Whine Wednesday

I am a complete baby when it comes to sleep, I'll be totally up front. I usually get 7 hours, 7 solid hours every single night. 8 is better. 6 is challenging. I didn't go to bed until well after 1am and then was up at 6 and I want to diiiiiieeeee. Not really, I want to sleeeeeeeep.

Last night as the last child came back (they always come back) from running around the neighborhood, I pressed the buttons to close the garage doors and the one behind my car gave a godawful thump/crumpleSKREEEEEEEE before I could push the release. It jumped the track and warped and twisted into a big mess and is now blocking my car from exiting. It was one of those standing there with my hands in my hair and mouth open moments. FUN. So hopefully I can get a repairman out because otherwise I AM TRAPPED. O_O

It was a hit or miss episode on GLEE last night (Klaine moments! Cooter/Sue moments?) but the recap is up, and the cocktail is REALLY TASTY (I broke my "no alcohol during the week" rule when I started back on P90X to make sure, so come on. Make my slowed metabolism worth it.)

I have P90X and TurboFire HIIT to do today, because I'm insane. Also, I miss being in fighting shape. Because I wanna fight. Put me in, Coach! I am now insane from lack of sleep, I hope you're happy, Science. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

WAIT. I wanted to put a rec out there before I go back to sleep. Why don't you have flaming_muse on your flist yet, if you love fabulous fanfiction? It's really your loss. She wrote a fic that was posted yesterday, and it deals with Kurt explaining why he's never serenaded Blaine (have you noticed? She and I have.) As always, it's utterly wonderful and filled with lovely emotions and visuals. "I Want To Tell You," PG-13.

ALSO. Dear NaNoWriMo. I totes should have signed up this year. Without counting LJ, FB, Twitter, comments, emails (and there were a lot) OR MY BOOK THAT I'VE BEEN EDITING, (because I didn't have a before/after word count to keep me honest, so I'll just dismiss it right out) I have a monthly November writing total of, wait for it, 122,122. So. I'm kinda proud of me. Even if I have nothing to show for it.

Okay. NOW I am going to wander around with my clothes on inside out looking for coffee.

over the past two months or so, my soon to be slowly and unmercifully slaughtered upstairs neighbor has been thundering around rhino stompily during the night such that I get about 90 minutes of sleep, interrupted by 30 minutes of angry stompy pacing, and another 90 of sleep, etc. And it's like... my temper is so insane and scary (even to me) and unreasonable that I CAN'T EVEN TALK TO THEM ABOUT IT because I am legit afraid that I might snap and kill them immediately before I can even explain that if I don't sleep it is dangerous for EVERYONE EVERYWHERE.

sigh.

I'm just saying, epazote is highly poisonous if taken in large doses. As in, more than a handful. I'M JUST SAYING. I WILL BE IN NYC IN JANUARY. If she is still doing this, I can rain thunder from down under on her face meat until her feet stop working.

IF YOU DO RUSSELL EDGINGTON HER PROMISE ME YOU'LL TURN TO TIFFANY FOR THE WEATHER.

If you can't say "I will play with your blood while you scream for help" in NYC, where can you say it???

Oooh, and Shreveport. And portions of Mississippi, but only in wolf puppy bars.

Ha, this is the funniest, yet most terrifying, thread I'll likely read today.

PS You DO have something to show for all that writing - our undying gratitude. But don't try to buy stocks with it.

HAHAHAHA. Liz is totally going to be my alibi when I finally snap. LIS, I WILL BE YOURS, IF YOU NEED ONE.

...not even in Greece? I heard they're desperate. [/lame financial crisis joke because I'm too tired to be clever.]

AUGH MY GARAGE DOOR REPAIR COMPANY IS NO LONGER IN BUSINESS, MOTHER F-

Just the town crier, ma'am. ;D (apparently I can't spell today)

I feel LAZY because I just bailed out of my workout. My excuse is that the garage door repairman should be here any minute and I pulled something in my shoulder. Ow.

"I Want to Tell You" was just lovely. I get petulant sometimes that my bf doesn't sing to me as much as I'd like (he has a gorgeous voice), so I've decided it's just for all the reasons that Kurt said :)

Haven't seen the episode yet, so glad to hear it will have Klaine moments!

I love love LOVE FM's fics, it's awesome that she lets me see them before everyone else. <3

There were some sweet Klaine moments, too few, but then I'm always going to think that.

I was thinking last night, I can't remember whether or not you created a drinking game for Glee to go along with all your cocktails? If you did, I can't find it.. and if you didn't, you should cause it would be awesome.

There's a drinking game - there's a bingo card under every cocktail recipe and [DRINK] when we hit a bingo square. Every single week. :D

ANNE IT WAS TERRIFYING. Apparently there wasn't a support bar along the top, so when it was opened, it bent at the top, then when I went to close it, SCRUNCH/WOBBLE/SMASH. (Check the top of your door. Also, I didn't know I'm supposed to be lubricating the spring and the wheels every 3 months? Um....7 years and nothing. WHOOPS.)

But I have a beautiful new garage door that is as silent as the grave! Now to wait for The Mr. to get back from his trip, approve it, so I can get the second door to match. ;)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
