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.

Lazy vacation is very good!

I am not having soup for dinner; I have a batch of rice on the stove for freestyle rice bowls.

Do you think there is enough lemon in the world to make it avgolemono-esque??

I've definitely done it with turkey stock.

Congrats to Mac on his job!

That’s a lot of stress, Steph. I hope things can get resolved soon.

That sounds like a nice walk, Hec.

Work has been extra worky this week. But it’s cool out, and I have a warm cat on my lap.

I hope our Maritime Buffistas are battened down for Fiona.

My brother just texted me that he talked to the responding officer from last night, and the officer had someone pull the records on calls to the PD from Dad. Apparently last night was the 9th time Dad had called the cops since July. Jesus fucking Christ.

My brother talked to someone from the mental health mobile crisis unit at the PD and someone is going to go to Dad’s tomorrow to evaluate if he needs to be hospitalized. And, honestly, hospitalization seems like the best option.

Tep, I'm so sorry.

I have a puckish side that will not be denied.

Oh Tep. My heart goes out to you.

Oh Tep. I’m glad there’s people working on it but what an awful situation.

I wanted to wear my cowboy boots out dancing tonight. I haven’t worn them in a few years, and have mostly been wearing like, Birkenstocks all summer. Ow. Ow. My feet have gotten a bit bigger, and while I did manage to get them on, and one was just snug, the other one (my formerly broken ankle one, which is now permanently a bit swollen) was tooooooo tight. But I stuck it out and wore them for two hours, and took them off before I had to walk home. Hopefully won’t regret it tomorrow!

It took me a moment to parse this sentence.

Best wishes to all of you!
