@InvaderXan something like, "postdocs at it again! it's this time of the year, folks! the funding lights went off and they're on prowl in the academic limbos! so, research facilities, a word of warning: ya better prepare the lights! or who knows what may come out of their musings" ya know? :p

Had a job interview yesterday (just first-round). I think I did okay, though there was that moment about 45 minutes after the interview ended where I was convinced that I did a terrible job and everything was awful. Good thing I'm working from home and could just stick my face in my cat and quietly panic.
But the best thing is that I finally got to use my snowshoes! Took a two-hour walk in the woods this afternoon, and came home tired but happy.
(Worst Housemate earned the title by sneaking into my room and harassing my cat and then denying it, then holding an extended self-criticism session in my room, while still harassing my cat, who was hiding under the bed. And she's been snotty towards me ever since)
I have spent so much of my time in certain kinds of online spaces (like Mastodon!), and sometimes it's really striking how different my cultural context is from many of my coworkers. For example, yesterday I had to explain to one of my editors that there are some people who are just really into swords.
