Housewife's Lament

Productive day!

...For a weekend, that is. I have been more or less on the computer all day, but I have been making little lists to myself, of things to do. The results are productivity. I like this kind of productivity. My desk is relatively clean again. I am adhd-type enough that I almost have to keep a to-do list, and I have to put everything on there. And then when I'm bored and have to find something to do, I can pick something from the list, because odds are I'm going to want to do something. And I put down the dependencies, too, because I can't very well donate my old glasses if I don't get new glasses first, and I can't very well do stuff with the computer if I don't plug in the mouse. Et cetera.

I have done laundry. I have put some of it away. I have thrown out underwear with blatant holes, and I have new underwear on my list of things to buy. I have created room on my desk. I've even watched some animation, because I promised. Nigel is the best-animated, and unfortunately, the best-written 'ship of the series is William/Tamara. :(

Ahh, friendship.

An extract from an email exchange:

Me: I'll bring it tomorrow (er, today?) assuming you have time and also assuming Vash is behaving himself.
Darkside: Well, at 11:38 PM on friday, it would have been tomorrow, but since I'm replying at 11:07 AM on Saturday, I guess now it's today :P
Me: Unfortunately, a sending or delivery time of 11:38pm is a vicious lie by some computer, a lie intended to give you a false impression of my actual bedtime, which was in fact at least an hour later.

perfect orange glow

Got email back from Darkside this morning and accordingly dropped by in the early afternoon. The weather was perfect on the drive over. We watched quite a bit of Moonchild, but as Darkside has a heterosexual male's invulnerability to Gackt, that didn't work so well. So we wound up watching some Mythbusters, the Kenshin movie that shows how he got those scars, and rather a lot of bizarre AMVs on YouTube.

It's getting harder and harder to bid him farewell and head home for sleep, even when I know I'm tired and need it. Hanging out next week is almost a given.
