... I went to type this, the page jumped, I marked all my messages as read.
which is far from the worst thing that could have happened, but still. 83 pages, now all same.

ANYway

I win
I went to dancing, and while not speedy and a bit wobbly, I danced the whole time
and then I did my shoppings.

I'm kind of headachey
and my hallway smells a bit not good from some of the new stuff

but I did all the thursday things, so yaays.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I like dancing even though I'm really not very good at it.
I didn't remember the new dance, and there's a bit on the middle where even if I do remember my feet don't do the things, but I have a lot of fun anyway.
Also my back no longer hurts, pretty much, and I can do dancing for the whole length of the lesson with no extra sitting downs.

:-)

Shopping was also excellent. ASDA had twenty four juices again so now I have Many and shopping there is optional for ages. Sainsburys had the nice foods as usual, except for my breakfast teacakes, those were empty so I got a dofferent sort that might not be correct. Shall see.

:-)

I am in a plenty good mood.
Meditating and dancing seems to work pretty good.

Also I did a ton of laundry today and it mostly worked as intended. One set of drying did not in fact dry; I think it needs to cool down before the sensor knows what it's meant to do. But that set is in the dryer again now so with any luck it should work.

I don't think the laundry smells the same though, even though we made the packets match quite carefully. I dislike when things just get changes and there's no options about it.

I did laundry all afternoon while I also slept, so I woke up and changed the settings or took stuff out and put stuff in and then went back to sleep. Efficient ;-)


Pretty good day.

Thursday almost worked.
I had to stop at Morrisons to get Ribena cause i ran out of drinks slightly before shopping hour.
And then there was an accident on the a47 and it went all jam for a while
so I got to dancing one quarter hour late.
I am not very good at remembering dances and cannot turn them around in my head if i start from a different place
but i have fun.

asda had twelve of five alive, yaay
and sainsburys had food, though setting out to refill my fridge only ended up with half a dozen items.
i need more varieties of meals.

but now i have apple pastry and all is :-)

I went to dancing and it was fun. I know more dances than I think, but not as well as I'd like.

I got all wore out though. All the way up to All Done without actually being done. It was weird feeling tearful and cheerful at the same time.

I finished the shopping though so that worked out. And then I made large food, because I forgot to eat today except biscuit, which probably explains a lot.

I am sooooooo tired. I was just on autopilot to finish eating.

Next I should sleep. But that involves getting out of this chair to go to bed...

Dancing :-)

Today I was going to do double dancing but my back hurt last week so this week didn't seem like a time to double my exercise.
But I did one hour of dancing lessons and it was fun. We started a new dance, and it involves quite a lot of traveling around the floor, which always leads to laughing and bumping and oops. But it stayed fun oops, so, that was fun.

Then it was shopping time. Asda had all of three Five Alive. I guess I bought all the juice that time I got twenty four. It would be nice if their computer could learn I want nine to twelve every week, but I guess it can't if there are not nine to twelve to buy every week, and I keep pouncing on twenty four. So.

Sainsburys had my apple thing though, and bread and quorns and tea for mum, and also a silver top for half price that will do nicely for the convention next month. Also there's another set of china that I like the look of. It's like I've had for years only probably nicer. But now I am home I remembered I was planning to get two different colors this time, and this would be two of blue. But it is nice. And it has nice pasta bowls too, interesting shapes. I shall think on it.

Now I am tired.

But I have nice foods for eating. I win.

The thing that bugs me about dance is how gendered it can be. I mean, a song comes on, the DJ says girls on one side guys on the other, and even if he is clear we’re just choosing sides for the length of the song and anyone can stand anywhere, it’s still sides. I stay seated. Cause otherwise I’d be dancing somewhere in the middle.

I went looking on youtube and I found

official vid of sort of dance we're trying to do
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9qfTdOQVcM Chammak Challo

video of actual people from dance class
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-eQ67fnZn8

and another one with a song I don't know
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnGLx1NamxU

I worry sometimes about cultural appropriation but it's a sort of dance which so far I can so, so, is fun.

