I scribbled over my Master Number and such.

I have been putting my trials with my road tests on a previous entry, but yep; passed yesterday!

I wasn't very nervous taking it, but was prior as the driving instructor puts me right on edge and grates at me. But taking it I was calm. I passed well below the allowed mistake points and the examiner was proud of my perpendicular park, how I handled 3 motorcycles running a red light while I was already turning in the intersection, & that I put my turn signal on+shoulder checked when we came to a car parked in the middle of the road.

I think I was just too fed-up to be hella nervous this time. I had the attitude of "let's just get it over with". I didn't expect to pass but I didn't think I'd do really bad either. I was more confident but not self-confident.

Middleton's Registry of Motor Vehicles no longer has a permanent examiner after the one they had suddenly left the job. So they gave been getting in whoever else is available meaning they have a huge backlog.

The first time I was a mess and the examiner didn't know the Middleton area at all. )

The second examiner was so nice but I had a lot of stress and made too many little mistakes. )

The 3RD time I was more practiced & feeling more confident! )

It felt hella surreal when I was paying for my new graduated license like it felt like that couldn't possibly be what was actually happening. I held the still warm freshly printed license in my hands and so much weight was off of me.

This will make employment ability much more reachable and a better living situation for me & my babies feel possible. Everything has felt so pointless. I still owe the driving school money from my last extra lesson and they're ransoming my defensive driving certificate until they get paid. So I can't get insurance sorted until I have that certificate. But I feel so accomplished!

When I got back all 3 of my gorgeous cats were laying on the chesterfield and it made me so happy to see them first thing.

Nicolas: Lestat? Oh my God!
Lestat: Ahh! It's been too long!
Nicolas: And your looking well!
Lestat: And you! So Parisian!
Nicolas: And you, lord of the hunt! Is it true you took down six wolves on your own?
Lestat: Eight, actually~ But what happened in Paris? There are rumours of an unnatural love affair.
Nicolas: It's true. I disgraced myself.--With the violin~ When my father found out I sold my books to take up music he dragged me back here. He says he will break my hands if I ever play again!
Lestat: Mine is just the same. ... Nicolas~ I'm leaving~
Nicolas: I just got back, where are you planning to go?
Lestat: I don't know! I haven't even thought that far ahead! I just know I'll go mad or kill someone if I don't escape.
Nicolas: There's no choice then. We'll go to Paris~

I decided to Friends' Lock the entry I posted these pictures in originally due to it concerning my biological mother's work, but here are the pictures in an entry by themselves now too.

Anyway we were all dressed-up, so here are some pictures of me in my purple George dress & of me holding my brats. Nicki followed me around the whole time I was getting ready to go adn when I came back and we joked that he probably wanted to come with me.



I recently got SoftPaws for Nick as I've had to take Minnow to the vets' 3 times due to scratched eyes, and he has ripped holes in so many of my good clothes. They are just on his hind claws as though I clip my brats' nails his hind claws are really thick and he can puncture things with them even if they are cut. He managed to get 2 off the 3RD day, and pulled on them the first few but he seems to have gotten use to them. I got him purple as if I give him a choice of a bunch of toys he will almost always choose the ourple or orange ones (Lydia chooses pink, and Minnow isn't as select). I painted my toenails to match his claw caps yesterday too. He came over to me when I showed him, sniffed my toes, and rubbed against my legs.

One of my favourite pictures of one of my favourite "DRAMATICAL Murder" characters {because he's a dork [and because his Scrape problems hit chords for my problems (though originally because he looked like Alfred only with tidier hair & ridiculous tattoos)]}:



I stayed-up hella late the 13TH because it was storming here & Nicki was wanting attention. So I stayed-up & read, then spent most of Saint Valentine's Day with painkillers and sleeping. I had asked my mom previously to pick-up whatever dessert was on special at The Eggplant Café when she got off work because last year the sold out fast [it was chocolate cheesecake], and when she got was 2 huge chocolate cupcakes (one for each of us). I ate a bit of one when I got up and didn't feel well at all after because it was so rich D: I had to go check the mail & pick-up C batteries for my Valentine's present and felt like I was going to vomit while doing so. Frozen pizzas weren't on sale at Graves' ValuFoods so I didn't get one despite having been craving pepperoni pizza for over a week (I couldn't justify to myself buying a slice from Mama Sofia's when on sale a whole frozen one is cheaper).

Cupcake on Twitpic

When I got back I was all excited to set-up the Cat's Meow I got as a gift from The Grant's. I got Nicolas & Lydia all excited too, and started taking a video with my Nintendo 3DS (dirt in my camera's lens). Well the screw was made of cheap metal, but my problem was I didn't have the hand strength at all to turn my screwdriver (or open a stupid bottle of apple juice). So I asked adoptive sister to do it, and she ended-up stripping the screw head so that it couldn't come out. Luckily my mom was still visiting so she took me over to exchange it. Also luckily they had one in a beat-up box that they were alright exchanging since both would be hard to sell. But when I got back I couldn't get it turned at all either. My weakness & aches have been getting worse, expecially the lack of hand strength. Not being able to do the one good thing in awhile I was super excited for was the last straw and I just broke-down because of the fears, stress, events, et cetera, et cetera. I planned to try sitting & throw myself into Bloodlines & Alexander to take my mind off myself & other characters, but adoptive sister decided to be snarky about me being upset and I just lost the will to even turn my laptop on. Finally with determination though the screw came out (relatedly; the screw is pointless in the toy because the battery compartment also has one of those plastic latches)). So I spent the rest of the evening watching all 3 of my brats playing with their new toy, and fixing it whenever they pulled the wand out of its socket, or Nick was sitting on the motor. I also had to sew the yellow flappy thing because they got the seam out from around the hem of it, and the wire that keeps it rigid was poking out.

