another post about cats and tv

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

I get worried about the cat being bored in the winter. There’s just not as much that’s fun for him to do. (Not that he’s running marathons in the summer or anything, but looking out the window is more exciting when there’s a bunch of baby skunks out there than when it’s just a frost-covered […]

meeting Monday

Monday, January 30th, 2017

Big meeting today! (Big, not necessarily important. Always hard to tell with these things.) Good news: It’s not happening in the middle of a snowstorm! (That was 2015.) Neutral news: We are (probably) not going to get free sweatpants this year! (That was 2016 — they’re actually pretty comfy, but were not a popular giveaway […]

Watched a few episodes of the Mary Tyler Moore show last night! AND learned fun facts about it! Mental Floss: 15 Awfully Big Facts About ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ Love this one: 3. THE MTM KITTEN WAS FOUND IN A MINNEAPOLIS SHELTER. It was Grant Tinker’s (Moore’s then-husband) idea to name their new production […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, January 27th, 2017

Went looking for something fluffy to post for the day, fell into re-reading Inception fic from my pinboard bookmarks. Awww….

must be Thursday

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

Me (staring at computer screen): ‘It’s been 40 minutes and I still haven’t thought of anything to write.’ Me (checks calendar): ‘Ah, it’s Thursday. That explains it.’ What is it about Thursdays? Consistently the day I have nothing good to say, and so my brain blanks on saying anything at all. Luckily it turns out […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

It’s review season! (Again!) Every year, my workplace has us all fill out a self-evaluation, which is the starting point for an extremely opaque and generally frustrating process in which you may or may not get a raise. The kerfluffle so far this year is that the schedule for reviews was sent out with a […]

shoulda googled that

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

I have a somewhat unfortunate tendency to take a guess at what internet abbreviations mean and then never follow up to verify. (see: my ftw fail) Which is to say, I thought ‘smh’ stood for ‘so much hate.’ (Note: there *does* seem to be some support for this being the case, or at least having […]

movie review: Hidden Figures

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

I liked it! It has been a long time since I saw a movie in a theater that wasn’t an action movie. I can’t actually remember how long? LONG. But ‘Hidden Figures’ was awesome! Very engaging, lots of like-able characters, good music, didn’t feel too short or too long. Favorite part: That this was a […]
