Last week, The Husband was gone, off doing the Artist Thing at a M:tG event in Vegas. This means that even tho' my usual bedtime routine involves sleep meds, my sleep was not ... how should I put this? Restful. Constant waking up to various degrees.

Then, to add another layer of sleep deprivation: Today was the start of three days of early morning planning meetings for work. I'm in favor of planning meetings! I totally support having them! But almost my entire team is located in Ottawa, which means East Coast time zone. Today's meetings started at 6am my time, and went through (with breaks) to 1pm. Wednesday's round of meetings start at 7am, and then back to 6am start for Thursday. This sort of schedule, combined with my delayed sleep phase disorder, means that I'm going to feel off-kilter jetlagged to hell without any travel for all of this week.

Aaaaaaaand, on top of all this: I had an awful migraine all day yesterday. On top of the off-and-on migraine I'd had for a week. I finally agreed with The Husband that maybe my neck was out? And yeah, I probably should make an appointment with the chiropractor? So I went in this afternoon, and my chiro cheerfully informed me that not only was my neck out in the usual spot (right at the base of my skull), but that my lower back was out on the right side, and oh hey, I had a rib out of place on each side, in different spots.

SELF, THIS IS NOT AN AREA WE NEED TO BE AN OVERACHIEVER.

After lots of clicks and crunches, hey presto! The migraine immediately lessened. The chiro also told me that according to my chart I come in every two months or so, which means that my idle thought that I should get some sort of x-rays or other imaging done to see if there's something going on with my neck needs to be not so idle anymore.

Back to cartomancy

Today our internet provider was doing work in our neighborhood, which mean ahahahahahah no internet. As someone who works from home for a tech company, this was less than ideal. In theory, at least. In reality, I worked on content offline, and occasionally checked my work email via my phone.

The Great Decluttering of the bedroom is almost done. There's one small corner left, and that's probably not being touched until next week, because two and a half days of yanking everything out, sorting and boxing things, and cleaning has left me a leetle worn out.

I bagged up 35 t-shirts to donate. I still have a large drawer-full that I'm keeping, because you will pry my concert shirts out of my undead hands. My vintage The Cure shirt! My Sisters of Mercy shirt from the early 2000s! OMG MY DAVID BOWIE SHIRT, from ... again, an early 2000s tour. (Pardon me while I get angry all over again about the ex-boyfriend of mine who made off with a lot of my old concert shirts. I had a shirt from the Sound + Vision tour. HAD. Grrrrr.)

Anyway, progress on the Great Decluttering!

Why am I doing this again?

Oh right, because there comes a point in every packrat's life where they need to clean and organize. And I'll admit, I do like the end result! It's just getting there is very tedious.

Day Two of the Great Decluttering! STATUS UPDATE:


  • Huh, I made a bunch of lace jabots some years in the past? I don’t remember doing that. But there they were, sitting in a hat box on an upper shelf.

  • I found the lost kingdom of black rubber bracelets.

  • THAT’s where that box of fans went! Into the bin for the Eldergoth Surprise Boxes you go.

  • Awww, remember when someone at Hot Topic HQ was lurking on alt.gothic and lifting phrases to be turned into stickers? I apparently bought a bunch of them, then put them “someplace safe”, where they haven’t seen the light of day for … well, let’s just say a while.

  • HOLY BATS A COMPLETE SET OF BPAL IMPS FOR THE ORIGINAL RELEASE OF AMERICAN GODS. I don’t know why you forgot about these, past self, but thank you?

  • That’s where those two tiny perfume bottle necklaces went!

  • THE LOST KINGDOM OF HATBOXES!


And dust. So much dust, OMG.

Oof. I did this to myself

Today was the start of the Great Uncluttering, which is going to be an ongoing project this summer. Today was the day I tackled the bedroom. My main goal was to completely clear the area behind the dresser/in front of one of my wardrobes. That's the section where all the shoes and boots live, and it usually turns into a heap of petticoats and skirts.

I was ruthless about sorting through some bins that lived in that corner, that were full of fabric scraps and assorted paper. A whole lot went in the trash and recycling, and there are multiple bags of fabric pieces that are going to the local thrift store to be recycled there.

Or, as I said over on Tumblr, STATUS UPDATE:


  • Not devoured by petticoats, boots, or velvet skirts.

  • Have discovered the bedroom floor in that corner.

  • Have culled a whole bunch of clothes (including vintage Lip Service) for selling later. (eBay or Poshmark? I need to figure that out.)

  • Put together an entire bin of gothy accessories, fabric, and ephemera for upcoming Eldergoth Surprise Boxes.
