I got to see my shieldbrother Bob, his wife, Flora, and their little one, Wolfe today. It was nice to see them. A lot of time was spent reading to little Wolfe and talking about nerdy stuff.

I picked up my meds after work. I was going to make dinner, but Fen had an evening engagement so I picked up some tacos and headed home.

I’d metaphorically kill for a good Granny Smith Apple and some caramel or peanut butter. Or some grapes and cheese. Just… charcuterie fixing in general seem to be the craving. That and murder shows.

Oh man was today a blast. Not only did I get all of my laundry done, I got to introduce my housemate Fen and their girlfriend Kimmy to an old nineties movie I loved called Surf Ninjas. The premise of the movie is just as goofy as one might think from the title.
But it was brilliant. And so much fun. And they both seemed to enjoy the campy humor.

So, after a scan six hours or less of sleep, I took J and Bill6 to the airport this morning. I managed to avoid napping the whole day somehow and got three loads of laundry done.

We had a jarred curry sauce over Morning Star Farms fake chicken tonight. Fen made it with some peas and carrots and served it over 90 second rice. It was really good. I added too much hot sauce and made my nose run though.
Speaking of hot sauce, I wore the first pair of Taco Bell socks today. They were great!
Work went…okay. There were two tubs of mail to process so it took me over two hours to scan everything in.
When I got home, though, I had a Christmas card waiting from both Papa Ben and Pop Tom as well as from my friend Savvy! She sent the cutest Grinch card and wrote a very sweet message inside.
I haven’t gotten any writing done, unfortunately. I was in too much pain after work to focus on writing. Or reading. Or crocheting for longer than ten minutes at a time. So it was a few episodes of Murder, She Wrote and a bowl of frosted mini wheats for dessert.
My brain is fried. I’m going to go read for a bit, if I can.
Take your meds, folks.

Boy was today a wonky but enjoyable day. I didn’t get much sleep last night. Just couldn’t shut down until after four a.m. I’m hoping I can bunk down here in the next few. I’m tired.
But a good tired.

So, I’m up visiting J and Bill6 for the weekend. We started a small Dungeons and Dragons game this afternoon. I’m playing a half-elf, city born,thief/rogue that would rather be sailing than anything. Her name is Eldoris Denton. Her ma is human, her paternity an unspecified elf. It was a hoot.