Got it! on Twitpic Adorable brats. on Twitpic Ass!cat. on Twitpic

Watching my brats play instantly improved my mood, and after watching them for a few hours I went to bed. This is actually the first time in over 24 hours my laptop has been on, and I'm only awake right now because I'm uncomfortable & a bit nauseous. My back is getting a lot better, and as I mentioned in my #Bloodlines2014 posts I'm getting so I can sit for about an hour at a time without it bothering too much (still can't lay on my back, which is why I'm uncomfortable right now as I rolled onto it while asleep). It's mostly discomfort than pain now too, but I am still having to be careful with not overdoing things like lifting heavy stuff. I watched the "Maoyū Maō Yūsha" anime though (behind on "Coronation Street" due to the Hayley business). I decided to watch it after reading that it had a female knight character in it, and was doing with the same cast as "Spice and Wolf". Well said Knight is so awesome O: It didn't fully end with the ending though, more satisfying than the "Spice and Wolf" one, and with the idea that things will continue on off-screen. It also is just from last year so maybe a sequel or OVA is possible. There are light novel & manga series too (like the Holo & merchant story), but I'd rather watch anime (and why I haven't read the Holo & merchant ones).

Anyway; now off to attempt *sleeps-sleeps* as I'm drifting-off despite things. I've got to take the Cat's Meow .AVIs off my 3DS & Windows Movie Maker them, but I plan to upload them.

Well I have no Internet at my residence until at least Friday. I doubt anyone really cares, but yeah. Bell-Aliant came to fix our landline telephone today (faulty wire making reception hella noisy/crackly) and told us we`d lose service for a bit. I lost Internet then, but figured that was part of losing service. I went out with my mom for groceries and expected it back when I returned. It wasnt. It connects to my wireless but cannot the Internet. I got their support line and the guy I spoke to suspects the technician didnt connect it back right. I had to get my mom to take me to the Bridgetown Library`s parking lot to leech their wireless tonight [Luckily they leave it on even when closed still! (I worried they wouldn`t since moving location)!], and will have to tomorrow, and maybe Boxing Day. I want to finish the EBZ advent, and I had to make a PayPal payment. I`ve done everyday on Lorrie & Robin, except I only did the Rat of Glory one on Robin (who has since sent it away). I have failed at my own Kinder Surprise advent calendar though. I think I am 5 days behind now. I posted the 1ST part of "On Meeting An Inquiry Agent" & a painting of Calcifer at [livejournal.com profile] ladys_rambles. I cannot post the 2ND part tonight as planned, but maybe tomorrow. I realised I did the `sentence. sentence. sentence.` thing I sometimes do that annoys me when I reread things later. But at least I got stuff wrote (almost 4 years later).

I reread "Howl`s Moving Castle" last week, so that is 3 times this year--4 if you count an audiobook (with finally a narator doing a Welsh accent for Howl!). I also finally read "Castle In The Air". It was alright, but I didnt like the protagonist as much as Sophie, and the "everyone marries" didnt make as much sense as in the first book, and annoyed me with the Princess Beatrice part. Howl`s first exclaimation on holding his son for the first time was my favourite part though. Well maybe pregnant Lettie`s & old Ben`s interaction. I was glad that the moe-moe *blush-blush* scene at then end of the first book lead to something, despite a bigger age difference than Sophie/Howl. Also glad Lettie didnt end-up with Prince Justin whom seemed a bit of a jerk in Lettie`s talking about him buying a spell. I regret not writing the author a letter when she was still alive. I always cry when I think about such.

EDIT---
Got Internet back around 1:00PM. It was a 2 minute job the technician said. The other guy just didn't plug the wire back in the wall at the local office, and the support guy I called Christmas Eve could have checked. Sales compensated me by crediting next month's Internet bill (which my Guthixian self fines very fair since I have had skittery Internet with the landline troubles since November too, plus the 4 days without any).

Jeremy gave me the 1ST Skylanders 3DS game for Christmas plus 5 Skylanders. I am lacking 3 elements though so I'm getting bottlenecked with what I can do now as most of the element challenges I have left are for Water, Earth, & Technology. I'm loving it though! I feel so cool summoning one of the figures into the game. You tap the portal, aim the 3DS at it, place a figure on it, and then hold it steady. Jeremy picked-out the ones I would have picked myself so that was really cool too! He got me Stealth Elf [Life], Ignitor [Fire]. Sonic Boom [Air], Hex [Undead], & Dark Spyro [Magic]. 4/5 have tragic back-stories though. Stealth Elf & Ignitor are my default team so far; her name makes me grin at the rhyming, and his could be Igknightor as he's a knight. It's a good team as he is more tank & she is fast with a long-range attack. I did what I did in Dream Drop Distance with them even which is ace levels that I'm under the recommended level for.

Here is Nicki & Lydie:

Well another post, this time I plan to update on my health since I got more results back on Monday. I'm still feeling pointless though. )

Since the late winter/early spring I've felt so tired. Like not even just depressed tired. But I've had very little energy, and weak with hand strength & such. I at first just figured it was because I had given-up. I had a lot of stress & painful removals in the spring (and more recently), and I thought that I was so tired because I didn't feel much point with anything anymore. But I asked my doctor for bloodwork because it could also be my anaemia being a jerk. Well the first bloodwork showed my Iron was fine, but my white blood cell count was high. So another test, and one for a stomach ulcer, and no infection was found but the white blood cells were even higher. Waited 2 weeks and another test with again the count was high. I've been tested for mono', and that's been negative. No urinary track infections or flus. So Dr. Yafai thinks it could be a warning for something to develop with my bone marrow, like leukemia. I've got to go for bloodwork every 3 months now, and if the count reaches 20,000 he'll have my marrow tested. I have now had my blood tested 4 times in the past 3 months and on average it has been around 15,000.

I also had to see Dr. Ruddy (an ear's nose & throat specialist with a thick Scottish accent) because of that lump Dr. Saunders found, & I've also been having spells of a tightness in my throat & trouble swallowing. Usually the things I have trouble with are things neither liquid or solid--like soup or milkshakes. I had an endoscopy done, and I fucking hate them. It gave me the creeps because it felt like a long, thin snake was going down my throat. He didn't use anesthetic so I had a sore throat for days after too. He thought it might be my stomach causing some of it so on Thanksgiving weekend I also had to go do a barium X-ray/follow-through which is my least favourite test so far. I had one back in 2006 & couldn't keep the barium down, and this time I had to drink 2 smaller cups (one while standing, and one through a straw while laying down), and then 2 large ones in the waiting area (also take gas crystals to start, so my stomach was inflated). My body seems to reject me drinking it, like my throat wanting to close-off (it has the texture of paint or school glue, and a sweet, chemically taste to go with the paint+glue). So it took me awhile to drink it all. I was getting very angry at my mother going "come on, come on, get this show on the road!" and having a huffy fit while waiting. We also had to wait a long time to even begin because there was a problem with the equipments' generator. Anyway I got it all done, but felt hella nauseous (and kept tasting the barium in my burps). I had pizza but it didn't help, but I did spend the rest of the day at Mattsles, and mostly played "Killer Is Dead". His mother made meatloaf and that at least got rid of the bad taste.

