Thanks to everyone who commented on the last post.

I'm okay! I actually ended up spending most of the day alone, watching SVU and playing on Pinterest. Mom and my sister went to places but I really resent my sister inviting herself over like she did (and she knew it) so I elected to be alone.

Let's see. I'll get back to fandom soon.

Alright, let me make an actual post instead of just fic and card claims, haha.

I spent all day watching the first half of season 14 of SVU so I could get more familiar with Barba's character (I have not seen most of these episodes! How have I already written fic, this is terrible!) and now I'm watching Fear the Walking Dead (which is actually interesting this season, what a shock!).

For original fiction writers, this showed up on my twitter timeline: JMS is having a submission call for Food of Love (LGBT romance stories). It sounds like a cute and fun call. :3

Facebook continues to be a mistake; one of my half-brothers contacted me. I'm super not interested in talking to this man. For one thing, we haven't spoken for at least 22 years. For another thing, he never reached out to my dad. My mom tried so hard to find dad's kids for him and she couldn't do it, and they certainly never reached out to us, and now dad is gone. I certainly don't have any interest in talking to pretty much anyone on my father's side of the family. Like, thanks but no thanks, you know? I dunno. I will probably just never respond.

I don't know how people recuperate from family being over for a week but I'm absolutely exhausted and I gotta go to work in about 30 minutes, so here's a more substantial update, haha.

There's was no drama between the people I thought there would be. There was certainly a great deal of disgust towards my niece (who is also that annoying boss I've mentioned) and her jackass boyfriend making out and shit at the baby's birthday party. This woman is 30 years old and was acting like a horny teenager. But for the family who were actually visiting from out of town, no drama, no arguing, it actually went well.

There are a lot of babies in this family. I held all of them.

It's so weird because okay, C and her daughters were visiting and C has always been my best friend but it's so weird how very much we're not on the same wavelength anymore. It really, really sucks. I mean, we still get along well and laugh and have good times but we're not, like, in each others brains anymore. Which, that's something we've both noticed before but it was so much more evident during this trip. I blame the baby, haha. But seriously, it really just means that our lives are going in different directions (while she's very much still interested in geeky shit, she's also very much into motherhood and being a new mother and it's true that babies tend to...take over everything. And you know, we also live half of the US away from each other which I'm sure has a big part to play. I don't know. The idea of drifting apart is normal, I guess, but it's also awful.

A friend came down from Tennessee and brought me a Tardis toy that lights up and makes sounds. He didn't realize I've not watched any new Who, haha. So I guess I'll have to do that now.

On Monday, we went to the mall! I didn't know there was a ThinkGeek store there. *___* So many Funko Pops. Also, while there we went to Sephora and I picked up the Modern Renaissance palette and some new eyeliner, and then C bought me the Make Believe in Yourself palette. Guys, I adore makeup and while I don't wear it to work (because dog hair floats everywhere) I do wear it quite a lot. :3

More fandom oriented update to come soon-ish, I just don't want this entry to be muddied.

So yeah, I finally tried out the latest messaging system so if you want to chat sometime, my Discord tag is nanners#7965. :D I really like this app, even though I've only used it with [personal profile] imperion so far. So yeah, if ya want to talk about stuff, hit me up, I guess! I miss chatting with people in fandom. :3

I just want to go back to the coffee shop and write more. ;3; It was so nice last night. Why is work a thing that has to happen now? I'm going to try to post another thing today. That's the only way I'm going to actually meet my June goals, haha. I just have to remember that not everything has to reach 1000 words. Like, that's super not necessary, me, let things be shorter than 500 words for once, dang. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS EXPLICIT CONTEXT, CONTEXT CAN BE SUGGESTED.

This week starts hell week, with one set of family in town that I want to see and one set of family that I absolutely don't want to see. So I'm going to my best with that balancing act, because I'm not someone who thinks I should tolerate homophobic Trump supporters just because they're family. So I don't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'm going to try not to stress about it.

;;;;;

Today is absolutely a mental health day. I was not okay yesterday but I still managed to go to work, pick up my niece from where her car broke down, then accompany my great-niece to the damn airport (the Atlanta airport which is both a hellish drive and a hellish airport, but we ate at IHOP which is always nice). Then I woke up this morning and was like nopenopenope I can't do this today.

The good thing is I absolutely know what's causing and that event isn't coming and going until a couple of weeks so I gotta just. Power through this.

Anyway, I'm poking at fics tonight and seeing what I can write. [personal profile] imperion got me thinking about simblers and Sim storied again and I'm just like hmmm. :\a The Sims 4: Parenthood DLC came out today but I don't have money to buy that and won't have it for a couple of weeks, which is a bummer. :(

Many thanks for the well wishes and hugs from my last post. Hugs are always welcomed and appreciated. ♥ ♥

I'm taking Dad to the hospital today for his first round of testing. I'll probably be spending a goodly portion of it in the waiting room so hopefully I can manage to get some quality sketches in.

Thanks for your support, guys. I'll keep you updated.
