Muh boy in muh chair

Yesterday or today, I think.

The cats are mad with all the new mice and bunnies (and, sadly, birds) in the garden. And the warming temps. Won’t be long now before we can leave a window open and they can come and go as they please (without waking us up to go out at the crack of dawn).

Sorry for being neglectful. This is my favorite time of year and my heart isn’t in here, on the computer.

We got lambs, people. Lambs.

I’ve seen very few lambs in my life, but I do like the little white lambs wearing dark knee socks, who go out to frolic and play king of the mountain.

My only direct connection to sheep was the mouton coat (ca.1955) I inherited in 1985, and weighed at least 30 lbs. It was deep dark brown—sable colored, really—and looked fabulous against my white white skin and red red hair. Unfortunately, I did not have enough elan to wear a thirty-year old mouton coat when my contemporaries were wearing mink or sheared beaver, and I only wore it a few times.

Sigh. I wish mouton would come back in style. Of course, nothing goes out of style faster than “in style.”

Well this is pretty much off topic, but for PC gamers out there (like Ms. Stoaty), Ubisoft is giving away (for free) copies of “Assassins Creed Unity” to commemorate Notre-Dame (the game is set in Medieval Paris). Offer is open only for a few more hours.


This is link to US Ubisoft store but same deal in UK.

God help me, I read “PC” gamers as Politically Correct gamers.

I’ll go sit in the rain until it, hopefully, wears off.

Stoaty, your beast though shorthaired looks very much like my white-and-black Siberian, Chekov.

Deborah, scroo being “in style.” If it looks good on you, wear it. You’ll find others are copying you.

Awesome, peacelovewoodstock! Done. Offer is good to the 25th, for anyone interested.

I’m just finishing up Assassin’s Creed: Origins (recommended: gorgeous open world in a painstaking ancient Egypt).

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
