My Hide, She is CHAPPED

I'm so empty of patience lately. The damned zings, while not as bad as before (I can keep my eyes open and sit up and EVERYTHING!), are distracting and I do not know when they'll end. I'm also occasionally feeling sick to my stomach, which I think is related to the little spasms of zing-vertigo. Fnarg.

Oh no, sir. I must say you're wrong. I must disagree! Oh no, sir. I must say you're wrong.

Also, and this is minor, but it's really pissing me off. At our last Knit Night, a new person showed up. She said that did not feel welcomed by us because she had posted months ago to our group on Ravelry and no one responded to her. NOT ONE PERSON. I felt terrible. I mean, I didn't create our group, but I feel pretty responsible for it and I could not BELIEVE how crass I had been in ignoring a "hello" from a newcomer.

Well, today I remembered to go search out that post and you know what? At least three of us DID say "Hi, we're glad you're coming here, we're looking forward to meeting you." I was one of those people.

What? Does she not realize that Ravelry will not notify her of replies unless she goes to the forums? To be fair, I did not realize that myself for a while (I though the "reply" notification would show up from any page, and it does not), but she seems like a pretty bright person, so I don't know....I replied again today, and this time I put her name in my reply, which WILL show up in her inbox as an "ear burn." I added her as a friend as well. I'm just miffed that she made such a big deal out of us ignoring her when that is not what happened. Hopefully we will not have any other misunderstandings like that one.

Won't you listen to me? You told me, "I've seen it all before. I've been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams a-lying on the ground...."

I was home from work yesterday with the zings and nausea. It really bothers me that the prescriber of my Cymbalta refuses to sign anything for FMLA. She said it was their organization's policy, but I wonder now if she was making that up and it's really HER policy. Maybe I will write a letter to the administrator. I kind of hate the doctor anyway, so if I have to stop being seen by her, that would definitely not be the end of the world.

"I've seen the sky just begin to fall," he said, "All things pass into the night..."

I got an email this morning from The Pyramid Collection. You know, where I ordered some Steampunkish boots? Well, those boots still have not shipped yet, so that part of their operation is not as efficient as one would hope. But their marketing auto-emails are pretty timely. They one they sent this morning said "Hey, remember these awesome boots? They're still in stock and available for you to buy!!!!"

Oh, you had better believe I emailed them back. I forwarded that email to their "help" account, and this is what I said:


I received this email from you this morning. Interestingly enough, I DO remember these boots, because I ordered them from you on September 8th.

However, they have not yet shipped. Can you give me an estimate on when my order might be leaving your warehouse?

Thanks, and I'm really looking forward to getting the boots,


I had also originally put in a bit about fixing their logic to subtract the "recently ordered" from "recently viewed" items so that this sort of thing would not happen any more, but I took it out. It was over-the-top bitchy, and besides, the really shouldn't be sending these emails with ANYTHING recently viewed to people who just made an order. It makes me wonder if there is some kind of problem with my order. I guess the Help people can tell me that, since they're going to respond to my email within one business day.

Oh no sir. I must say you're wrong. I must disagree!

I do not want to be awake right now. I have been awake since 7:30 this morning, and this is my day to sleep in. I'm planning a trip to the Alpaca Festival later today and I want to be able to enjoy it (as much as possible with my face and hands going randomly numb for a split second here and there).

Oh no sir. I must say you're wrong. Won't you listen to me?

I'm about ready to tell you all what has been going on with me. Some of you have no doubt guessed. It's still ongoing, and I was really trying to wait until the whole thing was wrapped up, but I think I'm not going to be able to do that. What I do with stressful stuff is journal it here. Maybe it will help to get it written down soon.

I think I might try to go back to sleep now.

    I'm not sure this is right - wasn't one of the gears elliptical to correct for Earth's orbit?
