02:55 pm - That's what friends are for
mazisexton has given me some good suggestions.

I apologize if you don't hear from me in the near future. I'm going to take a couple of her suggestions in particular to heart.

I'm scheduling a weekend with the deities. October 7 and 8 are days I simply won't be available to anyone because I'm only going to be there for them. She suggested two days of "prayer, offerings, reflecting, and conversing with the Devas," and I've been wanting at least that for a long time: I think that I just needed someone to suggest that I find that deeper involvement, rather than to tell me to get away from things and drop the things I'm juggling.

Rather than taking time off, a poor solution at best for me, this is a chance for me to get intensive when it comes to ritual work and to deepen connections that sometimes get neglected. Call it "recharging" if need be, but that's not really how I see it.

This is what I really like about mazisexton: she knows me well enough to realize that telling me that I need to drop a ball isn't going to help. Sometimes, I wish I was like her, and could do for others what she just did for me.

And on Thursday of next week, I know what I'm doing. Hey, we've all got to have a guilty pleasure somewhere. It'll be better than watching on my grainy, snowy TV. (Reception is improved, but not by enough to really enjoy the show on that channel, though it has improved from "unwachable" to "bearable," at least on certain days: thanks tesinth.)

I think I'm going to watch I Sailed to Tahiti With an All Girl Crew tonight.

You only sometimes wish you were like me? *Gasp!* but I'm so hot and hot girls want to make out with me! ;D

Maybe someday we should really sail to Tahiti. . .

There is no one I'd rather do that with.

I think we should.

Then it is settled! Uhhh, know how to sail? I know how to get sea sick, I don't think that helps though. :D

I do, actually. Granted, I've never done it on the ocean, but I have some of the basics down, at least. All those Hornblower novels have to come in handy somewhere.

I have a feeling that if we get a small enough ship, I can handle it alone, at least until you get your sea legs.

Btw, speaking of ships, I have something I'm sending to Raa. . .

They left from Hawaii to Tahiti? I cannot recall 100%. We'd have to watch out for whales, whales!

I bet sea legs are hot. And if we can get some booty we'll technically be pirates, and scurvy is very hot.

I am sure he shall appreciate it, we fly back on November 26th (wheee?). :)

Yes, Hawaii to Tahiti. And you can totally be the whale lookout!

I'm sure we can find some booty along the way. I might even be able to bring some aboard. . .

I love this stuff! It's the snack choice of pirates everywhere.

Ohh, I think I have that, so I should watch it too. It will be like a weird space/time thing.

You know, a weekend with the Three Kindred sounds like an excellent idea. Perhaps I should try it, once I get my room back and I have privacy again!

Miss ya!

That whole "weekend with deities" thing is a really, really cool idea.

Yeah, I think that's awesome. I'd like to do something similar, although short of camping I'm not sure how I could find that peace and solitude in a living environment like mine.

As for what you're doing as of Thursday, I can't see it -- it is blocked as friends only! I'm sure it's a good idea, though. Guilty is rarely bad. ;)

And Anne, I just realized this was you. Hooray!

It's not Friends-locked.

It's the Smallville Season Premiere.

At the Drexel Gateway.

Ahh, I think I clicked the wrong link (Mazi.)

I'm really sorry you are going to this... it must mean your life has hit an all-time low. ;)

*giggles* And it really amues me that you signed your comment in your own lj. You shouldn've come to tailgate over here!
