Punishingly Intricate

I swear I saw a poster in a bus stop that referred to the teacher's pay idiocy.

There was a story on NPR about it a couple of months ago so it has been in the national news. Not that that seems to have made a difference.

I am off today but have a cold! I couldn't even nap properly. Now I'm going to make some plague cookies to take to a party tonight. Because god forbid I let a freaking virus change my plans.

Our wings are not tired.

So, what are people doing tonight?

We live about 1-1/2 miles from our downtown where they have lots of outdoor bands and activities. They drop a ball and have fireworks and such at the tennis center. We were talking about dropping a vehicle this afternoon then walking down tonight and having the truck available to drive home. It's supposed to be about 70 so I'm thinking walking both ways might be a good plan. Or riding bikes.

Staying on the couch and watching tv has a certain appeal too.

I am going to sit on my ass and do absolutely nothing.

DH invited another family over. The adults are ok, and their son gets along fine with my son - but their daughter and mine are kinda non-mixy. Plus they are bringing their PS2 with them.

I wanted mellow, but sounds like I'm gonna get manic. Must stash the Fernet in my room before they show up.

I'm planning on going here for dinner, assuming I can get a reservation for a seating late enough for me to make the drive into Memphis.

Shit's all sorts of different now.

Screw that, Suze.

Stash the Fernet in your flask and keep that in your pocket.

Would need a flask first.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

I'm trying to not go into the ER. I do have an invite to festivities, and the modified socialising I've been doing with my sister here has been kinda successful, but I just don't know.

Last night was supposed to be a strip club outing--got three instructors to come out, including the 18 year old (hence earlier questions), but there was major bailing and most of them came back to my apartment to watch Eastern Promises instead. I made it through 15 minutes of the movie and had to ditch them and go to bed. My sister's still miffed about missing the stripping though.

The oral dilaudid I just took dragged the headache down from a 9 to an 8 or so, but I sorely resent temporary pain relief. I want the effect to be longer than the drug's lifetime in my bloodstream.

Ooops. Post wasn't to be about that.

Maybe I'll just send my sister to the NYE party without me. She's been hitting it off pretty well with the krav people so far. Some of them might not notice the difference.
