House Rule

The Rule in our house, for decades, has been that the person who does the cooking does NOT do the cleaning.

The addendum to that Rule has been, for decades, that if we're having gaming that night, then the GM does NOT do either the cooking or the cleaning, because the GM is already contributing a lot of work.


Apparently the above Rule has an exception: when I do the GMing, I still might have to feed myself, and I certainly must do after-session cleanup. When I cook, no one else is going to take responsibility for cleanup that night.

This is bullshit.

I have pointed out that this is bullshit. When I stop talking, everyone else in the family goes right back to whatever they were doing.

You know, if I were living alone, I would be in a much smaller place. Probably a townhouse or condo. I would have to do ALL the work but I would only be working to support myself and maybe a cat. (Probably not a cat any more. I probably would have never gotten over Delia and Marco.) I would not be happy but I would also not feel like I do not register in my own home.

Okay then.

I do not really know what I am going to do with this journal.

I dropped down to zero on LJ because of the way chemotherapy messed up my brain. I had a short period of recovery in late summer and early fall of 2012 but things got worse again after that, and added some depression on top of it all.

I am hoping that the spur of the LJ legal thing, which is making me pay focused attention to my online journal, will be enough reason for me to start USING an online journal again.

There's going to be random chunks of my fic. Probably none of you nice folks wandering by will be interested. I'm not going to explain the characters or the context, I'm just going to put it up here to prod me

How do Dreamwidth folks handle trigger warnings? Should I just say "if triggers, please see post tags" and put everything under a cut? 

Tell you what: I'll do that, until I have time to read the entire FAQ. It's a well-written FAQ, I'm merely jumping around like a catgirl on sugar. When my attention settles, I will probably fall asleep. 

I am on the fence about whether I should get a WattPad account, post my fic there, and link it here. I mean. They do have a "superhero" subsection in "Action", that's good. But. I have distressingly little actually whole fic. And of those, most are still in need of major edits. And I, who get so frustrated at abandonfic, abandon an awful lot of my own stuff before it gets to the good bits. 

I dunno. Maybe that would be one thing too many for the current load. Let's see how I do on DW first.
