Fuck antidepressants. Or don't. I don't know. I love them and I hate them.

This is my fifth day period, first day on a full dose. I'm not sure if I'm feeling it yet- my head feels great, but this could just be placebo effect, since most people don't feel it for a few weeks.

What I am feeling is side effects. Nausea, headache, drowsiness, really bizarre detachment (no, really. That song, "Little Red Riding Hood"? It came on the radio, and for some reason it terrified me. Maybe I was reading too much Why Women Hate Men/Psychotic Letters From Men. I don't know)... it's the flu sans aches and fever.

Hopefully, the side effects will wear off within the next week. Otherwise, I need to talk to my doctor about switching meds... which could be a problem, because it takes about a month for everything to feel 'even' on them, and I have to be back at school in a month. And I really, really need to be ready to go back to school in a month.

On a MUCH more exciting note, I'm flying to LA tomorrow, seeing Boosh on Tuesday, and flying back on Wednesday. Provided the side effects don't keep me home, of course.

One handprint shaped bruise on my arm
Five scratches on my wrist
One shattered toenail
One partially swollen lip where my tooth jammed it
One bit tongue
Uncountable bruises on my leg
One glorious scratch that may or may not scar
Two bruises from the front of each leg at about thigh-height from being pushed against the stage at the Andrew WK concert!

Verdict: Absolutely, 100% worth it. I was a bit tentative at first- there were signs on the door "no moshing" "no crowd surfing." Whatever, Clark University. You can't hold an Andrew WK concert without the mosh. I was front-and-center in the mosh (after some fighting), I rushed the stage, I got the drumsticks and then gave them away to Jerry (who was stuck working security and, therefor, didn't have a fighting chance.)

Yes, I touched Andrew WK.

Other ways that this was awesome: This was the first concert Andrew WK has played with his band in two years. So he's definitely going to remember it. He changed the lyrics to "I Love NEW YORK CITY" to "I Love MASSACHUSETTS". Also, we were sneaky on our contract and made sure that he actually played his OWN music, since he likes to fuck with people who can't write a contract by showing up wtih a full-string orchestra and reading poetry. Also, the Other Erin works for the committee that booked him, so she spent all day with him. Which helped me to get to spend some time with him, as well. And since her name is also Erin, it's sort of like Andrew WK knows my name. :) Sort of.

...

I have a final at 8:00 in the morning. Why did I think I'd be able to study after this? I am so sweaty.

OK.

The next person who starts singing "Cupid's Chokehold" while I'm humming "Breakast in America" gets a serious smacking. This has gone on long enough.

So... Primeval. It's one Myfanwy and a good dose of sexy away from being Torchwood, BUT...

I like it. The CGI is awful, and the acting is iffy at times. Transitions in it suck, and OMG dinosaurs? Still, the main character is a biologist. A BIOLOGIST. And... uh, pretty much my future. Blonde lizard lady? Future me.

Also, lots of running away from large dinosaurs. That bit's pretty cool as well.

I'm leaving for Worcester tomorrow morning, and I'm finally packed. It feels... crazy. Realy, really crazy. I had a hard time saying goodbye to eveyone last night. I don't think they really know just how much they've meant to me over this last year, especially with everything that's gone on. Being away from my parents is no big deal- I can cope fine without them. Being away from my friends... I'm far too reliant on them for my own good. I'm not worried about making friends, but the transition period won't be fun.

Mostly, though, that's just me being a bit dramatic. It's not an "I'm never going to see you again" thing, or a "maybe I won't make friends" thing. I'll make friends and I'll see them again. I'm just a bit... hedgy... about leaving my support network.

Harrison also gets the Awkward of the Year award. You can probably guess the why for that.

I just found out that it's an $8 rate to send twenty pounds of books all the way to Worcester.


FUCK YEAH. YESSSS.

Umm... I need to go pick out my books. Lots of them. THAT'S TWICE MY CAT'S WEIGHT IN BOOKS! (For everyone's information, I leave on Monday.)

Aunt Gayle just died.

Dad came down to tell me and I thought it was a sick joke. I was packing to see her- TOMORROW- and...

I don't know what's going on... if I need to still pack to go to LA, when I'm going, if... I was so happy to go and to be able to see her and get sushi with her friends.

I'm not any good at this and I don't know what to do. I was going to go out with friends tonight and I don't know f I still should, or what.

And this fucking comes after last night with Dad being a bastard and... shit. Just, fucking EVERYTHING.

She was my best friend.

This weekend was bizarre- all ups and downs. Harrison asked me out (Happy), Aunt Gayle went back in to ICU (sad), I got Harrison-hugs and boyfriendage because of it (Happy!), Mom went to LA (Sad.)

BUT: Now Aunt Gayle is back out of ICU again, in a seemingly miraculous way. She was supposed to die last night- I honestly thought she would- but, somehow, she's better. Even her kidney stone passed, and NO ONE EVEN NOTICED IT. This is awesome. In honor of this Awesome, here are some other things that make me happy:

Boyfriends who are way to considerate. (Let's see how many times I can mention that I'm not single in one post, shall we?)

The fact that my boyfriend's name is Harrison, and he plays bass. Which makes me think of Harrison O'Rourke. >.>

Dannica's car is a Probe. When she's riding someone's bumper, she's probing their ass.

Watching kids run around a campground playing Marco Polo, and then shouting out Polo to mess them up. And THEN realizing that everyone is drunk and it's far more fun to play historical figure Marco Polo and shout out things like Margaret (Thatcher!), and having the kid that's playing Marco get all angry when she runs by, and point at you and go: "I already found you!"

My dog playing in the ocean.

Sea lions.