I had a pounding headache when I got back, but I thought it was just the long day (my appointment was at 7:45AM & I got up around 6:00AM), and playing video-games on a big screen television that's also starting to darken with age. I had a bath & ate some French onion soup, took headache pills, and went right to sleep. But I still felt awful the next day. And by the end of it I was having awful intestinal cramps & bright pastel yellow+goldenrod diarrhea. And I couldn't keep much food down, or feel awful after eating. By Sunday I was also sweating profusely. After dinner on Monday I called 811 (Nova Scotia's HealthLink), and the registered nurse thought I might have had a tear somewhere, and the barium leaked into my system. She recommended I go to outpatients immediately. So after being wishy-washy about it for a couple hours, I got my mother to drive me up. I took my laptop & played DMMd for most of the wait. After 4 hours I finally was saw a Dr. Nick [well last name 'Optoff'(sp?) but he wanted to be called Dr. Nick--not sure if he liked "The Simpsons" or not. He was young & blue-eyed with curly blonde hair though. Dressed in the navy blue emergency uniform]. He diagnosed I was having a bad reaction to the barium. So he got a nurse named Paul to put my on IV. I had Gravol (which fucking burned), something like Advil that started with a 'T', lots of saline, & some dialodid(sp?). 2 of those by needles to my hip & the fatty part of my arm. My mom has in the past left me places, and 2 more hours had passed, so though mostly out of it from the Gravol+opioid I got Paul to go check that my mother was still there. She was pissy until she saw that I was on IV. I had to wait even after the 2ND saline because Paul didn't know if Dr. Nick wanted me to stay & have fluids. But it was fine so I got my mom to carry my stuff because I couldn't walk well & we left. I also got my first Hallowe'en Tim Horton's doughnut of the year on the way back. Actually 2, and I ate one when I got back plus a freezer panini sandwich, & a bag of cheese puffs because my stomach was settled so I was ravenous. I sle0t excellently that night. No dreams, or painful feelings beforehand, just the blackness of sleep. I'm mostly over it now, but I've still got a bit of a bruise on my left arm (couldn't find a good vein in my inner elbow, so had it in my wrist, but fuck it bled a lot & I think the Gravol caused more bruising/irritation), and my digestion isn't back to normal yet. Dr. Nick wondered if something could be up with my spleen to cause all the bruising I've been having & all the bleeding at minor things. Feeling around it didn't seem swollen though. But anyway, I'll probably have to have a different contrast medium for an X-ray in the future though.

---

You may have missed that I said "my laptop". Well my accountant Mr. Brian Neville gave me his old work laptop. I named it "R-2E-054" after Clear's original serial number. It's a Sony Vaio from 2010-2011 with Windows 7. He told me years ago I could have his old work computer (the company pays every few years), but the model couldn't easily be wiped so he couldn't give it to me. But he said the next one I could have instead. Well I didn't count on it, but about a month ago Debbie (who works the desk, but isn't a secretary. She has the credentials to sell/file/process insurance, but mostly does secretary work) called me early one morning. She said Brian had left a box for me on his desk, and I could pick it up when I was around. I expected his even older work laptop which he keeps bolted to his office desk to be there, but instead it was he more recent one. It has nicks & such from wear, but he even had all the little twist-ties for the cords still in the box. I started having problems with my Shaglehod so I've been glad to have it (first it was forgetting my settings & failing at recognising my harddrives, then a svchost.exe problem with it using 100% CPU). I've mostly just played DMMd & used Twitter via Janetter though. My ACNL post was made with it though.

---

As in my previous post, I got "Animal Crossing: New Leaf" on the 15TH. Now on those fears with it & on other things )

---

As for my own Hallowe'en events, I've been doing a lot this year since I don't know how my health will be next year, et cetera, et cetera. I went to see the Kentville Pumpkin People (and need to go retake pictures of an inflatable handsom cab outside Greenwood after the pictures corrupted when I Moved instead of Copied with that svchost.exe error and the lag turned my external harddrive off). I have pictures, but I can't get enough of a feeling that it matters to upload them. I did upload some to Twitpic though { http://twitpic.com/photos/Lady_Noremon }. I've also been eating a lot of Hallowe'en doughs from Tim Horton's. They have Boston cream ones with sprinkles & a sugar print-out circle on them. I've mostly had the bat & black cat ones. My main plan is tonight though where I'm going to a haunted house at the MacDonald museum in Middleton. I have a costume for Clear from "DRAMATICAL Murder" together, but I didn't like how my old Killua wig looked, so I ordered a proper wig and as of yesterday it still hasn't arrived. It may be in the may mail this morning, but the mail doesn't get sorted until 10:30AM-ish. I really was excited to dress-up as Clear for the haunted house, but if the wig isn't there today I guess I'll go without a costume. If it's not there tomorrow I'll have to use the Killua one. I did wash it at least, so it's ready. Most of the costume is stuff I already had, so it isn't all that accurate, but I still am giddy about dressing-up as him. I couldn't afford a Avon S10 gas mask (and when I saw the cheaper i had to go to Halifax so responsibly didn't buy one then), but I did by a clear plastic umbrella. If I knew some near a military depot type store, I'd ask them to look for me. My mom thought she'd take me to Annapolis Royal on the 31ST (they go all out, and I thought since I'm short/young looking I could sneak a bit of trick-or-treating in too), but she couldn't get the day off work, so I guess I'm handing-out candy instead. I hung ghosts out in the chestnut tree yesterday, and have 2 pumpkins to carve today or tomorrow. I don't know what to carve in them :/ I usually design my own patterns.

