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.

I had to read the comment twice, because I mis-parsed it the first time -- Bastian, *my* Siamese/mix (he's a rescue, so we don't know his parentage) was in the icon I used, and for a second, I thought you were referring to him :)

Okay, Ursula, tiebreaker -- who wins this round of "IDENTIFY URSULA'S PETS"?? ;)

I'll confess I may have cheated on the ID, although I was leaning that way because I can sort of see his "points". ;)

Aha!! :D

I can see the points now (oddly enough, more clearly in the Twitter pic, the journal pic is smaller on my phone) -- it looked like "solid cat, ripply sunbeam" in the smaller version ^__^

Enjoy your next round as a contestant on "IDENTIFY! URSULA'S! PETS!!" I have been eliminated, but I get to go home with a chatty mandrake root and a small clump of genuine turmeric! ;)
