Snap peas are flowering! Woo!
An Indigenous Peoples' History of the US
Dunbar-Ortiz frequently makes a point of comparing "the historical annals of the US Army" to actual events.
Comparing my memories of the surprisingly small pyramid at Goyathlay/Geronimo's grave, the dusty plaques at the location, and the assorted tourist guide blurbs to even 15 minutes research of the history is stunning in the blatant and subtle propaganda it betrays.
Dead headed an unruly and untended rosebush full of earwigs at the in-laws. Still like 4 buds for every bloom I cut off. That'll be fun in a month.
Rescued some standouts for #florespondence
Mention of animal death, picture of a tree
You know that video where they take a hawk out in this enormous field, and immediately upon release it flies the opposite direction and gets completely atomized by a large semi on the highway that was unseen until that point?
Just launched a paper plane off the top of the sketchy stairway behind the mining building, and the breeze looped it right around into a branch a good 50 feet up.
C'est la vie
Lots of driving this weekend. Very scenic, at least.

Did actually manage to get lost. Took a wrong turn out of that one little park.
Found lots of daffodils, a tree inside a tree, and some beauties by a hydrant. #florespondence
Pausing halfway to the library for a panicked cram session to get a good shot #florespondence
RTOS Class Update
Professor's stories are frequently questionable.
Pictured: Testing a receiver by strapping it to the top of his car while configured to beep loudly whenever it got a hit. Note that he also set it up with GPS so he could just download a map later, he just didn't think about what slowly cruising around a residential neighborhood with a beeping box would look like.
PHIL 103 update
MacKinnon: Pornography™️ is bad because it encourages harms x, y, and z.
MacKinnon, 6 pages into the 10 page reading: oh, and by Pornography™️, we mean porn that shows acts x, y, and z. Everything else is erotica

Tenant in my trash succulents
Doing some repotting and closer than usual checks while watering today.
I've got a little heart-shaped crystal ashtray thing from the dollar store I use as a drip tray when watering the hanging pots inside.
Found a friend inside it today. He didn't appreciate the movement or the water. He's been doing patrols up and down the long stems for the last couple minutes.
Helps prevent any gnats, I suppose
This is my web drip. It keeps me happily sedated.
