    I’ve been listening to this song a lot.

    The parts between 0:25 and 0:27 where the song goes from icicle cold to microwave hot (and these parts happen multiple times during the song) have been keeping me… somethinged… throughout the week. Energized? I don’t know. But I think about the freezing tink tink tink to kittycat warm that happens with those chords a *LOT* over the last couple of days.Report

    Well, I got a ring of evasion last gaming night so I can make my saving throw even when I fail it 🙂Report

    +1 to not going to Wal-mart on a Friday. I never totally understood that until I moved here – where I lived in grad school, I (a) lived with my parents and so didn’t often need to grocery-shop and (b) we lived in a more-prosperous community with MANY grocery choices, and wal-mart was far down on my parents’ list.

    Then I moved here. Hoo boy. I’d rather go hungry than shop at wal-mart on Payday Friday.


    I expect this weekend will be better than the last three. In a few minutes, I head out to meet up with a friend who lives near Shreveport; she has many cats (and the last time I visited, all those cats decided they loved me and wanted me to pay attention to them and I got climbed all over by cats, which is the best). And we’re going yarn shopping and probably to a used bookstore and I don’t know what all else.

    When my minister called to check to see how I was doing, and I told him of this weekend, he heartily approved of going out and spending time with a friend and doing fun stuff, so I presume this is probably psychologically the best thing I can do at this time.

    Monday, classes start. I think I’m ready. I’m sure there will be moments here or there where I will get over tired and bobble and maybe even tear up a little. (My colleagues all know and all understand; my department is good people. I already pre-apologized if I am forgetful a little – my short term memory is shot to crap right now – or if I lose my temper (my short temper coming back is another distressing development in the wake of this grief) but I don’t want to have to explain to students, because it’s when I explain to someone who doesn’t know why I’m “off my game” that I start to tear up.)Report

    Well, I have a feeling I am going to be spending some time at the vets, as crazy dog has started making some weird hacking type cough sounds. He sounds like a life-long smoker at this point.

    Also, the wife bought a food dehydrator, so this is the new food toy that will preoccupy her for the next few weeks.Report

    Youngest boy returned from his surprise unexpected really wow vacation with his friend Wednesday, so the house has returned to normalcy and the dogs–moreso his dog–are no longer moping around the house or sleeping in our room. He got about 30 seconds to unpack and catch his breath and then it was a driving class yesterday and the first day of school today. I’ve got a contractor lined up to have a look at the GIANT MASSIVE HOLE in the foundation next week, and I’ve got a line on fixing the spout diverter in the bathroom upstairs, so things are sort-of under control. Really looking forward to doing not much useful tonight, Arsenal tomorrow morning, guests for lunch after that, and gaming Saturday night.Report

    I plan on having everything attack the middle of the party for my D&D session. 😛Report

    I have some grading for my online classes. I also have some final touches to make to the OER text we’ve written. And currently my allergies are going nuts (side effect of an unusually wet Colorado summer that’s pulled us out of a 20 year drought), and my eyes are in terrible shape, so I’m not sure how I’m going to accomplish those tasks. I’m trying some eye drops and allergy pills.
    This week will be convocation week, which is a week of meetings before classes start, so it’s my last summer weekend. We might go see _Once Upon a Time in Hollywood_.Report
