I managed to fall asleep watching commentary on last night's episode of Game of Thrones
. At least I managed to stay away while watching the episode itself. No spoilers, but holy shit, the last fifteen minutes. Holy. Shit. Highlights of katsuko
and my reactions:
"Y'all are too busy looking at the distraction. Y'all're gonna regret it."
"Lookit Bronn, being all badass!"
"Oh, tell me Jamie isn't that stupid. Tell me. Lie to me."
"Is that Bronn again? I can't really tell."
And yeah, I love Olenna Tyrell in the last episode, but I loved Jon in this one. I loved the reunions. I loved all the reunions. There were so many to pick from, and so many of them were fantastic.
I guess that's about all I can say on that if I'm not going to do spoilers.
I didn't get a lot of writing done, but I did manage more than I have since the first day of the month. The thing is that I've got just over 12,000 words before I've written 365,000 for the year... in August. I'm tired. I'm so tired so much of the time. But I'm not ready to give up on my #365K/365Day challenge. I'm going to finish strong, so help me.
So we had the flat tire last night. We got the spare tire on in the rain last night... only to leave in the morning and find out that the spare was also flat. So we pulled in to the gas station to try to inflate it: no joy. We decided to go get some Fix-A-Flat and repair it ourselves. We did have a very nice anonymous gentleman stop and help us repair the original tire, getting the nail out and patching it with rubber cement. Even with his help, it took 45 minutes, katsuko
was late to work, and I am now seriously broke; he spent at least $10 on buying the repair kits, so I gave him the last $20 I had to my name.
But the tire does seem to be at least semi-repaired. It's holding air again, and it rode us from Roswell to Midtown to Buckhead to Alpharetta and back to Roswell today. That's a good sign, as far as I'm concerned. It just has to last until there is money again. I have $50 left to pay back to the IRS. I still need another $40 or so for an oil change. Apparently, we still need to pay $110 to the apartment complex for paying rent late... but weirdly, they're still showing us as having not paid the full rent. (But the letter they sent was dated on the 4th, the day we paid, so I dunno.)
Anyway, so much to do, so much money to spend. So little time, so little money to actually spend. C'est la vie.
