Here’s something a little less serious and maybe a little more humorous. My Facebook memories for November 18th from 2012 through to 2017.
Edified by My Cat
Edified by my cat. She was banging at the deck door where the neighbor’s cat stood mocking her silently. My kitty was banging the door in an attempt to tear it off its hinges. The other cat just sat there all Charlie Chaplin-like. So I ran to the deck with a toy light saber in hand, opened the door, and chased the interloper away. My cat followed me out peering defiantly in to the darkness in a posture akin to one held by someone saying to themselves, “That’s what I thought.” She followed me back in. I sat down with my laptop to continue working. Then she jumped up on my computer, looked at the deck door, looked at me, back at the deck door and then hissed. She snuggled me a minute as if to say “You done good” (my cat has terrible grammar).
I had the weirdest dream last night. Picture this, Mr. Freud. A subtle, in so far as I can tell, unwritten Radiohead song (strong acoustic and drum presence) playing in the background. I am a female, East-Indian physics student at a university during the Apocalypse, e.g. riots, chaos, etc. During one of the stranger conversations I had with my female colleagues I quoted some fictitious physicist saying, “Purity in the theories of physics is not limited by physics but by our DNA.”
Is that what it’s like for females all of the time?
Losing My Religion
Teaching my kids catechism tonight. My son Alec observes the following during the group conversation:
Me: yes Alec?
Alec: [alluding to a previous discussion we had concerning the uncertainty of “Heaven’s direction” (90 degrees up from wherever you happen to be standing on Earth) making the direction of Heaven to an Australian the complete opposite to that of a Canadian] you know how all our “ups” are different but everyone’s “down” leads to the same place?
Alec: we at least know where one place is…
