    EEYUP. it was really chilly by (super wimpy ngl) california standards for a while too (and we even got a bit of hail at one point, which is very rare here), but it's settled to mostly upper 40s at the lowest--i think it's in the low-to-mid 50s rn--so...that's better at least? still sick of the downpours, though. >:/ (and a little scared bc i live in an area where landslides are uh. very possible. and they have happened. and i am a paranoid fuck so i am vaguely convinced that one will happen while i'm there and i will die or something, idk. BUT THAT IS MOSTLY ANXIETY BULLSHIT.)

    either way, fully agreed that Weather Be Fucked

    more spooky reddit. as usual with spooky stories, i wish people would stop shitting up the thread with hypnagogic hallucinations. if you woke up, saw the scary thing, and fell back asleep, you dreamed it. you would not fall asleep with a monster standing beside your bed; you weren't really awake to begin with.

    and having dreams about your elderly grandparents dying is not prophetic. it's a perfectly understandable worry playing out in your mind's eye. it happens to a lot of people. you're not psychic.

    the baby gargoyle in the tree was great. i want to hear more about that one.

    my face holes are dribbly and i slept all day and all i want to do is go back to bed... so i fully expect that when i do, i'll find myself unable to sleep. because that's just how life goes.

    anyway, the weather could ease up any time it likes. being shut indoors for so long is not good for my allergies or my brain. i don't think i've been outside except for snow/ice maintenance activities or doctor's appointments since november. and i didn't expect march to actually be spring, i've lived in minnesota all my life and i'm not delusional, but i was expecting it to be kinda slushy and melty around now, not a black-ice deep freeze. this is just depressing.

    and i'm certain my greenhouse plants are all completely dead now. including my big palm tree that i've had for years. every time i think about it i want to cry.

    It's also still snowy (!!) up here in Vancouver. It's starting to thaw out a bit, but there's still a lot of snow on the ground.

    this is hella belated but his idea was actually to lure in creepos, he was just really bad at choosing actually creepy dudes because he was under the impression that All Men Are Like That

    note for later

    some noble: it makes me sick to see a peasant pretending to be a lord, and all of you nodding like fools!
    casimir, curiously: are you going to throw up?
    some noble: you heard me.
    casimir, to a servant: get this man a bucket.
    some noble: you mock now, but --
    casimir: you're excused. go take care of your stomach thing, dude, stop interrupting the meeting.
    some noble: *flounces*
    casimir: get better soon! right, is anyone else feeling ooky, or can we talk about flood relief now?

    "in like a lion, out like a lamb" is a british saying. in minnesota, it should be "in like a wendigo, out like a yeti." hopefully the wendigo stage is over now and instead of snot-crystallizing black-ice cold and antarctic wind chill we'll have mere cold and a lot of snow.

    it snowed hard last night, and today the sky is cloudless and intensely blue. the world is white and gray and azure, and very bright. it's beautiful.

    it's so much easier to appreciate it, knowing that by the end of the week it'll be raining, and snowdrops and crocuses beginning to poke through the crust and the slush.
