I also try to keep up with the WicDiv and Sex Criminals trades.

Other Info: I've been on DW for years but quit posting when Tumblr killed journaling. I want to get back into it if it has a heartbeat again. Expect AO3 shares of new fic I write and random posts about whatever media I'm watching, with less frequent, slightly more personal posts about things like life updates/craft projects/complaining about law school and law students and the law (I'm heading into 2L). Some of those I lock, depending on their content. I'm also open to discussing my adventures with ADHD.

I picked some tags for things I enjoy that you should feel welcome to talk to me about!
ETA and then I went through the post and added bold tags so you can read it!

Sign ups will close in about 4.5 hours from this post's datestamp (given the mod's ability to not notice the time). Let's say at least 4.5 hours and leave it at that. I will post a 15 minute warning. I'm going to trust that you can check the previous post for the time & date link.

After several requests and some consideration, I've made the requests visible in the hopes that we might lure a few more participants into the exchange.

I feel a lot better today than I did last night. I talked to my mum, and she sort of agreed that things were crazy and can't continue as they are. I honestly don't know if it's that, or if I just had a really bad day yesterday, or I was just really tired and dehydrated, but I do feel much better today. Mum's going to talk to my sister's social worker, ideally with my sister there, about how she feels and the effect all of this is having on our whole side of the family, in an attempt to explain that she needs to step back from it. Or get my sister to listen to what she has to say. One or the other. And she's suggested some form of counselling she has access to at work, which her family members can use, because it might not have as long a waiting list as they will probably have at most other places - because the stuff that's upsetting me is very much happening now. But I don't know if it will have a waiting list, and she said something about how she tried to use it once and it was somewhere very far away and hard to get to, so idk. We'll see.

My MN is back at school today, although only in the mornings - in the afternoons he can decide if he wants to stay on, or come home. But it should still take some of the pressure off at least.

They're cutting the canteen staff and reducing the stuff the canteen does at work, which doesn't bode well for future jobs going. But a receptionist and a cook aren't really the same things, and there's no point worrying unless we actually hear something about it.

I've started reading the Communist Manifesto, since I am a socialist, so it's probably a good idea to know what that means and where it comes from. I'm not very far into it, and it is interesting, but it's also weird how immature it is. Also racist and sexist, which surprised me but that not much when I thought about it. But they go on for a little while about how the lower levels of the bourgeois, the 'petty shopkeepers' and artisans, cannot be truly revolutionary, they're actually reactionary and just want to roll things back to how they used to be, while never seem to understand that the meaning of the word revolution is 'to roll things back'. Also their belief that the proletariat are completely uninfluenced by religion or culture or anything like that, are just suspicious of it because it's just a tool of the bourgeois. Okay Marx. It is interesting though, and makes a lot of interesting points.

I was in a depressed mood this morning and decided to do something mindless and doofy to cheer up, so I put on a Hidden Object Game. Unlike the last time I tried doing that, I didn't feel insulted or pissed off at all by the end of it.

That's not to say it was great, but it killed some time.

A family of four are touring a museum when their pet cat (which the daughter brought along because otherwise this story wouldn't have started) escapes into a real Egyptian tomb. Centuries ago, the EVIL PHARAOH sealed his GOOD PHARAOH brother in the tomb as a mummy, and cursed him to stay there forever unless I guess four dorkshites pass through and free him somehow.

Each family member has a thing they can do: The brother can use goggles that detect the mystical metals pharaohs make puzzles out of, the daughter has a time amulet that lets her see what a room looked like when the puzzle in it was solved correctly, the dad has a shovel, crowbar, and sledgehammer making him the most useful son of a bitch ever to enter a hidden object game, and the mom has a diary which has the hint system in it.

I am a little worried about the brother though. He takes one look at the old "Weigh your heart against a feather" routine and...

Sister: "They weigh your heart and if the sins you've accumulated are greater than this feather, you can never pass on."
Brother: "...well I'll never be able to pass that test."

Dude you're fucking TEN what have you DONE?

So you... go and solve a bunch of stuff and the daughter can see ghosts and assures you that the good pharaoh has passed along to wherever good pharaohs go at the end, and that's that. Like I have the feeling the framework story was sort of grafted on at the last minute because "A bunch of dorks get stuck, then unstuck from a temple" wasn't really enough of a plot even for a hidden object game.

Whatever. I do feel more cheerful now, so goal accomplished.
