I knew it was going to be cold returning home today from the store, but I did not expect to fall twice victim to the dastardly black ice while on the phone canceling my planned 24 hour adventure in Palo Alto. I very nearly stabbed my eye out with the iphone on the second incident, because apparently all this time in California has ruined me for icy adventures. I use to skate on this stuff back in Oregon in my sketchers! Oh how the less than mighty have fallen. And do not worry, I fell on the amply padded thigh and do not even appear to have bruises forming. Huzzah for fat? X3

Aunt #3 is heroically venturing down to Santa Clara to bring me groceries, pick up meds, and drop off new boots (Costco apparently has fake uggs?), so it is doubtful I'll be sojourning outside until Thursday late night, as Kol is stupid and did not realize my Friday/Saturday shifts began at 12am, not 12pm. Oh woes, oh woes. At least by then I'll surely be feeling better :D.  

Will update later with further amusements as I encounter them. But first, sleep <3.

I did not fall down the escalators post-midnight shift! It was a very productive overnight, in that I knocked back about 12 hours of shipment over 6 hours, 15 minutes of processing time. What makes that number all the more striking is what happened during the overnight, which those of you who follow my twitter already probably know. In short Kol = not of good health )

But I can rest now, once brain decides to shut off, as I don't have to go back into the store until Sunday night <33.

You know, leaving work at 2AM is great and all for avoiding traffic, but when coupled with sinus meds really impairs your ability to walk down escalators. Or in my case, facilitates falling down the escalator. It was probably a good thing I was putting my helmet on already X3. (And yes it was only the last six or seven steps, but still, ouch).

Other war wounds of the night: cut across the back of my right hand (and I do mean across all of it-- it took two bandaids to cover tonight) , another mysterious cardboard cut across my left wrist, three bruises on my legs from moving evil storage bars, and cardboard burns on my right arm. I'm so sick and tired of cardboard X0000.

I don't want to go into work at noon. Someone save me ;_______;

Anyone have experience with magnesium deficiencies? Mum's convinced* that's causing my recent non-allergies health issues, and after a short googlefu & nutritional information hunting, I discovered I only ingest between 3-20% of the daily intake**. Further Kol Dietary Fail.

Even if I don't have a magnesium deficiency I need to get that level up so I don't have problems in the future. And since March is unofficially Operation Defatting By Full-Scale Diet Attack, I am implementing Project: Eat More Magnesium & Protein Rich Foods and am throwing up this entry to suggestions on how to inject both into my diet (yay recipe times!).

Three things to note: I'm on a budget, cooking is limited to Toaster Oven/Microwave/Electric Skillet/Crock Pot, and I have a lot of really lame food sensitivities.*** I love cooking experiments, though, and if you guys challenge me I promise to post results! Remember the edible shepherd's pot pie made using only the microwave? XD

post footnotes & why last night was not a good night XD )

How long have I had Shiny? And how long have I been beating my head on the inability to hook up the computer to George's monitor, thus ensuring me actually being able to *SIT* at my desk?

Yeah. It turned out the problem was so simple. I just had to go to the System Preferences and let it know I wanted to switch displays XD

(Also, this song is probably my favorite song EVER right now. Stupid Avatar Vids >.
