I don’t know what the Hell is going on or why but I’ve been literally beating the crap outta myself since Saturday night.
** twisted ankle — stepped off my shoe whilst dancing Saturday night
**bruised inner elbow — slammed against the edge of the bed
**multiple little bruises all over arms and legs from wrestling with J and C
**squashed my fingers in the door this morning at work
**bruised/scraped lower back — whacked it against the faucet getting out of the tub
**stiff and sore from sleeping, effectively on the floor (the air matress deflated sometime in the night)
**popped myself TWICE (so far) with a capacitor in the transponder box I’m testing this morning
**and, of course my head hurts like a stone bitch already
And I gotta say that the emotional stuff yesterday was pretty fubar as well. Someone on my friend’s list said “Astrologically, I’m pretty sure Saturn was anally violating Mercury in a sodomy aspect in the seventh house of FUCK YOU yesterday“, and you know – I gotta agree.
Last night was interesting in the Chinese-fortune-cookie-curse sort of way. Nobody was communicating and everything seemed to be heading towards this huge confrontation.
Last night was supposed to be a ‘date night’ for J and I. HE thought this meant simply “us” time . I thought it meant ‘date’. As it turned out – the everybody wound up at the house. To further complicate the issue, we have no cash for going out. This (at least in my head) meant that date night had turned to family night. J was still trying to make it work from an “us” time perspective. He wanted to go swimming, hot tubbing. I was SO not in the mood for that what with my ankle, arm and head all pounding. But instead of telling him that, I just assumed his psychic connection and let it go. Bad Mare, no biscuit. So yeah…talking is a good thing.
And like I said, the *whole* family was home. T was on the computer in the living room. C was in the back end of the house. He was *trying* to give us some alone time. Or so I assume that’s why he disappeared like that! At first, I was thinking he was mad at me/us for something but then I realized that he must either be incredibly tired or wanting some alone time of his own. (Poor guy, I felt rotten for him! I mean, he had banished himself to a fairly boring evening alone. On the other, he did get some much needed sleep.) And the Girl was – well a five year old kid. She was right there with us, watching TV, eating dinner, getting ready for bed, wanting to play, etc. etc.
It took some doing, a lot of talking and a quick walk around the complex before it all got itself sorted out.
Tuesday nights are now offcially J and I alone time nights. He said he’d gotten used to having me to himself for the last almost seven years. He is embracing the poly lifestyle but he wants Mare time to himself; I totally grok and agree. I like having just J and me time. We connect when we’re just being together, even if we aren’t being frisky. He’s my other 1/2 in so many ways; calm where I’m hyper, logical to my emotional (Spock to my Luxwanna? *laugh*), geek to my geek.
But enough of this fluffy-bunny crap.
In other news, I’m running a classic Marvel game on Thursday nights. So far, I’ve only ~just~ managed to not kill the PCs. I’ve got them in a very, very bad place. Its an alternate dimension where a 1000+ y/o vampire is the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth. America (which is not actually America anymore) is divided up into the 7 kingdoms/dukedoms of vampire lords. Right now they are in the private hunting preserve of a really nasty sort of vampire. You know the type. One who has aspirations to move his station up in the world. And our player characters just might be the tools he’s looking for.
*insert evil laughter here*

Somehow it seems like more … ah,well. I’m trying to find a 2nd ed DnD game to play in too. I have some great chars that I’ve not gotten to play in about 6 years. (*jonesjonesjones*)
In theory I get my hair colored tonight. Dark, dark brown with bubble-gum pink chunks. I am too excited! *squee*
I’ll post piccies for those that want ’em.
EDIT: She said let’s do black with the pink. Who’m I to argue? It looks REALLY cute!
