La chupcabra ala Jacqui! (at Burial Grounds)
The best part of fall is crunchy.
As dawn starts to burn the edges of my inky blue night sky, I roll a potato across the living room floor for my cat to play with, so I can finally go to bed.
Monk and I stayed up all night to make turkey pesto lasagna rolls, out of three completely different recipes, and they were amazing. We still have 13 left. The very fruity-but-tart margaritas were definitely worth it, if I’m vibrating a little.
Why is my cat obsessed with dragging raw potatoes around the house? Could be worse habits, I suppose.
Coffee, make yourself. I’m busy dancing around to The Glitch Mob and Lindsey Sterling. Have you heard Lindsey Sterling? Violin and some damn good beats. Coffee, are you done yet? Coffee, I’d like to drink you now, hurry up!
You know what upsets me most? Probably not but I’m going to vent anyway.
Friends you’re close with but suddenly stop talking to you without any reason you can think of.
Of course there’s a reason, and I’m sure I’m to blame, but with no explanation, not even an “I’m upset with you” or “You did x so I’m not talking to you anymore”, I can’t fix it. I’d like to at least apologize for whatever I did to hurt or offend; ideally I’d like to know the transgression to be fix the problem within myself, then to not do it again in the future. If suddenly you find you can’t call me friend, please do me the honor of at least giving me an explanation, if for no other reason than to be able to better myself. I’ll not hold your reasons against you, and would instead thank you for giving me that little bit of peace before wishing you well in your future endeavors. I can definitely respect a person much more who is willing to at least bring my faults to me, even if it’s too late to fix them.
Basically, I’m hurt, confused, and bewildered that the person in question doesn’t care enough about the friendship I thought we had to want to fix a problem I didn’t know there was. Or respects me enough to bring the problem to my attention. Obviously the friendship means a lot more to me than to them; I’ve reached out in every way I know how without being obsessive, I think, so now the ball is in their court.
If you’ve read this far, thanks, and sorry for the negative post.

So, it has come to pass, that this one has finally succumbed to the reality that I am not, in fact, super woman and I can’t, in fact, work two almost-full-time jobs, work on my jewelry and have horrible insomnia without some sort of repercussion.
I’ve been feeling under the weather, so to speak, for about two weeks or so, then started getting better a few days ago. Then about 3 days ago, I couldn’t stay hydrated, water didn’t satisfy, and my throat, which had been feeling sore, became a different kind of sore - a hot, dry sore, accompanied by pitiful, unproductive coughs. Then I couldn’t stop coughing. Add in a few sneezes here and there, lymph nodes so swollen they’re hard and a rattle in the chest with the occasional pea soup green mucous, and what do I get?
A trip to the walk-in clinic, that’s what.
She said it could be bronchitis, or a sinus infection, or maybe something viral. So here’s some antibiotics, some cough syrup with codeine to make you sleep, and get some of this other cough syrup. Picked all that up, tissues, and soup, called both my jobs, and am bunkering down for the next 3 days.
Oh, also, my Gamestop manager Brandon suggested whiskey, lemon juice and honey. I have lemon juice and honey, but no whiskey. Anyone want to deliver?
