This Musicplasma thing is so effin cool.

Also went to the doc's today got a blood test to see if I have some kind of infection which is doubtful but some anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants for my neck which let me tell you can't move. bizarrojack is a super terrific A+ boyfriend for taking me to get my perscription filled after my trip to the doctor almost ended in tragedy becasue it's hard to drive when you can't turn your head. And I told myself I wouldn't take any days off in January. Crap.

I could have written almost every sentence of this post. It's good to have somewhere to turn to feel safe. (If for whatever reason you go over to this community and decide to comment, do read the rules first, please.)

Now back to lying near-motionless on the couch.

Well, you're back to lying motionless on the couch, so I suppose asking if you needed anything on the way home would be somewhat pointless. But I hope you feel better soon!

*snort* i typed a whole long response to the author of that post, only to belatedly realize that it's a friends-only community. so, um, i'm gonna stick it here because i don't feel like joining the community to reply to just one post, and my response pretty much applies to you as well. >:) so, here goes:

what it really comes down to, in my opinion, is living what you believe. if the issue truly is that important to you, then you probably don't want to closely associate with anyone who doesn't respect that. the fact that your friend (acquaintance?) said he wished you weren't so "direct" about your feelings is, frankly, his issue and not yours. be comfortable with who you are. if you find yourself feeling uncomfortable stating your stance, explore the reasons behind it -- is it because you're not sure you really believe what you're saying you believe, or is it fear of what other people think of you? the latter can be very tough to deal with, and not caring what other people think of you is easier said than done, but the end result is worth it. the people who genuinely care about you for you will understand that this is an important part of who you are, and will respect you for it. at the very least, they will agree to disagree, and if you're really comfortable with each other, maybe you can engage in some friendly debates. otherwise, i'd suggest either ignoring it, or reassessing your friendship with that person. if they will, as i said, respect your beliefs without necessarily agreeing with them, that's probably worth hanging on to. if not, well, you do the math. >;)

i know this sounds rather harsh, but if this issue really is that important to you, as it sounds, it's worth figuring these things out. i'm not saying "drop anybody who doesn't agree with you," and i'm also not saying "launch into a rant/lecture any time the subject comes up." i'm just saying that if the subject does come up, you shouldn't be uncomfortable stating your views. the same can be said about other potentially inflammatory issues such as abortion, homosexuality or gay marriage, HIV and AIDS, gun control... you get the idea. live what you believe. it can be rough, but you'll feel better about yourself. good luck!

Aw, the neck thing sucks so much! I hope you feel better soon! Not going to Tea tonight... too sore from excercising last night then standing all day. Not as sore as you, though. Let me know if you need anything.

if they didn't put the Yeah Yeah Yeahs so close to Husker Du, I would be all about it so far. But that is almost unforgiveable.

Oh yes, the ol' random neck pain. I've had that before and I know how hard it is to get around and also to relax. (At least you got some relaxants!) If you need anything give us a hollar and I hope you feel better soon.

Gosh, I didn't know anyone else got random neck pain but me. Whee! Thanks! I seem to feel better now.
Jan. 21st, 2004 10:52 pm (UTC)

Holy crap! I think that may be the coolest thing for music I've ever seen.
