Happy $holiday to all

Myself, and all the inhabitants of Innsmouth and Y'ha-nthlei wish everyone a happy Winter Tide. Be social, be solitary, be squamous, and here's to all of us nuts having a better time of things. *raises a Shoggoth's Olde Peculiar in salute*

Job News

Sudden realization...remember that job foo I played close to my vest? I never actually said what the news was. New company that bought Carcosa Corp, and didn't bring me on in August, is bringing me on end of December. Same title, same basic benefits and salary, probably more work, but I keep working with the same bunch of yabbos that I enjoy. Even if some of them make me want to LART. Sorry that I forgot, I've been wanting offer in hand before I said anything...but such things don't really exist anymore, and I'm a forgetful fox.

Also, if I have already posted this...err, echo? (again, forgetful fox)

Medical News

Going to start this off with the news. Unless my blood work comes back with something really oddball, I'm officially a diabetic. Over the last month or so I've been feeling I number of classic symptoms, thirst, unexpected weight loss without changing things, increased appetite, etc. So I went to the doc in the box today, and after some fun and games with getting my blood drawn, the blood stick says I have high blood sugar. Way high. So, the plan for now is to treat with meds, adjust my diet and activity levels, monitor my sugar levels for a month, then see where I am.

In real life terms what does this mean? Well cutting out my Code Red addiction, plus pretty much any other soft drinks. (I hate the taste of artificial sweeteners in soda, so diet is probably not going to be an option). Also, I need to shift my general diet over. Given I live on a pasta, this also will be tricky as heck. I'll also need to start exercising. Which should also be a bit of a trick. Oh well, I've needed to make a change, and this should be good inspiration.

So, that's what's new here in Vulpine land. Wish me luck and willpower, I'm going to need it.

Survived Dental Surgery

Had the extractions this morning. Sedation dentistry is my friend, I blinked and I went from getting wired up, to getting ready to leave. Eating a ton of soft food, pudding, jello, and yogurt. Wanting sushi, Italian food and gyros. None of which are a good choice right now. In some discomfort/pain, but not bad. Not feeling too loopy from the sedation either, but avoiding pushing that in any form or fashion. Plan is to work from home tomorrow, and possibly Friday. Now lets hope I heal quickly and without issue.