It was the last dance class of the year so we did dressing up and trying lots of old dances. Teacher reckoned I wouldn't know them, because been away long and long. But I knew seven dances :-)
... not well enough to figure where my feet go. or where I should be moving around the floor to, so I did mostly sitting down dancing, but still, I have studied Many, and would only need to polish the memory up a bit.

I wore long gloves with the shinies down the side, and a waist scarf with jangly coins. I do not have xmas costume. Nut others were a nun or... well, one person brought a whole bag and changed between dances, over the top of a batgirl with a cape, so there was not really an overarching theme.

Teacher gave us all cards and presents :-)
I shall find out what present on present opening day.
but, present :-)



Asda was adequate, Sainsbury's had my foods, and I found the paper tablecloth I need for xmas, with gold stars.

Pretty good day.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Dancing again today. I couldn't quite concentrate. Also sometimes felt a bit like on remote control. Boo. I usually like dancing. But I didn't crunch anyone today so I still winning.

I was thinking what dance Mick Rory might get into.

Maybe morris? Big blokes, beer, and big sticks. Plus I found some on youtube calling itself a fire dance, but since they were just wearing black and orange tatter coats rather than actually on fire he may find that disappoint.


ASDA had only 3/12 the five alive I wanted, Sainsburys hadn't got my apple pastry though they did apologise plenty good, and they don't sell some of the first aid stuff I was look for neither. Also I forgot my penguin bag because driver was ten minute early so I didn't get all the freezer things neither. not a very successful.

but i'm home safe so that's okay.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
dancing was nice
we have learned the whole of the new dance and are now trying to be good at it
which takes a bunch of work.

shopping worked. five alive worked. apple pastry worked. plenty of pasta. And Sainsburys sell a sparkly loo seat, so hopefully this third one will go on and not be broken. loo seats are ridiculous.



I was so tired this morning I had to stop before the end of the fic, when they'd done the Daring Adventure and the Horrible Misunderstanding and they were ready for the Happily Ever After. So I have that to look forwards to.

but right now I get to eat apple trellis :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I can do the dance to Twist and also the new dance we been working on since I turned up and I don't crash in to anyone and I mostly remember it and for bonus points I didn't need any extra sittings down.

I now appear to have done something slightly painful to my... side above my hip? maybe? somewhere slightly vague that only happens when I do an improbable sort of turn and lift. lovely.

and shopping didn't work very well. Five of five alive is only okay because I have a reserve built up, and there was no apple pastry put aside, which I am disproportionately :( about. also I didn't get the bread I wanted because it wasn't there. and a few other bits like that. silly frustrations.

but i have plenty of foods, yaays.

and I did dancing and I'm getting okay at it :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I remembered the Twist dance I learned last time I went to dancing lessons. And that was many years ago. I danced it like everyone else today.

Winning :-)

I am slightly more of a muddle about the dance we are currently learning, because there's bits where you end up facing backwards and can't follow the same people. But I didn't crunch anyone so that works out.

Thursday routine takes 45 minutes longer when we have to do the shopping backwards and use the back roads :-(

But my juice was there and my apple things were there and I have many foods now, including everything for christmas if I don't eat it first. That's not very impressive, for christmas I cook quorn chunks and steamfresh vegetable bags, and maybe micro chips if mum doesn't want to do roast potato. But she has said she will do the potato and gravy this year so my half is ready.

I don't like the coats on sale at the moment. They happen in too short, and too small, and far too many are too dark. They are not warm and waterproof at once. Most of them are for looking fashionable on the way to the car. What if you want something to function correctly? And why do only worker coats in the yellow have any reflective stripes? Everyone needs to be visible at night, it seems like they could incorporate reflective bits more widely and creatively.

I took a couple pictures of DVD sets I wouldn't mind getting for christmas too so I can tell mum those next time she asks. We're difficult.

