I wrote 11 pages of SAM fanfic yesterday.  Whenever this obsession lifts, I will be grateful.  I'm also watching "The Practice" and "Boston Legal", the later on DVR so I'll pace myself.  However:
1) Our TV broke - getting a new one cost almost $400.
2) I discovered Fletcher has been peeing on a corner of a large rug.  We were going to get rid of it anyway, but JEEZ.  My dog walker came over, helped me roll it up and put in the room by the freight elevator.  The building guys are going to be so disgusted.
3) Jeff was informed at 1 pm Friday that his office would be moving to 64th Street over the weekend
4) Cleo is going to have to boarded (at $63 a night!) at the vet's because of her continuing medical problems. They're not dire, but we'll be in Dallas Wed-Sun and we can't leave her that long. The bill for the last visit was so large we almost maxed out our low-balance credit card.
5) We got a notice from New York State tax folks that we're getting audit. Apparently this is something they do at random, and we've been picked this year.
6) Speaking of my building guys, I asked one of them if I could leave my TV by the freight elevator. Then I cracked, "I'd like to toss it out the window and watch it smash on the sidewalk".  Big mistake: there were a lot of people in the lobby.  As I walked toward the elevator, I heard a guy say, "What was that?"
7) We're both being bombarded with "restricted" calls on our cells.  According to our service provider, we'd have to pay an additional $10/mo to have them blocked.   Grrrr
8) I want to watch "Okja" on Netflix.  It comes out today.  We don't have Netflix and can't afford it.
9) Time for another round of cancer doctors' appointments.  Bleagh.

My brother and his family are touring France.  My sister and her family are touring Italy.  My stomach is churning with envy. We can’t afford it. And we’re going to Dallas in JULY for a goddamned convention.  Shit shit shit.

To make matters worse, we have a guy who's going to the convention staying with us for the weekend for a mini-convention on Sunday, and I just blew up in front of him.  Major apologies and groveling will be called for.

I'm playing some writing music, and the Massive Attack instrumental of "Teardrop" came up.  Now I feel so sad, missing "House", the discussions, the community.  It was such a difficult time in my life, and the House folks got me through it.

I have been terrible at updating!  Also, how do I add icons? I need "Pink Hitler Approves" and a bunch of others!
Warning: icky medical stuff )

My sister Tessa was here for a few days. She and her kids are traveling to Italy to establish a temporary residence so they can have dual Italian/American citizenship. I would do it but it costs thousands of dollars.  Yesterday we went to the Whitney Museum, a huge museum that relocated downtown.  Beautiful building, lots of excellent exhibits and some real crap.  On a wall where a black artist had done paintings of his service in World War 2, hung a poem by W.H. Auden, September 1, 1939.  It was written the day World War 2 broke out.  It's gorgeous.  taiga_13 will appreciate it.  Here it's hella long..

by W.H. Auden
I sit in one of the dives
On Fifty-second Street
Uncertain and afraid
As the clever hopes expire
Of a low dishonest decade:
Waves of anger and fear
Circulate over the bright
And darkened lands of the earth,
Obsessing our private lives;
The unmentionable odour of death
Offends the September night.

There's no fandom for "Swiss Army Man," but literally hundreds of people are reading my stories here.  Even if it's the same people, it's a fuck of a lot. If it weren't for the Stats, I would think nobody was reading the damn things.

Within half an hour of posting, 14 people read "The Playground"!

You folks have no idea what you're missing if you're not a member of!

There are a huge amount of every kind of story you can kind imagine, and some you can't!   A great deal is House/Wilson, too!

AND, since "The Princess And The Peeved" made their list, they interviewed ME this week!

Link to the wittiness

Not only that, the previous interview is with [ profile] blackmare !!! Having just read [ profile] black_cigarette's amazing "Bad Company" and "Aftershocks," I was delighted to read it!

Get over there and have fun!

I am SWAMPED SWAMPED SWAMPED due to the upcoming release of my novel, THE ABORTIONIST'S DAUGHTER!  A number of nice reviews have come out, but the book itself isn't put together completely, my pre-order on my website doesn't work, I haven't even BEGUN the work for Ingram...

Kill me now.

On the other hand, I loved Supernatural's 200th episode and last week's Walking Dead.  Eugene is my spirit animal.

For the random meme, this is from my performing days (which I hope to resume again soon).  It's the basis of a publicity photo.

Random Me(s)! )
