Interlude:

Some things:

* can't remember the last time I wasn't hungry
* I have to pee an awful lot
* mandatory weight gain
* cramps that are mild but everyday -- but mild -- but everyday
* today I started crying at the drop of a hat

That's right, LJ/DW: I'm pregnant!!!!!

It happened ... kind of by accident, by which I mean that we stopped actively trying because the antibiotics I took for my throat last summer fucked up my whole body and it became impossible for me to tell when I was ovulating, but we never went back to using condoms, and then lo and behold one day I'm a week late and suddenly hate the taste of olives.

Best responses I've gotten so far are from elfie -- who, when I said "guess what," answered with "have you gotten your symbiont?" -- and buddy PC -- who, when I texted her a picture of Prego pasta sauce, said "aww, you're making spaghetti! when will it be done?" and now ends all of her texts to me with #teamspaghetti. Also my grandmother who apparently hated the news and complained about how I should be finishing my education first, which is the exact response I was anticipating hence me not being the one to tell her.

[Long rant cut from original version of this post because I was feeling v emotional at the time. Spoiler alert: the whole "pregnancy hormones make you emotional" thing is NOT A MYTH, I repeat it is NOT A MYTH!!!]





Anyway.


Other things:

* the neighbors got a baby goat but because all goats sound like humans, this baby goat sounds like a baby human and it just stays outside and makes its sad baby human sounds and it's really unnerving

* I'm back to school and that's fine except I fucking hate my Shakespeare teacher, which is disappointing especially because I'd heard such good things about him, but he's super extra and super oblivious to the gross sexist shit he's saying to a room filled mostly with women, we're less than two weeks in and I already can't wait for this class to be over

* sourdough toast + mashed-up avocado + scrambled eggs is my new favorite thing

* how 'bout them politics, am I right, how wacky (DEAR GOD WHY IS EVERYTHING SO FUCKING TERRIBLE, LIKE JUST AS BAD AS WE FEARED IF NOT WORSE, CHRIST ALMIGHTY)

* and goodnight.
