Sunday so far

I was keyed up when we got home from Longwood Gardens (around midnight, after the traffic jam exiting the Gardens' parking lot), then got really sleepy after I took another painkiller.  I fought off the sleepiness so I could catch up with e-mail and assorted other online things.  Of course, then I was wide awake at 3:00 a.m.  I finally put on my iPod and fell asleep listening to that.

Mom brought down breakfast before she went to church.  I picked out my morning meds from the collection, and put them in a medicine cup, then fell back to sleep.  I woke up a couple hours later and went to go take my bath.  Mom had laid out my clothes and put washcloths and my cinnamon soap on the vanity, so I had everything I needed.  I finished my bath just as they got home.  Mom felt better knowing that I could do my own bath.  I didn't wash my hair, but I could probably get up to the kitchen sink and do that myself if I got very ambitious.

G.C. came over, and we worked on the garden club handbook for a couple of hours straight.  Again bribing me with food and drink, she'd brought an iced cappuchino from Wawa (Wawa is a convenience store chain in the tri-state area).  She left to go to her nursing shift, and I got a quick 3:00 p.m. lunch, and then went back to work on the handbook for another two hours or so.  The cappuchino got me really wide awake, but also shaky and nervous.  I hadn't had caffeine in a long time. 

Jordan sent the first of the new batch of Petit Morts to work on.  It's a cool story, Kris.  Definitely something for you to look forward to. :)  I know, I'm such a tease.  I'm still intrigued by Chance.  I don't know any more than the general public does about him.

Jules Jones has been talking about a Star Trek tie-in novel that was originally published in a very slashy style.  ( and earlier posts)  She posted a couple of links, including someone analyzing the difference between the original and the revised (stripped of the slashy overtones) version:  I think it's hysterical.  From those few lines and paragraphs I read, it didn't strike me as a well-written book in any case, but the first version of the book was highly reminiscient of a number of slash stories I've read in various other fandoms.  Jules refers to tie-in novels for movies and TV shows, and stories based on another author's world, as "pro fic."  I think that's hysterical as well.  Apparently the idea is that it's extremely like fan fiction, but the authors get paid for it.

I was surprised that my arms and legs weren't more sore, after all my exercise yesterday.  My left knee has been kind of sore for the last couple of days if I move it certain ways.  I think it's just arthritis, but I'll mention it to the next medical doctor I see.

We're having a very late dinner, then I'll probably catch up on Alles Was Zahlt.  I missed another couple of full episodes from the previous week, but it was a busy week this past one.
