    Bad news: my ex girlfriend is sick and the party she was going to throw today has been postponed, and I won't get to hang out with my friends this week

    Good news: instead I'm going to the mall to see the Human Bodies exposition with my brother and my sis-in-law! Time to see some dissection and afterwards buy tea and knitting supplies and then have dinner with my family! :D

    Good news: Saw Phantom at the Pantages. It was amazing. Only freaked out a little at the grill we stopped at because I was seated with my back to traffic and during intermission. Everything else was amazing. Also I wore my binder out and actually received compliments on my outfit! Still got coded as female but at least my clothes were cute. (Also the server at the grill was super cute.)

    Bad news: Broke my toe while fumbling around in the wee hours of the morning getting ready. Didn't realize it was broken until we were almost to the theater and I'd been walking on it (though I noticed it hadn't stopped hurting and my meds were only making it painful as opposed to agonizing). Had to wait until I got home before I could do anything about it. Still hurts like a motherfuck and is all sorts of funny colors.

    Bad news: Because of management shenanigans, I've been pulled away (without being asked) from a job I enjoy to cover for a person on maternity leave in a related-but-not-really field, and now I'm the hideously unqualified safety lead on a huge contract, and it's stressing me out enough to start wreaking havoc on my personal health

    Good news: Because of the stress, I've been maxing out the indulgent self-care, which involves ALL the creative enterprises, and I've been able to feel my art and writing improving, I'm refurbishing furniture in the comfort of my own apartment, and I'm in the middle of three silly fandom cross-stitch projects (two of which are presents, which is just my favorite thing to do for people. Furniture is also presents for any friends who visit me because I'm slowly running out of space to live >_> )

    Bad: Mom came down with some weird vision issues this morning, which was sudden and mildly terrifying

    Good: Luckily she didn't crash on the way to work or anything, and I guess they already figured out the cause. Google says it's not too dire.

    Bad News: Found out that because I work for the county, my boss can't be my reference on housing applications because of liability issues.

    Good News: The specific place I was applying to seems to be fine with having less references than anticipated!

    Bad news (sort of): I need a haircut (it's only been six weeks!) buuuuut I really don't want to fight with the barber again. The barber shop in my small town is owned and entirely staffed by women, which is p cool (it's only two chairs) but they don't want to give me a masculine haircut because they don't want me to look like a “huge lesbian”. (That's a direct quote) I understand that they want to protect me, but I actually AM a huge queer and I am done hiding it and I want a huge queer haircut. Not a pixie cut.

    We're going into town on Tuesday for a doctor's appt (let's hope I don't miss this one too), so I'm going to see if we can stop somewhere and see how much hair trimmers cost. That's probably a better solution. A basic haircut costs $22 anyways.

    Good news: I made a thread about knafeh and now other people are making threads about their food! That's awesome, I'm so glad that caught on. Show us all of your stuff.

    Bad News: My fiance got kicked out of his household, and I can't trust his aunt not to throw away his thousand-dollar board game collection and our homegoods while he has to scramble for housing, despite her promising not to. He's spent a long time working on it, and many of his games are out of print releases or connected to people he knows directly in the board gaming industry. Even so, he doesn't want to look into a storage unit over this.

    Good News: My fiance is now coming to live with me and my family, and will be helping me more in the househunt, as well as giving me access to info that I can use to help him easier. Also, we can cook together, which should help us both stabilize our weights and save money, and I have someone around who likes to eat my cooking again without complaining about the spices or vegetables used.

    I definitely had a Bad News Good News day last Wednesday. I woke up to:

    1. Mammogram today.
    2. New kitten today.

    Talk about mixed feelings! LOL

    Both mammogram and kitten are perfectly normal. :)

    Probably not! However, I once raised the kitten from hell--the smartest and most ill-tempered and unhappiest little creature I have ever known. If we were in the same room, she was biting me. Non stop. If we were not in the same room, she was throwing herself at the door and crying. Non-stop. And she had intractable diarrhea. I lived in the House of Poop.

    This kitten is a happy, healthy, sweet-tempered little thing who a kitten.

    Bad news: not sure if super light period or spotting. The latter means Pregnancy Test Time because I am super regular.

    Good news: horrible anxiety turned out to be caused by forgetting my pill and was mostly fixed by taking it.
