Well, maybe not important, but cute.

And an extra bonus – kitten watching herself on video, for double the cuteness!

Updated Oct/4th – It’s sold!

After not posting anything in months, how about a little self-serving ad?

I am selling my beloved Rav 4. I’ve had it for 15 years and hate to part with it, but it is time. Very low mileage and well looked after, only 120,258 km.


Bumps in the Daytime

Posted 2016.06.21 11.27 in Spiritual

I haven’t been making note of weird goings-on here for a few years, but that’s not because the strange noises and things have stopped. It’s because it’s so commonplace I’m more or less used to it and it’s no longer noteworthy.

A Creepy DoorBut that means I don’t have much in the way of recent records or notes, for when people ask if anything spooky still happens around here.

So I’m making this note to remind me that there’s still creepy stuff going on, it just isn’t that creepy to me because I’m used to it.

The current thing for the past 2 or 3 weeks, is once or twice a day there’s a knock at the door. Not the front door. The door to the hall ‘closet’.

The hall closet is sort of a creepy door-to-nowhere. The closet is like 6″ deep. It’s a wierd pointless thing that is the remnant of one of the many wierd ways this house was built then changed over the past 140-odd years.

It is a skinny creepy looking door (with a lock) that opens to a pointless tall skinny ‘closet’ that’s not wide enough to hold linen and towels, without bunching them up.

Like so many architectural ‘features’ of this house, you don’t really think much about it till you actually stop and take a close look… and then you’re left with a profound sense of What the fuck were they thinking when they did this? or How in the world did this come to be?

The knocks are just a single rap, like knuckles on a wood door. And it happens during the day, not at night. Which I’m kind of glad about – everything is louder at night, and this knock sound is pretty loud during the day.

Less often, there’s a similar knock from the back of the house. I think it might be coming from the cellar door, but it might be the kitchen cupboards. Again, it’s the sound of knuckles on wood. It’s not daily though… once or twice a week maybe.

I don’t know if these knocks are someone wanting in, or someone wanting out, or just someone wanting attention.

It’s been going on for a few weeks though, randomly, so maybe it’s the ‘new thing’ for this summer.

For reference, the original part of the house was built in the 1860’s or 1870’s, and the ‘new addition’ was likely added in the 1940’s. This is most obvious in the cellar, the original cellar and foundation has the same footprint as the older part of the house; the ‘new’ cellar is… perplexing.

Edited to add: 3 minutes after I posted this, at 11:30am – Knock! Lol

Aquatic Thoughts

Posted 2016.06.03 12.09 in Aquaria

It’s been roughly two and a half years since I lost all my beloved wet pets because of the big Ice Storm. In the aftermath of that tragedy I decided not to start over. I didn’t want to risk the possibility of going through that sort of thing again.

I’d had snails, fish, and frogs for several years at that point; all of the snails were those I’d bred through generations and some of the fish I’d had for many years, a couple were even bred in my tanks.

So when I was finally able to return home after the house had thawed, and after I’d cleaned out the tanks and disposed of the bodies, I got rid of it all. Couldn’t face it again.


The past couple days though I’ve suddenly been thinking about snails again. And maybe frogs, or fish…

I’d pretty much have to start over, all I kept from before was a few bits and pieces. Looking at prices and online windowshopping, I think it’d cost me about $150 to start over with the sort of setup I want.

Nothing huge like before, but more than a little ‘beginner’ set. Something like a 20 or 25 gallon long tank. I’d have to re-arrange some stuff in my livingroom but there’s a spot for it, sort of.

With a 20- or 25-gal tank, I could have a couple snails and a couple small fish, or a couple small frogs.

I sort of want to do it but I also sort of don’t want to.

So I’m sitting here trying not to go to an aquarium store, and if I do happen to accidentally end up at one, I will try not to end up buying stuff.

No guarantees though.

The Blanket Connundrum

Posted 2016.05.31 9.41 in Pointless Blather

I have this blanket that’s super soft and warm. My mum gave it to me years ago. It’s just perfect.

Except in one corner there’s a tag that’s sort of scratchy and itchy. So I always make sure that’s at the bottom where it won’t irritate me.

Invariably when I’m cold and I grab the blanket in the middle of the night, it’s all backwards and I end up with the tag in my face or by my arm and end up having to turn the thing all around to get it right.

Every so often I stop and think: I could just cut off the tag. Then there won’t be an itchy corner, and I will never have to worry about whether or not the blanket is right-side-up or up-side-down.

But I never actually cut off the tag.

Because I am worried that without the tag…

I won’t actually be able to tell if the blanket is right-side-up or not.
