    That said: OH MY GOD IT'S SO GOOD TO HAVE AIR CONDITIONING YOU GUYS

    I mean, I wasn't too horribly off, I had a box fan pointed at me and the cold baths with books and music were actually very nice and I wonder why I don't do those more often, but for the most part I have spent the past week or so wilting miserably like some delicate fussy orchid and now I CAN THINK AGAIN

    I CAN WRITE STUFF AGAIN

    I have such stuff to write. :stare:

    Also my cat is so much happier. My poor fluffy baby, she was hanging out pretty much constantly in the bathroom where the tiles were cooler, and I caught her with her mouth open a couple times--not outright panting, but on the verge of it, but no protruding tongue or glassy eyes or foaming or anything like that. The AC has been on for about an hour and a half and she's already settled back into her "let's follow Aud around the house depending on where she sets up shop" thing again. <3

    Blaaar, am I doing Kintsugi wrong? I have threads I have watched, but then I don't get any notifications on them for awhile and it turns out there have been updates and I just haven't been seeing them. And when I go check on them, I get updates again for a brief while and then it fizzles out again. Am I missing something? Arrgh. I'm sorry if I missed things, folks!

    Meanwhile oof yesterday was a lot. I had hopes and dreams to go walking this morning but I woke up and my whole body was sore and flarey and so I just turned the sleep alarm off and went back to bed. x_x It's kind of a drag, I absolutely love stormy weather but so often it makes me feel all wadded up like one of those styrofoam cups they send down into the deep sea and then bring back up again all shrunken and squished.

    There was a funny thing though--we were done with groceries and picking up barb from where she was dogsitting ellie for us, and ellie gallumphed into the car and did that thing she does where she'll stick her nose under my wrist and flip her head back to get my attention--but I was chugging a can of tea at that exact second and it went all over me XD ELLIEEE

    Also we saw this downtown:

    As far as I can tell, this forum software is just Like That and is very capricious about what it will bother notifying a person about.

    This. I was on another Xenforo board at one point and I seem to recall similar problems there, so idk if it’s something that can be fixed, sadly—it seems to be some weird glitch with Xenforo, if I had to guess.

    nah the alerts popup/timeline tab thing. watched threads only displays the ten most recent threads you have unread messages from, which if you watch as much stuff as i do would require so muhc refreshing it'd break a keyboard probably

    Hee, this 50th anniversary of Space Oddity reminds me: the day after David Bowie died, I joined countless others in being absolutely crushed all day long and then going to sleep struggling with that awful void in your chest you get when you've lost a dear lifelong friend--

    and then I dreamed that Ziggy sat with me and painstakingly colored my nails white with a crayon and we talked about every little thing, and I woke up feeling so much better, like I'd gotten a hug and a tiny secret gift. I'll prolly remember that dream forever. X)

    Meanwhile, without getting spoilery, the entire Whole Cake One Piece arc keeps stomping my heart to little bits over and over and over in the best way, like, WOW, there were things that happened that I could tell Oda's been sitting on for AGES and HOLY CRAP WAS THE PAYOFF WORTH THE WAIT

    ALSO IT TAKES PLACE ON A BUNCH OF ISLANDS MADE OF SWEETS* AND SO I'VE BEEN DYING FOR CAKE AAUUGGHHHHH so yeah if you haven't seen this arc yet be sure to go stock up on some cookies or something or else it's like trying to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory without any candy

    * Places made out of giant cakes and ice cream cones and stuff are one of my favorite biomes aesthetically though, they're just so fun. 8) Trove has a candyland type place where you fight little lollipops and gummyworm monsters and cookie soldiers while rampaging through GIANT GINGERBREAD HOUSE DUNGEONS and

    look, i am not normally the type to advocate for exterminating any species, but i will say that if every mosquito on earth just dropped dead and their eggs died too, i wouldn’t be complaining.

    sorry they’re being extra-nasty where you are! x_x they’ve been pretty bad here but yours sound EVEN WORSE D:

    oh my god I just had the most amazing dream, and I just woke up and wrote it all to my grandma so I'll paste it here for you too:

    Dear Grandma,

    I just woke up from the most amazing dream--I dreamed that you and great-grandma knew all the famous people like Joan Crawford and Bette Davis and Debbe Reynolds because when my brother and I were about three months old, we were babies in a movie, (something with witches and fairies and a big royal ball where the witches were trying to one-up the fairies somehow) and in my dream we were all in a big room full of Hollywood actors who were watching a 34-year-old anniversary screening of it, and you and great-grandma were telling me all kinds of gossip and little behind-the-scenes secrets about the movie and there was all kinds of amusing drama and grudges between actors and pranks and all kinds of things, and then we all watched the movie and my brother and I showed up at the end of the movie as royal babies who would inherit the kingdom, or something, and we were there for like three seconds but everybody in the room knew who we were.

    It was such a fun time. :D

    I love you lots and lots.

    -Aud

    Daahhh, what a fun dream. X) I wish I could remember more of it. The ending bit was awesome, like, the movie ended and everybody was looking at us like "OH LOOK, IT'S THE BABIES" even though we were 34 and all grown up. X) And I wish I could visit my grandma. (And great-grandma even though she passed away when I was seven--I didn't get to get to know her very well, but everyone always said she was always so cheerful and glamorous and visited Chicago a lot and would bring my mom and aunt back all sorts of presents.)
