I was going to do a post about canning today, but we lost two quarts of sauce when the bottoms dropped of the jars and I'm a little pissed and upset. So it's going to have to wait unfortunately.

Sorry.

Tonight begins the very very lately started...RED SAUCE PROCESS

As in:
We will
OBTAIN 30 POUNDS TOMATOES

We will
BLANCH THOSE TOMATOES

(IN THE GIANT BUCKET)
We will proceed to
CHOP ALL THE TOMATOES

and chop
and chop
and chop

and then chop some more
We will
STORE THE TOMATOES, OVERNIGHT

in
BOWLS

in the
FRIDGE


The real business of converting all the tomatoes to sauce and all the sauce to jars of sauce will happen tomorrow, but the WORK BEGINS TONIGHT

I may be pretty bummed that Borders is finally going out of business once and for all.


But I am fucking THRILLED that I got like 9 new books on Saturday for almost no money.

I think I am going to have to go to the phone store this weekend.

I mean, I've been planning to upgrade my phone for a while because it is old and slow and getting slower AS I WATCH IT ACTUALLY AGE, but laziness is a powerful thing to overcome.

But now.
Now.

I downloaded an upgrade for my NYT Crossword app because it is basically the only app I used pretty much all the time and I would really have liked it to maybe not be so slow all the time. And when I downloaded this upgrade, well, I forgot all about the slowness because the slowness is no longer relevant.

It is pretty hard to be slow when you simply CRASH EVERY FIVE SECONDS.




as;ldkjf I need my crossword fix you guy, I need it i need it i need it. WaPo is not going to get me there. It's not. i need a new phone that isn't chugging along like a handcar and can actually let me do my damn puzzles ohmahgaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.

I WAS going to post about interesting (HA HA RIGHT) stuff, but then I once again managed to work myself into a nice froth of anger and vomit, because that is what I do, so.


FOR THE MOMENT:

Taking prompts in an attempt to cleanse my brain/burn off the anger with creative pursuits. Character/pairing + word/lyric/picture/WACKY HIJINK* aaaaaaaaaaaaaand go. Assuming you want to.






*the type of prompts i want to ask for are really incredibly dickish and i realize that so i'm not actually going to ask for them, but lord, don't i want to.

I went to see Cap last night! I have to say, Marvel, you are doing a damn good job at making surprisingly awesome movies about heroes I don't really care about (lmao /shittiest marvel fan). I mean, I actually walked out like "Oh hey, Cap. WOOOO!" Which was mostly new.

Still though. This morning the first thing I did was skip over to the bookshelf and pull out my copy of TRUTH. And the proceed to read it again and cry again on the bus, but whatever I love that book. Because I was sitting there in the theater, pretty much totally enjoying the movie, but in the back of my head all I could think was

I want Isaiah Where is Isaiah I want Isaiah I want Isaiah Give me the Isaiah story I want Isaiah Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaith

In my heart of hearts, that's the movie I actually wanted to see. Steve is fine and all, but. Isaiah motherfucking Bradley. Also, then we'd get Faith. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ It was a thing I knew wasn't going to actually happen, but I still wanted it.



Also, now I'm wishing I had a scanner I could actually use. Because damn if there isn't some stuff from TRUTH I'd really like to post. Including what is possibly iiiiiiiiiitty-bitty Eli! (Or possibly not; the book came out in 2009 but I'm not sure when it's set. :/)

So I went to California this past weekend and I actually had a really fun time! Apparently the SO's extended family on that side are actually pretty great. We weren't there for long but we made paella in a fire pit in the back yard and slept in a camper and I went ♥________________♥ MOUNTAINS a lot and was generally amazed at the stars.


Starting canning finally tomorrow. alskdf god SUCH a late start on it this summer omg. I am going to have to do like 20 lbs of green beans at ONCE. House is going to get fuck of hot. I would seriously contemplate just doing it naked except I think some folks are going to come over to like, learn how and such and I doubt they'd appreciate it. /jacks AC up to absurd levels.







Auuuuuuuuugh I am like, torn. I stopped writing for a little bit because I got super self-conscious about obnoxiously spamming with a ton of shitty shit shit, so I don't really want to write anything. But at the same time I totally want to write some more crappy obnoxious crappy crap because I am booooooooooooooooooooored.

Maybe I should find a meme. Or do a meme. Or something.


Edit: OH YEAH I FORGOT. I got a random bonus so now all I have to do is call my shop and I can finally get my next tattoo. a;sdlkfj DO THIS NOW ATTI, MAKE THE CALL, QUIT PUTTING IT OFF THE TIME IS NOW

I have largely been avoiding MOST of my normal internets because I am 1) reading A Dance With Dragons like a fiend and b) trying to avoid accidentally spoiling myself for A Dance With Dragons LIKE A MOTHERFUCKING FIEND.

