Things I have learned this week

* It's a lot more tolerable to work a crazy work schedule when I know that the end is in sight.

* Although I'm still a hot weather person and in general would rather be too hot than too cold, I do have my limits. The fog finally rolled in a few days back and I almost cheered.

* Watching a cat groom is quite soothing. Watching one cat groom another is doubly so.

* The only thing better than getting postcards you'd forgotten to expect in the mail is getting a package you weren't expecting at all.

* All expectations to the contrary, the parking lot at the Asian grocery store will still be incredibly busy at 1:30 on a Friday afternoon.

* Working Saturdays is much easier when I'm not the only staff member in the library.

* Writing battle scenes still does not come naturally to me. I spent most of the weekend fighting with one (no pun intended -- well, okay, maybe it is), and grabbing at every distraction that offered. Then I got the inspiration for a bit of personal interaction and that poured out in a matter of minutes. Gee, I wonder which I would rather spend my time on?

* Usually, it's best to give something we don't want to lose to T for safekeeping. Sometimes, however, this backfires.

* The way to a man's heart is through feeding him zucchini bread, especially when that man is my friend C.

* The first season of Veronica Mars is just as awesome on a second watching.

* Washing full-size pillows in a top-loading washing machine is a poor idea. Go to the laundromat and use the front-loaders. Trust me on this one.

* It's a wonderful thing to have friends who are willing to let you rant at them for hours via IM. Or be goofy at them. Or, especially, be goofy with them and rant *at the same time*. You guys are the best.

lol :) My mom used to make really good zucchini bread... she doesn't male it any more, for some reason...

What happens?

The pillows absorb water in strange ways and the water gets all over the floor. And then the tub can't agitate. My knowledge of this is second-hand, fortunately, but it sticks with me all the same...

I am unable to dispute a single thing you have said. It has been a most peculiar week-end. ;)

I envy you your fog. The best we can do is a dense blanket of pollution which hazes the atmosphere. Not quite the same.

100% agreed on the second one. I even checked to make sure you were in the same area as I am, to make sure you were talking about the same fog that I have. ^^;

Errr. Hi. I'm Stephanie, and I was randomly reading heyheyrenay's friends list. e.e; I do that sometimes. Sorry. Just wanted to give a shoutout to someone else that was happy to feel that fog back.

    Ooooh, I would totally be down with an all-BioWare Kiss Battle, that sounds like so much fun. I would totally prompt for some older IPs like Jade Empire, too :D

    Give me notice and I'll go spam the…

    I've already gotten at least one request to make it an all-Bioware canons kiss battle, which might encourage more participation given the current state of hype for Andromeda... :)

    If I go for it, I…

    I'd love one, and I'm sure the gang over on dragon_age would be (although they're we're all hyping up over Mass Effect Andromeda right now, but still worth posting a…

    I'm concerned and I don't primarily use DW. I am thinking about backing up my content there, but I'm just not sure about how it will work out. I do need to get on this, though.
