Katie and Alex and I saw humpback whales (two of them) from the stern of the ferry boat yesterday. It was so marvellous!
The first thing I thought of when I woke up this morning around 3 am was Alex. He has a memorable face, and such merry blue eyes. Katie and I had a talk and I told her that I won’t try to pick him up or cuddle him again until he wants me to; I may wait years, or forever, but he’s just not that into me, so I’ll let myself be baby driven.
I was not able to get as much of the mOm-assisted edits done this time and while I’m disappointed I think it will be fine. I’m not feeling any pull toward writing today so I’ll work on other things instead.
I very much enjoyed driving the Modo car, which is a Prius. I didn’t enjoy the gas card not working so I have to make sure I get my money back.
DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH TURDS. There’s no picture, but some of you ****ers be squeamish.
I took a book by a Christian (Phil Ryan) out of the library. It’s called After the New Atheist Debate and it’s a sort of Point Counterpoint on the New Atheist positions and the Defenders of the Faiths – including the horrifyingly sexist and racist Theodore Beale. BUT it contained this gem: Alasdair MacIntyre is paraphrased by Ryan as saying “modern moral debates (are) ‘interminable’ because of the ‘conceptual incommensurability’ of rival positions”.
