Work went by so quickly today despite the fact that I worked overtime. I had long meetings and a long phone call today. I think that’s where the time went. I’m still super happy that I found that solution for The Scribbled Victims. It’s pretty exciting to tear down so much that I’ve already written when I feel like I have a strong foundation to rewrite. A______ is still in the hospital and won’t be going home today. I’ve continued to keep her company via text. She just called me dummy. I love it. It feels like a pet name.

I saw Amirah last night. Great visit. We got to talk one-on-one and I got to hold Inti. Today, I went to the office in pajamas and worked for a few hours. I love wearing pajamas in public. They’re comfortable and I feel safer in them. If you’re diagnosed with major depressive disorder, you should be allowed to wear pajamas to work. In the evening I read, talked to Andrea and went out to dinner. I ate too much. A______ is recovering. That’s a big relief. Tonight should be her last night in the hospital if things continue to improve. 

Last night with my BFF.

It’s amazing what I can accomplish if I deprive myself from masturbating and block Facebook on my computer. A problem I have been struggling with in The Scribbled Victims since my writing vacation in Puget Sound has finally been solved! I can’t believe it took me so long to discover this solution, but I guess that’s just how it works. I let Orly act when Yelena no longer could. She found her own solution. That’s all I’ll say here. What a great day. I had breakfast with Farishta which meant lots of laughs and tonight I get to see Amirah.

Black Friday. I slept a lot again. I’ve been so lazy lately. A______ is still in the hospital and it looks like she might be there for the rest of the weekend. Worried ponies. When I finally did get out of bed, I went to the office and reconciled the September and October general ledgers. I love when the office is empty. I finished what I wanted to accomplish over an hour sooner than I expected. Tonight, I’m going to Release the Bats. Cynthia will be there so we’ll be able to talk more freely. I’m going to read now.

Flyer for tonight at Release the Bats.

I woke and fell back asleep many times. The first time I learned A______ was in the hospital. She’s been there all day and will be there overnight. I’m very worried about her. I talked to Andrea later in the day. It was nice. In the evening I drove up to Mary’s for a vegan Thanksgiving dinner. I brought a vegan turkey I had never tried before. It was okay. It was kind of like eating bread. It was dry. I met new people at the party and Cynthia came as my guest. We needed to talk but couldn’t openly.
