Today's color scheme is apparently green, as that is the color of the stuff that is finally coming out of me. AUGH.

The fever is gone and I am back to my normal temperature (which is slightly lower than average). It's back to work today, though I still feel a bit peaked and not 100%. I predict lots of running to the restroom to hack up horrible junk or to blow my nose.

I am still painfully behind on Radio stuff and house-moving work, but will be trying to squeeze that in around the day job. I have my long shift today though, so I can't get started on that until tomorrow.

The mild head cold I came home from the convention with is now full blown hell-sickness. Aches, chills, sweats, gallons of snot, plugged ears, and a hacking completely unproductive cough coupled with a tightness in my chest. I get winded walking the aisles at the shop.

I had to leave early from the shop yesterday both because of the hell-sickness and because the Radio online store was completely borked and required me to fix it. But once that was done, I went home and fell over, so no anime night for me, as is usual on Fridays. I'm falling behind on Eden of the East and Soul Eater.

I might have to call in today, since I am getting vertigo when I stand up and am freezing no matter how many layers I wear. [livejournal.com profile] suarez is also ill, though since he has nowhere he needs to be this week, his fever already broke yesterday and he's getting lots of rest. (As I have to be on my feet and work regular shifts, I'm not recovering nearly as fast. Hrm.) We're supposed to go to his cousin's quinceanera party tonight, but I don't think I can go. That sucks, because it would be my first ever quinceanera party invitation. I don't want to get other people sick, though, as this crud is extremely virulent. It has already been passed to [livejournal.com profile] soror, [livejournal.com profile] suarez, [livejournal.com profile] willworks and [livejournal.com profile] theuberbob. It's not like I'm smooching any of those people either; it's just that contagious.

So behind on work and comments and emails and things. It will all have to wait until I am not completely made of phlegm, though.

Today, the lymph nodes right under my ears/chin are swollen and hurty.

I so do NOT need this right now. Even if it's just a cold/allergies. I HAVE STUFF TO DO!

EDIT: It'd better be allergies or a cold, because heh, I no longer have health insurance. That was a fun six months! (I'll be trying to get the insurance the comic store job offers once A-Kon is over...)

They are slightly smaller now, but still hard and sore. None of the others seem affected, and I don't feel bad, tired or run-down.

I've had a horrible headache since Saturday afternoon. It started in the comic store, perhaps because of the noise level (Saturday is a big gaming day) or maybe my sinuses just dislike me and want me to suffer. No telling! It persisted through Saturday night, abated for part of Sunday morning, then came back Sunday afternoon. It's still kind of here, so I am not taking any chances and am drinking tons of water and resting up.

It's my usual Monday off from the comic store, the day I usually work on Radio stuff all day long, but I really can't afford to let this headache turn into actual sickness. (As in, sickness that might interfere with the day job...) So, it's a resting day. I'll probably go to the grocery store tonight with [livejournal.com profile] suarez when he gets off work, but until then, I'll be having a lie down for most of the day.

Even though I know this is the best plan of action, I am fretting about not getting anything done and feel like I am being horribly lazy! ^_^;

Watchmen opens on Friday. I am excited/nervous about seeing it. I really want it to be good, but also really fear it being bad. Trying hard not to get my hopes up.

I went and voted this morning. [livejournal.com profile] willworks and I walked over to Churchill High School before I had to go to work, which caused me to have flashbacks to high school. (I had to walk there every day I went to school there...) But my patriotic duty is done. Now comes the waiting!

In other news, of especial interest to [livejournal.com profile] obimom, singing legend Yma Sumac died at the age of 86.

Don't know who she is? She was an awesome Peruvian singer with a five-octave vocal range. My Mom and Pops always listened to her records in the house when I was a kid, because they were awesome.


My sinus infection is clearing up. Thank goodness for antibiotics! I've been falling behind on Radio Comix work because of the long illness, since the day job was wiping me out. But now I am doing better and catching up with all kinds of stuff. Of course, now we've got an issue with the SinFactoryComix site- we've got to get that taken care of this week. If it's not one thing it's another. We're also finishing up Milk Presents: Greek Fire #1 so we can turn that in; next up is Furrlough #187 and a couple of other fun books. I've also got mountains of email to answer.

