    That's awesome, Jehrot! It really is a fantastic shot.

    Re: using direct gov

    Normally I would do it online - but that would mean waiting for the purchase paperwork to hit the DVLA, and I need to get it done faster than that... Post office faster in this instance as I can take my chunk of the V5 with me :-)

    Waiting for the post, waiting for the post, I WANT THE POST!!!!

    Got my shit together enough to make some progress on Japanese home work (god knows if it'll translate to passing the test - it has me VERY worried), play rehearsal was fun (easy on my, I just basically had to show up) and even was together and not too dissipated enough to hit the gym at midnight! Yay 24 hour living.

    I really, really wish sleep were optional. REally. Deeply.

    I'm still fighting against being a chemical cadaver.

    And I love the rain.

    Yesterday did a weird turnaround from being utter shiate to a great evening full of interesting conversations and fun chance encounters. Today has been kind of awesome: got my laptop back from the repairs, Telltale's Walking Dead is waiting for me after I get out of work, I got a windfall of about 350 euros from a freelance gig I thought had been paid already (I'm totally fucking broke so this was \o/) and I'm having coffee for an interesting pal in the evening. Little things that make life all <3

    Didn't wear shoes all day.

    Need hugs for all the rest.

    I volunteered at WFMU today, and got a shout on on the air by the DJ. It's awkward weirdos and funky humans. I think I've found my tribe.

    it was just.... perfect

    Having using dreams off the dreadometer; I don't mind, as it saves me from having to do it in the waking world. When I look at humans with veins I feel like some mutant who has escaped from a freak-show.

    One of us! One of us!

    I don't wanna be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for

    Things are looking good right now. I may or may not have cracked a smile. I can neither confirm nor deny this.

    The test I was freaking out over? I got an A. Funny what you can do when you glue yourself to your textbooks for a weeks straight. Now here's hoping it sticks in my head long term. Still have a final in a month and no idea how to continue studying & practicing my Japanese. Oh well.

    Some breathing room on the financial front. Barely. Really just kicks the can down the road. But better than researching bankruptcy.

    WOOOOO
    Just finished my final portfolio turn in for class.

    thirty-seven pages later, I feel I have successfully argued my way to a solid B in "Rhetoric and the Written Word."

    The other day I was looking at the AvsX free preview comic with my four year old daughter. We were looking at the rosters of characters and she was telling me the names of everyone. When we got to Cable, she said, "that's Cable. He's a tool." I was so proud.

    And yes, I still carry a lot of malice toward all of the people who destroyed the New Mutants in the 90s. Fuck X-Force. Fuck it to hell!

    Does anyone here in our age bracket NOT have a copy of X-Force #1? (probably still in the plastic, even)

    Tomorrow is my first voice lesson in about six years.

    Broken vocal cord and all.

    Can't REALLY afford it, but doing it anyway.


    .... and then during my warm-ups tonight I hit a goddamn high C.

    FUCK. YES. Now if only I could get my lower register back.

    Whitechapel sychronastic: I'm sitting here finishing off reading the rather good Milligan/Allred run on X-Force from 2002.

    Word on the street is that Cable is a tool. A'ight, blud.

    Ugh. Be grateful where you are today. Because of the City of Houston doing street repairs, we have no running water all this morning, and that also means no air conditioning. Today, my housing unit is one big, sweaty mess.
