[personal profile] kay_mulan I was asked once, or maybe I asked... or both! What do Moslems who follow their path of peace, believe?
The Arabic here is translated in Spanish and English. I think that's what my ten-year Iranian American neighbors were going for, maybe. I have met a very few number of Moslems in America, but their grandparents and parents were all Iranian. Oh, and two Saudi Arabian Americans.

But Shakira is Colombian and Catholic with Lebanese grandparents. Cool.

He did it all for you.

Okay, I'm so damn tired that I fell asleep when I got home from work and slept until 9:30 this evening. I'm going to bed without any food besides popcorn on my stomach, which is not going to be good once I take my evening pills, but it was just too much to try to think of actually cooking at that time of night. I keep thinking that I'm gonna start stocking microwave stuff for occasions like tonight, but I'm realistic enough to know that I would end up eating the microwave food on a lazy night, instead of an 'whoops, I've overslept through my nap' night. If that makes any kind of sense. I'm not sure that it actually does.

Either way, though, I'm getting ready for bed now and getting ready to lay back down. Good night, all.

Silks class #4 is the day after tomorrow, so I guess if I'm gonna muster up any semblance of a post about weeks 2 and 3 I'd better do that.

Week 2 )

Week 3 )

Three classes done, five to go. My feeling at this point is that this was probably unrealistically ambitious for someone who hasn't taken any physical classes in a long, long time or really done any focused exercise since I stopped climbing several years ago, but despite almost none of it coming naturally, I'm mostly enjoying it. I'm kinda hoping it'll give me a push to taking some kind of class after this (like barre!) that's more suited to where I currently am physically.

It's also probably just as well, in one sense, that (so far) I'm not in love with silks, much as I think they're incredibly cool. The sad reality is that evening classes are rarely feasible around Casual Job, so finding a level 2 (or beyond) timeslot for something as specific as silks that'd actually work for me logistically seems...unlikely. But we'll see. And meanwhile, "enjoying it well enough" is not a bad place to be.

As mentioned previously, code for the Slack-Python edition of Random Word Hell. I already have requests to add more trigger syntax, and I want to integrate data serialization of some variety (probably Pickle) so that data is preserved even if you have to restart it.

Also got a good chunk of basic DW API stuff written over the weekend but bluh bluh testing, etc.

For tank/DPS combos*. This grows more obvious the more I try to brainstorm this years NaNoWriMo project.

Also, if I didn't hate the mechanics/stats side of it, I would totally write litRPG. But even in my gaming, I want less fussing with stats, not MORE.

*I blame [personal profile] darthneko and I swapping to monk mains this expac. One brewmaster plus one windwalker will rip through anything, including heroic dungeons. Sadly, we can't yet duo current-content raids, or the bullshit quests that keep sending me to Emerald Nightmare would be done already.

I am so tired y'all. I want to go home and go to bed, but I have at least 50 pages of reading to do for tomorrow's class. I won't get to go home until after 9 tomorrow, and Friday (which I am taking off) is going to be super long because I have a dr. appt out in the suburbs. Plus, I am meeting up with one of my group project members and we're going to try and get some reading/work done for that.

Honestly, the thing I'm finding hardest about grad school right now is how social and OUT OF MY HOME it's forcing me to be. It's probably good for me (?), but I am suffering. I haven't worked out in a few weeks - which I don't so much miss as know I need to do it but really don't want to, and this is handholding that desire - and I pretty much feel like I've abandoned my poor cat.

Seriously, anyone local who wants to come hang out with my cat, lmk, I will get you keys.

(So tired.)

I am ABSOLUTELY going to yoga when the semester ends. SO MUCH YOGA.

guest gift dilemma

the_shoshanna: a menu (menu)
[personal profile] the_shoshanna
This weekend I'm going to a workshop in Ontario, and I'll be staying three nights in the home of someone who has offered to host a workshop attendee. I don't know this person/people -- I don't even have a name or address yet, and may not be told until I arrive on Friday afternoon. Not that a name or address would tell me anything except how much time to allot to get back and forth between bed and workshop...

I'd like to bring a guest gift, as a way of saying thank you, but I'm finding myself paralyzed. (Also short on time, but that's a separate issue.) The traditional gift is food, right? Something homemade, that carries the signification of "I put work into this" as well as the general good feeling associated with sharing food. Or wine, which lacks the homemade aspect but adds extra celebratoriness to the good feeling aspect.

But, knowing nothing about the person I might be staying with, I'm finding myself blocked with worry about what might be appropriate. Alcohol is problematic enough for enough people that I'd rather not bring it -- plus I should bring something I'd want to consume myself, in case they invite me to share, and I'd rather not drink while I'm there. But food is difficult too. Sweets/desserts are the usual gift, for the special-treat feeling, and I'd rather not eat sweets either, really, but I can cope. But what if they're gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, sugar-free, kosher, halal, allergic, diabetic? Is there a universally suitable food gift? Is it okay if I bring something they can't eat? What if I accidentally hit on something to which they're so allergic that just having it in the house is a problem? Aaaaaaaa.

