Music:Belle is shuffling around in her crate - she's awake, I gues
Dear Eddie Izzard: Please have my strangely-accented, bizzarely-dressed babies.
The house is empty. Being the only human in a huge house is very different from being the only human in a small apartment - mainly because inexplicable apartment noise is generally caused by other residents, and inexplicable house noise is generally caused by axe-weilding psychotic murderers outside the door and velociraptors in the kitchen. ... Or maybe the house is 'settling'. Yeah. I love how the very first night my family is gone, I immediately stay up all night long piddling about on the computer. I decided to at least stay awake 'til daylight so I could let the puppy outside to run around a bit. I'm not even getting anything that could be called 'work' done - no homework, despite two tests this coming Friday that should worry me a lot and another test on the 28th that should worry me even more. Just reading through Bruno. I hate the strip, because I sympathize with the main character's whining far too often for my own liking, and most of the time I just want to slap her face and yell at her to quit crying and shut up already, or ask her friends why the fuck they haven't all tried to push her off the roof of a skyscraper, or at least ditched her pathetic ass. But I keep reading. Dammit.
I think one of the more telling - if not entirely accurate - tests of friendship lies in the question "would you allow [friend] to dress you?"
It's weird having two characters in love. I think I've heard crotalus_atrox refer to the ways characters manifest themselves as "creative schizophrenia" (I just tried four times to include a > after that last ". I am a sad, sad human). It can be a lot like renting out brainspace to strangers. And while I've had a number of characters in love, sometimes with each other, I've never had two that were completely in love, had a good relationship, and were both mine (Chris and Jael had Kaen and Divad, respectively, but both guys were Michael's characters and I still don't know them very well) all at once. It's a little strange to have a constant, lingering bit of romantic love-euphoria lurking at all times in the back of one's mind when one is not in anything resembling a relationship. It only appeared recently because one of them is new - and very unexpectedly clicked perfectly with an established character. I'd be nauseous all the time if they weren't so damned cute.
