[livejournal.com profile] outdatedclocks has pointed out that my lower-back/hip problems, and my leg problems, are probably all related to the issues I have with my feet (lack of arches?). I've been making do with CVS-brand arch support pads, but they're not really enough, and I'd like to be able to do some cardio and upper-body stuff again, which I can't really now since my back hurts alllll the time. I'd been putting off talking to my doctor about it because of my terrible experiences with my last one...even though this one's shown no indication she's suddenly going to go all 'you're lying, you must be sneaking nachos in the middle of the night, fatty' on me. In fact, she'll probably be happy to help me out, since she wants me exercising before I go on T since I have a genetic disposition towards hypertension (dad's been hospitalized for it).

BTW, for those curious about the whole doctor saga, since I've posted it around a few places but not actually here at my main journal I think (since I just realized last night [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom had never read the whole thing)...I submitted the whole thing to First, Do No Harm (excellent blog BTW) so you can read it here (it's so long I don't see a need to copy+paste it here P:)

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom, we might be hanging out this weekend :D or rather, probably are. I am still working out the logistics, I think I'll stay on campus this weekend and take the train into the city. It would mean missing a therapy appointment, but I've skipped weeks in the past (or rather, therapist has cancelled on me) so I know it won't do any damage emotionally or to my comfort level with him.

Okay I really should go to class 6 u 9;;

Soooo Paige is playing Animal Parade, one of the newish Harvest Moon games. (I am still only good at A Wonderful Life, but she got Two Towns for xmas and has offered to let me try it)

I am watching her start the actual plot, which involves rescuing the Harvest Goddess. Apparently nature's power is drying up, and this has some sort of...effect on the people, as well. She says soon people would not be able to live there. Also, children are...disappearing.

None of the characters seem actually all that concerned about the disappearance of their children.

What if they haven't disappeared? What if they've been...hidden? The townspeople have no way of knowing what the Harvest Goddess wants; so if they started to make guesses...out of desperation, since they literally can't leave (the town is on an island, and Paige informs me there is very little wind, so it's difficult to leave the island)...well, TBH, that the Harvest Goddess might require a sacrifice wouldn't be an entirely unreasonable guess.

But what would the sacrifice do to her? To the land that apparently depends on her and this mysterious 'power of nature'?

Well, I was just thinking...not much grows in Silent Hill.

New icon! 8D it's Ash with Charmander's face.

Anyways, I'm baking some chocolate chip cookies today. This recipe here.

Why did it take so much searching to find a good, regular chocolate chip cookie recipe on allrecipes? O.o;

Anyways, I think I might substitute the 1 cup chopped walnuts for more chocolate chips, OR chips of another flavor. Either peanut butter or butterscotch. I figure 1 cup chips is more...overwhelming than 1 cup walnuts, so I am going to cut it to 1/2 cup. Or maybe just add to taste?

Also, one of the comments on the recipe recommends adding some cream of tartar to get a nice cracking on top. I'm trying to decide if I want to do this or not. Hmmm.

Other than that...ummmm...been playing Pokemon a bit again. Mostly just 'polishing my collection' on my Ueberspielen (my HeartGold game, which may be the first cartridge I actually get level 100 pokemon on - currently my team is around level 78 - and complete the national dex on). By which I mean, just grinding to evolve pokemon to complete my pokedex. I currently have 325 pokemon obtained, and am pretty darn impressed with myself :D I also want to note that I faced Red many levels ago - around like level 60-something? - and beat him much more easily than I anticipated.

I bet you all would love a run-down on my team, right? RIGHT?
