As silly as this might sound, I welcome more rain. Over the past few years of drought I've dreaded the end of what's passed for a rainy season. As wet at this past winter was, as we move well into spring I feel like I don't trust the weather not to go all droughty on us again.

My interests aren't better than others' interests.

I don't care about the Super Bowl. Friends of mine do. They have different tastes. Some like Springsteen, some like rap, some like Ultimate Frisbee or birding or scuba diving or contra dance or writing slash fiction or going to cons or cleaning beaches. Some like professional football. Some like two or more of these things. My interests aren't any better than theirs.

So. Much. Contradiction: "Marinelli is organizing a statewide referendum on independence to be held in 2019...He is preparing the ground for an “embassy of California” in Moscow, with the help of a vehemently anti-American group supported by the Kremlin..." but "California is a much more open, tolerant society, inclusive of immigrants or people of different sexual orientation,” Marinelli said." Do I detect bullshit? http://owl.li/WRUq308rOLR

Mary Tyler Moore has died. I loved the Dick Van Dyke show, the MTM show, and Ordinary People. But for some reason, when someone has been old, sick, and suffering, I'm almost relieved for their death rather than devastated. And she's not one I feel like I adored and will miss. I enjoyed her work, but she didn't change my world and I had no sense of her as a person.

She could certainly act well, though.

My kid has "The Answer Book," pub'd in the 50s (https://goo.gl/NB6uSh) with a page on why humans want to visit the moon. It references "black shimmering clouds" rising from one crater. Were they hallucinating? What could that have been about? I know I have enough science/space nerd friends to give me a clue.
