grr!  
Okay, being awake still at 5:30 am while taking sleeping pills? Is not fair.

(I also object to the odd connection between a fatigue disorder, wtf and insomnia on the whole, but, well, you know.)

Clearly, there is only one thing for it! Bitching about it on the internet!

Instead of the usual Dramatic Desperate Flailing that accompanies Latenight Insomnia With Little Red, I will give a reader's digest update of recent events:

1) I have been totally ignoring you! I'm sorry. I actually have no excuse, as we have internet up, I just got behind during the dramatic days of moving and ever since have been having strange nightmares of my flist avalanching down on top of me if I make any sudden moves towards it like a giant stack of Jenga blocks or something. If I had to make up some excuses, though, I could say things like "I haven't watched Atlantis yet and am deathly afraid of spoilers!" or "I don't have a desk yet!" both of which are true. I might not get caught up, but I will clock back in eventually. Until then, please let me know if you'd like me to pay attention to you and/or read any specific posts. :)

2) We are moved in to Fort Awesome! We have furniture and a Christmas tree and it is really, really nice.

3) mouse!Lizzie is pregnant. w0lfstar fears that mouse!John is pregnant as well, which makes our house THE WORST BADFIC EVER (contains multiple-births and mpreg and characters being turned into cute fuzzy animals!).

4) At this point, I am kind of skipping Christmas. Which is very very weird for me, because it is THE BEST HOLIDAY EVER! and such and I still believe in Santa Claus and am one of those people who listens to the Frank Sinatra Christmas Album in the middle of July. However, I left my Frank Sinatra Christmas Album at home by accident. I also left MY FAMILY at home, and am trying not to be a baby about having to spend my first-ever Christmas without said family, for plane flights around the holidays are a million dollars. Also, I just completed a major move and am feeling sick and have no gifts for anyone (yet) and am in a strange city so it's harder for me to find gifts and it's too late to mail them, etc, etc. Again, like the Jenga blocks, I'm afraid that if I touch Christmas at all, I'll become horribly distraught about how I haven't made a million little wrapped things for people yet and am not home singing In The Bleak Midwinter around the grand piano, etc. Sheryl's family is AWESOME and invited me to spend Christmas with them, but I feel really strange about it in a way I can't explain (because they really don't seem to mind, so it really is all in my head). Also, I'm just really tired. I pushed myself hard all month and the CFIDS is flaring up in response, etc, blah, so I'm feeling a bit like I'd like to hide in my brand-new closet for the next few months until things settle down. However, I received present gleee in the mail from sakuracorr, which is now sitting all wrapped and pretty under our Christmas tree, and I ordered the Muppet Christmas Carol from Amazon, so perhaps I will just postpone Christmas cheer until I can handle it instead of cancelling it all together.

5) In typical [insert-city-here]-House-Of-Couch fashion, my DVDs are brainwashing my roommates. Sheryl is inhaling Babylon 5. She has watched the first season and the first disc of season 2, and likes it muchly, and insists that Sinclair and Ivanova are her OTP of the series. I have no idea what to do with that. I have even less idea what to do with the fact that, once or twice, she actually seems to be right about that possible pairing, and the fact that I sort of want to explore this in angsty fanfic. However, my Sinclair/Sakai 4eva love keeps me from straying too far. I am also gnawing my fingers off in vain attempts not to spoil her. Unfortunately, she knows me too well, and can intuit how long a character stays on the series by how much I squeee when they show up.

6:15 am! I will now put off wishing for death by cleaning my room.
 
 
feel: coldomg my room is cold
hear: heart goes *whirrrr!*

I tried my best to go small and lessen the guilt for you! :)
Little Red: trek - kes sees - 50thousandtearzmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:30 pm (UTC)
I really really appreciate that! Less guilt is best gift ever! I still haven't opened it. It is gleeeful torture. *loves days before Christmas*

Perhaps I will arbitrarily declare a Christmas for later in the year. Hrm. CHRISTMAS IN APRIL, EVERYONE! ;)
Bitch-extraordinaire!sakuracorr on December 20th, 2005 02:31 pm (UTC)
Not April! Easter will hate you! Pick a month that is sad about not having a holiday, like umm... May?
Little Red: LC - naughty idea - _toiletseatgirlmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:34 pm (UTC)
I am confused. Is Easter in April or March? I can never remember. I have trouble with holidays that don't stay put.

