    I’m all about getting wet. I shower, I swim in the sea, I shower because I swim in the swim, I go for a run in the rain, I have a bath. Reject sapience return to water.

    It snowed and rained and iced yesterday afternoon.

    What is the it referring to in that sentence? Talking about the weather is odd.

    I hoped I would be snowed in, but alas, the temperature rose just high enough above freezing to melt the ice off of the roads.

    I enjoy taking a shower I just resent needing to take a shower. It's like sleeping in that respect.

    I like taking a shower when there's a good showerhead and temperature. The ability to take a bath if I like is a big plus.

    I don't have any of those things in my apartment. I still shower, I just don't like doing it.

    I hate the knowledge of being wet. I love swimming! I enjoy a bath or a hot tub. Splashing in puddles, getting caught in the rain, these are transient joys. But feeling wet, the liminal state of water distinctly on my skin, is a sensory nightmare I've learned to tolerate, the transition between uncomfortable.

    Recognizing those sensitivities as such is part of what clued me into being ~neurodivergent~

    If I could build a house (lol owning a home) I would have the entire bathroom be just one big square room with all tiles floor to ceiling, big drain in the floor and the shower is basically like, one half wall or counter between the rest of the bathroom. So basically the whole bathroom is the shower. The actual shower space would have one of those 360° shower heads that's like a wall of water you stand in.

    Big skylight for natural light whilst showering. Lotta plants. Maybe a big copper claw footed bathtub in a corner for the rare occasions I want a sit down bath.

    Ultimate shower experience.

    I have to have a towel after showering or swimming. Being wet from cycling through the rain is okay for some reason, but wet after being in water? bleagh.

    I like a good air-dry. get a nice sit or lay out in the sun maybe

    if there wasn't so much shame in my frame, I'd do it more often, but I look like the kind of swollen zombie that explodes when you shoot it.

    I've promised to one day build a bathroom with a big deep Japanese soaking tub for my wife and the "wet room" style of bathroom really is the best.

    my friend used to live on a property her parents owned.

    some nouveau riche douche had bought the property, built a ridiculous house, and then ran out of money and sold it at a loss

    the house was an ostentatious nightmare, but it did have an incredible bathroom. all tile, the shower had three heads at different heights because I guess sometimes you want a different spray, and it was like, 10 feet long.

    we fit so many people into that shower

    My dream bathroom includes a cedar chaise lounge next to one of those deeply unsafe open-flame gas wall heaters. I won't even own a towel, just straight from the shower to the drying rack.

    so you know that thing

    that fucking sitcom trope

    "dear sir/madam, you may the beneficiary to the estate of late Mr. X, please provide us with your details so we may proceed", etc. etc.

    anyway that just happened to me

    now the first thing is I think "scam call obviously"

    except the dude is a lawyer who's credentials check out, and he gave me a case file and everything, and from the looks of things it's been going on for six years at least while they're trying to figure out the distant relatives of the person who died

    anyway, this isn't like a million dollars or something, I'm not a Bezos

    but it is about roughly the equivalent of 30,000 US? which ain't nothing

    so my mood right now is finding out I unwittingly wound up in fantasy camp

    to wit, this is a concept from the height of 90s comedy, Seinfeld, in which George and Jerry discuss Kramer:

    "Kramer goes to a fantasy camp. His whole life is a fantasy camp. People should plunk down two thousand dollars to live like him for a week. Do nothing, fall ass-backwards into money, and mooch food off your neighbors; that's a fantasy camp."

    that's me, falling ass-backwards into the scrooge mcduck money pit

    anyway welcome to camp, gather round the fire, can I offer you some smores

    update on this:

    it did happen, though they are parceling out the fund transfers because some of it is involved in realestate development

    but I should get the equivalent of around 4,500 US dollars from great-grand uncle Ebenezer in 2-3 months

    I have some complaints viz fantasy camp but it does what it says on the tin

    i got $10k that way once from a 12-way split of surviving relatives of great-uncle [redacted].

    it felt very nice to a dumb teenager.

    Like, I'm fine, but my tortoiseshell is losing her shit because my partner left on a Thanksgiving trip this morning. Just... hop off my lap, wander around crying. (She also does this when my partner and I are both in the living room, but, y'know, different.)

    One of our cats adores our daughter. When she goes to Grandmas' every Friday he just sits outside her bedroom door waiting for her to open up so he can go to bed with her.

    I've moved to a new house, it's big and having all my stuff here just makes it worse, it feels like when you're dreaming and you're at a place you know intimately and one weird place squished together.

    it is objectively a good thing that we got this house, and it is a good house, I am just not used to it. barring when I'd run away and a brief stint of homelessness, I've lived at the same house for like, 30 years.

    I wanna go home, but I am home.

    so lately two of my cats have been at odds, to the point where we had to like, keep them separate.
    but we moved and we just brought the cats to the new house and are letting them explore and the two who were fighting have been very good to each other

    it helps that one of them is prescribed gabapentin so we just got them high so they'd get used to hanging out again

    mood: hopeful

    edit: he takes gabapentin when needed, and fluoxetine aka Prozac once a day

    it's bothersome but I kinda love that the first cat that was Mine has inherited my neuroses
