Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Various odd bits to discuss.

Saturday was, for here, rather humid. Odd, since we live in a desert. Even odder, around 9PM the heavens opened up, what with thunder, lightning, and heavy rain, that lasted for about an hour. Nice for the garden. Warm rain, too.

Sunday morning, I overslept; somehow the alarm clock switch was off. This meant that I didn't get out to work until much later than I'd intended. This meant that I didn't get home from work until about 9PM. Sucks. However, I did see something interesting out our window in the late morning. A hummingbird landed on the tree limb just outside our bedroom window; this isn't odd. Then, the bird decided to come take a closer look at me, and flew up to the hole in the screen that Sirius tore, years back, and we haven't yet repaired. When the hummingbird realized that the hole was backed by a window, he flew off. I wonder what I looked like to him?

When I finally did get home, and ate, we sat down and finished the Battlestar Galactica disc from Netflix. Good stuff. I'm impatient about the arrival of the next disc.
