Well, I’m vertical. I just couldn’t stay in bed any longer.
Holy cow. Run, don't walk, and listen to this. https://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2018/04/19/603959932/from-the-vaults-a-showstopper-hear-prince-perform-nothing-compares-2-u
800 words of a betrothal ceremony, and a phone call informing me the dishwasher will, barring fire flood or Act of God, be delivered and installed on Monday.
I feel ridiculously like I've finally won one small battle this week.
I'm playing the Doors box set, and Odd Trundles has decided "LA Woman" needs his accompaniment.
Odd Trundles has had his walk, and is now fractious and cranky as a tired toddler.
Update: It is possible to look at more Oreos and not want a single one.
*feels slightly sick*
Not too long ago someone was shouting into the void about how crappy Audacity is, and wanted to know if there's any other free audio editing software out there.

Rolled out of bed at 6:30am because the Little Prince's alarm had been going since 6.
He's going to tell me he wasn't up late sneaking YouTube videos.
I'm going to say "Okay..." and make the I Don't Believe You face.

Definitely best to eat something before I go back to work. Writing takes physical energy, my fellow wordsmiths. Take care of your corpus.
A bare 1200 words on Maiden's Blade today, and none at all for other projects except Hell's Acre.
