A Pox On You and Your House.  

Did you know there's a Chicken Pox vaccine now?  Is the Chicken Pox even in other countries?  They're pretty horrible (itchy, scarring, and you can even DIE from them) and now (as of 5 years ago) there's apparently a vaccine that's supposed to prevent them.  A pretty crappy vaccine, evidently, as there were several documented cases last winter and my seven year-old had to have a chicken pox vaccine booster shot that he was none too happy about.  The five year-old had FOUR shots (I missed his four year well-child visit.  Curiously, no one brought that up one of the half dozen times we were in the office last winter for various reasons.) so there was no shortage of drama for me yesterday afternoon.

My husband, after nine years, has decided to start calling me by my given name.  It's creeping me out.  He always calls me by endearments:  baby, sweetie, honey, my beautiful bride, etc.  But in the nine years we've been married, he's only called me by my first name when he's been angry with me.  I laughingly pointed that out to him the other day, so he's decided to fix it.  With immersion therapy.  Carrie, Carrie, Carrie, Carrie.  (I came before the book or the movie, thankyouverymuch.)  It's driving me nuts.  I literally flinch every time my name comes out of his mouth.  Weird, huh?

With the help of Cinnamon Badge (Ooh.  I forget her LJ name.  Something to do with 60's music, no doubt) I've finished the July podcast.  There are FIVE fics, and they are all happy ones.  Total bliss to record.  It might be the first time I didn't cry while doing a podcast.  It'll be available July 1st  here.  Or you can check out any of the other audio fics I've recorded there.

I DID, in fact, know that that there was a vaccine. My kids got it. Very important since Jay hasn't really been exposed (well -- he got ONE pox when he was 13... but they aren't 100% sure that that was enough - so he coul dget REALLY ill if he gets it).

Funny -- Jay doesn't call me by my name... but now all his friends at work call me 'Jess' because HE does. Though I HATE having people who aren't Jay or my Grandpa (he calls me Jessie) call me anything but Jessica. Hmmm.

And YAY for a new podcast! Woot! ;)

I don't really like nicknames from other people, (usually cause it's 'Carebear' or something equally distasteful) but Nolan's ALWAYS called me by a nicname.

I don't think one pock counts. I hope these boosters work!

You'll love the podcast. I had the best time doing it. It's nothing but GOOD stuff. Happy, funny, fluffy....

I answered there, but I will here, too.:)

I've already uploaded the mp3 podcast to the website. Lyndsie will have to do the rest, as I only have so much control. But if she uploaded it early last month, chances are that she'll do it again this month!

Wheeee!! Podcast! *is excited* Oh, I am so gonna head into uni that day just so I can download it (and it's the holidays), unless the new internet planny thingy that Dad's getting is any better than our current one. Of which I am highly doubtful. *sigh*

I thought the chicken pox vaccine had been around for ages and that my brother got it when he was born. Obviously not. Ok, no. Mum reminds me that he got chicken pox when he was a bub. I must've been talking about it with someone else. OUCH for Ethan and Aaron. I hate shots, although I don't faint or scream and run away like some people I know.

*giggles* My boy only calls me by my whole name like everyone who doesn't know me well enough to call me by my shortened name... because he hates nicknames. I used to hate it, but I've gotten used to it. Still cringing? *looks concerned*

It's only been a week. Maybe I'll get used to it.

Probably not.

This month's podcast is probably the best yet. I think it's my favorite, anyway.

A podcast without tears? *Gasps*
I feel faint all of a sudden.

I think Big N is messing with your mind. I applaud him :P

I know. It's a big step.

I'm sure he's messing with my mind. Undoubtedly. And enjoying every minute. That's just who he is!

I know from experience that the pox vaccine doesn't work. I have had the pox twice. Once when I was four or five then again when I was seven. I was the lucky kid that had most childhood viruses and some that were adult ones like ths mumps that caused my jaws to swell and hurt. As well as the shingles(that's the name for real) which is a cousin of sorts to the chicken pox. They bite even more. They cause pain and itching... As for your hubby maybe he wants something special...

Ugh. Shingles are terrible. I've never had them, but some relatives and friends have. *shudders*

I can only hope hubs forgets about the name thing...
