Had a dream last night where I could crochet, read Irish, and was going to be a policeman.

I would like to crochet and read (and speak) Irish. I would not like to be a policeman.

Used it for the first time this evening. Amazing soft bristles, felt like little pixies were massaging my gums.

I really miss executive function. I hope mine comes back soon.

Well, I suppose if I'm going to be walked in on while I'm naked and busy, wrapping Christmas presents is probably one of the better things I could have been busy doing.

I KNOW.

This year I finally got around to signing up for their frequent flyer program, so now KLM keeps sending me e-mails with subject lines that are minor variations on "Fly away somewhere! It's so cheap!"

Man. Stop fucking taunting me, KLM.

All the trees here turn yellow in the fall. It's pretty -- in the sunshine -- but I miss the blazing red maple trees and the ones that turn purple (ash?).

Already bored with having to wear tights every day for (what feels like) forever.

I love my friends. Shit happens, we don't write angry letters; we write angry policy motions.

This will not do. Things must change.

"There's no need for a hyphen in reschedule. This isn't the nineteenth century!" said the man who puts apostrophes at the beginning of words like bus and phone.

Aww

[livejournal.com profile] greyeyedeve has said one of the nicer things anyone's said about me.

She introduced me to someone as her "platonic wife."

I just realized this morning that England get to keep the Ashes just because it rains a lot in Manchester.*

It is an infuriating game, sometimes.


* And because Australia fell apart in the first two Tests, yes, okay...but what's the point of having a long Russian-novel of a series if it still hinges on such a little thing?

I've just realized it's now the part of the day* where I can take my clothes off and have a beer.

I like this part.

* The "yes there's still lots to do because I haven't really started packing for tomorrow but it's all stuff I can do in the house rather than walking around Levenshulme like I have been all afternoon" part of the day.

Andrew's trying to tell me I'm racist against planets of restrictive growth.

"I don't hate Pluto!" I protested. "I just said that even in the best pictures we have of it, it's so pixilated it looks like a disco ball."

Lately I think I'm doing fine, as long as I'm busy. Whenever I stop, things look ugly.

I find it so much easier to tolerate Paul Gambaccini now that I get to remember [personal profile] magister once calling him "a less good [twitter.com profile] stealthmunchkin."

Drinking something called North Star Porter. It seems appropriate when I'm getting made fun of for sounding Minnesotan.

No, Mr. Thought for the Day Man, it's not the Bradford Media Museum, it's the National Media Museum. That's part of the fucking point: it's not a quirky local thing, it's for everybody in the nation.

It's nice that my first meeting as an officer of my local party included my husband, one of my best friends, and sitting in a park on a gloriously sunny day.

It's fun watching TV with Andrew and [livejournal.com profile] diffrentcolours: who needs Sherlock Holmes when you've got clones and time travel as explanations?

It must say something about me that I now can't help but spot Nick Briggs' voice at twenty paces.* Probably something concerning.

* Actually, only across a room, but with headphones on listening to TMS.
