jenepherre: (Phantom Planet - Alex Geronimo!)
I just posted my address for anyone who likes sending out holiday cards. The post is locked to a filtered list of friends. If you can't see the post and want to be able to, just leave me a comment on this post.

As for me, I'm still coping with this viral bronchitis or whatever it is. Definitely reminds me of when I was sick at the beginning of the year (the 6 week Demon!Supercold), only not as bad, luckily.

BTW, you *can* reply to my Twitter messages that get posted here. I will see your replies. Just FYI. I just find it easier to post through Twitter right now, so most of my posts come through there. I know not everyone likes Twitter, but I do. ::shrug::

I'm so bummed about Phantom Planet going on "indefinite hiatus." Sounds to me like they're breaking up. I bought 2 tickets to their final show on Dec. 12th in West Hollywood, but just found out that I can't stay at my aunt & uncle's place - they've got other people visiting that night. So... hotel, I guess.

Anyway... must send a couple of emails, then I'm off to bed. We'll have a houseful for Thanksgiving tomorrow - parents, me, sister & family and youngest brother and family. Seven adults and five kids (all 8 years or younger).

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends, and happy Thursday to my non-US friends. :-)

Passing this on from the Rrambles Yahoo Group (Thanks Heather!):

The poll question on the "Daily Buzz" asks how you feel about gay couples kissing on TV.

Right now "It bothers me" is ahead with 47%. Let's change that!

Here's the link (the poll is at the bottom of the page, on the right): http://www.dailybuzz.tv/

We're catching up! Right now it's at:
It bothers me: 39%
It doesn't bother me: 25%
There should be more of it on TV: 36%

Come on gang! Look at my icon (by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] paddies) - we do need more of that on TV!!!

Unrelated note: my Demon Super!Cold is hanging on, but just slightly. I'm probably 95% back to being my old, annoying self!

I slept lying down last night!! I haven't done that for 3+ weeks! It's so much easier to sleep when you're lying down. I still woke up a few times, but I didn't have any major coughing fits, so that was nice.

I am still coughing and congested and run down and everything, but being able to sleep more normally is a major breakthrough IMO. I do go back to the doctor tomorrow at noon to check on things, but overall I feel - I hope - I'm past the worst of it. Keep your fingers crossed for me. And don't any of you get sick either! I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

So... I just had a particularly violent coughing spell and... not too gross, but it seems considerate to put it behind a cut anyway... )
I so adore you guys for your healing vibes and kind words and I hope you'll forgive me for not replying to each of you personally. I do a crappy job of keeping up on your lives, and yet you're continually there for me. I hope you all know how much that means to me. ::hugs::

In my one bit of good news, [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia and I both managed to snag presale VIP tickets (which sold out in about 7 minutes) to the Panic at the Disco concert in San Francisco on April 10th. YAY!!!!!!! Not only do I get to see Panic perform, I also get to see Motion City Soundtrack and The Hush Sound (and another band I don't know) - both of whom I also love - who are opening for Panic. And just as important - I get to meet [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia! I ♡ her so much - even though because she got me addicted to Panic - and now we get to squee about them together and in person!! I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Panic may have dropped the ! from their name, but there are still plenty of reasons to use it in relation to them. hehe) Thank the deity-of-your-choice that it's not until April. Plenty of time for me to get over this damned demon supercold.

Did you know...

...that it's possible to hyperventilate just by taking slow, supposedly calming breaths? It is. And apparently I'm prone to doing just that. Long, deep slow breaths - which seem like they should be calming - are just as bad as frequent, rapid short breaths. Either way, you keep doing it and you'll be losing too much CO2 and your hands and feet and lips will get all numb and eventually you'll pass out. (Learned this the other night on the way to the ER from a really cute paramedic with a southern accent. Life isn't all bad.)

Posting right now mainly because [livejournal.com profile] big_brian_o said:
there is a super cold as they call it going around. It is said to be horrible.

To which I replied:
Really? That would pretty much describe it. Antibiotics do nothing for it since it's viral, not bacterial, but it's worse than any cold I can imagine. Because it's so bad, it keeps getting misdiagnosed - I started out with a diagnosis of bronchitis. Mom and Dad are both sick with the same thing, yes, though not nearly as bad.

They did run a crapload of tests on me when I was in the ER and were able to tell me that I'm doing everything I can possibly do to get better. It just has to run its course, which seems to be a much longer course than any cold they've dealt with in recent memory.

I have to admit this is one of those times when the benefits of being raised Mormon are somewhat worthwhile. The Relief Society (the church's women's organization) has been bringing us dinner every night, and there's always someone we can call if we need something picked up at the pharmacy or whatever.

I'm having occasional moments now where I feel a bit better, so I'm taking that as a good sign, but trying not to push it either. I have read every single one of your comments and e-cards and whatnot and appreciate every one of them. I've got some awesome friends, obviously.

And before I crawl back to bed, I simply must say...

Rest In Peace, Heath. You and your talent will be sorely missed.
