Day Off

I ended up in town anyway because it was nice to have a walk and because I got to have coffee with [personal profile] keziath that way :)

Pokémon have been caught, comics have been read, pottering about has been achieved. And Kheldar was generous enough to reduce me to fits of giggles while he was basking on the balcony. His paws twitched. His tail twitched. His tail was expertly bought under control so that the important business of sleeping in the sun could continue. After a few minutes he raised his head, rested it on the side of his water bowl and fell asleep again.

Sploosh!

And now I know why my cat occasionally turns up with a damp head when the rest of him is dry. We have the best Kheldar. The best.

The weather doesn't know if it's coming or going and neither does Kheldar. One minute we're having torrential downpours and the next it's basking on the balcony in the sunshine weather.

I've had a busy weekend and a stupidly busy Monday and I suspect I'm going home late because I'm not in tomorrow and there are things that sadly can't be left until Wednesday. But at least this week's remote build instructor is absolutely lovely to work with.

In other news I am definitely spending too much time visiting coffee shops. Today's barista didn't even ask my name :)

New bookshelf!

Guess who salvaged a raw wood bookshelf off the side of the road today?  Really nice one too!  It just needed a quick wash, barely any dust or cobwebs on it at all.  Solid wood, no back, but well-built and surprisingly light!  Maybe one of the neighbor people made it, and decided they didn't want it anymore?

Anyway, I've given it to Sneak.  I'll get zer a new thing of gel medium or ModPodge  or something, and ze plans to decorate it like ze did the last one.  Ze's pretty psyched!

I feel like a successful big brother today.  Also a successful cheapskate.

Just when I was in need of a calming distraction... an unexpected Neko Atsume update appears. I've got to admit that I'd mostly stopped playing but given the number of conference call requests that the team mailbox got bombarded with this afternoon now seems like a good time to start checking in on the Neko Atsume yard again.

In real life feline news Kheldar is thoroughly disappointed by the amount of water that has fallen from the skies today. He has apparently spent most of the day asleep under a bed and is only willing to venture outside now that the rain has slowed from torrential to the occasional bit of drizzle. It is very, very wet underpaw and frankly that's just not acceptable for an elderly cat.

Oh look.



Yay! Giant mecha!

Gravity Falls Filk: Pure Of Heart

On tumblr, I use the tag 'IMPURE OF HEART' to describe that super-gross identity politics all about conspicuously performing virtue.  Someone showed me this filk of the Gravity Falls episode 'The Last Mablecorn,' called Pure Of Heart and I thought folks here might enjoy it.

Several Things Make A Post?

  1. I'm quietly pleased by the Doctor Who casting announcement. I just hope that the writers can step up to it and give her some really good scripts.

  2. Apparently last Friday marked a year of me playing Pokémon Go? I'm playing it less than I used to but I'm still pottering around with it so either that's a hopeless addiction or it's a game that manages to keep long-term player interested.

  3. Went for cocktails at the Rummer on Saturday to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. It was good evening but I should not be allowed access to both friends and internet at the same time. It turns out that if I wave Etsy pages at people saying things like, "I really like this coat," the general response is "That's awesome, you should buy it." So I've got a fancy new coat on the way to me...
