... and there's still so much to do!

Yesterday my mother and I went to Ikea and it wasn't as bad as I initially thought it would be. As some of you know, my mother and I tend to, uh, butt heads at times, but this was smooth sailing and we while we didn't whole heartedly agree on everything, we got what I wanted, seeing as it's my furniture.

The place is big and I'll most likely get a flatmate once I've settled in and made myself at home. But I do need some alone time. I'm just glad to finally get out of here after two years of living back at home.

It took a long time to get here and I probably should have gotten off my tuches and moved long ago, but inertia and uncertainty and anxiety stop me from doing many things when it comes to improving my quality of life.

Not to mention my laziness. I'm so very lazy, it's not even funny.

I'll be honest, I'm glad I'll be in my own place before I'm 30. I know it's an artificial milestone, but for fuck's sake, I'm going to be 30 in 2015 and it's not that far away; time is flying.

Meanwhile I need to start properly planning for my vacation, get the Internet hooked up in the flat so I don't have to deal with that with the whole move, get the bills organised and gah...

All the grown up stuff I've put on hold for two years.

At this point I just need my Hawaii Five-0 holiday.

I'm sitting at my favorite musical perch of all time – a small, concrete abuttment at Stubb's in Austin, Texas, watching G-Love, Special Sauce, and the racial divide of the country play out in front of me. I should have known from my arrival: out of work and in search of free parking, a homeless man helped me parallel park a few blocks up. “Thank you,” I told him, shaking his hand through the passenger side window.

“Thank you for not spitting on me and calling me a nigger.”

I blinked. “Why the hell would I do that?”

“Plenty of folks take it upon themselves. Probably because I'm homeless.”

“Well, fuck that.” We live in an ATM world, so I handed him a twenty. “Thanks again, and please: go do something that makes you feel good,” I tell him, echoing the words of the friend who'd bought me the ticket to the G-Love show: please, go do something that you think is fun.

And yes, the G-Love show is definitely fun... )

1. I went in to work an hour early this morning so I could try and get a headstart on redoing the drinks case, which I had to get done by today. Not only is it harder to work when the store is open and there's customers, but there are three big deliveries on Fridays which take up a huge chunk of my morning. I still ended up needing to stay half an hour overtime this afternoon to get the job done, but I think going in early did help.

2. I'm closing tomorrow, so I get to sleep in! And also go to the farmers' market, which I usually can't go to because I'm at work.

3. We walked up to the store tonight and they had a sale on cereal where if you buy four boxes, not only are they $2.50 each but you get a free gallon of milk, too. O_o We've been eating a lot of cereal lately and while the kinds included in the sale were pretty limited, there were some we liked, so we got free milk! (Which is like a $5 value.)

I'm having a devil of a time concentrating long enough to work on anything creative, which is annoying as hell. Which I mention because I've opened this "post an entry" page several times today meaning to write something, but given up in frustration after two and a half sentences on a few different topics. (My fandom-as-projective-test post with slash archetypes; an urban fantasy thing-I'd-like-to-see-in-fiction where a couple of grizzled American loner demon hunters go to Italy and are taken out drinking with the Vatican's standing committe on exorcism, who give them tips and try to interest them in celibacy; something-else-I-forget.)

I've ascribed this lack of achievement to my own poor work habits and only after I write this I'm like, "Oh hey, that sounds like a really bad ADHD episode."

Eeexcept I've been taking my meds regularily and my caffeine intake hasn't changed and ?????????

I AM SO FRUSTRATED. And creatively discouraged. I want to be able to write things! I do! But sitting still for very long at all is torture. My hands always twitch to be doing something else, and real work doesn't soothe them. I'm reduced to wandering the house from task to task listening to an audiobook.

I want to have accomplished something so people will pay attention to me and say nice things about it (oh wow that sounds petulant) but instead I got nothin'.

The Book Tag Game

List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don't take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They do not have to be the "right" books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way. Nominate 10 friends:

The Schroedinger's Cat Trilogy
The Baroque Cycle
Steel Beach
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
Brave New World
The Earthsea Series

The Invisibles
Signal To Noise
Box Office Poison
From Hell

I've listed books and comics, because my original list had some comics in it, and then got too long, so I "cheated" and had ten of each. And this is largely a book list from my youth, books that have taken up space in my head for 20 years and not let go. Other than The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, which I recommended to someone just this afternoon, and you should all read.

Nominating: [personal profile] matgb, [ profile] wig, [personal profile] dalglir, [ profile] darkoshi, [ profile] quirkytizzy, [ profile] bart_calendar, [ profile] manintheboat, [ profile] randomdreams, [ profile] widgetfox, and [ profile] brixtonbrood.

Fuck it, and anyone reading this who hasn't posted in the last three days. Now you have something to post.

It's not entirely nice, but these days I am super patronizing to people who try to argue sexism with me.

"I just think the battles over gender are in the past."
"Aww, that's the sweetest thing for you to think."

"Women don't face discrimination anymore."
"You're really cute for having that opinion."

"These days, men and women are treated equally."
"Wow, you're just precious."

Let me tell you, it is super effective in totally disarming these men, because they have no fucking idea how to deal with patronizing contempt. When someone says, "I'm not even going to treat you like a worthy foe; I'm just going to pat you on the head and praise you for thinking you know anything, when really really I am certain you are coming up with fairy tales about the world that are very romantic and noble, but nothing like reality."

I know how to deal with it, but that's because people have been treating me like a sweet-faced girl for my entire life, and I had to learn how to tell whether or not someone was willing to engage with me respectfully or not rather early on.

I'd like to be able to deal with things in a more enlightened and respectful way, but right now... I've got nothing.
