Breakfast with partner and metamour Leopard Girl.

Seanan McGuire event in Silverdale. We brought tribute, and were briefly Seanan's favorite. (Diet Dr Pepper and candy corn. Seanan is a being of predictable tastes.)

Mini muffin tin quest!

Partner made a note they should chat with our mutual friend in London about stuff. Hooray, viable communities.

Dinner for the extended polycule, with many dishes thanks to Trader Joe's. (Rice, orange chicken with extra zesty sauce but no carrots since we ran out, BBQ pork buns, pot stickers, spring rolls, and green beans. The rice and green beans weren't pre-packaged, and I do a little customization to the chicken by adding orange peel and scallions. The gyoza and bao steam over the rice, and the spring rolls could bake with the chicken. The green beans start frozen and get gently fried with seasonings. Usually it's butter and Montreal steak seasoning, but Stray Puppy Girl is very lactose intolerant, and Leopard Girl dislikes red pepper. So I went for sesame oil, garlic, onion, pepper, salt, ginger, a packet of soy sauce that needed using, and the excess teriyaki sauce from the other night. It turned out well. To my immense gratification, my partner really likes all the iterations of the green beans that I have made so far. Generally they disappear immediately.)

Club night. Without going into excessive detail, one of the groups near the people I was with were having a hilarious time, and kept setting each other off giggling. That prompted our group to giggle. The glee was infectious.

Everyone is spending the night. We hauled the camping pads out of the alleged guest room (it is currently not in a state for guests as my textiles have exploded all over it) and they're set up next to the futon in case it turns from cozy to crowded in the middle of the night. Things are well set up for breakfast, and there should be cheesecake at some point (thus the mini muffin tins).

Problems in college-land.

Great, I knew I would ram into a problem sooner than later. The issue is taking classes outside my main strength. In this case I'm taking a class in Business Management (365) on Leadership. So far on the first two discussions I have spent about 4 hours writing each and have gotten grades of 74% and 43% respectively with the feedback of:

Chris, your posts demonstrate thoughtfulness, however, they do not reflect that you have read the material and/or understood the information in order to make reference to the assigned material.  It is important that your initial post has citations included from the weekly class  reading material.

It is important to insert citations from the assigned weekly reading material. Your leadership knowledge is appreciated, however, the major way the instructor knows that you are reading the material and understanding it, is by your ability to use it in the posts.

Great. So what I need to do here apparently is parrot bits of the reading material and answer the questions with pat answers, not detailed synthesis. I think I'll let week 3 go for now (why bother, it's been submitted) and work on something else.

Crap-cakes. Fine though, two can play at this game. I'll just cite every work and make my responses a fucking quote-fest.

Per fmobserver.com/trump-to-use-lgbtq-to-make-america-great-again , LGBTQ now stands for Laser Guided Bomb Testing Quadrants. Y'know, just in case you thought you might be entitled to your own identity, or something.

It turns out that Newsies (musical version) just recently hit Netflix.

It also turns out that Newsies is perfect for a Labor Day weekend date night in. Given that it's a strike and all...

Dinner was pizza, plus carrots and hummus with olives. Our timing was a touch off, as we came back from our food-finding mission one big dance number before Act 2.

It is so nice to watch something with a love story in the company of a partner. This is uncharted territory for me.
