  1. if it is thriller genre though i will probably pass
  2. between sci-fi novellas, i read Convenience Store Woman (translated from Japanese. It is odd I liked it
  3. oh no, such a change of plans for sil and family sweet cake, putting shredded/grated zucchini in helps keep the cake moist without adding flavour - and uses up some zucchini (like grated raw carrot for carrot cake) often used with chocolate so that there is some flavour the pineapple and walnut cover that, on account of i didn't have choc. on hand

  8. it is Arrrghust days of dolorous torpor so i googled "worst songs ever" and got some that I'd forgotten about from the 80's and i like them now back then i didn't have access to music videos. new ear worm too. how are you, everyone
  9. ditto to the solstice walk the place is life-affirming
