The past week has consisted of saltwater, car fumes, long distance digital conversations that waver consistently between happiness and loneliness (the line between them is indeed thin and easy to cross, I've come to understand), cat-induced asthma, and the cousins/Freya/everyone taunting me with Starcraft 2. Finished Naomi Novik's Tongues of Serpents on the beach. The first three books of the series (especially His Majesty's Dragon) are superior, as I found I was losing a lot of Laurence and Temeraire and the political landscape in the natural world being explored throughout this one. The addition of Rankin didn't ever get resolved, either, which was slightly disappointing. Still, quite an enjoyable read. (I am inclined to love dragons with personality, free will, and some amount of savagery no matter the subject matter, however.)

I'm tempted to just let this devolve into a series of adjectives and nouns, completely without adjoining sentences of exposition. I've got a Bete Noire in the oven for my grandmother's birthday party tomorrow and another plain white cake planned for tomorrow, for those cracked individuals who don't want to eat chocolate covered in more chocolate.

At some point reality is going to come crashing in again, but for now it's nice to just drift.

I was not taunting you! Just trying to... encourage you to get it.

Subtly.
