adventure Friday!

Friday, April 29th, 2016

I planned this day off a while back with the intention of using it to get my snow tires switched for my summer tires. That would have been a practical use of the day, and yet it’s not what I’m doing. Instead, I will be adventuring into a morning of shopping! At the very least, […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Ah, work. I’m taking a vacation day tomorrow, so I’m feeling unusually mellow about work drama today. It is what it is. (Also, we found out yesterday that the CEO is going to be “job shadowing” someone on the team for two hours in June, and it’s not going to be me, so — celebration […]

mouseketeer updates

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

1. Called my landlord Sunday night (got voicemail, as expected). Tried not to sound freaked out. Probably sounded freaked out. 2. Took down bird feeders. While these almost certainly are what attracted the critter in the first place, still felt bad when the cardinal landed on my balcony railing this morning and looked at me […]

movie review: Attack the Block

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Well, I went into it relatively prepared for the massive amounts of gore and death (thanks, wikipedia and!). Other than that, I thought it was pretty good! (I get that the gore and death was part of the movie’s aesthetic, or whatever, but it’s not my jam.) The interesting thing to me was how […]

memorable search Monday

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Another week of searching the internet for the answers to all of life’s little mysteries. 1. “egregious definition” 2. “do birds eat wasps” 3. “how long is attack the block” 4. “are mice nocturnal” 5. “do mice eat thistle seed”

not exactly the mouseketeers

Sunday, April 24th, 2016

Pretty sure there was a mouse in the wall last night. At first I thought it was out on the balcony, because at 4:30 in the morning I really, really wanted it to be anywhere except inside. But whether it started outside or inside, I’m 99% sure it was in the wall by the time […]

it is not Christmas

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Dear Neighbor, It is *April 23rd.* The four month anniversary of you putting up a Christmas wreath on your door has come and gone. Why is it still there? Is it stuck? Could you maybe add some shells, or a bright colored ribbon, or something, if that is the case? On the other hand, in […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Despite watching less than a season’s worth of episodes of Leverage, it remains one of my fanfic and fandom favorites. (To be fair, ‘less than a season’s worth’ is still significantly more episodes than I’ve seen for many shows I’ve read fanfic for.) And so: A Time to Build, by Vera (Vera_DragonMuse) “We talking about […]

sunshine=warm, right?

Springtime Reminder, because apparently I forget this every year: Just because it will be 70F degrees at some point today does not mean it is 70 now. And now I will ignore that reminder and go open a window!
