Soooooo I've talked about this ridiculous modified* ketogenic diet that I'm doing, and how much it's helped with my inflammation and chronic pain issues. And it has, a LOT.

I've also talked about how I'm not actually doing it for weight loss, but that's a side effect I'll happily take.

Today I pulled some things out of the depths of the closets. I'm not gonna lie, being able to fit back into a couple of the bat wing hem overdresses that the Infamous BlueJay made me is fantastic.

*Modified because I have not actually started tracking my macro nutrients yet, I've just been eyeballing it. (I figure if I'm eating more fat than protein, and as few carbs as possible, I'm doing okay, and my results so far seem to support that.) I have to look into the various tracking apps and make sure that calorie counting is optional on them. Counting calories is a fast track to Crazytown for me.

Last night included insomnia AND non-stop nightmares.

I had a 7am meeting this morning.

I went back to bed after the meeting was done, had trouble falling back asleep, and then had more nightmares when I finally did fall asleep.

But I've had tea and coffee, I'm about to have lunch, the Stroppy One keeps checking on me to make sure I'm doing okay, and an anon on Tumblr sent me a super sweet and kind message. (Which made me tear up, because I am fragile right now.)

I hope all of you are doing okay. We'll all get through this.

BRAIN RACCOONS: Hey, let's feel mumphish and low!

ME: ... why?

BRAIN RACCOONS: 'cos? C'mon, we're going to do this!

ME: But things are going well. There's exciting things coming up! Work is good! THERE IS NO REASON TO FEEL LIKE THIS.



I'll be fine, this mood will pass. But right now, the Brain Raccoons are having an ennui party.
I looked at the current "official" LJ prompt for post ideas, then shuddered.

Open Letter
Do you have something you've always wanted to tell someone but never had the chance to say? Use this post to write an open letter to someone and finally tell them what you've always wanted them to know.

Shuddered because yes, I immediately thought of who I would address that letter to, and ... no. Just no. My telling them what I think they should know wouldn't make a difference, and I don't want to have any communication with them ever again.

There's also the idea of writing an open letter to Mom, but that wouldn't do anything but make me sad.

Um, happier things, happier things ... hey, BPAL is officially doing perfumes and mementos for Crimson Peak! I am so excited for the BPAL folks, AND I am so excited to smell these creations. Yes, I am at the point where I want Crimson Peak -themed everything. This should not be a surprise to anyone.

Other stuff:

- Work is good, and on the downswing of crazy right now. THANK GOODNESS.
- I miss Disneyland and my SoCal peeps a lot right now.
- I want someone to throw a fancy nighttime garden party that I can attend.
- All I want to do right now is lay on a velvet fainting couch, eat tasty snacks, drink some absinthe, and read trashy gothic novels. I DO NOT FEEL LIKE BEING PRODUCTIVE. Pity there's all this stuff I need to do.

Dear brain, listening to "Disloyal Order Of Water Buffalos" on repeat is fun, but probably says something slightly worrying about our current mood.

::puts on all the FOB, because if I'm going for a crazycakes day, I might as well go big::

Last night was ... bad. For assorted reasons. As a result there was NO WAY liquid liner was an option this morning, which meant some fiddling with sparkly red-black eye shadow to make my eyes look less swollen.

Tonight: round 1 of Goth Upkeep (bleach and pink dye), and probably some Beetlejuice cartoons.
