Rain!


THUNDER AND LIGHTNING! SQUEEEEE!!!!

Yup - it rained last night, and in the wee hours of the morning I caught flashes of lightning and the sound of rolling thunder. T'was quite fantastic, as rain is the only thing I miss about the east coast.

Oddly, it was the lightning that broke me out of my depressed reverie. When I go to bed my mind starts going, and, well, let's just say that Q gave me things to think about last night and I was horribly, horribly depressed (like near tears sad). I laid there thinking and thinking and thinking and getting more and more into it, when the room lit up and the noise came through and I jumped up and turned off my fan and looked outside and enjoyed it for a little while. Then I went back to bed and fell right asleep.

Traffic, of course, was horrible this morning. No less than four traffic lights out on the way to work. I couldn't imagine this town in the wake of, say, Katrina.

And yes, I'm feeling better.

A friend once asked me, "Why does everyone make fun of you?"

My answer was, "Because I allow it."

However, that doesn't mean you have to all the time, especially when I'm actually trying to be nice, and even more especially when I tell you I'm not in the mood.

Just sayin'.

Regarding the situation with jkusters


As some of you are aware, there's been more than a fair bit of turmoil in our household over the past year and a half or so. Recently my housemate, John (jkusters), and I finally sat down to talk through some of the issues at hand, brought about by his post a few weeks ago about unfriending me.

We had a productive discussion the following week, but not without going over what's happened over the past many months. Since I felt very hurt by some of the things he posted and I feel I was portrayed inaccurately (and he agrees now that I was), I asked him if I could post about our discussion to give a sense of things from my side of the fence, and he said that would be fine, and that he would link to it from his LJ (which I'm sure is what brought at least some of you reading this here now).

I realize not everyone is interested in all the details, but for those that are, and especially those that heard only John's side of things and judged the situation without hearing "the rest of the story," I encourage you to read what I have to say (and thank you for doing so).

A happy Tuesday


Today ended nicely. After work I went on a little shopping tour - personals at Wal*Mart, groceries at Vons, and a stop off at CompUSA. Why? They had TiVos for free - a $150 rebate from TiVo + a $50 off sale from CompUSA = $0.00. (I blame urban_bohemian for providing the link the other day.) Plus I got an adapter so I can finally MP3 a few old tapes that never made it to CD, including some homemade ones by the Medians (since Carl never got around to burning them like he's been promising for years).

Plus Q and I had make-up phone sex er, I mean, had a lovely chat and ironed things out. My low blood sugar + his weird mood = one unhappy San Diegan. He was apologetic and made me squee, so all is forgiven and no harm done. He really lurves me! :P

Now, bed. :D
