ironymaiden: (have it all)
not everything has gone to plan this week: some stuff i talked about in a couple locked posts, and then there's the way Powerball didn't draw my numbers*.

  1. i got C to go kayaking with me on Saturday. that was nice, even when he was being a butt.



    he's agreed to go out with me again tomorrow.


  2. i did some stuff that was hard for me, and fell on my face, but i'm better for it.


  3. i finally went to see The Big Sick with Knitta D. it was a good day to talk with her, and i was glad to see it with someone who wouldn't be triggered by all the medical stuff in it. i think that helped me keep from being upset myself. (that said, [personal profile] philotera and [personal profile] scarlettina and probably C are not allowed to watch it.) ultimately i liked it, although i felt it had been oversold by the time i saw it. Holly Hunter is brilliant, as pretty much always.


  4. the latest episode of Restaurant to Another World has a mermaid!


  5. i decided to give Kesha's Rainbow album a try. it's good, and benefits from being listened to as an album - stylistically it ranges from country to get-up-and-shake-yo-ass dance tunes. pop goodness.


and oh yeah, there was an eclipse. we had something like 92% here. that was enough to see twilight and feel a rush of cold. it was delightful to be in a group and hear the waves of reaction as new people stepped onto the deck and put on their glasses for the first time.



*say what you want about the lottery, but when there's a draw in the hundreds of millions, we buy tickets, and for me they're worth their cost just for the fun we have building castles in the sky about what we would do with the money.

years ago, a friend gave me a rock with a piece of string wound around it. i've carried around ever since. it sits on my desk at work.

this morning, i wondered if having it reduces my ambition.

they use humans like chess pieces in a game where they haven't planned a single move ahead.

i sometimes wonder if Heinlein was right. at least then i could feel better about sacrificed pawns.

ironymaiden: (garlic being right)
William Shakespeare

I shall despair. There is no creature loves me;
And if I die no ironymaiden will pity me.

sometimes i think friendships are more about the bad times than the good times. it's not about who you like to have a beer with, it's about who you call when your cat dies. (hopefully it's the same person, ne? ) i like to bear weight and know that some day i'll be able to lean on that person in return. acts of service - including quiet listening, hugs, and tissues - are a big way that i express affection. i enjoy the attention that is spent on me in confidences, and i do my best to honor it.

not every person in your life is like that. not every friendship goes there. that's okay. but don't assume that letting me know you're having a bad day is going to ruin mine.

(and it's not really about you, dear, but you do have me thinking about this...)

reading about grubb_street's voyage home reminded me of the last time we came home to snow (less than this) and a ride who abandoned us at the airport. hard to believe that it took me a few years to wake up.
