Irony: Being in a good enough mood to blog, and thus blogging about all the badness that has transpired since the last time that happened.
Things lost since the last time I posted:
-Eastwood the kitten. Got loose at night about three weeks ago, was found woozy and injured-lookng the next morning, died late that night by what we realized too late was some kind of poisoning. We have no reason to believe it was anything other than a horrible accident.
-Regan. I got caught in a slick spot coming out of a turn and plowed head-on into a bus shelter. I'm completely unhurt, but Regan lost her entire front end. All the damage was to her frame and radiator, though, and her engine was unhurt, so there's still a good possibility she can be fixed.
-Most of my hours at work. There's a new cashier. She's getting more hours than most of the rest of us combined
, despite the fact that she's several thousand kinds of incompetent. Also, she's an old friend of the store manager's. No, that doesn't look dodgy at all
-Money. See above.
-My last shreds of patience regarding my employment. Also see above.
-My health insurance. Well, I've still got a couple weeks to go on that one, but come my birthday I'm no longer covered by my parents' plan. And I won't be able to apply for insurance via work until Novermber
Things gained since the last time I posted:
-Several finished objects. As of today there are only two late Christmas knits that I have yet to finish, although there are four completed ones that still need to be mailed out.
-A booster shot to my faith in humanity, re: the accident mentioned above. I was on my way to work at the time, and the people who stopped to help me recognized me. They not only stayed until my parents and the police showed up, once they were convinced that I was being taken care of one of them went down to the store to let my boss know what had happened so I wouldn't get counted as AWOL.
-Free time. Now that the knitting is seeming less like a looming, oppressive force of DOOM, I'm sneaking away from it to do pony work again. Nebula, at least, should be finished fairly soon.
-A teensy bit of writing. Fanfic is in the doldrums at the moment (well, postable fic; most of my writing energy is going towards a MASSIVE EPIC that I can't post pieces of until I have a better framework), but I do have a longish little squeeze of original superhero fiction I've managed to do. If there's any interest, I'll post it here for the entertainment of the masses.
-A Youtube account
. Only one video finished so far, but more on the way.
As Eddie Izzard would say, "So...yeah."