But now I am about four-fifths of the way through, and I mostly expect to finish tonight, so I'm feeling safe enough to venture my toes back in. and if there is anyone who is itching to talk about the book in a very careful-of-spoilers-in-both-directions way...because oh jesus oh jesus oh jesus oh jesus

(tho i am still not going back on tumblr until i am DONE DONE DONE because i don't trust myself at all)




ANYWAY, things that have been going on with me that are not GRRM related:

The weekend before last I went to wedding out in Wisconsin and it was lovely. I am pretty anti-wedding as a general rule and am also not so much of a sappy person, but even my cold bitter heart got a little verklempt. Mostly having to do with seeing people I care about being so stupidly happy aww, but there you are.

(I also discovered what the "Mosquito Belt" means, as we wound up with at least 10-15 mosquitoes in our rental car due to the Terrible Lapse In Judgement that was holding the door open long enough to sit down inside the car. I think I am actually still scratching bites.)


AND NOW, this weekend coming up, we are going to California for the SO's grandmother's 90th birthday. Which means, apparently, [SO] Family Reunion Tiems!!! if i inevitably snap i can totally hide from the cops with one of y'all, right? right? But no, it'll be good, because I really do love the SO's grandmother. She's one rad lady, and it's pretty awesome that we get to do this for her.

Unfortunately, we're going to be in the SanFran area. Not unfortunately because of SanFran, I love SanFran, but because I was kiiiiiiiiiiiind of hoping to be at least a leetle closer to San Diego, in case I needed to take a Retaining My Grip On My Feelings~ break and skip out to people-watch on the outskirts of SDCC. But alas! It is not to be so. :(




Hopefully soon I'll be able to squeeze in some crabs. It feels really long being this far into July and not having had crabs yet.

What's up with all of you?

It's Tuesday, and things are quiet, and I'm about to go heat up some really shitty microwavable taquitos, and you know what that means?

It means it's as good a time as any for a meme.

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.


Nearly anything goes, folks.







meanwhile, off to organize some freakangels panels for a stupid shitty kirk and karl spam, because what idek leave me alone

/copes well with change



ANYWAY. I went to go see Neil Gaiman last night. It was pretty neat! It wasn't for very long, but he talked a little bit about American Gods and told some funny anecdotes and read a little bit from the 10th Anniversary Edition. Which I thankfully did purchase a signed copy of for the SO, because originally I was like WE DO NOT NEED MULTIPLE COPIES OF THE SAME BOOK WE DON'T HAVE ROOM FOR THE BOOKS WE ALREADY HAVE so I wasn't going to, but this new edition has apparently something like 12,000 more words than the original, so, hey! New material!

It was also at the National Press Club, which was pretty groovy, and is also a fucking fantastic building. Even if the elevators to get up to the 13th floor are the itty-bittiest things in the world.

He did actually do a signing, but we opted not to hang around for it. Mainly because a) we wanted to get out of there before we were fifty years old and 2) we would only have thoroughly embarrassed ourselves. Seriously. we are the worst at stuff like this. When we went to a book signing with Al Franken (obviously before he was Senator Al Franken), I just kind of stood there and unintelligibly squeaked at him for about thirty seconds, and the SO managed to say, in the creepiest fucking tone of voice imaginable, "I listen to your show every day." He may have actually forgotten to blink, I don't remember.

Regardless! Meeting authors is something we are bad at, and we decided to escape with our dignity intact for once.



After the reading, we went to grab some quick dinner, and we stumbled upon probably the best find of ever. We found a restaurant/bar. In DC. That sells cigars. And lets you smoke them, *in the restaurant*.

It's like if Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny had a baby, and the baby was full of cigars. a;slekrua;uy

Needless to say, I will be going back. Often.




It's Friday! And I am in a good mood for once! Because it's Friday! And drinking is on the horizon! And because one of my very favorite comics just confirmed something I have been shipping forever but did not expect to actually get! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ALMOST WEEKEND WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Maybe it will get itself unstuck while I am captive on the bus, who knows? /shrug

Meantime, I really do want to write some porn. Unfortunately, due - apparently - to the massive quantities of truly terrible porn I have subjected myself to over the past couple of days (because my car-wreck syndrome is a deep and terrible thing and I do not control it), the porn centers of my brain have all shriveled up and died. I suspect this was some sort of heroic sacrifice meant to spare the rest of my brain the trauma, but it's awfully inconvenient.

Anyone want to give me any suggestions?

I keep telling myself that I'm going to quit unnecessarily spending money. Any day now! I say.

And then I get another goddamn email. From that goddamn deals site. And it contains a really pretty dress. A REALLY pretty dress. One that is all convertible and shit and I wouldn't need to try it on or anything because you can make it be whatever you want it to be.

And I totally need to restock my closet with nice dresses. All those wacky vintage ones I rolled around in in college are just not appropriate any more.

And I shouldn't spend the money even if it IS drastically marked down. But.

But.

I want it.
