Last week I bought flowers. They brightened my day, they brightened Kathleen’s day, and now I hope they can brighten yours too.
Well, this is gross.
From SFWA: #DisneyMustPay Alan Dean Foster:
Disney’s argument is that they have purchased the rights but not the obligations of the contract. In other words, they believe they have the right to publish work, but are not obligated to pay the writer no matter what the contract says.
I’m not a lawyer, but, uh, that doesn’t sound right to me. (Neither does Disney’s wish to have Mr. Foster sign a non-disclosure agreement before negotiations even start.)
In this David vs. Goliath fight, I’m on David’s side.
Well. That took a bit of a turn. Last week I went for a November bike ride. Today…
I can’t recall ever going for a bike ride in November before, but today I went 10 km after work, before the sun set.
I got home just in time to set my camera up on the deck, on the tripod, and snap 200+ frames for a quick timelapse of the sunset.
I’ve only just today heard about the superstition that saying “Rabbit rabbit” on the first day of the month brings luck. How long were you planning to keep this from me?
Does it count if there’s a chubby bunny chillin’ in your yard for a few hours on the 1st?
On this windy Halloween evening in this pandemic year, I handed out candy using tongs and wearing a mask. Our Halloweeners:
- a little wee lion
- a brown bear
- an angel
- what appeared to be an Ewok in a parka
- a gangster
- a goth
- a Stormtrooper
- a crocodile
- a vampire
- a nurse
- a little wee dinosaur who told me “Habby Ween!” over and over
- a zombie
- and a princess in pyjamas
…for a total of 13.
Weirdly, that’s four more than we had last year. I don’t know what that might mean.
There was a bit of fog this morning.
And of course, fog + cold = hoarfrost. Not much, but a little bit.
And if not, why not?
