1. My meeting with the company president got changed to today instead of tomorrow, which sucks because it was my day off and I had to drive to Gardena and then the person who was scheduled before me ended up going way over, so I had to wait for an hour and a half! But my review went well, and I got my raise, and now it's done with. And at least that means tomorrow I can just go for the afternoon meeting and can have the whole morning off.

2. We went to McDonalds for lunch and they have a new burger. It looks like the sriracha one was discontinued and instead they have a sweet bbq bacon one. I got it with the crispy chicken instead of hamburger and it was soooo good. Honestly probably the best burger I've ever had at McDonalds. (Not a terribly high bar, but it really is good!)

3. I only played Zelda for a bit today, but I did do four more shrines.

4. I posted more manga!

5. I got some super cute pics of Chloe tonight. :)

Summary: Hino is obsessed with playing sports in high school, but not because he loves sports (he doesn't), or is any good at them (he's really not). He's doing it because that's the way to get a girlfriend (or so he thinks). After getting kicked out of half his school's sports clubs, he's still convinced he just hasn't found the sport he's truly destined for. When he (literally) runs into Noborito Ayako, manager of the rubgy club, it's love at first sight (for him), but all she's looking for is another warm body for the struggling rugby club. Could this be the chance he's been waiting for?

Chapter Summary: Hino's first rugby practice is not what he was expecting.

I reread this poem yesterday, while I was trying to plan out the rest of the month; I'd actually forgotten how totally gorgeous it is, and like...yeah. Okay. This one.

Could one of you kind souls link me to the page where I can set the style for my reading page and posting page? I set it to Lynx, which I hate, and can't recall now how I did that.

Thanks!

1. Day off tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to sleeping in.

2. It's been getting pretty warm during the day the last few days (especially yesterday) but thankfully it's cooling down a lot at night. I don't mind a few warm days, but I really don't want full-on summer weather just yet!

3. I had to go drive all over the place this morning to pick up a special order and deliver it to the customer (we don't usually do delivery but this customer is an exception) which was a pain, but I got reimbursed for my mileage so now I have some cash.

4. I played Zelda tonight and beat Windblight Ganon! That was the easiest of the three I've fought so far.

5. Jasper just can't resist wriggling around and doing silly poses in his sleep.

We met a small child carrying "Less Invasions, More Equations!" (my brain yelled, "Fewer!" and I said, "Nice sign," because people who pedantically correct the protest signs of six-year-olds are not the kind of change I want to see in the world) - [personal profile] sovay.

[personal profile] jennaria
* Spent yesterday spring cleaning. The upside: clean house! The downside: vacuuming should not leave me this sore. Boo.

* Went out with friends to a restaurant not even five minutes from our house, which we have driven past hundreds of times but never gone in. Good food, decent prices, and has excellent onion rings, which is not to be sniffed at. Now we know!

* Signed up for Not Prime Time, in part because I actually have Sufficient Fandoms that (a) I would be happy to get a story in, and (b) I could write a story in. It's sorta sticking my toe back in the fannish waters - the only fanfic I've posted for the past few years has been Yuletide, assignments I've snagged off the pinch-hitter's list.

An extra poem for today (or for April 16), only a little bit because I was talking with a friend about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead the other day, and that play always makes me think of tennis. Tennis, and death possibly being a boat.

1. I made gyoza and edamame for dinner. So delicious!

2. I posted manga! And also did a little translating, so hopefully that will lead to more manga being posted within the next few days.

3. The kitties are all having a lot of fun exploring the computer room bookshelf, since all the knick knacks have been taken off and some books rearranged. Once we actually get it arranged the way we want it, there won't be much space for them to play on it at all, so it's nice to seem them enjoying it so much in this in-between stage.

Tonight I went to see Anastasia on Broadway (it's still in previews, but opens next week). It was fantastic on several different levels, but one of the things I loved most was how great an adaptation of the movie it is—like, no spoilers, but it's really faithful to the movie while also being a really different show, and it works so well. I would also like to give a special shout-out to Dmitry's floppy hair, which was truly superb and made me a little weak in the knees.

We also went for delicious Russian food and vodka beforehand, because we were feeling thematic; so, in keeping with the theme, some Marina Tsvetaeva:

I myself have a cat sleeping on my head in Habitica. And in real life, a dog the size of a cat who would like to be sitting on my body, whenever he sits.

Every spring I think about starting a gardening blog. I never do, because I don't have the energy, but every year I think about it. I take a lot of pictures of my garden but they are not the kind of pictures that are interesting to people who don't garden. Still, now that DW has image hosting, I think about how easy it would be to blog about gardening here. Would you be interested?

I spent a lot of time thinking about this poem while we were in Greece, but I had so many poems I wanted to post while we were there that some of them had to get saved for later, and this is really more of a poem about Latin than about Greek. Luckily, I then missed a whole bunch of days, so here is an extra poem for April 15.

1. I have to go in to work early on Sunday, so I don't get both my weekend sleep-in days, but I can at least sleep in tomorrow as usual.

2. Although I finally got everyone else's finalised paperwork back from HR to give them their evaluations and tell them about their raises, I still haven't found out mine, as they are making store managers have an interview with the company president and mine isn't until next Tuesday. But! I realised that everyone else's is already reflected in Kronos, the timeclock management software, so I decided to sneak and see if mine was in there, too, and I'm getting a $2 raise, yay! :) It will be reflected on the current pay period which ends tomorrow and is paid next Friday.

3. I didn't play too much Zelda tonight, but I did get the next divine beast opened up and am ready to tackle that tomorrow.

4. Kitties!

We're not actually sure how Starfleet funds anything, but what are some viable, functional alternatives to capitalism that *are* well explained in SF&F? And how do societies using them interact with capitalist societies?


One of the panels I was worried about has acquired other panelists, one has not. So, even though I am just the freelance moderator, I've got to prepare thoroughly for this one. Do you have any suggestions for SF that examines alternatives to capitalism?

Do you think Iain Banks's Culture belongs in this panel, or is it so post-capitalism that doesn't make sense to call it an alternative?


Also, I have five pink and five black "Fight Fascism" stickers, from here: https://studentactivism.net/ If you are going to Wiscon, and you would like one, call dibs here.
