Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

It’s 2/24/24!!!  Haha!! All the 2s and 4s!!!

Well…  today was Saturday.  Not a whole lot going on.  I played the concerto for the girls today.  It’s not the easiest thing with no orchestral part, but I guess it works out – they still thought it was really pretty.  I think it is too.  And pretty difficult, too.  Miki had the day off, so she was on a video call and listened too.

It’s funny how impressed they get.  Even Miki.  She’s a professional idol.  She’s been in front of 20,000 people, or more.  So has Yuki.  And both of them still seem to think I run rings around them.

Maybe I do?  Maybe we just measure success differently.  Maybe they have the right of it.  And, well, maybe not.

Later in the day we all went to help Anathema move.  She’d already boxed up all of the stuff that she didn’t want us to see (what, you expected her to just throw out all of her expensive costumes?)  and we helped pack up the rest of it.  Joe was around to make sure no one tried to mess with her while she was moving, and enlisted a few of his coworkers to make sure no one followed her to the new place.  She has a lot of stuff but it was pretty easy to box up, so it all worked out.  I guess she’s got the apartment for a little longer, anyway, but she’s not going to live in it anymore.

I don’t blame her.

It’s kinda sad.  I mean, it’s true, in a sense she brought it on herself by carrying on, but some people just take it way, way too far.

I do think she turned over a new leaf.  I really do.  But, at the end of the day, she’s still Anathema, and a little bit of cat-girl, and that will always be the case.  You don’t stop being you when you change, you just be a better you.  I guess.

She’s got a better security system at her new place than the shop, and, well…  I think it’s really necessary.  Unfortunately.

Anyway, Diana found a game at the drugstore called RoundRock-opoly, so we’re going to play it now.  I wonder who gets Dell Diamond?

Love you all!!! ❤️

From the creator:

I think I figured out today, why I started Lily, and why I still write her.

But I’ll tell you some other time.
