I spent the first night in the new apartment on Tuesday... internet is in ration for a while because I can't even start the process until I get a key to my mail box from the PO and that's a week off.

But first time I've ever lived alone! We'll see how this goes.

Thanks but I mean mostly it's just chagrin (Chagrin! that's the word I was looking for, also that i defined very poorly) at the fact that despite years of publicly hating Christmas it turns out it takes exactly one box of cookies to grow my heart three sizes.

Whats the word for when you're delighted but also feel like an asshole?

I'm pretty solidly in the fuck christmas category. solid grinch, but I just got home and my roommate told me some woman and her daughter dropped off a bag of cookies for me, by name. There's a card that I think is signed Amanda and Dave. I don't know an Amanda or a Dave.

I have spoken to my neighbors possibly twice, once when one of them was canvassing for Planned Parenthood to get a petition going to overturn New Mexico's abortion trigger law, and possibly once during a GOTV effort, don't know if they were neighbors or not.

AND YET apparently some one A) knows my name B) gave me a basket of cookies. I quote:

mini chocolate sugar cookies with vanilla almond royal icing

gingerbread cookies

mini vanilla meringues

candied ginger sugar cookie "pretzels"

chocolate chip cookies

raspberry rugelach/nutella rugelach


I mean like whaaaaaat?!; I can't even thank them because I have literally no idea who they are; I ostensibly hate Christmas and yet here I am with a box of bad ass cookies and a smile on my face.

Because there's a fairy tale article and a jab at the hero's journey I would just like to take this moment to remind everyone that Joseph Campbell was just wholesale cribbing from Vladimir Propp who was writing specifically about Russian folk lore.

Also I want dumplings.

I can just sort of do dumplings, I can do gnocchi and I can do chicken and dumplings. but yeah they never come out the same twice.

other dumpling styles I'm like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
