Happy first week of website, CleverManka!

I am having a sad day because my kitty is in the ICU and I am worried about her and also about my bank account. She's pretty much guaranteed to be there at least overnight and WOW it's so expensive.

At least I had already planned to work from home, so I don't have to associate with people.

I opened Photobooth to comply with your request and my cat instantly jumped in my lap, so here's me and Mina saying goodbye:

I've never been good at letting go of things and people that I love. I heard this incredibly irritating aphorism when I was a teenager: "don't be sorry it's over, be happy that it happened."

Mostly, I say fuck that, I'll be sad if I want to! But then my adult self intervenes and reminds me that I am happy this place existed, and happy to have met all of you, and happy that we will take The Toast out into the world with us.

Me that was me I made that cocktail!

Sorry, I just really enjoy that someone out there in the internet associates something I did with The Toast open thread. I'm actually kind of thrilled.

I saw this last night and immediately knew it was you. I hoped you'd turn up today so I could be excited at you!

Meeting you and ocwut is a not-insignificant part of what The Toast brought to my life. I hope we can make the most of it even post-Toast.

(And to be totally off-topic, I just found the disc that belongs in the DA: Inquisition case I loaned you, so...I don't know what's in there, but sorry about that!)

I lost my favorite job ever and survived the following four months of unemployment mostly by getting up in time for the link roundup every day and refreshing the site as I worked on job applications. It was WORLDS better than the last time I was unemployed, when I got into a spiral of boredom, self-doubt, and loneliness. How could I be lonely with all of you to talk to?

And even though I have another job now, I still refresh the site throughout the day, and I'll miss having all of you to talk to.

LOVE Wynonna Earp. It is completely ridiculous and often makes no sense, but it's so fun and gay and easy. I really hope it gets renewed, because 13 episodes is not enough.
