Haven't posted much lately outside of song memes, which allow me to check off the “participate in social media” box, but doesn’t feel especially interactive. And I want to be someone still posting here, I want to be reflecting on my life in the particular way I do on livejournal (even though it’s thru dreamwidth now).
We got a dog. A medium-sized brown dog with a pit bull head, a shiba inu tail and a mutt body. I’ll call her Eagerness. (for a poly problem lols, it’s hard to find a name tag with space for three phone numbers) The cats are understandably pissed, Skitterypoof seems to have written off the first floor of the condo entirely. She curls up on the couch beside us, she runs in the morning with Abundance, we’re trying the crating thing. She’s eighteen monthsish old, so still has enough puppy to make me perpetually anxious, but I’m hoping I’ll eventually chill.
Being unemployed is becoming more real, and easier and harder. I’ve conquered the local libraries’ byzantine e- and audio-book systems and have been devouring fiction of all sorts. I’m finished with the antibiotics that kicked my ass which were prescribed to treat the sinus infection that was kicking my ass (and the inevitable yeast infection treated as well)
I’ve made a gigantic vat of tomato sauce, which I turned some of into lasagna. I’ve made pasta with chickpeas and hominy, something I affectionately call tortilla mess (though the internet claims it’s healthy mexican casserole) and waffles. I’ve made chocolate chocolate cake (a chocolate cake, with chocolate buttercream frosting, covered in chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate shards). Light had a birthday, Peter Mulvey’s coming to my house to give a concert, I’m getting NC tattooed on my wrist on Friday (and then attending a family gathering with my first un-hideable tattoo on Sunday). I’ve organized my to-read list within an inch of its spreadsheety life, I’ve seen movies in the theater, I’ve mostly kept up with the dishes, I’ve gone to the gym more frequently, and I’m feeling better rested and much, much friendlier.
We’ll see what happens next. It’s going to be an adventure.
