More drug nonsense at my mother's house. Father trying to work his computer when it's off, then not being able to find the power button. Falling asleep at a chair. Cooked spaghetti in the coffee maker and coffee grounds dumped down the sink. More spaghetti in the $75 electric water heater I bought him (so he wouldn't burn out any more pans trying to boil water for tea). Coffee urn lid in the sugar bowl. It's funny, in a sick sort of way. At these time I despise him for how selfish he's being.
Dinner with Epalg took my mind off horrible situation for an all-too-brief hour. Epalg looks like Veronica Lake and is a terrific, witty conversationalist.