March 1st is probably pretty safe for me to declare a Christmas, don't you think?
Bitch-extraordinaire!sakuracorr on December 20th, 2005 02:38 pm (UTC)
March 1st is good, for Easter is either late March or early April! Though I will be thinking about St. Paddy's :P
Little Red: LC - naughty idea - _toiletseatgirlmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:40 pm (UTC)
Then I will send you a GREEN Non-Christmas present. :-P

I have visions of you in the future being one of those people with those fabric flags hanging in front of your house, and you putting a new one up for every holiday there is...

I must think of things that, as a knitter, I can give people at a time that is not the beginning of winter!
Bitch-extraordinaire!sakuracorr on December 20th, 2005 02:44 pm (UTC)
Really, I don't. Though I see myself having stuff inside that goes to each holiday! :D *sees herself not living in a house*
I'm not very interestingastropoet on December 20th, 2005 02:27 pm (UTC)
How can you resist not spoiling Sheryl? It must be so hard!

Please look after yourself, just take it easy and allow your mind and body to re-adjust to all the upheaval. Don't worry about your flist, they will understand and if they don't I'll go and sort them out!

It's also dark and dingy time of year, not good for energy-getting...

Just sit back and receive the love this year, it's due to you - karma you know?
Little Red: b5 - talia pretty lie - thatfangirlmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:33 pm (UTC)
IT IS SO HARD! OMG. I don't think I'm totally succeeding, either. That, or she's just really good at all this stuff. Plus, B5 is a bit heavy-handed sometimes, so she tends to pick out the Big Evil Bad Guys within about thirty seconds.

It has been blessedly clear here compared to normal in the Pacific Northwest, or so I am told. SO NICE to at least get a little sun, if very little in the way of snow.

I have a lovely friendslist who are very very understanding of me!! I am mostblessed, yay. However, I still feel a bit guilty. And also just sad to miss out on all the fun. :)

*bigmanysuperhugehugs*

postponing things till you can handle them sounds like a good idea. and seriously, don't worry about getting people gifts. it's supposed to be fun, and if its notfun then it takes out the whole purpose.

YEY FOR BADFIC!MICE! :D
Little Red: b5 - all alone in the night - thatfangirmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:38 pm (UTC)
I will declare a Christmas later on (and a Hannukah!). It is my plan. ;) And next year, I will get to celebrate it in style, and hopefully with my family.
רותם שחר (Ro): doggett and reyesroothekittykat on December 20th, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC)
yey!

did you get my card?
or my package??

:)
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:41 pm (UTC)
OMG! Not yet! But it has been snowy and icy and I have not yet gotten to the mailbox for I am LAZY OMG. Tomorrow I will go check! :)
רותם שחר (Ro): joyroothekittykat on December 20th, 2005 02:43 pm (UTC)
SNOW!!
*wants*

hehee, okidokies! cause it should have either gotten there yesterday or today based on other people getting things...

(and inside it's all wrapped so you can open the envelope without actually opening the gift if you want to wait on opening it -- I personally don't care when you open it, you can open it as soon as you get it or wait as long as you'd like as long as you get it and let me know whenever you decide to open it! LoL:)
Little Redmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:53 pm (UTC)
Yay!! I will open the envelope then and put the gift under the TREEE. It will be special. :)

And the snow here is odd. The whole city shut down for less than half an inch, because it gets all icy once it hits the roads. But I was very excited to see any snow at all!

Your icon is so great. :)

And omg, I thought it was seasonal and said "Joy to the world" but it actually doesn't! It is still great, though.
רותם שחר (Ro): danceroothekittykat on December 20th, 2005 02:56 pm (UTC)
yey! :)

snow...*wants* LoL :) no snow for Ro. no snow in Florida. boo.

hehe, thanks :D

LOL, nope, the closest thing to a seasonal icon that I have right now is my default icon cause it has a dreidel on it. though, I really need to make myself some Chanukah icons before Chanukah...might should do that today.
A.j.: hugsaj on December 20th, 2005 02:49 pm (UTC)
OMG, email me your address! I have... er.. things for you! And we have to plan a Long Goodbye watching! If I schedule it with you, there's a 40% chance of it happening!
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:51 pm (UTC)
OMG yay address! Right! I will email. :)

*coughs*

Ahem!

i think you'll find that my Mouse!Carson might have been pregnant with Mouse!Rodney's babiez eariler this year...

...turns out that Mouse!Carson was just very fat, but that's not the point!
Little Red: LC - thwap! - followtomorrowmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 02:58 pm (UTC)
Your badfic wins0rz, omg! However, we did switch John and Lizzie's names in order to avoid mpreg at one point, and now we fear that they are both pregnant, so it was all for naught. As long as they are not ALL knocked up, aiieeee, or we will be up to our eyeballs in mice!

