worth it

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

There are times when I miss the noon-to-8:30 shift. (Frequently when I’m trying to schedule any kind of appointment; never when I’m reminded of the pervasive workplace bias against non-standard shifts.) It’s not the work I miss, but the timing was occasionally convenient, and the company was often excellent. (I am okay at figuring out […]

we meet again

Monday, July 30th, 2018

Things I am looking forward to today: *free coffee *access to a photocopier *walks with friends Since all of those things are most easily obtained by going to work, it must be time to change out of my pajamas and make that happen.

Sunday baking

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

I have officially baked something today! I mean, a box mix was involved, because come on, this was one of my ‘thrice a year I shall bake, so that I feel accomplished and remember why I don’t do this more often’ days. I’m not gonna go buy flour and stuff just for that. Today’s baking […]

caturday ramblings

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

*I am officially declaring July to be fiscally complete as of today. Partly because the middle of next week would be an inconvenient time to have to do all the monthly budget reconciling, compared to today, which would be very convenient. And partly because it’s been an expensive month, and I’m making the executive decision […]

Deception At Its Finest, by STARSdidathing I’m always a sucker for ‘the villain’s not really that villainous’ fics, and this one includes Loki turning into a cat, which is an added bonus! “What part about me screams ‘I’m a pet person’?”

memes in real life

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

#1 easiest to use meme in real life: “Bold of you to assume…” It’s versatile! It’s subtle(ish)! It’s recognizable, yet doesn’t raise eyebrows for those who’ve never seen it. Sadly this one seems to be a bit of a flash in the pan, at least in the tumblr-sphere. I made sure to use it at […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

I was lingering in the kitchen at work yesterday, as one does, waiting for the microwave. So I let my eyes wander over all the stuff that’s posted on the wall — list of birthdays this month, mandatory OSHA posters, that sort of thing. And I found my attention caught by the first aid poster. […]

computer cat strikes again

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018

I know I’ve mentioned before that the cat likes to walk over the keyboard, and has a knack for opening itunes. He’s recently graduated to just full out sitting on the keyboard, looking at me. (This seems to be part of his mealtime reminder plan. Since his internal clock sometimes runs a little fast, the […]

fun with clippers #3

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Third time not *exactly* the charm, in this situation. I got a little enthusiastic with the around-the-ear attachment on the first side, then figured it made sense to at least have both ears look weird in the same way, so I did my best to match it on the second side. Good news: it grows […]

more true than I realized

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

Waaaaaay back in the early days of Buffy (like, maybe the pilot?), someone (probably Giles?) has a line about how everyone appears to have forgotten about whatever vampire showdown thing happened because their brains have just rationalized it away as something else. And at the time I was like ‘lol no but I get that […]
