b/g - in the library

I'm sorry to come in with my bags of woe

But I've got 'em.

Ok, so, first?  Good things in my life, things that have gone on in the last 7 days:

  • Maija came over tonight and bought me yummy vegetarian thai food and we watched True Blood and had an enjoyable, sane (mostly, but will get to that) evening
  • I got to work with 3rd graders today to figure out how to learn more about local landmarks via the web and had a good time with it, even if it took a lot of energy (I worked with three kids, and it really is like herding cats)
  • I managed to get my laundry done on a monday night - yay for clean sheets
  • My advisor wrote this kick ass "you should give her $$ for expenses" letter in support of my recent conference journey
  • I went to Griffith Observatory with a friend on Sunday and we actually caught one of the planetarium shows (yay student ID price!) and it was awesome in a super duper geeky way
  • I took the dog to the dog park and met a Chinese Mastiff puppy that is going to look just like this when he grows up (and is bigger than Domino now)
  • I was actually interested in doing art and did a banner for [profile] eurydice72 (finally beginning to fulfill some of my [community profile] help_pakistan bidders/winners)
  • I started to think about how I'm going to decorate my place when the evil housemate is out
  • I got a pretty decent fridge for $200 delivered on the morning I wanted it.
Ok, so keep that in mind (trust me, I'm trying, really trying), because tonight I came home to find Asha had broken into my room through my window in order to circumvent the lock i'd put on the door

far too appropriate horoscope

(as usual)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Five white tigers at a Chinese wild animal park became way too tame for their own good. Maybe they'd hung around humans too long or their lifestyle was too cushy. Whatever the reason, one of their essential instincts atrophied. A zookeeper put live chickens into their habitats, hoping they would pounce and devour, but instead they retreated as if unnerved. Tigers scared of chickens?! Since then the zoo officials have been taking measures to boost the big cats' bravado. I bring this to your attention, Libra, because I'm worried you might be headed in the tigers' direction. Undomesticate thyself! Halloween costume suggestion: a big fierce creature.

Thank you everybody for the words of support.  I've delivered the dog into safe-keeping with the ex (Asha makes him look totally noncreepy by comparison) and am putting a new lock on my door tonight (since the cops told her last night she has to give me 24 hour written notice to get into my room), and am toughing this shit out.
