Not how I saw my Wednesday night going.

I used to have PSVT. Basically my heart flutters and my blood pressure plummets. If it happens for a long period of time, you black out. I had surgery for it in 2003
Today it happened and I blacked out ( which hasn’t happened for years)
So here I am :(

Oh my god, are you OK?  Anything I can do?

More books for Tree of Reverie’s read-a-thon

Wallflower's been recomended by too many people whose opinion I respect; I have to read it.
I loved Charlton’s first book Spellwright, and have been waiting for the sequel.
Tanya Huff is one of my favorite authors, and this is a new series.
The Bartimaeus Trilogy was a gift … I look forward to reading it.

And I have “read”the entire JD Robb In Death series in the car as Audio Books, and the latest finally came in the mail today.  Can’t wait for tomorrow’s commute.  Susan Ericksen is an awesome narrator, she has different voices for each character.

Yeah, this’ll take “slightly more time than we have”

Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.

WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!

being romantically frustrated is 1000000 worse than being sexually frustrated because you can get yourself off but you can’t spoon with yourself and kiss your own forehead

As I’m sitting sort of outside of his office, my lit teacher comes over to me and asks what I’m reading. When he sees Middlesex, he pats me on the shoulder (because that’s the book he told me to read so that we can discuss it together); then he sees A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (one…
