O Happy Day!

The rather impromptu write-in was loads upon loads of fun! I had coffee and was very hyper by the end. There was lots of giggling, and inside-joking. There were constant calls for Customer Service to come to Art, which we learned was in fact code for "Somebody with a key, unlock the damn bathroom!" the art section being right by the bathrooms.

I went and got some more random groceries from TJ's, since I was in the neighborhood.

I'm thinking if we play sardines in Vash, I could actually get the one chick (whose name I'm still having trouble remembering (ah, myrrhianna)) home, carpool-wise. hcolleen would have to take the back seat in the middle, though.

I got home and started in on the random weekly cleanup time. It just started out as getting the IKEA mattress on the bed. It evolved into doing things like hanging up the blue canopy to partition off the bed, and then since that got stars and fairy lights all over the kitchen floor, I had to string the fairy lights in and around the folding screen that I've been trying to use to sort of partition off my bed from the sliding doors a little bit. That worked out so brilliantly that I had to get the bungee cords and secure the folding screen so that it worked as it was supposed to and not be in danger of falling over if randomly kicked or smacked or whacked a pillow into (all hazards of things in and near any place I'm sleeping). I'm particularly proud of the job I did on that, because I have it secured at two points, and then the shape of the screen and gravity makes it secured in all three dimensions. Not only that, but it can either be in zigzag configuration (for maximum privacy for my bed) or it can be in horseshoe configuration (for maximum hiding-of-the-stuff-that-I-stowed-back-behind). The stars went where they always belong: in the canopy to shine down happily at night.

I have whole lots of random journals from my last stint in the call center. I should really get them typed up in LJ for posterity's sake (lots of stuff from then that didn't make it in my other paper journals or in LJ, when I had gotten it after May '01) and then get them filed somewhere safe and out of the way, since it's not something I need for daily use. I really have no idea why anyone would need the paper copy after it's transcribed, unless there are nifty drawings or something on it. There are two magical almanacs from assorted years; those probably have things that could very well go in my Google calendar for posterity. I like having what-I-was-doing-when written down places, yes I do.

I'm behind on my word count, but not terribly, and I do need to LJ and get all the random out of my head more than I do to make up 800-odd words. (Er. Though when I wrote that, I wound up getting very inspired, and now I'm nearly on track for Sunday, though it's Monday now, and I still have about two thousand words to get in there for Monday.)

But today was a very good day.

The thing with the LJ-assisted research and the being rather cryptic about the topic was excellent fun. Hooray research! Hooray being ... mmm .... hehehehe. Very much of the insane; very much of the fun.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
