Why am I up at 3am? I wish I had a good answer for that. I woke up about half an hour ago and was so rumpled up in my mind that I couldn't go back to sleep. My failing is that I trust people to do what they say they are going to do and then when they don't, I get upset. I was expecting a call from someone and, because they didn't, I'm disappointed and I think that's what's messing with my sleep.

I know it's juvenile to let someone's actions affect me so much but I just don't seem to be able to grow up and get over it. Grown up behaviour in general seems to escape me. That it seems to escape most of the rest of the world, doesn't help either.

Topic switch (or maybe not): This seems to be a bad year for relationships. I have had two people get back in touch with me that I have not talked to in a very long time- I think partly because they are both going through divorces. And then they vanished again. This gives me a couple of huge WTF? I'm beginning to get seriously annoyed at being the person that people call when horrible things happen and ignore when everything is going well. (Although I must not be nearly as much of a bitch as I've been accused of being recently if these people are calling me for comfort and advice when things are bad.)

With practice my edge gilding is getting better- I have discovered that the best cutting edge in the house for gilt is one of my good knives. Kids know this kind of thing instinctively- the 'good silver' serving spoon is always the very best sand shovel. I'm using the bamboo brush from the book repair kit that strangemodegirl generously sent me as a gilder's tip... I should dig in there and see if there is something that might work as a cutting edge too!

I hope that, if I ever get Neil Gaiman to sign this, he doesn't mind that it was an early attempt. I know I will be better with practice.
