while my voice hasn't completely returned, I can speak a bit more than a whisper this am ( which is all I could do yesterday and day prior )...
hopefully this is a good sign that whatever hit me is running its course... though I admit the humour aspect :)
could've been from either whatever has been making its rounds around work - or from my daughters...

IF I intend on going anywhere today, it'll need to be somewhere that there's no people to talk to - not that I'm anti-person today but that I am (still) unable to speak more than a whisper and even THAT takes effort and is painful *sighs*

@abbyshigh I don't think they minded too much at work yesterday *laughs* - but other than the pain, *shrugs* I had no big plans for this wknd anyways... as long as no one tries to call

Lol Morse code??

twice today when asked for advice/help on something I responded with "it's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight, rising up to the challenge of your rival" - probably not the answers they were seeking, but couldn't get it out of my head :D

because someone asked : yes, it did take me awhile to learn how to smile without showing teeth as it wasn't something I was used to doing but with how people ( strangers and thankfully only a couple friends ) reacted to the damage when I did I had to... I still do by accident :(

Happy Last Day Of July !... and moving on ;)

Just as I've always had an aversion to the cold, even before the damage which makes it particularly painful, I've had a physical predilection towards particular scents and textures...
and aversions in the same regard

certain scents & textures can have completely physical affects upon me - positively, but more often, it seems, negatively

an example...

new wireless router/modem now running - with only a minor hiccup (had to call so they could verify the new modem - and it helps if I plug into the right port... the old one only had the one port for phone/dsl !) ... already running much faster - and wireless appears better, too

I'm actually reaching the speeds I'm supposed to now with my dsl  ( my download speed is now higher than what the service claims *laughs* - shhh, don't tell them! )
only ONE of these films is one I liked, can you guess which one ?
Forrest Gump

Saving Christmas
Gone With The Wind
film hints :

Howard The Duck, fyi, was the winner - the ONLY one of these films I actually liked
"how come every time I see you you're either smiling or look so happy?"
because even when things are bad or down, there's ALWAYS something to smile or laugh about - even the darkest things can be laughably absurd or have an amusing touch to them, even if only memories !
Happy Friday The MF'ing 13th, My Lovelies & Gentlefolk ! :D

Fridays the 13ths have always been decent, if not outright wonderfully enjoyable days for me... never understood everyone's paranoidly superstitious issues regarding it
...ok, not everyone, but - yeah, a lot of people, sadly :(
even those with a strange love for fridays have taken issue with 13ths *shrugs* - it's a weird world, I...

once again we're just hours away from another beautiful Friday the 13th... can I get a fuckyeh and a Helsyeh ?! they tend to be the best days of any given year ! :) <3

"insert finger & slide smoothly until open" ... whomever writes these instructions REALLY doesn't know how my mind works very well ;)

spawnlings are - quite hilariously - laughing about how "breathing is a drug," "don't breathe kids, it'll become a habit," & "breathing is like papayas, not necessary & very dangerous" *laughs* - wonder where they get these little mental quirks from ? ;)
