DOUMEKI IS SERIOUS OK WATANUKI. 

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN HIM RAISE HIS VOICE BEFORE

HE EVEN DID THE ANIME HAND WALL THING

THAT’S HOW SERIOUS HE IS

Fun story, someone tried the anime hand wall thing on me once. It worked for precisely two seconds before I ducked under it and kept going. 

FUN TIPS TO TRY AT HOME, WATANUKI. 

For a moment I thought he was sitting on a giant fortune cookie and I was incredibly excited. 

BUT YUUKO ICHIHARA IS HERE AND THAT’S EVEN BETTER SO I’M OKAY WITH IT. 

She’s not going to be able to do it, but more importantly, damn Yuuko what are you wearing that’s incredible.

ahahaa I said ‘today sure is a day’ before the day had even started and now here I am, almost 12 hours later, having attended to the emotional needs of several friends and gotten practically none of my own work done.

time to crack open a beer and make some cupcakes for a friend who needs cheering up tomorrow, I guess

We’re going through our first boxes from Operation: Mother Rescue. For those who missed it last year, that was when I returned to Louisiana to finally liberate my mother and move her up here to Portland. In the process, however, I took possession of a literal tiny mountain of crap that I’d left behind when I moved over ten years ago. Most of these boxes haven’t been properly gone through. Some haven’t even been opened in over a decade. It’s quite an adventure. And I’m sick of not being able to use my garage because of it all, so we’re finally (slowly, like a few boxes a week slowly) going to make a decision about every single item out there as to keep, sell, or junk.

So we’re doing that now. In the first box, I discovered a packaged and addressed cassette tape that I’d never sent. I hadn’t made it out to anyone I could recognize (it’s obviously an in-joke I’ve forgotten) and I didn’t recognize the address either. Figuring it wasn’t going to be sent NOW, I opened it. The tape is also frustratingly unlabeled. However there was a note tucked inside, making it clear that this tape was intended to go to Hubby-Then-Boyfriend.

The note is dated 11 July 1994. Hubby’s birthday, not coincidentally, I’m sure. The second line of the note reads, and this is an exact quote, “Hope you enjoy it and it gets there on time.”

WELL. ABOUT THAT.