I LOVE YOUR ICON, OMG YAY!
georgie: Pinkygeorgierae on December 20th, 2005 03:04 pm (UTC)
YAY! I did actually say that Carson was an ok for a pregnant mouse tho & that there was nho way i was going to change their names around & call the not-actually-female one Rodina (which is what mother suggested) - mainly cos of the omgwtf factor, & plus Rodney actually does look like Rodney! ;)

and ohnoes! (lets just hope one or both is just fat!)

and isn't it great? jacksrubberduck made it for me (...tho *why* she thinks that i'm the Pinky to her Brain, i have *no* idea!)

Pooh: SGA - Sparky hug (by fifmeister)mspooh on December 20th, 2005 03:18 pm (UTC)
Badfic! I already told Sheryl it needs to be written down for posterity. And didn't you clean like just the other day? I almost have this urge to fly you out here so you can clean my place, too. LOL. And omg, take care of yourself first! *snuggles*
Little Red: potential - jacksrubberduckmylittleredgirl on December 20th, 2005 03:25 pm (UTC)
Hee! Yes, she claimed it and will write it. :) Better she do it -- I'd try too hard to make it make sense.

Er, yes. I did just clean the other day. Which probably makes my urge to vacuum the whole house while Sheryl is out at a doctor's appointment tomorrow a bit silly. HOWEVER, my room still has stuff on the floor because I lack a desk and that sort of stalled the unpacking, so now I am picking at it since it is now SEVEN THIRTY and I am yet to fall asleep. (It's probably silly that I'm blaming the sleeping pills for that. BUT STILL!)

Hey, I'll totally clean randomly if people ask me to!
Pooh: Mac - crafty (by meegzi31)mspooh on December 20th, 2005 03:50 pm (UTC)
Now I have this incredible urge to come over and build you a desk... Not that I'm trying to find any excuse to avoid certain people at the family Christmas party, except I totally am.
Your *Mom*'s A Cylon!: me once moreastrum_presul on December 20th, 2005 04:56 pm (UTC)
*waves for she is glad to see you but is sick and does not want to get too close*

If it makes you feel any better, I don't feel ignored at all. I'm having to ignore a lot of people intentionally because they're posting spoilers and stuff, and otherwise having jsut finished finals, I'm too tired to waste my entire day online. You gotta do what you gotta do... besides, I'd email ya if there was something superduper!omg!uberimportant happening.

So *mind!snuggles* hehe they're like real ones, only in the mind.

Fine. Make me spit water all over my desk which I just finished cleaning! ;)

And for your belated Christmas celebrating, a poem by Shel Silverstein:

No one's hanging stockings up
no one's baking pie
no one's looking up to see
a new star in the sky.
No one's talking brotherhood,
and no one's giving gifts,
and no one loves a Christmas tree
on March the twenty-fifth.

Wait, I though LizzieMouse and JohnMouse were both female. How'd they get pregnant then?

Dude
I owe you a phone call that lasts more than five minutes. Soon...
I'm sorry to hear that you're illin again. Take care of yourself chiquita.
MegTDJ: Sam/Teal'c Hug - thefakeheadlinemeg_tdj on December 20th, 2005 07:56 pm (UTC)
Aww, I'm sorry you're feeling rotten. *huggles*

I've got a question for you - I was out shopping yesterday, and I tried looking for something to send you but couldn't think what to get! Do you have any requests? Something that might cheer you up just a little? (And please don't just say "anything" or "nothing", because that is sooooo not helpful. :P)
jammer0307jammer0307 on December 20th, 2005 07:56 pm (UTC)
Since I didn't really get you anything - we're in the clear. Though I might be able to swing a late Christmas prezzie - it won't come until March though.

J.

P.S. Do you have a nice couch?
dark_faith366: BSGdark_faith366 on December 20th, 2005 09:33 pm (UTC)
That's why I'm happy I don't like Christmas. I don't miss anything at that period exept the warth of July. But then agin I miss that all the time.

As for the insnomnia, I'm sure you already tried everything but what I do when I can't sleep is put myself in front of my X files dvd collection and watch the oldest episode... err I don't even know if you watch X files.
Fimuldy on December 20th, 2005 09:47 pm (UTC)
Am spending my first Christmas without the family too!! Strange isn't it!?

And John's pregnant!? LMFAO!! Now that's pretty funny :P!! Just don't start basing ur fics on ur mice...

...although that could prove interesting ;)
