Trumps former attorney/fixer Michael Cohen has surrendered himself to the FBI and is expected to plead guilty to multiple counts of campaign finance fraud, tax fraud, and bank fraud.

He's scheduled for a court appearance at 4pm Eastern and I am not sure I am going to get much of anything done today now because I will be on PINS AND NEEDLES waiting to hear what comes out.

@noelle gotta admit, I looked at that picture and thought "wow, that's a... remarkably diverse group of skinny white girls they've got going on" :|

honestly robotic cranes stacking and unstacking useless concrete weights for all eternity is the surreal dieselpunk energy storage solution earth deserves qz.com/1355672/stacking-concre

@troodon @zebratron2084 I'm on the 44 headed your direction now--sorry, I'm being confusing! XD I'll come knock on your door & we can figure it out from there, yah?

death, eulogy, dreamwidth link 

a week and a day ago I learned that Darrin Barnett, a friend of mine from over two decades ago, had passed away. a week ago, I wrote an eulogy. today, I finished editing it and posted it to DreamWidth. elynne.dreamwidth.org/2299381.

em hotep, Darrin.
@Leucrotta

I dyed my hat green! :D I have no idea what kind of shape it'll be in after it dries, but the color looks *fantastic*! once it's dry, I'll be sewing on the Horde patch, and then I can wear it to Costco with impunity. (that's where I got it and I've been kind of skittish about being challenged for a receipt, though they haven't yet)

I always figured one day I'd drop one of the glass cat food bowls and break it. I didn't figure that one day I'd drop one of the glass bowls *onto* the other glass bowl and break *both* of them at the same time, but that's what happened. XD fortunately, I have a pair of metal bowls that I've been alternating with already, and another pair of more sturdy glass bowls that I bought a while back stashed in the cupboard.

confession, furry 

@noelle you are not the only one. when I was small I hated going to amusement parks and things, because people in "character costumes" would always try to interact with me and it *freaked* me out. I still dislike interacting with them, and will retreat with a fixed smile until I can get away. which is kind of sad--some of the suits I've seen have been *beautiful*. but, just... nope. XD

I have been told that it is #BlackCatAppreciationDay which tbh is every day in this house, I always appreciate my Giant Screaming Purring Love Beast. <3333 Nar.

If I use Mastodon to appreciate ancient Egyptian culture, and a mutual does the same...

Does that mean we have a Toot In Common?

today's task list 

* wait for yardwork to be done
* store
* catboxes
* dishes
* um
* yeah that's about it really

insect death, kitten play-hunting 

so we seem to have developed a ritual where when Spouse leaves for work a moth comes into the house (accidentally so far, but next time??) and then Raziel and I "hunt" it in the living room until Razi eats it. today he mouthed the moth thoroughly, but didn't actually eat it. I praised him anyway. hunter-training is important. *nodnod* #kittenthings

food, sleep 

minor miscalculation... I didn't eat enough before attempting sleep, and the downstairs neighbors started making bacon at 9 pm, and the smell was coming up through the air conditioner, and I realized that I really need to eat something before going to sleep, so now I have, but I'm not sure I'm going to be *able* to sleep because I've had food recently. but I'm tiiiired. ugh. welp, here goes sleep attempt part 2... wish me luck. :P

I'm really enjoying watching the flood of newbies in the Fediverse. It's been a while. :D

I'm living in the forest of my dreams...

kids my days and our wacky music 

rediscovered "Don't Go" by Yazoo the other day, looked the video up on YT, and *dang* it is wonderfully, hilariously goofy.

also reminds me that the first three albums I ever bought (I don't remember the order) were Thompson Twins "Into The Gap," The Cars "Heartbeat City," and Laura Branigan self-titled. I remember almost all of the first two, and can't remember a single song off the last one. XD
