My eyes just rolled 360° into my head and back to the front.

"Is fishing in Animal Crossing vegan?

This is a biggie. Fishing isn’t vegan! You shouldn’t fish in real life, so you shouldn’t do so in the game, either."

I just planted out the frostweed I started from seed, plus the crinums, and spider lilies from So much going in for summer/fall, but we’re having a definite lag now that spring bulbs are done. I need to research what can bridge that gap next year.

Oh, and the blackberries I planted in January are already blooming. Ridiculous.

It is interesting to me that if I sit out and listen to the dawn, it is so much louder than the sunset. The birds are so tired and ready to rest in the evening.

Lots of folks are maintaining a thin shell of calm over a warm gooey center of freaking the hell out. It's coming out in weird, tangential ways. Folks getting mad over irrelevancies and minutiae.

Empty your lungs. Breathe in. Be patient with your friends. We need each other.

"Excuse me, that's my familiar."

"You're quite mistaken. Triffle's been with me forever."

"Nice try, I know my Lunabean anywhere!"

The silvery vixen coughed lightly between them.

"I confess; I have been Familiar-ing for you both this whole time."

The wizards stared at her, mouths agape.

"There's a shortage of Familiars requiring us to multi-bond," she explained.

"What're you two doing with my Star-Nyte?"

"...A preposterous shortage."

COVID-19 & emotional health +

This crisis will play out *identically* whether you check the news every 2-3 days or every 10 minutes. Whether you know every reckless thing every faraway powerful person did, or not.

What can you do to make YOUR life, and the life of those within your reach, a little better?

Can anyone tell me what this plant is that has cropped up in my Central Texas yard? Part shade and clay soil watered enough to keep saint augustine alive. The way it is all along an animal path makes me think it has burrs that cling to fur and I will want to get rid of it, but I prefer not to do that without knowing what it is first.

physical health, brief COVID mention 

My order from arrived tonight, so there was a frantic planting before sundown. They’re having a 10 for $10 sale on bulbs in the green and I got 20 daffodils and 20 snowdrops that needed planted ASAP after arrival. I also got crinums and spider lilies, but those are normal bulbs that can wait a few days before planting.

Switching to something a little more lighthearted -- question of the day:

What's the last thing you did that you're proud of?

(Boosts, etc, are welcome -- if you reply you'll guaranteed to get a reply from me telling you I think it's cool, too. <3 )

Hooray! Our local paper has updated their system so subscribers can (with a lot of fiddling) get past the "you must turn off ad-blockers" warning. I'd been refusing to use their site and getting ready to cancel my subscription because of that.
