fuzzy badgerness

FFF volunteer party, etc.

Well, I had some interesting people-watching tonight. I also had a wonderful backrub. Sadly, I was completely shy about approaching the people I wanted to play with, so I kinda didn't really play. This aggrivates me. I need to stop being so shy. (esp. with other women, dammit!) At least part of this relates, I think, to having been "out of the loop" so much for the past N+1 months. I guess I need help getting out of the house more often. *Wry grin* And I need to get those new shoes before I collapse into a bucket of whimpers and whines. I mean, any more than usual. *wry chuckle*

Met and remet a lot of interesting people, at least. ;-) Now that I've been home for a while I don't feel as bummed as I did when I got home. Looked at the motivations of other people, and realized that I'm not pond scum, which I already know, but I'm glad I reminded myself all the same. J'r will probably be home sometime in the next half-hour or so, depending on whether he's doing the groceries tonight or not.

I was reading an interview that Bill Moyers did with Margaret Atwood. This is my favourite quote so far...
MARGARET ATWOOD: "That's true. Yes, that's absolutely true. Sometimes people play these silly games. They say, "What would you have been if you hadn't been a writer?" And I say, "A ballet dancer," which is palpably absurd, because I get dizzy. So the answer is really nothing else. I can't imagine anything else I would rather be. "
It quite makes me giggle, which is a good thing. The website around this particular PBS show is wonderful, I'm just pissed off that I can't get RealAudio working with 10.2.8, and I don't know WHY. The bloody disk image won't boot, so I suspect that the version I have is for some newer version of 10. *grumble*

But enough complaining...hopefully today, I'll go out if my foot will let me. Plan to head to Pandemonium, see if the book I ordered is in yet. Then possibly take the cupon I have for Borders and try to buy something from the remainder of my gift card from the holidays.
A random craving to read something different from whatever all the books I have in the house, not that I don't already have a large amount of books here. ;-) Just a desire for something a bit different.

Congratulations! You're a.. Pixie!Well, aren't you a cheerful little bugger! You're very pretty (in a curious, impish sort of way) and exceptionally fun. You probably have a penchant for acting, singing, dancing- some form of artsy pleasure most likely involving music. Anyone can see that you're incurably devious and the troublemaker of all troublemakers. Watch out! Some Fae may see you as rude and find you to be intensely annoying.