I like Thursdays :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
thought I wrote this when I got home, but nope
today I went dancings :)
which would have worked better in a larger area but the teacher found out three hours before class that the drama studio she booked now has a stage set in the middle. so that was fun.

I almost half remembered the dance I learned like five years ago.
Also I wore my gloves so when there was unexpected hand grabbing it was only funny and not argh.

the route home is currently closed for roadworks so we got back like half an hour later than usual.
but I have my foods and drinks so that works out.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
It was Dancing again :-)
Dancing on the opposite side of the room makes everything awkward again. Also I kept finding uppy downy bits and the floor isn't supposed to do that.

While I was dancing the security guy came in and said he'd found an exhaust and someone's exhaust had fallen off. Which turned out to be Employee's. Which, you know, was awkward.
It was only the bit at the back and apparently it works fine without that, as evidenced by our arriving home with all the shopping as per usual.
But that was not a good day for Employee.

I have as much Five Alive juice as I wanted :-)
Also I have nice apple trellis pastries like I wanted :-)
And ordered same again for next week so I can has next week too :-)

Quorn or Sainsburys have changed what is available though, so I do not have what I was planning to eat. If they've stopped making what I was planning to eat I shall be Very Annoyed. Again.

But today was a pretty okay day, unless you are Employee, who now has to fix the busted stuff.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I did Bollywood Sparkles dancing and did not have to have a sit down except when it was sitting down time
:-D

Then we did ASDA shoppings and the Five Alive was in stock, so I have twelve as intended
And Sainsburys shoppings worked too, because the food I ordered was indeed there, so I have apple thing to eat again :-D
Plus I maybe found a trousers. Trousers are difficult so I bought them but I'm not sure. They say Short because Regular went on the floor but I don't know if Short will be too short. I can take them back later if they don't work. But they're grey on grey pinstripe in an acceptable texture and autumn/winter weight, so they're pretty promising so far.

Pretty good day.
And plans for next week were made also :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Or a bit difficult, anyway. Today my back was hurting when I did one specific sort of twist move. It worked okay, just, not optimal.
And the shuffle jumps make me nauseous and dizzy, which is unhelpful, and then I have to have a sit down, and today wasn't the usual place so there was only one chair, and my employee had to keep getting out the chair so I could sit down until I felt more well.
But I still like dancing. When it works. Which is tricky.

They also did a stick dance today, which looks like more fun because going round in circles with sticks going CLACK. But that dance lesson is on Wednesday so I'd have to decide between that and talking about science fiction, and generally I choose talking about science fiction over anything, so.

ASDA click and collect only kinda worked, because even with a week's notice they only had 8 of my chosen juice, and one Ribena but by the time we got that home the lid was missing so it won't pour right or reseal. The silver seal held though so no sploosh. I think it got squashed when we stopped for the car stopping for the cat. That was a bit abrupt.

Sainsburys didn't have my chosen food but explained its because it's a one day food so they reduce the price at 5pm so they'll never have it by 9pm. But I can order one for next week. So I did that. That'll be good, hopefully, if I chose the right thing. And then that will work every week if it works at all. Improvement. The pasta twists however just didn't be there. *sigh* I have four left but I've been eating one every day so four is not optimal.

I took the books back to the library book drop. Library was closed but that'll still count okay. I didn't ever read them, just failed at Go To Library a lot.

I got the information I needed to set up another thing (Thursday afternoons maybe work)
And tried to set up a shoppings in next week, which only maybe might work, but might is better than nothing. I need to go to the shops and stare at washer dryers. Soon. They're tricky.

That's six tasks achieved since six pm. Including an hour of dancing. And talking to people in shops.

