my patronus is a basilisk

D brought his high school registration forms home and of course, had already selected a bunch of stuff he can't actually take, because he missed some of the instructions.  At least he managed to bring the forms home. His proper IEP meeting is next week, which is going to determine in several cases which classes he actually takes.

I'm having a breakfast bootstrapping problem: tea and toast is insufficient, but for something better I have to actually cook, which I do not have the energy to do. I am also irritated that the actual meaning implied by pulling yourself up by your bootstraps (which is physically impossible) has become a phrase we use to imply that people should be able to launch themselves with nothing but a little energy. Like how "cut him off without a nickel" has is a nonsensical mutatation from the reality that makes sense,  which is similarly, though less intensely, vexing.

I have entered the phase where I need to Make All the Things for my next show(s), especially since I remembered that at The Make Sale I have a full on 10x10. The replacement laser is here, and will hopefully work out of the box, but isn't set up yet, which I really can't help much with given the state of the ankle, but at the same time I don't want to put to much pressure on S while he is dealing with a bunch of his own stuff.
