Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

How awful.

"Against all evidence, I keep thinking the assholes are outliers." - James Holden

It really is horrific. I know living sheltered with security must suck, but so does getting stabbed! It sounds like he is in pretty bad shape.

Off to see my SIL in NJ this morning (after the gym). Just overnight to see a play in the park near her then back tomorrow. More excursions more often is my new objective.

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

I am sort of working. Logged into the work laptop while IT takes it over remotely to update my Citrix receiver. He didn’t have time to do it yesterday and I won’t have time Monday so here we are. And it looks like he dl’d the wrong one yesterday so first we will get another version…

I did my morning pool stuff, ate lunch, and now I'm guessing we're about to do the crossword.

I have a game night elsewhere tonight, so I will go buy some sort of savory app to take (don't feel like making stuff), and then I think chill and read until we leave.

Tomorrow I will work some.

Update did not fix my problem, alas. Neither did switching browsers to Edge.

Freeze me like a popsicle and watch me melt

I got groceries and now I need to do laundry. The weather is perfect, so I might loaf in the hammock for the rest of the day.

Tim and his brothers have been sorting through stuff at their parents' house so they can empty it so that it can be painted before it gets listed (unless a private sale happens). I've been staying home and letting them do their brother thing, so I've been binge-watching Roswell and making oven nachos. Tonight is season 3 and, instead of nachos, sushi and probably a lot of olives and feta cheese.

That sounds great, Tep!

IT is giving up until Monday. Bah. I’m going to lie down and read for a while.

Oh! Plus black figs are back at Trader Joe's, so I'm going to roast some with goat cheese and a little balsamic vinegar. Is it dinnertime yet?

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

Timelies all!

This has not been a great trip for us. Mr. S has not had a good night yet, and poor Gary hasn’t gotten to see much of the con. It doesn’t help that Mr. S woke up at 6:30 this morning.

The guy arrested for attacking Rushdie has pled not guilty. Seems strange if this was fatwa thing, but I could be thinking about it all wrong. All this violence because of The Satanic Verses has always been so hard for me to understand, it seemed like a pretty mild book when I read it.
