cher_arlequin BOOK THREAD!23rd-Mar-2013 02:59 am (UTC)
What are you reading, _p?

I'm just finishing up The Persian Boy by Mary Renault. I got some amusement out of seeing my name (Sikandar) crop up in the text once or twice.

I'm reading Far from the Tree: parents, children, and the search for identity by Andrew Solomon, and I love it so far.

So, my team (Wisconsin) lost their march madness game today and my bracket is starting to look pretty fucked.

I think now I'm just in it for the schadenfreude and watching all the big teams lose and people having their brackets destroyed.

heh, I don't care much for basketball beyond saying go Michigan!, but I love watching the scores for upsets just because I know so many brackets will be fucked up

shortsweetcynic whatcha drinking/eating, _p?23rd-Mar-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
maaaaan, it's a late one tonight. :)

it's kinda been a not-excellent week, and i'm glad it's over. on the plus side: we got a new kitchen table today, and our house is finally livable again.

drinking: stoli vodka, sprite zero and a squeeze of lime. so so good.

eating: (well, eatEN, really) bacon-wrapped filet mignons, asparagus for the sweetie and cauliflower rice for me, with sauteed red and green peppers on the side. made a sauce with the pan scrapings and added a little cream, some tarragon and some brown mustard. freaking delicious.

I just ran out of rum the other day (sob), so to-day I am drowning my sorrows in half-assed brandy cobbler.

Saw this on FB the other day and it both amused me and made me angry.

Happy Friday everyone!

SCREAMING @ 'THE CRYING GAME'

Also, I got to see Demetri Martin speak at my school's Barnes and Noble today! He was great. I even got him to sign a couple books (one for me, one for my sister) and chat with me for a bit. I wanted to get a picture with him but the lines were too long.

(I was also planning on seeing Seth Meyers tonight but I couldn't get tickets.)

We're in the middle of a lawsuit re: my dad's assault and we are now feeling the effects of suing insurance companies in a world of Bush-appointed federal judges.

Newsflash: it's infuriating.
romp 23rd-Mar-2013 04:39 am (UTC)
I am sorry about the infuriating. I wish you so much luck!

those of you who have/know cats know that some are cool with being vacuumed by the little round hose extension piece. i grew up with a cat that loved it.

cue today and i'm vacuuming out the hammocks and going around the various cats who don't care that i'm waving the noisy thing around. i get to Comrade (who's this big tubby Tonkinese mix) and i vacuum along his back first, then move to vacuum along the hammock edges where fur is stuck. before i even can move the hose that way, Comrade proceeds to flip himself almost completely over on his back, looks up and me and meows, clearly telling me he wants his belly vacuumed. ROFL.

Got back from Seoul Tuesday, it was amazing! Already planning my next trip back. Lazy Saturday afternoon here, should be cleaning my apartment but I'm probably just gonna stay in bed and read all day..,

You can do it. You can do it, and when you're out, you will never have to go back. Ever.

I don't know how to feel about my new job. I love my coworkers, but the clients... the clients! It's catering for very rich people. One was a client who did a fundraising event for a big name in FL, who lobbies for 'economic education' in schools. At first, I agreed: we're sent out at 17-18 with no financial knowhow whatsoever. How to do our basic taxes, how to balance a budget, things we don't necessarily see (hidden expenses) in living. No, they're talking about penny stocks, mutual funds, investments. Um, if I can't fucking afford FOOD on a regular basis, how am I going to get into the stock market?! And I know I'm not alone. Take a walk in this neighbourhood. Almost everyone here seems to be on WIC, EBT, SSI... you want to teach us about money, teach us the basics of what to do with day-to-day living if and when any of us get money. The kicker? He started talking about how their classes could help us become rich, regardless of gender, race, or any other factors.

I had to leave the room for a minute. It's been harder for me to keep a straight face.

But I really enjoyed today, at least. I went to a show at the local uni and did a kimono booth. Our neighbours moved out and gave us some nice furniture, too! I also qual'd for EBT too, so if I still do coupons and ad comparisons, I have a hundred or so left at the end of the month to help feed my friends who need the money, but who don't qualify for some reason.

The only thing on my list now is to acquire insulin for the bunnehcat. ^_^ I heard from my vet that some docs throw new levemir away at the end of the month, even though it's good for four. Her diabetes is back, and diet isn't good enough anymore. So I have a lot of hope that it'll be cheap or free! <3

Having turkey burgers now and excited about starting out early tomorrow for the farmer's market, seed swap, and then back to building a bee hive.

I am hippie, hear me roar!
