A few moments that stand out from the crowd -
There's a girl I crush on at work. She is absolutely gorgeous... multiracial, cappuchino skin, hazel eyes, individual braids down to her waist... she's also really not from my walk of life (re: fannish... alternative...) So I never expect anything to happen. BUT, she sure is nice to look at, and friendly as well.
Her: [you and Sardonicus] make a great couple! Like you were meant for each other.
Me: Aw, thank you! *pleased noises*
Her: Are you going to get married?
Me: *brain does gymnastics* Nnno... *smiling and nodding*
Her: Oh? Well, sometimes it's better to just live together...
I... had... no idea what to say. I don't know her well enough to explain everything. Sardonicus later suggested I should say yes, and then it's her own fault if she assumes I mean we're getting married to each other. But, he's the one getting married, I'm not, officially, so I couldn't say "we" are getting married....
Brainhurty. When does the evil twin in a mech show up?
So, my boss took me to lunch (Something she did with all my coworkers... only three of us after all), and we talked... she knows I grew up alternative, and I explained the whole "Yes, I did have two moms and a dad at the same time" business. She also knows about my current love life... well, enough of it anyway.
Boss: So, didn't you sell your art?
Me: Oh yeah, at fantasy conventions n'stuff. ("Fantasy conventions" being the 2-approved method of refering to Furry.)
Boss: Does that make a lot of money?
Me: Oh god, no! If anyone ever tells you there's money in furry art, don't believe it!
Me: Yeah, like the animal people... (at one point she did see some of my work, like a year back)
Boss: No, I know what it is... I saw that CSI episode.
I swear I start hearing Twilight Zone music. This happens to other furs, right? Am I on Candid Camera? I am quick to assure her that furry is not like that - well the convention scene wasn't far off, but the other stuff was wacko bizarre - and that furry is not about costuming, that's just the most visual aspect...
Then she goes on her tangent about how she knows how I feel to be on a fringe because she's a Scientologist. Well, at least she doesn't try to convert people.
Kashini has developed a taste for watermelon. I gave her some... then later in the evening she bit the nose off my Windstone wolf. That's the thanks I get...
I am now once again betta'd. I was only in Petco to get cat food, I swear. I shoulda known better than to stop and look at the bettas... lots of pretty boys. This time, I went for color AND personality - a very friendly pastel blue. Definitely a good choice, he's up around the front of the tank all the time, and isn't taking any nonsense from the guppies. I've had some bettas who ran to the back of the tank, very shy, and that was just annoying. :P
The hair experiment is going fairly well, I am planning on addressing all the questions people had. Uh, later. :)
EDIT: Oh yeah, and this happened. Felt it. Wheee!
