      @murr Geeze. What’s that for?

        Wait. You really can’t edit photo description or tags with the new flickr app?

          @sethclifford I remind myself of exactly this every time I'm tired and just want to sit on the sofa, and he asks me to stay longer to tuck him in. Whatever I want to do can wait a few more minutes while he drives trucks on my knees.

            @clarkgoble The tone-deaf kind of hurts in that.

              @bsag Thanks, looks like she has a couple of days' reprieve. We'll see how she does with a bigger dose of antibiotics.

                @wickedgood Thanks, we hope so, too.

                  @wickedgood She's getting old, and has had some benign growths on her tail for several months. One of them blew up and ruptured -- way gross and just isn't healing, so we may need to remove it to prevent infection from becoming really systemic.

                    Well, there's what I planned to do today (go over to a friend's house and play some board games; had prepped by watching Quarantine Z videos!), and what it appears I will end up doing today (taking one of the dogs to the vet to have her tail amputated). :/

                          Tomorrow is one of those rare days that preschooler is in school and I have the day off. I have about 34 hours of stuff planned for the day. What else should I pack in??

                              @wickedgood I actually really like FS, but it’s so utterly unforgiving. Finally beating a couple of levels that I was stuck on for a very long time was so exhilarating, but I’m usually not up for the punishment required to get there.

                                @wickedgood So far I’m really enjoying that it’s engaging but not aggressive: I can have fun without geeking out about every minute detail and it doesn’t punish me too much if my play isn’t perfect. (I’m looking at you, Frozen Synapse.)

                                  @wickedgood Say, I picked up Skulls of the Shogun this weekend and am having a lot of fun with it. Thanks for the recommendation!
