Mom's home from her cruise. I missed her but mostly? I missed having someone to call when I had what could've been the beginings of an MRSA outbreak. This is a BFD for me and it was not fun to go through that sort of panic alone. Yeah, I saw my therapist an extra time over that crap. Also, I was dog sitting an adorable TERROR. Oh, and somewhere in all that I got a virus so bad that it took FOUR HOURS with tech support to resolve it - and required installing like 3 different kinds of virus removers/scanners. Not fun, I dont suggest it.

That said, everything is good now. I got a massive amount done tonight. I paid my credit card bill \o/ I booked my flight to ComicCon (it cost me $30 round trip. Thank you very much Delta. Pleasure doing business with you, I'll be sure to give up my seat more in future *bows*) \o/ I bought my ticket to the Honda Civic Tour (because damnit, I cannot see MCR too many times in one year. Also? BLINK 182!!!) \o/ RWrote some letters in regards to getting jobs! \o/

Now I'm trying to make myself chill and go to sleep and I am staring at my BBB and wondering why the hell I thought participating was a good idea. Of course then I look at my gorgeous art and mixes and am like "oh yeah" but still, to quote Dana Marschz "OH MY GOD! WRITING IS SO HARD!"

And now, for those of you playing along at home, quotes from class #2 of Astronomy.

So, today was all about doctors offices - which is lame and very boring. No really. Boring and lame. promise. Let's talk about something fun instead.

LETS TALK ABOUT MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE AS SUPERHEROES? SOUND GOOD? OKAY!

I have three totally worked out. Completely and totally.

Frank Iero - super speed and strength - Fucker's got crazy energy right? Tears shit UP. Well, he kinda reminds me of Michael Rosenbaum's version of the Flash off the early 2000s Justice League a little. So it works. Flashfoward Frank :D Or something more metal like White Lightening or whatever but still. Super speed. Also, strength because ya know, I love nothing more than a tiny hero who can kick your ass and make you like it :D

Bob Bryar - psychic visions - Okay, wait, hear me out. I know he's the fucking man and I know he's awesome and all but think about it for a second. Bob doesn't like to be out there, ya know, in it. He's a behind the scenes guy. That's who he is. He can put on a fucking hell of a show but that wasn't his direction of choice. So, psychic ala Doyle or Cordelia on Angel but with a little extra kick. He can force a vision if he needs to, has some control and focus that your average Cassandra or Tiresias lacks but still, he's the incoming message guy. Bob's visions of giant mutant alligators crawling into the subway and attacking commuters is totally vital to the guys getting the job done! He just doesn't need to be out their getting messy to make a difference. So while the rest of the guys are out their trying not to get themselves blown up, he's playing Wii and ordering pizza for when they inevitably return to his pre-war apartment(aka Headquarters) and track monster goo across the hardwood floors.

Ray Toro - empathy/telepathy and electrical manipulation - okay. So here's the rationale. Ray vibes to me as deeply empathetic already, like as a human being. He's just got that vibe to me, like he can, fuck, I dont know, feel deeply. I blame Disappear-verse for that. The Ray Toro over there is a seriously good guy and I'm kind of in love with him. Anyway [livejournal.com profile] 1001cranes is like "electricity! IT EXPLAINS THE CRAZY HAIR!" which, omg i love. But, I still really like the empathy/telepathy but like...what the fuck is thought and emotion but electrical impulses in the brain? So what if, like, it's the difference between using surgical scissors versus a sledge hammer? You go to the hyper-delicate side of electricity and it equals being able to read the electrical impulse of thought and emotion in a human brain. You go to the brute force side and you've got a walking talking Old Sparky who can fry you alive. Scary and cool, I think that Ray might actually have the most practical power all things considered.


:D

Fuck me running I'm gonna have fun with. But I've almost got Gee nailed down.

Gerard Way - darkness/shadow manipulation - *bounces* I'm a little too fucking excited about this. I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] 1001cranes and she pitched it to me as a direction to take Mikey but then she pointed me to Shade who very different and yet a lot like an old favorite of mine, Ebon from Static Shock all of which made me think of Gerard, hiding in his basement in the shadows. :D Oh, you better fucking believe it baby. Boy likes the dark. So I'm thinking...he doesn't just like it, he's part of it. Light and shade, he can manipulate it, make it solid, pull things from it and through it. *snickers* He's in essence a vampire, sticking to the night and the shadows. I just havent figured out if it's darkness itself, if it's shadows, if its a "dark" dimension with demons in it ala Shade or if its light and the absence thereof itself. It's seriously too poetic I can't not. I have to. I'm sorry. Please forgive me being trite but it's just so perfect it must be done! :D


The only one I can't figure out is Mikeyway. I'm leaning towards technopath(he isn't talking on his Sidekick, he's talking TOO it) but it's just not right. I cant figure out why but it's not. -_- Something though. There is something that's right for Mikey. I know it. I can feel it in my bones. I just haven't found it.

