Ridicu-pleased with the mister setup for Godiva's tank. It's been super hard to get the humidity right for her to have a good shed (ball pythons need mega moisture), but I saw someone's setup on youtube and we copied it.

Cool mist sonic humidifier + PVC thingies + tubing = voila! I have a spare piece of plexi on top to keep as much moisture in as possible, and we have it connected to a timer to run for 20 minutes two times a day. Her last shed was perfect! She seems a lot more perky as well.  :D

+3 snake care
+2 handiness

Sheesh.  I biff it on the ice last night less than a block from the house, in front of two cars, neither of whom slow down or holler "hey, you ok?" One of em came dang close to hitting me as it went by at 30mph.  :P

Some people.  #getoffmylawn  

Also: ow, my back kinda hurts today.
Alsø alsø: Hey St. Paul, maybe you should take care of your side streets so they're not big long hockey arenas? kthxbai.

Broke my toe. :/

Me: How long will it hurt to walk?
Nurse: Two weeks of excruciating pain, four weeks of regular pain, and six weeks of general soreness.
Me: MADDAFUQQAQQA.
Nurse: Yeah, basically. Hey, at least it's not sticking out at a 90-degree angle!
Me: .... Touché.

On the plus side, I didn't burn the mushrooms I was racing to save, and they are divine in my beef bourguignon.



Worth it.

It may in fact not be broken! It's a lovely dark mauve and painful as hell, but it hurts somewhat less this morning. I can actually move around without screeching, which is a good sign. ;) granted, this could just be my apparently genetic* freaky high pain tolerance and Wolverine-like healing factor..

*the doc is kind of flabbergasted at a) how fast Mom is healing from her surgery and b) the fact that she hasn't needed any of the über-powerful pain pills.

Stabby stabby head pains. I can still stare at lights, though, so I didn't think it was a migraine, but they said it doesn't specifically have to be photophobic(?) to qualify. They want J to eyeball me over the next few days to monitor dizziness, nausea, etc., and chuck me right back to the ER to get checked for an aneurysm, but so far, I'm just home in darkness with a fistful of meds.

Whee!  x_x  ow.

Merci, but I'm already feeling a 5 on the pain scale, down from Mauled By Bear.  :D

Work is on fire and we're outside with the fire trucks. BEST BIRTHDAY EVER.


eta: Boo, just smoke. Some [electrical thingamabob] did some [technobabble] in the basement, and we're all heading back up. Half the office is sans power, tho, cuz a whole ton of water is cascading over a bunch of wires in the electrical room. YAY SPRING.  -_-

I've been binge-watching makeup tutorials on YouTube... makes me glad I never wear makeup. o_O  Those sharp lil eyeliner pencils get WAY too close to my squishy sightorbs for comfort. I have vague memories of someone refusing to do my eye makeup for Zero after I flinched and cringed myself backwards off the chair.

But it is fascinating to see the effort that goes into looking effortless.
