Saw my mom on Tues. She mentioned that she had been thinking about throwing a birthday party for me but gave up on the idea. I knew it wasn't going to happen, but talking about it made me a little sad.
Candy makers, HALP! I tried to make lollipops today, but the candy thermometer was way to behind. I can't find a way to tell 300degrees other than the cold water drop test. Is there another way to tell?
Since Camp NaNo starts in 2 hours, I'm questioning the brilliance behind creating my own polytheistic creation myth with the rule that there are 10 major gods. Like this is something I can write on the fly. #writerbrain
Oh Wise FFeeple, lend me your thoughts! The only volunteer opportunities coming up are the slightly more difficult, higher pressure Dixie Dog slots. It feels over my head, but if that's the only thing coming up I feel like I should do it anyhow. Input?
I don't have the patience to be as creative as I want to be. I just want to be able to get all the ideas out of my head, have them be perfect, and have them be loved massively. It's not that much to ask.
Volunteering: This week they only asked for Dixie dog volunteers. The Dixie Dog program is great, bringing dogs up from the south where the adoption rate is very low. But Dixie dogs need a lot more than the other dogs (they're in quarantine, have a tiny walking area, and have less training) and I'm sure that's not a good place to start. :(
So having read, watched, and listened to Harry Potter obviously makes me a bit of a Potterhead. But now that I'm rereading the books, I'm also getting watery eyes at wildly inappropriate times because the way future sad things are hinted at. #NerdProblems
