Who Am I If I Am Not Myself?

I dragged through the day at work yesterday - well, the parts where I was asleep went rapidly.  And I did get a little done, so it wasn't a total loss.

Then I took off for Stuart&Frida's.  Much the usual, good food, good company.  Stuart and I went out and grabbed a couple of movies - we just watched the one, I Heart Huckabees.

Cute, cute film.  I'm amazed it got made in this country - requires way too much thinking.  I can also see where a lot of people wouldn't care for it - in fact Frida wandered off, bored, about halfway through.

But I had a really good time.  I may even buy the film...

I also noticed that "The Cat Returns" is available, which I didn't know.  I'm going to have to snag a copy of that somewhere.

Otherwise, I'm busily trying to motivate myself to get up and out of here.  I'm going through another failed attempt to get my phone to sync properly with the desktop right now.  Apparently a memo somewhere blows up the process - probably that list of unpaid days from Paula...

Wherever the Wind Blows...


~ 66% Water ~ 70% Wind ~ 48% Earth ~ 48% Fire ~

Your colours are the dark green of the sea and silver, but also azure
and gold. You are likely romantic, gentle, intelligent and curious.
However, you may sometimes appear moody or weary. You could try wearing
a Sardonyx; it inspires stamina, energy and creativity and thus brings you a bit closer to harmony.

In detail:

Your Heart Chakra, which is associated with the element of water and represents our sense of love and compassion, and your Throat Chakra, which is associated with the element of wind and represents our desire to learn and communicate, are predominant.

Your Ground Chakra, which is associated with the element of fire and represents our basic desires and driving force, and your Creative Chakra, which is associated with the element of earth and represents our need to preserve and grow, are not quite as prominent.

These are the results you will get if you score highly on...

None of the four elements: Balance Wind: Gust Fire: Blaze Water: River Earth: Valley Wind & Fire: Thunder Wind & Water: Clouds Wind & Earth: Canyon Fire & Earth: Lava Fire & Water: Tornado Water & Earth: Trees Wind, Fire & Earth: Storm Wind, Fire & Water: Stars Wind, Water & Earth: Forest Fire, Water & Earth: Avalanche All four elements: Harmony

Just Like the Old Days

I never made it to work today. This is OK - I got a fair amount done at home. However, the reason...

I was getting ready to head on up and install some code when Trudi asked if she could come over and use my computer. So, what the hell - I did some more work on the laptop while she used my desktop to do some financial aid paperwork and search for jobs.

A little background - she's living down the street with her cousin Julia, and Julia's son.

What I didn't know was that she was supposed to pick up Julia's son from school - and got so involved with the web stuff, that she made herself an hour late.

Julia was, I gather, not pleased. I got a call just as I was, again, heading out, from a panicked Trudi. She was in Sunnyvale, at Julia's work, and Julia was being a tad loud.

OK, she was apparently screaming at the top of her lungs.

So, I did my usual white knight bit, picked her up, drove her to her 6:00 class at Evergreen, hung around (Eating dinner) until she was through, then let her stay in my room rather than go back to Julia's.

So on the positive side, there should be someone cuddly in my bed when I get home. On the negative side, well, there's a question of trust and suspicion.

I didn't actually hear Julia being abusive. Trudi's talking about needing to move away, "possibly back to the shelter."

Hint hint.

It doesn't help that she apparently told Mena that she had her IUD removed - but hasn't mentioned a word of that to me...

Sigh. Ah well. The show tonight is going very nicely. Both cekyr0 and sugarbare are here on their birthday. misswong77 graced us with her presence and a song.

I just got a slip from a cute little rockabilly girl.

And we have a nice crowd going otherwise. Life is good, at least for the moment.
