Goddammit, I need to get a pincushion.  This is the ninth time this week I’ve lost a needle; thank god they’re tapestry instead of embroidery.  Or maybe I should just make one.  Hmmm… that wouldn’t be such a bad project.  It’d be practical for once.

Now that we’re looking at landscaping our house, we’re thinking of putting in a Japanese Maple.  They’re so magnificent.

WHAT DO YOU AMERICANS MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT LIKE FUCKIN “8/7c” WHAT IS THAT????

We never switched over to metric timekeeping. The c stands for “Caw”, referring to how many times a majestic eagle has flown overhead and cawed that day. Sometimes the eagles are feeling sluggish, so the show could be on after either the 7th or 8th caw.

DONE.  FUCKING DONE.  I apologize for poor photography; I was using my phone at the time.  But who cares because I’m finally done with this.  Well Cloud, it was nice working with you but now it’s time for Mario.

"As societies become larger and inhabit a greater range of environments, and people become urbanized and detached from nature, languages and people shed specialized knowledge pertaining to the environment. English once made fine distinctions in animal names: a castrated goat or sheep was a ‘wether,’ a young female sheep ‘theaves’ (or ‘chilvers’ or ‘tegs’), and young sheep that are older ‘hoggetts’. As we have less to do with animals, naming systems fall into disuse — even new terms like ‘baby horse’ are inroads to refer to a foal or colt."
