Dear f-list, I need your expertise.

Has anyone tried acupuncture wristbands against motion sickness? Do they help at all? I have really, really bad motion sickness. It doesn't matter if it's a boat, a plane, a bus, a train or a car, whatever moves makes me sick. It's been getting worse over the years up to the point that I'm getting sick when I drive to work in my own car (I've actually just made myself sick by googling this stuff. brb, headdesking).

Medication is the only thing that helps. It's not something I consider taking on a regular basis, though; it's for scary stuff like boats or long distance car travel through the mountains. In everyday situations, gritting my teeth is my usual course of action. While it makes me look like a big girl, I'd rather be a whiner and feel well. If it helped, a simple wristband would be just about the best thing ever.

I read a lot of success stories and mainly positive things, but I'm doubtful. It's cheap, without side effects, reusable and the effect is instant. That's not how life works.

Did anyone try this? Are there other secret remedies? I'd totally wear a silly pink hat and hop a minute on one foot before getting into the car if that helped.

Wednesday, July 28th, 9h15:

boss: Morning

me: Morning. I just ran over a bird.

boss: What?

me: I killed a bird. With my car. I'm so sorry about that. *sighs*

boss: I bet the bird is glad to hear that. Oh wait. It's not! It's DEAD.

me: *feels incredibly guilty* It wasn't on purpose! It flew directly under my tire; too fast for me to react.

boss: Oh well... I guess that makes it okay... I just hope the little birds will die fast.

me: *alarmed* What? What little birds?

boss: It's July. Birds are breeding right now. You killed a parent bird. The young ones are gonna die. They're going to sit in their nest, waiting for their mum, but she'll never come.

me: Oh. God. I'm going to hell. *collapses. headdesk*

boss: Did you at least go back and check if it was really dead, that it doesn't have to suffer anymore?

me: What? No! It was on the highway. There was no way to go back and check anything. *defensive*

boss: *looks at me in silence*

me: *eyes brimming with tears*

boss: *grins* Coffee?

I'm back, feeling brilliant and already unpacked. I'll check back in with a picture post in a couple of days. Missed you all. Did anything terribly interesting happen?

Also: Wulff??? Seriously??

Almost time to check out.

We'll leave tomorrow afternoon and return in a little more than three weeks.

I'll miss you all madly.

Take care and leave me a link to the big things and the little things that I'm going to miss.



Oh My...

Do you know how it is when there's something that you don't want to look at too closely because you know it's not healthy?

It's that thing that will suck you in if you fall into its gravitation field and might never give you back. It's that thing that has been floating around for years, and whenever it ambles towards you, you yelp and jump and duck and hide under the table because you know it's NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

And then, one day, when you're unsuspectingly surfing the internet in your lunch break, wanting nothing more than a distraction as you can't leave the office because the rain is falling in sheets, you stumble into its pit that is filled with doom and destruction, and you know it's too late. You were weak for only one second, and that single second was enough.

Your world will never be the same. There are some things that can't be shaken off. They cling to you. They clutch your legs with their viscous claws, leaving marks upon the very core of your being. They stick to you, and they suck you dry like a leech gorging on a succulent lamb fresh out of the womb.

In other words: I discovered Etsy.
seedee: (miss you)
I wish you all a great, relaxed and happy weekend whatever you're going to do and celebrate.

Apologies to all I've neglected in the last few weeks. It's been a bit of a rough ride here, but I'm hoping that things will calm down soon. I'll take the weekend off, leave my phone and computer at home and will spend Easter at my dad's. With my mum still in the clinic, he's not doing all that well, so I opted out of my vacation plans.

Nevertheless, it's four whole days of no work and chocolate eggs and sleeping long. I'll be around this evening (and hopefully finally getting the last sentences of my George/Lee WIP on paper), but from tomorrow morning until Monday evening, I won't be online or available per email.

Thank you so much for the lovely v-gifts, [ profile] thimble_kiss and [ profile] spn4ever. Those never fail to make me smile. ♥ ♥ ♥

Love and kisses to all of you. Have a great time.

Thank you for all the love and lovely comments on my last post. It helped. You're all wonderful. ♥ ♥ ♥

Short update: My mum's still in the clinic, and I hope she's improving. I couldn't talk to her yet but talked to one of the doctors. The rest is still bugging me, but it's stuff I can deal with. I hope this week will be better.

Meme 1:
I like reading about people on my f-list. Sometimes there are things I'd love to know but don't dare to ask because it is too private, none of my business, or maybe I should already know. If there's anything you'd like to ask me, go ahead, I'll try to answer every question.

Meme 2:
1. Leave me a comment if you want to do the meme.
2. I'll reply with 6 of your icons and then you post this up and describe them!

[ profile] thimble_kiss gave me those six icons to describe:

Dear Cold,

What. The. Fuck. There's something I'd like to talk to you about.

This morning I couldn't help noticing that we had -26°C (MINUS TWENTY SIX!!!) (-15°F in case you're American). So I was wondering if maybe you are piss drunk or drugged up to your eyeballs got confused. I'm not trying to be annoying here, just would like to politely point out that this is not Siberia.

Are you fucking telling me, that in a time where the glaciers are melting and the polar bears are dying because they don't have enough ice to walk on, you have nothing better to do than hang around here and try to make my life hell? I'm freezing my arse off.

I was hoping you could reconsider your decision to settle down here, I'm sure there are places where you're needed more.


No Love
