Wow, it's been a long time and the layout of the posting box is totally different.... okay,sorry had to ooh and ahh a bit.

I wish I could say I've had all types of wonderful things going on, and I guess I kind of have. Not bad stuff, other than still not finding a full time job, but still nothing just wonderful.

I've been doing some holiday craft shows which I'm happy to report were successful. Made a good bit of money which has helped for the holidays. Finished the last show this past Saturday and I'm glad to know I'm done for the holidays in that regard.

Been busy getting ready with said shows, with embroidery and jewelry making. I have been so bad and haven't posted any pics here but you can find pics under my facebook account here: https://www.facebook.com/gateruner/photos_albums. Most are under the mobile uploads folder.

Hrrrmmm, what else? I may be going back to Best Buy to work again. They are needing someone and I'm.... well, I'm needing a job. It's not ideal and I'm not overly thrilled about it but we need the money and it's going to be about all I can find right now.

I've been good getting xmas stuff up and ready this year. Had my tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving and have a good bit of my shopping completed already. I'm going to be sending out Xmas cards today as well, so be on the lookout some of you :)

How is everyone else? I hope you are all well!

Yay! I had a GREAT time. I first met up with huntersglenn at the airport and we got checked in to the hotel. We got along really well and I had such fun getting to know her better.

Then we met up with switch842 for dinner. That turned into a group thing and we had a great time eating and chatting.

The convention was great, I don't even know where to begin on what all happened and what was said. But my most memorable experience was my photo op with Paul McGillion. As I made my way up the line the lady asked if I wanted her to hold my reading glasses (which had been hanging on my shirt) because they may reflect in the picture. I said sure and she took them. Well Paul gave me a HUGE hug which made my day and we snapped the picture. I was on a dream cloud at that point and all of a sudden I heard, "Ma'am, Ma'am, your glasses." I turned around and everyone was laughing because Paul was wearing them!

I started laughing too and went back to him for them and he pretended to walk past me going, "hello, hello, don't you need these, hello?" like he couldn't see me. He laughed and took them off as I said, "yes I do." and he grinned and said, "Yes you do need them, sweetie." Eeeeh! So now I can't ever lose these glasses. :D

Also huntersglenn and I saw Dan Payne walk around a corner and right into a wall. That was pretty funny as he was following Alex Zahara. After that she started calling me Alex and I called her Dan as we walked around everywhere since she was following me.

Here are my photo ops:Collapse )

So the countdown to the SG Chicago con is on! Two weeks from today I will be meeting up with huntersglenn and the soon after meeting up with switch842!

But I checked on Creation's site and it turns out that Ryan Robbins has had to cancel. And I was trying to find a good pic from Falling Skies for him to autograph *pouts*

Tony Amendola (Bra'tac) will be replacing him.

I hope no one else cancels! Especially not Torri! I'm only lacking her autograph on a complete cast photo.

Well I got the A1C blood test results back and I DO NOT have diabetes! Thank goodness for that! I guess my blood sugar was just a little high that day, maybe from breakfast or something. But it was still a wake up call that I need to get my weight down before it becomes a reality.

My doctor even mentioned that today when I went for a visit about my meds. She was really pushing that I change my eating habits and exercise. I know I need to, badly. So I'm going to try and do better, honest.

As for the arthritis I am going to get some of that glucosamine and chondroitin medicine to take and see if that helps. I hope it does.

So, that's about all for now, just wanted to follow up!

I'm sick to death of hearing about the whole Chick-Fil-A debacle going on right now. And I think what makes me even more irritated about this is that people are shocked at Chick Fil A's stance. Hello?! They CLOSED on SUNDAY'S people. The company was founded by a "god fearing upright Christian" man who, by the way, established the core values that drove the restaurant to the success that it is today.

You ate the chicken sandwich two weeks ago, pickle or no pickle, nothing's changed except they were actually asked about their stance. Big whoopee shit.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for GLBT rights. But if I chose to live my life with the same hate that fuels these kinds of debates, I wouldn't have a life worth living. And the people that keep precipitating this bullshit are just as bad.

Amen, hallelujah, glory be, shit I need a tylenol! /end rant.

So I go to the doctor today because I've been feeling shitty for a while now. Not just my mood and depression, but physically feeling bad.

After a whole bunch of tests and xrays, I find out that I have arthritis in my left hip and knee. That at least explains that pain. And then my blood sugar was high so they were sending off for some other extensive blood test to definitively say whether I have diabetes. Damn. Just damn! I can't win for losing.

Damn, another one of those days. And I tried to research some stuff online and found out that what I wanted wasn't possible. Always wanting the easy way out.

Some days it just doesn't pay to be alive.
