Real Life tl;drCollapse )

So, in this spirit, I am only going to keep this account until I move. After that, I will be posting (hopefully more regularly) at circa_eve. Most of the postings will be about fannish things, although I am sure I will also talk about how life is on the other side of the country.

Conversation a couple of months ago:

My Dad: So, I think girlfriend of 6 months and I are going to get married in a couple months.
Me: Okay.
My Dad: My church friends think we might be rushing things. Do you think we might be rushing things?
Me: Maybe, but you should do what you think is right for you, and not necessarily care what your friend's view of the situation is.
My Dad: Cool.
Me: Are you going to tell Mom? Cause you might want to get on that.

Conversation a couple weeks after this:

Me: So have you set a date yet?
My Dad: No, but it'll probably be sometime in the next couple of months.
Me: So, is it going to be a big thing?
My Dad: No, I think we're going to "elope." Just me, her and the justice of the peace.
Me: So you don't want me and Mere there?
My Dad: No, I don't think so.
Me: Okaayy...so are you going to tell Mom soon?
My Dad: Of course.
Me: Right.

Conversation on Tuesday (In Giant Grocery Store):

My Dad: So is there still a marriage penalty on your taxes?
My In the Dark!Accountant!Mom: It depends on whether both people are working. Why? Are you planning on getting married soon?
My Dad: As a matter of fact I am!
Me: ::starts walking away quickly::
My No Longer in the Dark!Accountant! Mom: Oh.
My Mom: When?
My Dad: November 20th as a matter of fact.
Me :stops:
My Mom: What?
Me: What?
My Dad: Yep!
Me: WTF
My Mom: That's nice.

Later conversation in the Baking Aisle:

My Dad: ::looks at my mother's diamond ring:: Where'd you get that?
My Mom: Oh it used to belong to my aunt... ::launches into family story::
My Dad: That's cool. So, would you want to sell it? ::laughs::
My Mom: ...
My Mom: What?
Me: No! Of course not! ::wants to bitchslap dad::

Conversation on Wednesday night:

My Sis: So guess who just left me a message? Dad.
Me: ::braces self::
My Sis: Guess what he asked? If I could come down on Sunday (the 11th!) to be a witness at his wedding.
Me: Huh.
Me: SUNDAY?
Me: He didn't call me...
Me: But seriously, SUNDAY?

Yeah, so it looks like I might have to try to get out of work early Sunday to go to my Dad's wedding.

So, my grandfather, the one who has been recovering from a stroke since this winter just got diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer. It has spread to his lymphnodes. I don't know how long he is expected to have, or what type of treatments they are going to recommend.

I know this is naive, but its just so hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that this would happen to my sweet grandfather, after he was just starting to make some major progress gaining his movement and speech back from the stroke.

And I know this is self pitying, but I really wish that I wasn't all alone in my house right now. My mom is up in Ohio with my grandfather and grandmother, to visit and extra ironically to celebrate my grandfather's birthday.

I'm so grateful I'm going to be working all day tomorrow.

I'm at Job 1, and the phones have stopped ringing so I actually have time to be bored and update my LJ (for once).

..unpleasant feeling of thinking you have your shit together, and you're if not organized, then at least effectively fulfilling your obligations, only to find out that is totally not true. It's time's like these graduation doesn't seem as depressing as usual.

On the plus side, going to Williamsburg to see merelyn and corporatepiracy to sing karaoke and make her watch the latest episode of Supernatural, which I haven't seen yet because of missing the beginning because of a V-Tech vigil and not wanting to come in late. Thank goodness Mere has Tivo. I hear good things about it, though and am really excited.

I got an internship!!! Here! Its a collectively run feminist newsjournal! How exciting is that? Granted, they won't be paying me, but I feel totally capable of doing what I did last summer and working at a coffee shop to pay the bills while working at this place.

In less awesome news, my phone has finally died after a two month battle against injuries sustained after being fallen on. So contact me through email or IM.

ETA: html fixed. Why you shouldn't post while sleep deprived.

*collapses on couch, pulls out health cereal and begins to eat from box* Thus ends the longest two weeks of my semester. Unfortunately I can't say that after this I won't have a lot of work to do, but I can say that it will be managable, and not involve me not sleeping for nights in a row. Plus there's only two more weeks of classes, and 1 week of finals to go and I will get to catch up on my sleep for a long time.

Thinking about college ending has been making me really misty eyed for the past two weeks (stress related? perhaps) For anyone that is witnessing me at graduation, I hope I don't snot on you.

Its just so fucked up thinking about how little of college is left. SO FUCKED UP. It's probably a good thing that I have work, as well as my school president getting arrested for two DUIs in the space of two days to distract me.

Go Mary Wash.