Because of all this Radio work, day job work and sickness, I've had very little time for gaming, but I did manage to get the new Vampiric Batling pet in World of Warcraft. I also got the "50 minipets" achievement a few days after the big patch, so I got the skunk pet as well. I sadly have not had time to play The Sims 2 for well over a month or more now. I miss my video games!

Anyway, back to work for me. I have until 9:30 to get as much Radio work done as I can.

No one ever really liked Loverboy, did they? I honestly can't imagine that they were once someone's favorite band ever.

The weekend was busy, much like the rest of the week. I had a lot of work, both day job wise and Radio wise, and I'm still fighting off this horrible cold thing. (Which actually, has turned out to be a sinus infection... I am getting antibiotics today though, so that's a good thing!) Friday night we went to have Chinese with [livejournal.com profile] ichbinkeinenazi, Susan and their kids, then hung out with [livejournal.com profile] denshousha, [livejournal.com profile] matthigh, [livejournal.com profile] jameshanrahan, [livejournal.com profile] densetsujin, Trent and Kelly at the apartment, and had a nice time watching anime, obscure Chaplin shorts and Rebelde. Saturday, I worked on Radio stuff, then [livejournal.com profile] suarez and I went to see the Rocky Horror play that my friend Lee was appearing in. It was very nice to see him and some of the other old friends who showed up. Sunday, Suar and I went to Sea World to activate the new season passes he got for us (I think he gets a discount through his job...). We didn't hit any rides at all, instead just looked at the animals and such. (Though, seeing the killer whale show made me really sad, for some unknown reason.) Thus, we got to hear some really stupid comments from the general public, which are as follows:

(In the puffin exhibit):
Woman to child: "Those aren't penguins, they're birds!"

Man to girlfriend: "Those are birds, not ducks!"

(In the penguin exhibit):
Woman: "Is that some kind of bird-fish?!"

(At the Asian otter exhibit):
Man to children: "Those are the babies of the seals we just saw!"

Ah, humanity, how can you be so stupid? It was just like something out of Idiocracy.

After that, I had a store meeting at work, so I went there. Then, home to play a little tiny bit of WoW, and then sleep. Today I have a rare weekday off, so I am working on Radio stuff with [livejournal.com profile] willworks (mail order, errands, production work, etc.) and will go to pick up my prescription later. Which is good, since the snot coming out is still bright dayglo green, now with added blood! Delightful! I also have to pay a printing bill today.

One bonus of this weekend was in talking to my old friends at Rocky Horror, I was able to get back in touch with one of my dearest friends from back in the day, [livejournal.com profile] senni. It's so cool to hear from her again after all these years!

And now, the obligatory auction posting:

Horrifying amounts of green stuff continue to come out of me. It's really gross. My nostrils are taking turns at being completely blocked as well, so I can only breathe through one or the other, but never both. At night, when I sleep, they both refuse to work at all. I am sick and tired of being so sick and tired. But there's still work to do, so I do it.

The new drill is this: wake up around 6 am (since that's when [livejournal.com profile] suarez has to be up), throw on some clothes, get dropped off at the apartment, do work (or sleep a little more) until it's time to get ready for the day job, go to the day job (anywhere from 6 to 8 hours, usually starting at 10 am), come back to the apartment, work on Radio stuff until around 8-10 pm, go home, do some house stuff and go to sleep. Lather, rinse, repeat. Exciting stuff, no?

