This weekend we managed to have a rare combination of nice weather, time and energy, so I could do gardening. Of all chores it's the most annoying because it always seems to be nice when I'm busy or don't have the energy, and as soon as it's a good time to garden it's blowing a gale or raining. But yesterday was good and my garden now has fewer weeds, which is always an improvement.

After that I spent the afternoon in the traditional manner of Sunday afternoons when it's nice weather: lazing around reading.

Missy is an idiot. She's an intelligent hamster, but useless at finding food. Hamsters are supposed to be good at finding food using their sense of smell, which is really good. She can't find food when it's right under her nose - she just looks in places where she's used to finding it. Then when she does find it, after I've hidden it among her toys, she sticks it in the sofa. I dread to think how much food is in there.

My hoover died, so I bought a new one. It took me forever to get it out of the box. I ended up having to open it at both ends, remove the vast amount of cardboard that wasn't doing anything (except preventing me from getting the hoover out) and then managed to pull it out. At one point I thought I was going to have to cut the box vertically. I piled the cardboard up, as I thought Missy would like something new to investigate. But she wasn't interested. She's quite keen on the hoover box, though.

My RSS feeds went from silence about LJ to lots of drama the past few days. I still much prefer commenting on LJ because the email notifications tell you the post title in the subject, unlike on Dreamwidth. But if anyone has strong feelings about preferring me to comment on DW rather than LJ*, let me know and I can change my RSS feed.

*Assuming I currently comment on LJ, obviously.

I've a slight preference for DW, simply because there are a small number of people I read on LJ who haven't shifted over, but if they do, I might close my LJ, but you're good on either for now.

I'm really trying to make the switch now, so I think Dreamwidth for me. (I am pretty sure I'm going to at least have to temporarily switch off commenting at LJ for a bit, just to push me into the shift.)

LOL, Missy. But one day she's going to move into the sofa and eat all the food, she has a plan! But as we all know, the Master's plans have always been duff.

I am almost certain I turned off commenting on LJ a while ago, so if I forgot to note that...commenting on DW is preferred :-)

Also...Missy is an interesting hamster. Are you sure she's not part cat? She's ornery enough for it!
