lukewarm intro to 2015

last saturday:

a relatively short hospital visit but then hours waiting for the results

some shopping, pawning ($5 for a monitor, but it's still better than putting it on the street), the iron lady, more mind-bending braid

last sunday:

early night, late deep sleep with weird dreams
theoretically relaxed but stressed to be getting things done

taxi: old-school credit card swiping machine bothers me

pharmacy visit leading to the discovery that there are multiple options in alexis nihon for feeding ourselves (huge sigh of relief) - copper branch and jus jugo juice ftw!!!

tough shopping, walking and good appetites
pawn shop ripoff
almost done with google sheets, too much heroes for my own good

monday:

late night decadence (healthy pigging out until 1am)
endless dreams subject to time changing direction braid-style
a good morning, feeling much better for the first time in weeks
proper cold winter weather

a slow day at work mostly spent figuring out how to upgrade our dev environments

a last-minute lunch post attracting mega-ire that i didn't have time to respond to

meeting gd for shopping, communication breakdown, an evening of synchronized emotional ups and downs
keeping to the comic publishing schedule

tuesday:

hating garbage day, arguing about atheism brought out an intelligent design freak who didn't realize he was arguing with adults.
managing to offend moonflake :(

being in such a rush on my way out that i tipped over gd's breakfast onto myself and the floor which required a change of clothes and a thorough floor clean

a pretty good day at work improving and tweaking the dev environment and it looks like i found the sneaky bug that's been bothering me.

a good chat with the boss before a very cold traipse to the shops

wednesday:

a night of a sore neck, loads of heroes followed by a difficult low blood-sugar night ending in dreams of awkward family reunions and snowboarding (something about not wearing gloves to do something technical)

half-asleep breakfast making
late re-sleep
coffee mission cut short, starbucks and poetry instead then a visit to friends to learn about harnesses and adorable kids and dogs and mutual awkwardness
freezing late afternoon, heroes interrupted by an emergency p.m. mission

new year's downer

2015:

thursday:

an uncomfortable night
a weird moody morning
godmother visit with yin then yang
worst p.m. experience ever, and not because of p.m. although the waiter laying waste to the leftovers i was hungry for didn't improve the mood much

a night recovering in front of heroes, a non-stop wtf-how-stupid-are-these-characters fest

friday:

getting up early to unresolve the previous night's issues, self-education and cold squeaky snow emergency shopping

long, slow day, mostly positive 
pushap dinner with a double waitress fail but still good

nothing night of american horror story and bonzo driving me nuts

"rapies"

saturday:

chilled morning, though i could do without american horror story

cold shopping
hard nap, extra-shitty wake-up
abyss gallery superhero cool
housewarming spilled secrets
smoking taxi

sunday:

late waking up to a discussion about old vs new systems and why all the gatekeeper institutions: music, movies, books, academic publishing, patent law are all operating counter to their intended functions in a digital age.

and the knowledge that i'm slamming tonight and i'm totally unprepared.

post-coffee downtime
