I'm such a sap! Watching A Muppet Christmas Carol and the song with the Ghost of Christmas Present always makes me sniffly. He's also possibly the most wonderful fall-bodied muppet of all time. I know it's too early for Xmas stuff, but I love the music of this one.

I feel better today. Oh, I'm not BETTER, but anything after yesterday is an improvement!

It's been a good day. Lots of fun cooking (and eating, of course), hanging out with Amy and the kitties, watching some football and playing Legos Batman. The leftovers are put away and the dishes can wait until tomorrow. A good day indeed.

I love that I can still be surprised by the most random things. Weeks ago, AJ and I got a free pumpkin from Trader Joe's. It's a big monster, a good 14-15 inches across, but super flat. It's also dead white. So, I just finished hacking it into small pieces (glares at near-blister) to later steam and turn into goodies. It's bright orange inside, with a narrow green layer between the meat and the heavy white rind. Sounds like a cantaloupe, right? Weirder... it totally SMELLS like a cantaloupe! I verified with Amy and she concurred. Many, I can't WAIT to see what it tastes like!

Today has been a shitty, shitty day. I still feel crappy and I lost my new job and Anne MCCaffery passed away.

That said, I have to say how grateful I am to that revered author. Through her, I learned that the character is as important as the setting. She built a fitional world so real I felt I could touch it, but I loved the people of that world just as much. My writing is character driven because Anne taught me that value.

You will be missed, Dragonlady.

I'm grateful to be feeling better, since I'm back to work tomorrow. Wish me luck that my stamina will be better this week.

My grateful is a little fucked up tonight. Quite suddenly I started feeling like shit this afternoon, sore throat and some snifflies. That said, at least it didn't hit on Monday or Tuesday and I have some time to heal before returning to my new job.

Today I am grateful that my new job is so desperate for bodies in the kitchen that my job is probably safe while I get past my wussy stage and can work longer hours without my feet turning to flaming agony.

Oh, and I have the next three days off. **Tosses confetti**

Today, I am grateful to have been sent home early. I hurt like you would not believe!

I started a job today! When I'm not tired enough to cry, I'll talk more about it...

Today, I am grateful for Archive of Our Own. And if I've said that before, tough shit! More of my backlog of tales has gone up and there is plenty more to go, but I love being able to see them in one place, under my control. Yay!

Darnit! I forgot to post; but better late than never. This mornign was a nearly stress free trip of taking AJ to the train station again. We got our quick stops done and got to Tacoma in good order and arrived nearly an hour early. Yay! After some fitful napping, I went to a local sushi joint that was doing open interviews (fingers crossed) and they seemed to like me. Yay again! No luck on my birthday lottery tickets, of which I'm seriously bummed about, but moving on! Oh, and it's dropped below freezing now, brrrrr....

Eeeek! It's Sunday the 13th!

Kidding. So, today started on a sucky note when my klaive (giant dagger/small sword) was knocked over and scared me out of a dead sleep. I've been a bit out of it all day because of that. Got confused on football times (not 10, but 1) but my boys played like true pros and won handily. Not only because the Ravens kept making stupid mistakes, but because my Seahawks capitalized on said mistakes. Whoo hoo! My emotional rollercoaster with football continues...

Pleasantly exhausted after the craft fair. Well, we broke even and a little bit extra (though after gas and food, that is pretty well negate, but that's my inner pessimist talking. Shush!) and met some nice people and got our first taste of real winter. (Brrr!) Now we are watching our fave comedy, Clue, and chillin'. Hope everyone else had a good day!

*sings badly* It's my party and the sky'll cry is it wants to...

Today is my magic birthday! 11-11-11, my 41st birthday. After being up to 4 am with insomnia (and foolishly bringing up Legos Harry Potter) AJ and I hit Value Village for their ginormous Veteran's Day sale. With booty in hand, we stopped by the house for a bit, before we headed out for our local little beach, a fave hangout. Luckily, AJ remembered the bin of glass we've been forgetting to return to the Sound for AGES. Many years ago, I collected sand in an old milk bottle for juju purposes (and to keep candles safe while burning). Some time ago, Leo knocked it down and shattered it. So I collected it all into a bin that has been sitting on the stairs for months and months. I've walked past this thing a hundred times (more?) and nothing has happened. I took it to the water today... and it gouged my thumb. I have been officially blooded by the magicks! Woot! An important milestone to be sure. So, the piece that still had my chunk of skin on it went in first, and we moved further out on the dock to dump the rest. And I washed the blood off (twice) in the water too. So, after that we headed over to our fave grocery store (Red Apple) for my lottery tickets. Since I stupidly forgot cash, I couldn't use the machine and jumped in line. The cashier was finishing up a customer and there was a lady with ice cream between my and my tickets. I internally fretted that I would miss my window, but there was no need. At 11:11 and 33 seconds, my $11.99 (I had the munchies, dammit) charge went through. I also made a mess of inexpensive necklaces for the craft show tomorrow (ouchie thumbs) and got the car mostly packed. Lots and lots of good wishes from family and Facebook, cake and pizza. It's ALL good!

Tomorrow's my birthday! Yay! We will be going to my fave beach, no matter the weather, and buying my lottery ticket and hitting the local Value Village for a spankin' sale and Saturday is our next craft show. Big days!

Today I got my renewed license. I am now an official human being for another five years. **grin**

Oh, how I love reading old stories. After spending far too many hours yesterday putting a bunch of my collection on Archive of Our Own, I know find myself (unsurprisingly) fascinated by them. Helps make up for that fact that I seem unable to write after that first day. Alas!

Oh! And Spotty made me a Pony icon! Squee!

Today I am grateful for Archive of Our Own, better known as AO3. This website is an archive by fans for fans to keep hordes of fanfic alive and well. At first I was 'meh' about the whole thing, but I'm a believer now. It's not a short process, but it's intuitive and detailed. My goal is to get all my saved fic housed there for posterity. It makes me happy.

2322! That's how many words I pounded out today. The new keyboard is a lifesaver!
