"And women? Great googly moogly."

I awoke to fog and clouds and snow scabs. The slow melt continues. Back towards the woods, away from the cabin, the ground is still completely white, or very nearly so. We are only five days from April. And I'm sure there's still a lot of snow lying about in Providence. Currently, it's 46˚F here.

Yesterday was the third dental visit, and all sorts of unpleasant things were done to my mouth. Afterwards, an impression was made with a tray filled with blue alginate, and then a surprisingly decent looking temporary tooth was stuck in my head. But turns out that it'll be two more weeks until the crown is finished, not one, and we just can't stay here two more weeks. We need to get back home. So, we'll be heading back to Providence, then returning on April 8th. We're still not sure which day we're leaving Woodstock. Day after tomorrow or a week from now, we've not decided.

There's really not much in the way of news. I haven't had much time to work. I'm going to try to get Sirenia Digest #110 out before we leave.

I've been reading a little: "A sand tiger shark–dominated fauna from the Eocene Arctic greenhouse" and "Birds are Dinosaurs: Simple Answer to a Complex Problem" and The Gilboa Fossils. No, no fiction. My motivation to read fiction may be at an all time low.

    Dreary weather that looks as if it will turn abysmal tomorrow, after thunderstorms last night. Overcast all day, and our high was only 65F. And yes,…

    Some sun today and no rain. Our high was a muggy 80F, with a heat index of 82F. A busy day. Most of the morning was spent putting together Sirenia…

    Overcast most of the day. Our high was 80F. Not much sleep, but still another fairly productive day. But also a day that was irritating as hell.…
