Yeah, I'm listening to some Presley as I start to write this out. I've got this playlist of catchy music on YouTube, and it's got a mix of a ton of stuff I like on it, and that includes some Presley. I can also hear the sound of the rain, but considering it's been pretty much non-stop rain here the past few days that's not really anything new to be talking about.

What is new? Well... my birthday's on the 14th, and I'll be spending that morning down at the doctor's because she'd got to keep an eye on me and my medication. I saw the psychiatrist - finally - on Monday and he suggested both cutting down on my medication, and (seriously) denying myself the pills in a situation in which I would normally take them. Oh, and he also didn't listen to me, and only shut up when Mum had to forcefully interject and mention that there had been a recent set back because my Dad had had a heart attack. He also didn't like me looking over at Mum to make sure I'd gotten to dates of when I started certain medications right.

In short; it wasn't exactly an appointment I felt very secure in. Came out feeling on the wrong foot and very tired. Basically wandered over to the shop and got a cup of tea, and then went home. Spent most of today just sort of wandering around trying to do work, and somehow falling into naps every couple of hours. Side effect of that means I am now kind of ... very aware. Which is bleh, but what can you do?

Newest Baby Cousin - henceforth known as Baby T for the moment - will have his Christening either next month, or the month after. I promise his Mum and Dad that I would get him Lion King goodies. I'll get the bean bag plush because they'd be easier for him to hold. There doesn't seem to be much baby Lion King stuff on the UK Disney Store site, but I shall press on, somehow.

Need to get a new bookcase; another shelf collapsed on me the other day and while it's still... kind of up, the Dad and I are kind of thinking that we're doing more repair work on this bookcase lately than we are just... having a bookcase. So we are going on a search for a new one. And by new I mean we're checking all the charity furniture places first, because they tend to have a lot of awesome things in. There's this place relatively near us that is fantastic for this kind of thing, so that'll probably be the first place we end up checking out

Last book in The School for Good and Evil series was actually really good and ended in a way that was perfect for the story and the characters as they stood. I know there were nay-sayers due to their ship being sunk, but logically? The ending given told an important message, and that's really good. I've also started the Yotsuba&! manga, and that's basically cuteness in a bound cover. I think I'd like - if I manage to get rid of the bigger desk in my room - a smaller bookcase for my manga and trade paperbacks/hardcovers. They're all kind of piled on a shelf at the moment, and it'd be nicer to have them semi-displayed.

Yonderland series 2 is making me giggle, and... erm, well that's pretty much it on the currently on going fandom front. The new Horrible Histories series is alright. Not good, not bad, just... alright. Some episodes are stronger than others. Though they had Rowan Atkinson starring in an ep. He did not play a Blackadder expy. I weep.
