Ah, Livejournal, you look strange!

Sleep dep. x 2 today but the day went well and I am grateful. The service was a hit, I didn't faint during my coming-out-as-everything sermon (I don't usually get too nervous but this was the most open I've ever been with the congregation), I made the minister cry, a pretty-long-standing member of the congregation came out as gay, The Gays took me out for Indian food (and I was told that when I'm "old like them" I have to take a baby dyke of my own under my wing: well duh, I'll have a whole destruction of baby dykes ['destruction' being the collective noun for wild cats]), I got to go home with one of my Adopted Lesbian Aunts to play with her three "babies" (two labs and a Jack Russell), and I managed to inspire myself to do the re-arranging of my room despite my exhaustion. I am on my way to trying out my brother's old desktop computer.

I had no idea that what it would take to move a desk and a bookshelf on my own was just some jumps to the left and then some steps to the right, my hands on my hips and then my knees in tight; but it was the pelvic thrust that really drove me insane ended my pain. (Let's do the Warp Clean again ['and again, and again, f--k your mother'--for those who've been to a live shadow-casting].)

Truly, I hip-thrust my furniture across my room. I get very set on accomplishing these things despite the difficulty of doing them alone (and because doing it alone makes me feel independent, capable, and not-helpless--no matter how stubborn). I was a sweaty mess when I finished, but I prevailed and reign victorious over my living space.

Tomorrow/today is a kidsitting day for around five hours, so I'm off to read some Memories of my childhood; further years at Mårbacka (it arrived!), relax, and get some good sleep. My left eye seems to be twitching; I think that means it's time to go.

A destruction of wild cats? Great. I love the English collective nouns - one of the things I love best in English. Such a variety.

I've a detective called 'an unkindness of raven' - that got me looking into the subject.

Thanks for the new addition. It seems in this case the word is singularly appropriate.

Oh, yes, English collective nouns are a laugh and a half; I've loved them since junior high. "Destruction" is one of my favourites.

Not a problem! Glad you enjoyed this one. (:

I do love the idea of going about with a destruction of dykes... A destruction of dykes on bikes. Yup, sounds like a parade-starter to me.

Jack Russel's are such cute dogs ;)

I am enjoying it immensely! I'm taking my sweet time with it. I picked up the book and fell in love--then further when I saw it was printed in 1934, more when I felt the thickness of the pages, and even more when I gave the book a sniff. (Yes, I'm that sort of reader haha.)

I've slept with it once when my teddy wasn't around and it's been witnessed an engagement (of a couple) and more! I'm sad I have to return it to the library again!

What a fitting Kiwi-icon ♥
You more than earned yourself a little imaginary holiday in Sweden !!

Thank you! My friend drew that of me as an anthropomorphic margay (I love that species of cat). I love it!

I've been enjoying every imaginary holiday in Sweden I've taken! The other day it was so hot that I got down on the bathroom floor (took the dog's advice) and read on the tiles; it felt wonderful for my body and my brain.

I'm glad your service well! Indian food with the gays and then playing with dogs? Sounds heavenly.

I laughed at your cleaning description. You accomplished a lot more room cleaning than I did.

Thank you! Me too. I'm glad I didn't show how badly I was a bundle of nerves. :P

I have much more cleaning to do, but at least the Big Rearranging is done. That can be a pain in the arse.
