    @Beamish: That's horrific. My thoughts are with you and your nephew.

    Daniel Parmertor, 16, has passed away after from the shooting today. My nephew Brandon was one of his best friends. Sorry to keep bringing this down.

    @Beamish, no need to apologize. My thoughts are with you and your nephew.

    I have a fuckton of work to do in the next 2 weeks. I don't know how I'm going to manage it. 3 studio classes is proving to be a bit much. I don't get credit for my most stressful project, but doing it means I get half my hotel and plane cost back for a trip that's coming up. And that brings us to...
    Flying in to New Orleans for a print conference 2 weeks from tomorrow. First time there. Will be there on St. Patrick's day, which sort of seems a waste since I don't drink, but it should be entertaining nonetheless. Also have a friend visiting next week, and plans mostly include cuddling and making out and stuff, so that should be fun. And I got a letter today that I've been waiting for for the last 10 weeks or so.

    @Beamish I'll be praying. *internet hugs*

    Good god, @Beamish, that's tragic. No child should have to deal with that kind of event. I'm so sorry.

    Hey @Flecky, where you at, yo?

    @Trini - It's not my lease, and it was filthier than this when I first arrived, cochroaches and all. I'd rid the place of them by... y'know... keeping things clean... but that's not the way my roommates want to live. So, ok then.

    @Taphead - Hoorah! There will be outings!

    @Government Spy - good luck tonight, man!

    The Yay:

    Due to punding headache, I didn't leave the house on Friday night until after 2am, didn't meet up with my friends until 4:00am, and then suddenly found myself in a car with seven others on our way to buy forties and find a boat. We parked in the middle of an urban wasteland, walked down an alley, on a maze of wood planks, and then ... to a private party on a decrepit tugboat on the water somewhere in Brooklyn. The main room had a dj booth and dance area, and by some couches you could see a lit fireplace. We partied there until past dawn. It was amazing.

    Saturday evening I was treated to see Shatner on stage, and it was awesome. The man still has it, y'know?

    The WAH!

    I have a cold, I have cramps, I have headaches. I think one of my friends is far too interested in dating me, and I think another might be slightly stalking me?

    Also, a few moments ago i got a fb IM from a woman my mom went to art school with 25 years ago, telling me how much my mom misses me.

    I tend to get frustrated at these instances, because really, there are a great many excellent reasons I don't keep in contact with my narcissist mother (Picture a combination of both female leads in Arrested Development, the mom from Spanking the Monkey, and a smidgen of Mommy Dearest). This happens, from time to time; someone from my mother's sphere of influence will get taken in by the sad puppydog eyes and BINK! there's an email from someone I've not seen since I was 8, telling me how very sad my mom is.

    For this, I call upon my internal voice of reason manifested as Admiral Ackbar (as played by Samuel L Jackson):
    "It's a TRAP, motherfuckers!"

    @Beamish: Dreadful on all counts. Words cannot do this justice.

    Forgoing my own Boo/Huzzah/Applause as a sort of moment of silence.

    The Boo:

    The goo, the snotty glue that fills my head i has manflu. And i am not happy about it, especially the bit where my head feels like it's going to explode every time i sneeze. There are probably more important things to be unhappy about but for the time being this is all i can think about. Uuurrhh! Leave me now! I die!

    The Hurrah:

    KK's birthday celebrations were a great success and she was most pleased with her uke. Life in general is good and the manflu does appear to be slowly receding, with luck i may just survive.

    The applause:

    Oldhat - Stick at it, things are changing, loneliness is a bugger and i hope it soon gets swept away for you.

    Brittanica - Weird headspace? Memories? Yes, it's not difficult to drift off into melancholia but you're right, gone is gone. Your Dad sounds like a very sound man, onwards to the future and the new dawn of the Nashville industrial electro country scene. Or something.

    Everybody - Stay strong, stay bright, stay sparkley and stay well away from big hairy snotty sneezy things, they are infectious and carry the plague.

    Right, i wanted to write more but i'm struggling with a head full of doom snot, my poor little brain just wants to shut down. Time to crawl back to bed and die.

    @ Beamish: You have my sympathy, there is too much misery and not enough joy in the world, i wish i could do more to change that.
