Yes, I'm feeling chatty tonight. I've written another letter to Silver and I'm much happier with this one. It's not so preoccupied with the asexuality thing, the handwriting is actually pretty legible (most importantly, the line "I'm very attached to you" is very clearly attached rather than possibly attracted) and I intend to actually send this one, along with a box of stuff. It occurred to me to search the internet and I now have a list of things that could be sent, including stuff I'd never have thought of like socks, eye drops and batteries.
I'm still sitting on my bed with my blankets and my radiator. The hot chocolate's long gone and although I'd love another cup, two big cups of milk would not agree with my system so I'll resist.
I'm listening to music, which I do very rarely. I'm warm, lazy and beginning to feel the first signs of sleepiness that come with a pleasant quiet evening relaxing.
Contemplating getting a book down..
Also enjoying not feeling guilty that I'm not working with Alex and Joey, for the first time in a month.
This weekend I'm going to go shopping, maybe go to the NaNo TGIO party as a proud failure who has written 30% of a second book, which I wouldn't otherwise have done (The Sequel should, by the end of March, be about 100,000 words and maybe by this time next year I'll have an idea of how the plot goes).
In two weeks I'm going to Godless Christmas and I'm going to see lots of lovely, clever, funny, articulate people, in three weeks I'm going to spend a day drifting around a spa and be put to sleep with a lot of coconut oil and next week I'm going on a boat to France with my work friends, providing one of them hasn't got/has recovered from E coli. Don't eat burgers from a van, people.
It might snow soon which would be lovely. I like winter. Am I the only person who actually quite likes coming out of work into the dark? Apart from the fact that it reminds me of being a student - I had one lecture a week that finished fairly late and got used to coming out onto campus in the dark, I also like the way lights look so bright. Traffic lights, car lights, streetlights - they're so bright and pretty. I hate being cold but if I've got adequate clothing on, I like winter more than summer. I don't tend to go nearly as droopy in the winter. I like winter, I like chilliness, I like snuggling up in the warm, I like the dark, I like pretty lights. I'm so a winter person.
