This is my new LJ account.  :)  I decided to switch to a new user name that was not so easily traceable back to me.

We'll see if I'm any better about updating this one than I was the last.  *grin*

Hopeful Poison?

Well, I know where Spes came from since I was the one that suggested it, but Abrin?

From Wikipedia.org:

Because no antidote exists for abrin, the most important factor is avoiding abrin exposure in the first place. If exposure cannot be avoided, the most important factor is then getting the abrin off or out of the body as quickly as possible. Abrin poisoning is treated by giving victims supportive medical care to minimize the effects of the poisoning. The types of supportive medical care would depend on several factors, such as the route by which victims were poisoned (that is, whether poisoning was by inhalation, ingestion, or skin or eye exposure). Care could include such measures as helping victims breathe, giving them intravenous fluids (fluids given through a needle inserted into a vein), giving them medications to treat conditions such as seizure and low blood pressure, flushing their stomachs with activated charcoal (if the abrin has been very recently ingested), or washing out their eyes with water if their eyes are irritated.

Well, Hopeful Poison wasn't deliberate, but I like it!

For those who wonder, the Wiki pages Ahmie is referring to are:

Thank you baby. Yes, I know its you. :)

btw, for the rest of you, I opened this up to anonymous comments so my real-life friends don't have to all sign up for LJ, but if you leave an anonymous comment, please remember to sign your name, so I know who you are!

Pregnant :-P

Tomorrow makes 29 weeks. Only 11 theoretical weeks to go... but this one better be at LEAST a week early, if not 2 to 4. That's still full term, but less time with my hips going totally psycho. Miriya is very active, and resents that my pelvis encroaches on her personal space when I sit :-P

Miriya. That's really pretty! Its pronounced like Maria, right? Or close at least? I bet Cora is really excited. Once Tommy and I are settled in, we'll have to make a plan to come visit you. With tax season starting it may be after the baby's born, but we'll see. :)

Mee+ree+yah - like Miriam without the M at the end. De picked it.

Yes, Cora is very excited. She's been petitioning for a sibling for years, of course. We're trying to get the house ready. Heh. We toured the Prince William Hospital Birthing Center yesterday afternoon. They built a new one like 5 years ago, so it's not the same one where I had Cora. Still quite nice, but with a few more features, bells, and whistles.

Oh, and love all the SG:A icons :-D

The name sounds lovely. :)
