notes from a weekend walk

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

The backstory: the local state park has three mountains in it, or at least there are three things that are called mountains. [Note: this led me to a fascinating look at the difference between hills and mountains, which is far more vague than I expected. None of these three land-forms are higher than 2000 feet, […]

umm…

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Gosh, it sure is Monday today. Would you look at that. Who would have thought. some more random thoughts for the day: *If your workplace is giving you July 4th off (Tuesday) but not the 3rd, today’s a great day to start complaining about it, if you haven’t already. *How did I not notice that […]

I was charmed and intrigued by the google doodle for Oskar Fischinger this week. Oskar Fischinger’s 117th Birthday Very fun to play with, plus I always enjoy learning more about the backstory behind the doodles. “I feel incredibly proud of my family and am delighted to be the daughter of Oskar and Elfriede Fischinger. It […]

happy caturday!

Question of the day: why sleep on just one blanket when you could sleep on a whole pile of blankets?

fic rec Friday

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Between Stimulus and Response (There Is A Space), by blackidyll My first thought after I finished reading this fic was ‘I enjoyed that so much more than I thought I would!’ Plus, cats! (PS the cats are briefly in danger but are totally okay!) “What the hell.” It’s not a question, but Q figures the […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Last night I dreamed about tidying, and also my plants. I mean, my dream!plants were pretty neat, but it turns out dream!me also is bad at watering properly. That’s got nothing to do with work, but it *is* Thursday, and I *am* going to work, and I didn’t feel like I had much else to […]

distracted by Power Rangers

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

No work thoughts right now, still trying to figure out the Power Rangers movie. Here’s what’s tripping me up: there were other spaceships. (Okay, I’m only guessing they were space-flight-capable. But it seems like a safe guess.) When Zordon does his flashback explanation, multiple ships fly overhead. So who were they? Not Zordon’s team. They […]

summer sleeping

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Summer sleeping is so different than winter sleeping. In the winter it’s all layers and blankets and socks and having a warm cocoon till morning, then turning on all the lights to make it seem like daytime even when it’s still dark out. Summer sleeping is one blanket and no socks and sticking my feet […]

movie re-watch: Power Rangers 2017

Monday, June 19th, 2017

1. This movie was approximately 10 million times better when I could fast-forward over the parts I didn’t want to see (both car crashes, most of Rita’s scenes). 2. I tend to watch everything with closed captioning on, because reading is easier than listening for me. (Also the sound quality on my laptop is not […]

what is weather

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Okay, so last summer was all about the drought, and I think I over-adapted to drought conditions, because I am still seriously confused by what to do with all this humidity. Me: “It’s 68F degrees, a beautiful cool morning!” Also me: “…And yet I’m sweating and every time I move I feel like I need […]
