Malaise?

I woke up this morning feeling slightly down. To avoid going to work late, I set my alarm clock for much earlier in case I hit the snooze button several times. It just allowed me to hit the button even more. Went to work late anyway. *sigh*.

My mother sent me pagers about an elderly man in Florida who has a case of anthrax. She is now being paranoid about terrorists hitting Miami with biological warfare. I don't know what's worse: the possibility that she's paranoid or the possibility that she's right. Speaking of which, thanks to Auror, I'm contemplating whether to suprise my family with a visit home. I haven't been home since last Christmas. And if I don't do anything about it, I won't see some of them until next Christmas.

Then there is the attempt to finish game sometime this week for san-checking. Maybe I can get away with sending data files piece by piece to my zampolit this weekend. Something tells me that I shouldn't have gone to the Ig Nobels last night. The show itself was great (much better than last year with the simultaneous debates). There was even a wedding in 60 seconds or less. I like geek weddings. Wish I had more company though. The person who I was seeing this with was.....it gave me the feeling that I could have disappeared and she wouldn't care less. She kept talking about her circle of friends who I don't know (especially those who look like Marcus). Honestly, I wouldn't have been surprised if she ducked out in the middle of the show for a better view. She didn't even thank me for getting the tickets. That was the worse part. It amazing how powerful two words can be. *more sigh* Other than that, she was fun to be with.

We'll see what happens at tonight's mob. It's Questioner's birthday, and given the invite list, there will be women on opposite ends of the romance spectrum. This means that there will be people I love, people I like, and people I will be angry with in the same mob. Fortunately, there is only one person that I am currently very angry with. I will behave myself. I'm a grown-up. It should be fun.

It has been a while since my last entry due to recent events. I should start off on Friday when I came home during my lunch break to find out that my grandmother had a stroke. You don't realize how much you would miss someone until the possibility finally arrives. We had a falling out after a while due to distance, but all that disappeared when I called her from her hospital room. I was amazed to talk to her considering the fact that she had a stroke. I had Thrawn's SO talk to me about a worse case, but I'm glad that is not the case. I just found out today that she was released from the hospital to the relief of my entire family, including my father who is older than her (long story).
Fortunately, auror convinced me to go to Dralion with a bunch of my friends. Thrawn was fortunate enough to have a spare ticket, though it was for a solo seat. This was fine considering that I found out my ex-SO, Ween, was also joining us. More on that later. The performance was awe inspiring. The baffoons were funny. I liked the music, the acrobatics, and the overall flow. They gave me new ideas for my next Legends character which will be a Tor Aquillon. I even enjoyed one of the perks of attending a Canadian-based show: the purchase of Chardonnay at the concessions stand. For the record: white wine goes great with popcorn. Much to the dismay of auror, of all the souvenirs I could have purchased at the show, I invested $3 on a clown's nose. I needed the laugh considering what happened with my grandmother. This carried on to dinner where I sat between two of the quietest people in the table: Ween and Wicka, Thrawn's SO. Ween and I haven't spoken to each other since a wedding over two months ago, and now I'm seeing her during zebediah's move, Dralion, dinner, and (later) a housewarming party for three days straight. Talk about feelings of awkwardness. To this day, I still don't know whether to hate her or thank her for what she did. It was her break-up that allowed me to reject monogamy, be introduced to polyamory, and fall for auror. I am no longer the hopeless romantic, for I know that nothing is forever and I know true pain. Happily ever after doesn't exist. We pretty much had little to say to each other even though we were right next to each other.

Anyway...
Saturday was much better. After a semi-successful Shadowrun (another long story involving cybertrolls and elves), I went to a housewarming party hosted by rigel, bester, truthspeaker among others. It was a great party. Anime, gigaseconds of UNIX, and game oh my. Also, there were so many fine, foxy ladies to talk to. Bester may have convinced me to become a Mac user. And the thought of rigel with nearly all of her past and current SOs was interesting. I partied until late. It was all good. It is because of this that justifies my Livejournal mood. Just wished I did more on Sunday than sleep 60% of the day and saw "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" at LSC.
