Weather Weirdness

A week ago today, we had frost everywhere. Today the highs are going to be in the 80s and 90s. California. [eyerolls]

Also too, I hate loathe and despise daylight savings time with a fiery passion. If I was in charge, it'd be abolished.

Because it's Superb Owl Sunday, and I just remembered, here is a very superb burrowing owl. Courtesy of Emily, from the San Diego River:

I voted

Paul voted. Kitty voted. Emily's voting in San Diego now, but I'm sure she'll have voted by the end of today.

Now all we can do is wait and hope for the best.

Something Awesome

It's beastly hot out, and will be hotter tomorrow.

On the other hand, here is something awesome, a movie-style trailer for Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice, made by a very talented fan called bironic. Link to Ann Leckie's blog post with the video. If you can, watch with sound on; the music is perfect, too.

Embossed velvet project
