I awoke to the sonancy* of garbage trucks

Thought one: My, but they're early
Thought two: Damn; I knew I forgot to do something last night
Thought three: Well, I've little garbage, and it's cold enough outside that it won't stink
Thought four: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I awoke later to the electronic polyphony of Chopin's Nocturne No. 20.** P's phone calls are alway heralded by Chopin's Nocturne No. 20.

Thought one: My, but he's early
Thought two: What a pleasant surprise

Whoops. Somebody forgot to set her alarm last night.

I wasn't a great conversationalist this morning (yipesjustwokeuploveyougottashower!), but I'm really terribly glad he called.

It was SO cold last night. I stolidly refuse to turn on the heat, however. It's only September! And I'm old enough and pigheaded enough to believe that my concept of what constitutes "autumn" can override the reality of any major temperature change. Glaciers could be abutting my house and I would continue to roll-to-disbelieve*** until November.

I did, however, wear PJs and put an extra blanket on the bed. Mmmmm. Snuggly goodness!! No wonder I didn't want to get up. Even the Maxman didn't dare disturb me with his mewls of love this morning. Or perhaps he did, and I simply didn't hear him under all those blankets.

Need to call service guy to walk me through beginning-of-season maintenance for my heater. I know it can't be that difficult... but I'd like to have a handholder there anyway. I should probably flush the system at some point, too. I never did shut it down last spring.

This song is hypnotizing me. Must harness radionic energy and use it for good!!

P is at his mediation hearing right now. His (soon-to-be)ex has fallen off the face of the earth. She hasn't replied to any letters or phone calls, and is, in fact, no longer at her last known address. Afaik, even her lawyer has been unable to contact her.

Will she show up? Will she vie for custody? Nobody knows.

I am sending him comforting mental lullabyes and be-not-afraid handholding thoughts.

ADDENDUM: Nocturne No. 20***** just alerted me to the fact that she was a no-show. They are now requesting a status hearing (instead of a final hearing, as the judge is something of a loose cannon). So P's still in limbo. Very anticlimatic... the term he used is "legally blueballed." ("Put THAT in your journal!" Uhm, OK.)

Monstrosity is a mere month away. We need costumes.

Am loving this thing Wes put together.

The music "Making Christmas," especially, is perfect :)

"They'll talk about for years to come," indeed!

In other news, I noticed this morning that one of the tires on my car is pretty well destroyed. A big blurp* of it is sticking out, as though the inner wall were weakened. I'm so glad I saw it!!

I'd rather pay you tuesday for a hamburger today for a new tire than have to deal with a blowout on the thruway, that's for sure.

There's nothing musical about that bit. Perhaps the sudden realization that I had a subliminal theme going was enough to disrupt it. Ah, well. Too bad. Cue world's smallest violin.

Digging this CD. Very much my speed and style. Thanks to monkey for recommending it :)

* This word is NOT in my dictionary! I want a refund!
** To best replicate my ringtone, ignore the first twenty seconds
*** Any good DM would tell me that I can only do that once. I'd peer up from beneath my many layers of sweaters, coats and blankets and roll to disbelieve him, too.
**** Is too a word. I said so.
***** OK, now it sounds like a fragrance for goths
~ And if Nocturne No. 20 were a fragrance for goths, the spellkaster theme would sell me on it in a second.
