The Desert Assassin has a new game today. It’s basically some light but here’s how it works: There is some sort of cursed object in my dwelling, placed there by a witch who is testing me to see how fast I can find it.

It’s kind of a princess and the pea situation but with KRYPTONITE, and the only way I can solve this is to CAST THINGS OUT OF MY SPACE that might be the object.

I will know what is a likely suspect either because it does not spark joy or enhance my feeling of embodied queenly badass everything, or it is a clear and obvious placeholder for something that actually is yes

while I am doing this of course I will also be gathering useful intel about what the desert assassin likes and does not like

And we will begin with vacuuming (the Rollsuck Supreme!) because Gleaming Leads To Clarity, and also it will force me to get things off the floor

(Anyone is welcome to play along with me, or alter the game or rename as you see fit, because People Vary, and we all need different things of course)

Realized there were other things that needed Gleaming Surfaces before the floor surfaces, so I washed and lovingly polished some labyrinth rocks and now am going to do the same to a Havi (aka a shower) and then the floor!

I am gleaming and I am GLEAMING: shower erledigt, RGW (Replenishing Glass of Water) replenished, sheet mask on because yes, I sheet mask while vacuuming.

I do not know how anyone vacuums without a playlist, it also helps that I am in the middle of nowhere without nearby neighbors so I can blast music

It is on and off drizzling outside and cheery inside, good day for Gleaming

It has taken MANY dance party breaks but the main space is all gleamed (will leave the loft for tomorrow) and have some clues

ideas re the cursed object that the witch left as a test: + I have beautiful lamps from the last time I lived somewhere and it was a long time ago, and these lamps make no sense here but I also don’t want to not-have them but [etc], maybe I put them in a box for New Mexico

+ my plants are placeholders for [REMEMBER! You want to have so many plants! Once you come back from the long trip!] but actually this one was a gift from someone I’m mad at and another one reminds me of someone else I do not like right now

(Very real worry that if I don’t have plants I will forget entirely about the existence of plants in general since i am the most out of sight out of mind person that has ever lived)
