So not! So do! So don't!

.... THE HELL?!? On Tues/Wed, it's supposed to be OVER A HUNDRED DEGREES? Oy. Shoot me now. I really need to invest in a fan or something. Granted, I'll be sleeping during the hottest time of the day, but STILL.

Things you may not know about me:

- I am a WOMAN. For some reason, in comments to people, I really think that people think I'm some guy named Bob because of my screen name. No, I assure you, I'm 100% female. My first name is Aubrey, it's a play off of that. I have never gone by the name Bob evur.

- I'm 5'6 or 5'7 ish, 224 lbs, short dark hair, which is starting to go grey. Erm, white. Shiny silver? Oy. I'm going to look like I belong in Sloan soon. I stopped dying my hair for some reason, and cut off all the colored parts. I had red hair most of my adult life.

- I wear glasses, and desperately need new ones - I've been looking through these goggles for 4 1/2 years now, so I can't see shit. I always feel silly telling people "Hold on! I can't see, I have my glasses on!" (I see better with contacts, but EFFORT!!! is involved.)

- I'm allergic to metal. Yes, I have tried sterling silver, hypoallergenic crap, surgical steel, etc. I'm just allergic to metal. The only metal I've found that doesn't make me break out within five minutes of touching it is the metal in my fillings. Everything else, it BUUUURNS ME!

- I have three fillings - both shallow enough to get done without any shots or pain killers of any kind. I was more afraid of the giant needles than I was of the pain. I was.. sixteenish when I got them.

- I have scoliosis - but these days, who doesn't? All but three vertebrae of my spine is TWISTED, literally, and curved into a slight backwards 's' shape - the curve of the 's' pinches nerves between my spine and right shoulder blade at times.

- I wear a size 7 wide shoe, or a 7 1/2 regular.

- I never match my socks. My only request is that they are around the same thickness and length.

- I'm a vegetarian. Ovo/lacto, fer certain, though I've been trying to eat less of those, too. Oddly, the only things I've missed is pork products - namely ham and bacon. BACON!

- I've had two surgeries: one on my right wrist for carpal tunnel syndrome at age 17, the other for a deviated septum.

- I have almost pristine credit, except for a stupid Jeep I haven't owned in four years. I really need to see someone about that - I just got another letter in the mail saying that starting with my very next check, 25% of my pay will belong to them. The amount I owed them went from $23,000 something the last time they garnished me, to $24,000 something, only four months later. The hell?!? What I originally owed them was only $15,000, the jerks, and I only MAKE $12,000 a year. (Well, as of last year - this year will be more because of working more, schooling less, and such.)

I'm sure there's lots of other things that you don't know about me, but I really want to go to bed. (I work graveyards!! Noon is my bedtime!)

Any questions?

I have a deviated septum and narrow nasal passages... coupled with chronically enlarged tonsils (and years of suffering with tonsillitis), I get sore throats and headahces cuz I can't breathe well. I was hoping that now that I have a decent doc, that I'd get my nose or tonsils taken care of... but after reading that link... FUCK NO! NO ONE IS TOUCHING MY NOSE! *whimper*

It wasn't as bad as it seemed, though I'm getting sinus infections again, they're not nearly as bad as the ones I got before my surgery. (I hear that septums redeviate or somesuch over time.)

And, compared to hearing stories of blood vomiting after tonsil surgery....

It was 118 degrees out yesterday, and 116 the day before that.

The room my computer has been placed in here at the new house is the one room in the house David's parents refuse to air condition - it's not economical because the room's so big.

Hot. Hot hot hot. Hot. Hoooootttttttttt...

I moved to Las Vegas at the worst time, methinks..

I have scoliosis - but these days, who doesn't?

Me?

Hey, about the glasses. I'll tell you next time one of the Indians I work with heads "home" - if you fax me a prescription they can take it with them and get them ground for you for like...$6. I'm pretty sure that covers frames too.

God bless socialized health care.

If you watch, the "exam" its self usually doesn't cost that much.

Seriously. I'll check with the "Real Tamil" and see if he knows anyone headed back soon.

Re: Metal Allergy
I have to ask...as someone with some pretty bad metal allergies (even surgical steel does it sometimes), have you tried titanium? It's supposedly the most hypo-allergic metal we have currently.

My tragus and belly piercing are only titanium studs. Won't wear anything else there at all.

I just got over an ear/neck infection because of a stupid metal reaction. Argh.
