work. ork. wor. kow. krow. ow.  
I'm here. When I stopped for coffee I saw these three homeless guys in Pioneer Square. They were being rousted from their sleeping bags so that the maintenance crew could hose down the bricks. It was cold out. So I brought them some pastries and coffee. Because it was cold and because I thought maybe I'd feel a bit better about myself. I think it worked a little. And then when I thought about trying to make it through the day after doing really stupid things, I asked myself, "What would A_____ do?" And I know that she'd shoulder through bravely if she was feeling crappy, so I figured I'd emulate her and give that a try.

I hate that I'm competent up to a point and then I lose my shit. And become something of a cow. (Brit speak adds some distance to my failings, I think.)

Must write porn. May end up playing a lot of Text Twist instead.

I *love* Text Twist :)

I think that was really nice of you to buy coffee and pastries for those men.

I love Text Twist. It rules my life at work.

I always consider doing these things. I rarely do them. I really like you for following through. :)

Sorry you've been down so, sweetheart. How can I help?

That's one of the things I've noticed about America: just the sheer number of homeless people. Well, I understand that San Francisco has the biggest problem-- but man. There were dozens of people just on one street alone. And I knew that if I gave every guy a quarter then I'd be down by twenty dollars a day-- so I didn't. Should probably have done what you did, though, at least once or twice. Buy them food, instead of giving money. Otherwise, well-- you know, I can't believe how cheap heroin is here. $7 a bag? I don't know if that's symptomatic of chronic good times or chronic bad times.

What is Text Twist?

Good luck with the porn. What is it? Spike/Riley? There hasn't been any in ages, unless you count the lovely fic itsabigrock wrote a little while ago. :-)

I never give to homeless people, but I regularly feel guilty about it. :-(

Text Twist, Tool of Satan:


Porn...you'll like this. I've had Spike/Lorne in my head. How can something so wrong be so right?

Too bad you have no thing for Ethan. I agree he's too old for most, but he's so wonderfully wicked. But Spike/Lorne would be muchly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*chants* Porn porn porn


There is a dark closet of bad romatic story ideas? I have a closet full of bad evil vaguely non-con porn ideas that will never see the light of day. Those are at least worth hiding. *cackles evilly*

You shouldn't worry about that - its true of everyone except Superman.
You did a good thing today - bask.

That's so lovely! Plus now you have so many karmic points that the next time someone annoys you you can pelt them to death with baby seals and you'll get off scott free.

Now run along with you young lass and write up some of that wholesome hardcore porn.

That was a really good thing that you did. Here's to competency! It's a 'consummation devoutly to be wished.' I hope I got that right.
