Finished Buffy Season 2 yesterday with Lisa. The final episode of the season had me bawling. It isn't the sending-Angel-to-hell stuff that gets to me; it's the all-alone stuff. Kicked out of the house, kicked out of school, nowhere to go. I don't know why that hits me so hard when I've never really felt that way in my own life.

Today I finished reading Queen of the Darkness, which also made me cry. I wouldn't call the Black Jewels trilogy great literature, but the characters were interesting and the story was absorbing. I frequently had to force myself to put the book down when I didn't want to. I liked it enough that I will probably read it more than once.

Did a bunch of financial stuff today. Shannon finished our taxes, we made some stock purchases, and I got the forms for our living trust filled out and faxed. It's nice to get things done.

The past couple of days, we've had hot weather. High 70s, maybe as high as 80. Hot weather always makes me crave salad, so Shannon and I went to Cafe Intermezzo for dinner tonight. I purchased a salad as big as my head, more than half of which currently resides in our fridge.

I need to call the doctor tomorrow, because I have a lump on the inside of my bottom lip. It's been slowly growing for about six months, but for a long time I thought I had just bitten the inside of my lip and had caused a bump that would go away. Well, it never went away, and now it's almost the size of a pea. Time to go see somebody about it. Quoth Shannon, "Well, I've never heard of lip cancer." I'm not really worried. We'll see what the doc has to say.
