My fasting blood sugar, right around when I was diagnosed, was 146. It's not horrible, and I was only borderline. But now? Well.

I just took my blood sugar now, after eating lunch about 2.5 hours ago, and it was 114. 114!!

And I've lost at least 15lbs total so far. So hurray! I am pleased!

Me: *In elevator*
Coworker: *Gets in elevator*
Me: Good morning!
Coworker: Oh, look, I wanna show you! *Pulls out phone and shoves it in my face. There is a giant picture of Ten on it* He's my favorite Doctor!
Other Coworker In Elevator: Oh! My son watches that show religiously! I used to watch it, decades ago!
Coworker: Did they used to have a character like Jack back then?
Me: *In my head* I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry.

Because sometimes, I feel like a Cyberman. "You are compatible. You will be upgraded. Watch Doctor Who." *Stomps away* ("Because sometimes, I feel like a Cyberman" sounds like a line in a really awesome horrible rap.)

Also, I feel like I'm turning my office into a Doctor Who convention. This is what happens, I guess. Will all the actors and writers and everyone come hang out in my office if I give them fancy badges to wear? (I totally just typed "badgers," too. Yes. Give them badgers. This will entice them!)

I am clearly insane and over-caffeinated. Don't mind me! :D

Your job is now your Time Lord name. The last digit of your phone number is the current regeneration you are in. The nearest clothing item to your right is now the most notable item in your current wardrobe. The last person you texted is your current companion. Your favorite word is now your catchphrase.

I'm the Coordinator! *Giggles madly* In my...6th regeneration. Or 8th if you count my home phone. Or 9th if you count my work number. Let's go with 6th. Apparently, the most notable item of clothing in my current wardrobe: These slippers, in black. I am a Time Lord who does more lounging than running, I guess. They're cozy![livejournal.com profile] analineblue is my companion! (And lucky, too - it was almost my coworker). I don't know what my favorite word is, though! I've been using "indubitably" a lot, lately, so let's go with that for now.

Hee! That was fun! Work, soon. Thank goodness it's a short week. :-/ Gah.
sariagray: (TW: Owen Drowning)
I don't know why it feels like it's been so long since I've updated. It hasn't been. But here I am.

I also wanted to thank you all for your prompts! I managed to write something tonight! YAY. It's been really hard to sit down and get words out; every time I do, I end up updating my food journal or researching recipes.

Speaking of - I've lost ten pounds in the past 10 days. This is Very Exciting News. The diet has been going well, too. I've not yet deviated and I'm keeping track of everything I put in my mouth. It's funny - I'm more obsessed with food now than I ever have been. Oh well. And I'm taking SO MANY vitamins. I take 6 different vitamins/supplements a day. In any case, I've been much more energetic the past couple of days. Let's hope this lasts.

And I'm having fun with it. I went on a cooking spree yesterday, so I have plenty of food to last me through the week. Three different flavor chicken breasts, sauteed kale, roasted Brussels sprouts, vegan chili, and these lentil cakes that I adapted from this recipe with stuff I had on hand. As I had lentils, kale, and sweet potatoes, though, that wasn't too hard. They came out pretty well! I think I might try them on a wrap at some point, with hummus and a bit of lettuce.

Anyway. Enough about food, even if it's all I can think about now! So. Uh. That concludes this entry? ;)

Also, go check out [livejournal.com profile] redisourcolor for the latest challenge. :D

Not that I intend for this to turn into some diet blog, but...well, I'm going to ramble a bit about food. Feel free to completely bypass this entry if the topic of food does not sound very exciting.

In Which You Find Out What I'm Eating )
sariagray: (TW: Ianto WTF)
So. In addition to everything else, I just got my test results back from the doctor. High cholesterol (which runs in the family), diabetes a strong likelihood (also runs in the family), and scarily low vitamin D (Vitamin D? What am I, ten!?) So I apparently am not allowed to eat anything with sugar or carbs, and must stick to low/no fat or cholesterol. I will be eating lettuce.

(It's really not so drastic, but...seriously? CAN I PLEASE CATCH A BREAK SOON!?)

*Stops complaining*

How is everyone else?
sariagray: (TW: John Hart Gun)
I've decided to start my own urban legend. I'm hoping it catches on and becomes a Halloween tradition.

Better be careful! )
sariagray: (VG: Brian Umbrella)
Happy Halloween, everyone!

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] toshiani007, [livejournal.com profile] chamilet, and [livejournal.com profile] miss_bekahrose for the pumpkin and spiders!

And now, I will get ready for...cavity fillings! Yay. Seriously, every time I turn around, someone wants more money from me. :-/

Found Jack's theme song. *Snort*

Under cut because...well. )

Basically, I was watching Countrycide to work on this fic, and I just...kept humming this song to myself. And then I played it while watching the Tractor Scene. It amused me.

