Happy New Year!

Could it be? Is this dreadful year finally dragging it’s sad self out the door, hopefully to be replaced by a much better one? We can hope!

I don’t do resolutions. Instead, I look forward to seeing what the new year will bring, and I thank you all for coming along with me. Be safe, and happy new year!

Update – i’m not dead!

Oh my! I just heard a rumor… apparently people are worried that I had a heart attack! I tend to avoid RL content here, but let me reassure everyone here. I’m fine. I had a rough bout, first with a kidney infection, and then with clostridium difficile. I spent about 2 weeks in the hospital, all told, and it wasn’t the most enjoyable 2 weeks, as I’m sure you can imagine. I became quite adept at what I termed IV ballet- the act of unplugging my IV pump and slipping and sliding across the hardwood floor at 3am to get to the bathroom.

So, I’ve lost about 10-15 pounds so far, because the lining of my lower GI tract is gone. It will grow back, however, and yesterday we had a breakthrough with medications. apparently, the vancomycin  to treat the c. diff was making me almost as sick as the initial illness. We’ve switced to flagyl, and all is becoming better in Laynieland.

I won’t be eating much for Christmas, but that’s ok. I should be home with my family, which is good enough for me! So thank you, everyone, for caring. I appreciate the well-wishes I’ve gotten. But I really am ok, and new releases are coming soon!

Happy Holidays from LaynieWear

Come celebrate at Pamran!

pamran.jpgIt’s Pamran‘s birthday, and we’re throwing a celebration! The island opened one year ago, and to celebrate, there’s a week-long hunt with gifts from LaynieWear, Style Your Destiny, and others! Can you find all the gifts?

There will be a party at the Popeye’s Club from Noon – 4 PM with a dumpster diving event. Come by, say hello, and have fun with us!

(Thanks, Teagan, for making this great image. You rock!)

Edit: I was wrong, Teagan didn’t make the image. So whoever did, thanks! 😀

Edit Part II: Thanks, Skinkie Winkler! Turns out she made the image. Yes, I’m a goober.

New Releases, and a SALE!

Finally, a new release! I’ve had this one sitting on my hard drive for 2 weeks, and have just now been able to get it posted. This shrug has clean lines that are reminiscent of the 1940s, and includes 6 buttons and a cute bow to accessorise with.

Also, I’ve marked down everything at my Lemon Island location at least 50% (and some things much more than that!) so if you like LaynieWear, this is the perfect time to shop!

I’ve been tagged!

Man, 2 weeks in the hospital and I come back to find I’ve been tagged! **sticks tongue out at Teagan**

The Rules:

Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I hate needles. Kind of ironic, when you consider I have 2 tattoos, a third planned, and a fourth floating around waiting to be finalized.
2. I go on research binges. I’ll become fascinated by a subject and spend weeks learning as much as I can about it. The most recent ones have been Chernobyl, Japanese history (especially Geishas), and the JFK assassination.
3. I do the same thing with music. I’ll listen to the same CD for months on end, finding something new each time I listen. Currently, I’m listening to Incubus.
4. I used to be a DJ.
5. I played a man in a college play. People believed I was a man, but thought I was gay. 😀
6. I once had sex on top of a mountain in a cloud. Surprisingly, it wasn’t as much fun as I expected. More kind of… damp.
7. I’ve known Teagan for more than 10 years. (Cinnamon schnapps, baby!)
8. I’ve toyed with the idea of writing short stories, or novels.

And I tag…. NO ONE!
