Up late with friends two nights in a row. DID I LEARN NOTHING LAST WEEKEND? Apparently not.



As soon as I pay my credit card bill this month, I'll be donating a bit of money to Mashrou Leila's fundraiser for their new album. This band is SO AMAZING, people. I wish I had the extra scratch lying around to qualify for the donation tier that gives the three-CD-and-a-tee-shirt reward. It occurs to me that if I would get off my ass and get my Etsy shop started, I might have the money for that. God, I just hate dealing with shit like that. I'm fine with making the product, mailing the product, etc., but I despise the process of putting the actual stuff online, describing it, filling in the shipping costs info, blah blah blah. WTF, self. Get to it, already. Jesus.

I am slowly ridding the refrigerator and cabinet of FODMAP stuff. Next week I'll be able to conform to Whole9's FODMAP shopping list without wasting food already on hand. I'll give that a month and see if it helps with the abdominal swelling issues.

Yesterday was my appointment with Dr. Khosh. Unfortunately, my thyroid results still weren't in, which was annoying but oh well. We talked about my improved energy levels now that I'm back on the Adrenal Cortex supplement and how the diuretic tincture he gave me might be helping with the swelling since I'm only suffering intense swelling episodes (defined as my stomach sticking out farther than my boobs) one or two days a week instead of every day. He also did an acupuncture treatment on me, and unless I see zero or negative results, I'll continue seeing him on a monthly basis for acupuncture since Kiva is gone. Once he had all the needles in me (and holy crap he put a lot of needles in--I didn't count, but probably close to twenty) he stuck two adhesive pads on my abdomen, right to either side of my navel, and hooked me up to a contraption that's basically a TENS unit and let that work its magic while the needles settled. That was kind of cool. And tickly. The needles he uses are teeny tiny things that I hardly felt at all. He even put a couple in the bottoms of my feet, and yeah, they were a little startling when they went in, but once they were in, it was no biggie. Those must be some crazy fine needles.

Last night we had three-quarters of The Latenight Callers over for drinks (hence the late but totally-worth-it evening) and were gifted with a copy of their new album. It's half new stuff and half re-recordings of some of the tracks from their previous two EPs. GOOD STUFF, FOLKS. Check them out, go see them live, buy their music.

Have you considered seeing if you have a friend in the area who would be able to help you out with setting up your Etsy shop? If I lived close and could come by and help with pics and such, that's totally something that I actually enjoy doing. Maybe you have another friend who is crazy in the same way I am.

I've got the pics, I've got the info, I've got EVERYTHING ready to go. I am simply failing to find the motivation to build the shop.

Hi. I'm a local friend with time. ;)
Maybe I could help... and then maybe I'd see you, <:)

Honestly, I don't know how anyone can "help" with this. It's just something I've gotta knuckle down and DO ALREADY.

Oh, I understand. I still haven't put your needle cases up either.
It's too bad that there isn't a magic motivation supplement we could take.

Do I need to come over there with a bottle of wine and a riding crop and make you set up the shop?

Well that image certainly isn't encouraging me to do it on my own, I'll tell you that much.

That song was fantastic.... *looking up album*

You are one of the people that keep an eye on for music. Most of what you posted is stuff I like.

Oh, yay! I'm glad to know that, thanks!

OT, but I finally got around to doing my nails with my fancy new OPI nail polish and it is the best manicure I've ever given myself. Thank you for justifying the cost to me.
