's fanart here
because, oh god oh god. *___*
And now, some non-fannish stuff.
I spent last Wednesday AM wondering why my back and hips felt misaligned and walked with my top half bent 20 degrees from the vertical. By the evening I finally realised that I damaged my back *again* and it wasn't my hips and thighs that have been hurt, it was sciatica. I therefore decided that 1) I was going to sleep downstairs (old sofa thrown away, have been using Liz's mattress as temporary sofa) because I couldn't bear the thought of going upstairs for bed and 2) I wasn't going to work on Thursday. Both of which were good decisions.
So, on Thursday I became friends with diclofenac and Final Fantasy 7. Movement, especially getting up after lying down/sitting down for a while resulted in OW OW OW OWWWWWW, stuff like that.
On Friday storme
ditched work to look after my broken self. ;; I mostly just lay there on the mattress in front of the TV and made pathetic noises.
On Saturday I felt okay enough to go out for some fresh air and sunshine. We went to the noodle bar near the top of North Hill, which turned out to have 1) tasty tasty kon chow beef ho fan :D and 2) wheat/gluten free options. Wish we knew that earlier! Did some shopping. Had amazing ice-cream. Made pasta and apple strudel at night. Collapsed again due to broken tiredness.
On Sunday my "new" sofa arrived. It's a perfectly good sofabed from my sister, who's recently moved house and wanted a different sofa. So we set that up, cleared up some stuff, moved around bits of furniture (well, I directed. Storme did the moving. ♥). Now the house is looking much better, except for my Faize cosplay stuff which is still everywhere. Made soup. Baked chocolate cake.
We discovered that we never actually played TLR together! But still we didn't get around to playing it. Again. orz I made loads of progress on the Faize cosplay and also fixed the Zidane one, though, thanks to having been stuck home.
We also watched some Yakitate! Japan and Bill Bailey, though I don't even remember which nights those were.
At the moment I still can't be standing up for very long without needing to sit down. Sigh. Still drugged with diclofenac.
Tomorrow I'm taking the day off to get my dental crown fixed in the morning, then to go to the FFXIII launch event at HMV Oxford Street in the afternoon. To be honest I'm more excited about there being a new JRPG to play than there being a new FF to play, if you know what I mean. I'm also looking forward to Resonance of Fate/End of Eternity, despite it being produced by Tri-Ace (Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean: TLH. Urghhhh.) I don't care, I just want JRPG.
At work right now. Checking financial stuff and sending out invoices. Can I please have some engineering to do?
