Hatred and Hermitage

Weekly Update

I hate the cold. I mean it. If cold weather had a face, I would never stop punching it. It’s been varying shades of -20 to -30 Celsius here, with the wind chill, though it finally broke this week. There have to be blogs where people just complain about the weather. This isn’t really about the weather. The freezing isn’t such a big deal, I don’t spend that much time outside.

Flat Surface Blues

I have a love-hate relationship with flat surfaces. I love putting things on them. I will stack objects on top of objects if necessary. I love accumulating them, because more flat surfaces means more places to put things. Now that I don’t have cats, it also means that those objects can be expected to go unmolested (rather than being unceremoniously dumped on the floor). The problem is that I do seem to hate tidying flat surfaces, so while everything has a place, sometimes that place is under a bunch of other shit.
