I am celebrating Friday the 13th by listening to Ego Likeness's new disc Water to the Dead while working on the gorram Service Directory. At the risk of sounding like part of a vast Internet marketing conspiracy, this album r0x0rz. God, it's great to have friends who are so staggeringly talented that you never have to fake any enthusiasm for their work. The show this last weekend was a peak experience (in case you haven't seen 'em, here are some pics).

And they included Eric in the acknowledgements! I am a proud wife.

This week has been a trying one. Mostly strange internal turmoil that I have trouble articulating without sounding… melodramatic. Which would not be an accurate expression about how I feel today. I feel pretty contented today. Allie and Chris and the Little Bird are well, and are even traveling this weekend. We get to spend time with the Arkhams tonight, playing with a sewing project. Tomorrow is the thing at EJ's (dearest talisman girl). Sunday is possibly brunch with Miranda, followed by getting to see Jen W, whom I really miss a lot. Conscious of how lucky I am to have so many people to miss.

House is apparently haunted. How 'bout that. We've been advised by many to "ward the basement". I really should post some pictures of it. Imagine this room of rotting wooden walls, half full to the ceiling with dank clay soil. There is (I shit you not) a single, spindly rose trying to grow in there, despite the almost total dark when we don't have the light on for some reason. It's all white and anemic looking. I keep expecting it to die, but so far, it's still kicking. Creepy. Cool.

Trying to re-learn this LJ thing. Is it to appallingly cliché for me to end with "wish the work day were over, and the weekend would start?"

the rose
Get a grow light for the rose, I bet if the rose does better, "things" will be happier.

Re: the rose
I agree wholeheartedly (and if the two of us agree on something, it MUST be a good idea!)

I really want to see the pictures of this place.

If I recall, DJ is fairly good at warding against that sort of thing. He could do some backup next time we come down. Me, I'm totally insensitive to that sort of thing. We stayed in the Most Haunted House in New Zealand when we were there in March. DJ could only sleep with the lights on. The closet kept coming open, things kept coming out of it, and I shrugged, said, "Look, I won't bother you if you won't bother me," to whatever was out there, and slept. Possibly the ONLY time I've been able to sleep somewhere he hasn't.

And no, that is not an appallingly cliched way to end your post.

You are welcome to email me privately re: inner turmoil.

What a lovely idea, Kitty! This made me smile.
