Note to self: Don't be a moron
Wii Fit yoga less than a week after abdominal surgery?

STUPID. STUPID. STUPID. *headdesk*

I blame the narcotics.

My brain (clearly still on drugs): But it's yoga! No strength-exercises, no jackknifes, no pushups, no aerobic jumping around, it'll be fine!

Me: Er.

My brain (yep, still on drugs): Besides, you KNOW the thing is going to nag you even more if you go another day without doing anything with it.

Me: ...dammit.

*much fail later*

Learn from my stupidity, young grasshoppers. *hobbling toward the hydrocodone bottle*

must try to catch up with comments later? Crazy week, writing deadline, & two Christmas parties in different cities coming up this weekend, followed by I suspect a loooot of crash and burn sleep...

*very belated hugs back, just today realized I hadn't caught up with this thread due to staggering stupidity downthread...* I'm still pretty much a zombie, and the doc who can change my meds has rescheduled me 3x already due to also being a reproductive medicine person who gets called out for emergency caesarians all the time. And obviously she's going to go out for the emergency caesarians! It's just that I wish like heck someone could get to see me, preferably someone who wasn't going to be called out on emergencies, so I could get permission to stop taking medicine that turns me into a damn walking zombie... -_________- I'm vertical about 9 hours a day, flat or asleep about 15, and really really sick and tired of being sick and tired. Arrgh.

[The icon is in regards to the downthreadness. Wow, how insensitive...]

*hughughugHUG* I've had a very!Caterina week. I worked half a day Monday, got a fever and the horrid stomach-bug, got sent home. Stayed home Tuesday. Worked Wednesday. Felt fine. Worked half a day Thursday, got a fever, got sent home. Worked all day today. Have to work tomorrow no matter what.

I DO wish you felt better. And I wish I knew something to help. Maybe a CD of happy!musics? <3 Hopefully your doctor will be able to help you out soon?

Scritch the Bunter for me....and know I'm thinking of you!

oh man, I hope you feel better soon too! Bunter has been thoroughly snuggled and is currently perched on the top of his cat climbing tree throne as master of all he surveys. :) I've got an appointment with the doctor next week unless she has to cancel it again for yet another unexpected surgery... wish me luck!

Ah, Bunter-kitteh <3 *scritchsnuggle* xDDD I felt much better today! Just getting in from work. Putting out feed for the birds and also the stray kitties that have kind of decided we're ok. Mostly. I haven't seen them in a couple days but something is eating thier kitty-foods - I'm hoping it's them!

Got my fingers crossed for you and your doctor visit! <3

funny you should mention drugbrain! Hadn't realized I never replied to this thread... surgery's all done, but ongoing maintenance drugs are making it really, really hard to stay vertical longer than 9-10 hours a day. @___@ really hoping to get fixed correctly some time one of these months...

Take care of yourself! You should beg off the Christmas parties if you are not feeling well enough. The world will continue to turn...

Silly person! Your insides are like hamburger and doing yoga is like holding up your weight. A week after surgery and you're on heavy pain meds? REST WOMAN. REST.

XD;;;;; sorry I never got back to this sooner -- I'm over the surgery, but the drugs they have me on for ongoing maintenance are knocking me on my ass. @___@ I'm really hoping to get back to being conscious more than 9 hours a day and spending 8 of them getting through work some day soon...

*wince* Ooooh, yeah, not the best idea, eh? Ouuuchie~ ^^;;;

But for future reference, you can just weigh yourself and then turn it off--it only nags you if you skip weighing yourself.

Hopefully the tea I sent this week will get there in time for tea-making-things-better. :D

I just saw that comment. OMFG. I'm boggling. Who the hell thinks it's OK to bug someone about a fic in a post talking about recovering from surgery?! And a fic that hasn't been updated in five years?

I wish I was actually surprised. I get notes like this every week or two from entitled Naruto fans -- and specifically and only Naruto fans, and this exact pattern is the entire reason I quit writing the fic in a pissed off rage the first time. They all try to pull some variation on "pleeeeeeease whine whine moan bitch" / "I'm so disappointed in you" / "obviously you're not a REAL writer or you'd finish NO MATTER WHAT" / "so much for your reputed professionalism" / name-calling, insults, death threats, whining, complaining, failed attempts at being cute, et cetera et cetera et cetera. And I'm not actually kidding about the death threats.

I've met a couple extremely awesome people in the Naruto fandom whom I'm still friends with and glad to have met. But other than them, I'm seriously regretting the fact that I ever thought it was a fun bit of fluff to play with.

