Headline of the day: Adorable snowshoe hares found to routinely feast on their own dead: study
This fits my worldview, already. From https://shirt.woot.com/offers/you-have-to-try-this-guys:
And yes, I own this shirt.
Hugo nominations are open! So this is where I casually mention that the Devil's West books (4 novels + shorts) is eligible for a Best Series nom, right?
So... Just got asked to co-submit a paper to a conference. Yay. Come to find out... it's kiiiinda a big conference in that field. Ok.

Um. Did the world just decide I need a nerve wracking pick me up? :P
Your inspiration for the day (and something to wave in front of the next jerk who reiterates the ‘kids are slackers today’ BS- ask them what THEY were doing when they were 19.)
@Gargron : One of the distinct pleasures is the ease of muting random spam "wanna see me naked" bots (not my thing, not a judgement). Muuuuch appreciated on how easy that is to do here.

Think of Mushu rising from the smoke/flames. I'm AALLLLIIIIIIVE.
Got sick. At one point in just shorts sitting around the house trying to cool off I wanted to open up our windows. Hub is in parka and under blankets going : uh... it's freezing in here, please don't?
It was fun. The spinny head/dizziness is another thing I'm happy to see gone. Falling over all the time: not as fun as you think.
Coulda broke a hip. :P

So. There's never a surety at the front end of things about where the line is in the mix of writer and actor. But as far as I've seen in this latest version I'm very thrilled about that mix. I'm hoping it's an equal part of both because new writers for different episodes and so on... But.
I do like this Doctor. She's brilliant and fun and interesting. Still serious. But gods it's nice to have a madcap rather than mad Doctor again.

... Sweetie. Y'all are under my skin already, I'm not putting your DNA there too unless it helps me shed it all over potential crime scenes to implicate you.

So. The chapter draft is done. Just formatting and references collected by my coauthor. And... first full draft is COMPLETE.

As an older 'mo, the big thing for me is ... how to find people to hook up with - or even just MEET ffs - that ... doesn't require me to leave my house or comfy clothes?
And doesn't have them invading my home/space.
Basically... I think I'm a fuckin' cat. "Pet me but never touch me or look at me or come near me, why are you leaving me so alone?"
(squints) Damn it. I suppose this is all a way of saying I need to be rational. Fuuuu...
