All I have here is the Berkeley Law magazine, which just came in the mail. It will have to do in lieu of a book.
“It combined two things I really care about: ensuring copyright law doesn’t block otherwise legitimate fair uses, and preserving video games I grew up playing,”
It makes me happy to know that quoting this quote is within the realm of fair use, qua the quote itself, so the quotee is not going to be mad at me if he googles his quote one day to see if anyone is discussing its intellectual merits and finds it plopped on a cupcake, cats, and romance novel blarg. Actually it’s more of a cats, angry poetry, and weird flash blog these days, isn’t it? Hmm. How would you label this mess? I gave up as you can see from my relatively recently updated tagline. Am I allowed to use two ly-adjectives in a row? Can I haz ruling?
What the article is actually about, if anyone cares, is preserving deactivated video games. Bet you never thought about that. Well, other people have. That’s why they’re in law school and you’re not, pffft.
I wonder what happened to that old Ladybug game my mommy used to play. It was one of the first up. I’ll never forget the annoying chomp chomp chomp sound as the bugs nommed up all the things.
That’s all. 🐞🐞🐞

The mischief-maker chuckled. This particular escapade he called “the carrot and the shtick” — a treat, a trick, a prize, and then an avalanche of troubles.
“Bwahahaha!” His shoulders shook with mirth. How he loved playing these gory games on unsuspecting victims who fell for it every time. They were always so trusting!
He knew he was supposed to help these poor people, not consider them his opponents, but he was weak, and that wasn’t his fault. He blamed his father, who had hardly paid any attention to him and let him play video games all day and night. Now, each new call for assistance was a chance to slay another dragon in disguise!
There came a knock, and another mischief-maker stood in the doorway with an identical shine in her eyes.
“Hey, friend, ready for lunch?”
The two naughty cohorts sauntered off, chattering and giggling about their morning’s work, as they passed by their departmental sign:
Found here (via Sparks).
I try to follow poasting rules, I really do, but to me pet peeves are like potato chips: you can’t pick just one! Maybe I can limit the list to my top 5. We shall see.
1. Rude, aggressive, honking drivers. This includes tailgaters, idiots who must zoom around you only to exit, jerks who honk at you to turn right on red when it isn’t safe, etc.
2. People who wear too much perfume. 🤮
3. Disgusting selfish pigs who litter, and in particular the numpties who throw trash on the ground when the bins are right there. This, I do not understand at all and it infuriates me. 🤬
4. Any computer program or website that loads the least bit slowly just to drive me out of my freaking mind!
5. People who are going to compare items 4 and 1. Gahhh! I hate that!
Here is the next set of pics for City Sonnet’s October photo challenge in collage form, my new artistic mode.
To tell you all a secret, I’m not having as much fun with these as I was earlier in the month. A couple main issues. One, I’m not a Real Photographer like some of you, and so I’ve run out of currently stockpiled pics, which means I am reduced to doing things such as snapping photos of apples in Target like a freakazoid. Two, I’ve also been going through the photo scrapbooks I made when the girls were little and taking crappy pics of pics with glare on them and cropping out ex family. Three, google photos won’t allow me to collage in my own order. No matter in which order I choose the photos, it collages them its own way. Annoy!
I have a bunch of rants on standby, but idk if I should poast them and ruin the light and fluffy image I’ve so carefully cultivated and nurtured lately. Cupcakes and kittens 4ever! 🐱💕🌸

It’s not an emergency but… just when I’ve gone out of my way to explicitly praise the WordPress app several times here and in comments to fellow bloggers, it’s quit working properly. I can still poast just fine, which is the most important thing, since peeps would surely have the big sads without their fix of meeee, but my reader is all screwed up.
Here’s the haps. I open it up and get a few dozen new poasts, like from the past hour. All good. Then it leaps to poasts from 12 hours ago with nothing in between! If I close out and return, I may get a few randoms from the missing hours, out of order, but… ughhh. Yesterday I didn’t get the prompt poasts, but luckily someone had a story with them all in it, so I saved that. Today I can only find the one I used in my first line. I’m missing Scott’s and Fandango’s and Sheryl’s and others.
DO NOT LIKE. Bad app is bad.
