Yes, I am still here!

* I'm pretty severely ouchy from the weather. (Non-Bostonians: we swung from 70s and sunny to 50s/low 60s and miserably grey and rainy. Very quickly. Which plays merry hell with my body.) I can count the number of days I've been truly functional in May and June on one hand. This... is wearing on me.

* But Judah and sparkymonster and I saw LATRICE MOTHAFUCKIN ROYALE on Monday night. Here is a video. The video does not capture the amazingness of Mama Latrice, though - the energy in the room was through the roof. We bought VIP tickets, so we got to HUG LATRICE and get our photo taken with her, and she is every bit as wonderful as she is on TV and then some. And I told her I wanted her to adopt me. Oh yes.

* I am sticking to my writing goals so far this week! I would tell you what those goals are, but in my experience, the moment I tell people, I fall off. So I will just say that I'm on track. I'm trying to build a habit here.

* Elayna and I have to go through the piles of college mail, do research, schedule visits, and create a filing system for everything. I'm dreading this because she's dreading it, and when she dreads things she drags her damn feet. Do not want hours of kvetching!

* I would go out to that lawn on summer nights and reach up to the red light of Mars and say, “Take me home!” Oh, Ray Bradbury. You will be missed.

* I love this blog's series of posts about the costuming in The Avengers. Costuming absolutely tells a story, and the blogger picks out some really interesting stuff.

* I think that, if I move fast, I will have time to bake bread today. I should get on that. Aaaaand we have no eggs.

zOMG I'm SO JEALOUS you saw Latrice!

Way interesting blog on The Avengers costuming, indeed. I hadn't thought of it in quite that language, but Hawkeye was sort of The Chick, wasn't he? The one who needed to be rescued in a way. His reaction upon waking...a little close to home, and well done.

Very good points about BW/HE costuming, telegraphs much more 'practical non-super-human' than the others, and it works. Besides, I got to appreciate Jeremy Renner's ass and guns. Nothing wrong with that.

Ugh, college shopping. If it helps any, the overwhelming majority of college mail is garbage.

Also, do you know why Elayna is dreading it? Do you know any college freshman or sophomores who can talk to her? When I was her age, getting college mail and making folders for the ones I was interested in was so much fun, I'm having trouble understanding why the dread on her part.

"Because doing the tedious work of looking through every single thing kinda makes me resent the college I'm looking at." (She has a *lot* of college mailings.)

Love the costuming post.
I, too, do not understand the reaction to Black Widow. It's like people didn't watch the movie.

I hope the aches and pains pass quickly. It's been a miserable week all around. If it's not rainy and damp, we're drenched in pollen.

I am so very happy that you met Madame Royale. And you told her that you wanted to be her adopted child?!? *Swoon* She is going to be one of the instructors on Drag U, too!
