22nd-May-2017 01:56 pm - Justin Has Seizures...also, Justin at a Beach House
Looking for 2 fics.

1) Justin moves to the Pitts and is living in a basement apartment of Emmett's. He has a history of seizures and can't drive. Meets Brian...

2) Only thing I remember, and not sure how accurate it is, is that Justin is at a friend's beach house and Brian is in a beach house next door not knowing Justin is nearby. There may be some emergency with Gus. Sorry, that's all I remember

So in addition to the cat having his thing...

-Beginning of the year the bathroom tub faucet crapped out. We got an emergency call out to get it fixed at a basic level, but it still needs an overhaul (it's still leaking something fierce). Friend Mum is slowly working toward getting it fixed (e.g. finding a repair person), but that involves a payment plan as even though it is still in her dad's name, her sibling who is in charge of the trust refuses to let any of the trust pay for home repairs because he isn't living there anymore. *sigh*

Anyway. That was the omen I believe.

-Last week or so the kitchen faucet decided to start only putting out a trickle of water. We couldn't get it unscrewed (the aerator part) with a wrench and my dad gave us a suggestion (channel locks) which I think we have downstairs, but then I found some force grips and that worked. Dad said it was likely just that it needed full on replacing (e.g. a new faucet altogether), but once we got the aerator off, it worked fine. Friend Mum picked up a replacement and that is now sorted.

-Sibling's nook charger has bit the dust. And they have a model so old that Barnes and Noble doesn't sell either that model or the charger for it. (If anyone has one such charger or an old Nook/Kindle/tablet (no iPod; sibling doesn't like apple products), I am willing to trade in fic, tea, baked goods, and/or used books!)

-Yesterday when I went to start the just clicked at me. Friend Mum suggested the battery, I countered with checking the spark plug instead. I got the plug number so we'll pick that up so I can change it out with (hopefully) success to get the mower running.

-And the belt has gone on the washer. It has never needed repair, but we discovered that that was likely due to the fact that it was a high end model. It was bought in 1982 for $450. Friend Mum is hunting down the belt right now to see if we can even get it. Luckily, I still have my washer from the old apartment so if the belt is gone forever, we do have a backup.

I love Allie Quixotic's 'How We Got Where We're Going'and it's sequel, 'Now That We Are Here', but I've only ever found a WIP version of it. Does anyone know the fic and whether the finished version exists anywhere? Her LJ blog has been deleted and purged, sadly.

Did Allie write any other fics?

Thanks a bunch

My days have on and off been starting with my cat throwing up. It isn't fun.

But this morning not only did he throw up...he had what appears to be a seizure. It lasted less than a minute and he's just fine now.

What research I found said that there can be a whole bucket load of tests, but in the end, the usual treatment is for anti convulsants which can lead to liver damage.

Now I can't afford one lone vet appointment let alone a lot of tests or long term medication. I'm going to keep an eye on him, see if it happens again. (Research agreed that it will probably be another two months before he has one unless he's the type to get Grand Mal ones.)

I don't think anyone of you are the type to hate me for not taking him in and if you are, feel free to. That isn't what I'm here for. I'm looking to see if any of you have had cats with seizures. Any ideas or tips or what not?

This was from our first showing of Guardians with Clint and sibling's Bucky.

I wanted a photo from today, too, but they had taken down the stand :(

-I got snail mail in from [info]vix_spes! Thank you, love. I do love Marvel stickers. (I'll add them to the collection. And you're right; it's not too often one finds Nat and Clint ones!)

-I have seen Guardians twice. First was last week with Friend Mum (rather than Saturday when all of us were feeling off) and then today with a friend from the theater who treated us. It remains great.

-Sunday was a meh day. Anxiety attacks all around, started by Friend Mum who is having trouble accepting that she is getting older and cannot do much anymore. Sibling and my anxiety attacks started because Friend Mum funneled all her anxiety into a passive aggressive attack to us. Grr. Haven't figured out anything more than the above. She wants to talk, but I don't even know when that'll happen. She seems reluctant to bring it up.

-Got yelled at by manager today. Yesterday, it was cold; I turned off the A.C. Now, I leave the store at 5 p.m. I didn't work today. But the manager texts me that I can change the temp, but not turn it off. Fine, but uh...why didn't anyone fucking check it since I left there yesterday? It warmed up by 7 last night ._. *sigh*

-I found out for sure that ants do not like the scent of peppermint. I was out feeding the birds this afternoon and I see a few scurrying around the front steps. I'd gotten some peppermint oil a few weeks back to use as an anti ant thing, but I figured today "hey, ants are right here; let's see if this works". Yeah, it works. One took a nose dive off the steps to get away from the scent. So I put some of the oil around the windows and doors and then put some lavender oil by the vents since we're suspicious that we might have mice. I also put some of the cedar oil in my closet.

-Reading challenge continues apace. Very happy.
