Very hot today. We reached 100˚F with the heat index, and it's still 82, without the heat index.

Today I wrote 1,160 words on a new piece that is, for now, titled "The Rats of Ulthar." It will appear in Sirenia Digest 172.

And I read T.E. Lawrence. And I finished Olivier Rieppel's Turtles As Hopeful Monsters, an examination of the search for an answer to the various problems of turtle evolution, largely through the lenses of phylogenetics, embryology, and evolutionary developmental biology.

Spaghetti with white basil sauce and green peas for dinner. And then more good RP in Second Life. I think I laughed so hard I almost laughed up a lung or three.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

  • A Fistful of Herpetofauna

    I think from now on I'm gonna cut to the chase and describe myself as "gender oblivious." The sun is back, thank goodness. Delta was not welcomed…

  • Bat Country

    Rain. Rain. Torrential rain. Thank you, Delta. Another mostly unremarkable day. No afternoon comfort film. GW2, instead. I only get comfort films…
