Exciting News! Oded Fehr Fanfic Archives

Weaver Of Dreams and Land Of Dreams will be imported to Archive of Our Own (AO3) via Open Doors project. This is because the software running the two archives, eFiction, is very outdated now and not really supported anymore. Open Doors is the best way to make sure the stories are safe for the future. I will work with Open Doors to import all the stories, and will continue as the archivist even going forward πŸ˜€

The two archives will be combined into one collection during the importing process, and the new URL is http://archiveofourown.org/collections/weaverofdreams

Game Of Thrones 4K/UHD Screencaps Complete

4K/UHD screencaps from all Game Of Thrones episodes are now up! :mrgreen: 

As I said before, I’ll keep these up for as long as I can but it’s a huge site (211GB) and fills up most of my hosting plan’s disk space, and I may need that disk space for my other sites at some point later on. And also, I don’t really want to have a huge site anymore now that I’ve gotten rid of all the other huge sites I used to have. Also, if there’s a server disaster I won’t be reuploading these! I just wanted to share these caps with others so here they are!

I recommend downloading what you want as soon as possible, and you’re also welcome to upload them to your own site – just credit me and So Obsessed for them πŸ™‚

COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Picture from Pixabay.

Thought I’d post my experience with the COVID-19 vaccines now that I have gotten both doses.

I belong to the first medical risk group, and got my first vaccine (Astra Zeneca) in February, and the second last Wednesday (Moderna). Today is Tuesday the next week. I’m in Finland.

  • The Astra Zeneca only gave me a very slight sore arm for about 1,5 days. Nothing else as far as I could tell – I have chronic migraine/headache every day so I can’t say for sure if it gave me a headache or not, but I don’t think so because there was no headache that differed from my usual in the following days.
  • I had the following reactions to the Moderna vaccine starting last Wednesday (the vaccination day) through yesterday:
    • Chills and hot flashes on Thursday
    • Slight fever Thursday through Saturday
    • Very sore arm Wednesday through Sunday (bad enough that sleeping was uncomfortable for three nights)
    • Small slightly swollen, red circle on the injection site Friday through Sunday
    • Headache through Thursday to Saturday. I know this because the headaches responded a lot better to medication than my headaches normally do.
    • All in all: I felt sick for 2 days (Thursday and Friday), kind of sick for 1 day (Saturday), and then only had a slightly sore arm on Sunday and Monday anymore
    • Today I’m back to normal

I can’t remember whether I had any bad reactions when I was a kid but this was the worst reaction I’ve had to a vaccine as an adult! I usually just have a somewhat sore arm for 2-3 days, so this was a new experience for me!

The Friday Five for 14 May 2021

Picture from Pixabay. Answers to today’s questions at The Friday Five @ DW.

1) Have you ever done something awful to your hair? What happened?

When I was in my 20s I used to home dye my hair for many years, usually some shade of red/reddish brown. But one time I decided to dye it black. I’m very pale, and have very light natural blond hair and I looked just awful with black hair, so then I bleached my hair and dyed it red. Which came out okay, which I’m stunned about now years later! But yeah, I wouldn’t home dye my dark colors myself anymore, I think a trained stylist can better tell what shade and color temperature will work best for me if I want to dye my hard dark. But also, these days I prefer that it looks more like natural color than bright red, as an example πŸ™‚

2) Conversely, at what time in your life have you looked your best?

Bodywise – before my boobs grew in when I was around 10 years old. Hairwise – well, now actually. I’m very happy with my short hair at this time πŸ˜€ Actually, when I’ve looked at old photos of myself, I’ve always looked ok although I’ve never felt it about myself as I look in the mirror. Normal, clean, neat, put together, dressed appropriately for the occasion. I’ve never been pretty or thin so I’ve been trained to think by society that I don’t look good when I look in the mirror, I only see the negatives. It’s only years later when looking at photos, I think I actually looked fine!

3) Do you have a favorite article of clothing? Tell us what and why.

I love the knee length beach dresses I bought last year – the material is soft, and it helps me keep cooler when it’s too warm or a heat wave. I’m wearing one now because we’re having the first summer days this week! Not a heat wave hot yet, but about as hot as I can handle confortably (so around 18-20 Celcius). I also love a bunch of shirts I bought last year, same model but different colors/patterns. I hate clothes and shoes shopping and don’t care about modern fashion (I love women’s pre-20th century fashions, always have and would love to be able to try on some of them!), so pretty much everything I wear is my favorites because I only have a few of any given thing and I’m rather picky about colors/patterns/how it sits on me.

4) Confess the worst fashion trend you ever succumbed to.

I never know what’s trending in fashion so I’ve no idea! Except maybe that 1980s perm hair that was always sort of frizzy no matter what I tried to do to it?? Those look horrible in photos now, both on me and everyone else.

5) Are there any clothing/fashion trends today that you simply don’t understand?

I’ve no idea what they are all called but I see a lot of styles on people around town that *I* think looks ugly on them… like too tight shirts that looks like it’s 5 sizes too small but I guess is fashionable because so many people dress like that. One thing I don’t understand and hate is wearing sports clothing when you’re not doing sports…. but that’s because I loath sports and don’t want to be reminded of it. I think all sports clothes look ugly, no matter who’s wearing them and how. That’s clearly a me problem, though!

Health Update

  • Got my second COVID-19 vaccine today! First one was Astra Zeneca in three months ago in February, this second one was the Moderna one. Didn’t get side effects apart from the usual sore muscle in February, soon I’ll see what happens with this one!
  • Saw a neurologist last week because my migraine symptoms have changed – they’re often in a new place now, and in February, I had the very first aura I’ve ever had. So far it’s the only time. We’re gonna try to bump up Propral (depends on whether I can handle without fainting because if affects blood pressure) to see if it helps. If not/not enough, we have a plan in place to try Aimovig, the biologic, starting in January. I have to keep a detailed migraine diary the rest of the year to make sure I qualify for Aimovig.
  • So I’m cautiously optimistic because Aimovig, but it’s also it’s my last hope as it stands now – if a biologic doesn’t work, there’s nothing left to try and only maybe menopause can improve my migraines then.
  • Having problems with Ferritin since last summer. Started taking iron in November by January the ferritin had got a little better, just about as much as could be expected for 2,5 months. But in April’s labs, no change from January  πŸ™ I’m so damn tired all the time, I’m starting to run out of patience with the shitty ferritin!
  • Applying for disability retirement again, my doctor already sent it the doctor’s thingy (can’t remember the word…) needed and now KELA just needs an application from me. I filled it in online, but need to write up a txt file too because all my illnesses and their various effects were too much for the allocated number of characters allowed in their online forms. Gonna do that tomorrow or day after. I do love that this can all be done online – the last time I applied I had to download a pdf, fill it in and then either upload it via the message center along with an extra txt for the same reason or print them and send via snailmail. Now the application itself is fillable online too πŸ˜€ 
  • Both my doctor and I think that I probably won’t get the disability retirement now either (they are too strict about it if you are unemployed when you become disabled; it’s an acknowledged problem due to prejudices about unemployed people) but that it helps to build a history about doctors -thingies- showing you are unable to work and applications even if they are rejected. Black on white, medical history and history showing you’ve haven’t improved even with rehabilitation etc. so at some point it’ll get accepted, even if it takes years and years.
  • The 300 days of long term sick leaves will run out at the end of June; if I don’t get disability I’ll have to return to unemployment benefits which is really stupid because in reality I’m not able to work, and that means only extra work for the unemployment agency and more stress for me :_( But there’s no other place for people who run out of long term sick leave and don’t get disability πŸ™
