It's pronounced "teh-a-tim-eh"

So... Sunday was almost a waste.

And part of Monday (where I came home early from school).

I got vertigo (not the line of comics, sadly) for the first time in ten years. It involved the whole apartment acting like one of those rides I used to pay to go on, nausea, and internet cures.

My estimated guesses on what caused it:
~dehydration
~pregnant??
~inner ear infection

Boyfriend had some rather frightening guesses:
~brain tumor (yes, he was serious)
~diabetes
~cancer
~stroke

I stayed in bed on the couch all day long, occasionally stumbling to the fridge for water or to the toilet to give back that water. I drank lots of water, and eventually decided to take a sinus capsule, which helped a little bit. I thought about playing Silent Hill: Origins (which Boyfriend gave me for my birthday), but thought such wobbly camera angles would only add torment to injury (or however the saying goes).

So I watched Terry Pratchett's Hogfather which quickly became my new favourite holiday movie ever! Naturally, I fell head over heels for the villain (see icon) and absolutely ADORE the lead character's (Susan's) hair. I highly recommend it. I tried to convince Kelly to rent it for one of our movie nights, but she was far too uninterested. But now it's mine, all mine!


Oh, and to follow up, apparently when I got vertigo as a kid, mum used to drug me with Benadryl to make me better (and I do mean 'drugged' me. I refused to take it because I thought she thought I had allergies or something, and I don't believe in allergies, so she slipped it into my food or orange juice).

Yes! I really want to go to Ithaca because I've never seen the Cruxshadows live. But I also don't know about gas. I want to see them in Rochester, too... but remember what happened last time they were scheduled to come to Rochester! Ithaca might be the only chance to see them on this round.

That's if I can convince Boyfriend to even go to Ithaca. It's looking like it'll be just Penny Arcade this time.
Yeah, he liked the last show, so he wants to go again, but if he can't make it, can I have a ride? Also, should I write "Cleo eats it" on my arm again? It's been so long since we've hung out, I'm afraid you wouldn't recognize me ;)
I'll have to drag you out to my next Vincent Price marathon or something.

Damn! Andy says he's putting Ross+1 on the guest list for Penny, but that still doesn't convince Charles to go to Ithaca, too >:(

I emailed Andy to see how much Penny Arcade costs, and he replied with Ross+1. He says remind him a couple days beforehand, too.
Cruxshadows will be at Water Street in a couple weeks, but not with Bella :(
Bah, well.... we will have a fun time anyway :)

Well, I just got some cash, so I'll buy my way in, and ride in with Charles... tempting on Ithaca now, though. I'll gas you up if you wanna take me there.

Well, then Penny Arcade it is! It's for the best... I just spent 200 bucks on Charles's x-mess present >_

If the internet tells you to cover yourself in curry powder, DON'T LISTEN!!!

Btw, I need your postal address. I'm completely confused as to where you live.

Common mistake in my address... I do not live on the planet Pluto. Ever since I found out Pluto has been lying to me about its planetary status, I've decided to move back in with Earth.

Money, presents, and things that don't smell like rotting vomit go to:

Fawn LaRoche (because they get a little sensitive when it's not this name nowadays, and then they don't deliver my mail)
392 Clay Rd. #22
Rochester, NY 14623
USA
Earth (take THAT, Pluto, you liar!)
