Got done up in jade & lace to step out and have a crystal glassful of pomegranate seeds & kir royal in the company of firework-flustered birds. Thin mist thickening with smoke then attenuating again.

Further evidence for the utility of lipstick in shedding past visual association with Christ.

A pumpkin's dropped anchor in a turbulent bit of the big creek again. Twice makes it a tradition. It's just not winter 'til we've seen a gourd getting gently jostled by the current.

Dreamt of trying to install a music app, Orca, on the wooden cellphone of a friend newly returned from courting a distant princess. Ran into intractable issues because her phone wasn't "problossom"-compatible or "Linwood+". An elf's mundane frustration-dream delivered to me by mistake.
