Classic. I sneezed and she froze. Milli is still sitting there like this, so angry, booty cleaning entirely forgotten.

My job here is done.

There is so much fluff around at the moment. So. Much. Fluff.

The cottonwood fluff was falling yesterday. Glad it’s raining today instead.

Being an adult means realizing that while you love cat-sitting, having an actual cat will not work for you, because OMG, a week and there is so much cat hair! Everywhere!

I recommend at least one Chom Chom Roller Pet Hair Remover Lint Roller. Works great on the couch.

@clear_dusk
I’m constantly lint rolling my mouse pad, too.

Your cat’s hair isn’t even long! Maybe it’s just a shedding time?

Maybe I misunderstood. Are you cat sitting? :blobcatlaugh:

My mother claims “it’s good” (butter and cinnamon sugar on lefse) but acknowledges it isn’t fried. I find this claim highly dubious.

Seriously heard someone saying they don't listen to many black artists, because they aren't really into rap. Bitch please, feel free to share songs from Black artists from any genre. Here is one of my favorites, if you like this song please check out her other work:

So far, I see the moon and stars. There are some wispy clouds out there to remind me that taking pictures of the sky here is a full contact sport.

I’m getting tired and there are too many lights in my neighborhood. Here’s Milli pretending to be the aurora (lit by lamp red LED indicators).

Maybe tomorrow…

I figured out a trick for the tomato seeds:

The planting instructions on the packet said to cover with 1/4” soil, which I usually ignore for pods with variable success. Turns out you can rip a small section of the pod media off of a corner to create a cover for the seeds. Did it with something else earlier, so I’m two for two on improved sprouting. Woot!

Okay, this might sound weird, but this is what I'm thinking of today. I'm assuming most of you know the idiom, "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth." I know it's about looking at the horse's teeth to check it's age and health, but in my heart I have an alternate history where it's about The Trojan Horse, which doesn't really even make much sense, but it's still living there rent free.

So, does anyone else do this, make up alternate histories for words or phrases? If you do, I'd love examples!

@RickiTarr
If you say “dogs and cats” one way, it means fighting, but another way it means weird shit is happening. If you say “cats and dogs”, it’s about rain. This must drive non-native speakers nuts.

Are there any films or TV shows thay you found interesting but don't necessarily want to revisit?

Oh man. Yeah, no desire to rewatch Blackfish because it already lives rent free in my head.

Climate change could virtually disappear in Florida, at least according to state law - CBS Miami

@ai6yr
I initially read this as “Climate Change Could Virtually Disappear Florida”, which made more sense.

I need some new science fiction to read, who has some suggestions? I don't like military sci-fi. For reference, my favorite series is the Expanse, I also enjoyed Scalzi's Collapsing Empire, I love Robert Charles Wilson's books. I mostly enjoy space operas and unique stories about technology, for example I really liked the recent book Mountain in the Sea about AI and intelligent octopus. Suggestions from the awesome Bookstodon community? @bookstodon
