I'm so sleepy right now. There's still housework left to do yet today and neither of us wants to do anything ([livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych is napping on the couch while I type this) about it.

The weekend, though, has been good. Very social, though, and it looks like this is a trend that will probably carry on through to Christmas. Not that I mind seeing my friends, but after a while, I like spending entire days with my significant other without having to go anywhere.

Friday night was [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne's Muffing Day party. Much fun, conversation and lechery were had by all who attended. I drank some Black Bush scotch neat...[livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych's jaw hit the floor on that one. :) It was good alkeyhall and I likes it, but it might have been a bit smoother with some ice.

Yesterday was not one, but two separate gatherings in Woodstock of all places. My brother-in-law invited us and a gaggle of cousins over for burgers and such. I should have brought something, but I didn't think of it until too late. Oops. It was okay, but I don't really know the cousins because I've only met them all of three times. Some of them are only 5 years younger than me, but we have nothing in common, especially since I'm not much of a drinker and I don't like beer as a rule. For part of it, I felt very alone and out of my element. Add to that some body issues (two of them have had kids and you'd never know...all of the women there were unbelievably skinny) and I was very tempted to haul off somewhere else and read. I wasn't excluded, by any stretch, but I felt like a fat lump with nothing to offer.

We left just before 8 and went across town for tea and mildly inappropriate conversation with Jocasta, a friend [livejournal.com profile] robigus and I met in senior greek. I needed the contrast, I think. And it was nice to have someone who got my references without having to explain them. I must go back again soon, next time with [livejournal.com profile] robigus, so we can cackle like a trio of witches over something only considered moderately amusing by someone else.

Today has been very relaxing. Breakfast at Ethel's, followed by a long and winding route home. It's a gorgeous day and it was a good walk back. We stopped at a brand new dollar store (Dollar Fusion, corner of King N and Young) along the way. It's pretty darned good. We picked up a few things we needed as we poked around. I noticed that they had canvas bracelets in a punk style (metal studs and snaps). They didn't fit, sadly, but if you're looking for that sort of thing and don't want (p)leather, you can go there. We even walked past a house and had quick look around the property. It only made us want it more. Now if only we had money.

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne. May you have many more years of being only 39 ahead. :)

And a very very Happy Anniversary to [livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych! Ten years together (six married) but far from over. I love you.

I feel better today. I dunno. I guess I just needed to get the ick out by letting others know that I was feeling bad.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] clawfoot, [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne, [livejournal.com profile] the_daily_rant, [livejournal.com profile] robertom for the kind words, and also to [livejournal.com profile] joncanuck and [livejournal.com profile] meowster for being on Messenger when I needed someone to be there. Damned near everything about this entire experience is a great big bowl of ass sucking cherry pits and being in limbo only emphasizes the bad bits.

So. Um. Yeah. Thanks and all that. :)

I'm so stressed out my eczema is coming back on my left pinkie. Just what I need. :P

And until the wee one is in hospital, no movies for us. Sorry about that, [livejournal.com profile] clawfoot. :( But if you want to stop by and hang out or something, that can happen. Just give us a call.

In other (and probably more important) news, Shannon rolled over for the first time yesterday. It seems like she's late, but if she's anything like my sister, she's doing things in her own sweet time. :)
Okay. I've been poked with a Magic Reach by [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne, so now onto the Book Meme...

1) Total number of books in your house:

Do I have to count? Lots. Hundreds. Reference ones, and biographical ones, and children's ones, and graphic ones, and gaming ones, and ancient ones, and so much more.

2) The last book you bought was:

Aside from giving my money to the nice people at Now and Then for flat paper objects, No One Noticed the Cat by Anne McCaffrey for my at-the-time unborn babe (this was last summer. I have so many yet to be read, and I still want to buy more. And I miss working at LSC...free books...*shudder in delight*)

3) What was the last book you read before reading this?

Again, aside from a comic book, Terry Pratchett's A Hat Full of Sky.

4) Write down 5 books you often read or that mean a lot to you.

Last Hero, Terry Pratchett
Archangel, Sharon Shinn
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, Chris Moore
Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
American Gods, Neil Gaiman

5) Who are you going to pass the Magic Reach stick to (three people) and why?

[livejournal.com profile] sorceressmedea, a fellow classicist and I'm curious to know what she's translating, er, reading...:)
[livejournal.com profile] angeliquewisom on account that I don't know much about her and would like to know more.
[livejournal.com profile] hollygoth 'cause she works in a library, and must be tempted to read surrounded by all those books.

So, after downloading the first episode last night and getting around to watching it a little while ago, I have to admit, I'm very impressed with the new Doctor Who. Christopher Eccleston is perfect and the new series really does benefit from computer animation. But, don't fret, there's still a little BBC Cheese to make everything better. :)

I believe [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne that this is the information that you seek about the good Doctor in Canada.
