Oh gosh, I keep forgetting that DW is a thing that exists which I have. Such is fandom in the days of tumblr, I guess.

I have exciting news! M and I are going to get married!! There isn't a big romantic ~moment~. We went to the antique market on our 5th year anniversary, found a ring, liked it, told our friends. The lack of backup dancers and fireworks has come as a great disappointment to my aunts. 

Our parents are over the moon--his parents even invited mine for Passover, which went surprisingly okay. My mom is literally a non-stop font of wedding planning chatter. She's up for a visit right now and it will be a goddamn miracle if I manage to get anything done ever again. We went wedding dress shopping last week (found a contender?) and are going again tomorrow after my sister gets in for the weekend. The wedding will be next summer (with what feels like a million guests, jfc) but my mom is moving to the states and might not be able to leave for a year, so apparently everything needs to happen now???? idk. It's fun stuff, I'll roll with it. 

Feels a bit like I am mercilessly deceiving everyone I know into believing I'm an adult. But who am I kidding, I am pretty darn excited for being grossly smitten marrieds.

- I sent the last of my grad school things off at the beginning of the month; now I wait an unspecified length of time to hear back. I think I'll get into one and probably not into the other. I mean, I'll be okay even if I don't get in, but talking to one of my bffs who is doing her master's (canadian history) has made me really miss school. I just don't have enough crunchy academic nonsense in my life rn.

Though M did hear back--his first choice program called him to offer him a place and a bucket of money. And we found out last week that his application for a government research grant has passed some kind of magical signpost on its journey through government bureaucracy and he probably is going to get it (?). Either way it is pretty great and I am obvs super proud.

- Over the past couple of months or so I've gradually been acquiring a group of nerdy hot gay lady friends. YOU GUYS. All of my friends moved away in may and now I have friends again! and I don't have to pretend to be cool or anything and they are into my belligerent weirdo ways. It's great. Friendssss!

- I decided arbitrarily that it was time for me to finally actually watch Legend of the Seeker, two years after its cancellation. This is apparently the year I catch up on all the tv I missed while in school. But anyway, it's delightful and fun without being overly goofy, and the hair/faces/cleavage/abs action is fantastic. things about a show that is four years old )

Anyway--it's great and it's probaby what I will do with my weekend instead of finally finishing my sherlock fic. Because it's been six months, what's another few days? (worst writer, worst life)

- Also knitting! Really the reason I started LotS was because I wanted something to watch while knitting. But I think it's going to consume my brain for a few weeks OH OOPS. I'm finally making a stab at knitting in the round and I have to say, it's confusing as all get out.

- Speaking of stuff to watch: my sister suggested I watch/read Buso Renkin (sp?) because someone gets their heart replaced with magic and that is very relevant to my interests. Does anyone know anything about it? I was thinking of just watching the anime because trying to read manga makes my whole brain cry (I can barely deal with a combination of words and images as it is; when they're laid out the other way I just shut down). Anyway, thoughts?
