Olly Olly Oxen Free ~ anybody still on lj? [Feb. 17th, 2011|06:20 am]
[Current Mood |lonelylonely]
[Current Music |morning joe on TV]

I had a tooth extracted yesterday & my Dad's painting came to mind
Silly me, I was feeling a bit sad over the fact that everyone seems to be jumping off lj for twitter & FB - then realized I had not been posting much here (except for shameless opportunities to become a spamulebrity)

* January - disability application approved
* March -officially retired
* June -2 weeks in the hospital w/an NG tube for partial bowel obstruction
* Aug - Sept 5 weeks in the hospital total bowel obstruction - surgery, NG tubes, blood clots & 2 trips to the intensive care unit

I've been feeling pretty good since my surgery in Sept. I've been able to gain some weight, but my Dr. wants me to gain some more. I've been diagnosed with rickets & osteoporosis. The foods that are high in vitamin D are all foods that I don't eat.. egg yolks, sardines,milk & liver >.< thank goodness for Vitamin D supplements

I am anxiously awaiting AT&T to come over & upgrade my slowpokey DSL connection & switch my TV from Comcast to AT&T Uverse. I will be able to watch TV JAPAN Finally!!!

your dad's paintings are so cool. I would love to know more about you and your life :) I'm not going anywhere, even though I would love to remove myself from teh WWW, I love LJ too much to worry about privacy.

I admit, fandom stuff is easier for me on twitter because it's easier for me to avoid much of the asshatery of TH fandom on LJ XD This is why my LJ has gotten much more personal as of late, but I am still here! <33333

wow, you have had an eventful year. I hope the Vit D supplements help. Liver and sardines sounds nasty anyway! Hey, I wanna watch TV Japan! Where are you? If you are anywhere near my area of the country maybe I can get that channel too. We used to have AZN tv here, and that had alot of Japanese tv. And before that we had International Channel which also had alot of J-tv. However, all that is gone now and I haven't watched Fuji-senkai news in forever! Or my asian soaps!

I'm still here and always will be. FB's just a different beast. Twitter's probably drive me nuts.

Glad to hear that things are starting to pick up for you :) Let's keep you out of that damn hospital!

I think the age of LiveJournal has definitely passed (nowadays people seem to prefer Blogger or WordPress for blogs, and yeah, Twitter or FB) but I still write in mine from time to time when I actually have something to say. I'm not nearly as dramatic and emo as I was when I was younger, so I don't write super angsty entries everyday anymore, hehe.

Lj does seem to have gotten quieter lately...

I'm glad you've been feeling better since your surgery, though it sucks about the rickets and osteoporosis :(

Yay for Tv Japan! :D
