Go read this. It'll only take a second, I promise, and it's totally worth your time.

I'm a Pagan, but to quote [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin, I am firmly of the opinion that Jesus Christ, whatever else he may or may not have been, was a nice Jewish boy who wandered the world telling people to be excellent to each other.

I know that I don't post nearly as often as I used to, nor do I comment on some people's posts, but I do at least skim what you write (and I usually click on cuts, too!). Some of you are going through rough times, and Gods, I wish I could be there in some way or fashion, but distance makes that impossible. Please know that I love all of you, and you're in my thoughts and prayers all the time. You're important to me, and I'm glad I met you, even if I'm just words on a screen to you!

Dear Flist,

Your support of me and my family after my uncle's death has been... overwhelming. Thank you all so much; I did not have internet access this weekend, so I haven't been able to respond individually. Suffice it to say that your warm messages have brought tears (of joy!) to my eyes. I love you all so much.

In other news, since I did not have internet access, I have not checked my friends list since Thursday. If I've missed anything important, please link me or tell me in comments.

I'm hanging at [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin's again today. We've got D&D tonight, and I cannot wait to play my Starlock. I love her so much; she's terribly bitchy and basically Jenette in mood. ...err, okay, she's a hell of a lot less slutty, but that isn't hard.

Note to self: Make power cards before the game.

We're also going to be going out for lunch as soon as the Chinese place he wants to take me to opens up. He also mentioned Pamela's for breakfast, but I think that might be the weekend after next instead.

Last night I played Monty Python Fluxx at [livejournal.com profile] fiannaharpar and [livejournal.com profile] lrstrobel's. Oh man, that game is pretty amazing. I really liked it. We also played Ticket to Ride: Europe. It was really enjoyable! I also don't suck as hard as I thought when it comes to strategy games.

Speaking of Monty Python Fluxx... [livejournal.com profile] lstrobel decided that she wanted to play with us. Keep in mind that she is only five--a very precocious five, but five, nonetheless. Her dad was helping her, and she didn't do too badly at all, but since Murphy's Law is always in effect (and I don't mean the cat that's sitting next to me!), she drew the Nude Organist card. As soon as she got up to do... something... her dad switched the card out for a different Keeper. It was amusing.

And, of course, she has designs on [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin. She says she will marry him. (Forget the fact that she's FIRMLY in his creepy zone...) Watching those two together warms my heart. [livejournal.com profile] lstrobel is so damn cute, and snarks on a 4th grade level. I really do think that I'm blessed for knowing her--she brings so much joy into everyone's life. What a ray of sunshine.

Of course, she's also really good at breaking my brain without realizing it. What she says is meant totally innocently, but oh my God the innuendo! The jokes were flying last night about how, you know, since [livejournal.com profile] lstrobel is going to marry [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin, it's a hell of a good thing that he and I are poly. (Okay, I'm just exploring the lifestyle, but that's a technicality. :P)

i got my hair cut yesterday. It's very cute, and as soon as I can steal someone's camera/get a decent pic with the camera phone, I will post pictures. I also got my ID card renewed! Can get booze without a hassle! (Because, you know, I'm such a drinker that I let my ID lapse for a year and a half). The picture turned out really cute.

KoLumbus is next week! The Buckeyes have an away game! Come hell or high water, I will meet [livejournal.com profile] typozilla and [livejournal.com profile] trioxinaddict. We will go drinking, and I will return to the hotel utterly smashed. (Well, as smashed as I get, which isn't much. No blackouts for this little black duck!)

I have slowly been adding everyone I've met over the past week. I'll probably freak out and start thinking that they're only tolerating me because I'm dating [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin--the joys of low self-esteem yay!--but for now, I will try really hard to keep from thinking that.

Holy shit it got cold. Two days ago I could walk outside barefoot, and now I need a jacket and gloves. I should grab my fingerless gloves and toss them in my purse, considering how cold my hands get. I'll be okay until I remember to do so, I'm sure.

I'm trying to be interesting and funny when I write these blogs, but I'm also firmly aware that I have New Boyfriend Syndrome and that not everyone is as amused by it as I am. I swear it will eventually get toned down someday probably!

[livejournal.com profile] chapelski, I'm sorry I bailed yesterday. I had to get the hell out of the house for the rest of the weekend because Dad was in a Mood. I owe you tarot lessons as soon as I get back from KoLumbus--it looks like the 20th is open. That's a Thursday. Is anyone else interested in meeting up and playing with tarot decks? I know a bit, but more experience is always appreciated. (Granted, that's saying that we can find somewhere that's accessible and that [livejournal.com profile] chapelski wants to! I don't want to make firm plans without her input.) I was going to suggest we just go to Evergreen this week, but lol, I'll be in Columbus by then. I'm leaving at noon Thursday, and coming back mid-afternoon Sunday. ...Shit, I hope that Mom managed to make a dent in the laundry. >>

My hands are far too cold for me to ramble anymore. <3

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
