In yesterday's post, we met Sakura, and we saw her getting in trouble by kidnapping an enslaved serving girl in order to set her free.

Part II is the conclusion to her first adventure.



With your trademark Sakai Twist™ )

Sakura is slated to return, according to Stan Sakai, but I've seen no indication of her comeback so far.

It's sort of early for me, but I'm so damn tired that I might end up going to bed pretty soon. I'm not sure why I'm so tired, but damn, I really, really am. Then again, it might have something to do with the fact that I'm just about the only one at the office who isn't actually sick. How much longer that will go on, I don't know, but I can't afford to take any more sick time. I'm already going to burn through all that I have with the appointments and surgery next month.

I'm grateful that this didn't happen until I started at this job with insurance, but it's bringing through my available leave hours like no one's business. I mean, granted, I don't have many, but still, what I do have is about to all be gone by the end of the year. At least two of my appointments are after the break starts, so I don't have to use leave for them.

But mostly I'm going to be glad not to be bleeding all the time. Seriously, all the time. It's gotten to the point where I don't even tell my coworkers that I'm going to the bathroom. I just say "I'm going to go check the crime scene," and they know what I mean. Well, not Richard, because the four of us women try to shield him a bit, and not Chris, because he's the boss and never there, but still. LaTrease, Glynda, Anastasia, and I know what "the crime scene" means. It's become office code already.

I'm just so off in la-la land right now that it's almost funny. I want to be writing. I have ideas for writing. I have a bit of actual fluff going... instead of the pain and angst I've usually got going. But no, I'm too tired to do anything even vaguely effective for writing. I've had a relatively cramp-free set of days, and apparently that leads to fluff. I know, when I'm cramping or changing pads every hour or two, that's when I end up torturing characters. Oh my gods, but do I end up torturing characters. I've had entire verses spun out of how badly the cramps suck, where I end up tormenting characters more than is right or proper. (And thus the Worst Case Scenario verses were born. FYI.)

And yeah, I'm so out of it. I'm just gonna finish this up and go throw myself at my bed. So long, my freaky darlings.

good things of late

Stunning views of Mt. Hood on the drive home on a couple of clear days lately.

Autumn leaves!!! The red-violets, the scarlets, the golden yellows, the lemon-lime yellow-greens, the rich bronzes, the purples and olive-greens! The chiaroscuro of wind movement, the ombre effect of different amounts of light on different heights, the subtle changes day to day!

Talked to my sibling B last weekend. They are doing well, being absurdly domestic with their adorkable partner, and in touch with our parents.

Noticed feeling unusually upbeat in car on the way home, compared to usual after-work blahs.

signal boost: anyone in California?

A friend of a friend is looking for an apartment to share and/or a place to crash while apartment-hunting.

If this is not you, but you think you might know someone who knows someone, please boost the signal! You might save someone's life.

https://balsamandash.dreamwidth.org/107706.html


I mentioned a friend looking for roommates in California earlier this month. She's still looking, and it's getting bad -- the end of this month means basically be homeless in LA or come back to Florida, and both of those are gonna be really hard on her mental health. So I'm putting out the word again and hoping some kind of miracle comes through.

If anybody is looking for a roommate in the downtown LA/Hollywood/Wilshire area -- or knows somebody looking for, or knows someone who might be looking for, or knows someone who might know someone, or any kind of lead at all -- please, please hit me up and I can get people in touch with her. Or honestly, at this point, if anyone knows somebody in other areas of California willing to house a couch surfer for a month to give her a little more time to look, I can send that to her and maybe she can work things out. She's not good with dogs or cats but other pets are not a problem, and ideally looking to pay around $600/month.
EDIT: After some discussion, if there's anyone in the area of San Diego -- or possibly anything else within about that far from LA (so 2-3 hours, so not all the way up the state but a much larger range than before) -- that might be able to put somebody up for a couple of weeks to a month, that would be really appreciated as well, as it would give her more time to try and look.

Help seriously, greatly appreciated. I'm really worried about how this is going to end up.


Ask [personal profile] balsamandash for more details.

I'm dealing with stomach flu that is keeping me up nights. Not fun. Today I slept like a rock -- until noon. I'm starting to feel better -- but I have no real concentration.

So I'm not doing links again until I feel competent. I used all my competence for today in posting my Stage of Fools story.

But I am reading whatever y'all write, and glad of it.

FMK #27: Judge A Book By Its Title

[personal profile] melannen
Last week's winners were not what I expected! But F goes to The Red Tent and K goes to The Magicians (which is WAY more hated than I had realized! For good reason apparently.)

How FMK works, short version: I am trying to clear out my unreads. So there is a poll, in which you get to pick F, M, or K. F means I should spend a night of wild passion with the book ASAP, and then decide whether to keep it or not. M means I should continue to commit to a long-term relationship of sharing my bedroom with it. K means it should go away immediately. Anyone can vote, you don't have to actually know anything about the books.

I pick a winner on Friday night (although won't actually close the poll, people can still vote,) and report results/ post the new poll on the following Tuesday, and write a response to the F winner sometime in the next week.

Link to long version of explanation (on first poll)

This week's theme: I have no idea what this book is about, I'm pretty sure I only have it for the title.

Poll: Bail, Capote, Carey, Collins, Connors, Corliss, Ericson, Galloway, Gould, Morse, Shann, Shreve, Townsend, Wodehouse )
