dentist person, I'll try to reach her tomorrow, so as to hopefully have an appointment the week after I return. I'm vexed that it's taking so damnnably long, but I can understand that the seniors had to get in all their last-minute clinic hours before they graduated. ::P Anybody got spare painkillers? ;-) Actually, it's more my legs and back bothering me than my teeth, but I'm being paranoid. I seem to have hurt myself at the last few conventions in one way or another, and I'd really really like for it not to happen again! (please, world?;-)
The little hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant in Medford Square has grown...it now has seating! I'm hoping I have enough money left after the con to get dinner there. (I doubt it, I let out my spend-a-holic at cons, but...I did leave a small hunk of cash in the checking account, in case I need it later.) (budget? What's that??? *heh* I'm working on it. Not budgeting well enough to have a real cellphone yet, but hopefully by the end of the year I can get one. Probably won't be an iPhone or anything, but I'm looking at going with ATT/Cingular anyway, in hopes of upgrading eventually.)
Jeremy's taking time off from around the 5th or so of June. Contemplating a short trip to Vermont in there somewhere, but otherwise I'm sure he'd be glad to have folks around to play videogames with and/or Magic the Gathering with. I'm generally around for telephone calls in the evening after 8 or so, except, of course, for the con. I want to go see movies, eat food, and generally get OUT of the house with him. Maybe even the Boston Science Museum. :-) I'm sure I won't be this fidgety after the con, but I'm willing to bet that he will be.
Looks like I can pack my CPAP individually on the train and not have it count as luggage, so I'll even be able to bring a small stuffed animal or two. ;-) I'm getting seriously antsy about this trip. I'm scared that I won't know enough people, and the ones that I do, I won't remember the names of....heck, I have problems remembering my own damn name! ;-) Whole new environment, which I know on one level will be instantly familiar to me, but still quite nerve-wracking. Any ideas on how to get to the hotel there without spending a mint-and-a-half to transport my scooter? Anyway, I'm babbling and I have to go put the dresses in the wash so they'll be able to dry before the con....hopefully more soonest.
