Learning how to fold things so they are in horizontal rows rather than vertical stacks is definitely the point where this tipped over into "hobby." However, it does make stuff WAY easier to find.

These are before-and-after aerial shots of my T-shirt drawer:

I'm here! We're approaching sunset here on the US East Coast and the sky is looking fairly ominous. The weather folks are calling for severe thunderstorms until midnight. Perfect time to start writing!

Are you working on any projects tonight?

It's been a good Friday

A few weeks ago it dawned on me that my walking shoes were starting to show distinct signs of wear and tear and that this was probably because they're pretty much the only shoes I'd been wearing since my foot injury last year. While that might have been a good helping-to-support-and-heal strategy originally, it's long past the point where I ought to be re-learning to wear other pairs of footwear. I've been wearing assorted boots and shoes for short trips out for a few weeks now but today the weather was far too warm for the walking shoes so I got my first trial of wearing a different pair of footwear for an entire day of ambling around outside.

I've had a lovely day of ambling from coffee shop to coffee shop, caught a lot of Pokémon, done some raiding, and spent the afternoon doing all of the above while nattering to [personal profile] keziath. My foot only got achey towards late afternoon and while it did need an ice pack when I got home I think the aches are of the this-foot-still-needs-to-build-up-strength variety rather than anything else. Progress of a sort. Plus I caught a shiny Buneary and got some exercise :)

Special Agent Kheldar has spent the day carefully replenishing his solar batteries and occasionally bouncing around like a cat half his age. He appears to be very much in favour of the arrival of spring.

Looky Here! I Can Has An Arty Blog!

Go and check out my new arty blog!

I've made this a separate WordPress blog because

  1. Dreamwidth is kind of frustrating in its really primitive user interface for pictures.
  2. It's really nice to be able to just take a photo with my phone and then blog about it.
  3. It enables me to be more focused in my writing about art/craft, having a separate blog for it.

Not that I'm necessarily going to stop posting here about art/craft, but half the time I'll be linking to posts I made there instead.

So go and check it out! Make comments! Look at the pretty pictures!

so when I realized she'd never seen or heard of The Sixth Sense, I added it to our movie line-up.

She was actually surprised by the twist. This is such a novel experience, I felt I had to record it for posterity.

We've also watched Empire Records (Eva was deeply caught up in the question of whether or not Joe is actually Lucas' foster father, or if he's just fatherly) and 10 Things I Hate About you (we lost Heath Ledger entirely too soon). Also, unrelated to this all, Jenn and Eva watched Legally Blonde. I was surprised that Jenn had never seen that movie before. She was surprised that I've watched it at least seven times already. I'm not sure which fact is more surprising.

Things I have done so far today:

1. Taken far too many people on apartment showings. (Due to a handful of early move-outs, we now have four sample apartments we can show people with no prior notice. In theory this is a good thing. In practice, it means I have been doing significantly more walking-and-talking than I consider ideal. *wry*)

2. Addressed, wrote, and mailed a batch of thank-you notes for my church stewardship committee.

3. Rented two parking spaces.

4. Stayed on top of office paperwork and now finally have some time to get non-paperwork tasks done, like updating apartment photos on our website and refreshing our ads on rental listing sites. \o/

So I'm going to get on that photo stuff.

I was just emailed a weekend coupon to the local kosher pizzeria. I... don't know what to do with that.

A zissen pizzach to all!

I never did have
good impulse control, but hey,
these still count as words.

A haiku about procrastination.

“Cary doesn’t want a special name,” Kerry relays. “But that’s cause he’s mad we’re a system and he doesn’t want to be one because he’s being a jerk.” “Kerry,” Amy chides. “I’m proud that we’re a system just like I’m proud that we’re mutants,” Kerry continues. “There’s nothing wrong with it for the Davids so there’s nothing wrong with it for us.” She listens again. “Well other people are stupid. That’s their problem, not ours.” She turns to David again. “I was already trying to decide what our system name should be before—“ She falters, then rallies. “I think we should be the Karies. Kay ay are eye ee ess.” “Tell them I think that’s a great name,” Divad says. “And me!” Dvd insists. “Our system really likes that name,” David relays, and offers the Karies a smile.

