But there's No Such Thing as global warming.
Yesterday was the usual busy day. I went out to WickedMart in the morning, as usual, and was treated to a display of staggering rudeness in the greeting card aisle. Long story short: a woman who was blocking the aisle with her cart actually stepped directly in front of me, blocking my access to the section I wanted when I parked my cart farther down the aisle (giving her plenty of room to leave) and stepped around her and her cart. The cow. Even if we were after the exact same card, it's not like they didn't have multiples.
I hate people so much. So, so much.
The rest of the day was chores: writing checks for myself and my grandmother, dishes, laundry, mowing the lawn -- and then watching the leaves fall to neatly cover the newly-bare sections.
Today, I got up early, walked the dog, scooped the litter box upstairs and emptied the little trash can I keep next to it, then scrubbed the rug in the library with bleach water because Kethri started using it for a litter box again this past week (which I discovered when I sat down at the desk in there to write checks), then, just in keeping with the theme of the morning, I scrubbed the toilet, too. (It needed it, anyway.) I also finally went down into the basement and changed the furnace filter, which has been on my list to do for the last month. I don't know why I had such a mental block about it, but I did. But it's done now, so I'll be ready to turn the furnace on at the end of the week (the long range forecast is calling for the high temperature to be only 60° next Saturday).
And then I sat down at my desk to work on eBay stuff, and there I stayed for hours. I was writing up item descriptions ahead of time because I often don't get to relisting unsold items for the length of time that the listings remain available on eBay, and it's a pain in the ass to have to rewrite the descriptions every time I try to list something. So that took me a couple of hours, then it took me another hour to list ten or a dozen items. It used to be a relatively simple procedure to put things up. Now it's a pain in the ass, but at least being able to copy-and-paste the descriptions shortened that process a bit, even if eBay's system screwed up my HTML.
Kethri is perched on a stack of boxes next to me blatting that she wants her dinner. She started half an hour ago. She won't get fed for another hour. Nimue used to do the same thing, and it was one of the reasons I started going out for dinner a couple of times a week all those years ago, because if it wasn't Nimue, it was Cruiser, and I couldn't take the noise. Kethri only just started doing it recently, but it's no less annoying. Yesterday, I actually chucked her out of the room and shut the door to get a little peace.
I feel kind of discombobulated this afternoon. I'm a bit sleepy, probably in part because of the weather. I'm sure the weather is contributing to the discombobulation, too, because it's ridiculously hot for the end of September -- it's almost 90°. In western New York.
I would really like to order a pizza for supper rather than cooking, but it'd cost me $20. On the one hand, that's bit bit much. On the other, I'd get four meals out of it. Bleah.
I won't be watching Star Trek Discovery this evening. I'll catch it later in the week; perhaps tomorrow evening. 9:00 is too late for me, anymore; I can't stay up until 10:00 or later and still get up at 5:00.