EDIT---
Well my ordered wig didn't arrive, so I wore my old Killua one. It didn't look the best, but it was better than nothing. I really enjoyed dressing-up as Clear. I'd actually like to do it more properly someday. The haunted house was kind of stupid & offensive (middle-school students acting like they thought mental patients would). Even the storyteller they had as terrible (I stayed for "The Yellow Ribbon" but then there was one about a man chopping limbs off his family's dog). But there was a lot on the first floor for little kids though, like face paint & macaroni art. I wore a gold opera mask for most of it because there was a bigger crowd than expected, and I didn't want to be recognised (a lot of the bullies I had in school now have kids & I worried they'd be there). I'm glad my mother decided to wait around because I was done with the place before 7:00PM :/ I did like the fake books they had stuck on the museum's gift shop shelves. One was like "How To Easily Train Your Black Cat" which made me think of my Lydie. And they gave me a purple (my favourite colour) glow bracelet at least. Also I seem to have snagged my white boots on something there because I had a hole in them when I got back, so I'm pissed about that too. My first time wearing them (I had to take the price tags off that day ffs), and I got them from Zellers years ago. There was all kinds of stuff in the hallways that brush against people, so I suspect that was what caused it (It looks like a cup hook mark).

Also I forgot that Tuesday I got my 2 pumpkins for jack-o'-lanterns, and while I was waiting for the seller's help (Avery's sells them by the pound up but no more than $5.00), a woman interrupted and snootily pointed at the 2 I had & goes "I want that one, and that one.". I told her I had already picked them out & was just waiting to pay, so she got right huffy & gave me dirty looks the whole time it took to pay/load them into the car. On Thursday afternoon I carved that Sock's (cute cat) pattern into one, but didn't know what to carve into the 2ND. I then remembered the screenshot of Clear when he punches the brainwashed Morpheus Ribstez members (I didn't want to do another gas mask where I carved 999!Zero last year, but I only had a few minutes before trick-or-treater time). So I went to print it off, but my printer decided to be out of ink. So I freehanded it instead by looking at the image on my 3DS for reference. Luckily since I've been making my own patterns for around 10 years, I know well how much space is needed to maintain integrity, et cetera, et cetera (that probably wasn't explained well). I'll try to get myself pumped enough to make a proper pattern of it someday. I haven't even uploaded my design from last year though.

As can be seen in the next entry, I decorated more, including a "Ghostbusters" singing ghost. That video was taken before I hung my window lights up (the ones I won in elementary school for a pumpkin I carved then), or got the Clear pumpkin set-up. I took pictures after though that I'll try to upload. I didn't get many of myself though. I didn't take the brats out for a walk in the morning as I planned to either, but I did put festive collars on them for an hour-ish. Lydia didn't have a good time this year, unlike last year. She acted very scared the whole evening, and I was even worried she'd have some sort of spell. She just wasn't herself until yesterday (Friday, November 1ST), and was tired all morning. I told her she wasn't a very good black Hallowe'en cat, but I was worried about her. Timid Nicki on the other hand was quite perky (and as can be seen in the next entry, still loves pumpkins). Minnow even ran outside while I was setting-up the Clear pumpkin. And surprised me by running to the vack door to come back in after I said to her that it wasn't a good time at all to escape (Hallowe'en).

On my way! on Twitpic Me in front of that hansom cab, on Twitpic Cat on Twitpic I freehanded a carving of Clear. #DMMd on Twitpic

I brought stuff in around 9:00PM, and reheated garlic fingers & got ready to watch the 1922 "Nosferatu". I had been drinking diluted perry most of the evening (after having it with supper), and had the rest with it too so got quite contently tipsy. I also ate cookies I had baked the day before (chocolate chip oatmeal with Reece's Pieces in them too). I love in the 1922 retelling that Jonathan kisses a picture of Nina (Mina) while scared in his room (right after the count menaced him by being weird about blood from a cut Jonathan had). I also love in the novel how he makes notes of trivial things to tell Mina, and being the character that types the diaries up she even keeps the notes in it. I dislike consensual/actively seeking each other Dracula/Mina, preferring my loyal light of all lights Mina (the Van Helsing conversation is where Lorrie's 'lights in the darkness' comes from). So it contents me that in the 1922 silent film they take it so far that she breaks the Nosferatu curse. I love Mina. Sure she can be stupid at times (not getting that of course Lucy could be wandering around in just her nightdress without shoes on), and cares too much about what people think. But she is so clever & level-headed. I know some people dislike her "I want to be an excellent wife & help my husband!", but I don't. Anyway, if you can see "Nosferatu" I recommend it. I bought it on DVD off ebay for about $3.00USD XD And just as I finished Tom really surprised me by inviting me to his New Leaf town for pieces of the Spooky set, so I got comfortable again & did. His villagers kept ambushing me (the Hallowe'en event was on in HoleTown, but I'd set my Nintendo 3DS clock back so Frampton's hadn't begun yet). I ended-up running from them from place to place like from monsters. Limburgh(sp?) & Teddy still changed part of my outfit into the patchwork set though. My lovely cute outfit :( (white lily, purple glasses, beaded top, black formal skirt, black stockings, & black tasselled loafers). I did buy a princess dress & other cute things in HoleTown though. I still haven't done the Hallowe'en event in Frampton though. Too tired Thursday, hopped-up on muscle relaxants Friday, so may get to today. I'm not feeling the game enough to really go out of my way, so :/

Lastly I guess I'll ramble about the findings with Dr. Saunders. The X-rays showed that the bone may not connect right, but is inmgood shape & not worn down/deteriorated as I feared. She also found that my sternocleidomastoid & masseter muscles are hella tight, like she compared the neck ones to guitar or cello strings made of meat. She doesn't know if the tightness is caused my the jaw irritation or the tightness causes the increased irritation. But any way she put me on a soft food diet (which I've mostly been following, except for chewy bread/crust, and notice when I don't follow it. Like I had something sticky earlier in the week and felt how much my muscles hurt when I used my tongue to get it off my teeth), and wrote me a referral for massage therapy to try to loosen the muscles. She also recommended a bite plate to try, but at $1,200+ dollars for something that might not help and isn't covered by my insurance, I'm going to pass on it--I don't want one anyway. If massage therapy doesn't work she has that I should talk with Dr. Saxon about injections for pain & also Botox to help the muscles. I'm also to stay on my Vimovo for inflammation. She doesn't think surgery should be thought of until I've tried a lot of other things, so we'll see. The surgery would be to break & align my jaw how it should be in the left socket. But it'd also be $10,000-ish & hella painful with other risks. At least the instances where I'd lose hearing & be unable to eat have been fewer now. Dr. Saunders also felt something like a cyst in my neck where I've been having trouble, but Dr. Ruddy doesn't think it needs treatment as it is.

