Other shit what I got done this past week OR "Why It's Good To Boost KJC's Meds"
Such a weird week. Popped awake every morning, then was exhausted by noon.
Monday I just gave up and went back to bed around 12:30pm, woke up again at 8pm. Not so good for the productivity.
Tuesday, I woke up early and got a few things done, then when I started to feel sleepy and unmotivated, I made plans with ceciliatan for lunch. HA HA! Strategies! Showered and walked into Porter Square to pick up a 'scrip and order a book, then had lunch with ctan. After that, I did some Circlet shipping and headed out. I tried to pay for my medium-sized PO Box at the UPS Store, but... there was great stupidity and I failed. Picked up some fancy new sort of Modge Podge type stuff for a project from the Paper Source and some crispy sesame sardines from Kotobukiya.
I dropped off my Mom's old sewing machine (which she gave me a few years back) at the little sewing shop in Davis Square to get it checked out. (This is a big deal because I've been thinking about doing this for years.) They'll call me in the next two weeks to pick it up - flat rate of $95 for a cleaning and tune-up.
AND, as a bonus, they offer hourly tutorials for $75. I think I'm gonna get me one and find out how to make a bobbin on this machine, how to thread it, and how to set the tension.
Then I went to Microcenter and desperately tried to find a USB F/F gender bender or a PS/2 M/M gender bender to try and make the new USB-based barcode scanner work with our ancient Windows98 PC at MYP. I ended up getting another Y cable (all PS/2) and a USB-to-PS2 converter. I was missing a cable (the only M/M PS/2 conversion ability I had), so I didn't swing by the Picnic afterward to try to get it all to work. I saved that for Wednesday, after the Doctor's appointment. (It didn't work.)
I did go to Trader Joe's though, and pick up some dinner-type items and snacks. Yay paper bags for recycling!
Wednesday, after the Doc's, I filled my car with gas, went over to MYP, failed to get the scanner working, then hung out with rmd and clauclauclaudia for dinner, conversation, and silly TV.
I managed to remember to register my car online (three months late) but failed to pay my Cambridge parking ticket from over the summer (couldn't find the damned ticket to input the information).
Thursday I worked a long, wretched day at the Picnic, came home, and collapsed.
Friday I slept until my parts stopped aching, then the BF & I made butternut squish gnocchi (after roasting a butternut squish left over from our farm share and mixing it with a cup+ of cheese & garlic mashy taters left over from T-Day). TASTEEEEEEE. My first time actively participating in cooking in a LONG time. Stupid depression. I LIKE cooking. While the BF finished the gnocchi, I absolutely stuffed FULL four smallish paper bags with mail (RECYCLING!) that had been piling up in corners and on shelves for a couple years. I'm almost done cleaning out the knot of CRAP that was my mail pile. FOUND the stupid fuckin' parkin' ticket. Haven't paid it yet, though, because I'm almost out of money. (The checks will come soon, but not soon enuf, dammit!)
Saturday, I was a model for istemi's photography class, had dinner with her and some FTP Alums (adjacent to the Richman Clan) at Mary Chung's, and a scoop of kulfi ice cream from Tosci's. Got a lift home and sort of collapsed on the couch. Watched some TV. Cleared a little room on my DVR for a Sunday night recording of a new show, Leverage.
Tomorrow (well, later today), I'll work at the Picnic most of the afternoon and evening.
Despite getting a LOT of things done, I've been in kind of a bad mood all week. Not sure why. Might be fear for illin' chums. Might just be medication changes. Dunno.
