I'm starting to think there's been a miscalculation. On the one hand, I'm having fun, but on the other hand there's a lot to value in my day to day routine that is getting shoved around a great deal, or left out all together. Also, I'm starting to feel a little physically worn out. We're going to Oh! You Pretty Things tomorrow night, which is a last minute addition to our schedule. During the week M is coming to the neighborhood for some help putting together her next DOV outfit, but otherwise I think I need to slow down a bit, and maybe focus on quieter events, like the steampunk picnic [livejournal.com profile] chelseagirl47 and I are working on. Everything feels somewhat frenetic, even frantic. While there's sometimes something exhilarating about that sort of energy, it feel right now like there's just too much of that - even book group felt a little frenetic.

Speaking of the steampunk picnics, what do people think about the idea of suggesting that people bring related things to read aloud? Not making a requirement of it, of course, but putting the idea out there as a way of ensuring at least some focus *on* steampunk, aside from our fabulous, fabulous clothes.:) The only sort of outdoor appropriate activity I can think of otherwise that could possibly fit the period, if not the "steam" aspect would be croquet, and I don't know anyone who has a set.

Book group was way more frenetic than usual yesterday; it's rare that we have quite so many cross-conversations going on during the book discussion portion. I put it down to a number of different factors that just happened to converge all at once. Hey, I felt bad that I wasn't staying or returning to party later on, but I am y'all's token old lady friend -- I can only summon that kind of energy on occasion, not on a regular basis. But am looking forward to DoV at the end of next month -- you guys just have to help me figure out what to wear . . .

Steampunk readings - yes! A great idea. And yeah, croquet is so appropriate, but even if I could wrestle down the set from my parents' house, I'd have no place to keep it here. Um, badminton? Emailing you about the picnic later, when I've had a chance to research the site more.

We didn't stay long either, Miriam's friends arrived, and they all left to do something and go to the burlesque show. We went home and had a nap!

I'm glad you like the idea of readings!
