Important stuff that just happened first, then the rest of the post.

Charlie's being transported to UVA as I type. I'm...a lot more emotional than I was last time, probably because surgery is pretty much a given this time. Or maybe I'm just still dealing with everything from last time. No idea, but I finally stopped crying. Hey, I can always go back to it later.

We are packing and putting things together, stopping mail, all that sort of thing. Unless it comes today, we're going to have to ask one of the neighbors to keep an eye out for the dvd player, which is coming via UPS. Well, at least we won't have to worry about losing it...


I've started to use tags in my journal. Mainly to help anyone who's new to Charlie's saga, but I've been thinking about using them for a while. I don't know if I'll go back and tag everything in my journal. That's a lot of years, especially going through by hand. Of course, the whole enterprise would be simpler if I remembered to tag the *new* entries rather than having to go back and do it...


I got one of the two pair of fingerless gloves I ordered today, and they're perfect. My hands (especially my right, for some unknown reason) tend to get chilly while I'm using my computer, but besides the fact that typing in gloves is inconvenient at best, I hate having my fingertips covered for any length of time. I don't know why, I just flat out do. So, I got a pair of black and grey striped fingerless gloves to keep by the 'puter (those are the ones that arrived) and a pair of fleece fingerless gloves with a removable mitten cover (there's a button on the back of each glove so that the cover doesn't flop around) for outside. I've been thinking about this for a while, but never remembered to search for them. Till now.:)


Damn. A Craven County couple are in the Guinness World Records book.

The two did nothing outlandish such as sky-diving upside down, dancing for days, taking the longest lawn mower ride or having the most tattoos.

No, Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher of the Brownsville community have been married for more than 84 years.

Great article. And so much *awwwwww*.

Though, I hope people don't start holding them up and going "See? They've been married for eighty-four years, you should totally stay in your sucky marriage". 'Cause, from what I can tell, the reason they've stayed together so long is 'cause they *don't* have a sucky marriage.


Oh look, a meme.

Grab the book nearest you (the NEAREST, not your favorite book, the coolest, or the most intellectual).
Turn to page 56.
Find the fifth full sentence.
Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LJ:

Figuring out which is the nearest was difficult. But I did it, for you guys. ;)

The Android's Dream by John Scalzi

"Howdy Ben", Creek said "fancy meeting you here".

Hey look! No spoilers. *grin*


The Portable Bluetooth Rotary Phone. I kind of, sort of *really* want this. Sad, I know. And if it weren't two hundred and fifty dollars, I might have talked myself into one someday.
