with help and understanding from the important people in my life it's
been getting better towards the weekend. I did have to cancel my
plans with cassiopia on Thursday, but with luck we can
reschedule soon after I get my next paycheck. This weekend should be
fun even though I don't have any money.
Last Sunday morning lildomino picked me up and took me with
her to her family reunion. It was fun meeting more of her family and
enjoying yummy food. When we got back to Indy we went to Kinko's so
LilDomino could mail schoolbooks, and then I went with her to work and
printed stuff for my Dollship of Doom. I've been depressed lately, but
LilDomino endured my crappy mood and did what she could to make me
Monday is usually my MUX night, but icespark wanted to help
me work on my Dollship of Doom. Since IceSpark and I had bought
office supplies Saturday night, and LilDomino had let me print stuff
while I with her to Kinko's, I had most everything ready. IceSpark
and I got a lot of progress done, and will post pictures after the
campaign – I want the ship itself to be a surprise to most of the
Tuesday night mishiell came over after getting her headlight
replaced, and arrived at the exact moment as the Chinese food I'd
ordered. Remarking on her perfect timing, I led her upstairs and we
ate sitting on my bed and talking. After dinner we finished her D&D
character and then snuggled until Mishiell passed out early (10 PM).
It took me a long time to fall asleep, but it was pleasant to have
Mishiell here to cuddle.
Wednesday night after work I stopped by my apartment and then headed
to LilDomino's to pick her up. Grabbing some food on the way, we
wound up doubling back to my place to see if a check from my mom had
arrived, but no luck. Unfortunately, a quick scan of my finances
revealed I was about $40 short of the rent check I'd dropped off on
the 5th, with no money left for the $315 student loan bill due next
Unfortunately, this poverty led me to have to cancel my plans with
Cassiopia, which I'd been looking forward to since New Year's Eve. B(
It may have been for the best, since the self-same poverty led me to
make some questionable decisions about what might still be edible in
the work fridge. When I felt better IceSpark took me out for
non-poisonous food, and LilDomino made me some lunches so the same
thing wouldn't happen again.
Friday I was a little less stressed since LilDomino lent me money to
cover my bills until my next paycheck, as long as I'm frugal. After
work I went over to salamander42 and pandara's to
work on their D&D characters. I headed back at 11 so LilDomino could
come over and hot tub and I could get my suit ready for today and
still get to bed at a decent time. We watched a little Colbert
Report and then went to sleep.
Today I went into work early so I could leave early to go to Brbe and
ewysiwyg's wedding. I'm going to be an usher, although if
the weather is bad I'm not going to get down there as early as volta_girl would like. Still, IceSpark is picking me up so we
can head down immediately when I clock out here. After the wedding
IceSpark and I are going to Roller Ball with IceSpark's derby league.
Tomorrow I'm going to celebrate Pandara's birthday with her a little
early, and the rest of the week I'll probably lie low until payday,
working on the D&D campaign I'm going to start next Saturday (eep!).
IceSpark and I are planning to go see Repo the Genetic Opera
Wednesday, so that should be all different flavors of awesome. The
D&D campaign I'm worried about, since I'll be trying something
different, and just have to hope it works out. Wish me luck!
