Well fuck. My mom's oldest sister R, who hasn't spoken to her in decades for unknown reasons, is dying. And has been very sick since June but my mom's cousin E didn't tell her anything until just now. Which is pretty fucked up. I mean my mom is greatful that R had someone to visit her in the hospital but...My mom is pretty upset and we were talking on the phone & and she was like "I never expected any reconciliation but I did expect her to live into her 90s so could hate me for longer." :( my poor mommy. Ugh.

She also said "Even if you hate someone, keep talking to them."

I love my mom a lot you guys I hate that she feels like there's something wrong with her bc people leave her out of the loop & stop talking to her for decades without telling her why...

Pineapple Liberte yogurt is really weird. I would say I do not like it, and I love almost all their other flavors. I am going to finish it, because it is food and I am hungry.

Yesterday I went to my parents' house and helped my mom organize and sort and move things around so the house can be put on the market next week. I managed to walk 9 miles worth of steps, and I did a lot of running up and down the stairs so my legs kind of hurt today. But we got a lot done and I like hanging out with my mom so it was actually pretty enjoyable. Also, it turns out if you try to clean a whole pile of milk crates by spraying them with a hose you end up having to throw your clothes in the drier and wander around in borrowed clothes.

And [livejournal.com profile] rwatsoff is going to be showing up soon so we can grab lunch and go adventuring. I am always happy when professional conferences bring him and/or [livejournal.com profile] taliaferro within visiting range.
Last year I made my dad a mix of all the Grateful Dead songs having to do with gambling that we could thing of. He wanted something to listen to while he and his buddies played poker, because he is adorable like that. Anyway...yes. I was raised by Dead Heads.

Anyway...it is so cold I wore my new flannel lined cargo pants of awesome. Even though I will be too hot later on when I am running around a lot.

Uh...I had a nice Winter Holiday Combo Event Extravaganza thingy with my family. We exchanged presents, went to see Hugo (which was adorable and shiny), went out for Indian food, and then came home to light the Chanukah candles.

And then the next day I dragged my parents out to have lunch with Ms. Corrupt and her parents because our parents are awesome and they had never met. Fun was had. Then I tagged along after Ms. Corrupt and her parents and we went to Castle Island (which I had never been too even though I'm from here) and it was cold but awesome.

And I just misread this Groupon offer: Up to Half Off One-Night Stay at Royalton Suites. I was all...um what? Oh! One night stay! I got it now!

I think other entertaining stuff has happened but I can't think of it right now.

Oh, yeah this: I was talking about the BBC Sherlock and I couldn't think of Lestrad's name so I said Detective Inspector Lestat, which...would be interesting, yes? I mean there are already so many fics where everyone is a vampire so...whatever, but I am entertained. Like, I say it to myself and start giggling.

Hope everyone else is as easily entertained as I am! *hugs*

Hey there everybody. Still in Austin. Still having an awesome time. Most fun amazing music so far was Jeremy Messersmith. Ms. Callisto & I sat on the floor in front of the tiny stage and grinned like lunatics. There may have been actual *chinhands*. We tried to stop ourselves from smiling (my face was beginning to hurt, okay?) but it was not possible to do so. So much adorableness! Plus, there was a string quartet and *hearteyes*

(we also quite enjoyed bands Fredrik and Aphasia)

Also met up with a friend from writing camp, which was fun!

In other news, I am too old for this shit and I can't un-dayshift and when I get back to Boston I might be sleep deprived until forever. So...fair warning. (Tonight we will be staying up waaay past my bedtime. Hope I make it. Send good stay-awake magic vibes please.)

Also! Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all that care!

Happy birthday to my sister Lou! Have a great day!