There seems to be something about the Naruto fandom that attracts people with a mindset that goes "I am entitled to free entertainment when I want it and I have every right to demand/beg/wheedle/threaten/expect it from an author regardless of the facts of their own life." There's a string of them threaded through various past LJ posts based on whatever was the top post at the time. Normally I either ignore them or delete them, but the "get done with surgery and write me fic now teehee" just pissed me right the hell off. ^^;;;;

Every week? Even now, after five frickin' years?! That's just...wow. Yeah, wow. OMFG.

Please tell me you pulled the fic from, well, pretty much everywhere. And next whiny e-mail nagging for you to finish just add this chapter: "Rocks fall, everybody dies. THE END."

I remember you saying how utterly entitled the Naruto fandom is (and the death threats; wtf, y'all). I wonder what it is about Naruto, because yeah, I've heard similar things before (hence the whole "Narutard" thing). Yeesh. I don't think I've meet a single person who actually likes the Naruto fandom.

Oh, and is caffeine and tea still verboten? If not, the tea shop near me is selling sakura green tea and chocolate strawberry tea. :D If yes, they've got some interesting-looking herbal blends...

Glad to hear you are out of surgery. Once you're off your drugs but before you have to work do you think you could update you fanfic 'Side Effects'? The cliff hanger will put me in the hospital soon :) from sheer vexation. If you cant think of anythig that's ok but you haven't updates fanfiction since 2005..... we miss you and that is a truly funny and amazing fanficiton.

...Once you're off your drugs but before you have to work do you think you could update you fanfic 'Side Effects'?...

This is possibly the stupidest question I have been asked for a LONG, LONG TIME.

How long do you think people can take off work? And you're asking this how many months after this post?

The cliff hanger will put me in the hospital soon :) from sheer vexation. No. No, IT WILL NOT. You're not right, and you're not funny. You're just pushy and obnoxious. Especially to someone who's spent a hell of a lot too much time in hospitals over the past half a year.

Since you seem to have no grasp of either (a) real working life or (b) the process of recovering from surgery, let me put this in very small words for you.

NO.

...Are you out of your goddamned mind?

I normally don't curse at people I don't know, but I'm sitting here with my jaw hanging open and had to read this comment three times before it really sank in that yes, you were really sitting there and bugging someone, in a post talking about recovering from surgery to update a frickin' fanfic, and one that hadn't been updated in five bloody years.

The cliff hanger will put me in the hospital soon :) from sheer vexation.

You are not funny, and you are not cute. Nor do smilies make everything better. What you are, to be blunt, is an unempathetic, unsympathetic jackass.

If you cant think of anythig that's ok but you haven't updates fanfiction since 2005

Oh, well, thanks! It's OK if she can't think of anything; how generous of you. Seriously, WTF. If it's "If you cant think of anythig that's ok" why the fuck are you even commenting to her? Not being able to think of anything=writer's block=no updates=this comment is a waste of everyone's time.

Unless, of course, you're just trying to make yourself look magnanimous passive-aggressively. Considering this whole comment is the passive-aggressive guilt-trip poster child, I'm gonna go with that. STOP THAT.

Oh, and? If a fic has not been updated in five years, well, to be blunt, stop holding your goddamned breath.

I can not believe the sheer lack of tact, feeling, perspective, and sheer amount of balls and asshattery it takes to write a comment like this. "Once you're off your drugs but before you have to work do you think you could update you fanfic 'Side Effects'?" ...the shit? Did you seriously, and I mean seriously, sit there and go, "Oh, hey, I want this person to update! So what it's been five years? Oh, I have an idea! If I gently prod them, they will write it while recovering! I'll even tell them when they can work on it! They just needed to be reminded people want to read it!"

Your attempts at a guilt trip ("the cliffhanger will put me the hospital soon," "that's ok but") are tacky and full of fail. As is your entire comment.

Perspective. Learn you some.

My appologies. I will learn tact. Sorry for still being a kid. Sorry you don't like my humor. Get well soon.

All I was saying was that nothing has been done in 5 years at all. But some authors at least put in a post saying, "yeah I have writer's block and don't want to finish this so the end."

Sorry for liking your work.

You're talking to the wrong person; I'm just a friend of chibirisuchan's who has low tolerance for bullshit, and an even lower one for passive-aggressive bullshit. And you have again hit my tolerance limit with that passive-aggressive "sorry for liking your work" bullshit at the end (actually, the whole comment you just left was passive-aggressive bullshit, but the last line took the cake.)

Protip: when you're in a hole, stop fucking digging. AKA: Slink away.

Also, a writer doesn't owe you shit. That includes not owing you an ending, another chapter, or a "I don't want to finish" notice. Get over it.
