Yesterday I think most of the afternoon I was in shock. I got my hair done as planned (when my stylist called me at work I said my afternoon had become much more open than I expected, and would she like me to come in early), then went to the Comet for the not-working-man's Happy Hour ($2 pints of Spire Apple Cider, $1.75 Labatts, not that I'd touch that shit with a ten foot pole). Over a game of Hunters and Gatherers I slowly became morose, realizing that for all that I only had that job for six weeks that I actually liked it and didn't want to give it up. We went to Mesob for mahjong afterwards, and I began to feel like I was just going to spontaneously burst into tears, and although I don't have a problem with displaying my emotions I have decided that I prefer to keep the ones that freak people out private, so shortly after Cathi, Jessica, Nina, and Mike showed up we split to the home front and argued about whether or not to keep the white dog.
I was up far too early today (I had to wait for almost two hours before I could leave to go to lunch) and spent the morning doing some yardwork and generally picking up the house. Lunch was with dagmar_b and shadowdaddy at Sergio's. Worthy Opponent gave me a adorable antique card, as it is our tenth anniversary today, and it got me all mushy. Too bad he didn't get me Working DSL! Then I wouldn't have to be here using his computer right now.
Afterwards, I ran some errands (Petsmart, bookstore), and now I am hoping to get a resume off to Highwire. When I leave, I am planning on picking up my severance check, hitting Kinokuniya for a book on How To Draw Manga, then going to Christopher's house (the game designer guy I met at the con) to pick up all of the games I inadvertently left in Ballard on Saturday. Tonight we're celebrating our anniversary with a DCLU meeting. I know, it's just too exciting for words.
I am looking forward to an exciting Friday, what with the 4:45 Matrix (no problem leaving for work early as it turns out) and the party at motomotoyama's house before I go home and pack for our trip. I am guessing I won't be writing tomorrow unless we get the DSL up and running at home, so don't think I've given up altogether, I promise I'll post again.