ETA: I FIGURED OUT MIKEY!

Mikey Way - transmutation and energy manipulation - If Mikey can see it, he can manipulate it's molecules. He can make anything into anything else and he can infuse it with energy he's pulled from around him, which he can feel pretty much all the time because now he's tapped into the universe. But he has to be in direct eye contact with something to effect change. Re: It doesnt work through his glasses or a window or a TV screen. The only thing that would change if he was looking at something through through glass would be the lenses or panes themselves. The view has to be uninterrupted. So his glasses? Are his secret fucking identity. :D WOOT!

Thats right kids. Its 5770 by the Hebrew calender! Yom Kippur's over. And it is the return of the ever popular abscess tag. For those of you not familiar. Click it! See what crazy medically resistant staph goodies lay inside! *sighs* Fucking fuck yall. Four years ago today(by the Hebrew Calender) I was on my way to the ER with my first EVER abscess, which now makes its memory felt in the form of a charming two centimeter in diameter scar on the side of my right breast.

And here we are, four years later, fucking right were we started - me with an abscess and trying to figure out the right course of medical action. How many of you were here then? Show of hands? *sighs* I am SO fucking tired of this. That shouldn't be one of my biggest tags damnit.

I'm going to have to drop a class. CLEARLY I can't deal with a measly 12 hour class load. I have to go back to 9. Fucking fucking FUCK. I'm ill but mostly I'm angry. I'm so angry. I'm angry at my body. I'm angry at myself for any thing I could've done differently(and before you placate me, there are almost certainly things I could've done). I'm angry that after four years of this noise, I'm still on the fucking ride. Thats life with a chronic illness for you I guess. Live with it, rather than defeat it. But to be honest, it scares me. It keeps me up until 6am because for some reason, I'm less scared that I'm going to get sick and DIE when the sun is up.

*waves a hand* anyway. That's my drama. Services were fine. I got to see my sister. We broke the fast with a lovely family.

I'm just so sick of this. I hate Tallahassee and I hate FSU and I hate all the bullshit I cant seem to escape whenever I come back here. [livejournal.com profile] ofangoriousone and [livejournal.com profile] mondegreen are pretty much the silver lining in my fucking storm cloud. I love you two so much, you dont even know. You know we've only been here at school and friends for a month? I feel like I've known both of you my whole life. *hugs*

Anyway. Rambley. That's me. Ramble-tron.

I picked the Superhero AU over at [livejournal.com profile] bandom_au to make up for that fact that the class I'm probably going to drop is my writing seminar. I know [livejournal.com profile] maryangel200 is gonna want me to go Gerard/Frank but I'm seriously feeling Gerard/Brian lately(sorry bb). Disappear-verse cracked 23,000 words and its my epic Gerard/Frank story. I dont know that I can juggle much more of that pairing until I get done with their story over there. It's just too complicated and when I write the two of them, its THAT version of them and that is not the version of them that would be called for in a supers AU. While Superpowered!Gerard/normal guy!Brian is like...strangely appealing to me. Ah the complications. To quote Mallrats "I guarantee he blows a load like a shotgun right through [her] back."

Yeah, I deal with my personal pain with fandom. Better than eating my pain or taking drugs right? Anyway, suggestions for who should have what power? And before you say it - Batman is not the direction I'm heading. Yes, he's awesome and he's a hero but he has no super power besides his billions and that doesnt count. I'm talking mutation, radioactive animal bite, alien in our yellow sun type shit.

Was actually well enough to venture out into the world today. I'm exhausted but I went - yay me!

I had lunch with my dad and saw 17 Again.

You guys? Zac is so cute and I want him to be super successful. He's got really good comedic timing and can actually act and just, oh I want him to do well and get to do grown-up movies where he says "fuck".

Part of why I'm so suddenly fucking upset about shit - I missed an hour worth of fucking treatment tonight. Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. Thats more than 160ml of VERY IMPORTANT FUCKING MEDICATION.

Christ. My bag is now covered in wet vancomiocin that should have been in my fucking veins so I could MAYBE stop being sick one day. Great. Awesome.

That several Russian-based LJ users have friended me. Hi guys! Welcome :D I have a favor to ask you?

Have you got a copy of the Russian-language version of T.A.T.U.'s first album 200km whatever? I had a copy back in 06 but when my iPod got stolen I lost it and all I can find is the English version. And while many things are good in English, those girls are better in their mother tongue.

