Photo Description: A black horse grazing. His front left leg is prosthetic.
The tree beckoned them. Their mittens and boots flew off as they ran in excitedly asking, "Can we decorate your tree!!??!!" Sometimes I think that the exclamation mark and the question mark were invented by parents of young children because I'm not sure that they would be able to speak without them. Our tree is up late this year because of travel and the lights had just been put on and we had not yet started to decorate so their offer was eagerly accepted.

They flew around the tree at speeds that were astonishing to watch. In seconds the tree looked happier. The ornaments were carefully taken out of their boxes and then quickly placed on the perfect branch. That such care and such speed could co-exist is a marvel. At one point Sadie pulled out an ornament of the winged horse Pegasus, and cried out, "His leg is broken off!"

She held it up to Joe to look at. Joe looked at the ornament and said, "Sadie, he's not broken, he's just disabled."

"Like Dave," she said, then thought further, "Dave's not broken."

The ornament went on the tree.

1. Day off tomorrow! I don't have a lot planned so I'm just looking forward to relaxing.

2. We went up to this reeeeally tasty roast beef place tonight called Top Round. They also have really tasty ice cream.

3. I got a payment for some translation that I'd totally forgotten about. When I do stuff for [personal profile] kiwimusume's boss, he doesn't pay until the end of the month after the work is completed, so it's easy to forget, especially like this time when it wasn't that much money. But it was still an extra $65 I wasn't expecting, so that was nice!

4. Got another sweet kitten pic.

Getting in on this late but prompt me things to talk about and I'll endeavor to actually use my journal in December. [Note from Deuce: Easy free topics would be things like 'tell me some things you have done and not posted about', what do you think of -- Jessica Jones, Supergirl, Killjoys, Mr. Robot, the Justified finale, the Parks & Rec finale, Breaking Bad, the random episodes of Glee you have watched, the Washington Capitals, the Virginia Cavaliers, Hamilton, headcanons or ficlets for fandoms I used to write about when I wrote more fanfic -- or books, comics, food, music etc -- link me to a song you like or hate so I can listen to it and tell you what I think basically ANYTHING that's been happening that you would like my take on as long as it's not current politics or world events because I do my best to avoid those things in this space).

OK, got it? Now here's the rest of the meme:

Pick a date below and give me a topic and I'll ramble on. I'm good at talking. can be anything from fandom related (specific characters, actors, storylines, episodes, etc) to life related to pizza preferences to whatever you want.

They will probably be brief, or not, depending on the subject.

Also, I reserve the right to decline prompts that I don't feel equipped to meet.
