Kitty Traffic Management

I am so pumped for 3:35pm every single day. It’s great having something I can look forward to, even though I’m usually at work during that time and I have to slink away from the counter for a few minutes. You see, that’s the time when Tabby Crawshaw’s new video gets posted, every single weekday, …

Go, Baby Turtle!

Fascinating feature yesterday on the plight of baby sea turtles. The rates of sea turtles reaching maturity is incredibly low, because sometimes the eggs get eaten by predators, the babies get eaten before they reach the ocean, and then once they get to the ocean it’s a whole new world of dangers for tiny babies …

Such Vexing Silliness

I get that the world of the virtual is pretty much supposed to be a place for freedom, but some people are taking this to the limit. Over-Botch just gave us an entirely new set of accessories, which were fairly limited before. No one cared, because this is a game focusing on career realism, but …

Bring Me Boots!

Bah, shoes! I don’t see what’s wrong with a nice, solid pair of dragon leather boots, preferably enchanted so that they repel water, keep your feet super cozy and allow you to soar through the air if you think enough good thoughts.  I haven’t seen any dragons in this realm, but that’s no excuse. They …

Thieves beware

If the ball is too big for your mouth, you should probably get yourself a new ball, because THAT ball has been in someone else’s mouth and it’s probably infected with all kinds of germs and such. Honestly, I fail to comprehend why anyone would be stealing anyone else’s ball. Such silliness. I’m most vexed. …

A To B

Auctions, contracts, surveyors… oh my! That’s my life at the moment: a big swirling quagmire of things I don’t really understand. I’m coming to grips with some of it, mostly out of desperation to stay afloat. The brutal reality of the property market is that you need to learn to swim, or you’ll sink. That’s …

Weed The People

Weeds: can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. I mean, I’m forever removing them from my garden beds and pathways, and fighting an uphill battle to keep my grassy patch from having no actual grass in it. On the other hand, I do like to eat said dandelions – hey, it’s cheaper than buying …

Stupid Ghost Boat

I suppose if you asked me about the main purpose of a railing, I’d say that it’s to stop things from falling off a platform – things like people, and… well, mostly just people, I guess. Currently, my boat doesn’t have a bow rail, so I suppose there’s always the clear and present danger that …

Proper Earthquake Readiness

Pshh, flat-earthers. Amateurs. Also, hollow-earthers. Double-amateurs. I don’t even have anything to say on the subject of round-earthers; you guys are crazy, and also sheeple for believing the mainstream. No, the hottest and most scientifically verified theory at the moment is that the earth is actually shaped like farfalle. That’s right: a big old bow-tie, …

Musings On Medicine

Medicine is such a weird phenomenon. Do you ever stop and just go, wow, how is this a thing? Maybe it’s just me, but surely it’s worth taking the time to appreciate just how improbable it is that we meat sacks in space have managed to piece together how to… well, piece our bodies back …
