Oh Hai. What's up? It's raining here in just the right way--steady enough to soak in, and hard enough to make a good dent in the drought. And it's excellently cool for the first time in ages and ages. [More:]

I'm soaking my mushroom log for the first time ever. I'm a bit intimidated by the complicated instructions, but deep down I bet the log is much less finicky than they claim.

There's a morning glory climbing up my porch that keeps opening every morning, despite the fact that the rest of the plant is dead. Talk about hope!

I was supposed to attend a mandatory pre-application workshop for a *large* state grant I was going to write this fall. Unfortunately, I have a fever and it was two hours away. Nobody else at work can go in my place*, so it looks like we're SOL.

*Our staff is mostly health care providers who have patients to see. The only two others are wrapped up in our major fundraiser event, which is on Thursday morning.
oh crap. more inside, please?

This mushroom log, specifically. A friend got it for me as a thank you gift for translating part of her PhD research survey into Spanish.

I can't wait for the yummy. But I need to find a brick to put on top of the log so as to keep it submerged.

Holy shit! That mushroom log is the Best Thing Evah.

What's up with me? Well, on the walk home this evening I walked under a tree and then noticed something on my glasses. I took them off and saw that it was three tiny caterpillars, the sort that look like maggots. They'd fallen out of the tree onto me.

Then I realised that there were DOZENS of the fricking wiggling horrors in my goddamn HAIR so I had to lean forward and ruffle my hair to try and get them all out, which left me having to walk the rest of the way (about half a mile) with my hair all sticking out like the Wild Woman of Borneo, and the odd maggoty caterpillar dropping onto my face.

People crossed the street to avoid me. I must have looked like an escaped lunatic.

Stop laughing, it wasn't fucking funny. I am washing my hair in Jeyes Fluid tonight, I swear.
