Cat with thyroid condition made one more trip to the vet. Upping the medicine a little seems to have worked but he developed some sort of rash on his forehead. The vet said that she read that the stuff he’s taking could cause that but wow, she said, I’ve never seen it before. She was impressed. The rash seems scabbed over and fading so maybe that cat is done for a year or so. There’s still another to terrorize by taking it to the vet.

I made rolls using mashed potatoes, rolls and bread because you’re supposed to make the rolls in muffins tins but I only have one so I put the rest of the dough in a bread pan. First time making that recipe or any with potatoes and I declare them tasty.

Not so much for the sort of pancakes baked in the oven made with mashed potatoes. They were the trigger to start the whole potato festival but I tried to half the recipe and things went terribly, terribly wrong. I should have stuck with my mother’s putting an egg and some breadcrumbs in the mash and frying them up . Not gone with uppity ideas.

PBS is playing silly buggers with Dickensian. They showed one episode weeks ago, then nothing for a while, then showed several for two weeks (beginning with the first epi again) now nothing for two more weeks. Just like they’re CBS or ABC.

Also, the Republicans in Congress again want me dead.

And now I've gotten my icons updated on DW and made sure entries will crosspost, I think I'm set. Though I probably should have done this months ago because now DW is missing a few entries but I can't remember how to fix that so I suppose it'll just stay that way.

I'm getting back in to looking up some writing comms - I've already signed up for [community profile] hc_bingo and I'm looking at a few others. I miss doing those and a lot of the ones I used to get involved with for weekly prompts don't seem to be active anymore, which is a shame since it looks like at least one of them was active up until just a few weeks ago. Those comms were always great for the muse!

Meh, I'll figure it out. Meanwhile, I'm slowly getting my VM fic posted at AO3 though I'm just posting them as is and including the original post date in a note. It's a bit fun to see how my writing has changed over the years, considering I wrote those back in 2005/2006!

Happy Friday, folks! I'm going to bed. I have to be up in like 5 hours but I got caught up in icons and writing a new Captain Canary (or rewriting the start - I can't find the notebook with the original start). Oops.

Netflix movie The Deep Blue Sea )

A quiet week in the neighborhood except for the car that ran into a house across the way. The other night about 2AM, I was about to turn off my light and go to sleep and I heard a thump, not a crash but more like when the garbage truck empties a dumpster. Then a guy is yelling, and I’m thinking it’s some kind of domestic fight. And he yells for a long time and after a while there’s cops and firefighters, and looking out the window I see a car up against a house. I live in a mobile home park and there’s a lane between houses that lets two cars pass. This car was on the wrong side of the road. Perhaps a little too much happy juice. The next morning I could see that a real job had been done on the house’s skirting. The owners have only restricted access for safety. That’s the third time a car has run into a house since I lived here.


I finished a book, And Furthermore by Judi Dench. Lots of anecdotes, nothing too deep but enjoyable. She had a fine time, thank you very much. She didn’t mention my favorite movie of hers, On Giant’s Shoulders which was actually a BBC play of the week. I have no recollection how I came across it.

I realized I saw her in a play, The Gay Lord Quex. I’d tell you how many years ago but I don’t want to scare you. I don’t remember her only Daniel Massey.


Meme:; Kitchen, favorite comfort food.

Well, my mother wasn’t a good cook, neither was my childhood home a place of comfort. So I don’t have any memories to go to.

But I’m not a good cook either but most any kind of pasta makes me happy.
