Current Affairs

I was going to call this post "State of the Intertext," but it seemed altogether too postmodern...

I got a new fridge today. I like it. It's clean and quiet, and rated just about as low as it's possible to be in terms of energy consumption. Physical memory is a funny thing, though - it's strange how difficult it is to get used to opening a door on the other side, or looking for vegetables in the middle instead of the bottom (this fridge is one of those with the freezer at the bottom and it has lovely big vegetable crispers, in the middle). But it holds a lot, including my wine bottles.

There is a catnip mouse in my bathtub. Just saying.

I made a delightful salad for supper with canned salmon and greens from my garden and a dressing made of one part sour cream, one part mayonnaise, one part buttermilk and a collection of chives, dill, sorrel and parsley all blended together.

Oh, and new potatoes. There are new potatoes! These are cooked with mint from my garden. Bliss.

I'm reading Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta, and it's really good.

Also, GLEE. GLEEEEEEEEEE!!! (I can't believe I haven't watched this before now...)

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
