We had a PET scan report today, and it wasn't good. Rob's remission lasted five months, about as long as the one he had two years ago did.

I don't know why On The Naming of Cats (and other Things) didn't crosspost properly and I'm too fucking tired to chase it down.

Need to sort through.

Too tired to brain so this is exciting all around.

Mostly for me )

I see that a number of people are moving to Discord for chat, both in general and also because AIM is going bye-bye.

I'm Azz#2671 if anyone wants to chat there; I have it on the desktop but I'm not sure if I've installed it on the current phone.

Assumptions, baking

... I believe that two of my friends have invented an entire spouse for a third friend (all former co-workers of mine) on the strength of baking.

Specifically, the colleague very occasionally brings meat pies in. And he was going to bring some in at some future point, but he moved continents before it happened. And his wife bakes them.

I was certain that no such entity exists, and that the man does his own baking.

The guys and I haven't synchronously discussed it, and they're not even quite sure on gender, and they barely hear of "her"...

I shall have to inquire.

But as things stand, two of the better informed and well intentioned feminist dudes I know believe that someone else bakes for a certain man...

others claim it, we are it.

I figured out a little bit why I'm not feeling myself. The daylight is changing. As much as I'm a night owl, I am definitely a person who needs sunlight to help with the brain. Time to pull out the grow light again and see if that helps.

I have saffron crocuses bulbs to plant, as well as bitter orange seeds to see if I can get to sprout. I'm thinking about using them as a back fence instead of the dratted barbed wire the extension service put up. I hate running into surprise!barbed wire, it means I have to be really watchful for tetanus. (Yes, my shot's up to date. I got my TDAP about a year ago.) Also, it'd be easier on a goat than metal fencing. If we ever get goats.

For some reason I keep thinking of Taylor Swift's 'Look What You Made Me Do' as a Sansa Stark song. I keep hearing it and thinking of her.

We got new-to-us furniture! We have a bunk bed we're going to put in the mudroom and we're getting a sectional with chaise lounges. Our current couch and reclining love seat will go to Linda in Baton Rouge. They had to get rid of their couch because someone brought bedbugs into the house. Alas.

I'm baking off brioche to see how this recipe works for small buns to take to SCA daytrip events so we can have lunch. I usually do a bread, a dried meat, boiled eggs, lemonade, and sometimes a sweet of some sort. I think chocolate chip cookies will be this one. I'd planned it for this weekend's Coronation, but Hurricane Nate sort of made that not happen. Coronation got moved to next weekend so instead of Four Horsemen, it's Four Horsemen of the Second Rise of the House of the Holy. ;) Still.
I am amused at us, though, because Gleann Abhann is the Stormborn Kingdom. Everyone else can call themselves that, but nobody else had their First Coronation under the Blue Tarps of Hurricane Recovery. You can't keep us down.
