[cancer] Chemo series three, session three, day three

3-3-3. Chemo chemo chemo.

I was unusually active and alert yesterday. I appear to be paying for that this morning, after a short (for chemo) night's sleep. Not miserable, just slower and goofier than normal for this early, even on a chemo day.

S— was over yesterday, helping [info]tillyjane (a/k/a my Mom) and Lisa Costello. Some good practical advice was had, and she worked with [info]the_child to significantly advance the ball on photodocumenting the Bells for Jay project, so I can get a thank you post up soon. [info]the_child had also shot a lot of photos, which no one had told me, so there's a lot of duplicates. There is a pretty full Flickr set up now, though not yet properly annotated.

The Niece was over yesterday as well for quite some time. We enjoyed a Thai dinner (even I had some), and there was lots of this-and-that going on around me. We finished out the evening with a rewatch of My Neighbor Totoroimdb ], which I continue to believe that is hands down the sweetest movie ever made. By the time the movie was done, so was I.

Off the pump around 1 or 1:30 today, then I'll be laying low the rest of the day as usual.

Passim, I also note with some amusement that a good portion of the "I don't/haven't/won't ever use Apple products" comments in my post about closed computing ecosystems yesterday [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] boil down in part to "I don't want to be one of those people" in reaction to Apple marketing and social perceptions of Mac users.

Sort of how I feel about not listening to country music, I guess. Whatever motivates you.
