It's still Monday
morning early afternoon here, and today is pecking me to death already! Apparently, there is a blue light special on work-related emotional breakdowns (not mine, this time), two for the price of one. On the other hand, I got some tedious but informative work done this weekend, which feels very virtuous.
Food news: The new Thai place is good! And very nearby! This restaurant space has had a few loser years since the Mexican place closed -- the last incarnation was (I think) Chinese, but they kept the curtains closed and didn't post a menu; and the restaurant before that was all tofu. And I have no real objection to tofu, except that never in my life have I thought, "Oh, I'm just dying for some tofu!"
Wildlife news: My cat Polly, a feral rescue foster kitten who never became social enough for adoption, has not allowed anyone to pet her in the last 8 years. She slept by my feet last night. And in a true breakthrough, she put her little head by my leg; and then she let me pet her with my foot! She even turned her head so my foot could rub the other side! I know, this sounds underwhelming, but trust me, it is HUGE.
Weather report: Dry dry dry dry. Rain expected Wednesday, then dry dry dry. They keep promising us this El Nino, but one day does not a drought cure. Hugs to our Texas contingent, because lately, they've gotten rather more than is useful.
Political news: GO, LIZ!
What's the news up your way?
