Television Night! There was a bit of clutter & back & forth with Kira first-- she wanted a tape measurer, & I couldn't find ours! They've got some irons in the fire that I don't want to jinx, but if they work out it could be real handy for yours truly. Let me say here: don't have like, ten people text me a flurry of contextless messages! "Text Kira." "Text Kira." "Text Kira when you get this." I was like "Uh, I hope this is like "can I use your tape measurer?" & not "Jenny got hit by a car" or something, jeez. Give a guy a heart attack! Luckily my biology has two hearts. Jenny showed up shortly after Kira left while I was putting clothes away, & she changed into pajamas before fordmadoxfraud & elladorian showed up. I went out to grab Jenny a burger (I ate leftovers) & to buy some Maker's Mark, & got home in time to fatbutts & her dog Archie. Lilly had missed the Eleventh Doctor episodes with the Weeping Angels which is a bummer for her, but we plowed ahead with Doctor Who anyhow, watching "The Vampires of Venice" & "Amy's Choice." & hey, who should surprise us with a visit but Lilly's guyfella, James! Both of the Who episodes featured Amy Pond's relationship with her fiancé Rory. There were some clever flourishes with the vampire myth-- making fairy tales vaguely more scientific but still totally fairy tales seems to be a very Doctor Who thing-- & the bit with the Dream Lord was also really well done. & Rosanna's collar? Be still my heart! Not to mention that "vampires living in the canals" was the premise of my second Oubliette campaign. Bravo all around. Also, I never get tired of pointing out that I find Amy Pond much more attractive once Karen Gillan is able to act & user her incredible charisma. Yes! Then today, oh today. I've been pretty busy, but had a work-lunch at Rye House, which did fill my belly quite well.

    The fog of insomnia makings putting your thoughts in order hard. Makes it effort. So I've been sort of absent & silent here, I know. At least I've…
