  • This is both sad and hilarious all at once.

  • Was that sunshine I saw earlier today? It's overcast now, but it was actually sunny earlier. And warm. I think summer is ready to come out of her time-out.

  • Wow, after being told by everyone and sundry that 7-0s karaoke night was doomed to be horrendous, it actually turned out to be awesome. It ended up being me, [livejournal.com profile] aersi, [livejournal.com profile] avalon616, [livejournal.com profile] deliriumdeva, [livejournal.com profile] cell23 and we were later even joined by [livejournal.com profile] verbena76, which was an excellent bonus. Much drunken revelry ensued, and it was pretty much agreed upon by all and sundry that it needs to be a regular thing. I see no problem with this.

  • must find a way of resisting warm, sleepy octopus of cuddle in the morning. That or just resign myself to being late every day.

  • I think I'm going to avoid the Pike at least until they finish resurfacing the road and put the lines back in. I had a terrifying moment on the way in this morning where I somehow got wedged between two trucks after entering the Pike from 91. NOT FUN AT ALL. On the other hand adrenaline will wake you up far more efficiently than coffee. That and I know I'm not okay with driving it on the way back because the entire road surface is grooved pavement... yeah, no.

  • I was dumb and had tonight double booked... D: luckily [livejournal.com profile] captainlove was amenable to rescheduling. So tonight I see [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126, meet her boy and hang... tomorrow there will be work, more running around with Cara, some work with Sasha... Saturday [livejournal.com profile] verbena76 and [livejournal.com profile] aersi are attempting to tempt [livejournal.com profile] cell23 and I out to dinner, and I think Sunday will be when [livejournal.com profile] captainlove and I will do Parthenon and kvetching. It looks like I'll indeed be staying through Sunday night and leaving ass early on Monday to get the car back by 1. *sigh* I really don't want to have to go home at all, but I keep telling myself, one more month isn't that long and I still have shit that needs accomplishing before I come back. So... it ain't all bad.

    Adopt one today!

A fair warning and heads up - anything y'all can do to distract me tomorrow will be THOROUGHLY and MASSIVELY appreciated.

So much for saving my mood from the tailspin it was in since late last night... :(

ETA: It's kind of a sick thought... but I think I finally understand why Henry VIII really had Anne Boleyn beheaded. That or I've been watching way too much Tudors lately

You know, when I posted my SOS to the world earlier and pleaded for distraction I really wasn't asking for Michael Jackson to drop dead. Holy shitballs, batman! I don't even know how to wrap my mind around that one. I mean, snark and cynicism aside (and there is plenty of both, some of which I admit to chuckling at), the man was a perfect storm of talent and tragedy. And as someone who grew up in the eighties/nineties... Yeah. Understanding what a force of nature this guy was back then almost defies explanation, and even then it's not the whole picture. My siblings are all about the same age as Michael. They literally grew up with the Jacksons. I can't even fathom what today's news must mean to them on that visceral level that mourns lost bits of childhood.

Well, that certainly made for a memorable evening sprawled on [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126's couch. I'm currently sitting in [livejournal.com profile] cell23's driveway, watching the heat lightning and the stars and just marvelling at both the day's events and the ways life works out in the most unexpected fashion possible. The air is charged and warm and a project is pushing its way into my conscious mind. This is it, every moment is a chance to begin anew, one must merely take it. And tomorrow? Fuck tomorrow. It's just another day.
