Today was officially one of THOSE days, and tomorrow will likely be worse. What is it Will Stanton gets told in Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising? "Tonight will be bad, and tomorrow will be beyond all imagining." I loved that book when I was a kid. Read it until the spine broke, quite literally, and the pages fell out of the spine. I haven't re-read it for years.

[personal profile] inlovewithnight has collected a whole passel of links about everything from why women are leaving the tech industry, to Soviet-era creative hockey magic, to MRA's to asexuality. I'm too tired to relink everything when she already did all the work, so go read.

Young Miss Weaver has been throwing up on and off for the past few days, and I'm getting really tired of cleaning up after her. She doesn't go outside, so she can't have eaten something that disagreed with her. I'm trying feeding her a teaspoonful of food every hour or so and seeing if it stays down. And changing her water a lot because it's easy to get dehydrated when you're vomiting. I'm playing the part of the conscientious cat staffer, but on the inside I'm really mad at her for being inconsiderate enough to get sick and make me step in it. She doesn't usually have a delicate stomach, nothing like one of her predecessors, the late, great Bulimic Supermodel. BS was a Balinese (think Siamese but with longer fur), and he was *gorgeous*, with deep blue eyes like sapphires. But boy did he ever love to throw up. I don't miss that about him, and I don't need YMW following in his footsteps.
