Zero motivation to leave house today, so you get a food shot. It's jam packed with items I really shouldn't eat yet, but I am stubborn and silly.

Roy tried twice to eat chocolate, had to dig it out of his stupid little mouth and he chomped me but good as a result. I was going to take him to the revolving door vet on Friday, but then I remembered how little they did for Pickle when she was sick for so long, so I made an appt with another vet for next Saturday. I hope this pica of his is behavioral, not physical. Pickle, too, has increased her chewing, so I spent a good amount of time this weekend trying to de-pica my house.

Of course, the shot of this fella singing to the side so you can see it better was the only unfocused one I got. Grrr.

Okay, tomatoes are still on the no list even with an acid reducer. Ugh. I am sad. I love tomatoes so much.

Also, I have finally, finally installed a guide and stopper for my kitchen door! After borrowing a friend's drill, I (and I will never tell him this in a million years) couldn't figure out how to change the bit to use a super thin one to drill a pilot hole. Instead, I pounded a nail in as the pilot hole and used my power screwdriver to finish the job. LOL. Hey, I got it done. He does not need to know the drill kicked my butt.

The bad thing is, the cats can absolutely slide the door open. I'd thought a magnet attached to the door which would click on the stopper would do the trick, but it doesn't seem to be working. I'm going to try one of those super magnets instead. I'll have to eventually re-do the stopper anyway - it's not sitting right (I just used a corner brace for that, need to find a shorter brace).

Welp, so far the auditors have cited errors on items not even relevant to the program being audited and on a type of case they said they weren't looking at. Fun times.

Recently acquired:
  • Can neuroscience change our minds? by Hilary and Steven Rose. Steven Rose was a big influence on getting me into bioscience, so I excited to learn that he's written a new book about debunking neurobollocks, a subject close to my heart. And that he's written it in collaboration with his wife, a sociologist of science.

  • Three non-fiction books to give as belated bar mitzvah presents: I went with A history of God by Karen Armstrong, 1491 by Charles Mann, and The undercover economist by Tim Harford in the end. I reckon that gives a reasonable spread of perspectives, periods and cultures to get a curious teenager started.

  • A whole bunch of mostly novels for a not-very-sekrit plot.

Recently read:
  • This is a letter to my son by KJ Kabza, as recommended, and edited by [personal profile] rushthatspeaks. It's a near-future story about a trans girl, which has minimal overt transphobia but quite a lot of cis people being clueless, and also it's about parent death among other themes.

  • Why Lemonade is for Black women by Dominique Matti, via [personal profile] sonia. Very powerful essay about intersectionality between gender and race. I've not actually seen Lemonade yet, because everything I've read about it suggests it's a large, complex work of art which I need to set aside time to concentrate on, I can't just listen to the songs in the background. And I'm a bit intimidated by the medium of a "visual album".
Currently reading: A Journey to the end of the Millennium by AB Yehoshua. Not much progress.

Up next: I am thinking to pick up How to be both by Ali Smith, which has been on my to-read pile for a while. We'll see.

So this weekend I went to two synagogue services (in two different cities) and one church service, and I had a quiet going out for lunch and talking date with [personal profile] cjwatson and a bouncy metal gig date with Ghoti. And went to the cinema to see Beauty and the Beast and just about managed to squeeze in a little bit of time talking to [personal profile] jack. Um, it is hypothetically possible that I may have over-scheduled myself a bit.

I had fun, though )

Alas, I didn't even get out of the car so it's windshield-blurry. Also, the only pretty thing about today and it was gone before I even got down the hill.

Technically, it's "seeing 50+ people a week with flu may have given me the flu" post, too, as well as "I'm mostly done with all of the work that is due in the next 24 hours, even if I'm massively behind on my book still."

Also, first public post in a while. Hello, tiny herd of lurkers! [personal profile] misbegotten posted a survey, and I still like mindlessly answering questions, so here it is.

Kinda long. )

I have a feeling this'll be me by the end of the week - we're being audited, which involves "interviews" and copious amounts of time devoted to making sure people who are paid to sweat the very stupidly small stuff are satisfied. It couldn't come at a worse time. I am so backlogged the last thing I have is time not doing my day-to-day work.

Nothing against auditors. I know they do a key job; I could never do it. I don't think it's all that important to call people out on what can often be reasoned as typos.

The water was really low today, uncovering some things I hadn't seen before. But I could only pick one photo. That's the problem with this project; some days there's little of interest to find, other days there's too much.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.

*KABOOM!*
