(At the library again.) The summer trees are all in bloom - clouds of pink and white, with little birds flitting among them.

I saw the mostly white cat again, so he/she hasn't moved after all. But the main consumer(s) of the catfood on the porch now seems to be one or more tabbies; I'm not sure whether the brown tabby and the silver tabby are the same cat, but one is apparently living under the bush by the front steps. So we may have a barn cat again.

At the library again.

I'm pleased to glimpse that one of the local houses that sold recently has had the line of ratty sheltered parking spaces at the rear replaced with an actual backyard. Lawn and stuff.

At the library again. The verse will be unavoidably late; I have it written but getting it here would involve a zip drive and negotiating the library wifi with my laptop.

Very hot. We nonetheless went and purchased groceries, including canned food for the new (used) dog. The car's external thermometer said 96, the thing under the garage eave said 104. I managed to get to sleep. The nearest house for sale had a large icecream truck parked in front of it, I suspect to try to attract visitors to the open house.

(At the library again.) The last box had been unpacked. It was a very busy night, but I managed to get all the Fleshlights on display where customers can see them. So at dawn I put a box out the back door ... badly startling a Himalayan cat who had been browsing the alleyway. I've seen him or her before, fleeing around the corner when I open the front door to check whether there is any traffic on El Camino. Regrettably, His or Her Floofy Highness cannot be lured into the store.

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

At the library again. This week's merchandise delivery is now down to one box, but I truly don't know where whatever's in that box is going to go. I worked wonders fitting in what I unpacked last night and some of what had been left hopelessly lying around behind the counter. Customers ... buy stuff!

I hiked to the high-tech shoe store to replace my high-tech innersoles. I could see the hills, but there was a peculiar blue-grey haze in the air. Unable to receive e-mails, I probably chose the one bad air day in the week for the exertion. However, feet are now good for another year.

I'm getting a lot of depressing books read. Subjects have included:

* America's history of rotten elections
* American college athletes raping women and being indulged in the habit
* An expert in dogs trying to figure out how humans can reawaken their sense of smell (actually I read that one in bed; it's soporific)
* The AIDS battle, revisited by a different gay journalist
* The downfall of the Wehrmacht in 1943; I may abandon this one
* Oh, and one of the Frank Miller Sin City graphic novels

Managed to get the verse posted by seizing the moment when we briefly had internet - and that was pretty much it. No internet since (and no chance to jump on at work). So I'm at the public library right now. I'll take a pic of the troll to mark the event.

Busy day!

holy shit

Last night I was like, nah, you're seeing things, wishful thinking, etc, but after treatment #2? The cords really ARE shrinking, dramatically so.

"Stops progressing" would have been a good outcome. Actual reversal happens in a minority of cases, almost always in patients who treat it very early. I'm SO FUCKING GLAD I insisted on going as aggressive as possible. Even if I wind up with more chronic pain out of it, I'll keep use of my hands for a fuck of a lot longer, thank ANYTHING THAT WAS LISTENING

First dose of radiation done, out of five (once per day this week). Aside from 20 minutes of "shitting cockgoblin fuckmuppet" pain levels just now, which did die down to just a slightly elevated from normal "ow ow ow ow ow", it was fairly uneventful! Holding the position required for the treatment is worse than the actual treatment, which is basically "the machine goes click whirr for 45 seconds".

So curious to see what happens in six weeks. The way this works, you see, is by activating all the dormant spots so the second round can nuke them in 12 weeks...

A customer told me the rival place near the Lawrence Expressway, a barnlike freestanding structure that for a while was painted pink (now back to cream) and that rebranded itself as a gay and bi cruising spot after the financial crash, had closed. I found no evidence of that, but I'm now told they are now closing at 2:00. Leaving us as the only all-night place.
