I received my first IV iron infusion on Friday & I think it's making a difference. On Saturday morning, I was watching Leigh mow the lawn & I started in on that depressive thinking cycle - Leigh does all the work...& I contribute nothing ...then unlike usual, I actually was able to get up and start to tidy up, I baked a batch of cookies, made some roasted sesame seeds for snacking- I know that doesn't sound like a big heap of productivity, but I've been rather sluglike for so long. I think my anemia was making me really depressed. I felt so good that instead of just nurturing that nagging feeling I was able to do some work.

We went to Ikea to look for some DVD/CD storage units. We could find things that were almost like what we needed, but not quite. Anyone know of a good source for dvd/cd storage units?

The best part of Saturday was when Leigh suggested that we go & take Sally for a walk - at first, I didn't have enough strength to hang on to her...but after a while, Leigh handed over the leash & after a series of gentle but firm tugs on the leash she started to walk next to me. She was so excited about going for a walk it was awesome.
Leigh then took King for a walk while I stayed at home. Kaz is a very strange husky - he didn't really have any interest in going for a walk. I think he would be more interested if one of the other dogs was going for a walk too.. so Kaz just hung out at home with me.

I've been watching Jon&Kate + 8 series opener and my heart is aching.
Their kids are seriously adorable & I hope they manage to work things out -





the lovely itsumademo mentioned that "tickets to the Seattle and Portland VAMPS shows are selling slowly and not well at all" - I hope ticket sales pick up

- Hyde's faith tour was a sellout in minutes, and it makes me sad to think their return visit will be underwhelming

I think it's because it's not just him, and partly because in 2006 we didn't know if this was a once in a lifetime chance, just like how a lot of us felt when we saw Laruku in Baltimore two years prior.

On top of that is the fact that it's not ALL concentrated in one place, so people don't NEED to fly all willy nilly across the country, hundreds of us, to one place.

And then there is the current economy.

It's a lot of different things working against and for the band.

Probably because Vamps fandom is a bit less..... solid.

And the economy. :|


Good to hear you're up and about :)

Gahhh, it's disappointing to see that those two shows specifically are suffering, as I was noticing the other day that they're both happening the week I'm on vacation and I'm so tempted to just throw everything to the wind and go. But it's just so not even possible :/ I really do hope they've considered the current state of our economy, though - I think that's the biggest thing dragging down the numbers, unfortunately *sigh*

And I'm glad to hear of the productivity! I think those things are a very big deal :)

... that gif... is actually saying "Haido-san, please have pity on our wallets" XDDD

I do hope the VAMPS ticket sale will go up, it's hard to imagine it isn't doing well. How big are the venues anyway? I did some research, some venues can only take a few hundred people based on their websites, but I could be wrong.

The ''big'' venue is the Seattl venue -- It can seat nearly 1200 people.
