Soul bonds happen. Most of the time, in the vastness of the world, it doesn't amount to anything. Sometimes it does. Sometimes you meet your soul mate.

Sometimes you meet both of them.

At the same time.

On AO3

Briefly.

1. I don't want to talk about politics right now, but it's one of my biggest priorities, so. Politics. )

2. Things have not been great lately. I can't talk about it without doing warning for a bunch of different things, so I'll just say I'm fine but things around me have not been great, and I'm kind of done with it. Sigh.

3. On a happier note, Nibling seems convinced that ghosts come out at 3 am and has convinced Sister to stay awake with him so he can see. I have also signed onto this adventure, and I'm psyched.

Beeeeeees

So the place I spoke about last entry? Turns out it was completely full of bees. Bees that were on fire. At least four different types of building defect, including sub standard fire safety, which was an excellent thing to read (not) just after the awful tower block fire in London. Despite this, we put in a low offer, which allowed for us to set aside lots of money for upcoming levies, and this was rejected. I am kind of glad of this, because I have never seen a property with so many bees, but E is sad because she really loved the place. And it was a very nice place. We just probably would've burnt to death in it after it fell on top of us and crushed us.

There's another place that we saw last weekend that I think would be a very sensible option. It is not our dream home but, let's face it, we're never going to get that for our bottom-of-the-market budget anyway. It is significantly below budget, and it's right near a train station (and a LIBRARY) and only a few years old so, apart from the defects that go hand-in-hand with any Australian property built after about 2000, we shouldn't have to do a damn thing to it. Worst issue is that it's up 2 flights of stairs, which my body will hate, but it has a sexy kitchen, which should partially make up for that ;p So now we're waiting on the s32 for that property. E is not particularly enthused about it, but I am quite enthused about the extra disposable income that we'd have with half the mortgage we'd get if it were top of budget ;)

I'm still in at PROV three days a week and it's a hard slog, because there's a lot of boring stuff and squinting at awful handwriting to get at the occasional interesting story. But the Ritalin helps and so does playing music through headphones, which also blocks out the noise of the other people there. I need to fiddle with my website to add a research section and hopefully start to post some interesting stories there, because there's a huge emphasis on an online presence these days for academics. To that end, I've also separated out a private twitter because my nonsense about TV shows is probably best kept away from my so-called professional twitter.

Stayed in Warragul last night, so I had my mum-and-Tricky time which was nice. Tricky is a very old boy now so I am trying to get as many Tricky cuddles in as possible these days. I love him so much.

In excellent news, I have just started a new game of Dragon Age 2, my first with a female Hawke. I am also playing as a mage and as an aggressive Hawke for the first time. Not sure yet whether I'll be romancing Isabella or Merril - will depend which works better with my Hawke. Will romance the other one next time anyway :D

Speaking of Dragon Age, it was our first wedding anniversary on Saturday and E got me the Dragon Age tarot cards I have been coveting enormously forever. I have zero idea how to read tarot but the art is incredible and I like the idea of learning how to read the cards because I think they're a great way to tap into your subconscious and help direct your thoughts for decision making. So that will be an upcoming project. The cards are v v pretty, as is my wife. I very much like being married to her :)

Oh! And on Saturday night we saw Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. at the Malty. I got the tickets for E's Christmas present and it wasn't an excellent choice given that we both liked the beginning and then liked it less and less as it went on, but it's always nice to see theatre even if it's not 100% yay.

VACATION ALL I EVER WANTED

* We had half of a fantastic vacation! We want to move to Portland so badly. It is lovely and progressive and beautiful.
* We went to Multnomah Falls and Powell's bookstore with Denise's cousin and his wife, who are lovely people.
* We had ALL the great food
* We took an Amtrak to Tacoma which was also very cool. We plan to take the train as often as possible
* The weather was so fo fantastic it was unreal. We had two days of sunny perfection, and then it got a little overcast and drizzly and Brenda, Denise's cousin's wife goes, 'Oh! The weather got yucky.' We were both, '...no? What is this yucky you speak of?' It was still cool and brisk and fabulous.
* It is 95 degrees in Houston right now with 79% humidity and I am dying.
* Sadly, I could not connect with Dine, but I have hope next time!

AND THEN IT ALL WENT TO HELL

* D didn't tell me she had been feeling increasingly worse pretty much since we began the trip. She said she thought she could 'power through' the trip. ( facepalm )
* We got to Tacom and the morning we were to go whale watching she woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me she felt sick. An hour and three projectile sick bombs later my friend Shelby drove us to the ER in Puyallup, WA
* D was released after three days because she had a 22000 count of white blood cells when the normal amount is 8000 and her heart rate was elevated. This is always what they find when she goes to the ER.
* It COULD have been worse. She could have cratered on the Clipper ship. Or on the plane. Or in some city where we knew no one. Our friends were just the best the whole time and I can't believe we are lucky enough to have them in our lives.
* We changed our flight and finally got home and I took two extra days off because I needed a vacation from my vacation

So! That part is a do-over whenever we get the money again.

WATCHING

* Just started binging Zoo. Not bad. I have Zenyatta/Jackson FEELINGS
* Got three eps into The Handmaid's Tale and kind of stalled. I know I'll go back to it but it feels too close to reality for me right now. Especially in Texas
* Shadowhunters is back!!! I loves me some Magnus Bane.

HOCKEY

* The Pens won The Cup. While I'm not surprised because really, it's the Pens, I so wanted the Preds to win for PK. Still, Phil Kessel has a Cup win now, along with Trevor Daley, an ex-Dallas Star, and one of my favorites, so that is happy-making
* Now the long, dry, empty months until next season. May they pass quickly

ANNIVERSARY

*26 years together, 24 married. :-) Felicidades to us!

OK gente!

Must go work, so talk at y'all later!

let me put my poems in you

I haven't posted since...March?? How is that possible?

Oh, right. I spent all of April and May trapped in an allergy vortex. A place of phlegm and misery, where time does not exist.

I mean, okay. I know springtime hayfever is not uncommon. But mine is -- special. Yeah, let's go with that. Special. Special like someone strapping a bucket filled with bees to my head, and then rolling me up in a rug also filled with bees and yes, I know this is a terrible, half-assed metaphor, but -- BEES.

That kind of special.

It's always been that way. I end up losing an entire season. It's just...gone. And then the whole experience leaves me angry and disoriented, shuffling around, muttering about, well. Bees. The prettiest zombie at the zombie prom! And I stay that way 'til the weather starts slowly getting hotter and I wake up one random morning yelling, "the beach, the beach! Let's go to the beach!"

Sigh. I really do miss the beach.

Anyway. I've had a few new fic ideas over the last couple of weeks and, amazingly, I was even letting myself get excited about one or two of them, but then --

BUT THEN --

Ugh. I don't know. This morning I had an awful, sinking moment where it occurred to me just how sitcom-y they all are. Just trite and cutesy-pie and -- all of them! And, no. The kinds of plots that can only ever really be resolved by an Olsen twin popping up from behind a piece of furniture and saying, "You got it, dude!" And then -- hearty chuckling and a freeze frame, I guess?

Seriously, there isn't a single one I can't picture ending that way. And it sickens me.

I am thoroughly demoralized.
