Miss Mousie has a ton of $10 vouchers for her store and she's emailing them out to everyone. She asked if I didn't mind signal-boosting, so here I am, and this is her Society6 store, where she's selling a bunch of textured, nature, and vulture-themed stuff.

If you'd like a coupon and/or a discount, let me know, I'll PM you her email. Just send her an email entitled "Coupon please!" or something to that effect and she'll get it right to you.

I may get one of those throw pillows I've been eying. Also a print.

Went up to use the bathroom, glanced out the window, and huge-assed black vulture fledgling was peering back at me.

Vulture family was apparently feeling adventurous and chose to sun themselves on the roof outside the bathroom window today. They appeared to be as uncomfortable with this situation as I was and ultimately retreated, dropping down to the deck railing to resume their vulturely activities there.

I hate the mornings I wake up exhausted.

We did move my columnar apple trees from MiL's house and plant them in a line in the front yard last night (well 3 out of 4 anyway; we were getting peered at by lightning, so there's still one in its half barrel sitting on the protected side of the house where we abandoned it). Honestly, planting a few tiny trees is not a good reason for me to be completely wiped out after a full night's sleep.

I'm more inclined to blame 2-3 straight days of re-evaluating and re-plotting a story, and general emotional Nope. And yeah, I am actually still deeply upset by some of my long-time deeply loved artists up and ending their lives one by one. Music's important to me--their music's important to me, but y'all that already know me, know me. I know you're not surprised. I know a lot of you feel the same, too.

Doom!Twin01 is having a gaming convo with W somewhere else in the house, the dining room, probably. Just to add to the fun, the kid talked to a recruiter on the phone yesterday and now we have to take her over to Tinton Falls today to talk to the Marines.

Emailed the job I really want earlier this week, 'cause I hadn't heard anything. The nice HR guy apologized, said they hadn't made it thru all their applicants yet, and he was hoping to be able get back to everyone at the end of this week one way or another? Maybe? He hopes? So I'm antsy about that, too (They interview, hire, and train in groups, and I've been on the other side of that proceedure. If they're actually doing the 6-part interview process I experienced with everyone? Yeah, he's having some very long days right now.)

Recruiter just called to confirm. D!T01 took the oppertunity to get a hookup for her twin. So now they're both going. They're really going outta their way to try me now.

So I reached into the bedside table, and pulled a stone out of the bag. I got back DONO NTOASO - the double praise drum. I gave it a squeeze. Took a deep breath. I'm going to finish my tea and carry the fuck on, and keep trying to give a hand up (or at the very least try not to wound) anyone I meet along the way. Godsdamn I'm fuckin' tired. Could be worse, tho. I've definitely been worse.

We're blasting Hybrid Theory at top volume here in Chaos Central. The Amazon horde is screaming along.

Farewell, Mr. Bennington.

I REALLY LIKED IT, Y'ALL.

I am still processing and capslocking about it to anyone who will listen, but I'm a person who has never cared much about a Spider-Man, and this hit my teenage super hero in Marvel universe buttons just right. It had lots of things that made me laugh, and there were places where my heart was in my throat for Peter, and I just... REALLY ENJOYED IT, OKAY? And OMG Tom Holland is such a cutie, and I loved watching him move. Yay for dancers.

I'm over at MIL's and she's making us watch The Lawrence Welk Show, which is something my grandmother watched when I was a tiny child, and I called it 'The Bubble Show' because there were bubbles at the end of a big band variety show that mostly played jazz songs in the slowest, tamest, whitest 50's way they could, along with an accordion, because polka was important for some reason.

Anyway, there's this couple on, and the lady is singing about how much she loves frankfurter sandwiches, and how she thanks her love for giving her frankfurter sandwiches all night.

And somehow I'M THE ONE BEING ACCUSED OF MY MIND BEING IN THE GUTTER. Mm-hm.

Ugh. Now there's this barbershop quartet on. I hate barbershop quartets. Maybe except for this one. The ginger in this one ('Sonny' Delight?) always has my attention.



Oh good this evil-assed show is over. Now the damn closing theme song is stuck in my head. Uggghggh. Shoot me now.

So I've decided that instead of people talking about which Sex and the City character they are, we should all sort ourselves based on the clones from Orphan Black. Can you imagine? That would be so much fun!

Also, I've realized that all problems in my marriage stem from the fact that mr. muse thinks that Alison is by far the most appealing clone, and yet I am totally a Cosima.
Pulled out of the notebook and tweaked a little. Stone talking about his favorite neighborhood garden, Glenwood Green Gardens, which started up in the early-to-mid '80's in N. Philly and is still going strong. Not sure I remember what I intended this to be a lead-in to, tbh. I have to see if I can find the box with my not-an-outline in it.

The neighborhood was a lot more acceptin’ than I expected about Fen being both this quiet, tall, polite red-haired white guy and a big fuzzy wolfy-lookin' dog. Hel, the people in the neighborhood that said they was scared of dogs would talk to Fen and scratch him behind the ears, after asking if it was okay. I think most folks think he’s just a different kind of faery, and that’s okay, 'cause the other thing would be a lot harder to explain and wouldn’t go over so well.

Patience asked, though. )
