news of the me @ 9:17  
I am stuffed with virtue. If I were an olive, my pimiento would be overflowing. Aside from my interlude with Bruce Campbell (Anna: "I'm sorry I'm so sweaty--I just ran here." Bruce: "Not a problem."), I also:

* diligently did lots of work
* had yogurt and fresh fruit for lunch instead of a pastry
* kicked ass in my session with my physical trainer
* shot hoops until the end of time (then time-travelled back here)
* was given a take-out tofu salad by accident instead of chicken and ate it for dinner anyway

Now I'm kind of wiped. I think I need to be one with my couch. Actually, I think I need to call a taxi to take me to my couch....

ETA: You know, the doctor said that the Adderall might kick in on the first dose, so I wonder about today. It would be great if every day I could feel this energized and focused. I'm curious and hopeful to see what the following week will bring.

Yup, stimulants do kick in on the first dose, quite often.

Heee. Yes, I said that. Those were the first words out of my mouth to him. *g* He was a total gentleman and pro, though. I think I'm actually running a risk of getting a bit fangirlish about him.

I think I need an icon of an olive, that reads "my pimiento is overflowing." That may be the best line ever.

Go for it. *g* (And see how you gracefully got me to correct my spelling! Hee.)

"Ah, yes, I'm well known for my subtlety," she said in a tone rather too reminiscent of early Wesley (there may have been thumbs tucked behind imaginary suspenders, even).
Right before she tripped over her own feet and went sprawling.

Ahhh! You are adorable. I give you my Wesley icon.

(You know, how odd is it that we love a character named "Wesley." It's one of the powers of TPTB that they can give characters stupid names and then make us love them. Wesley. Rodney. Mulder. T'ealc. Angel.)

Even more so because I knew a guy in high school named Wesley, and he was the slimiest, most disgusting and obnoxious person I've ever known (which is saying quite a lot). So it was like a reclaiming of the name I most hated.

Now, I have a special fondness for Wesleys everywhere. Except that one.

Oooh, yes me loves the name Wesley. I actually ran into Alexis and Alyson on Oxford Streeet in London and did the alternate fangilr thing of ignoring them and then giving myself neck-ache craning my head to see them walk down the street.

I also like Westley, as in The Princess Bride.

Well done on being an olive - what other party snacks would we be in wonder?

Yay for virtue :)

Indeed! :D

It should kick in on the first dose, yes. Adderall doesn't accumulate in the system, like a lot of anti-depressants do; it cycles out within twenty-four hours, I think (you may find it works for a full ten, which is I think what they say, or not quite that long). Unless you have a different kind of Adderall than the one I'm on.

And here's something that I see as a plus: if you're on Adderall, and you're not acting like you're on speed, then you have a different brain chemistry. Otherwise, you *would* react like someone on speed, to be redundant.

It would be great if every day I could feel this energized and focused.

Sounds like a good day on the meds, yep. *g*

I've been on Adderall for several years now (which I've probably said already), so if there's anything you'd like to talk about, please feel free to e-mail me (lumenara at yahoo.com).
