I need one of those interlock things attached to my computer because
.......it's for Halloween.*
How such things went out of fashion I'll never know. Yes I realize they are somewhat complicated to assemble and a bit suffocating and bodily movement is very limited while wearing it, BUT IT'S SO PURRTY.
I dropped my upright bass on my foot this week.
Owning that instrument is fraught with dangers. Just moving it from one room to another poses significant risks to my physical health.
One time I had a dream that I could fly around on it, like a witch's broom.
My Day of Oldering** fast approaches, and already Mumsy and Lil Sis are stressing me out by trying to make a fuss.
I hate fuss. Every year is exactly the same--I insist I want no fuss, no party, nothing extravagant whatsoever, maybe just dinner out somewhere quiet and inexpensive and that's it.
So far, TWO dinners out are planned (one at an absurdly expensive steak house), and Mummers has been calling and texting non-stop demanding I send her a wish list for presents.
I don't want to seem ungrateful. Quite the opposite. I am very grateful that I'm getting two nice dinners and that I have a mother who wants to get me lots of presents. But I hate that she's spending so much money. I feel guilty.
So instead I tried to come up with a few things that I actually need, like these super sweet boots:
(I need another pair of boots to wear to work.)
and a used laptop with Windows (I need a computer with Windows*** to do freelancing transcription work to make some extra $$).
Mumsy responded to this with, "FINE I'll just give you money then!"
Adventure to Weyerbacher should be [hopefully] happening this weekend. I am super excited.
*I shall use Halloween as an excuse to wear it out in public. I really just love period costumes and will probably keep buying more until the day I die.
**I stole that word from Tempest.
***I would never normally endorse the use of Microsoft Windows.
