Hi guys. Thanks to all the commenters on The Deep That We Shall Never See; I'm sorry I haven't responded yet, but I will. It's a problem of... not knowing what to say, and being... on a weird page, I guess. Anyway, I do sincerely appreciate it. And luckily [ profile] rm has been holding down the fort.

I've been taking a computer break. Saturday, I had to watch CoE again, with my darling [ profile] faris_nallaneen who had not yet seen it. And the lovely [ profile] magnetgirl came over too. Not for any other reason on earth could I imagine us going through that again. (D. for instance ran out of the house and walked for several hours to avoid having to do so.) [ profile] magnetgirl was a goddess among women to sit through it a second time and hold my hand through it. Then we did shots for numbing purposes, except for [ profile] faris_nallaneen who had a previous engagement, and left for it, shell shocked and stunned.

Today I left the house. It was exciting, maybe the most gorgeous day of summer we've had yet, with not a cloud in the clear, blue sky. D. and I drove down Riverside Drive, and had dinfast at the Boat Basin Cafe -- a big juicy charred burger, with juicy red beefsteak tomato, and red onion and sharp green lettuce. It tasted unbelievably good. Then we walked through Riverside Park, stopping at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial to watch two guys practice the fencing scene from Hamlet. (Which I discovered just now through a little google-fu is for an actual, free production, to be performed on the North Patio there from the folks at Hudson Warehouse.)

And then we wandered over to Broadway, and D. bought me a copy of The Demon's Lexicon by [ profile] sarahtales.(I've just finished it, and I loved it, actually. If you like YA, and/or watch Supernatural, I strongly recommend you give it a go. Two brothers, demons, snark, magicians, betrayal, love in odd places and of odd kinds... it's quite lovely. I knew what the deal was before I was a quarter of the way in, but it's not really an "oh what a twist" book -- the fun is in watching it unfold to the characters, and that part is done really beautifully. It's the first entry in a trilogy, but absolutely satisfying as a standalone.)

After that, we sat in the sun for a while, reading, and snuggling, and laughing, with the breeze in our face. Ten minutes at a time went by that I didn't say something about Torchwood. (I think it was at least half an hour, but D. disagrees.)

Then we drove home.

Life, it goes on.

Also, sex is nice. Note to self: Do not get so wrapped up in bloody Torchwood that you forget this simple fact. *grin* I don't know how D. puts up with me. But I thank all the small gods for it. The dozen white roses he bought me "for Ianto" are sitting in front of me now next to the tv.

I have stuff to say about writing and stories and art. But that will wait for tomorrow later today. I really need to get to sleep.

Ok, D is fab. The roses are just wonderful.

And yeah, don't forget how wonderful real life can be. ;)

*hugs* I've been sitting around in a daze for a few days. When I finally forced mtself out of the door to Do Stuff, it helped. Of course, before I reached that point I had to write a fic. *g*

Haven't reached the point of watching again, yet.
I will, though. There was a lot of brilliance there even if some of it upset me, mad me angry, and made no sense (and I don't even mean that thing at the end of Day Four. :p)

Awwww, D. is the best! But you knew that.

Yay for getting out and seeing things and being in the sun and air! Don't forget to do that occasionally too. :)

After last week, I thank all the gods for the ask!verse and [ profile] amand_r. I'd be in much worse shape if not for them.

I'm telling you. STILL AWFUL!

Let it be said, however, that it would have been much harder to watch it again if I wasn't in being "strong for you"-mode! And I had fun. It's really nice to spend time with you, even if it is filled with the breaking of your fangirl heart!!

As to that next to last bit? My husband hasn't seen it yet. So there I was, sort of in shock for two days on and off, trying to explain things without giving things away completely. At random moments, mind you. Patient man.
