For Thanksgiving it was either a picture of my shoe or a picture of me looking sad. It turned out to be a good day, but it didn't start off too well. The plans I had with my brother fell through, I didn't hear back from some people I tried to connect with, and I had a mild hangover from the previous night out. But then I went out to Cory's family's house, where I not only got to meet his family but had some yummy pie and played games for a little while. And then after the family thing, Cory and I had a private music-listening party. He played me Tool's Lateralus and I played him The Mountain Goats' The Sunset Tree. It eventually did turn into a pretty darn good day.
I am a teacher, grad student, writer, voracious reader, photographer, singer, feminist, and thriftstore fashionista. In no particular order.
I am Squirlaraptor. This name was originally created for my kitty to reflect her squirrel-like fur and her raptor attack skills and has recently been adopted by me to reflect my own curious nature and tendency to hoard as well as my (sometime) fierceness and my love of the hunt (at least, in terms of shopping and research--not so much in terms of killing and maiming, vegetarian that I am).
