1. I bought a newish used car. 2001 Toyota Corolla SE, silver. Took most of the day, and I have to insure it tomorrow.

2. I sold Frank, Car of the Future™for more than $1. Suck it, elfdope.

3. I'm quitting KoL - some of y'all got stuff, and it's because you done helped me a bunch. I'm not done selling and distributing, but the clan should get most of the stuff, and I will appoint somebody to deal with meat. I will do this by giving it to them (That's ridiculous - it's not even funny).

4. I'm talkin' Southern because I'm readin' The Dark Tower. I actually told somebody I din't mean to bother him none, thank'ya. The English major within is cringing and laughing, like some kind of cringing, laughing thing.


5. masui has learned to get the hate on for lazy undergrads, and I love her for it. Well, for other things too, but this thing is new.

6. My paternal grandmother is likely to die in the next 48 hours, and I haven't decided how to feel about that. Mostly, I feel okay in the interior, but bad for feeling okay exterior to the inside feeling. She has some time to make her peace, and she likely will. In this way, I see her passing as a part of the natural order, and her life as having reached completion. I have no intention to dwell on the act of her death, but rather that she meets her end well.

All in all, I'm feeling uncomfortably light-headed.

EDIT: Time has been adjusted for reality, and comments enabled. Turns out I have nothing to add.
Current Mood: uncomfortably light-headed

So far, 7 is making up for 5 and 6 in some big ways.

And don't worry about the important thing - they're all important in their own way, and the big-big thing is pretty much out of my hands. I appreciate your concern, though - thanks :-)

I think I'll be okay. Just a little light-headed is all.

::hug:: Once again, phone is open. And you know I like it when you call. So does Josiah, even if all he does is yell comments from the other room. ::grin::

Feel better.

Why are you quitting KoL? Taking up too much time?

You're changing. I hope I recognize you the next time I see you. Please don't take that the wrong way.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on October 7th, 2004 09:54 pm (UTC)
WAY too much time, and no real challenge. When I realized I have real-world shopping and selling to do, the bartender-in-the-box-o-rama I was planning just seemed empty and hollow. Not something I can enjoy anymore, so I'm giving it up.

Change is usually good. Not taking it the wrong way.

I hear that. I'm gonna keep my main guy active until Jick impelements ascention - then I'll start up again. KoL just sucks too much time, even if it is fun.

I lost my maternal grandmother, my last living grandparent, in early July - not that you have any lack of people offering to lend you an ear should you need to talk, but for what it's worth, you can add my name to that list.

Also, congrats on the new car; Corollas are great. I was keeping an eye out for one when I was shopping for my car.

If all of our friends redirected their KoL energies into gettin Milla Jovovich to have a threesome with Abra and I, well lets just say within a week I would find myself in bed with Abra, Milla, and a hottie to be named later with a utility belt of sex toys.

Just say no.

Congrats on the car. We saved $200 by going with Allstate instead of State Farm.

Condolances on grandma. Katie's grandpa was sick for a while, and there weren't a lot of tears at the funeral - not because he wasn't loved, but because he wasn't hurting anymore and he was moving on, so to speak. More relief than grief.

tussle and a hug
tussle and a hug
what you get is
a tussle and a hug.

This Asahi's for YOU

I hope you make that trip.

Um, well, if you feel like dumping meat on j-random LJ-er, look for "Niuta" the Turtle Tamer. But, yeah, clan first.
