Ok, so I finally joined Pottermore. I was amused. To no one's surprise who knows me, I was sorted into Gryffindor, and then into Wampus for Ilvermorny. I also ended up with a wand made of yew wood with a Unicorn hair core 10 ¾" and Unbending flexibility. Tres amused. And then I got a Swift (as in the bird) as a Patronus. Immediately the song "One of these things is not like the others..." got stuck in my head. So yah, that's me, bundle of contradictions. Sounds about right.

Something I know some people on my list would like to know about. cough +LadyRed L
I seem not to be reading really good books lately. But I also seem to be really enjoying a certain cracktastic flavour of book—I’m thinking of them as the equivalent of a B-movie, the book th…

We are living in a post-catopolypic world. The cats have already taken over, and we just don't know so. #worldcon

Whee! Ancient and modern history collide!
Another two golds last night for Michael Phelps, the most decorated American Olympian ever: That makes 21 gold medals in his career, 25 medals overall, and with his win in the 200m butterfly—a particularly personal win, given his loss in that event four years ago—Phelps now has 12 individual wins to bring him into a tie with the late, great Leonidas of Rhodes.

Another first for Obama. A good one, too.
President Obama has achieved a first for a sitting president – he's published a paper in a leading peer-reviewed journal. The paper reviews the introductio

Tripped on the concrete stairs and sprained my ankle pretty badly. Crutches suck. So does icing my ankle.

Got rid of my crutches, and no longer need the ice, but I'm still walking like Grandpa on the Real McCoys. No fun.

Something I need to keep track of.
 
Much of what you believe to be true probably isn't, thanks to a mental shortcut your brain takes without you realizing it.

So, MidAmeriCon II, aka WorldCon, starts today. I'm going all five days. Talk about nervewracking. I'm already fighting off anxiety and panic attacks bad enough to make me want to throw up. And I'm only attending!

I'll be fine once I get there, I suspect, but I'm still stressed. Ah, well.

So, yah, not going to be around much for the next five days. Y'all have fun now, ya hear?

Kitties! Happy International Cat Day!
 
Medieval manuscripts are chock-full of cats preening, grooming, playing and basically acting all Lolcat

On World Cat Day, cats are the mascot of the internet even more than usual. Were cats the mascot of the middles ages, too? Cats think so Disclaimer : The medieval times was, in general,

~~~~~~~
Attention all single, divorced, separated, and widowed men who continually circle me!

I am not interested in any outside relationships. I am far too busy with my current set of relationships, including my marriage, to be looking for anyone else to add to the mix. My life is complicated enough. So, Not. Interested. No special cases, no long-distance relationships, no exceptions. My looking for line is not lying. Friends only. If someone wants to follow along to see what I have to say, that's fine. Otherwise, I refer you to Johnny Lee's song "Looking for Love". As in, this is the wrong place.

I am especially Not. Interested. if you're older than I am. Hard limit. Nope. No exceptions, either. No special cases, no give it a try, no nothing. Look somewhere else.
