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.

Thai food went down well. I'm still craving savory, though my spicy tolerance is dropping rapidly.

My wife picked up an interest in country music when she went to college. I feel compelled to poke gentle fun at it to maintain my cultural heritage, but in actuality it grows on you and I enjoy a lot of it. I've always liked songs/ballads that tell stories and there's no shortage of that.

Not that I could every admit liking it in polite company, or worse, in public. So don't tell anyone.

Last night's Halloween party included a FAB Totoro costume. I saw a mess of pics of it being made and then wandering around DragonCon recently, but cannot find 'em on Flickr. Here's a link to a pic of the SteamPunk'd version from one chunk o' DC2012: HERE. Wowzie! Okay, some video of Totoro from DragonCon 2012, too. ;-)
