OMG! I'm listening to Sphere by Michael Crichton, in which the out-of-shape middle aged psychologist is the final girl of an underwater horror. The characters talk by info-dumping to each other, but I was intrigued to find out what was up with the alien sphere. Now, however, that the middle aged white guy has been fully revealed as the lone voice of reason, gently patronising the female and black characters, I'm find it more and more of a chore to carry on with it.

Figured out my face paint for the Halloween dance-out. My side's colours are green and gold, so I was limited in what I did.

The Good Law Project has four days remaining to reach its £30,000 target to challenge the abominable waiting times for trans healthcare in the UK. If they don't pass £30k, they get nothing. Help make this momentous legal action happen!

After spending several months getting rid of most of the ivy in the garden, I really hated ivy. But I have to say, the stretch of it I left is now flowering, and the flowers are *swarming* with bees, hoverflies and other pollinators. Plus I've read that the berries are an important source of calories for the birds over the winter.

Not to mention that the leaves are full of saponins and you can make your own washing liquid out of them (my daughter uses ivy leaves to make laundry liquid.)

Basically for me here in the UK, ivy may be a bit of a menace, but it still deserves to be appreciated as a valuable worker in our native ecosystem. I'm glad I kept the patch, but I'm not going to let it take over the whole garden again

Hey did you get your flu shot yet? Maybe between remaining covid precautions and extra vaccinations we can make another flu lineage go extinct this year! I mean, probably not, but worth a shot!

My pharmacy keeps running out of shots, but I’m on the wait list now.

Ugh, bought "Cats in Space and other places" edited by Bill Fawcett on the recommendation of someone on Tumblr, but it's very typical '70s sci-fi with the attendant sexism. I've read two of the stories so far and both of them have been all 'oh, cats are far superior to women.'

I didn't notice the sexism when I was growing up on '70s SF, but once you start noticing, you can't stop
