Last night's time trial in sleep medications has proven as follows: Lunesta is indeed the one with the horrible, frightening aftertaste that corrupts any food or drink you try to follow it with and makes water taste like battery acid; I'd tried it years ago and only tried again in case the first experience had had some other tasty cause. Apparently certain folks have an enzyme that interacts with Lunesta and some don't -- I suspect it might be a good sleep aid but someone willing to try it more than once has to do that audition. Still, I think it beats Sonata, where if you don't fall asleep within about two hours it rebounds and you're wide awake. Ambien DOES work for me (though apparently less so when piled on several other meds as last night) but I have to ration because I only have four. *g* The Ativan was just to make me stop freaking out, and is rationed over the course of a sleepless night at about .5mg every two hours. That's the good stuff, baby.

In herbal news, taking 2 or 3 Valerian (also with a stinky aftertaste, but nothing like Lunesta-levels) adds a good punch to anything and tonight I'm going to try a single sleep drug combined with Valerian to see how it plays out. Last night, ultimately, I think it was the melatonin that did it.

And now, to put to bed an issue that was perking in my Ambienated mind last night, a poll:

[Poll #1346042]
sab: (h >> vicodin)
1. Waking up to find a fine smattering of feathers on your bed and shoulder and hip means your cat has eaten a bird on you sometime during the night. *re-shudders*

2. Rec me your favorite House/Wilson stories? My only prerequisite is that House is not cuddly and doesn't, at any time, go off his meds or stop being in chronic pain.

ETA: two more things...

3. Yuletide signups are open! I'm going to do a proper pimp post someday soon, explaining how this event goes beyond fandom as we know it and becomes more of a public service to the internet world as well as wish-fulfillment for people who might not even know they like fanfic.

4. Does the House ep "Cane and Able" make anyone else cry like a great big girl?

ETA one more thing...

5. [ profile] sophia_helix and [ profile] general_jinjur, thanks for all the healing and buffs! A PSA: never be a half-elf cleric. She can't use ANYTHING.

Today Studs Terkel died. That's worth remembering.

Studs Terkel, RIP, American hero )


And then in totally unrelated news there's that thing where David Tennant's leaving Doctor Who. I mean, come on. We saw this coming.

Tennant scared the pants off me before, and now I'm REALLY scared )


My tiny baby sister is turning 30 next week. Also in November, [ profile] mischa and [ profile] unwinding, my PEEPS, my PEERS, turn 30. AFTER my sister. World, why you scare me so?

For perspective it's also useful to point out that this November [ profile] rossetti turns a whopping 28, and my dear [ profile] _abulafia turns frickin' 24. Kids today. I swear. With their emo music and their Playstations and their YouTube! When I was yer age computers were green text on black and we all programmed in BASIC and played... what was that programming game with the turtle called?


I wrote House fic a couple weeks ago: HUGE EGO SORRY, like maybe 3200 words, House/Wilson.

I have this deep and absurd love for Greg House; I dream about him at least twice a week...

yeah, so Hugh Laurie went to Cambridge and can play the hell out of the piano; wanna make something of it??? )


Can't even imagine what's next. But wish my Dad a happy 74th on Nov 4 (I feel like there's something else important happening that day... hmmm....) and my sister [ profile] spycookies a happy and insane 30th on Nov 6th. In fact! If you have any good femslash recs (Grey's Anatomy's prob good, House, ANTM, etc) please go over to her LJ and post links in comments to her latest post as part of a birthday present from me? Pictures of hot lesbians also always appreciated. All she wants is Obama for her birthday, but I think eye candy and reading-candy is never a bad way to go. Help a sister out?


(The icon, get it? Get it? It's about House but ALSO about election day! Oh, I R so SMRT.)

Oh, my god, EVERYBODY. [ profile] runpunkrun wrote this When the Subject is a Fraction, where Rodney let Cadman get under his skin and release his hidden gay. Punk is like a SCULPTOR, and she can take this chunk of rock and carve away everything that isn't Rodney. Contents: hot blondes, screws, kisses. Marvelous.

Am back from a very inspiring and productive WBC class, feeling pumped about this pilot. And I have new SGA! [ profile] runpunkrun, disk is in the mail tomorrow, tick-a-lock and so forth, go be in a variable time-speed room and come back and read this post in, like, three days.

One Ambien left.

She said, watching SGA 2x11, Epiphany )
