Okay, on top of *everything else*--and the everything else boggles the mind--I am sick. I am sick in the way of things that come out from places in ways that they should not come out. Let's just leave it at that, and the roll of paper towels I have decimated. I have brought them *down*.

I am--Jesus, I feel like shit.

Also, I found my Bed. Apparently, being sick is an inspiration to narrow down the bed choices. I'm down to two, and frankly, whichever one my bank acct can afford is the one I will own.

Here's our choices. Both canopy. One metal, thin pipe-like, pretty. I cannot find it right now because hte link is at work and google hates me. It's by someone called Elliot's designs, the name is Manhattan. It has two high points--it looks easy to assemble when it arrives, and it'll pretty much go with anything. Price is around 399.

First bed: link from terpsichoreslyr:


The second one is by Broyhill, at the price of something like 1400, cut down to around 739 at Lacks in Austin.

Surely somewhere on earth, it will be cheaper. please God, let it be cheaper, because I've *sat* on this bed and cuddled this bed (in teh showroom, don't ask) and loved this bed. It's the one at the top in the corner, dark wood, all pretty and mine mine mine. I want thsi bed. And sickness contributes towards longing, and Linens and Things is having a sale on a bed-in-a-bag that would fit this so perfectly I could cry. Well, my nose is red and peeling. I am crying everytime I blow it.


See? Pretty.

I *want*. And come tax return, along with a mattress (christ, have you seen teh prices on those things?) one of these will be mine.


Okay, no, this is still self-pity, but it's the kind that's useful. Anyone--anyone at all--have some snippet they would love to see me write? Dont' say Pretty When You're Mine-- I don't post until I've written two sections ahead so I don't make really weird mistakes, and I'm only a section and a half ahead right now. But pretty much everything else is up for grabs. Give me an idea, something. I just need positive reinforcement and lacking that, cold syrup, the narcotic kind.

Also, excessive love to nonchop--seh sent me chocolate that arrived while I was wailing about end times when my nose began it's faucet thing. I love you. I love you so much. I mean, beyond the English language to comprehend.

Um. Yeah. It's that or updating my recs page again, and I'm going to need to split SVslash one day--it's just getting really frighteningly long. How many stories do I have there anyway? Cause I'm adding another fifty soon. And that's a lot.

My nose hurts. Its red and peeling and so gross. I am going back to teh chocolate and whimpering in teh pillow. For my bed.

This is so pathetic I'm almost ashamed to post. but not really.

that is my bed. How did you find it is fast?

*boggleS* It took me weeks of googling to hit the right keywords to pull that up!

yes. That is, I think, officially my first choice.

*loves you*

Aww, man. I hope you feel better. *cuddles carefully*

*keeps a safe distance for germs* Thanks.

If it's any consolation, I have a two page essay due in--um, twenty four minutes and I'm reading flist instead. I rock.

*gives you narcotic cough syrup lovingly* Sweetie? Go. To. Bed. Watch something stupid on TV. Or--oooh, go watch Whisper. Clark in glasses!

Basically, go for the resting thing.

...oooh. Twenty minutes. Um. Yeah. Going to get going on that.


Go to it, little one. be brave. And stuff.

Ineed more medication,.

Oooh, SO the first bed, if the link in the first comment is correct. Aww, hon, I sympathize...I just got over a horrible flu thing myself. :(

it is pretty, isn't it?

*stares at beds side by side*

Ooops. I got caught up in the pretty bedness (I like the Broyhill one) and forgot to say: Feel better!

I'm so glad it made you happy!

hope you feel better. drink tea, lots of tea and porn.

would it be evil to ask you to snippet Three Impossible Things? *big eyes*

I'd ship you my cough syrup, if I didn't think it would get one or both of us busted for shipping drugs.

Both beds are lovely! I especially like the wood one, though.

Do you have anything along the lines of a 'Mattress Factory' near you? There are a lot of similar small retail chains, the one near me has wonderful mattresses, at about half the price of the big name mattresses.

How about a snippet... futurefic, Lex and Clark in an established relationship, in the course of some experiments, Lex gets a superpower. I'm thinking something silly, like the power to speak to pigeons, or to climb trees at superspeed. But it doesn't have to be silly.

You are responsible for the cough-laugh that destroyed *two paper towels*.

Speak to pigeons would be *so* useful, though. For espionage.

*still giggling*

Anything around a Handful of Dust. I still groove to that.

I wish I could come up with some happy and/or silly thing, but I'm stuck on "doooooomed!" mode with these boys today.

*cocks head* Be specific. Like, what in that universe? I'm curious.

Wow, thank you! I'll see how close I am to finishing up this next set.

Immodium AD is your friend. Trust me on this one.


*sends hugs, but from a non-contagious distance*

That's scary. On the ride home, I had the most random fic idea and thought, Hmm... I wonder if anyone's done that. I bet Jenn would write it. It has drugged Clark. *smirk* I'll try to catch you on IM

Wow, this certainly is sick week. Everyone in my family got sick too. And quite a few people at my college. Yesterday it hurt like needles everytime I tried to swallow. But much better now. *Sends healing waves your way!* :)

(Turns into Jewish grandmother) Get plenty of rest, and eat chicken soup with luction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like catmoran's idea about the silly superpower.

Re the nose problem; it may be too late for this, but when I get a cold I keep a tube of Carmex in my pocket. Every time I blow my nose, I put Carmex on it. EVERY time. It keeps my nose from getting raw. With your nose already raw, it might sting a bit, so maybe Vaseline or something would help. You just have to reconcile yourself to having a shiny nose for a while if you do this.

*very careful hugs* for your achy joints. Isn't it amazing just how much gunk your body can manage to produce when you're sick? I hope that you start feeling better soon sweetie.

How about a snippet of Clark and Lex when Clark was still getting over the flu at the end of Somewhere? Lots of snuggling and some mutual woobiness might take your mind off things.