I also got my knee brace ordered from Sole's Provider, but haven't gone to pick it up (because I'm waiting for a refund from SunLife so I'll have the funds). I also finally broke-down and got lenses of my new prescription put in my old spare frames. I haven't been able to find eyeglass frames I like, so at least I liks my spares & only wore them a few times. My right eye (my 'good' eye, my left has an astigmatism. I'm also nearsighted) has gotten worse since my last examination & I have had trouble reading books in this dark old house, so now I can see better. I had my last pair of eyeglasses since 2007 (but had examinations after that, though the prescriptions expired due to me not finding frames). I still need to get the nose piece replaced with something like my old pair though, as this is a bit too tall & I see it out of the corner of my eye and think my glasses are dirty/I've got Kleenex snagged in it.

EDIT---
Oh and we had a rain & wind storm Thursday & Friday so I doubt I'll get to go to that corn maze this year because it's probably been flattened/ruined by said storm.

EDIT---
I've uploaded some pictures & linked to the PhotoBucket album in the next post after this.
ladynoremon: (Boy Blue)
Since Photobucket is changing over tomorrow (I hate 'infinite scroll'), I went through & uploaded a bunch of photographs I had been meaning to for ages (some since 2011), or that were uploaded on my Facebook. For some reason scrambling filenames turned itself back on (I had disabled it as soon as it could be), but I only noticed after I had uploaded over 500 pictures :/

ALSO here again are the clothes I am trying to give away, or find a charity to donate to where they will actually be given to people instead of sold. They are all in great condition, most only washed and never worn (I lost weight or lost interest), or still with the tags on them.

EDIT---
Nicki had no blockage! His tests showed he had a bladder infection, but besides his urine is a lot better than previous--hardly any crystals now either (and what he has she thinks might be triggered by this infection)! But he does have inflammation, and as I know urinary tract infections are painful & awful. No wonder he has been dribbling or trying to pee everywhere :( They emptied his bladder, and are keeping him overnight for observation. They want to be sure he can empty it himself, and has control with it in general. I can probably pick him up tomorrow around 1:00PM, and he'll have a course of antibiotics & painkillers, but hopefully can go off the steroids since this isn't caused by things spasming (and from experience they are hella hard on someone's system). She also said he doesn't seem very happy, so I expect he is over there wailing pathetically :( (Nick for being a big cat has a high-pitched wail for a meow).

When I came back I was utterly exhausted. I didn't even bother eating lunch or supper, I just flopped in bed and fell asleep wnile watching "Doctor Who" ("Dalek") & mid-text-message with [livejournal.com profile] watchcry (I RARELY fall asleep with my RAZR open & in my hand) D: I haven't worked any on Snake, and I know I probably won't get it up tonight (that sentence was typed that way and I snorted so it stays). I'll try to once I finish eating though (soup & brown bread)!

EDIT---
Well the day I thought was the 27TH is actually today (That birthday Scheduled Tweet), so here is the return of a ridiculous level of anxiety, and me hiding offline.

EDIT--
I got a "Thank-you!" and no railing or Blocking. Also Nicki's meds are little pills & 4 premeasured syringes (oral ones). He has been following me around since I got back and actually purring (he rarely purrs) with his tail up in the air.
ladynoremon: (Minnow)
Firstly here is Lydia yawning (recorded with my RAZR):



---

As I mentioned before, I took my 3 brats out for little walks on Saturday.:

"Yesterday I took my 3 brats out for 10 minute walks. I had hoped for a repeat of last year's adorableness in the autumn leaves, but Minnow is the only one that briefly pounced on anything. I have 3 videos from it/them to upload to YouTube once they convert. I had a hard time getting them to even go out though D: Minnow got harnessed fine, but then ran up stairs and hid. Nicolas was freaked-out that he was going to the vets' again.--So I let him walk where he wanted instead of carrying him to the front lawn where the leaves are. Lydia thought that I wanted to play chase with her, and ran up-and-down the stairs and bounced all over the place not letting me catch her. However once all of them were outside, they were fine! Lydia is probably the vest to walk as she doesn't squirm if I have to pick her up."

3 videos of walking cats & me rambling... )

---



And yesterday (Monday) I took Minnow for a very small one, and Nicolas for an over an half hour one. I wasn't planning on, but my mom had just washed their sweaters, and I just put them on to see if they had shrunk any. Well Minnow ran right to the door & started meowing, so I had to take her out. But once outside she just sat on the stump of the old crab-apple tree & ate grass. It wasn't very cold out (though it looked like it would rain) so I was content to just sit or stand and let Nick do his own thing until it started getting dark.

The rest of the pictures & video can be found {HERE}

EDIT---
Here is a picture of a robin:

I love watching them hop all over our lawns, getting into scuffles, and looking at people like 'Whut?'. I know ours (Nova Scotia's) aren't robin-robins, but I think the North American robins have better eyeliner :P

---

I've also been doing that "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward" countdown thing I mentioned. I've just drawn Zero & Ace, but as long as I can keep calm and enjoying it, I should be fine. Today/Tomorrow is Snake, but I really am not looking forward to his intricate jacket. Why do you wear such a ridiculous to draw jacket, Snake?

I plan to make an entry with all 9 (maybe 10) drawings when I finish, but here:

Zero → { http://twitpic.com/b4ake6 }

Ace → { http://twitpic.com/b4ll62 }

My point is to get them done, so I'm just doing that cute style with flat colouring. I use Standard layers so the white cutout background isn't needed, but I think things 'pop' more/I like it. To colour Ace took me 1 hour, 40 minutes.
ladynoremon: (Doctor -walk alone-)
I tried to write an entry on Friday, but I couldn't finish it, so I tried yesterday and just gave up. Maybe it will get done, or I'll post what I got, but this will do. I've pretty much said all I was going to post elsewhere anyway (Plurk/Twitter/Facebook). I had a crappy week, and Thanksgiving made me feel like it doesn't matter if I'm alive or dead to most, and that feeling has yet to bugger off.