So, I knew things were bad. Or, "not good," at any rate. Since the economy tanked, and my mother lost her job due to blindness and my father gave up his business because people would rather buy food than antiques, we've struggled. I haven't been great about helping, either, obviously. I feel guilty for everything I've bought/spent money on. I feel like such an ass. :-/

In any case, what I'm getting at is that I just found out that we got a foreclosure notice. So. Uh. That's a thing that I need to take care of. Hopefully, we can renegotiate the mortgage, and I can give my family money every month, and we can make it through this. But otherwise, we need to pay $78,000. Which is...uh, $77,999 more than I have right now. *Waves dollar bill like a white flag*

This wasn't entirely unexpected, of course, but...it's still a bit of a shock. I hope we can fix this.

(And I also promise not to bore you all with misery!posts...this is the first and last. I just needed to...vent, I guess.)
sariagray: (TW: Jack Ianto TTLM)
So, as I've said before, I listened to Department X on the way home from California. And, while I still have no idea what was going on in terms of plot, I really liked the interactions between Jack and Ianto (and I never much pay attention to plot, anyway). Wanna know why? Probably not. But just in case you do, read on!

Length and Spoilers )
sariagray: (FF: Inara and Kaylee)
Well then. I am awake at...4am.

Which is really 1am, but not. Huh.

Can someone please write me a really well-written plausible, plotty, domestic Jack/Ianto mpreg story that's fully in character and has a happy ending?

I know the fandom has a handful (or less than) that meet that criteria, and I'm pretty sure I've read them all. Is this...a practically non-existent thing? I think it must be.

Why do I always want things that are so hard to find!? And to feel all warm and cozy. And what is with me and babies lately!? *Worried*
sariagray: (TW: John Hart Gun)
Oddly (and unlike 99.9% of the population), even though I watched the first handful of seasons of Buffy and all of Angel before seeing Torchwood, James Marsters will be John Hart to me first, and Spike second.

Which makes finally picking up Buffy where I left off (end of season 4) absolutely hilarious. And I swear...UNIT? The Initiative? THE SAME THING, OKAY?

Also, I have a headache. Also, I'm already packing for Friday and freaking out about security and the like. Also, I'm going to bed.

So I'm finally watching Part 1 of The Deathly Hallows, yeah? Not very far in yet. BUT. Luna Lovegood's father's got this pendant.

Spoilers for things )
sariagray: (VG: Pop Idol Oscar Wilde)
I am so confused about the finale of Doctor Who. SO CONFUSED. I don't even know what's going on anymore. I miss things like, you know, the other season finales. Not that I didn't enjoy this, because I did, but...yeah.

Spoilers! )

In other news, OMG, you guys, in less than two weeks I will be FLYING. For the first time! Well, not quite. I've flown in single-engine Cessna planes, and even a WWI bright red open-cockpit biplane, but not a jet. (Because I like to be different, okay?!) Not across the country, either. For a weekend (because I take many an impossible weekend trip). I AM SO EXCITED. Because I get to finally meet [livejournal.com profile] analineblue! And she will no longer be a person who exists solely on LJ and Facebook and my email. *Flails*

So that's an exciting thing! I've never been further west than, er...Chicago. Apparently, I have an "Annual Autumn Fandom Sojourn" thing happening, or something. The only downfall is that James Marsters will be approximately an hour from my house, and I will be across the country. Darn.

I'm also reading! Like, a real book? Which I haven't done in ages. I've picked up a copy of The Mermaid Chair. It's interesting so far! I like it. It has given me an undeniable craving to head to Mystic, though, so I might have to do that at some point! Like...tomorrow. If I can find someone to drag along, I may do this. I missed going there this summer.

And that...is that!
sariagray: (Gwen Sad)
So I decided that I should be healthy! I made All The Doctor's Appointments for the first time in four years (YAY, Health Insurance!) and then I went to the grocery store to buy healthy foods to eat. You know, so I don't order takeout all the time. Especially at work.

I buy all of these great things to bring to work - hummus, and salad stuff, and light wheat bread, and turkey, and yogurt, etc. Then I get home and realize that I spent too much time shopping AND I bought absolutely nothing to eat for dinner, so I ordered a pizza. A bacon pizza.

It was delicious.

LOL @ Mood Icon. JACK'S FACE. "Jack knows you ate that pizza! Jack is disappointed in you!" It makes me feel even worse.

ETA: The mood icon to my previous entry is Gwen delivering pizza to Ianto. It's a whole epic tale of tragedy!

(Not really that major.) Having reached a perfect stopping point with our [livejournal.com profile] ianto_bigbang (it's been beta'd, tidied, and submitted to the mods with a summary for their esteemed checking!), we...well, we stopped. Which is, I suppose, what one does when a stopping point is reached. ;)
