Also helping : gay vampires. Whilst in Cambridge I accidentally looked at a bookshelf in a charity shop and immediately seized on one book, which we bought, as it turns out to be about gay vampires and a bisexual business lawyer. I am very happy about this.
And thank you so much to everyone who has been so lovely about my birthday and that. (I found a picture of the doll in a black wig; the resemblance to Mr. Jansen is frankly uncanny. Oh god dolls.) I am very very very grateful.
Today : work, and lunch with asrana. Tomorrow : cupcakes with clockworkwasp. I'm sure everything is going to be all right.
