OTOH the basic Dahl that the ginger and cilantro contributed to was excellent.
In other news the dog got bath today. Pretty! Soft!

George and I both knew something had gone wrong with us; that was obvious, since what we felt for each other was so far outside the norm that the norm was barely a speck in the distance. What I couldn't see was how it would've been any different if we were blood siblings. If we were really twins, the way we frequently let people assume we are, how could that possibly make it feel less like she's part of me?
Set seven years before Feed.
This story stands on its own, but it's set some weeks after "We Dreamed a Garden" (Georgia's POV, in which she and Shaun experiment by going to junior prom with other people, don't like it much, admit their feelings for each other, and spend half the night fooling around about as thoroughly as you can without getting naked).

1. Twice in the last 2 weeks, I have been accused by coworkers of having no sense of humor. The first was a case of the guy sitting beside me answering the questions I was asking a customer, because distracting coworker's while they're trying to work is funny, I guess. (This is one of those people who thinks making semi-obnoxious but largely harmless comments at random-usually directed towards someone doing something else-is the pinnacle of humor and must be acknowledged, but he's usually less intrusive about it.) The second was yesterday at lunch, when a coworker asked if I'd seen a plant pollen joke, then saying she'd show me and shoving her phone at me. It was a lolcat type thing with a joke along the lines of "if plants emit pollen that we inhale without knowing it, are plants raping us every day?" I made a noncommittal noise (keep in mind, I had food in my mouth) and when she pressed me, I commented that I didn't find things that used rape as the punchline to be funny. She appeared to find that offensive and said i couldn't take a joke.
2. i was going to sign up for flight rising, but I missed the window. If anyone plays Hay Day, though, I've been playing it way too much lately.
3. By which I mean to say that I've been neglecting reading, wiscon media binging and RareWomen fic for it. Whoops?
4 Both the sageuk and wuxia panels are short one member, but will hopefully make the cut. (As has been mentioned elsewhere, the lineups as they currently stand should be about like a live version of DW comment threads. Possibly along the lines of oyceter and I almost turning the Anime/Manga 101 panel last year into randomly throwing out various Kaori Yuki plotlines.) I also volunteered for the Lit in Anime and Manga panel, so we'll see on that one. MUst get other wuxia panelists to read Legend of the White-Haired Demoness before the con, though.
5. Make all the "Zombie Jesus" jokes you want, you know you love Easter for the cheap candy that'll be everywhere on Monday.
