–I hate it when WordPress signs me out of the blog. Yes, I know it’s just an extra step. Yet I am still annoyed whenever I have to go back to wordpress.com and enter my vitals.
–My knitting is aggravating my shoulder of all things. My body conspires against me.
–Got some word on the new Federal Pain Medication protocols. I was going to write a whole post about it but really, why bother? It’s the same thing as the gun “control” protocols. More hoops for the law-abiding to jump through. Hoops that the folks with the real problems have long ago figured a way around. At least they’ve not included short-acting meds in the legislation. That’s a boon for those of us who don’t (yet) need the time-release long-acting opiates.
–I made it to the RiffTrax Live! event last night, which you know if you are a Facebook Friend, because I didn’t stop yammering about it. I was soooo thrilled to be able to go. Although I’m getting too close to menopause to sit under hot lights, apparently. All that sweaty whining aside, can I just say it was a dream come true? When I first moved to town I knew no one other than my hubby and my co-workers at the three very crap low-paying jobs I had. (typist, office assistant, part-time travel agent) I discovered Joel and the ‘Bots one lonely Friday while my husband was working the night shift in the children’s mental institution. Yes, the first years in Nashville were a sort of Dickensian nightmare. Anyway, MST3K was a lifeline for me. A surrogate family. A reminder of high school and college friends who would snark over movies with me. So yeah, the whole RiffTrax gang is like a set of old friends, and getting to finally see them in person was a huge, huge treat.
–I finally got to meet @hollywoodron! I think he’s a cousin of Ivy’s or something like that. I’m not sure anymore how exactly I first met half of the friends I have, but they’re always there on FB and Twitter and when we occasionally get to bump into each other in the flesh it’s a huge treat. Crystal was there too, and that was quite awesome. Don’t think I’ve seen her in the flesh since the legendary hen party at Mack’s farm. Sadly, Holly wasn’t there. I would have loved to have seen her, since I only got to chat briefly with her the last time we shared the same air. But of course the heat and crowds and prohibitive ticket prices aren’t for everyone. Heck, they aren’t really for me. Now that I’ve done it once I think I’ll do future RLive! events at the remote theatre locations. It’s dark and air conditioned and half price.
–My beloved is at his glass class. It’s a makeup session since he missed last night. He’s taken to this glasscraft thing in a way that’s sort of scary, but very cool. Tonight is welding, and after that he’s good to be on his own with Copper Foil/Tiffany method. Leaded Glass is in the spring. I eagerly await many Celtic patterns…
–I’m thinking of looking for Beta readers for sections of my book. If you’re interested in Beta reading a WiP, let me know.
