Addendum: It was a bad, bad idea not to write today.

I did the things that needed doing that writing would have left me with no energy to do, things that pertained to writing, but are not writing. I did those things, so it wasn't a waste. But...

I hardly slept last night. Maybe three hours, total. And those were three hours of nightmares. I was awake at seven-thirty, up at eight (though I did manage to let Spooky sleep until about a quarter till ten).

We are beginning to see the first hints of H. Jeanne. Perhaps the tension riding the edges of the storm is affecting my mood as much as anything. I should have gone to Mars today. Dorry is alone somewhere high above the Solis Planum.

Maybe I can lift my spirits with a meaningless meme (ha, ha, ha, oh never mind), snurched from grandmofhelsing and robyn_ma:

Usually Found to Be: At my desk, on my iBook.
Favourite Colour Jelly Bean: Red.

Always has in hand: Nothing.
Slightly Embarrassing Experience: Acting like a total fangirl when I met Johnette Napolitano.
Favourite Movie: Blade Runner
Favourite Book: Ever? Sheesh. I don't know. That's dumber than the movie question. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.

Favourite Joke: I don't know any jokes (no, seriously).
If She Were A Food: Asparagus.
Favourite Saying Or Quote: "One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly." -- Friedrich Nietzsche
Best Suited To: Time travel.
Often Confused For: Those who seem certain. ( I suspect this question meant to ask, "Often Mistaken For," but there you go.)
Most Prized Possession: I lost it years ago.
Nickname: Tai'lah.
Middle Name: Ramey or Rebekah, depending.
Classic Quote: How the hell is this different from "favourite" quote? Um. "His eyes were hard as porphyry..." -- Dorothy Parker.
Unique Talent: There is nothing I can do that could not be done by at least one other, somewhere. There are no "unique" talents.

Nope. That didn't work.

    Gonna try to keep this short. I'm tired, despite a Red Bull. It's been a dispiriting, above and beyond Covid-19. Currently, it's 70˚F and storm here…
