Had some stuff i my head during lunch, perhaps beause I did not read. I finished Moll Flanders at lunch yesterday, and haven't started anything new, opting to play a few rounds of Atari Go (capture game) with the Palmpilot... anyway trying to find that stuff again...

I keep being attracted to (and even, quite surprisingly, of late being involved with) women who seem like good candidates for dependant status rather than as any kind of equal .. more importantly they are people I can help but perhaps not people who can help me.

Not that I've quite found anyone who has. Some who can, seems, but .. hmm.

And thus while I'm (perhaps) looking for a traveling companion, a fellow student, another Seeker usw. .. I keep finding potential projects, younger siblings and, er .. *sigh* .. The D/s ideas get all twisted up in it and confuse things even further. Incidents of me topping a couple of recent dalliances simply serves as an illustration of the difficulty in question ... which is not to diminish in any way the pleasure and amusement I've gotten and shared.

Similarly I have a strict no (more1) pets rule. I'm not strong enough to prop up anyone else even half of the time. too many of my spoons go to dragging my own carcass around and getting out of bed regularly. As well, I'm quite familiar with many of the idioms and cliches in that plot space including the wounded bird and the white knight, and so on. And for various reasons including spicing up the writing a bit, I don't want to play into any of those any more that is useful.

And, of course, for me, it all comes back to utility, as I have little else else with which to make judgements. Perceived utility, illusory progress, and trying to 'first do no harm' are rather messy metrics to decide things like what to eat for dinner.

1Good kitty, sweet kitty, noisy kitty. Yes, I know. Yes, I should take out the kitty and put down a fresh one tonight...

Wow. So many noteworthy things happened this weekend that this post has been hard to compose, and I'm only inputting it Sunday evening. There was a big party Saturday .. really big for here. I think we topped out at 20 momentarily, with maybe two dozen guests total.

It has been revealed that our neighbours are, in fact, actually, members of an evil cult. I resisted the urge to play a particular South Park episode while they were in the room. And then today, I helped them move furniture.

It was revealed that E works with A, although he knows her as R. Fascinating, no?

There was a nearly complete set of my ,er, {previous and current} girlfriends at the party. (Yes, that is the best phrasing my weak little mind could manage, move along.) In further proof that I am not a guy, I am still on good terms with all of them (that I can find). Still it was more than a bit odd having a collection of them in the kitchen simultaneously.

There were some popular kids at the party, too, and they were reasonably well-behaved.

I ended up with a guest for the weekend, and tried to display good hospitality. She seems to have enjoyed herself. I'm sure I did. We also both benefited from the time away from things, it seems.

I have a room again, and even a bookshelf. No functioning workstation in there yet, but two monitors lurk.

I got wooed on OkCupid. Still no actual messages, but *shrug*

Kitteh hid for most of the party, but seems to have incurred no new damage.

Underworld: Evolution was terrible, but not really bad enough to be noteworthy, as noted by many LJers before me. Perhaps the greatest letdown is that Ms. Beckensale wears the same PVC catsuit, corset, and boots from the first film nearly all thoroughout the second film. Also, despite the baffling plot and it's unexplained resolution, a third film seems to be threatened. Hopefully Ms. Beckensale's people can get her some new clothes, perhaps from Ms. Jovovich's people.

Monday is a bank holiday, and the boss is still out of town. Going in to work tomorrow is still a possibility, but not an appealing one.