So, help?

There'll be hugs and cookies and love for whoever helps the sicky out.

<3

In other news, I got my PICC line in. Hurts like a mother fucker. Seriously, I cant even deal how much it hurts right now.

Blech. I had another spot pop up last night which sucked big time and I went to my Infectious Disease doctor today. Bad news - yes its MRSA again and I'm back on the IV antibiotics. Good news - its only until Monday.

So....rec me a TV show. There's a lot of sitting around time involved in this illness. Preferably something thats not going to make me want to kill myself (like Angel or Battlestar). Something fun and time consuming.

The cold is still with me and a new MRSA spot popped up, this one on the back of my neck. I've notified my doctor but I'm on the strongest non-IV antibiotic out there so, no point in disrupting my day over this shit, right? Of course right.

But the cold is significantly worse and I'm just burnt out but its okay! If I can just make it through this fucking week. All I have to do is write up for my group project tomorrow and Wednesday and I'll be fine. I can do this. I can. I am just burnt the fuck out is all.

Any one want to write "my experience reading the text(Langston Hughes). Meaningful content and proper punctuation, grammar and spelling are important" paper for me? Its only 1 pages double spaced. Come on. you know your life aint been no crystal stair neither. ;-P

Nap first. Then paper.

As always, once the MRSA shows up - other illnesses appear. thats the problem with this fucking disease. The abscess itself isnt THAT bad. It sucks, it hurts, but if that were all there were to it, it wouldnt be so life-disrupting. But because my immune system is weakened, other bugs get in. So, the sniffles I had a week ago has turned into a full blown cold complete with headache, sore throat, technicolor snot and full body aches. It sucks but the drugs are good *snickers*

I've been ODing on documentaries while I was sick. There's a lot of interesting crap going on out there in the real world and when I'm stuck inside is when I like to remind myself of that so, here's what I've seen so far.

Documentaries I've watched in the past three days:
The Times of Harvey Milk
Southern Comfort (about the last year in the life of a really funny and fascinating FTM man named Robert)
Crazy Love (about a really crazy relationship between a woman and the man who blinded her with acid when she broke up with him who ended up married to each other)
White Light Black Rain (Hiroshima/Nagasaki)
Party Monster (about the Club Kids and Michael Alig.)
Jonestown: The Life and Death of the Peoples Temple
Family Fundamentals (Fundies with gay kids who keep on being fundies)
Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills


Documentaries I watched recently before this weekend:
For the Bible Tells Me So
Bi the Way
Aggressives (about the undergrond butch culture in New York)
Trouble the Water(about Hurricane Katrina)
Cat Dancers (the dance contemporaries of Sigfried and Roy)
Small Town Gay Bar
The AIDS Years
Jonestown: Paradise Lost(I seriously cannot get enough of that story - it FASCINATES me)
Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt
The Ramones: End of the Century
Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial
Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired

Documentaries I've DLed but havent watched yet:
The Decline of Western Civilization II - The Heavy Metal Years
The Divine Horsemen - The Living Gods of Haiti (about Voudoun - from the 50s. Its supposed to be exceptional despite being dated.)
Invisible Children (child soldiers in Uganda)
Darfur Now
Born into Brothels (children of prostitutes in Indian - it won the Academy Award in 2005 and I keep meaning to watch it. Shame on me)
Red Without Blue (a pair of twins - one is MTF one is not)
Snuff: A Documentary About Killing on Camera
Think XXX
Ask Not (about DADT)
Terror's Advocate (the defense attorney for some of the most evil degenerate fucks on planet earth)
My Flesh and Blood (the adoptive mother of several special needs kids)
Midnight Movies
Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden
Man on Wire
Girlhood


As far as the ones I've seen so far this weekend Southern Comfort was by far and away the best. I think its because out of everyone in all the docs, I felt the most connected to Robert and Lola. They were just...ugh. They gutted me and it was gorgeous.

The other one is the Jonestown stuff. Why is that shit so freaking compelling to me? I have heard the story over and over and over and it still blows my mind. Cults man. Cults. They bamboozle me. I cant read enough about them.

Seen any good docs lately?

As far as the ones I've seen so far this weekend Southern Comfort was by far and away the best. I think its because out of everyone in all the docs, I felt the most connected to Robert and Lola. They were just...ugh. They gutted me and it was gorgeous.

The other one is the Jonestown stuff. Why is that shit so freaking compelling to me? I have heard the story over and over and over and it still blows my mind. Cults man. Cults. They bamboozle me. I cant read enough about them.

Seen any good docs lately?
