*me whispering to date when Grond comes on screen* that's grond

sneaking around and washing the stove knobs/control panel while @wintersonata snoozes as a hilarious prank

maybe instead of some cheese toast I'll just shove feta unto my mouth and eat bread

the back basement steps are still rotted and partly collapsed, and around the five foot high narrow corridor at the base of it a sharp right turn leads to a dim light from the obscured windows at ground floor and a surprisingly wide expanse of undisturbed cobwebs.

But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts.

@wintersonata Koala, waiting for me on the porch when I sneak out onto it for some fresh air

@wintersonata my body "ah, our familiar bed in its familiar context with its much better screens."

also my body: "no, I'm pretty sure you set this 5:45 wake up call"

big midsummer energy

a gentle morning cascade on tap, as our current plan is for me to get up at 8, waking @wintersonata at 8:15, who will wake her mother at 8:30. I can foresee no possible problems with this

not exhausting in and of itself, but more exhausting to modulate my parents' desire to crab at things unremarkable to me except when I'm very tired, like my mother-in-law asking me questions about my preferences or knowledge by addressing her question directly to @wintersonata as if I weren't in the room

it's nice that my family (minus my brother) and @wintersonata's mom can travel together, although the collision of ask-guess cultures is hilarious and exhausting.

I don't know who needs to hear this right now, but *emits a shrill noise only perceivable by dogs*

Tusky defeated my attempts to do meme-appropriate typos, hélas!

Factoid actually statistical error. Most Québécois French words cause zero confusion. Spiders Grégoire, who lives in cave and coins 10,000 confusing words per day, is an outlier and should not have been counted.

anyway, I checked the list of Canadian holidays, but apparently it's a "Quebec national" holiday weekend this weekend, RIP us trying to leave town tomorrow

guess the Sabbath's coming up, as I've seen more shtreimels in the last hour or so than the rest of my life combined

all day, my mom was humblebragging about how much of an adventurous eater she is (compared to my in laws) so it was fun to see her recoil when I pointed this out

I have no photos of accidentally letting it into the house, which has staircases at both ends, and spending five minutes trying to shepherd her back out the back door

The homeshare owner's Weimaraner is suspicious and borky but does OK with diminished eye contact
