No art journaling, no cat picture

Remember Friday, when I was crabby? Yeah, I got called in to work on the fallout from that whole mess. I am not sure when I’ll even be able to go home, much less put together a post. Just keep your fingers crossed for me, ok?! Thanks…

Linkity is crabby

Nobody should have to deal with ransomware on their 50th birthday, dammit! It seems to be an issue with my work computer – I noticed it because there were a couple of dropbox folders that I synch between work and home and suddenly all the files in said folders were encrypted. Plus there was a helpful “pay us and we will decrypt your files” message. Not sure if it’s good or bad that I’m on vacation this week (although hey! I obviously didn’t click anything stupid on my work computer, since I wasn’t there…). Anyway, cleaning that up, restoring the folders from backup (I definitely recommend CrashPlan, which paid for itself in salvaging this mess), and sending an email to our support guys at work has consumed quite a bit of my linkity time. Let’s see how far I get in the time I have…

Reading Update
My Day with the Cup by Sidney Crosby. It’s very sweet. And it having 87 pages is the most Sidney Crosby thing ever. (This is from the 2009 Cup win.)
Little Book of Letterpress by Charlotte Rivers. Interesting look at the work of various letterpress studios around the world. I would’ve loved for the “Letterpress in Practice” chapter to have been much longer.
Eight Million Gods by Wen Spencer. Anytime I end up reading a book in a single sitting because it completely sucked me in, that book is an automatic five-star read. Plus I’ve reserved Wen Spencer’s Elfhome series at the library and am looking forward to starting it soonishly.
Letterpress Now: A DIY Guide to New and Old Printing Methods by Jessica C. White. Very good overview of three types of printing presses (tabletop platen, freestanding platen, cylinder press), along with projects for each type.

Linkity says goodbye to Leonard

I find I have little enthusiasm for linkity tonight. It’s been a rough week. First the US election, which… I really hoped for better from us. And then learning of Leonard Cohen’s death…

Here’s a blurry (it was windy) rose blooming by my building. In November. In Minneapolis, Minnesota. Where Thursday’s high temperature of 68F was the average temperature for the 10th of September, not November.

Some post-election thoughts from local bloggers mlegan, kmkat, 366thingsilove, and pkatkins. Eloquent tirade from an NBA coach. Gracious and inspiring words from Hillary Clinton.

Both of the cats have been very clingy this evening. Here’s a shot of my lap a few minutes ago:

“…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…” -Chaos

And that’s all I got this evening, folks. Stay safe. To quote the National, “Be brave and be kind.”

If you’re in the US, don’t forget to vote on Tuesday! Here’s a colorful mural reminder from my neighborhood.
