The one that said "Every time people ask for book recommendations, be sure to give at least one that fits any axis of 'diversity', because otherwise nobody else will".

By doing this, I've recently become aware that I need to read more non-genre fiction. Or, at least, that I ought to so I can give better recommendations rather than google ones. Trying not to get disheartened by the fact that really, I'm the only one.

Sooo... quick question. The Farsala trilogy by Hilari Bell (which you all ought to read), does that count on my little diversity quota I have in my head? I mean, the main characters are all more or less Iranian, aren't they? I mean, Farsala is clearly Persia, the Hrum are obviously the Romans, and the Suud are... okay, I don't know who they're standing in for.

I have also seriously got to write up my own booklist. I'm so tired of having to google. Need to stop putting that off.

Ana finished her final edit for her writing course... and then accidentally deleted the whole thing when going to copy it. D'oh! Lately she's been going to book club once a week way uptown. She loves it. She loves the kids, loves the group... and really loves that we trusted her to find her way to 86th street on her own, and to get back on her own every week. Trust may be overstating it. I was fraught with anxiety her first week. All I can say is, thank goodness for cell phones! Next week she forgot to bring hers. Naturally.

I had run out of tarragon, so I decided to order some. I like tarragon, and it's a little pricy when you buy it by the tiny jar, so I went ahead and ordered a pound of the stuff.

It, uh, it turns out that a pound of tarragon takes up a little bit more space than I realized. I could stuff a pillow with it!

So now I've got enough tarragon to last me through the apocalypse, and nowhere to store it. Anybody want a few ounces?

If I watch it, I think about it, and the more I think about it the more I think Star Trek doesn't make any sense.

Now, this is the episode where Barclay contacts Voyager. And I know he does contact Voyager, because I happen to like this episode, because I happen to be a fan of Reg Barclay. Also, I think it's adorable that he named his cat Neelix.

They're able to aim the message more or less to Voyager by using a projected flight plan. Except in the very last episode, Voyager cut 5 - 10 years off their trip by using a catapult! (And what, did they just leave that there for unsuspecting ships to wander across and strand themselves with? Gosh, I do hope they saved as much data on the catapult as possible, it will most definitely revolutionize how the Federation travels!) Now, I can get that they can detect the signal from far away... but from 10 years behind them? Really?

This would have been a better show if the people writing it had thought continuity was important.

It's nearly gone now. Somebody in this family (me) has been making an awful lot of chocolate chip pancakes and drinking way more chocolate milk than usual. I must buy more, possibly this weekend.

It's supposed to be spring, but the snow from this morning is still coming down. It'd be all lovely and picturesque if this wasn't the equinox already.

Finally got around to the history I've been putting off. It's not that we haven't been doing history, we've just been more focused on American history (which is less work for me) during all these dreary days.

I feel like I ought to close out some of these tabs. I will later, after the girls are in bed. Jenn's away for the weekend, so that's all on me. She owes me for this.

They showed some guy was near the murder scene by looking at his Metrocard. Or maybe they alibied him by looking at his Metrocard, same difference. (Well, not for the suspect, but for me.) This does work in real life. One of the few false rape reports I know of unraveled when they checked her student Metrocard and found she was way uptown when the alleged rape happened, not on campus on the Island. (Notably, she didn't name a specific individual at that time, and my guess is she was thinking if she just said "that's not him" if they found a reasonable suspect, then nobody would get hurt by her accusation and it would be a victimless crime.)

But, I don't know, it seems so lazy to me, first because at this point any competent murderer has to know that you buy a 2-ride card and ditch it at the end of your crime, just like you wear gloves and change out of the bloody shirt and whatever. Second, because people swap Metrocards all the time, mostly to avoid buying any more unlimiteds than they strictly need. I mostly use a pay-per-ride, because I don't commute, and then if I go somewhere on the weekend or if I'm making more than two trips on a weekday I swap with my mom or with Jenn. Or maybe your best friend's card got bent, so he borrows yours for the day because you're not going anywhere. Or maybe you plan to kill so-and-so and pin it on your slob of a roomie, so you steal their card when they're not looking and put it back later.

It just seems like Castle (and other crime shows set in NYC) pull out Metrocard data a lot more frequently than is warranted, and they don't really consider other, perfectly reasonable possibilities. They're Metrocards. They're not IDs. They're cheap, flimsy, and disposable. You can't build a case on them.

Today has actually been a pretty good day, other than the incessant mockingbird. But that's all right - the sun is shining, and the day is nice and long, and I can feel myself coming out of my midwinter funk.

Also, Jenn was away all weekend, and that meant that I kept having little visitors every night. I look forward to sleeping alone in my own bed tonight.

The girls had a birthday party to get to. Jenn was at a class. First I went up to the Bronx - an arduous journey at the best of times (especially getting off at the very last stop), but made worse by construction delays. Then I had to get back down from the Bronx to pass something off to Jenn on 28th. Then I had to immediately turn around and head back up, and I was still an hour late picking up the girls. (They, in turn, took a full hour to get ready to go - and tried to invite themselves to sleep over in the process!)

The trains were delayed due to construction. The trains were delayed due to train traffic. The trains were delayed due to medical emergencies. At one point, the trains were delayed due to reasons and we sat 15 minutes in the station without any announcement as to why we weren't moving. I had to stand for most of my trip. Not fun. I spent so long getting back to the Island at the end that I lost my transfer. REALLY not fun.

On the plus side, the 78 arrived right freaking on time, and usually that bus is crap. I actually jumped up and down and applauded when I saw it.

I assume everybody knows Terry Pratchett is gone. We really lost him too soon as well. I hate this process of being an adult, and watching all the writers and actors and musicians and other important-to-you people go. At least when it happens to your family and friends, it doesn't happen several times a year, every single year. (Or at least I certainly hope not. Most of us have smaller families and fewer friends than that.)

It's not so bad when you're a kid, because so much of the media you consume is old, by at least a full generation. Your parents and teachers give you books to read and recommend films to watch and so on. By the time you're old enough to be aware of it, lots of those people are already dead, so you're not confronted with that painful aspect of your own mortality.

NO INTERNET. I keep thinking "This is what it was like as a kid", and it was like this when I was a kid. I read constantly as a child because I was so bored. (I read constantly over the past two days as well. Same reason.)

Technician came, said "hi" to Callie who was curiously poking her nose in the door. When I opened the door without actively shooing her (on the grounds that somebody who says "hi kitty" probably doesn't mind too much if a cat happens to exist in her own house) she took two steps in, saw that The Stranger was still there, then bolted halfway across the house and under the nearest bed. Curiosity sure isn't gonna kill her.

I keep thinking she's getting more social, and I've certainly known shyer cats, but then....

The girls helped me clear off the front hall stairs. We never use the front hall, and over the past several months it's become a bit of a disaster, and I certainly couldn't let the tech guy come in clambering over boxes and whatnot.
