This should make for an interesting bike ride home.

ETA: Made it home in one piece and my intestines still fulla junk. I know you're all relieved. I even did some grocery shopping. Nao moar hedexplodey y/y.

My mom had her birthday today, so I called her and wished her well. She celebrated all weekend with Shelley and it sounds like they had a grand time. She sounded calm and content, which is all I wish for her. She still misses her grandson, but who wouldn't? He's in hell Texas and can't see him as much as she'd like.

She is fond of saying that her birthday comes on the same week as Tax Day and the sinking of the Titanic. I tell her good things come in threes.*


*I DID NOT SAY THAT. I love my mother. We argue and bicker to show that we care.

Or Happy Autumn to you nice Antipodeans or whatever the hell you call yourself down there.

I come bearing random bits and bobs.

Today I saw lots of little green points poking their way out of the soil, so it looks like a lot of the iris bulbs I got through Freecycle last fall are doing their job, hooray! I did a little tiny peanut dance in celebration, and a little tiny good luck peanut dance as we're supposed to get a billion feet of snow starting sometime tonight.

The megachurch held a pastor school or some such slop this week. )

Someone this week asked me what my Eat More Kale bumpersticker meant. (...) It's complicated.

Last night I put the finishing touches on my vegan banana nut muffins and chocolate chip cookies for the Humane Society bake sale, and I think they turned out really well this time. The recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance is a great starting point-- I especially like the tablespoon of molasses, it's a nice kick-- but it really needs some whizzed silken tofu to bind everything together better. Vali thinks I'm mental, that god made milk, eggs, and cream specifically for dessert. And I really can't argue, but I like the novelty of it. I've become much like my dad, except I tinker in the kitchen and he tinkers in the garage. I also did a very 'Dad' thing when I saw an empty tupperware container blow by me in the parking lot-- namely, run after it, stick it in the car, and take it home to be washed. Economy! (eyeroll)

I have fallen in love with this cat. He is a ginormously shy fraidy cat that will curl up and purr and make little paws on you in less than ten minutes of cooing and brushing. I think I'm gonna stick him in my bag next time I go over to the shelter.

I've finished course 2 in my Spanish audio lessons. Only one more to go! *collapses* I can't believe I started this like three years ago.

So I've decided I want to watch last night's Torchwood ep, but only for the good Jack/Ianto articles. Someone help a poor fangirl out with Youtube links please?
