I find this haunting.Â Someone has tried to reconstruct Babylonian song.
Yesterday I saw Sue in Little Women the Musical. Â Unfortunately the book was not as good as the actors and musicians. Â Fortunately I was able to argue my points with the actors afterwards without being dishonest or unkind, and it widened into a broader discussion of the challenges and rewards of musical theatre. Â Ten years ago I would have said, Oh it was great, it was great. Â Now I have the brains to respect people enough to be honest and the social intelligence to be honest without being a cad.
It was in Granville Island. Â I had half an hour to Christmas shop. Â I got an Alexosaurus (stuffed T Rex) and a kazoo. Â Strangely, that is what I wanted. Â I have rarely had a briefer and more pleasant Christmas shop. Â The weather was crisply glorious and I likely won’t get to Granville Island again until Tammy comes.
Jeff and I walked to IHOP and back for breakfast. Â It was very pleasant.
I think Riddle Number II is a cloud. Â What do you think?
Work on the trilogy continues. Kima is pregnant – with more than 100 zygotes Â by three fathers of two different morphs. This presents any number of social, emotional, physiological and ‘race’ issues.
I had a pleasant recent conversation with Dave JD. Â He has joined the ranks of the unemployed. Â I tried to get Facetime to reduce the expense of talking to him and repeated and lengthy attempts to purchase it were fruitless. Â I really loathe anything to do with Apple customer service. Â When I want an Android app or book I press a button, and free or not, it appears on my phone in about five minutes. Â (I’m still on the first chapter of the Piketty book -if anyone wants to mock me… go ahead).
I can’t really deal with heeled shoes any more so I took two pairs of Fluevogs into church yesterday (the bus DIDN’T COME at 10:03, or even five minutes earlier according to the guy I ran into so I was 25 minutes late for church, screw you translink). Â Anyway the teenaged co-congregant who had admired my steampunky shoes got about 300 dollars worth of footgear in a little bag, and if I did nothing else yesterday I made her very happy. Â Her socks MATCHED the second pair of shoes, in a most gratifying way.
How do you detect an extrasolar planet?Â With objects found in hardware stores and Nikon lenses and software and a little something something to remove blur.
Yesterday morning I awoke to a dream in which Hitler’s mustache was crawling up my door frame. Â I woke up for real and spent a disoriented couple of seconds looking for it. Â Very odd, and not a little disturbing.
Breakfast of writing champions! Peanut butter cookies warm from the oven and fair trade coffee with real cream. Â Ha!
We think Autumn may be knocked up. Â It’s always something.
