A coworker told me she just got a phone alert saying simply “EXPECT A BLACK SKY AT NOON TOMORROW” with no further information. Not a text, one of those like a severe weather or amber alert that makes you click out of before you can do anything again. So, if the world doesn’t end tomorrow, I think I’ll be a little disappointed.

Four days 'til March, and there're still people hereabouts with their Christmas lights up. I don't get it.

You don't get lazy people?

I'm not making a judgement btw.  If I was the kind of person that put up Christmas lights, I'd never take them down, because I'd just have to put them up again later.  Same reason I don't shower or wash my clothes.

Here's the clencher: are the lights on or off? If they're off, maybe they've forgotten or something, but they're on, that's a whole other level. I mean we just put our Christmas stuff away a few weeks ago because my wife likes the fake tree more than she likes having space to walk around in the living room, so I am also not judging.

But these are the details that matter!

Two people got stuck in the elevator here at the university library tonight. Maintenance was slow to respond as they were preoccupied with a FIRE elsewhere on campus.‬ Pretty normal and nice night.

I've got a budding young electrician in the house.   The lights don't ever come down, but the colors do change with the season.  The Easter lights are getting swapped in soon.  It makes him happy, and frankly it is cheerful.  There are worse things for a pre-teen to be preoccupied with.

Also, I live in a fairly slapdash neighborhood where anything goes lawn- or house-decoration-wise, and we're far from the strangest (that award goes to the life-sized white lawn tiger, you see...).  No neighborhood association here!

The most interesting house I ever lived in was undoubtedly my second. I don't know how old I was when the family moved in, but I attended kindergarten while there. It was a two-storey house, with the stairwell leading upstairs concealed behind a hinged bookcase. It was also a very old house; it had no indoor plumbing, so to bathe and do our dirty business, we had to go out to an adjacent cabin which housed a bathtub and a few toilet stalls; birds had also made nests in holes bored through the exterior walls near the roof.

One of the few happy memories I have of my father was when we were living there. There were woods surrounding the neighbourhood, and one day he and I went for a walk. We found a broken hockey stick and a wicker box during our trek; the latter we took home with us and kept audio cassettes in. We also came across a car wreck wrapped around a tree; I couldn't say how long it had been there, but I'd venture quite a while.

The family lived there a couple years. Then we were forced to move by our landlord, who then demolished the aged property.

I really wish I could revisit that old house. Too bad there isn't a Wayback Machine for physical locations.

I tried thinking about ideas for an episode 9 edit but all I ended up with was this lousy meme:
