October 5--Laugh on Demand

I can't think of a good reason why I forgot to make an entry last night, so I'll blame it on the zombie apocalypse.

I had interesting dreams, that included a bit of the latest evaluation recommendations for sepsis (passive leg raise), and woke up refreshed at 5 am. The cats were waiting patiently, and were rewarded with treats. After the treats were done and coffee made, Mook followed me into the bathroom, while Chocko went back to sleep on top of Malida.

I might have mentioned that I wrote a letter of complaint to my credit union week before last, having to do with their inability to replace one of our ATM cards for at least three weeks. "Nothing we can do." I'm not much of a letter writer, but I hate "nothing we can do," so I wrote the CEO. She wrote back and very cleverly said "nothing we can do" in a way that made it sound like they were doing everything possible. She noted that although that probably wouldn't mollify me, she was throwing in some gift cards for iTunes and Starbucks, which actually did mollify me. Ok, we aren't changing credit unions. Yet.

And what a wonderful word is "mollify". I had to look it up to see where it came from. It is from the Latin, meaning to make soft or supple. "These gift cards should soften him up good, eh?"

I'm almost done with the seven day black and white challenge. One more day after this. One of the great things about participating in it, is that it got me to look at things with my photographic eye again. I recall when I was first interested in photography, I looked at everything as a potential photograph.


Not the first time I have photographed this pig. He sits in front of the fireplace, giving everyone the stink eye.

The other day I posted a picture of a slice of limoncello cake, in black and white. Someone said it looked creepy. I was going for sinister, so I was kind of pleased.
