My word, I haven't posted since the middle of last week! Time flies.
Nothing much going on, except my last remaining cat is not doing well and, as a result, everything I do seems pointless and counterproductive and instead of singing along to the radio during my daily commute, I catch myself thinking about the transient nature of life and how cruel the universe seems. So you should probably be glad I haven't been blogging.
This year the region seems to be thoroughly infested with biting gnats of some sort. I've been calling them sweat bees although they're not; sweat bees have hard bodies like ants, but these have soft bodies that are smooshable. They resemble the bastard offspring of gnats and mosquitoes, and their bites both itch and hurt. They love me as much as I hate them, which makes it hard to get my garden prepared. Mom went out today and found me a green hat with mosquito netting, made for hikers and other outdoor types, and a long-sleeved red shirt with a high collar. Take that, killer gnats!
I have not written a word in days. This post doesn't count.
