D&D game, but everyone seemed to have a good time. I finally got
to talk to mishiell about the problems I've been having with
out relationship, and that cleared up much of the cloud of depression
that's been hanging over me for months.
The Sunday night before last I met up with pandara to
celebrate her birthday. I couldn't afford to take her out to dinner,
so we just ordered Chinese food and stayed in. We got some time alone
and got to sleep in together since I'm off work most Mondays. It was
good to spend time with her when neither of us was rushed or
exhausted, and Pandara said it was a first-rate start to her birthday
That Monday I blew off MUX night again to work on my Dollship of Doom for Saturday's D&D game. I felt guilty about
it, but I did need to get it done by Saturday, and it's a lot more fun
and speedy with icespark's help. I felt some time pressure
since I wanted to journal, MUX, and work on the Dollship all at the
same time. Besides self-induced stress, however, it was a nice night.
That Tuesday I had a horrible day at work, so I skipped the Poly
Meetup and just had noodles and hid out with lildomino. She
helped me put my bed together (finally!) and looked into storage
options for all my crap. I got caught up with a little of the vast
list of things I'm behind on while LilDomino studied and
window-shopped online. It was a perfect night of productivity and
That Wednesday IceSpark and I had tickets to Repo!
The Genetic Opera. anjala, D!1, beldar,
the_dark_snack, defixione, and nissinirvani were there, as well as the director and one of the
stars. The movie was marvelously fun in a Sweeney
Todd sort of way, and full of Anthony Stewart Head
goodness. Afterwards there was an interesting Q&A with the writers
and the actor who played the Grave-Robber. I got
their autograph for hotarugirl, hugs from Anjala, D!1, and
Nissinirvani, and then we went back to IceSpark's to sleep.
That Thursday night Mishiell came over and we had a long talk about
our relationship. I've had a hard time adjusting to the rapid
development of her connection with eldari, but I didn't want
to bother her about it because I didn't want to stomp on her NRE. It
turns out that just talking about it with her made me feel a lot
better about everything. What was that about poly and communication,
communication, communication? >B)
Last Friday I went to Marsh's to work more on my Dollship of Doom. that_girl_lola made us dinner, and their kid ran around looking
cute. Marsh worked on his own constructible cardstock projects and
then helped me with part of the Dollship forecastle. When
That_girl_lola went to bed Marsh and I watched the first episode of
season 4.5 of BSG, which was just as uplifting as hell. When
it got late I stumbled over to LilDomino's and passed out to sleep.
Last Saturday I had to work, so I dropped off the Dollship at
IceSpark's so she could work on it and then went into the office.
Unfortunately I'd left the ship in the car all night and the glue
froze, meaning IceSpark had to redo a lot of what we'd done this week.
After work HotaruGirl come into town for the weekend to role-play
with me and to visit LilDomino, and the D&D game was a chaotic but fun
time, and I think an overall success.
