    I really love when music is adapted from one genra to another, actually. Like a freaking bluegrass band (with no percussion instruments) covering the Who (who had a fucking amazing drummer as the core of their sound) amd somehow making it work.

        Thank you everyone!

        I battled the ny ui site today- hopefully successfully, we'll see in a few days - and helped a colleague do the same. I got up at 4am so 100000000 other ppl wouldn't be trying at same time lol.

        Did day 22 but, ended up using 5lbs for all but curls. Still weak. Added Breath Easy and that was nice.

        Finally told family about Schrodinger's Illness (did not want them as anxious as I have been - was waiting till I started to get better or needed hospital - esp bc dad has huge health issues of his own unrelated to this, step mom has broken leg now, and mom has mental health issues (bipolar) that idk how well she is managing post retirement and they live too far to be helpful and drop me supplies so all they could do is fret) yesterday so had to spend like 3 hrs on phone w parents. This took all my remaining energy so I basically went to bed at 6pm and only crawled out briefly to order sammiches for dinner from local deli.

            Also, this is morbid but it cheered me up in some weird way. Putting in spoilers in case morbid bothers anyone.

            aparently during some past epidemic, NYC temporarily burried ppl in the parks (nicely in rows in coffins, not like in a pile) to be returned to their families for proper burial after. There is some speculation this might be done again, as it is possibility more dignified then current situation (refrigerator trucks). IF this somehow kills me and this happens, I have instructed my husband, family, and old roommate who is executor of my will that nobody is to fucking claim me. Just have them leave me in the park, that would be an awesome place to be burried

              Not only New York. And I really hope it won't get to that. We call them siblings graves as opposed to "pile" or "mass" graves.. what you're talking about is probably not that massive anyway. It's a good temporary solution but I really hope it won't get to that.

                Since I am doing genra switch as my song of the day theme, it seems. Not quite bc this is a reference not a remake but...it includes using folk harmonies in a genre that is def not folk which is something I fucking love. The original, though, is guaranteed to make me absolutely bawl whenever I hear it, no matter what mood I was in to start with (but I don't stay super sad after so that is ok). The new song? I might cry, I might just sing along, but I will feel a bit sader/more whistful when it is over then I did when I started listening, no matter what my base mood was.

                Thank you CODawn and Amirsh

                My mom called ME yesterday. This is the third time, ever, in my life. She called when I had gotten petty about the fact I was the only one calling (like, she won't even call back if I leave a message for her, just waits till I call again) and just stopped (this had been like, a 5+ month gap) then sent her a save the date for my wedding. She called when my grandmother (her mother) died. (Which was better then some of her brothers did, I called my 1st cousin like 5 hrs later to comisserate with her and ended up being the one telling her... so not just my mom sucks w phonecalls on that side.) And she called yesterday, 1 day after I put basically "hey, telling you all now bc I am pretty sure I am out of the woods but I am also pretty fucking sure I have this damn virus" on fb. So, at least I know her criteria for calling me, lol.... I almost didn't pickup phone yesterday bc my 1st thought was "shit someone is dead".

                I am still sick but possibly improving more. Going to see how I feel today with no meds, altho I did go to bed stupidly early last night. But, part of that is the fact my husband and I live in a fucking shoebox, we are both introverts, and I can't go out so we are time shifting a bit. I am always a morning person, he is always a night owl, we are both getting more extreme w these habits which limits the amount of time we are awake together so that we don't annoy the hell out of each other >.>

                I am making some virtual commander deck in mtg bc I found an adorable cat card (and there is a premade for that but meh I like making the up a bit even if premade might be stronger) and am trying to con a friend into playing a rat deck against it just bc funny.

                Today Express tone was leg lifts, so I did Tendon + (w 5lbs) and Breath Easy as well an some stretching to round out time.

                  I'm pretty sure my brother has a cool cat deck for MTG. I haven't yet managed to build a new commander deck, because hubby was getting on my nerves with useless advice (showing someone with my attention span an hour long video about deck building strategy is a bad idea) and then I stopped working on it and got hooked on preparing pen-and-paper RPGs (because I'm the better GM, so he won't try to lecture me) LOL

                    I am so glad to hear you're improving.
                    Family relationships can be funny. Both my dad and Scott said that my relationship with my mom would improve when Scott and I moved out here (1000 miles away from my parents) and it has. Except for the month or so she was boycotting me...lol.

                      sleep_twitch I have a haphazard building method lol... I will just see some cool card, and maybe remember some artifact, and start just throwing things at arkidect. Then I will play it a time or two and see what feels missing. Then MAYBE I will take advice from friend who plays much more on edits/cool cards I might want to add. If I had someone insisting on advice from start I would probably react similarly and just play premade decks/maybe tweak those a bit just bc I love some cards.

                      ((Seriously if you want to play online hit me up lol))

                        Love the Chapman song! I just listened to it twice now--the 1st time because it was the first song you linked to. Then I listened to it again after listening to the P!nk song to fix the mood left behind by the P!nk song. Love me some Tracy C!

                        Well, at least it wasn't that!

                        I used to get frustrated with friends who never reached out to me. I felt like I was doing all the work to maintain the relationship, and that felt exhausting (especially since this is the case with the majority of my friends). Why don't they care enough to reach out to me? I would think. Don't they value our friendship? But some of these friends who are the least likely to ever reach out to me are the ones who are the most appreciative when I reach out to them and are always happy to see/hear from me. It took me a long time to understand and accept that some people are just bad at reaching out. (I have my flaws too, and my friends accept me in spite of them.)

                        So glad your health in continuing to improve, strong 'rin.

                            Ok. 1st, song of the day. One of my favorite bands is basically a "jam band" (James) the lyrics to a song are always the same, and the base of the melody, but the tempo, instruments used, etc might be entirely different each time. From one album to another they might change almost entirely. This is one of my favorite of their songs, altho it is not my favorite version but is close (I have not found THAT version tho since late 90s, and when my ipod shuffle finally died I lost it lol). I sort of love how all of their lyrics basically boil down to "yeah...life is fucking messy. We'll muddle through tho." Seems esp appropriate atm.

                            Did Express Tone w 15lbs to keep fatigue low repped. Had a huge coughing fit after but. I feel I properly worked out. AND I feel properly hungry instead of just like I ought to eat, or that I want something delicious bc I'm bored.

                              Your recovery seems to be going well. I am so happy for you. Yes...boredom eating happens but I am glad your appetite is back.

                                The jam band is cool - they remind me of Bille the Vision and the Dancers from Sweden, which I also love!
