You have to try and get the coziness factor up to maximum

Good luck!

eXisteZ was good. But Cowboy Bebop is better.

And this winter is some weak-ass shit. such a letdown.

Some of the acting was off. There were some painful scenes. But the story and the game and that gun made out of bones made up for it. 8/10.

i got my start date for my new job in Maryland. I have to report to work on the 14th.

my last day at my current job is wednesday. I'm getting a ton of paperwork sent to me from my new job. I have to take a drug test. LOL. I will have almost a month between paychecks, which is going to be a slight problem.

I've had a number of my friends reach out to me and kind of gush about me and how much they'll miss me. I spent half an hour last night texting one of my girl friends and crying cause she was saying such wonderful things to me... and I'll miss her. I wasn't expecting any of that. I thought I would simply leave and nobody would make any fuss or care, but I was wrong.

My family is throwing me a going away party in two weeks, right before I leave. It'll be the first time a few of them see me as a woman, which makes me a little nervous.

It really feels like my male life is over. Like it's died. I know what people mean now when they refer to their given name as their "dead name." It does kind of feel like a death. Not only cause I came out and chose a new name, but because my cis marriage ended, my job ended. I life in this city is over. Such a strange strange trip

I think it still holds up well. I think the fact that it doesn' incorporate a lot visiual "future tech" in the story and it's light on visual fx makes it more believable. It has very little in the way of fx, actually. Some of the best scifi is like that.

I think the acting was good. I can watch Jennifer Jason Leigh all day. I think that some of the performances and especially the dialogue in the film are very David Cronenberg. It's kind of part of his style.

Yeah, it' kind of like the anti-Matrix in that way.

And same re: JJL. She really is wonderful in just about everything.

I'm really sorry to hear about that. Seeing as he probably has an easier time communicating with his sister than with most others, does she know how he is taking his prognosis?

That's unfortunate. Yeah, it's pretty hard to know how to best offer support when everything just feels beyond your control.

I am so sorry to hear that. That seemed really sudden.

I hope your gf and you are holding up.

this kind of upheaval is mind-boggling

i feel as though i'm stretched nearly to my limits with a new daughter (far from the actual truth, of course; it's just an emotional and physical extreme new to my experience). but it's put me in a state where it's as if anything else shifted or became imminently or obviously uncertain ó be it job, relationship, living situation, etc, there would simply be no resources left with which to deal

i admire your fortitude

finally, i made a reservation at her favorite spa and found there is a brand new 4-star hotel that is 5 km from there, which i got a room at. i bought a bottle of Gosset and a few things to make a nice snack that we can eat in the room. it turned out to be mighty cold that day so we first went to get the room, as I didn't want stuff to freeze up in my car. I didn't know how to keep it a surprise, I said I had an errand to run but she was very puzzled when I took my huge leather bag out of the car. she only realized what was happening when the clerk asked me to confirm it was for a King bed. very happy though, also impressed that i thought of everything such as cutlery (which they ended up having in the room), contact lens stuff, champagne flutes and a plug for the bottle (so we can open it before going to the spa and finish it later with the meal). shower was fancy and we could see inside from the bedroom (!), which allowed me to take artsy pictures of her showering with her glass of champagne.

i didn't know there was free entry to the spa on your birthday, unfortunately i prepaid our access to ensure we could get in. could have saved a little there. still, we got free breakfast because they gave a 50$ credit for the in-house restaurant. i was very late for work.
