Silly over-coded meme

I would do that Santa meme, except on my LJ scheme none of the usernames show up, as the links are white on white. Ack. I suppose I could hand-alter the code, but why bothere?

Mmm, bed

I'm having one of those just-wanna-curl-up-in-bed days. Not tired, not depressed, just very attracted to my bed, which is basking in the sun right now.

On a related note, I think I know why Luckie loves sleeping with me so much: I have Velux blanket, which is usually the bottom layer, since my sheets never stay up. So she slides under it and it must be like sleeping with a big cat, as the Velux feels a lot like her own coat. Luckie looooooves sleeping in the bed and will go under, curl up next to my tummy and conk out in about two minutes :)

Tuesday travails

After managing a little work on a new project, had to go up to the allergic clinic for my shot. I'm glad it's only every two weeks now, or I would never stay on schedule, with all the travel. While there, I met this little boy, who must have been around 9. I totally wanted to adopt him and take him home, he was so cool. Sometimes you just meet kids like that, you know? The ones who are confident (but not jerks), smart (but don't feel "superior") and have a good attitude. Poor kid's arms were all wrapped up in bandagaes and ice packs, for the three (!) anti-venom injections he was getting. Youch! No parent to be seen either.

A short bus trip later and I was at Arts Center station, where I happened to run into the very same English couple I gave travel advice to while coming in from London Saturday! They updated me on their travels, teling me what they'd like (High Museum) and what they'd hated (World of Coke, MARTA buses not turning up). I told them about the Landmark Diner down the street and how all the English I've taken there have thought it was Paradise. Then we split up our separate ways. I hope they continue to have a fun trip!

I seem to be pretty awake now, so I will try and get some work done... though Luckie keeps coming here to summon me to, I guess, go sit on the couch and play with her. She doesn't approve of me working ;)

*fans mouth*

Just made Bombay potatoes using a spice mix packet from England. Wooooof, was that hot! LOL. Not that I mind, as it make sit more authentic than Indian food I make myself (I leave out the chiles) but I am impressed and my nose is running like mad. Yikes! The packet is coriander, chiles, cumin and a couple of things. You sautee some parboiled potatoes, onions, and tomatoes in oil, add this packet and bam! hot Indian food. I served it with some mango chutney on the side. I so wish I had a glass of milk right about now.

Oh Great Cthulhu!

I have been an extremely sedulous devotee this year.

In January, I visited my relatives in Innsmouth (100 points). In November, I fed [info]cracicotus to a Shoggoth (250 points). In October, I recruited [info]versailles_rose as a new cultist (30 points). In June, I stopped [info]tharain from defiling Lovecraft's grave (-20 points). In March, I prepared an ocean voyage to R'lyeh (200 points). In September, I rescued [info]arjuni from being sacrificed (-200 points).

In short, I have been very good (360 points) and deserve the honour of having my body used as a host for one of your servitors.

Your humble and obedient servant,

Submit your own plea to Cthulhu!

---Even in meme life, I travel a lot. And I fed Caleb to a Shoggath!

Potential Good Stuff Around the Corner

Several good business opportunties seem to have fallen into my lap lately. My ex-coworker Tonette sent me a client of hers she doesn't have time for anymore, somebody who seems like they will pay me quite well. I also picked up a site maintenance job w/o even trying. I've got another opportunity that involves some retail enterprise on my part but should safely earn me a bit of cash come the new year. And I have a potentially very lucrative sub-contract opportunity which will make me very happy should it come to pass, which depends on whether the contract gets landed. I will be grateful for any and all of this, as I seem to have gone through my cash at the moment. Things will be fine come January, as my boat will come in as far as people paying me, but this month and last are very sketchy income-wise, since in general traveling and working don't work that well.
