Mom brought down breakfast before she went to church. I picked out my morning meds from the collection, and put them in a medicine cup, then fell back to sleep. I woke up a couple hours later and went to go take my bath. Mom had laid out my clothes and put washcloths and my cinnamon soap on the vanity, so I had everything I needed. I finished my bath just as they got home. Mom felt better knowing that I could do my own bath. I didn't wash my hair, but I could probably get up to the kitchen sink and do that myself if I got very ambitious.
G.C. came over, and we worked on the garden club handbook for a couple of hours straight. Again bribing me with food and drink, she'd brought an iced cappuchino from Wawa (Wawa is a convenience store chain in the tri-state area). She left to go to her nursing shift, and I got a quick 3:00 p.m. lunch, and then went back to work on the handbook for another two hours or so. The cappuchino got me really wide awake, but also shaky and nervous. I hadn't had caffeine in a long time.
Jordan sent the first of the new batch of Petit Morts to work on. It's a cool story, Kris. Definitely something for you to look forward to. :) I know, I'm such a tease. I'm still intrigued by Chance. I don't know any more than the general public does about him.
Jules Jones has been talking about a Star Trek tie-in novel that was originally published in a very slashy style. (http://julesjones.livejournal.com/401007.html and earlier posts) She posted a couple of links, including someone analyzing the difference between the original and the revised (stripped of the slashy overtones) version: http://lexx-the-flex.livejournal.com/877.html. I think it's hysterical. From those few lines and paragraphs I read, it didn't strike me as a well-written book in any case, but the first version of the book was highly reminiscient of a number of slash stories I've read in various other fandoms. Jules refers to tie-in novels for movies and TV shows, and stories based on another author's world, as "pro fic." I think that's hysterical as well. Apparently the idea is that it's extremely like fan fiction, but the authors get paid for it.
I was surprised that my arms and legs weren't more sore, after all my exercise yesterday. My left knee has been kind of sore for the last couple of days if I move it certain ways. I think it's just arthritis, but I'll mention it to the next medical doctor I see.
We're having a very late dinner, then I'll probably catch up on Alles Was Zahlt. I missed another couple of full episodes from the previous week, but it was a busy week this past one.
