So last night I had a panic attack because I realized my already scheduled stuff conflicts with going and being a show pony for my grandparents at a fancy event while I'm home. And then my grandpa had to calm me down. It was very nice of him. They were more upset that the people had scheduled it with such short notice than that I wasn't going to be able to be there. ♥ This did mean that I didn't sleep well and may have woken up screaming at about four in the morning, so here's hoping I wasn't as loud as I thought I was because I don't want to have that conversation with the people next door.

Now that I think about it, though, I think I may have woken up screaming after having a dream where I debated educational justice with hockey players. That's probably the only reaction anyone should've had.

I need to go frantically do work, but first, here are some things that are making me happy right now. Because, whatever, there's some holiday shit going down.

INTERNET. If ever you are thinking, "Hmm. I miss that person! I wonder what s/he is up to! I should send an e-mail that way," DO IT. Send that e-mail! I woke up yesterday morning to the best e-mail ever, which was the best for the sole reason that it was from someone I haven't properly spoken to in years. It was amazing and she even attached a picture of her cat! Which was great! (On the other hand, don't do this if it's someone who broke up with you a year ago and the e-mail is actually because you want to get back together, not that you say that at the time. That is a douche move and my ex-girlfriend who did that basically destroyed every last shred of goodwill I had for her when she pulled that stunt.)

It snowed the other day. I know pretty much all of you live in places where that is a thing that is a regular occurrence, but this is the first time I have lived somewhere where it snows, so sitting in my bed and watching it snow outside my window was a little surreal. Okay, a lot surreal.

My nephew has been playing flag football! My sister claimed 13 as his number, because she loves me and thought he was going to be on the Dolphins. :D He ended up on the Giants, which is obviously an inferior team, but he also sacked the quarterback to prevent a touchdown in their second-most-recent game! I am very proud of my boy.

In closing, this is what Leighton Baines had to say about the return of &PIENAAR; to Everton: I have been texting him since the day he left to see if he was coming back. (There is more here about their innate understanding and chemistry and how Baines is REVELING in Pienaar. &team; &homoerotic sports journalism;)

Does anyone else do that thing where you make a post that says "today" all over the place and then end up crashing before actually posting it and then having to change those time words? Because I do that a lot and sometimes I do it for several days straight and then just go "FUCK IT" and delete the post. I also did it last night, with the worst headache I've had in ages, which means you are out any context for the time I almost asked my mother if her shiny new toy could subscribe to a channel of all pegging all the time.

Other than that, yesterday was a good day, even with the multiple failed attempts at going to the beach. At some point between the beach attempts, I walked into my room and went, "Why the hell do I think I've never talked to [ profile] coppertone about an Avatar Silm AU?" I didn't get much past Fëanor as the Fire Lord, but I do want it! And I expect that now that I've mentioned it, Claire and I will spend much of the first day I'm in England discussing how amazing it is. Or that is my hope, whatever. Claire, you're on notice.

I've suddenly had the "I don't live in Florida anymore" realization. Someone asked if I was from Florida today and I went, "Um. Originally, yes, but I don't live here anymore." It's weird, since I lived here for just shy of twenty-two years, but ... realistically, even if I get a job in Miami, I'll be living in a different part of Miami from the one I lived in the vast majority of that time.

Whatever. The beach was amazing this morning and now I'm going to my favorite place in Miami to have some tea and then a bunch of us are going to watch the Panthers and the Maple Leafs game at the BAC with high BACs. This will possibly involve strategic swapping of seats and sections. Stay tuned! Should be a sellout (officially; not according to StubHub and the official ticket exchange, but whatever) crowd and half of them might actually be Panthers fans!
