I cannot. Fucking. Wait. Screw you, January.

January started out with me in the grocery store, at night, freaking out because there were too many different kinds of macaroni and cheese and I just wanted the kind that was macaroni with fucking cheese. It was not my finest hour. The next week, I teared up in an immunology lecture over pictures from the 1925 great serum run. And I spent the lame opening act of an amazing hip hop show pretending to be avidly texting so that I did not have to make eye contact or any other sort of social exchange with anybody. Really I was writing schmoopy gay porn, which my phone rebooted and ate.

Sometime around there, and around getting a cold and having something truly awful done orthodontically, I gave into the inevitable and sank into a puddle of chocolate pudding and Anne Bishop novels. I'm still there. It's getting kind of sticky. On the other hand, I can now make some damned fine chocolate pudding in no time flat.

The frankly bizarre result of this is that I've signed up for a comic book Big Bang with a rough draft due in May, and I'm fusing The Authority with Black Jewels. This is a thing that is happening. Working title "Jenny Sparks: The Secret History of the Dark Court." I'm hoping that between now and then I'll think of something less ... less.

How many different ways can I call Apollo the Warlord Prince of Ebon Rih? We'll find out!

The cold and the teeth and some bad timing -- I skipped Crossfit for two weeks. Until tonight.

Protip: don't do that. Oh my fucking god ow. I forgot how to snatch. And how to squat clean without winding up on my back with the bar heading straight for my throat.

Ow. Bruises in new places!

Thanks for all those links! I shall have to check them out.Re: education in geanerl, I have a lot of thoughts on this and hope to do a full post on this after I get my lecture notes for tomorrow written, grocery shopping done, important email written, etc. We'll see if I get to it today! Anyway, I agree with you about the false premise thing except that it's not really so false. Based on the numbers I've seen on income with vs. without a bachelor's degree, it seems that going to college really is a requirement for a middle-class (or even non-poverty) lifestyle. The problem is that there's this unspoken agreement, that if you do go to college you will get the middle-class lifestyle, and at twenty-two. That is a big part of the problem.I think your kids are lucky to have such a wise mum!