Yesterday, I managed to cludge together a basic update to the Radio Comix website. Nothing major, just some news updates. Amazingly, I was also able to get it uploaded and working, which is saying something, considering our clunky outdated hosting. (Which will hopefully be changed by the end of this month, knock wood.) We'll be updating the promo pictures later today, once [livejournal.com profile] willworks gets them ready. (Promo pics for Milk Presents: Greek Fire #1 and Furrlough #187.) Also worked on more mail order stuff, some paperwork, and some other odds and ends. This morning, I updated the online store

Today is New Comic Book day. Medium manga week (about 19 titles for us), probably will be busy because Secret Invasion is out from Marvel and there's some Final Crisis thingie from DC. The only Marvel books I noticed/cared about were the Sky Doll hardback graphic novel (which, if you like Rock'N'Rule or W.I.T.C.H. at all you should be getting... though it is definitely not for kids) and the new Alan Davis Thor: The Truth of History one-shot. The art is gorgeous, as always. I love me some Alan Davis! I have to remember to let JAR know about that one. Tonight, I have to go work the Doctor Who event that the local club is hosting- we'll be selling toys for the store once again. So, it's basically a split shift today. Tomorrow there's much to do before I go into work as well.

And of course, I've been posting more auctions. Obligatory auction link to follow:

I seem to have picked up some kind of virus/cold thing, as I am feverish, ache-y and have coughed up some stuff that is a terrifying shade of neon chartreuse. [livejournal.com profile] suarez is likewise suffering, and his suffering started before mine did. It is unknown if we acquired this illness from his co-worker who decided to come into work sick every day, or from one of my customers at the store who came in bragging of how incredibly ill he was. (My response? "Go home! Why are you here?!" His answer? "It's new comic book day!" Augh!) It's pretty harsh though and I feel pretty awful. But work still must be done, both at the day job and at Radio.

Speaking of Radio, we got Furrlough #186 turned in to the printers! It's a good issue, I think. We're now getting stuff together for Furrlough #187, so get those stories in if you are an artist who works for us. ^_^ We're now also putting the finishing touches on (in other words: doing the production work) Milk Presents: Greek Fire #1, which features hilarious (naughty) stories from [livejournal.com profile] shon_howell and [livejournal.com profile] poinko. It's good stuff! After that, it's time to work on Porndexters #3. In between all this, we are trying to work ahead on other things like ads, scheduling stuff, and general day-to-day business things. We're hoping to get the hosting squared away for the new Radio site rebuild by the end of this month, but my sickness today is putting a damper on my working. It's really vexing when I want to do a bunch of work, but keep having to go lie down. Note to self: must remember to scan more stuff for auctions and for the online store!

In other stuff, not much else is happening. We're mostly working a lot. [livejournal.com profile] willworks might go to the 24 Hour Comic Book Day event today at the store I work at, but I'm probably going to sit it out at home and recuperate. I have to work there tomorrow anyway, and want to conserve my strength.

I've got new auctions up on eBay! Check them out here:
New eBay auctions in this link! The usual array of comics, manga, books, Japanese fashion mags and other nerdly odds and ends. This stuff must all go, so it's fairly bargain priced. ^_^

I oddly had today off from work, due to the entire staff needing to be on hand on Saturday, so I woke up early to make the best of it.

I scanned a ton of stuff for eBay, answered a bunch of email, dealt with a shipping issue regarding Furrlough #185 (damages that aren't really our fault or the printers fault, but now we'll have to try to prove it), updated the online store, got the store email newsletters sent out, and was in the middle of working on subscriptions and orders.

Then the mother of all sinus pressure migraines decided to come live in my skull. Which could probably be powered through if not for the waves of nausea that come with it. Meds have been taken and proven useless and an hour nap did not even dent it. Since I don't want the malingering cold to decide this is a prime opportunity to come back and make me sicker (bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus infection, etc.), I'm going to sleep for a while to see if that helps. NyQuil, take me away!

I did take this quiz that [livejournal.com profile] newwavezombie took, and I scored pretty well (as if there were any doubt):
I was Righteous!
I scored 100% on the
Take the 80s quizby SheGoddess: How to lose weight


It was not particularly hard, in my opinion. I think the most obscure band in the quiz is Haircut 100, which isn't that obscure.

Now to sleep.