---

→Last Friday I went to visit Douchette for the first time in 2 months. We warched "Hudson Hawk" [Davis Caruso (Horatio) played a mute disguise artist named Kit-Kat], and played "You Don't Know Jack" & I played "Sorcery" (a PlayStation Move game with Erline the annoying/mean cow). I earned 13 PSN trophies (my PSN is 'Lady_Noremon' or whatever my LJ profile links to). We ate a Subway submarine sandwich, and almost a whole lasagna. I also injured my arm after using the Move controller so much and had to wear my arm brace for most of the following week.

→Thanksgiving was awful. )

→I got an appointment with my family doctor to get my MRI results, and to talk about my circulation (vein problems run in my family, and I've developed 2 spider veins on my leg, been having numbness, & not been able to keep warm.). I also called the physiotherapy department to make an appointment now that I've had my MRI. Well the one working the desk couldn't find my file. After a lot of searching she found it in the 'to discharge' folder, listed as the day I called in sick. So pretty much my new physiotherapist tried to discharge me :/ Which did not help my value level very much at all. I mentioned here before that she called me out-of-the-blue wanting to discharge me after only 1 appointment with her & booking another. I know that they have all of Pat's patients to deal with now, but for fuck sakes. I'm going to see what my results are & how Friday's session goes, but I think I'll request another reassignment (though the one I have is who Patrick thought would be best). I can't 'shop around' much though because I'm in a rural area, and my treatments need to be in a hospital for my provincial health insurance to cover it.

→Nicki had his recheck and it was excellent. So I got his innoculations & was very, very as ease. But right after those telephone calls (doctor/physio') Nicolas had an accident on the table. So I called the vets' and was told to come pick-up another round of those pills he was on since his physical examination was so great. Hopefully this will help :( But June really, really upset me when as I was getting back in the car after getting the ($7) pills, she said that I probably should have Nick put down as it has been expensive. He has a urinary tract problem, that now that it's been caught, that if he eats his food will have no impact on his quality of life, FFS.

→Yesterday I took my 3 brats out for 10 minute walks. I had hoped for a repeat of last year's adorableness in the autumn leaves, but Minnow is the only one that briefly pounced on anything. I have 3 videos from it/them to upload to YouTube once they convert. I had a hard time getting them to even go out though D: Minnow got harnessed fine, but then ran up stairs and hid. Nicolas was freaked-out that he was going to the vets' again.--So I let him walk where he wanted instead of carrying him to the front lawn where the leaves are. Lydia thought that I wanted to play chase with her, and ran up-and-down the stairs and bounced all over the place not letting me catch her. However once all of them were outside, they were fine! Lydia is probably the vest to walk as she doesn't squirm if I have to pick her up.

→I plan to do countdown pictures for "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward" like [livejournal.com profile] ahnjehleehn, only using "9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors" characters as I don't know the VLR cast very well [I'm hoping to like Dio & Sigma though, and Cloooooover (older than in 999 though, but she's Snake's little sister :} )]. I've been blah today so I've yet to scan or colour my little Zero doodle yet, or start Ace for tomorrow. I'm just doing doodles though in that little cute style because it already is daunting enough D: Zero's gasmask is frustrating to draw. I'm also saddened that the game comes out on the 24TH, and not the 20TH as I had thought :/

→I'm not looking forward to LiveJournal's new posting page. I like the drop-down lists, and the new page hates my crappy Internet & old computer :[ (I'm trying to edit some entries before, like I unlocked one last night).

→I'm getting less ignored on Twitter, but still enough that I feel like I'm tweeting to air or myself. I'm also still too scared to check the main stream usually, because I don't want to know who's not there anymore. I know the Blocks were from people I cared about, but I don't know all of who, and I don't want to either which is why I haven't used Friend Or Follow's service in over a year. Withdrawing off online wasn't the right thing to do, being sociable isn't the right thing to do, so I just don't know anymore.

→I feel like a pariah.

→I have some timed tweets I set-up back in March when I still had hope, and wasn't as scared. But now I'm scared that by letting even "I hope you have a fantastic day" to someone on their birthday will lead to Blocking. But there is nothing I can do, as I reinstalled TweetDeck, but it won't let me log-in. I even tried the web & Google Chrome versions, but I cannot log-in there either. It isn't my password, because entering something else gives a wrong or bad password error. I'm not planning on using TweetDeck anymore anyway, but it just means that any Scheduled Tweets are going to tweet. I'm worried most about the one for the 28TH, and sm thinking about deactivating my account for that day, but I don't know if that would even work--I'm also scared that it might be seen as a reason to go about deleting things (if they haven't already been as I'm too terrified to check now. I posted "Watching The Detectives" with the mobile site even).

→"The Mentalist" is on tonight, and I worry about Jane even more after last week's episode. But Jane & the rabbit was adorable, and had an Alice feel (and I liked that it was a brown rabbit instead of a white)!
ladynoremon: (Kio -serious-)


"I'm going in for the kill. I'm [not] doing it for a thrill. Oh, I'm hoping you'll understand, and not let go of my hand."

-----

I haven't unlocked my last entry, and in general have been avoiding online. Pretty much I feel like any words I type or say just dissipate or are twisted around. Nothing I fear, am hurt by, or have ever done matters. Nothing feels safe/alright. And I really don't think I can handle it any more. I'll try to stick about until VLR comes out though.

Anyway; last night I kept listening to La Roux, Duran Duran, Adele, & finally finished "Death In Blackpool". I put my summer/spring clothes in a garbage bag, and put my autumn/winter clothes in my drawers. I gathered-up bedding that I no longer wanted or needed and put it into bags. I hung all my belts & dress clothes back up. Today I worked ore on my getting all of the treasure chests in Dream Drop Distance, and have tried not to vomit. I've been nauseous consistently fir awhile now, but today just has been terrible. I'm hoping that it settles for tomorrow as I have a lot of errands, and long car rides before my MRI. I got a call from Valley Regional today saying to show-up half an hour before my original time, to go directly to the room number, and to pick up a telephone that would be on the wall to register.--It was very cryptic like in a spy movie. I'm still going to see the front desk though, but I do know where the MRI room is. I don't know when the results will be available, or when I'll even learn them as I've not been going to physiotherapy. I don't feel as wanted there since Patrick left, I know I'm an excess patient, and on top of that infection I had I've been busy with Nick & Ciderfest. I can definitely feel/tell I've not been going, and with all this rain we've been having here I've been in pain again. I also know that if this leads to needing surgery, or another visit to a specialist, I'll be requesting someone else besides the orthopedic surgeon I already saw as I don't need anymore feeling like crap right now. I also have been failing at doing most of my daily excercises :/ I got out of it when I was sick, and now am just urgh over it.

