And just to prove I haven’t been utterly taken over by the slash fairy…

fannish fun, RL version

Someone painted a slightly crooked smiley-face on the Fordham Road median sometime in the last week. As a Responsible Adult (TM) I keep thinking I should object – how reckless! – but I’d be lying if I said it didn’t earn a smile. Not my work, honest.

On a related note, the “Moriarty was real” written on the exposed-wood wall in the bathrooms? No comment. But I was pleased to see someone had answered my the graffiti with, of all things, “Allonsy!”

Also, I saw my little black squirrel of Mirkwood today: an unusually large squirrel with very dark brown or even black fur that peers down on me from the shadows of a certain tree, and will even pelt me when nuts when he’s in a certain mood. Remind you of anyone, precious? Hadn’t seen him in a while.

    I don't send out cards anymore, but I was drooling over all the pop-up ones Amazon had and wondering if it might not be time to resume the tradition (I decided no).

    Not much help in the Hallmark…

    That's great! Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for the marching, musical cats. LOL
