Bought my first round of meds for my diabetes. I have a $50 deductible that gets paid at the start of the year so that kinda threw me for a loop when I saw the total. $107 and change. Luckily it's all claimable on taxes and all but jesus.

Speaking of the diabetes, it seems to be going okay. I'm trying to watch what I eat and I don't know if it's a placebo effect or if it really IS the meds but I find I DON'T want junky food as much. The doc said that the meds will help curb the desire, which is awesome. I'm still not eating as I SHOULD but I AM eating somewhat better. Yesterday my system had a bad reaction to a sub from Quiznos, though, so either it's the meds or my body has just had it with a lot of bread and such. It definitely wasn't something off with the sub since it passed through my system quickly so it wasn't food poisoning.

I'm having some trouble feeling satisfied without as much sugar. I'm a huge sugar fan (hi, it's why I'm in this mess, partially) so I have to find some things that are as good as sugar but aren't. Fruit is okay and I know some people are all- YAY, FRUIT! I don't need sugar! But I'm SO not. I like to put sugar ON my fruit. It's going to take some adjusting, for sure. But I don't WANT to be on the WHEE SUGAR! bandwagon. I so DON'T want to like it this much.

Overslept this morning, AGAIN. I don't know what to do to NOT sleep through my fucking alarms. It's not even a matter of putting one across the room, I have slept through ALL of them that I have set up. I have about 6, just to be clear. An alarm clock, a sleep tracker alarm on my phone and four more staggered phone alarms. The phone is right by my head so the sleep app can track my movements so it's right by my ear. Sometimes I DO wake up and turn them off, or accidentally fall back asleep after being awake but other times I simply sleep through all of them. It's been so bad that while I was napping a few weeks ago my alarm kept going off and my mom, who was also trying to nap upstairs, across the house, came down stairs and had to turn it off for me.

I don't know what's going to happen once we finally get winter here. We had a little bit of snow around the start of December and a few cold days but it's been CRAZY here for the past month or so. We've broken so many records because of the unseasonably warm temps. We had a couple chilly days this week but now it's going back up again. No snow, no frost on the windshields when we get up in the morning--I don't know what to think! Winter hasn't even started for us yet so it's fucking with my head and making me feel like it's more like spring. I'm in for a rude awakening once the weather finally catches up with the time of year it's SUPPOSED to be.

I think Mom and I are going to see "Joyful Noise" Saturday night. Cheesy as hell but I don't care. I like Queen Latifa and I like choir movies, surprisingly enough. And next week AD and I are going to see "Beauty and the Beast" in 3D!

It's like my computer knows I'm starting to search for something new to replace it. It's getting slllooooooowwwwww. It'll be a couple months before I do because I have to wait to have enough in my savings bonds first but I've already kind of picked out what I want. I'm actually going desktop-free, I think, for the first time. I have a laptop but I don't use it more because I HATE making graphics on it. I find the screen is too high contrast and makes everything more vibrant and hard-edged, if that makes sense.

So with the new laptop I'll keep my keyboard and monitor and just dock it so I can work off my monitor. I think that should work out nicely. Then I'll sell the desktop (which is still actually a good system for someone who doesn't use it as heavily as I do) and my laptop which is basically brand new, despite being 4 years old. I don't know how much I'll get out of them since computer systems don't resell as well as they once did but I would imagine I'll make a couple hundred. Hopefully, anyway.

In other news I've just drunk almost a litre of water and want to go right to bed. FFFFFUUUUUU.

Instead of doing holiday cards which I'd start out writing with good intentions, only to end up with them in a pile under my desk after 6 months, I'm doing an Advent Caldendar instead. Go check out the post and sign up for a day!

I want to get a start on them now so that I have a proper chance at completing them!

My chrome crashed randomly this evening. The freezing I've been struggling with for a while has lessened, although it's still very much an issue, but it RARELY crashes so that was weird. I wouldn't have given up Firefox if IT didn't freeze everyu three fucking seconds. Can't win the browser wars, I guess.

I had the caps for 107 of The Secret Circle done last Friday but I just... didn't post them. So here they are, for both episodes.

I was so tired Thursday night I fell asleep by accident around 9:30 and then went to bed-BED at 11, so I'm super glad I didn't wait for TVD or TSC which didn't show up until 3 & 4 oclock, it looks like. I also want to get the 2 Broke Girls caps up this weekend AND the Misfits caps from last weekend. Jeez!

