Journal 8-27-16

Other weirdness--they wrote their insult on a print-out of an author website with my bibliography. On both sides of the paper. Because...uh...I guess they needed to fit in Jackalope Wives and a couple of Digger volumes on the back for...maximum...offensiveness...?

For those of a curious bent, the crushing insult delivered with such care was "Your photo broke my computer, ugh!" Alas, they did not include a return address, allowing me to reply with the "I'm rubber, you're glue" response that I believe is traditional in such cases.

(Really, I'm mostly just impressed they spent stamp money on it. But the postmark was from Portland, OR, and I would certainly expect any hate mail from Portland to be small-batch, artisanal, and presumably free-range and hormone-free as well.)

On the bright side, my turmeric really is kicking butt. I wedged it under the fig. I just hope it overwinters. I've read reports of it being too tropical to survive less than 65 degrees, and others of it overwintering outside in 7b, so we'll find out, I guess.

FAN MAIL (also from Portland): YOUR LOOKS ARE VERY NICE. You have this one look that is like "what." and you have this other look that is like "oh shit that is awesome!" and you have a third look that I cannot capture in words except to summarize it with all of the others as 'nice,' which damns it with faint praise. There are others, equally nice, which are outside the scope of this FAN MAIL.

Awwwww. That is so kind!
