It’s now 9:45 am. I’m working from 11 to 7 today and so I have to hustle off to the shower in 15 minutes, so I’m going to have to make this quick.
Today is the Presidential election. I’m terrified that Trump will win again. I mean, we survived the last four years, and Trump is guided by his id more than either of the egos, so I don’t know if the next four would *necessarily* be worse, but I was really hoping they’d, you know, be better.
When I get off work tonight, the polls on the east coast will already be closed and preliminary results will be coming in. So I’m going to close most of my tabs that have anyone talking about current events on them, which leaves me with, um, fiction books, longform articles and old YouTube videos, I think.
I was going to start my content creator topic tonight, but looking at their current videos would be a spoiler, so maybe I’ll do some book blogging. I don’t know yet, but I’ll see what I do once I get there.
Will I make it to 8 posts tonight? Doubtful, but, once again, I’ll try.
A quick Gratuitous Amazon Link. This was the first book in the Fantastic Strangelings Book Club: Follow me to Ground, by Sue Rainsford. This one is also excellent, but creepy. Ada is not human. She and her father are some kind of mystical constructs that use a patch of dirt, called Ground, to heal the local villagers of their illnesses. Everything is going well enough, but then Ada falls in love with a villager named Samson. This link is the hard copy.
