Whine! [3 Lage 4261]
When I rule Choinxeia as tyrant lizard with a forepaw of iron, I will proclaim the Third of Lage to be "Complain to the Zi Ri About Unanswerable Matters" day. Of course, it's not quite clear who would dare to complain to the tyrant lizard ruling them with a forepaw of iron, but I suppose some other Zi Ri might get quite an earful now and then.
Anoof is now living with one of his fiances and three other Cani. Anoof managed to lose the choof on organizing the apartment. (I gather the contest involved Anoof and the roomate setting up cleaning schedules and seeing which was the most popular with the other roommates. Nobody but Anoof liked Anoof's.) Which means of course that it is hideously messy and dirty and dingy and grungy and disgusting and mold-enslimed and filled with layers and layers of pestilential stinking rotten fruit husks after only a few weeks. Or, at least, that it wasn't up to Anoof's standards. He complained greatly to me about these matters. I declined to show him my new bedroom, which is messy dirty dingy grungy disgusting mold-enslimed and filled with layers and layers of pestilential stinking rotten chub-beetle carapaces after only a few weeks. Or, at least, isn't up to Anoof's stardards. Despite Jarmiet tidying it up every three days.
Agrimony complained to me about how much living with Dustweed is displeasing to him, not because zie is a both-female but because ... it's wrong. Also zie's traff. I had no great advise or response to him. Saying, "I'm traff, too" seemed too overwhelming to contemplate. And probably wouldn't have helped, except to get Agrimony complaining to other people about both of us.
Jarmiet, who you think would never complain to anyone about anything, complained to me that she couldn't get pregnant despite lots of trying. ("I've been trying ever so hard with Ilottat and haven't managed it either," I didn't say.) This is getting to be a serious issue in her family. They had one litter without her, and they are trying for another litter, and she's all embarrassed and upset and stuff. I expressed a great deal of sympathy. I didn't provide her with a ritual spell of fertility, since, well, I don't have one, and don't have that much influence with anyone who does.
Leiska briefly complained about Anoof challenging someone else to a duel again. "Since he got skewered last time, especially." I didn't get the details -- Leiska was walking one way down a street I was flying the other way down. Probably one of his roommates.
Thelvion complained about something too tedious to record, involving clothing that was stored in a box for too long.
Vingi complained ... no. Vingi never complains. Vingi was determinedly cheerful about Real-Eel breaking up with him. Again I could get few details, but I collected Dustweed, Ghirbis, and Strenata, and we will take him out to dinner for soup, sloop, and sympathy. (Strenata offered to bring Rhedwy for soup, sloop, Sleeth, and sympathy, but we persuaded her that the Sleeth would pretty much negate the sympathy.) More when I know more.
Sythyry finally got the courage to talk to Levande for complaining about countly and suchly matters, but of course she's in her country estate and not due back for a bit. Zie left zir card and a polite request.