---

Nicki is doing well though, if he would only eat his new diet. I am trying him with a specially ordered bag of a brand the veterinary office doesn't keep in stock because he has refused to eat the C/D kind, and only picked at the S/O one. He also isn't too interested in the 2 brands of soft cat food I've tried, but Nick doesn't care much for soft food anyway (except the smelly/cheap Meow Mix kind in plastic containers). Nicolas has always been a picky eater though, and refuses to eat 'people food' except for occasionally tuna & oddly cake icing. He had Feline Rhinotracheitis when he was a kitten though, and has nasal passage damage from it, so I think he might not have the best sense of smell. I've just got to keep trying him with urinary diet though, since if he doesn't eat it he likely will form crystals again, and he has lost about a pound so far. I'm worried about him, and I'm pissed that cats are so difficult.

---

In other pet news my Sea Monkeys were doing lovely, I had about 12 adults & lots of little ones. But last week I added water to the tank and the corpse of one of my 3 pregnant females floated up. Since then I've found 2 more corpses, but now I just see 5 Sea Monkeys in there (and a few baby specks), but even after aerating & adding water I've seen no more corpses. I'm worried about them as well.

-----

And since my last entry is Private, I'll say that "The Mentalist" has started up again! I don't know how I feel about the new air day (It's been Thursdays since I started watching last year), but the premier was really good. My Sunday was pizza, perry, & Patrick Jane...though I didn't manage to sleep very well when I finally did go to beds. I've since watched all the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I had on my DVD player flashdrive, so I need to copy the rest of Season 4 onto it. I never saw Season 4 before, and my favourite character left in an episode that made me feel heartbroken & sick...and I never saw it coming until said episode. I'll definitely have to copy more off to get me through Thanksgiving. I'm not welcome at dinner again this year, though I wasn't expecting to be after how my birthday went. I'm going to try to buy a package of thighs & breasts (less sexy than it sounds), cranberry jelly, StoveTop Dressing, and maybe some sweet potatoes though, as last year was spent here alone & sobbing into a VH Steamer.
ladynoremon: (Nicki)
P1270078.JPG

Nick had been cleaning himself a lot the past week, and I just figured it might be worms, so decided to just watch for any sight of them. But on Monday evening Nicki was in the litterbox a very long time, and I was worried so I picked him up and when I did he let out a little cry. Now he is not a very vocal cat outside of trilling (and wailing pitifully when he wants out in to the porch)-Hell, he rarely purrs-so I got more worried. That night he was dopey and his ears, nose, & paws were hot. I was planning to go visit Douchette on Tuesday but instead called the vets' and made an appointment. I didn't know if anything was going to be wrong so I booked his needles too just in the case that there wasn't. Well at about an hour before said appointment he started squatting on the floor like he was trying to pee, and when I picked him up he growled so I started worrying about FLUTD (Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease). We got to the vets' and he embarrassingly pooped on their furniture, and the diagnosis was a partially blocked bladder. She took him right away for sedation & to be unblocked, and I had to sign a form & leave him there overnight for observation after the procedure. I felt so bad for him & missed him terribly. Like he often curls-up beside me when I'm watching television, and I play with his little paws--I had no-one to cuddle or hold my hand. The doctor called me before they closed to tell me that unblocking went so well they didn't even need to use a catheter, and that he was awake, bright, and doing excellent. I still didn't sleep very well that night though.

I called the office a half hour after they opened on Wednesday and he had ate & urinated on his own so I went and brought him back with instructions & medication (I might scan his discharge papers). He was dopey & utterly disgusted; just flopping in the middle of the floor and staring off into space. He did eventually get up to stuff his face with his new special food, then went back to sleep on the chesterfield this time (in about the same position as the above picture). So I decided to have a fried egg sandwich, a mug of tea, & crawl back to bed (I had a splitting headache, and was bothered over the bill). About the time I got up, he got up too, and I planned to give him his pill & try him with the canned urinary food (it's cheaper & they said it would work better/dissolve the remaining crystals faster)! ...But he started crouching again and seemed very distressed. So I called the vets' but the doctor was busy and would call me back. Before said callback he had dribbled and growled when I went to pick him up (Nick rarely growls). They said to bring him back, so I harnessed him & we headed out. As June was opening the door he let go all down my leg & my foot D: And he peed again all over the waiting room floor when we arrived. So since he clearly had no control they decided to keep him overnight again (which usually is less expensive than a recheck examination). I was so worried last night. My mind kept going to "What if it is something else?!" like what if it's bladder cancer? Or his kidneys? I was so, so worked-up and crying. My cats are one of the very few things I have in life, and though I'm not much, I'm also all they have. They are probably the closest thing I'll ever have to children. So the thought of something being seriously wrong, & maybe even losing my boy terrified me. And I had no-one to even ramble to to get myself calmed-down either. Like the only one of the people that would talk to me & might be online has his own problems, and I hate logging into IMs (ebuddy) anyway because of all the 'Invited To Chat' or just showing as their e-mail address people making me so upset (and to add to that my Twitter Following went down by 2 more. Because me already being upset, & with people knowing something hurts me, means more reason to make me feel worst). So I eventually just had a bath then watched some "Buffy The Vampire Slayer".

I didn't call the vets' first thing this morning, waiting for them to when ready. 10:44AM she called and told me that he did well and they found no more blockage. He ate a lot more than the night before, urinated easier, and was spunky. So now he is back! He really is a lot perkier (going around rubbing against stuff, wanting to be petted, trying to escape)! The vet says he might have more accidents due to not having full control yet, and is still very tender, but that he should be fine once the pills kick-in more. We've given him, mostly free roam for now, but if he has another spasm accident, he'll get confined up in June's bedroom. He just ate & is now dozing with his orange mouse after I wouldn't let him into the back porch to play in the wood pit.

