Watched some cochlear implant videos. B seems to be more or less planning to proceed with it. I am hopeful it will improve things. It's going to be a long process.
Watched Dave w/ Oc and B. It is kind of funny to watch movies age. Which parts seem to age and which don't.
I heard all sorts of weird sounds from outside -- "scraack" sounds and "guinea pig whooping" sounds. I went out to look with a flashlight and saw two raccoons in the oak tree next door. One of them went into a hole in the oak tree and the other one stood there watching me with eyes that glowed green from my flashlight.
Seem to have mostly worked my way out of my foul mood. Still looking at my to do list and going AAAUGH.
I got a new haircut. It's too short in back. I want some buzzed neck showing but not this much.
All the time I was with N today I was thinking "I have to quit some of my net stuff." Drop my mailing lists, drop all the fat acceptance stuff for the moment. Drop anything that's making more than a minimal effort toward helping a person I don't know. That sounds kind of harsh, but those are less important in my life than my sweeties/friends/family, and something has to go. I need more time to read *good* stuff and time to do creative stuff.
(Anyone who has read this journal more than a couple of times is going 'yeah, I've heard it all before'.)
Exhausted most of the morning/afternoon. Late afternoon, went to Ruth Anne's party and I felt welcomed and (*gasp*) almost extroverted.
At the party, a certain person I have a bit of a crush on was welcoming and snuggly to me. *crushcrush*
OH and I picked up our friend S, who was visiting from south of here, and took her to the White Lotus, a Vietnamese Japanese restaurant in San Jose. My favorite dish there is the stuffed tofu. After that we went back to the party for a bit. Other newsgroup folks there: Brian, rosefox, Angi.
S was here until mid-afternoon. We did Very Little -- hung around and talked about various things, watched Wallace & Gromit's The Wrong Trousers.
Went to library and got more books on tape.
