The Mosquito Magnet is working really well. They say that to break the breeding cycle, running it continuously for 4-6 weeks should be enough. Even in just a single night, we've already caught a few dozen mosquitoes, so I feel pretty good about the purchase. Especially given that I have a bite on the middle knuckle of my left forefinger and the swelling from the bite is making the joint seize and really hurt. Bah.

Jet ate nothing, yesterday, until dinner time, and then he scarfed, whole, two entire slices of pizza. Normally he'll peel off the pepperoni to eat first, and then ignore the rest.

They're actually hired by the Unspoken Name, because of his love of the now-dead Adrienne. The spoken goal is to destroy the Ascended, but that allows the Magic to come back, too...

  • See You In Four Months

    Yesterday, at 4 am, we all got up and took Jet to DIA to deliver him to American Airlines and send him on his way. There are three things I really…

  • Turning Around

    That's the easiest show and tell of the turn around. That and that my sleep went from averaging 6 hours a night to averaging a bit under 8.…
