    Mom: ok I've decided, the washing machine is still working after a month so I'm not going to worry about overflow

    Me: yay! No more sitting in the laundry room!

    The bathrooms: ...

    The bathrooms: ...


    Me: oh yeah it rained pretty heavy today. Oops.

    Edit: I'm so fucking glad we're moving relatively soon

    Bad news: Roxy has fleas :(

    Good news: I'm p sure I caught it early, none of the buggies looked like fully mature adults. And Roxy is???? So good in the bath? She just sat there and sniffed at the water then started purring when I was lathering her up with the shampoo.

    Baaaaad-ish news?: She's still a sopping wet kitten and now she's trying to rub on me and snuggle. No, kitty, do not want!

    bad news: we got home at 3 am last night (this morning?) and I got about 9 hours sleep, so I probably won't be able to sleep for a while. I liked that sleep schedule :( also I'm thinking about gender and brain stuff and it's making me frustrated! and I can't not think about anything because then I might start worrying about the 59 clown emojis my friend sent me.
    good news: I'm home! the trip I was on had fun weather and I saw some really cool landscapes! I have things to do, but they're achievable things, and there aren't too many of them, and a lot of them are fun. also tomorrow I have a lovely rpg. and I can probably journal the gender stuff out, or at least try :0

  8. Acey

    Acey hand extended, waiting for a shake

    Good news: I’ve lost a lot of weight (healthily!) since last fall—I was at 220, and now I’m around 185!

    Bad news: This means that basically all of my pants and shorts have gotten wayyyy too big on me and I need to wear a belt with them 99% of the time. (I do not find belts terribly comfortable, either.) I also don’t know my current size, so I can’t order any.

    Good news: My mom has agreed that when we visit my Papa in Spokane next month, we can go to Torrid and she’ll finance some pants that ACTUALLY FIT!

    Bad: Most of the guys at my local larp are 6'3" or taller. I'm about bicep-height on them, which means my head is right at shield height when they barn-door open, and I get hit in the face with shields every once in a while, which sucks.

    Good: I'm getting a lot of practice fighting people a lot taller than me, so my medium-short ass isn't clueless when facing down the goddamn walking mountains that tend to dominate the tournaments around here.

    keltena putting the fun in executive dysfunction

    Bad news: Random Pain For No Good Reason continues to be a dumb condition and I don't like it. Go ahead, nerves, keep screaming all you want that I'm doing terrible harm to my body by writing ~20 sentences by hand and (*gasp*) sitting down sometimes. I'm not convinced, and I'm not stopping.

    Good news: I helped make sure dinner happened! By which I mean my brother did 90% of the cooking, but I bought the groceries and made sure both the buying and cooking actually happened. Together we equal approximately One (1) Functional Adult! :toot:

    bad news: feeling eh about my tabletop contribution today, I think I was somehow simultaneously too quiet and too loud, and that made my pretty bad roleplaying less tolerable, or at least I feel bad about it. and I miss my friend and I didn't get to talk to her afterward bc she had to go. also I am still sick.
    good news: it was a really cool session!! our 17th c pirate party messed up and TPKO'd in a storm and then woke up in a sci-fi version of their lives, which is a very cool way to do a surprise rpg system change. and that's exciting! and writing it out helps me think, huh, maybe the way to proceed with having an off session... is not to beat myself up about it. also it is probably not too late to get at least one hug in this household.

    Bad news: sump pump broke, so we need to replace it and have the auxiliary pump going, and the sump needs to be open. This is so the sump doesn't overflow and flood the basement.
    Worse news: the sump smells like mud (according to mom; it smells more like dead mouse to me, and either way it's Gross and Awful). Also, dad does not cope well with stress, so he's been flipping out all morning over this.

    Good news: I had a job interview! And I think it went really well! It seemed like I had a good rapport with the hiring manager, and she spent most of the interview on tangents about the importance of wearing your PPE and doing your best to make sure the work environment is safe. If I'm hired or called back for a second interview, I should hear by next Monday.

    bad news: my car failed inspection (which I was 100% expecting) to the tune of "you need a new car before winter" (which I was expecting at some point in the future, but really thought I had more time)

    good news: arrived home from the dealership to two letters telling me Whole Foods owes me about $1250 because I apparently never deposited two paychecks from them.

    Good: I am what people might call 'spoiled for choices' when it comes to coffee, we have a huge variety of coffees; low caffeine, high caffeine, all the roasts and blends and country origins you can imagine. We've also got creamers, syrups, sugars, milks, all the fixings, and even a little electric whisk thing for lattes. We've got several french presses and stovetop pots, an electric pot, and even a Keurig.

    Bad: coffee gives me horrible stomach cramps, kills me with acid reflux, and gives me caffeine headaches. Why must I suffer, I just want the bean juice
