Sunday is 48 hours long, right?  
There's nothing like sleeping twelve hours to...really make you feel kind of disoriented and hungry.

In random movie observations: Peter MacNicol in Ghostbusters 2 is freaking hysterical. Sometimes cable TV has a moment or two of life in it. Also, the third Friday the 13th movie--the one they did in 3D--is perfect for crap horror watching. I like identifying all the effects that would have originally been in 3D. And of course watching people die.



I went in to my doctor's for a liver function test and it came back normal. I feel incredibly fortunate--like I've made the right decision in *time* for once, instead of too late.

Tuesday will be 30 days sober. I want one of those little AA coins. Apparently in AA, your first day sober, from which you date your ongoing sobriety, is your "birthday." So my "birthday" is April 10.

I haven't felt much like drinking so far. I don't know what to make of that. Did upping my Prozac help, I wonder. Am I just riding a pink cloud for a while--when will it get harder? There's actually a risk when it feels too easy, because then you think: Hey, I can do this. And if I can do *this*, I can manage my drinking...once a week, only on Fridays... Etc. Which is where, previously, it's gone awry. So I need to watch for that impulse, among other things.

These people doing the Pepto-Bismol dance on my TV are creepy. It's important that you know this!

That is all.

Thank you! *g*

Tomorrow? I meant Tuesday...

Peter MacNicol in Ghostbusters 2 is freaking hysterical.

It's a little disturbing for me to watch Numb3rs now, as I keep hearing, "Vy am I drippings vis goo?" *g*

Tuesday will be 30 days sober.

Congratulations! I have a tremendous amount of respect for you; I've had two exes who were alcholics (one who's still drinking and denying almost two decades later, and one sober for six years at the time we met) and so I've seen up close and personal how difficult it is to accept it as a lifelong problem and to stay sober.

Thank you. :) It took me the longest time to clue up that it would be a lifetime thing. That's the hardest hurdle to get over, I think.

Congratulations for the 30 days! I have lots of respect for anyone who manage to pull themselves out of an addiction. I'm struggling to overcome a food addiction, and I'm still far from being able to stay "sober". So: respect!
Anna S.eliade on May 8th, 2005 11:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I totally understand food addiction too--and it's so sad. We *need* food, like air. It's so wrong that there should ever be an addiction problem. I think our metabolisms should adjust whenever we eat more.

May I also submit Jason X for bad horror watching? I saw it on, I think, TMC and watched just because it had two Andromeda cast members. I spent the first twenty minutes trying to figure out how this fit into the Jason chronology, because they're on a space station in the future. I spent the next hour staring blankly because the whole thing made no sense. There was also a holodeck, on which they recreated a summer camp/forest. It was boggling.
Anna S.eliade on May 8th, 2005 11:23 pm (UTC)
I have a bad, sad appreciation for Jason X. *g* I love Lisa Ryder in it as the kick-ass android, and the holodeck thing was pretty funny.

**applauds you** 30 days sober -- that's fantastic.

Also, it'd be cool if AA (and every time I type that I want to add the third "A", but I don't know what the Automobile Association of America would think about that) -- but if AA gave you the keepsake coin and a bag of chocolate coins. Because who doesn't like chocolate coins?
Anna S.eliade on May 8th, 2005 11:33 pm (UTC)
Chocolate coins...ahhhh, yeah. And maybe some toffee chocolate-chip cookies.

i loved, and watched, "Chicago Hope" for some time just because of my mad love for Peter MacNichol, even though I had not seen Ghostbusters 2 and didn't for years.

When "Chicago Hope" got rid of his character, I said "Fuck you, Chicago Hope, you are dead to me now." And I never did watch another episode.
Anna S.eliade on May 8th, 2005 11:34 pm (UTC)
He was pretty funny on Ally "Too Thin to Live" McBeal, too. What I watched of it. :)
Kasskassrachel on May 8th, 2005 09:51 pm (UTC)
Thirty days! w00t! That's absolutely fucking fantastic.

I shower you with rosepetals. :-)
Anna S.eliade on May 8th, 2005 11:34 pm (UTC)
Thank you, sweetie! Can I eat the rose petals? :D

The monthiversary thing? Tremendous. Congratulations!
Anna S.eliade on May 9th, 2005 01:15 am (UTC)
Thank you. And your icon...guh. Whoa. Guh. *squeak*

And now that I've made those noises, I'll be in my bunk.

I just realized I feel much the same about carbs as you do about drinking ... I mean, my doctor's told me the scary facts (headed for diabetes if I don't watch it) and it's just not quite enough, sometimes. Like tonight, when my mother had KFC, with the biscuits, and the mashed potatoes ... sigh. Now I feel all yucky and guilty, too.

Didn't mean to rain on your parade, though -- congrats on 30 days! That's really great. I hope you stay on your pink cloud a long while.

::hug::
Anna S.eliade on May 9th, 2005 01:17 am (UTC)
No worries--you didn't rain. :) Carbs are a challenge for me too. What is life without an occasional piece of cheesecake? Is there life after cheesecake?

*ponders*

30 days! ::hunts down people with an axe in some spooky old house to celebrate::

I thought you'd like that. :0)

Seriously, grab the toffee chocolate chip cookie AA coin and run with it. I hope they're giving you a big swack of support there. I know how a bunch of people saying "Congrats! You're a freaking wonder!" might make a person wobble until they tip, so maybe I'll just say, "May the Force be with you."
ex_dovil323 on May 9th, 2005 08:01 am (UTC)
I go Yay!, I go Woooo!, I do the dance of the healthy sober liver.

Impressed by your thirty days. That's something that looks really fucking hard from the outside.
sanguesangueuk on May 9th, 2005 01:14 pm (UTC)
well done on the 30 days - and yay for you and your liver!
Pamgoosegirl9 on May 9th, 2005 03:59 pm (UTC)
The not drinking and the normal liver - this is good news. Happy birthday (late) and many, many more. :hugs:
