(Also it was announced that Korra comics will be out next year!!)
– I hit my head really hard at Walmart yesterday. There was this rack thing on the aisle that didn’t have anything on it and I slammed my head against it. No signs of concussion yet, though.
– I was actually around little kids at our work Halloween party. I ended up supervising games and being nice and friendly to small children. It was a cool way to spend a Friday at work. And I got my face painted.
– Hank and Katherine Green had a baby today! His name in Orin and will probably grow up to end world hunger, provide free education to everyone, and be president of Mars.

– I’ve seen the use of non-binary “their/they” come up a lot recently to refer to individuals that do not identify as strictly male or female. So instead of saying he or she, they prefer “they.” This bothered me at first because I’m a technical editor (though you wouldn’t know it by the awful grammar I use on this blog!) and the use of the singular they is a pet peeve. But I thought about it for awhile and realized that I’m being ridiculous. We are not confined by English; English adapts with us and for us. There is no other gender-neutral third person singular pronoun, so we’ve adapted one to suit our needs. That’s the beauty of language.
P.S. this black kitten came to keep me company while I was waiting for trick-or-treaters.
Rex just finished up week 7 of his recovery. He’s started being a bit of a brat about his cage rest, though. He’s feeling much better…so much so that he refuses to accept that his vet ordered another week of rest. He started biting at the bars of his cage, so we moved him to the hallway. But yesterday, he weaseled his way around the gate and squeezed behind our refrigerator to break free while we were out shopping.
We’ve been letting him snuggle with us in the morning, though, and just look at how cute he is. Just look.
(kinda in a reading slump where I can’t decide on what I want to read?)
