Takeaway achieved, by delivery guy.
I'd always rather be more presentable when there's a delivery guy. It seems like the messier I am the nicer looking the delivery guy is.

Also the buy a house plan is actually chugging along in its groove too. There's still surveys and maths about money to do, but *xfingers* things seem to be going this time. Which would be nice, because nice location and stairs I can get up and down and a bathroom off a little lobby like I wanted.
Mum says we can go look at it again before I absolutely positively decide, which is good, because I keep pondering more things. Also wondering if the repairs will be as simples as mum thinks or as not simple as I think. But if mum is correct then things look interesting.
I am watching Fringe season 4 and I'm just fed up of it. ( Read more... )
Also I have a headache, and my back still hurts, and I seldom see interesting TV when in pain, funnily enough.
But I think it's more in general I don't like where the story is going and keep only watching one or two episodes and being bored.
Astrid is good though.
Think I'm going to go read books.
I've been reading more Renshai books by Mickey Zucker Reichert, and they do get better as they go along, but I'm so EPIC bored of teenagers and love triangles that it's taking me ages to drag through reading them again. I mean, important things could in theory happen to teenagers, but mostly they're stupid and don't know they're stupid yet, and yet books keep treating them like the only important life phase. Like, one generation of teenagers have an adventure, then a series will blink until the next gens are teenagers too. Not interesting!
But these books do have two women and three female characters in the main party, plus some other women, and ongoing acknowledgement that half the world are women. Now if only they could spend time thinking about something other than men. Well, more than a paragraph or two. Even when one is thinking of being the best with a sword they're thinking in terms of matching a particular male's skill. Why is the story never about growing up to be as cool as your mother? I miss Black Canary.
... oh, I was trying to change the subject to one I wasn't grumpy about, that kind of didn't work there...
Still. Books. Or internet forever.
