I made it. Sweat-drenched and out of breath, but I made it. For the record, I made it partially into vertex 6 before I needed the puffer. But just barely.

And I forgot my preventer again. Rotten night, horrible sleep because Beloved was up late working on their side-job, slept in until ten past five. I'm now late for everything.

And I'm currently out of spoons to chase the kids around.

It's going to be an "interesting" morning.

I also have to chase down the peeps at Chaos' school for the last of her documents. Which is going to be fun, because one of the things the Pediatrician needs is an IQ test. A written test to judge how smart someone is by multiple choice and the occasional essay. And Chaos doesn't do very well with standardised testing. She tests low, but if you interact with her, you know she's smarter than she seems.

Grumble, grumble, pigeon holes, mumble mutter, able-ism, growl gripe bitch whine snarl.

I finally have a kilogram of red cheese wax. Currently in a huge container that would make dripping it onto teeny tiny bottles slightly problematic to say the very least. I suspect I will be using a heated knife to portion off something resembling a stick and going from there.

I'm going to have a lot of fun with this. The sarcastic kind of fun.
