1. I received my very first good brace in the mail yesterday -- unlike the ones I get from my doctor, this one actually fits and is lined with smooth fabric. It is like nine times more comfortable than the brace I was wearing this time yesterday. Also, it looks much more hacker!brace and much less like why-is-this-a-hideous-medical-blue? And then I slept in it and only woke up once.

2. I watched an episode of Spartacus and, listen, I just can't do it guys. I don't care how much Lucy Lawless makes out with chicks in it, I can't do it. If there are particularly kinky bits that I really ought to clip, I'd appreciate an "episode four, about halfway through" or something, because otherwise it's not happening.

Also, the blood is so amazingly fake that I kept thinking it was pomegranate juice. Or maybe cranberry. "Spartacus: Pomegranate Juice and Sand" doesn't have nearly the ring to it, though.

3. We had a minor SNOWPOCALYPSE here, and reacted as one should to all snowpocalypses: we went outside half an hour before the sun set and made a snowperson. And then, because we are a [personal profile] thingswithwings and a [personal profile] eruthros, we started to make another snowperson, and in fact a whole snowscene, and then it got dark so we had to come inside before we finished. But I'm sure that they will be completed tomorrow!

4. When I play in the snow, I consider hot chocolate to be my just reward. So! There was hot chocolate! And it was tasty.

All in all, a very satisfactory day!

I hope that it was a snow-scene in the BDSM sense.

I'm so glad you have a comfortable new brace! Hooray!

Yay for good braces! And it sounds like you all made the most of the snowpocalypse; I applaud your industry. I have mostly been content to stare out of the window occasionally from my covers. And I still get hot chocolate:)

Comfortable braces are so awesome. My wrist/thumb brace is the greatest brace in the world, for me, and I've been repeatedly buying them from the same company for like, heh, eight years now? Man, if they ever go out of business, I am going to be fucked. (I should probably just buy 50 of the things or something, haha.)

Me, too, man. The camera is fascinating, anyway - I haven't seen 300 for a load of reasons, but from stills & such, I imagine this is what it looked like: hyper-coloured, contrasts like whoa, rather comic-like.

But that is precisely what makes it so hilarious! That first scene, with the GREEN pasture-hills, and the RED LEAVES BLOWING PAST against the IMPOSSIBLE SKY, not to mention the WIND TOUSLING HIS WILD HAIR! ♥

If this show were shot straight, I wouldn't have made it through even the first ep because I would have had only the story (whut?) and the dialogues (WHUT?). But this OTT CGI is making it fun for me. :)

I couldn't take more than five minutes of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. But [personal profile] faefyre keeps telling me that it gets better. I'm still not going to watch, though. Ugh.

Yay! Brace!

Do you get the kind of brace where it's arts and crafts project time with warm plastic molded around the relevant limb (by one's therapist) and then decorated with bits of foam and other padding and random velcro pieces here and there? They fit well, but man they are ugly. Also, this post is reminding me I should go brace myself. *does so*

The best brace I have is a carpal tunnel brace I got at the local medical supply store. It is ridiculously strong (mmm, reinforced metal) and fits great, but sadly is not the kind of brace I need for my right hand otherwise I'd just buy one to match.

(I am really glad I don't have to sleep in any braces currently, because when I did I mostly just whacked [personal profile] lysimache in the face. Which was not good.)

I'm still finishing watching Rome, myself. Perhaps then there will be Spartacus.

I kept meaning to say - thank you for making me a cover for my birthday podfic :) every time I listen to it I'm happy that it can be illustrated from canon. OH DUCT TAPE EPISODE.

I didn't know where or how to thank you, so I'm just leaving a comment. Thank you so very much for the code =)
