Say It. I Dare You.

I should not need the fluffiest socks I own, a long sleeve shirt, sweater, blanket and (of course) pants to be warm in my own apartment!

I should be able to walk around buck naked and be toasty (especially with the heat turned all the way up).

I think the ice on my balcony door is a sign. Probably whatever is causing that massive ice build up is also causing all the heat in the place to disappear.

Anyone wanna come warm me up? Or better, anyone have a warm place I can escape to with my two kitties (however much I like them cuddling, I know they are cuddling solely for my body heat and that it has nothing to do with them actually liking me).

Not sure if it'll help or hinder, Minxy, but what about telling her you think some time apart will be good for you guys? She might be more willing to leave if she thinks there is a chance?

Good luck....TONSofHUGSandIceCream!

If we really get a foot of snow overnight, I'm going to be angry.

Not that there's any point in bothering.

Yeah. I think that will have to be the route I take.

Next time she tries to talk about it I will say that. Probably tonight, depending on what time she gets home from work.

B-wavy-- are you getting any of this mess? So far, we have been lucky. Raining fairly hard but no power outage. Hope you are okay!

I really wish I was still going to So-Cal regularly, heck for any reason. I would kick that chick out, kick Minxy's butt for waiting so long, and then give her a hug and take her out for drinks

The more real it becomes that this is over, the more I hate this whole ****. That every evening is spent talking about my crappy relationship instead of enjoying myself alone or doing ANY. F-ING. THING.

How am I supposed to focus on anything.




in other news, remember my teacher who has yet to change my grade? I went to see her and she was like "i Haven't done it yet, it's still on my board" (the form to turn in). It's funny because in her email she said she turned the form in. (2 weeks ago)

CIBC, I am so sorry. I want to say something substantial about how much cancer sucks for stealing our loved ones from us and the world but the words won't come. I just think back to the cards I've read from people my grandpa mentored over the years and the way the sense of unfairness ebbed and flowed beneath the balm of knowing how much good he'd done for the world. I'm sorry your cousin couldn't stick around to do even more good and continue to inspire everyone around him. I'm sending tons of ((((HUGS)))) for all of you.

Scrills, you get many hugs, too. Having someone relate about feeling cheated by their loved one's death is really helpful, but it sucks that you are feeling it. I hope you are always able to mentally respond to the thought of that last conversation with memories of others that don't bear that sting. It also couldn't hurt to remember how worthy you are of her pride regardless of marital status. Plus, spirits have forever to just chill and wait to see things and they don't seem to mind. [There are also some hugs thrown in for your sulfite allergy and some futile attempts to punch it in the face it doesn't have.]

I went with my mom and grandma to pick up my grandpa's ashes yesterday. Even though the cancer had progressed to eating his bones during the past few years, from the decades of running he did, they remained super strong, making his ashes denser than most. The lady who gave them to us made a point of bringing this up, elaborating that it doesn't matter how heavy you are, that soft stuff just burns right off, and most people don't fill up the box with their ashes because they don't have that sheer athletic bone density. Grandpa, the cancer may have ostensibly weakened you, but literally deep in your bones, you were and are so strong. You should pat yourself on your non-corporeal back for that.

I carried him out to the car. The box was in an ordinary paper bag with flimsy handles on it. It felt so solid and it was so surreal carrying what used to be a person in this dense cubical mass clutched to my chest. This was my grandfather's body, but now it had corners. It didn't even occur to me until now that it's doubly weird that Grandpa rode home in the trunk of my mom's car. Sort of. Even on the night he died, I knew he wasn't in that body anymore.

He won medals in the Navy. My mom was like, hey, how come I didn't know about that? Where are these medals? I also found out about his last wishes, of which there were three. The way my grandma worded this when she brought it up, it sounded like it's a Thing to have three last wishes. I don't know, maybe it's just that wishes are known for going in groups of three. I hope my uncle really takes in the one about his family getting counseling to deal with his death - he wasn't afraid to extend our hug when they took Grandpa away, but after that, he has not exactly been open to the idea of needing help or comfort from anyone. Also, how amazing is my grandpa for making that the chief of his last wishes.

The next was for everyone to remember him from before he got so sick.There is no chance of us remembering his cancer more than him. Screw cancer. And the third was how he wished to be remembered: "I tried my best." There are not enough tissues in the world. That he summed up his life this way proves beyond a shadow of a doubt how incredible he was (and is, in whatever form he's taken). He tried his best and he always succeeded in giving the world his best, which was so clearly the best that people were still calling to pick his brains practically up until the end.

How has it been nearly two weeks since he died? In other what-sense-does-this-make news, they sell urns for people's ashes at Costco. I don't know, it's not utter nonsense for Costco to sell urns, it's just like...that goes way farther than the kitchen sink.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.

I am thinking of things other than my grandpa's death. I'm even thinking of fun things, like how I really, really need to watch the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I love Pride & Prejudice so much that I could watch the BBC miniseries adaptation every week for all eternity, so there's no logical reason why I didn't run to it the moment I became aware of its existence. People I like on Youtube were singing its praises months ago. And now I find out that it's full of mancandy and it has tons of interconnected channels and such? I love that kind of thing! I've watched the first season (which actually had to try to make some sort of funky sense for awhile) of lonelygirl15 three times for this reason - and LG15 is not exactly a paragon of good writing and acting. By which I mean HOLY WRITING FAIL, BATMAN. But I am absolutely planning on watching it again because I am so enamored of its potential...I'm just gonna have to stop well before the end because oh my word, I did not know there were so many sharks to jump. But yeah, anyway, LBD. Gotta get on that. When it's not ridiculous o'clock, of course.

I feel practically legally required to come back and add that if anyone was confused, LG15 was NOT full of mancandy. It did, however, have lots of interconnected channels that showed all these different perspectives and story fragments and OMG the places it could have gone with that. (If anyone reading is in the group that watched thinking it was real at first and then felt betrayed, I only came in after the fact, so I have no opinion on whether the producers wronged their viewers by doing that. I kind of wish I'd been around to watch that madness unfold.)

I also feel compelled to admit that I actually watched the second and third seasons, too. But only once. Ugh, it was out of pure completionist compulsion that I bothered watching those.

OMG. It's so hilarious in my non science classes how babied the students are. They literally CRIED to my professor because she wasn't giving a study guide, they CRIED and almost cursed her out because she didn't put up powerpoints. And then when she skipped a slide, they attacked her to know if it was on the test.

I can't with them! I haven't had a study guide since high school. Earth doesn't' give you a study guide in real life, quit looking for the easy ways out. Jeez.

Who expects a study guide in college? You're grown-ups now, fools! I guess this confirms that extensive study guides being taken as a given is a GE thing and not a college science thing.
OMG, LOOK!!

Omg. I'm getting angry at the thought of people crying about lack of study guides! I would NEVER expect a study guide in any of my major requirements or even major/general electives either. And I'm a lazy liberal arts student!

College students are literally the worst.

Speaking of college, I'm really sick of participation points. The only reason why anyone else in my classes gets participation points is because they're idiots and ask dumb questions, or they ramble on about something that isn't even REMOTELY related to the topic at hand. And I'M the one not getting points? I'm listening intently and taking notes!
