This was one of those days where the idea of getting out of bed got both middle fingers raised way, way up.

Not in a OMG angsty/depression based mood mind you, nope, this was sheer, 100% lazy. Gotta give my props and due to the sin of Sloth, don'tcha know. I mostly hung out and played Pokemon in bed. Didn't feel hungry until later on, keeping an eye on my appetite as we do not want our weight going below the 140 mark again. Had a bagel, and while not exactly 100% appetizing and sounding good, was what felt best in the stomach.

I'm pretty sure there was a dream happening this morning, I just don't remember it. Whatever it was can go straight to hell, however, because I didn't appreciate that pseudo-freakout that happened when a nonexistent someone wrapped some cold arms around me and held me from behind. First time I've woken up in the last few days genuinely about ready to launch myself up and stick to the ceiling like a cat. Creeped me out and had goosebumps from when I'd woken up and for the next ten, fifteen minutes while I calmed myself down and muttered under my breath.

We'll see if I have a dream tonight as I go to sleep. One I can remember, at least. Concerned for Mom, she's not doing very well with the high possibility of an ulcer and being in a lot of pain due to that and a sinus infection.

T-minus a bit more than 24 hours and counting until the concert. Totes excited and nervous for it to happen.

Mood otherwise was pretty baseline. Nothing AMAZINGOMG or TERRIBLEHORRIBLEWTH going on in life.

Anxiety from the tsunami's still there, more centric on the whole potential nuclear disaster that should have people going, "Awww shit" more than they are already. Nuclear stuff isn't my forte or area of expertise, but radiation+potential for a meltdown = very bad news. I'm smart enough to grasp those basics. Now I'm just sad, shaking my head at the death toll and of the level of destruction Mother Nature can cause.

It takes humanity around 10+ years to get a decent sized village or city fully up and running. Mother Nature can take it out, as we've seen, in a matter of minutes. I'm kind of glad humanity can't harness that type of power, we have too many who'd abuse it, sadly.

Due to being a bad girl and not doing my friday log, I'll just post a bit about it here and move on.

Friday Events )

Saturday found me waking early so I could get my check cashed and such before everything closed.

Nice lengthy and rambly Saturday log ) 

Highlight of the day was purchasing Pokemon Black. Yes, I'm 23 (nearly) going on 35 going on 10. Bite me, I still enjoy my silly little children's video game with the adorable creatures you stuff into little balls and collect like coins. Tonight's bedtime story is totally going to be about Amara (name of my trainer) and her silly before-the-Professor-showed-up adventures trying to mediate between the massively unresolved UST between her smarty-pants know-it-all and rather critical personality friend, Cheren and the delightfully sweet, but bubblebrained and not terribly smart girl who tries very hard named Bianca. The three of them have known each other a minimum of 10 years by the time we're clued into their adventures and it's amusing to pick up little clues and play with them. Poor Amara, I have a feeling Bianca gets them into a lot of trouble that Cheren ends up yelling at her for and that Amara ends up having to soothe hurt feelings and take responsibility for getting them out of trouble a lot. *laugh*

Still need to pick up my copy of Twilight's Dawn by Anne Bishop so I complete my series collection. Stupid brain, can't have just all but one of the books, gotta have'em all. How this doesn't apply to video games is beyond me; I'm not a total completionist like a lot of people I know.

Also; whoever decided Daylight Savings Time was a good idea needs a swift kick in the unmentionables... and the kneecaps, just for good measure. I liked that extra hour, thank you!

8.9 magnitude earthquake hit Japan. Tsunamis wiped out a lot of the villages there, death toll is at 29, very very likely going to explode into the hundreds, if not thousands or up to tens of thousands.

Tsunami warnings up to 5 feet for the Oregon coast, 6+ feet for Hawaii is projected.

Empathy is kind of a bitch, I don't like having the ability to just think about it and be able to put myself in someone's shoes who're in that situation.

I want to cry out of... I dunno, frustration maybe, I'm powerless to do anything but pray for them, and praying I've been doing. Out of a sense of loss, I love the Japanese culture and it's horrifying to watch this happen. It's just horribly, horribly sad.

Anxiety is not helped by the fact I know we're in the Pacific Ring of Fire; it could happen to us as well. Paranoid, maybe, but it's not entirely unrealistic, as we're on a few fault lines and should be prepared for something of a magnitude 6.5+ just to be on the safe side.

...but we're not, the buildings are flimsy and the damage is going to be devastating when it happens.

...oh, and that nuclear reactor not being able to cool itself? Not cool. Last thing we need is that kicking off the zombie apocalypse. /fist shake and laughs. xposted over to my LiveJournal.
