I e-mailed my assessment instructor to let her know I wasn't feeling well and would not be in class tonight. Yes, there's a quiz on the syllabus, but I don't really care; I'm really not feeling up to sitting through the class tonight.

Well, it's not really the organs. I've been feeling under the weather since I got back from Washington, and I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't have had another ten days' worth of antibiotics last month when my left leg flared up. The problem with that theory is that the leg seems fine - not unusually warm or sensitive to the touch, no unusual swelling - so throwing antibiotics at the problem would most likely be the wrong answer.

Still, I didn't take very good care of the legs and feet while I was out of town. I decided against trying to ship the pressure cuffs, stupidly forgot my moisturizer, didn't pick up any until Sunday, and then didn't use it. I also didn't get nearly enough sleep while I was out east (do I ever?) and spent way too much time on my feet, for which I got a nasty return bout of the sciatica I used to have problems with when I last worked fast food back in '95.
So it's possible something nasty is brewing down there and just hasn't gotten around to erupting forth. In any case, I've been more tired than seems right to me.

As if the legs and feet weren't bad enough by themselves, my right forearm and elbow have been aching these last few weeks, to say nothing of my hand. It could be just RSI from all the trackball and touchpad work I've been doing; it could be arthritis; it could be a little of each.

All in all, an early bedtime tonight seems like the sensible thing to do.

phoenixalpha: the photos turned out very nicely. I'll burn them onto a CD for you, since there's just way too many of them to e-mail...I thought XP had built-in WinZip or some such, but I thought wrong.

tokenfanboy: don't worry. I'll have that stuff written up for you and in the e-mail before I crash.

revolutionaryjo, redmartel, ristance: I found more stuff (AMVs, registrations, art show stuff) that was hiding at the bottom of my work bag, and of course we got some more AMVs in today. It's a real competition! Yay!

Any chance you could open those bad boys up and shoot me the email addresses of those who sent them in? I know at least one dude was worried I wouldn't have his entry in time and I told him if I hadn't emailed him by Monday evening it was safe to assume I didn't get it. So I'd like to let him know if it's in there. :}

Sure. I'll do that after I get the stuff for Brian done. I meant to do it last night and just...failed.

Much appreciated! Just get them to me before 11 if at all possible. That's when I turn into a pumpkin. (Or go to bed so I can get up for work tomorrow. Depends on my mood.)

Also, check out my kickin new icon.

Sorry about that, I crashed and burned last night around 9:30/10 PM after fighting with the desktop, which appears to have forgotten the Internet exists, and completely forgot about this. I'll get it for you in a minute.

Nice icon. I can actually hear him saying "What's wrong with you?". ^^

Can I steal that icon?

Steal away! Credit is appreciated but not mandatory. :)

That icon ROCKS! And it pleases me to know it will infuriate Josh that he's been immortalized in an LJ icon. Bonus!

If only I had seen the cosplay contest at the con last year, I could have been abusing this icon all year round!

Holy crap, the icon drew more comments than the actual post. How often does that happen?

We will spread it all over livejournal, we will.
