I'm back, I think.  
Well, I guess it's been a few days...a week...okay, so maybe two since I posted anything of significance. It's been....I don't remember if I've ever gone that long on LJ without posting before.

I'll be honest, I just haven't felt up to it. It seems like every other post I make is depressed or sad or whining. And I know we see enough of that sort of thing on the news anymore, and so I just found myself staying away. I haven't even read my f-list, so if any of you have had posts I wouldn't want to miss, please do comment. There's no way I'll be catching up on what is likely to be skip=1000.

So, a brief catch up on the state of Rhien:

~ The diet of doom is almost over! Two days, and I have my doctor's appointment and get to start adding things back in, one at a time.

~ My sister and I had a really good conversation about her pregnancy, how I feel, Mom, and the shower I just can't throw. It all started with a phone call from Mom. I think I need to make some time, and go and see my Mom, and spend some real time with her. A weekend, or something. Apparently my sister tried to talk to her, and tell her how this has to be very 'challenging' and 'hard' and even 'hurtful' for me, and Mom just kept saying things like "She's your sister, and she'll support you no matter what" and ignoring what Rhien!Sis was really trying to say. And then somehow Mom ended up crying, and Rhien!Sis didn't know how or why, exactly, and the conversation sort of stopped. So, in a classic example of the stellar communication my family routinely employs, Mom is just not talking about her feelings in all of this, and somehow feels that ignoring the situation is being supportive of me. I'm honestly baffled, but I think you all are right (imagine that!), and I do need to talk to her.

~ We are almost caught up on BSG! Wow, I am going to be so very sad when this show is done. Very sad. OMG, Chief, what were you thinking??? Boomer can't be trusted! And then when she took down Athena, I was practically yelling at my TV, going "NO, you better not kill Athena, you bitch!" And then when she slept with Helo...wow, you know it's good acting and writing when you're totally sold on how awful and WRONG it is for that to be happening, when Boomer is played by the same actress as Helo's wife, and they look, you know, EXACTLY ALIKE. And Athena waking up enough to see it happen, but unable to do anything. Even if she could have made some noise, or something, Boomer would've had the total advantage on Helo - she could have killed him before he figured out what was really going on.

Listen up, show! Helo and Athena are my OTP! Do NOT mess with them. I know we have only three episodes left, or something, but I want them alive, and happy, and WITH HERA as the happy Agathon family at the end of it all. You hear me??

Ahem. That is all.

Chef, chief, chief. You are so toast. They are going to be looking at how she escaped very soon, and then what are you going to tell them? I do feel bad for you, however.

I totally called that that was Kara's Dad on the piano the second she brought up her father and how he used to play. I have a THEORY. WHAT IF, Kara's Dad is actually that dead cylon model, 7? WHAT IF Kara is like Hera, a human/cylon mix? This is my current theory. I'm still not 100% sure how she ended up resurrecting with a whole new viper, but hey, I'm sure they'll answer that, right?

~ WHOEVER (and I have my suspicions!) sent me THIS and THESE -WOW!! Thank you SO SO MUCH. You made my week, my month, you are totally awesome. :D I was baffled when I got the mail, because I wasn't expecting anything, and they both came on the same day. I opened the necklace first, and I recognized it immediately, of course, because I've had it in my favorites forever. It took me a good minute to realize someone must have bought it for me. And then I was all wibbly and happy and almost cried. Thank you again so much! Then I opened the labradorite, and everyone here, I think, is very familiar with how much I love this stone! I think I might be totally indulgent and make them into a bracelet all for me. :)

So, whoever you are (someone asked for my address a little while back, so I think I know who, but there's always that little bit of room for doubt.) THANK YOU. It was such a surpise, and I absolutely love them both. Please feel free to reveal yourself in comments if you like, so I can thank you properly. :)

A sewing post is likely to come later today. Better get back on the horse, so to speak, now that I'm back.

I'm sure the person who asked for your address only asked it so she could, like. Send you a postcard or something. Which I'm sure she will do if she ever stops being lazy.

In any case, I'm glad you liked them. You deserve something to make you smile, I think your whole flist would agree. And I also think that making yourself something would be a fantastic use of the labradorites.

I love them! And, hmm. So, my guess was not entirely accurate! Ambiguous, and crafty...

A postcard will be totally awesome - I still have the one my Mom sent me of Rome years and years ago. Someday, I will be able to travel. *is wistful* In the meantime, I live vicariously through the posts of my f-list who DO. Or those who just live other places. :D

"Chef, chief, chief. You are so toast."
Can toasters be toast? ;)

And yeah, several of my friends and I have the same theory about Kara and model 7 (Daniel?) being her dad and her being a hybrid. After that episode, I'm about 95% sure that's where they're going with it. :)
