Chaos Attraction

Merry Kwanzaa!

2019-11-20, 10:03 p.m.

Today I showed the 2nd in command a box of dicks and then later we talked about duck rape! That’s all I have to say about work today!


The most memorable bit of the night for me was overhearing Scott say, when William made some reference about “your lady:” “I have no lady. Not yet, anyway.”

This was my reaction:

I don’t know where that came from out of the fucking blue, but that’s about as hopeful as I’ve ever heard him be on that topic since the night of July 30 when he was basically all never ever ever about it. You know damn well he knows I heard it and wrote it down...but then, of course, Cameron was also in the room for that one and make of that what you will.

In other news, I said the f-bomb in front of small children again and nobody cared or even noticed. The third Scott in this company that I never worked with who did the photos brought them in and I look lovely in mine. It’s very cute.

I am working on my yarn newsletter, the Thanksgiving edition, and I dug up my old turkey hat to photograph it earlier in the day. I decided to bring it to rehearsal to show Germaine.

In kiss scene news, Cameron is now wearing high heels for it, which seems to make her as tall as me (without heels). I always think she’s taller than me, somehow. And Scott the photographer asked if they were married...but I guess he just meant the characters. Uh-huh.