Guess I'm winning.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
got a grand total of four hours sleep. starting at about 0900.
ugh.

went to dancing anyways.
felt nausea and got dizzy in the spinny parts and had to have a sit down a bunch.

went to shoppings.
juice shop no has my juice, apple lattice shop no has my apple pastries.

now I am home.

so on the plus side nothing big bad happened, but on the minus side the good things did not work.

also if I feel like this tomorrow it is not much point trying to have an Expedition. So we get to find out in the morning if any sleep has been achieved or if I still feel ill. and I can cancel if I feel unwell. but I don't want to. because I want to feel well enough to be excited about going to the museum like I planned for months.

boo.

but now I'm home, so that part is working fiiiiiine.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
went to dancings
did a shoppings
ASDA click and collect drive through functioned correctly, but Sainsburys shopping at this time of night is not so much useful, things have been ate that I wanted.

feeling kind of flat. It's a better flat than there was before dancing and shopping was achieved, but still, flat. I think its because if this routine keeps up I have fixed things that I know how to fix, but life is still sort of ... needing fixing. somehow. if I can think of a way.

like, dancing is nice, but it's not world changing or anything.
and I still need to figure out What To Do Next For The Rest Of My Life.
which is a lot of figuring.

still, routine is very nearly established as planned.
winning.


and next week's plan for an Expedition to the British Museum is in place too.
:-)


so this week achieved and next week looking good.

Dancing!

I went dancing again and didn't crash into anyone and only mildly hurt myself!
... okay, so, it was not optimal today.
The teacher decided the hall was Far Too Hot, and she indeed had a point, but that meant trying to teach us outside. Nice smooth dancing floor is MUCH better than trying to dance on two different textures of asphalt and concrete. it kept trying to grab my feet, and one time I found a twig with my foot, and it was Not Good. I only a little hurt my knee but I am displeased at the conditions that led to it. Also it got dark and it's stupid trying to dance in the dark when you're trying to see the teacher and the floor isn't smooth.
So I got grumpy, and then I was grumpy I was grumpy, because dancing isn't supposed to make me grumpy, so then there was a grumpiness spiral.
But it wore off on the way home, so now I'm feeling :-) again.

Also I might at some point learn this dance? It's quite difficult being new when the dance isn't, but I might at least get the hands part.



Then we went to ASDA for my juice, but it turns out that someone else bought it. The guy we asked was chatty and informative about why there was not juice. His beep machine said that it only sells one or two a day usually, but then someone bought a whole case today. Usually that's me. So maybe there's someone else annoyed that I keep buying their juice?
I think I shall try to Click and Collect it next week. If we're going a regular schedule I can try that.

But I found a Captain Marvel figure in the toys section :-) Actually my employee found there was a girl looking one while I was still checking the shelves higher up for any female character at all at all. None except Captain Marvel, but three of her, so I have one now.
:-)

Sainsburys was better, though they didn't have my apple lattice pastries either. Which is better for my waistline, but not smile making. They did have excellent new shirts so I have a shirt of many colors for autumn now. I wanted trousers, because it will soon not be summer trouser weather, but did not find any today. I did find both seasons of The Flash that I wanted, season 2 of the current one and the set of the 90s one. So I have many things to watch.
:-)



And I can do all this again next week. Freedom is grand.

Dancing!

We went to Bollywood Dancings :-)
I have not been for aaaaaages, since August 2012 my tags says, because it moved and I stopped going in to college and I didn't have transport, but now I can get there again
and it is Fun.

... many parts creaky crackled that probably should not have, and there's no way I'll remember much of the dance for next week, but basically it is fun.

And I can go again later :-)
This having an employee again thing is most excellent.
beccaelizabeth: Ethan Rayne smiles (Ethan smiles)
I went to Bollywood dancing lessons
and everyone said happy birthday
and I didn't crash into anyone and remembered at least half a dance and it turns out I haven't gone for, like, months, so that was quite good then.

And then mum and me and employee went to Pulse to eat vegan food
I had spinach and mushroom vegan pizza and it is very good to eat
and then there was chocolate vegan ice cream.

Also they have little badges for the RSPB or something and I found one that is a butterfly and one that is a merlin, so I feel like I had nice birthday shiny things too.
Mum bought me a ring but while it goes on it took some doing to get it to come off, so I think I'm not going to wear that. But it is shiny with butterfly and very nice.

