i recall the moment when you ruined me for other men

Just finally settling down to get some work done on "The Unicorn Evils," after yoga, weights, grocery shopping, eating something before I fell over, putting the groceries away, and putting all the bones in the freezer into stock pots to become stock so I had room to put away the frozen veggies.

Also, the bread is in the loaf pan. I hope it rises sufficiently to be baked tonight or tomorrow, because I want to eat it. With butter and harissa and sardines, because--god knows why--I am craving sardines lately. And other fish. And fresh orange-carrot juice. And harissa. Maybe I need vitamins and fish oil, to counteract the looming lockdown of winter.

I'm surprisingly pleased with the way TUE is shaping up so far. It's giving me lots of good, juicy ideas and character stuff, and it's only going to be better once Emma gets her teeth into it.

Yay for work we love!

The Complaint Department seems to be adapting to her new pill regimen pretty well so far. At least, no obvious personality change, but she does seem calmer when something mildly stressful happens, like being picked up by her monkey or a Kjitten! Attack! (Which we have with appalling regularity around here.)

(One diazepam for the cat; one for me... nah, they'd catch on to that.)

To-do list shrinking slowly.


Any suggestions on where I should look for (store-bought) harissa? Or are you making it yourself?
I've found two brands I like--A Richie and Mustapha's. Both available by internet order.

A Richie is just garlic, salt, and chilis. Mustapha's also has preserved lemon.

Both excellent and made of food, not other stuff.
I need a copy of that mug. Here I sit, reading lj (and facebook) and not getting on with writing.
Ditto to that. Where did you find the mug?
A friend cafe pressed it and gave it to me. I will see if his store is open to the public.
Can I ask if your subject line is a quote from something? I've been pondering a line of dialogue in a current story that's extremely similar to that and I'm curious if I'm inadvertently/unconsciously/coincidentally copying something.
Almost all of my subject lines are quotes.

That one's from Joan Osborne's "Poison Apples"
Okay. Well, it's not like it's a totally unique phraseology anyway. :-)
We put our cat on prozac a few years ago (as he has struvite crystals and stress causes it to get worse). While there wasn't an apparent personality change, when we ran out of it for a week there was a huge difference in his actions/stress level. It really showed us how upset he used to be all the time.
my Newt used to wait and then spit his thyroid pill out, the little shit...

Good luck with medicating the kitty, after that, world domination is easy.
Never fear. I'm a pro.
(One diazepam for the cat; one for me... nah, they'd catch on to that.)

The vet tried my housemate's dog on a variety of antidepressant drugs for similar reasons, including one that said housemate was taking herself on an as-needed basis -- the vet didn't bother writing a prescription for him for that one, just said "give him such-and-such a dose from your supply for a bit and see if it works". Sadly it didn't.

As for the others, it remains odd to see small pill bottles from CVS on the counter made out to "'Teddy Bear' Smith".
Going to the Walgreen's to pick up a script for my cat was indeed odd.
Same here, for the pain patches for Charlie. Filling out the customer record was amusing.

(One diazepam for the cat; one for me... nah, they'd catch on to that.)

I still can't read diazepam without thinking of the Metal Gear Solid game where the main character takes it in order to lower his heartbeat while sniping. Nothing like encouraging prescription drug abuse early.
Will no one think of the children?
