"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.

    Saturday, June 16th, is the first day I've not been able to make an LJ entry since, I think, sometime in 2015. We're in Staunton, Virginia, and…
