*blows the dust off*

Hi DW! I hear this is the place to be! Gotta clean the joint up!

So, how about that Avengers trailer? I maybe teared up at work. I am lucky I have the kind of job where I can a) watch trailers during the day, and b) cry about them. My coworkers felt bad for me, so they bought me sushi for lunch.

But I am ready for the movie RIGHT NOW.

*************

State of the Snack:

1) Work: going well, see above. Crazy time of year though, and I’m looking forward to the semester break. Looks like a promotion in my future, so that’s something to look forward to.
2) Health: eh. Cancer recurrence, seeing the doctor in January, probably going to have surgery in February. I feel... okay? I’m constantly tired, often weirdly hungry, I am having some side effects from swallowing radiation (salivary gland infections, dental issues) and I no longer sleep well. It could be much worse, I know! But honestly, thyroid cancer is kind of a pain in the ass.
3) Fandom: fun but omg the drama in my corner of the ASOIAF/GoT fandom is just Too Much for a Fandom Old.

************

Now remind me to post something every day, and then I can officially call DW home again.

*waves* Hello there, so nice to see you again! :-)

Am a bit ambivalent and somewhat excited about that trailer but it does look very interesting.

And sucks about the cancer, but fingers crossed that things will turn out well for you in the new year.

Nice to see you on DW!

Good luck with the next round of treatment! I also got the dental and salivary gland issues which nobody told me about, and it was a nasty surprise when I suddenly got parotiditis at work one day (the parotid gland clogs up and then the face swells up rapidly and it's all very exciting because it looks like a massive allergic reaction but it isn't!)

Oh fandom drama!

I'm sort of tempted to look back in on Overwatch now that Lucio is apparently a furry or something.

I’m okay; I have a bothersome tendinitis in my BUTT that creates a lot of hip and back pain at the mo, and I’m in the middle of a big big renovation project that’s going to ruin xmas but also after I’ll have a nice, properly insulated house, wooden floors and a new bedroom, so, whatever. I’m fine. <333

Thanks for adding me back and good to see you here.

I've been busy on what passes for JournalFen since April, when I started posting obituaries to deathwatch. I decided to do that until someone told me to stop. So far, no one has as I don't think anyone is reading. I hope that's not running up the hosting bill and hurting you in the pocketbook.

I can't remember what a thyroid does. Is that the iodine one or the one people drill skull holes to get it to see God?

It's the one that can make you big and small and energy and crap. I have to take pills for mine and my hair started falling out but THEN I suddenly had energy again and my hair grew back the end.

Oh, my! I wish you luck with the thyroid cancer; I hope you feel better soon and that noting gets any worse before your surgery. But it's so nice to see you here and catch up, and yay, promotion! That's excellent. I'll be sending good thoughts for your health and sleep!