Only a year and two months after I moved in, my mirrors are finally hung! Pics! I'm so pleased with how they look and the guy was so fast! He was done with both in less than an hour! Next weekend, the bench is assembled and that'll go under the mirror in the bedroom - between the windows but away from the radiator - and everything will be complete!!!

The exterminator came also, which is good because last night was like a nightmare in the kitchen. Things had been mostly quiet on the bug front lately, and I guess I got complacent because I was not prepared at all for last night. But I watched him spray the baseboards and put some gel on the lip of the backsplash above the sink where I can't reach, and hopefully that will take care of the problem. There's no food out and the sink is dry after 8 pm, and I wish they would just go away. It's so upsetting.

I also got the laundry done, and I'll fold it tonight while watching the Mets. Yesterday, I caught up on Brooklyn Nine Nine, which was a good choice, because it made me laugh a lot, and then last night's episode made me laugh even more. Everything with Holt was COMEDY GOLD. And Mark Evan Jackson looks amazingly attractive with that beard.

In other news, did you know that jelly shoes are in fashion again? I would like a pair of gold sparkly ones, but I doubt at this point I could wear them comfortably. I lived in them in the early 80s though. And those awful Dr. Scholl's sandals - you know the ones! - before graduating to Candie's.

Anyway, here is today's poem:

All Objects Reveal Something About the Body
by Catie Rosemurgy

Crisp is to the apple what
flexed is to the body.

Poor apple.

Being bitten is to the crisp apple
what walking is to the ripe body, but it's more complicated than that:

the apple of the face has been given
to the running juice of the body

and the body, which is often gracious,
makes it shine.

Lucky apple.

Having a core is to the apple
what having a core is to the body, city, method, circumstance, endeavor.

Having a core is flower-shaped and hurts
in the way that having a shape hurts, which is to say

it hurts ironically, because to have limits
is not just to make a declaration upon a mountainside,

it is also to be the mountainside. Having a flowering core
also hurts in the way that being flower-like always hurts,

which is to say sexually, as if the whole self
has exceeded the skin, which it hasn't, which means

we always seem to be opening but never ever do.
Both these types of suffering color the air

when we pause to have them. The affected atoms
are hard to see amongst the billions

of sofa atoms, newsprint atoms
but, like the illnesses in the crystalline sea, they are there.

Red apple sliced, quartered, salted. Green apple,

alone in the basket.
Anything left on the shelf becomes weak,

suggestible, vulnerable to other shapes, hungry to be refilled
by something other than itself,

a poison apple.
The joining we do with others needs containing.

Apple pie.
Imagine the mess. Imagine a finger touching the sack of the heart.

Imagine being stopped, controlled that powerfully.
Imagine nothing like that being possible. Nothing ever stopping you

at the root of the breath. Huge apple.
The world in reference to you. How you move. Time a backdrop.

Or close the other eye: you in reference to the world.
How it varies and happens simultaneously.

Good morning.
Little apple.

Title: a little quickens, but much extinguishes

Author: [personal profile] grassangel
Character/Pairing: Thirteen/Missy, cameo appearances from the series 11 team
Genre: Angst, fluff
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 1747

The Doctor and the Master are bound to feel each other's emotions. They've gone through periods of delighting in this connection and through periods of denying what they feel isn't their own.
After the colony ship, after regenerating, the Thirteenth Doctor struggles to relearn how to ignore the longing in her hearts.

It works until it doesn't.

Ice out of the cemetery pond and off the river to above head-of-tide. Even vernal pools on my bike route open.

Road dried off, temperature got above 60 F, extended my ride distance again. About 10 miles, no roadkill.

Well, this is tragic. The elevator is still non-functional so we're stashing our tank in one of our storage rooms until we can get it up to the fourth floor. Embarrassing.

Anyway, I'm about to leave work and brave whatever weather mess is out there. I'll be joining in on the writing fun (finally!) tonight. Jury's out on whether I go to yoga class this afternoon or not. Guess it depends on how bad it's coming down. (The roads where I live have a tendency to flood a little soooo...)

May you be dry and productive where you are!