What are recommended commercial fiber dry cat foods sold in Canada?

First off, HERE is a video of Nicki & Lydie washing each other ---> { http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmWZebZotgA }

Well yesterday [July 14TH, 2012] my mother & I went to Dalhousie Days out/up in West Dalhousie. West Dalhousie is located on the South Mountain, and is very, very rural. Quite a ways into it is also where [livejournal.com profile] krogoth5 used to live, and is a place I've been to so, so many times :/ I haven't been since...2005? but I wanted to go to Dalhousie Days this year to see the reptile show that they were hosting. And besides from gas & a hella long drive the price is free (excluding $5 for optional breakfast). It isn't the event that it used to be, but the now organisers seem to be trying to get it more attention and things for a 'hip-er' crowd (holding a video dance & variety show). I got breakfast which was 2 pancakes, 3 sausages, & some-sort of murky juice (the jug said 'orange', but it tasted kinda like peach, so I figure they mixed them). The pancakes were burnt on the outside, but had a nice fluffy texture. But I only managed to eat one (my mother had the other) & the sausages as I wasn't feeling very well [I did not sleep well the night before--between the heat & a dream about Hal-Con 2011 (I fell asleep to eTalk covering Comic-Con) that put me in a very grumpy mood (I spent a lot of money, trust, & belief for it, and felt unwanted, in the way, & ditched for most of it)]. But after I ate we went around and looked at the tables of things some people were selling, and also bought 4 envelopes of tickets for the Chinese suction. My mom bought me a faux wood peacock ring, and later that day also a pineapple one too ($3 each). There wasn't much I was interested in for the auction, but I did fail to win passes for Oaklawn Farm & Upper Clements Park though. I also StreetPassed with 2 kids that were also attending, and even got to StreetPass with FreakyForms (It seems no-one I StreetPass with has that game, or has nothing set-up to send out with it)! So now Saunder, Lorrie, & Pïäté are Visitors on Planet Ethan C. :}

And then after lunch, Bingo, & the children's games had temporarily been put-away, Maritime Reptile Adventures set-up. They brought 7 reptiles to show [they planned to bring an 8TH (some sort of red snake), but he was filled-up with fluid getting ready to shed his skin, so they didn't think the loooong trip would be very fun for him]; 3 lizards, 3 snakes, & a tortoise~

Bandit: a male Taiwanese beauty
Peaches: a female German giant bearded dragon
Illusion: a male speckled king snake
Stitch: a male water monitor
Tortilla: a female red-footed tortoise
Jigsaw: a male ball python
Bear: a male black & white tegu

I really enjoyed it, and it seemed like at least Mike (a zookeeper) loved what he was doing. I also really loved Peaches and got to hold her on my lap twice. I fond it adorable that she was named such a cute name, and that her favourite food is strawberries. I also learned that they think she is about 6 years-old, but aren't certain as she was found abandoned & wandering around Halifax. I also loved Tortilla, and she took off and trottled around the floor when she was put on it (even running over my foot XD ). I thought being named after a 'little cake' was so cute, and also learned that she goes...well bananas for bananas ("I like bananas. Bananas are good.") XD And Bear was also awesome! He was just like a big cuddly lug, and I kept being reminded of Nicolas (my middle brat) & Bear from ".Hack//Sign" XD


Peaches♥

The rest of the pictures I took can be found {HERE}

Also there is 3 short videos I took of the reptile show {HERE}

------------

I also recently played the "Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure" demo' and now I really want the game. The music is lovely, and the main character looks really cool. My favourite mini-game from the demo was 'Looting the Louvre', and my favourite pose is for C-Rank. I took a pretty poor quality video of me playing the demo, and the soundtrack can be found {HERE}. Sadly I've blown my video-game budget until the autumn (excluding pre-ordering "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward"), and I'm trying to save-up some for the Annapolis Valley Exhibition next month.

But last night I bought "Mighty Switch Force!" as it was $5 off until 9:00PM PST today, which means I only paid $3.15CAD for it--though I used my Nintendo eShop balance. It's about a cybernetic cop named Patricia tracking-down escaped prisoners/Space Hooligans. It's all done in Megaman-type sprites (which are 3-D layered if one chooses to use the 3DS' slider), and is really not a very serious game. I'm currently stuck at the end of 'Incident .12' because there is a tricky jump & switch that I can't seem to time right, and just end-up- squishing myself, or landing on spikes. Here is a 'realistic' art of Officer Wagon. And since that page links to the OST on BandCamp {and is no longer really Free :/ [virt (yes THAT virt) & WayForward originally posted it to be free]}, here can hopefully be found a .ZIP of it on MediaFire.

Lastly; I am on the room after the Library in "9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors" (is it officially now "Zero Escape: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors"/"Zero Escape: 999"?). I haven't been playing much, but I have completed the steering wheel puzzle, and the number balls computer puzzle (and I thought how each ball was a different colour was really cool) now. I love Seven & Snake's banter, especially when Seven calls Snake 'kid' XD Like when Seven said something like 'Hurry-up, or we'll be here 'till the cows come home', and Snake replied 'Well then at least we wouldn't have to bring them back ourselves'. Also when Snake corrected Jupei's "Like they say, practice makes prefects!" with "Don't you mean '-Practice makes perfect-'?" and Junpei told him to do the puzzle himself then. ...The puzzle was on a computer screen and involved sorting coloured numbered balls. So yeah; make the blind guy do a quite sight-required puzzle while everyone is in a hurry because the ship is sinking. Well it might work slowly with a screen reader describing things--and Snake probably could find a way to do it anyway. Snake~♥ XD

I've also been rewatching "Gallery Fake" (one of my favourite animes)~ I want a Rhythm Thief & "Gallery Fake" crossover now though! And I've beeing trying to rewatch/finish original "The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi" anime which I started back when I had my wisdom teeth out ^^; (so 2006 or 2007) BURNT VCDS XD

EDIT---

Well MediaFire keeps losing connection while uploading, so I'm going to leave it and hope that it uploads overnight :/

EDIT---
It uploaded! So a .ZIP of the "Mighty Switch Force!" OST is now in my Music MediaFire folder --- > http://www.mediafire.com/?brt7llecvb5ee
