I got looking at the internet instead of showering or making this post.

Knitting earlier, and before that I went to dinner with two of my friends. It was nice, though the cider I had was not great - bitter.

Work was fine and I finished another project. I'm close to done the third, and can probably wrap it up tomorrow if I buckle down. I want to leave a little early,as I have LARP this weekend, but we'll see, I guess!

Today work was still busy but I had a harder time concentrating, pleh.

Tonight, my BiL passed out on the floor downstairs after bringing the kids home from camp. Apparently he told the kids his stomach hurt, but I think this is all a result of making Poor Sleep Decisions. He'd gone upstairs to lie down in bed by the time I got home, though I think he went there pretty directly and didn't actually have dinner or anything. Longpig and I took over the kids' bedtime routine, but he "woke up" part way through me giving them a bath, and when I say woke up I mean not at all. He came in to the bathroom holding one of their stuffed animals, and stepped directly in the bath, still fully clothed. I told him to go take off his wet pants and go back to bed, and he seemingly complied? It was kind of like when you are playing a game with someone and they do exactly what you tell them and no more no less, so I had to be very precise or else I think he would have just laid down on the bathroom floor when I first told him to just go back to sleep :p

Later he came out again when I was trying to find the new bottle of mouthwash for the kids. He had brought out a box of goodnights, probably because he thought they would be needed? (They weren't, afaik), and I just asked him, not realizing he was still/again sleepwalking. At first he passed me a different bottle of mouthwash, and I thought he was being glib, but at one point he actually spoke and then I realized that no, definitely still sleepwalking. He did find the mouthwash though! It was under the sink. And then he went back to bed where he has so far stayed put. So weird. I wonder if he will remember any of this tomorrow.... I'm betting no.

He does have a history of this though, and especially when sleep deprived. Longpig's response when I told her this later was "Okay, now imagine him doing that only he is carrying your baby." eep! But I know that happened, too. He got up to check a crying kid but was not actually awake at all, and she had to get him to hand over the baby (I forget which one). That wold have been concerning. This at least was mostly just bizarre and bemusing.

I have also been making poor sleep choices, so I am going to head to bed after I throw together my larp gear.

I feel like I've done a million things. I have done a *lot* of things - work has been very busy, mostly playing catch up with reports. Surprise! Overdue reports! Ones that other people (guess who) were meant to complete and just decided not to, I guess?

Anyway. I can't complain about being bored, certainly.

I wound my walnut yarn and got the ball started for my larp shawl. I still need to mend my larp *shirt* since I did not get a new one made yet. I had visions of setting up downstairs after the kids were in bed to iron and cut and... lol no.

My phone is having Issues. It suddenly hates running Pokemo Go ;_; I am not sure what the problem is as it happened suddenly and not directly after any particular change. I can get ti to open once, and then it crashes and I can;t see any of my apps either on my...desktop? whatever you call that, or if I pull up the apps menu. If I go into settings I can open them from there. I sort of suspect my SD card might be partly to blame, as it has been having issues anyway, so I ordered a new one, along with some new charge cords of various lengths. I need to get stuff off my phone onto my external drive..... I'd meant to do that tonight and forgotten, but I guess I can take the external to work and set it up tomorrow :p

I watched the Vice footage from Charlottesville and it was so awful it completely ate my energy reserves for dealing with SJ stuff for the night, which resulted in me blocking stuff I would usually ignore or try to gently correct. Now I wonder whether, if you block all the horrible pages people share things from, you will wind up with a really warped perspective of who they are. Edit your friends into acceptability?

Anyway, there is a solidarity thing tomorrow evening downtown, and I might go after I deal with dinner, dogs, etc, but by then it will have been going on for an hour and I am not sure how long it is meant to last? Also I do still need to mend my larp shirt. And find a new cord to lace my bodice, I guess :/

I'm sure, as always, I had other things to say. But at least this is a post, before midnight, and fairly substantial! I'm still going to bed now, though

A quickie, because I'm a cool gal who goes to bed early on Saturdays apparently.

-We are dogsitting Argo for Nary and Co while they accomplish their move. Forthright + kid were here for a bit this am to drop him off.
-I got to go on legendary pokemon raids! Only my phone was almost dead and it was behaving like shit, and I didn't actually catch a zapdos :( But still!
-I made sumac drink and it is tasty!
-I started writing a new fic, but just barely

other than that, a quick errand to the store and too much tumblr, and that's basically my day.

Whoops!

Me, earlier: I'm going to do so many things tonight! I'm going to make a lvl 1 character, maybe level my character for the fuck squad, and start writing a story!

Me, more recently: I'm going to half-ass a lvl 1 character and 'catch up' on tumblr.

yeah....

I did fix the flotation machine at work though! With help. But it had rocks in it @_@ There....should not be rocks in in @_@

Someday, maybe you will get a real update with real interesting thoughts and considerations. I have ideas for them all the time. But never time *and* energy *and* the memory of what I wanted to write about all happening in coordination. So instead this is what you get. Huzzah?

If there is anything you ever want me to write about, drop me a comment/reply/ask/whatever and I'll do my best to satisfy!

I sat in on a meeting and tour today with some of the minds behind Reblink - an awesome AR exhibit that's currently open at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

So many ideas so little money.

Today was The Fuck Squad, for gaming. Poor Rhonia doesn't know what she wants in that regard. She looted gold and cake, because everyone else was looting. But they took nipple rings, porn, and a jewel encrusted dildo. Everyone else is sexy. Rhonia is just terrifying.

There was a huge power outage in town today, so I didn't miss too much while I was in for my dentist appointment (which had power, whew!). But when I was headed in, the traffic lights were out, and I needed to cross a very busy street, so instead I did a bit of exploring to get to the underpass, and then since that spits me out right by the entrance to the nature walk behind the museum, I took the scenic route in. It was pleasant, except for the steep slope down to the creek and uneven footing on some of the paths triggering some of my fear of falling. Also could have dine without the bugs. But it was nice, on the whole!

But all of this just added another weird day to a weird week.

I keep forgetting yesterday was Monday :P

And I have a dentist appointment on Thursday. It's a weird week.

It was a weird day at work! I was chasing information around and attending impromptu meetings and calling people and stuff and *whew*! Busy.

I posted my galra mini exchange fic, not sure what I'm writing next:

Army of One (1063 words) by Measured_Words

Fandom: Voltron: Legendary Defender
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply

No children were murdered! I did have to almost put myself in timeout a few times, but they always balked and then settled down a bit when I told them I was done with them and was going to hide in my room. I think I let them have too much sugar today, but we are out of milk except chocolate milk, and a friend brought them chocolate cookies, and so on >.>

They really were good most of the day, though, but I was ill :/ They remind me of longpig and I when we were kids, good and bad.

Anyway, I managed without parents, but with help, for four days! And back to work tomorrow. And maybe some kind of other normalcy as well?

I'm tiiiired. Kids are waking me up before 7.

I'm probably going to go to bed around 10. The fam will be home tomorrow night at some point.... probably late. I have to work on Tuesday. So more sleep is definitely better, and I'm not going to get in on the morning side.

It was nice to have company and assistance over the weekend. Tomorrow I won't, so that will be exciting. Bubby is already refusing to come to take the dogs out -__-

Okay. I think I should just go to bed. Coherency can be a tomorrow problem...
