I’m damned determined for this week to be better than last. So shall it be. It’s going to be an awesome week and I’m going to rock it out.
I was going to read more of The Mermaid’ Daughter tonight. It’s an odd read about a soprano opera singer, Kathleen, and her girlfriend Harry. Kind of a re-telling of The Little Mermaid. It’s told in switching first person point of view. It’s got an interesting “other”, thus far unnamed character that refers to itself/themselves in the plural sense, but I’m not yet sure what it is. There will be a review here and on Goodreads when I’m done.
Today is Phoenix’s twenty-fifth birthday. It’s so odd. I can remember the day he was born. I wanted to stay home from school but my adults wouldn’t let me, if memory serves correctly. He’s gotten so… big. Grown so much. When I was up there in 2019, we actually shared a hard beverage. He had a beer and I an alcoholic apple cider. It was, and still is, surreal to think my brothers are all old enough to drink.
Mal turns twenty-nine next month. I’m hoping to go down and see them the weekend before. Hopefully that will pan out well. And then Baby Bubble’s birthday is on the twenty-fifth of next month. I hope to see them again for that, too.
I spent most of my day up at J and Bill6’s place. I learned two new board games this weekend: Clank and Quirky Circuits.
I’m going to go read before I crawl into bed for the night. J and Bill6 lent me a copy of “Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff”. It’ll be an interesting read!
Tomorrow will be brighter days. So shall it be!
And take your meds, folks.
