I’m wiped out, you guys. I apologize. I spent last week pretending that I wasn’t sick, then the weekend was The Boy’s birthday. We went, shockingly enough, to Akihabara. The Boy wanted to go to the Gundam Cafe (giant robots, you guys. They’re multi-generational.)
Well, we went, but it seems that so did half of Tokyo. There was some kind of Pokemon Go thing happening as well, and it was a holiday weekend, and there was a sale at the infamous Yodobashi Camera, and basically, it was a perfect storm of overstimulation and Thoe Boy made it clear that he was Done.
Honestly? So were the rest of us.
We never made it to dinner and we spent the rest of the holiday weekend crashed out on the sofa watching tv and not really moving much. I kinda did the same again today, and still feel fairly drained. I’ve been doing some revisions, and I made dinner, and that’s about it, so no acceptably geeky or writerly post today. If you are really jonesing for something new to read, there’s a short story posted for Patrons! Otherwise, I beg your pardon and your patience, and I promise to do better by you next week.
