Curse you, Wolfie!

So a while back I was rewatching Angel and casually mentioned how I noticed a few similarities between Wesley and Åke. Wolfie went all “oooh, otp” - and now I can’t stop thinking about it. I certainly hadn’t meant it that way but damn if it wouldn’t work.

And a few days ago - having mostly forgotten about this torturous headcanon - I decided to watch a bit of Angel.

And there it was again.

So now I have my own little Angel headcanon hell involving Åke and Wesley. There may be a fic forthcoming. Who knows.

Would anyone want to read it if I did write it?

Had a good weekend, but forgot about sunscreen when I was going to be out in the sun all day Saturday. Now, I'm having to deal with a nasty sunburn and some sun poisoning. Yaaay.

Pulled a muscle in my back. And feeling sick to my stomach. I feel like a zombie in the sun, rotting away.

Can't fully shake this stomach bug I've been dealing with for nearly a month. Every time I think I'm better, it hits all over again.

So fun story. At present I just got my paper accepted (with minor revisions) to a botany journal. This is fantastic and I'm super excited, but my supervisor for the paper has been under a lot of stress of late due to assorted career and life-crises. It seems that she had a meltdown this week when my friend (and also a student working with her) mentioned offhandedly that we were going out for dinner with out group today to celebrate the paper/catch up since he's been busy. She then proceeded to try invite herself along for the dinner, which would've been awkward for two reasons:

1) She is a middle-aged woman with very little understanding of our humor/ inside jokes.

2) She is also our supervisor, so conversation becomes more guarded around her, and that makes things awkward if a group of 20-something year olds are chatting about assorted "unprofessional" things.

So we said no to inviting her. Apparently, this was a HUGE problem and she has now stopped talking to the both of us, unfriended us from Facebook, and has begun to "reevaluate [her] whole set of relationships and values with all of you".

Needless to say I am both confused and irritated about the whole affair, and have no idea how to approach my meeting with her today...

Yeah I just had that meeting. I made her cry right off the bat by calling her out on her childishness. I think things are better now though.

Still irritated with the whole affair, but at least it's more resolved now.

I'm alternating between wanting to cry and waring to throw up.

On the one hand, everything about this sucks. A Trump presidency means real and visceral fear and danger for so, so many of us.

On the other hand.... damn, I wish I could even say I was surprised. I can't help being a miserable cynic, but that doesn't make it hurt any less. I keep reminding myself that we are not the first people to be emotionally eviscerated by our country's choices, and we won't be the last. The world is full of exiles and refugees who love the countries which have nonetheless fucked them over. At long last it turns out we're not special, though we've spent 230-odd years convincing ourselves otherwise.

When I think of "Americans," I picture short-sighted, racist, xenophobic bigoted assholes. But ultimately, wherever I may live, America is my home, and home to my friends and family, and countless others with dreams and goals, and they are kind and hopeful and flawed and good and, above all else, worth fighting for.

Well said, dvorak. It is terrible, and there is something to be fearful of. But we won't implode immediately, we've still got fighting room to make sure that the very worst doesnt happen. I'm just so very disappointed with the way things went.

We have to try our best no matter how hard it gets. That way we still have our diginity, even in defeat.

My debit card and SSN information have been breached in a phishing scam. I got the card canceled and they're going to send a new one within the week, and now I have to go to the Social Security Administration office nearby to get a new number and some other things that I should do. So basically today isn't really a good day lol

Was taking a walk tonight. I saw a woman with a nice dog, I asked to pet it. Well, I TRIED to ask, but before the words could leave my mouth, she said "I don't have any money."

Wow. Really makes me feel great about myself. Thanks, bitch.