I did manage to post some icons this week, though, for [livejournal.com profile] cw20in20. I claimed TSC generally (which I wasn't allowed to do, actually, but since the whole show was only 7 eps in they mod let me, yay!) and I was super happy with a lot of the turn out for those icons. I've been trying to push myself a bit with my icons this past month and it's worked out well for me.

05 x Nail art
17 x Threadless t-shirt icons
24 x models
20 x 2 Broke Girls
22 x The Secret Circle

The new Florence & the Machine album? AWESOME! Also, I LOVE her new video for "Shake it Out". It gave me chills the first time I saw it, which was also the first time I heard the song.

I have so much stuff I need to post. Those 2 Broke Girls caps I talked about a couple days ago, all my Revenge caps, apparently last week's TSC caps and icons! I want to try to get all that done tomorrow. We'll see.

I don't know why I didn't post the caps from last week. I have them done but I didn't upload them or anything. Perhaps because the release comes too late for this old timer to stay up for some nights. It's way past my bedtime right now as it is but I really wanted to watch this ep.

Glad I did!

We have the time shifting package on our satellite now so that means we get all the channels from across the country and all the American networks from the east cost and in between and EVERYTHING so it makes it easier to both watch and record stuff.

ANYWAY. That means we also get the local CTV channel from back home, where they have something called Greco pizza. Twice now in less than a half hour I've seen a commercial advertising their eggrolls stuffed with donair meat.

GAG!

Also, Pan Am is pretty fun, I was a littke disappointed that The Playboy Club was cancelled (and I'm the only one) but I'll be fine and I audibly "ugh'd" a couple days ago when I read on my twitter that Whitney got a full season pickup. Seriously? Anyway.

I already have so much stuff on my DVR that I haven't gotten around to watching yet. Revenge, Prime Suspect, Big Bang Theory, Community, Ringer, I haven't watched last week's The Soup yet... Jeez. I'm going to watch Community before bed tonight and hopefully the rest over the weekend.

New girl, S, continues to do well. She's so quite, not very outgoing but she's nice and she's learning. That's the best thing we can ask for at this point.

My mom is taking a course to get the paperwork that says she knows everything she already does from on the job training over 25 years and she's applying to get EI to pay for it (since she hasn't trained for anything in almost as long as she was at her last company back home). It seemed like she was approved yesterday but today she got a call from whoever is reviewing her app and was informed that they had called her last (only) employer since she moved out here and that person told them that she had quit the job due to medical reasons and said something about her inability to handwrite (my mom has terrible handwriting and I think she's embarrassed by it so she has to write slow to write even semi-legible, it's just who she is), etc. So this could potentially have her application rejected so she's pretty damn pissed. Because that's NOT why she quit the job. She quit because her boss was a fucking psychopath who demeaned her, gossiped about EVERYONE, was rude and expected miracles out of her staff. She has ONE person who has stayed with the company for 10 years. She's had about five personal assistants in the past 2 years and the last one only stayed two weeks.

We're hoping that the woman will understand from what my mom implied that this woman is crazy and there's a reason why mom left the job. How pathetic do you have to be in the adult phase in your life to be so deluded and vicious that you could ruin someone else's chance at excelling at life. I mean, it's one thing to not actively support someone for whatever reason, but to blatantly lie in a way that could take away the chance for someone to do something so basic in life... jesus.

I also have ANOTHER med to try to help me sleep at night. Woo.

Going to start posting some stuff to my new icon community, [livejournal.com profile] rockstar_pink this weekend including, hopefully, some The Secret Circle icons. Come check it out and watch if you like what you see!

Our paper is launching in FULL colour this weekend (we only had capacity to run half of our pages in colour on our old press but we've purchased a new one with upgraded tech) so it's a big day for us. We're going full-city and EVERY page it supposed to have colour. It's the first time we've ever done some ads in colour so we're excited and a bit apprehensive at once because if they look like shit (the press guys who are used to doing everything manually from the old press have had to re-train for a digital press) from weird colour balance and whatnot we're going to have to do a fuckload of makegoods and write-offs. So we'll see what happens!

I also found out about an opportunity that's coming up to make a little more cash AND get the chance to win an $800 iPad (!!!) through circulation. I'm SO DOING IT. I don't have to take on a route or anything and it means I get to use my sales skills, WOO! Should be starting in the next few weeks, I hope!

Oh, as much as I didn't want to cap two shows on Thursdays I might have to keep doing The Secret Circle. We'll see!
