Mal: You tell me right now, little Kaylee, you really think you can do this? Kaylee: Sure. Yeah. I think so. 'Sides, if I mess up, not like you'll be able to yell at me.

I question any metric that results in there being more than 80 comedies worse than The Love Guru.

Sorry to hear about the Covid news Dana. At least you have good friends only a door away?

I picked Little Meg up from the vet today. She did not make friends. And got into a fight with her mother almost instantly upon release, though they seemed to be getting along better after an application of wet cat food.

I also got hit with an almost $700 dollar bill, nearly twice what I expected. Instead of the "charming and lovable" discount that Gizmo benefited from a few years ago, Little Meg seemed to qualify for a "get this yowling hellcat out of our kennel!" surcharge.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

I suspect Murderbiscuit incurs that surcharge as well. Although when we were on vacation earlier this month, our petsitter texted an update and said he was "being sweet." We instantly suspected he was possessed by a demon (because, of course, a demon would be sweeter than Murderbiscuit).

Thrive to spite them

Dana I hope you get better quickly.

So there's a new hiccup with going back to work. I was supposed to follow up with the neurologist Tuesday but since I haven't had the FCE the case manager reminded me I should reschedule that. So I did....for June 15th. They have to wait about 2 weeks to get the results. My birthday is the 16th so I assume the week of the 19th will be when I finally return to work.

I also found out the neuro ophthalmologist that I was referred to is booked through December so I need to talk to the case worker but if they can go with an earlier referral the neuro made about just seeing *a* neuro ophthalmologist and see if there is something available sooner, but further away.

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

I think I'm going to go ahead and grant myself the stop-working-two-hours-early that we used to always get the day before a holiday because I am enormously tired and do not actually have anything that needs doing. Naptime.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

At Balticon, and Mr. S is being wild. It’s going to be a loooong weekend.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I guess there's a thread for this, but hey! I just saw in a post on tumblr that I went to high school with a guy from Our Flag Means Death. Black Pete.

Ooh, you are practically a pirate, then! Right?

That sounds right.

As a cowgirl-pirate you should probably team up with a samurai-detective and fight crime.

JZ just screamed for 90 seconds so she's a crazy fan girl now.

Then she cackled like a loon.
