Okay, see, here's what happened. I set up a Facebook page for the next phase of Les Cartes Infernales, because I wanted to use a system that allowed for easy one-button messaging (Why don't you do that, G+?) and a system that allows integration with other services (why don't you DO that, G+??).

And I already admin a couple of Facebook pages because of those two things, so I really had to seriously sit down and say "do I want to do my Facebook posting for the day and have the majority of my notifications in one app, and then close that down and do more posting on G+ and not have those notification in the same time-saving app as the others?"

And the answer was "Oh crapdamnit, G+ -- I like you SO MUCH, why must you not be as easy to use as this stupid other thing over here, so I have to use that instead of you?"

So that's what happened, there.

(And, no, I don't want to post over there, and then come over here and copy/paste and go through and reformat. Because I don't have limitless time, and I'm already doing that once for folks that opted for a mailing list instead of Facebook (I will not give folks that have security issues with Facebook NO options).)

I understand your frustration. Mmmh, maybe actually relaying this will bring some attention to it. Let's try. :-)

So this commercial exists. I mean, I'm not surprised the PRODUCT exists, because I've been to the dollar store. But this commercial exists. In the real world. Really.

That's so perfect. I can't wait until they come up with a wife and kids. I could take them all out for dinner, and it wouldn't cost me anything. When I'm done eating, just stuff them in the car and go home. No family court, no pms, no problem.

In the mornings, I kinda stumble to the back door by muscle memory and let Lucy out to do her morning business while I figure out how to operate the refrigerator door and make red bull go in my face. It's a routine that requires very little in the way of braining because my brain and half of my motor skills totally aren't online yet.

But this morning, my brain was forced into quick startup mode by the sound of every bird in the neighborhood squawking the BABYKILLER DANGER AWK AWK battle cry two seconds after Lucy bolted out the door. And lord knows Lucy has made great strides in basic command comprehension since I brought her home, but coming when she's called if she's interested in something else is still a giant "ha ha no." So out I staggered into the offensive early morning sunlight to grab my dog before she ate the stupid scrub jay that was totally capable of flying as soon as it wasn't terrified.

Because lemme tell you: scrub jays hold grudges. I had a cat that got a baby, once, and YEARS later that poor bastard couldn't walk through the yard without getting dive-bombed by generations of jays that probably hadn't even been there when the murder happened. They just pass on the grudge forever. We finally just moved.

(That's not WHY we moved, but it was still the only way that cat ever got to sun himself peacefully in the grass, again.)

So, anyway, got the dog inside, and the birds took off (thank goodness., because if it'd been a fell-out-of-a-nest baby, I was not looking forward to navigating a ladder before red bull), and the yard was quiet again after breakfast.

But now Lucy is sniffing EVERY. SQUARE. INCH. of the yard trying to find that thing that was there and maybe it's still there just very quiet where could it be she's gonna find it. So that's ridiculous but happening. Oh my brilliant dog.

My yard is not big enough for a hive, but I am putting in more flowering plants to support the local wild bees.
