I had a good cry last night because I'm tired of having back pain and stomach pain and knee pain and now having head pain Because Google and also because when we went to a movie last night in an attempt to relax, I accidentally lacerated my toe in the parking lot because there was a steel cable poking quietly out of a broken parking bumper, and while the toe is now adequately bandaged and I'm up-to-date on my tetanus shot, it was a bit of a downer because ye gods it stings.
|These are not good for toes.|
So I had a good long cry until about 2 am, and am now in that 9 am fog that follows after nights like these, when the adrenaline has worn off and all you have left is an empty stomach and a vague craving for classic video games that comforted you as a child.
Gods, I cannot believe I still have to STARE AT THE KEYBOARD to compose this. No, no, I won't get hung up on it again. This post has a reason. And that reason is to first and foremost thank everyone for all the hugs and all the offers of help. I am overwhelmed with happy from this; thank you. I *will* answer all the emails in good course -- I need to send out about 20 emails, some of which will involve me having to fiddle with StyleBot first before I can say whether something worked or not. I'm deeply touched that so many of you are willing to help me get past this hurdle.
(I also intend to post a fixed post at some point for the 8 billion other people who are stuck with Blogger for whatever reason but hate the new interface. WE WILL FIX THIS MONSTROSITY.)
But! Unfortunately, I first must go run some errands before the shops close (particularly the post office, which is only open half-days on Saturday) and I must also find nourishment and possibly some rest. So if you don't hear from me until this evening, it's not that I'm ignoring everyone or that I've been eaten by the Google Hydra (each head represents a different Google service), it's just that I'm trying to figure out how to feed myself and three others this week prior to two major medical procedures (neither of them mine, though).
Thank you, thank you, thank you, all you wonderful people. Thank you.
