After that, we kringled Chris.

A frenetic christmas decorating party last night. I perhaps was a little off the deep end, almost going so far as to string up lights instead of garlic to ward off the Wrath of John, but I got stuck in a comic routine that I didn't feel like letting go of. I really loved October's idea of filling my little red chalice set with eggnog and putting a candy cane in each one. Adorable. Lots of photos (sorry), and I eventually unstrung the blinky lights and christmas ornaments from my hair. And the house is reasonably clean! Wow :)

I was hoping people would find some time to talk to John III, but mostly we sat around being festive and a tiny bit melencholy. I do think that Buffy's "Once More with Feeling" is the perfect sing-along when you've lost someone and don't want to let go of him, but know that the only way to honor him is by moving along full throttle. It really resonated with some of what's been going through my mind. And a room full of people trying to harmonize sounds like wolves howling.

Anyway, there's bright spots on the very near horizon. I'm not going to jinx it by talking too much, but I see hope, and not just hope's butt as she runs away from me, but a full frontal hope. Oh, yes. Work it, you beautiful anthropomorphic personification.

Ahem. Back to work.

Sorry I couldn't make it last night, but I *did* accomplish some things - I actually have floor and couch now, as well as a heck of a lot of countertop *gasp*

I'll try to stop by at some point.

Lordy! Applause all around! I swept the bathroom :)

Yay! I gotta work on my floors - you can see them, but they're icky.
I'm helping Harmoni clean her house tonight - we're thinking "blowtorch".

Any way you could provide me the address of John III and/or Marilyn? I know they don't want flowers or the like, but I've got this urge to send them a pretty Christmas card.

Give me a day or two on that, I'll blip Marilyn an e-mail. Or more likely she'll read this.

We didn't make it over last night, but we did something in an appropriate spirit.

We went to see the lights on 37th street. Go see them. They're definitely worth the trip.

I'm trying to find some time to do that! They're beautiful :)

Pictures? WHere? And all the older ones, too! *pokes*

I don't know why, but I'm a glutton for photographic punishment.

I have my analysis up on my LJ. I'd try to link it here but I don't know how. please read it before you link to it, tell me if it's horrifyingly frank, etc. How are you coming on finding readings/people?

Re: Description
Not a bit, as long as there's a bit of warning that, well, it's clinical and graphic. I'll link 'er the morrow. Not much luck on people volunteering, but I'll see if someone gets back to me tonight.
