There's something about a food that moves all by itself that gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Why do trees keep happening? — Eukaryote Writes

Dinner went well. I was especially happy with how the Cornish hens came out—crispy skin and juicy meat. I sent home loads of leftovers with my guests, but I still have so much food. But I’m having a couple of people over on Sunday, so I’m hoping to turn leftovers into something tasty for that dinner.

Well, not where I'm from. But maybe I'm not there anymore

I love seasonal skeletons!

Watching the terrible football but thinking about bailing to get home while still awake. Have leftovers for to, including pie and the last of the historic cranberry sauce that none of us can remember how long ago we made it but we’ve been defrosting and refreshing it for probably 315 years. It’s pretty concentrated. We’ll have to make more next year, mom assured me she has cranberries in the freezer ready to go.

Thrive to spite them

Somehow we got behind ar work so I stayed late with everyone else because I didn't feel that bad I thought. Even though earlier I wanted to leave because I was getting dizzy.

Almost home I got pulled over for speeding & driving erratically. I think I was going 5 mph over the limit but I guess thats still speeding. And the erratic part....I drifted into the side a bit. I got a warning but thr flashing lights did a number on me...I burst into tears and the officer was nice and all but . Then I started gagging and threw up as soon as I got home and I have an insanely bad headache. I really don't want to go to work tomorrow and I feel like I can't call out because it's Black Friday and they have been cracking down on absences and the doctor at the ER wrote I was good to go back to work on Monday and I stayed out until Wed.

I shouldn't have been driving. I don't want to ask M to drive me back and froth from work but I know I shouldn't be driving after working.

I haven't heard anything from workers comp so I need to try and call them tomorrow. I really want to see my Dr or another because I think I should be getting better than I am.

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

Then I started gagging and threw up as soon as I got home and I have an insanely bad headache.

I'm extremely, extremely serious about this: those are VERY serious symptoms after a concussion, and you need to go to the ER. Please have M drive you there NOW. Please.

Oh, askye, those are dangerous symptoms, please do not ignore them!

Woot!

(including shrimp cocktail, so it was a partial Shrimpsgiving),

Woot!

Most definitely not Woot! askye, you should not be working through this concussion. I don't care if they're short staffed and it's Black Friday. You literally have some brain damage and you need to respect it. You shouldn't be driving. You should tell your supervisor you got pulled over for driving erratically and threw up at home. These are serious symptoms.

Retail will survive without you for a few days. You need to take care of yourself. Your injury is documented. Nobody thinks you're slacking.

Right now we are getting gas and going back to the ER I was at ...it's like a 20 min drive. I won't be going to work tomorrow.

I feel ok in the mornings but then get worn out. I'm only looking at the screen to update yall. Once I onow something I'll let yall know.

Please do, askye. Glad you are there.
