λ: Oh, I'm mad at the allergy fairy. She gave me lots of allergies and I did not want them.
KYLIE: Not many people want them, I think.
λ: But she is not fair. Some people do not get any allergies at all, and some people get lots and lots.
KYLIE: Maybe the allergy fairy is a drunkard. She weaves in the air when she is flying and so lots of allergies fall out of her basket in some places and then none at all in others.
λ: I think that makes lots of sense.
KYLIE AND λ: ::pause::
KYLIE AND λ: ::burst out laughing::*

My poor girl is sick, though, and not just with allergies. We went to a Chinese place in Harvard Square for lunch, and the fried rice tasted amazing and then made both of us very sick. I threw it up and felt better, because I throw up all the time, thanks to medications. But λ doesn't throw up, apparently, and so she is still miserable. I went out to get her Pepto-Bismol and came back with saltines, Diet Coke, chicken soup, white bread for cinnamon toast, and popsicles... and no Pepto-Bismol. I am really not very good at this life thing at all.

Oh well.

Breaking etymologico-grammatical** debate, here: when you say "lots", what kind of lots does that mean? λ said I was writing lots, and I said I wasn't writing that many lots, and she said that only makes sense if you are talking about auctions or property, and I said, well, what kind of lots are they if they aren't those kind of lots? It's a strange word. I want to know more about it.

But maybe I should write fewer lots.

A lot*** has been going on, actually, but it's kind of strange and will take a long time to write about, so I think I'll leave it for tomorrow morning. But... hmm. Life is an interesting thing, sometimes.

I go forth to the land of Nod.****

*Any time you guys want to stop hearing about pointless bits of girlfriend dialogue, you know, feel free to give me a shout.1
**I like making up words. ::defiantly:: Lots. But if you are really really going to insist, I suppose you can pretend that says etymological/grammatical. I mean, if you are boring and whatnot.
***See? You can have one lot! And it is in the same sense as the lots referenced above! I win.
****That does mean the land of sleep, right? My juvenile literary references get confused when I am tired and still a little bit sick.

a comment that has nothing to do with lots, girlfriends, or the land of Nod.

I just recently discovered your journal, which is quite amusing. But more amusing and useful is you fantastic list o' lesbian books that you've compiled. Through that page I've discovered Sylvia Brownrigg, Stacey D'Erasmo, and perhaps one of my new favorite authors, Carol Anshaw. I also hadn't realized that Emma Donoghue had come out with a new book, so I have you to thank for that revelation as well.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that you have excellent taste and I appreciate that you took the time to provide your advice for others who enjoy lesbianish literature. Thanks again!

eeee! That's so exciting! I haven't updated that webpage in forever, which kind of makes me sad when I stop to think about it. But it's rare that I hear of someone who found it to be really useful or helpful, so this comment made me all squeeish! Thanks. :)
