Right, well. Life has had a bit of upheaval.

I am planning to go back to my studying though. It had gone a bit by the wayside recently. I have a few more old texts where I show my face. One where I'm chasing a...heaving beast or heaving breasts or something. I have all my books and journals now, so I can get back to it. I also want to remind myself of the Irish language since I seem to have had trouble with it over the past few decades. I need to brush up. I don't want to forget the things that tie me to Ireland.

I also decided I needed to cook really a lot of food. So I went out and bought what turns out to be more ingredients than can fit in George's kitchen. So don't be surprised if some goodies end up on your doorstep. Joey, Famine and Clio, the first batch of noms is actually headed your ways this evening.

I plan to shower the entirety of my social circle with food. Please give me hugs in return. I could use them.

Guess who's back? Were you all aware that Shady is back? Apparently I am supposed to tell a friend. Shady is back and he's chopped liver because no one wants Marshall no more.

My goodness the music these kids listen to. And apparently this song is 'old'. One of the kids in my shelter was dancing to this and then one of the other kids told them they shouldn't be listening to music so ancient and they played some strange, new thing with Shady again about burning. I swear one of the lyrics was 'you have to watch her leave through the window, guess that's why they call it window pane' or something ridiculous.

If only they knew how ancient their worker was. They asked me what kind of music I liked and I sort of squeaked something about Flogging Molly and shuffled away. Because 'Actually I prefer choral chamber music without instruments, because we used to believe they came from the devil so they weren't allowed in church!' might make me sound something of a loon.

So really, if I think about it, I don't think 'window pane' is any more ridiculous than believing a hurdy gurdy came from the devil. That Shady still sounds like a deeply unpleasant person.
