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.

The Neverending Story is on Netflix, so now I'm watching the Neverending Story

1) I forgot Gerald McRaney was the dad
2) He's telling Bastian to crush his feelings about his mom's death and get back to work
3) He's drinking orange juice with a raw egg in it that he blended in the blender

We're doing an online class on newborn care, and I've has moved up to Advanced, Uncooperative Swaddling

I have about a dozen Space Doctor books to read (goodreads.com/list/show/106482) while you generate the other ~million I asked for. Totally reasonable.

"Star Surgeon" by James White is oooold (it calls intercoms "annunciators"), but the bones of the story (Medical Drama! in Spaaaaace!) is so good. Why aren't there a million books about space hospitals? Free book title: Grey Goo's Anatomy

Reminder for all Web-Drones, N. Scott Momaday is amazing:

"Momaday said the memoir will delve into his childhood with his teacher parents and explain why he sees himself as a reincarnation of a bear. He also plans to write about the surprise he felt becoming the first Native American writer to win the Pulitzer, and about studying American poet Emily Dickinson’s manuscripts, getting followed by Soviet Union agents while teaching in Moscow, and meeting artist Georgia O’Keeffe late in her life."

Amiga CD32 version of (Sid Meier's) Pirates! Gold was one of the later versions of the game (1994), but as a result it has the *most* 90s credits music track! 🤣👍

"Technology was a mistake!" I shout as a futilely try to smash open a coconut with my laptop

I thought Ron Perlman was doing a weird, gravely voice in Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula. The reality was so much better and weirder: it's Tom Waits!

The last thing I’ll say about Zathura (2003)? It was promoted through an episode of NBC’s The Apprentice. that’s right. the kids who liked Zathura had a positive association with Donald Trump and grew up to be voting age adults in 2016. Now I’m not saying the film is responsible for Trump’s presidency, but I would feel comfortable laying a majority of the blame on the cast and crew. #ZathuraMeltdown2020
