As I was getting dressed this morning, I realized I was living the dream of my middle/high school self. My hair is dyed and my glasses are cute. I'm wearing a beanie that proclaims "Glitter is the New Black". I have a black t-shirt, blue jeans, and combat boots. I have my boyfriend's husband's flannel shirt. And I have red lipstick. And can wrap confidence around my walk to make it all work.

Also, yeah, I still believe that the 90s were only 10 years or so ago. Next year is my 20th HS reunion. Not sure how I feel about that. 

I have enough money that I can buy a new lipstick, book, or music when I want. I have a handheld Nintendo gaming system.

So, you know, it's not all terrible. True, we're living in a country where the people who recently campaigned on a "No more corruption" platform have now started to declaw the ethics oversight ability of their governing body. But I can call my congressman and my senators and I can donate money and do what I can.

Also, I have a device that fits in my pocket and contains ALL THE BOOKS. Srsly. At one point I doubted the Kindle. Now I adore it. Living in the future.

Downwood's up at the hospital. He was having chest pains and shortness of breath and the EMTs took him there last night. I got the kids back to bed and then tried to stay awake to find out what was going on with him. So I tried to make my daily NaNoWriMo word count. The worry and upset crept into what I was writing. Eventually I realized that I wasn't going to be able to stay on target, so I gave up and just wrote what I was feeling. I wrote most of it with my eyes closed (see above about trying to stay awake).

I read over the last little bit of it just now. I'm....not entirely sure what I was thinking.

I present to you: Unedited Ramblings of a Tired, Worried Sabine:

And no, I am really, really tired. Faling asleep at the eyboard again tired. There needs to be an argument where bakerhas to admit that the machine isn't totally rea ready to discussion and leanring. Also, he investion needs to be strong and slow. Sometimes'Now, if someone else would tae a risk, tat'd be neat. Hus Hedird.

And now bed, I think. Not sue why I was thinking about my poor, defunct html code

Yeah, bed. Otherwide I need to start talking about some of the even wirder things going on in my  min. Also, Iceland is the center of dealing with things from the imort file. I had to write an autohokey scrip to be able to pull the dat from the view into the master. Then the Master decides what it needs/wants to send with a…not master, View-model. Then the view modelt post back to the database. And the circule of life, liberty, and the perusuirt of broken doorknos, I need to wonder if the dorornobs there have funny or lewed shaps. Or if they're just pling door knockers.

I have much to say about Costume Con, but first I must say this:


My application to UW to be a "Special Student" in their certification program WAS ACCEPTED. I'm a college student again! I'll be taking CS classes over the next few years, but I'M DOING THIS THING THAT MILDLY TERRIFIES ME OMG!

The other night....

Downwood: What are you doing?
Me: Eating my Reese's egg.
Downwood: Seriously?
Me: We've been together for 12 years and you've never noticed that I always eat the edges off of peanut butter cups first and save the middle for the end?
Downwood: Apparently not....why?!
Me: The chocolate is sub-par and I really like the peanut butter. So I get rid of the highest concentrations of chocolate first and then have a bite or two that are really, really good.
Downwood: Huh. Okay then.
