Daily Trivia (Wednesday)

I was planning to head out to IKEA yesterday before the LJ Folks dinner that jai_dit scheduled. I got off to a late start in general, and then as I was getting ready to head out the door, maintenance showed up to replace the outlet box that was broken. So I stayed around while the fellow did that.

I zipped through IKEA, picking up a floor lamp, a laptop desk, a table (to be used as a desk), and a little side table, as well as a floor lamp. I was afraid I was going to get stuck in traffic on the way home, but, happily, I did not. My aunt called proposing a dog walk (couldn't make it), and I somehow got mustard on my ear.

I had just cleaned up and was getting dressed when the power went out. Woe! I finished getting dressed in the semi-dark. I wore my hair mostly down, with a twist in the top secured with a really pretty enameled comb. (Guys who were there: this may be one of your few chances to have seen my hair down. It tangles. I don't do it often.) I decided against kitten heels on the grounds of San Francisco sidewalks, and wore my navy suede flats instead.

Dinner was fun, and deserves its own post when I am not screaming off to dinner with my aunt then SPN night.
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?
