Total failure

I bummed out on that challenge didn’t I?

Well. It was fun while it lasted and I don’t mind too much that I lost track of it at the end.

To conclude, I’ll leave you with Bear’s funnies from last night:

Bear is shivering under three blankets on cold sheets. I’m shifting them to rub his back. He’s barely gotten any sleep the previous two nights and I desperately want him to get good sleep despite the early hour.

“Emmy, I’m cold.”

“I know. You’ll warm up quick. Just wait a minute.”

“Make them stop?”

“Make who stop?”

“The antimatter. Make them stop.” Bear’s eyes close.

“Antimatter? Stop doing what?”

“Two balls of antimatter…” Bear’s breathing gets heavy.


“…are sucking up all the heat.” Bear snores.

I laugh so hard he wakes up a tiny bit and mumbles at me. I pet his head until he drifts off again.

Bear gave me the video, which is just ADORABLE. But I love the song too.

A timeline to interrupt the regularly scheduled programming

So last night Bear had to work late. At 9pm, I was going to head over to his office (about 1 mile from my lab) and keep him company. The idea was that we’d probably be there until 11pm.

At 10pm I was still outside his office and getting a little upset because Bear still hadn’t come downstairs or answered his phone. I was sitting in the car and had my book though, so I wasn’t too upset. Finally at 10:15 he finally picked up the phone. He was outside my lab.

According to Bear he wandered around outside his building for 45 minutes before freaking out that something had happened to me and getting a taxi to take him to my lab. Then he wandered around outside my lab, found a security guard who walked him around for a while until I finally got him on the phone. I finally picked him up back at my lab. He had been wandering around outside WITHOUT A JACKET. It was in the high 30s at that time last night. I firmly believe that’s what led to his complete meltdown thinking that I had been accosted between my office and his.

So at 11 (after a detour to the freeway because I was completely discombobulated), we are finally back outside Bear’s office and we head up for him to do his work. At 12:30, I got a little tired. At 1am, I got cranky. At 1:30, Bear sent me to nap on the couch. At 2:30, we finally left.

At 8:30am, Bear got up.

At 9:30am, I turned off the alarm and rolled back over.

At 10am I woke up.

At 11am, I went to the grocery store

At noon, I realized that ALLLL of my coupons expired yesterday.

Music MONDAY!!!

This song was actually given to me by Bear. I cannot believe that he gave me this song. This type of music is my wheelhouse but kinda anathema to him.

Anyways. Enjoy.

Oh! Also I kinda love the name, “Chocolate Genius”. So bizarre and perfect.
