Figures from Renaissance paintings photoshopped into present-day photos.

Been quiet online here, mostly due to hanging out on a couple of private Slack channels instead of my normal haunts. :)

Quick rundown of the eventful couple of weeks: Read more...Collapse )

Just got tickets for us for Circus 1903 in a few months. GIANT ELEPHANT PUPPETS. How could we not?

Other than that, not a vast amount happening around here.

Sora haaaates the new LitterRobot we got, to the point of expressing his opinion in several places including, this morning shortly before we got up, the basket full of my clean laundry. So I am telecommuting until the laundry is finished.

While he is prone to crystals in his urine, the pattern of places he has expressed his opinion recently is unlike the places he goes when he's suffering that problem, and more like places carefully chosen for being associated with Toby or I, so we think it's "HEY PUT IT ALL BACK LIKE NORMAL" and not "I HURT FIX IT." (Note: we do have another litterbox set up next to the robot, so he doesn't have to use the robot.) But we do have a vet appointment next week and will be discussing this very problem and potential solutions, and if the vet thinks it's necessary, getting one of those kits to collect his urine and getting it analyzed to rule that out.

Cats. Argh.

Yes, you!

I believe you are in need of being disdained by a giraffe calf.

You're welcome.

I admit that I sometimes put on too much perfume and apologize to
scent-sensitive people for that, but when you have on so much that it
lingers in a cloying mass in the bathroom for MINUTES after you've left
YOU'RE WEARING TOO MUCH PERFUME.

I'm feeling vaguely guilty for just saying "Thanks!" and nothing else on the knitting suggestions but really, that post's for Toby. I just wanted y'all to know I was reading it and appreciated the suggestions. :)

I have also notified Toby of the existence of Meow Yarn, yarn dyed to resemble cat fur colors, and told him when he gets good enough I want something knitted from one of those. Notifying my mother, a weaver, of its existence has not produced anything yet so I am now dependent on my husband. XD

Suggestions for someone's second-ever knitting project?

Not me: Toby. He wanted something productive/creative to do with his hands while watching TV so he picked knitting. After watching a lot of YouTube videos he has knitted a skein of yarn into a somewhat lumpy scarf that I shall wear with pride, but he now is looking for the next thing to do.

The scarf was entirely the knit stitch. He is cautiously open to learning the purl. XD (He claims it was because he wanted to make sure he had the knit stitch down but whatever.)

Just got a spam email at work with a URL that included "Potato Transformation Symposium." Not going to click it because (a) malware and (b) whatever's there will be a disappointment compared to what my mind conjures up from that phrase.

Upright and at work for the first time in a week, although not particularly happy about it.

In celebration, have a cat.

At the hagfish stage of the cold, in which we learn the answer to "how much
snot can one head hold?"

(Answer: all the snot. It can hold all the snot.)
