Who can't be more than four months old. I have no idea what she's doing away from her mama, living on a street with buses passing by every 15 minutes, buses that terrify her.

The ASPCA van is going to be in the area tomorrow, but alas, I couldn't find her. I'll take a look again this week, and if I see her, I'll feed her and grab her up a little sooner to get fixed. (I'm not keeping her, geez, but I will see if I can pawn her off on a neighbor. Otherwise I will put up some signs, as it's even odds that somebody lost her. She's skittish, but she's definitely not feral.)

On the feral front, our porch cat, Lola, has been acting odder than usual lately. She's always been more semi-feral than true feral, but now she follows me around (from a safe distance) and creeps closer when I'm interacting with other cats, as though to observe. I've had cats follow me around before, but they were all tame. I do not quite know what to make of this. I'm working somewhat haphazardly on reducing her flight distance. I have no idea what I plan to do once it's sufficiently reduced, but it passes the time.

Three days in a row they predicted thunderstorms, three days in a row we got bupkis.

Earlier today it said we were under a heat advisory until Wednesday at 6, now it's lasting until Thursday at 8. We're also under an air quality advisory, and Ana has track tomorrow.

God damn it.

We went to the pool today (special late hours, probably because of the aforementioned heat advisory), stayed there the entire afternoon. OMG the kids are exhausting. (But did they have the decency to get nicely tuckered out? No, no they did not.)

The eggs were a little older than I'd like, so I tested them in some cold water before cracking to make sure they didn't float. They can still be bad even if they don't float, but the odds are lower.

And here I am, cracking eggs into a separate bowl (you crack a rotten egg into your cake batter just once and that is a mistake you will never make again) when one makes a bid for freedom and starts rolling off the counter.

Like a fool, I moved forward to catch it, it cracked right on my thigh and - yup, that was a bad one. Of all the rotten luck.

Now, as this was going on I was also trying to chivvy Ana up for breakfast. So when she hears me transition suddenly from "C'mon, Ana, you gotta take your inhaler!" to "OH GOD DAMN IT!" she bolts up out of bed and goes "What did I do????"

"Oh, uh, this wasn't you honey, this was the egg."

But I guess there's a silver lining here, in that one she shot out of bed she didn't get back in!

I don't get it. The PKK has been active pretty much my entire life. Turkey isn't going to forget that just because they've got ISIS knocking at the door. I know we say the enemy of your enemy is your friend, but in real life terms sharing an enemy doesn't actually make us all one big happy family. It makes us, at best, a highly dysfunctional family "celebrating" the world's shittiest Thanksgiving.

Sometimes I look at current events, and I'm reminded of the popular conception of WWI. (No surprise there, given that a. we're now at 100 years since the start of the war and b. an insane amount of shit is going on that probably relates to how the borders were redrawn at the end of that conflict.) People talk about WWI, and the image in your mind is that the world's population just kinda sleepwalked fatalistically into war because they couldn't quite summon the energy to hop off the tracks. This probably isn't true, but that's the picture. In that view of history, they must have been almost grateful when war was declared, because at least they didn't have to wait anymore.

So I look at current events, and it's the same thing. ISIS murders people in Turkey. In retaliation, the PKK kills two soldiers, so Turkey bombs them right back, and at every step I'm sitting there going "You people know how stupid this is, right? Seriously, how is this supposed to help?"

I screwed that up big time, and I think I know what I did wrong and am not asking for advice. (It WAS pretty interesting, though. Opened it up to burp it, and it started bubbling out all over me like a shaken soda. So I moved to the sink, and then found that I couldn't push down the grated squash with my ceramic knife, there was too much pressure in the brine underneath.)

But yeah. Dumped the whole thing out. Jenn wants me to pickle some beets. I may do that, or I may pickle some turnips. With mint.

But this is not why I am posting. I am posting to share this: Gul Dukat pictures + Zapp Brannigan quotes. I haven't read the news yet, and I have no other links of any interest, but I just couldn't wait until the morning to share that.

(Well, okay, there may be ONE more link: Long Before Trees Overtook the Land, Earth Was Covered by Giant Mushrooms)

It's just fun!

So I've got one set of garlicky dill pickles, and one set of dill squash pickles with no garlic, and one set of spicy dill pickles with a little garlic, and some relish which I'm not sure will turn out, and a set of experimental pickles with ginger and basil and cilantro. (If you only need a little basil, is it stealing to rummage around in the basket and take some leaves that have fallen rather than pay $4 for the entire bunch? I don't really care, because that's what I did, but....)

So I'm trying to work out what I'll do with this surfeit of pickles, and I found this. Now, that sounds like a good idea!

(And pretty soon, I'm gonna make me some lox.)

We've really had a cool, wet summer. I'd be happier about this except that several years ago I read an article predicting that the melting ice at the North Pole could lead to cool, wet summers for the Northeast, and then that's what we got. So good job, scientist, that's a great prediction, but now temperate weather in summer reminds me that GLOBAL WARMING IS GONNA KILL US ALL and I can't be too happy about it.

At any rate, we're in the 90s today, which means a heat advisory, so first I told my mom that I wanted Eva out of the house and somewhere air conditioned for her health, and then I went and told Eva the same thing about my mom (which somewhat more honesty, I will admit), and then they both went to the Met with Ana, so I have the house to myself!

...I ended up napping. What a waste.

In retrospect, I should've gone to The Strand or something. But! It's gonna be equally hot tomorrow, and Jenn's gonna be home, so if I clean the kitchen now and fold the laundry I should have enough goodwill piled up to spring this on her! (And Eva can go to the library tomorrow, and Ana can do whatever the heck she likes.)

Oh, in other news, LJ is running a survey on how to improve the site. And you know, the number 1 thing that could improve LJ is all the users who left coming back, but that's not a change they can actually effect.... Well, fill out the survey anyway.

I have lately been building up my stock of Butterfly Gold dishes. My sister thinks I am crazy obsessed. Nothing could be further from the truth (although I do intend to get a pair of these mugs for the girls, just because I think they'll enjoy them), and as proof, I offer this interview (with photos) of somebody who really DOES have a large collection of vintage Pyrex.

I found that when trying to figure out if I could put my casserole dishes with lids in the oven, or if the lids weren't oven safe. The answer I got is that vintage Pyrex really is oven safe, but after a certain date it's not so much. (They changed the manufacturing process, and newer Pyrex explodes with alarming frequency. The company says that only happens when not used properly, but....) Sadly, I don't know when my particular dishes were made (because Butterfly Gold spans both the "safe" and "not safe" periods) and also, lids are often sold to match items they weren't sold with. So... not so helpful, and if I stick my casserole dishes in the oven I guess I'll use foil?
