come to bed

Her name came up today/to my surprise/my eyes watered up/but I didn't cry

For those of you who believe in these things, and those who know how unlikely being here at all is:

The last couple weeks, I've been really upbeat...two good CVs out (one for a Dean's position), and then, I realized that I And curious. So, I went back to the dating site I hadn't been to since I went blind...and the old male curiosity kicked in (Dear Ace---just let me know, and I'll leave the door unlocked)...and I wrote! Got comments! Totally awesome last 48 hours!

Got an e-mail from schmimi...Isabeau died Sunday morning. Something like 16 years since Laurie nursed her back to health, her liver went out of warranty. Izzy was far luckier than even I...she had two amazing women love her, with only a short time between. I will forever hold M-Re dear, as she gave me three grand gifts...her visit, the Small Good Baking, and being Izzy's godmother.

Coincidence? Of course. but still. Rest well, enormo-cat. And M-Re makes me desperately want to believe in Karma, because she's due whatever the world values the gratitude of three mammals.

Now, I have to convince someone I can easily teach 200 level Geology classes. Besides Botany, that's my weak science. On the other hand, I *do* know plate tectonics, crystallography, volcanology and hydrogeochemistry (hi, ruthling!). I *know I can teach all the astronomy classes they need. I'm a Cancer.

Curiouser and curiouser.

I don't have a problem---I just have an excessive solution to the non-problem most people, I find that sometimes my stuff winds up in a number of I, like you, need figures for a Napoleanic battle, they should be together.  So....  Plushy!

From left to right: Da Cheat, iPod, fallen Homer--the baskets, top to bottom--(top) Wizard Mickey, six Dwagons; (middle) Squishy2, a PowerPuff Girl, the octopusglove; (bottom) all the Homestar figurines (hidden), Red Blood cell, Ebola, yeast, white blood cell; (floor) plague, Dogbert, Dilbert, brain cell, d20.  Then, on the right Grover, my Football Monster and MachoFish.  Also, the scarf.

Many of these were gifts (and that makes me Xmasier)  Thank you to anyone who added to the collection; you rawk (also, I've used some of these as learning aids)  (the oldest one is MachoFish, given to me by a gf in undergrad...the scarf is older)