I definitely don't feel that a gift is required, and given time restrictions, I may end up bringing nothing anyway. But I'd like to if I can -- if I can think of something!

Uh, any suggestions?

Early but

It's sort of early for me, but I'm so damn tired that I might end up going to bed pretty soon. I'm not sure why I'm so tired, but damn, I really, really am. Then again, it might have something to do with the fact that I'm just about the only one at the office who isn't actually sick. How much longer that will go on, I don't know, but I can't afford to take any more sick time. I'm already going to burn through all that I have with the appointments and surgery next month.

I'm grateful that this didn't happen until I started at this job with insurance, but it's bringing through my available leave hours like no one's business. I mean, granted, I don't have many, but still, what I do have is about to all be gone by the end of the year. At least two of my appointments are after the break starts, so I don't have to use leave for them.

But mostly I'm going to be glad not to be bleeding all the time. Seriously, all the time. It's gotten to the point where I don't even tell my coworkers that I'm going to the bathroom. I just say "I'm going to go check the crime scene," and they know what I mean. Well, not Richard, because the four of us women try to shield him a bit, and not Chris, because he's the boss and never there, but still. LaTrease, Glynda, Anastasia, and I know what "the crime scene" means. It's become office code already.

I'm just so off in la-la land right now that it's almost funny. I want to be writing. I have ideas for writing. I have a bit of actual fluff going... instead of the pain and angst I've usually got going. But no, I'm too tired to do anything even vaguely effective for writing. I've had a relatively cramp-free set of days, and apparently that leads to fluff. I know, when I'm cramping or changing pads every hour or two, that's when I end up torturing characters. Oh my gods, but do I end up torturing characters. I've had entire verses spun out of how badly the cramps suck, where I end up tormenting characters more than is right or proper. (And thus the Worst Case Scenario verses were born. FYI.)

And yeah, I'm so out of it. I'm just gonna finish this up and go throw myself at my bed. So long, my freaky darlings.

I finished An Unsuitable Heir, which is the last of a trilogy by KJ Charles. m/m, historic romance, also murder mystery with a missing heir. I liked it a lot.

spoilers for An Unsuitable Heir )


Tuesday: I managed to get out to the post office and send out three things.
A small pen-knife a friend found in her pocket before a flight, which I took and promised to mail to her.
A bread-maker baking tin, which I ordered and sent onwards, as the people selling it were not shipping to Israel. My parents' bread-maker that they bought in Israel but somehow getting a replacement part for it to Israel was impossible.
A drawing of a bunny I made as part of Inktober. A friend saw it on twitter and asked if I was selling prints. I said I could do a deal on the original. By which I meant: I have too low energy to organise a print. So I have sent that out.


On Saturday I went with the beloved and with Derek to an evening of comedy and song : Midnight Apothecary Goes Down the Shaft hosted by Tricity Vogue on ukulele (with guest, Matthew Floyd Jones, at the grand piano). It was at the Brunel Museum.
It was described very glamorous on the website: - so much so , it was almost intimidating - but as it was, only the beloved and Derek were even wearing waistcoats. (🎵I was all dressed in black , we were all dressed up in black.🎵)

There was tasty food- greek-style wraps with beef or with feta. There were many and various cocktails, and even a couple of mocktails, (and also glasses and water freely available to drink, which I like)

At a roof-top garden there was a bonfire and pointy sticks and a steady supply of marshmallows to roast, And lit torches all around. I was glad it was a clear night and not raining. At one point someone came up and asked for a light for a cigarette, then used a torch to light it.

There were bars providing drinks both at the rooftop garden, and at the bottom of the shaft, where the performance was, (the stage and the grand piano and the speakers and the projector, which was useful for lyrics for the singalong.

Tricity Vogue was charming and funny and full of innuendo, I enjoyed it very much.
I like this photo because the silhouette on the wall matches levels of double-entendre that were bandied about.

Also I got to be introduced and say hello, because Derek knows Ms. Vogue. Then I got shy and ran away.

Memo to self: the Brunel Museum is quite easy to get to. (Jubilee line to Canada Water, Overground to Rotherhite)


When the beloved and I got home, Shadow, next-door's cat, was waiting on our doormat. We opened the door and he came in for a visit. He's a beautiful cat, but mostly he's inquisitive and friendly and charming and he climbed on me and tried to get up my nose, and he climbed on the beloved, and he was so affectionate and we have fallen in love with this cat.

At one point he fell asleep snuggled on the sofa between me and the beloved, and I tried to get a photo of it, but between us both wearing black and Shadow being a black cat, the charm of the moment did not come through.

When the next-door neighbours came home from their night out, Shadow ran to the door, and I let him out and knocked on their door, and he went back home.