This is becoming my default state of mind, since I am still not over the cold I picked up at Mephit FurMeet (which yes, I know, I didn't do a con report for yet- heck, I haven't done one for Anthrocon or A-Kon yet either. I fail.) The cold has moved into the "let's drain down the back of the throat!" phase, which means I'll soon sound like a frog and be hacking up stuff. To make things more interesting, Aunt Flo is visiting as well. So my feverish state could be due to hormone spikes OR it could be the cold malingering on. There's no way to tell! Hooray! It's random sensations of illness twenty-four-seven! Yay!

We finished up the solicitations for January 2009 books and emailed them off to [livejournal.com profile] matthigh tonight. I'll post more about that later, but of course, there's a new issue of Genus: Male scheduled. There's heaps more Radio stuff to do, but it all has to be squeezed in around the day job hours, so that's contributing to the tiredness. We're working on the next issue of Furrlough right now, too. In good news, all the Hit the Beach #14 pages printed just fine- not too dark at all. So, I was worried for nothing- [livejournal.com profile] willworks got everything adjusted just right.

Speaking of the day job, we have two state-wide gaming tournaments this weekend so everyone has to work that. It's looking to be really busy.

Coincidentally, Hurricane Ike is projected to come towards San Antonio this weekend as well. Considering how well San Antonio usually reacts to heavy rain and flooding, this could make for an interesting time. I'm wondering if we'll have a repeat of the Big Flood of 1998, when I-35 was underwater. (The water came up to the roofs of the SUVs and pick up trucks that people had had to leave on the road when the water came up suddenly.) We've got candles, cat food and toilet paper, but we'll probably buy some water in case and fill up a few buckets in case we need it for flushing or something.

In other stuff, thinking about wedding planning does *not* make me happy. It makes me stressed and cranky. I'm horrified at the sheer outrageous cost of everything. I mean, I know it's a special day you only do once, but it just seems so impractical to blow thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars and start a new life deeply in debt. If anyone has tips to make a wedding more economical (like how to lie to the caterers or the hall about what your event is, so they don't charge "wedding prices"), let me know, seriously. I plan to pick [livejournal.com profile] obimom's brain about how she did her wedding, since I seem to remember she did a lot herself. (And with two kids and student loans for her Masters, I'm pretty sure she and my Pop weren't rolling in money at the time...)

Despite all this stress and tiredness, the Moomin comics by Tove Jansson make me happy.

Exhaustion

This is becoming my default state of mind, since I am still not over the cold I picked up at Mephit FurMeet (which yes, I know, I didn't do a con report for yet- heck, I haven't done one for Anthrocon or A-Kon yet either. I fail.) The cold has moved into the "let's drain down the back of the throat!" phase, which means I'll soon sound like a frog and be hacking up stuff. To make things more interesting, Aunt Flo is visiting as well. So my feverish state could be due to hormone spikes OR it could be the cold malingering on. There's no way to tell! Hooray! It's random sensations of illness twenty-four-seven! Yay!

We finished up the solicitations for January 2009 books and emailed them off to [livejournal.com profile] matthigh tonight. I'll post more about that later, but of course, there's a new issue of Genus: Male scheduled. There's heaps more Radio stuff to do, but it all has to be squeezed in around the day job hours, so that's contributing to the tiredness. We're working on the next issue of Furrlough right now, too. In good news, all the Hit the Beach #14 pages printed just fine- not too dark at all. So, I was worried for nothing- [livejournal.com profile] willworks got everything adjusted just right.

Speaking of the day job, we have two state-wide gaming tournaments this weekend so everyone has to work that. It's looking to be really busy.

Coincidentally, Hurricane Ike is projected to come towards San Antonio this weekend as well. Considering how well San Antonio usually reacts to heavy rain and flooding, this could make for an interesting time. I'm wondering if we'll have a repeat of the Big Flood of 1998, when I-35 was underwater. (The water came up to the roofs of the SUVs and pick up trucks that people had had to leave on the road when the water came up suddenly.) We've got candles, cat food and toilet paper, but we'll probably buy some water in case and fill up a few buckets in case we need it for flushing or something.
