The crocuses in my yard all picked slightly different times to bloom. This one picked the right time, no competition for those good spring rays and no frost to merc it. Good job, lil crocus!

bored WFH? close one (1) door in your house each morning, and watch your cats melt down in the brave new world you've constructed. rotate which door each day, they have lil tennis ball brains so as long as your house has 2 doors they'll be surprised every time.

"Cat People" (1942) is like if George Darling from "101 Dalmations" got married to Dracula, and kept plinking away at his piano and making soothing noises in his fake 1940s Hollywood accent while Dracula moped about how he was cursed to kill George, and then eventually kills George.10/10

using some thread to "train" an unruly pepper plant after i saw it on "The Victorian Kitchen Garden." sitting by my mailbox waiting for my "ruler of cottagecore" crown to arrive

that twitch that originally-serialized novels have, where they explain the same thing every chapter? in "The Mutant Weapon," Murray Leinster manages to do that 5-6 times in a single chapter. i'm convinced it's intentional, to pad the word count, and i 100% support it.

I've converted a couple of videos from the archived 1996 website of Babylon 5 to a modern format for your enjoyment!

The original file is at the resolution of 156x88 but the content is so 90's internet that I just had to.

Starting with Ivanova welcoming you to the online experience with a bit of a warning.

• birds are not susceptible to capsaicin
• birds are basically dinosaurs
• so dinosaurs were not susceptible to capsaicin
• so dinosaurs could not use hot peppers in their cuisine for their "heat"
• so dinosaur cuisine probably relied more on black pepper and sharp acidic flavors for heat

Smoke in the air makes me emotionally volatile. Like, just physically breathing it, independently of its tie to the global ecopolitical situation. During previous smoke events, back when you could just buy N95s, wearing one produced a noticeable improvement in my mood.

If you're in the smoke zone feeling cranky/depressed/anxious, consider that it might be doing this to you too. Clean your air as best you can and be gentle with yourself, yeah?

this is frank. frank is a minor celebrity in the nearby town because he lives near the hospital and spends a large chunk of his time either outside around the hospital asking people for pets, or being removed from the hospital by staff because he keeps sneaking inside to ask more people for pets

Hills seem bad.
People complain about the struggle of going up hill.
It is also considered bad when things "go down hill"
And hills are places on which people choose to die.

Avoid hills, just go around.
