A visit from Nancy

Nancy came down today. Met her at the train station and then brought her home to meet Destiny, who surprizingly hardly barked at her at all. lol We pretty much just hung around the house for awhile until Keesje had to leave for work, so we went to the bus stop with her, then Nancy and I continued downtown. Had supper at Copper Penny…mmmmm! Then went to the theatre to see “The Wedding Date”. I found the movie very cute, although some characters weren’t fleshed out that well. But I’d definitely watch it again. Now we’re home and Kees and Nance are watching wrestling. Snore. lol Plans for tomorrow are shopping, yay!

Oh! Nancy brought me an autographed picture of Dayna Manning, which totally rules and now I need to find a frame for it so I can hang it on my wall!

Something wicked this way comes *

I meant to blog yesterday but the internet stopped working on my computer and then I had to go to work…and then I just forgot. lol But anyway, I’m over my cold, thankfully. I was so sick of having Kleenex all over my room. haha Speaking of my room, I put up my Aaliyah, Garbage, authographed Bourne & Kraatz, and Harry Potter posters. Looks so pretty. 😀 Cleaned my desk and shelves up a bit, too.

Oohh, I started re-reading the Harry Potter series. I already finished The Philosopher’s Stone and in between cleaning and playing The Sims 2, I have managed to get through a bit of Chamber of Secrets!

Nancy is coming down on Saturday to visit! We shall have loads of fun, if that is at all possible in this city. lol I can’t wait to go shopping; haven’t gone in ages. And possibly clubbing Saturday night, if we’re up to it. Hopefully the weather stays nice. It rained today, though, so maybe that means we’re in for some crappy weather. *grumbles* Anyway, bedtime as I have to work tomorrow.

Who knew dusting ledges could be so hazardous?

My cold is a bit better. I had to take some medication at work yesterday to stop my nose from running during an 8 hour shift, though. It helped a lot until I started doing some of the “daily duties” that have to be done by the time the store closes. Sweeping under all the mats at the cashes really didn’t help my nose.

I also dusted the ledges around the windows — this is before I swept the mats — and managed to slice open my thumb on the metal siding. It bled and I got a band-aid from the pharmacy but I wasn’t able to clean it properly and with all the dirt from moving mats, my hands were pretty filthy. I could hardly write on the Void/Item Not Found sheets because I couldn’t bend my thumb very well. The band-aid fell off when I was cleaning the conveyor belts at my cash at the end of the night and starting bleeding again but the pharmacy was closed so I couldn’t get a replacement band-aid. And of course we don’t have any at home.

This morning the cut opened up and bled a bit again so I rinsed my thumb under the tap, dabbed on Polysporin, and wrapped some Kleenex around my thumb and taped it on! 😀

Not feeling so hot

Yet another headache. And this time it is accompanied by a cold. I woke up yesterday with a scratchy throat and by the time I got to work, it had turned into a cold. It was just awful trying to serve customers and sniffling and then going upstairs to blow my nose. Then after work I went over to Kendra’s, and the cold seemed to get worse. Luckily today is my day off, and I’ve managed to sleep, but now I’m bored of sleeping and I want to read, but my head hurts. And here I am on the computer which isn’t making my head any better. But at least sitting upright isn’t making my nose run. I haven’t had a cold in so long that I forgot how horrible they are. If I’m not feeling any better by tomorrow I’ll call in sick. And maybe it’s about time we got some Advil or something in this house. Ugh.

So very tired

My head is pounding right now. This headache has come and gone for two days. There’s no ibuprofen in the house and I didn’t work today so I couldn’t pick any up from work. I should go to bed, as that helped yesterday.

Still working on transferring the domain name figuristka.org to Netrillium. I didn’t realize it would be so complicated with getting authorization keys, etc. Argh. I hope it goes through okay before the domain expires.