Now I am home.

... my neighbour is listening to their same music on repeat again. I keep wanting to buy them headphones and maybe a gift card for new music. I suspect that wouldn't work.

My day went quite good though :-)

I went to Bollywood Sparkles dancing lessons and learned more dance.
It's annoying, I'm better at it at the start than at the end. Or possibly I'm best at it on the second try. But by the end I'm all tired and my feet get muddled and my hands won't do all the things at once. And it's only an hour long!
I think I need to do more active things the other six days and twenty three hours of the week.

After we went to Sainsbury's because unlike Tesco they still have quorn food, and like Tesco they're on the way home. so I read all the packets and found food I can eat that can go in the microwave. Most of it is the same usual food but being actually available means it wins.

Now I have one cool bag with a polar bear and one with a penguin.
I feel like I should keep them at opposite ends of the kitchen or something.
beccaelizabeth: A stopwatch, caption Debauch Watch.  It's Ianto's stopwatch, used for fun times with Jack later. (stopwatch)
I spent the afternoon working on my diss prep research proposal
and just when I got the word count down to one word less than the limit
I noticed I had five minutes to get ready to go dancing.

Dancing was fun :-)
Until my knee went click and decided it did not wish to be load bearing. There was pain but I didn't fall down so that's a partial win.
I think possibly I should move more than once a week ;-)

Then we went to Sainsbury's on the way back. They did not have the quorn I was looking for, though they had far more than Tesco does at the moment. They did have 25% off clothes and I got two shirts and a skirt. I hope they fit properly, I wasn't trying them on today.

Next was Tesco. They had pyjamas with a sparkly crown and hearts on that say Keep Calm and Sleep. Now I has.
They did not have even as much quorn as last week. Not sandwich type and not meal type and not much that didn't have cheese in it.
I said to the checkout person :-( no quorn, and they said they would tell customer service tomorrow when there was someone working there again.

and now I am home again.

that was quite a lot of doings.

I still need to shop for food though.
The bread quest was successful but my protein course is lacking variety and only has a couple days of existing left.

Today

May. 24th, 2012 09:39 pm
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
phoned mum, talked, got us both :-( about politics
went to bed
neighbours did hammering and something to do with cars that made a noise like choking a fire alarm
slept
... probably slept, some.

Dancing!
I went to Bollywood Sparkles dancing and we learned more dance. It's quite complicated with going around the floor in big shapes and ending up in lines that are sometimes straight or diagonal or curves or circles. There is nowhere to hide at the back and copy because everywhere turns into the front at some point. Difficult.
But I did dancing all the hour, yaay.

Tesco shopping.
None my foods were there. We looked. Some of them don't even have a place on the shelf. Quorn foods were mostly out. I found a cottage pie, and now I'm thinking I should have bought more of them even though I don't want to eat a bunch of days of cottage pie, because actually there's no other things. Even in the frozen section. Nothing that microwaves. Nothing I can eat.
boo.

So I got icecream and apple puffs and bread.
which isn't my best shopping ever.

I would like to move to Norwich for many reasons, including: there are several shops, and one of them has to have something I can eat. And several of them deliver.

I went to dancing and it was fun :-)
... I had a dizzy and did sitting down dancing for the first bit, but they were going through all the dances we've ever done, for performance, so I wouldn't have remembered them all anyway.
Then I did standing up dancing for when we got to the dances we did recently.

they're going to do a lot of performances soon. They've got like all the weekends in a row for a while. I don't know. I don't do standing up in front of people even for dancing.
... actually, being first or only on the dance floor, I do do that, but it's different when you do it and call it a performance. or indeed when you do it with the lights on.

after we went to Pulse and I had vegan pizza with spinach and mushrooms. I like it. I didn't like the mediterranean vegetables version because you could never know what the next bite would be like, but the spinach and mushroom had a green layer and a mushroom layer and I like it.
they ran out of vegan ice cream though. sad.
but cheaper.
