Jayne (Husband): Oh, I think you might wanna reconsider that last part. See, I married me a powerful ugly creature. Mal (Wife): How can you say that? How can you shame me in front of new people? Jayne (Husband): If I could make you purtier, I would. Mal (Wife): You are not the man I met a year ago.

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

Have fun, Noise!

Happy Tep day! Go go pharmocotherapy!

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.

Migraine is all gone (god bless Ubrelvy and my insurance that pays for it), and teeth are cleaned! I might just loaf around in the air conditioning and watch trashy TV until it's time for sushi.

Have a great trip, ND and Pix!

Yay for the good drugs! Loafing around watching trashy TV capped off with sushi sounds like a most excellent plan. Enjoy!

Happy birthday, Steph! I'm glad the migraine went away so you can enjoy the rest of it.

Good plan!

Emmett & Kalena are headed to Wisconsin tomorrow morning for a wedding where Emmett is a groomsman.

Jon B. is in town this week, and he's officially the First Guest at the Garden Apartment.

JZ and I are about to commit to a dresser which would make a significant difference in the number of boxes lying around awaiting unpacking.

Matilda is the only one who's really in a groove in the new house, as she's got her Fancy Bedroom squared away, and is working every weekday as a camp counselor. (Though we'll be disrupting everything next week when we paint/wallpaper her room.)

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

Timelies all!

Happy Birthday Steph!

Thanks for the update, Epic. It is good to hear that treatment is going pretty well. Yeah, the surgical drain is super annoying, and alas it varies widely from person to person how long it takes to be done with its usefulness. This too shall pass!
