Slept almost all day yesterday. Managed some food. Feeling much better - less pain, more energy.

Making mental notes on what worked. (NOT doing things that hurt for one.)

The key thing is that it’s politicians, not the military or some sort of special team, that become involved with UFO mythology, so this isn’t about firefights and a standard “alien invasion.” It’s much more about [UFO] mythology itself, and how that myth has been shaped by, and actually done its part in shaping, America. -- Paul Cornell

My partner Doug went outside and spotted the first fireflies of the season!  As it is well after dark, only a few are left flying high overhead.  Tomorrow we will have to look for them at dusk.  The weather is warm and damp, and we have copious grass, so there should be some.  :D

Today we went to Champaign for shopping.  The weather was mostly cool and pleasant.  Now it is warm, damp, and full of bugs.  >_<

Round 1, I planted two wave petunias, one in a pot and one in the barrel garden; plus a packet of chive seeds in the septic garden. 

EDIT 5/27/17: Round 2, my partner Doug raked grass and I helped haul it away.

EDIT 5/27/17: Round 3, I trimmed grass around about half of the wildflower garden.

Oh man we just slept in a lot. We've been feeling kind of under the weather, I don't know if it's just working on the deck then a way longer day at work than we expected got us really sore still or we're getting sick but ow damn it we just woke up and everything hurts. Got to drink some iced coffee and stretch a lot.

But I had a really cool dream last night! Or kind of cool, some of it was weird. I was in this place that was maybe more south, like it was really hot out and there were a lot of different plants and also beaches. I was at this place with a lot of long walking trails and cool greenhouse buildings just walking and checking everything out, also there were a lot of other robots there? I was trying to figure out what this place even was, it was kind of awkward I was walking through one of the buildings and there was this guy in a lab coat with some other people walking with him and I overheard him say "Android is my favorite word!" And I was just kind of like WTF? But then I got distracted because the place had all these walkways with wooden railings and vines all over them, and I saw a USB outlet on one of the vines and I was like what, and I looked closer and it turned out all the vines were actually like extension cords? Like they were all robot plants basically, and the leaves were solar panels that just looked like leaves, and I guess they were all powering the place with solar energy and that was basically the coolest damn thing I'd ever seen and I wanted some of these plant cord vine things so bad. Then I woke up.

I actually just googled it like is there such thing as an extension cord that looks like a plant vine because I really would totally want something like that IRL and I found this kickstarter but it failed and there's a link to a website but you can't get it yet. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/electrovine/electrovine I wonder if I could ever just make something like that like green extension cord with fake plant leaves attached. I probably could, I need to remember this so I can do it sometime.

OMG ok speaking of plant things I just turned on my ipad and it was still on this thing that confused me so bad last night. I got into bed early and was falling asleep and suddenly my ipad does an alarm, at midnight, and I'm like what the hell I do not have any alarms that go off at midnight. And I looked at it and it was an alarm saying "Purple Plant Day! We got the Moses-In-A-Boat and Persian Shield this day, will we get another purple plant???". XD OBVIOUSLY I MADE THIS ALARM FOR MYSELF A YEAR AGO because for some reason I thought this was important. I think it was something like I accidentally got two purple plants on this day a year apart and Facebook memories reminded me of it or something and I thought that was cool so I decided May 27 is official Purple Plant Day and it's worth setting an alarm AT MIDNIGHT for??? The Persian Shield plant died a long time back which was sad but I've still got the Moses-In-A-Boat which is the best plant name I've ever heard and it's still purple and still going. Happy anniversary to Moses-In-A-Boat. But no I'm not going out and getting more purple plants today I don't have room for new plants right now I still need to get a plant pot for my new Phil who is growing roots and then I'm REALLY not going to have more room. I'm not going to delete this alarm though it can confuse me at midnight again in a year from now.

It's part of their King imprint.

Its protagonist's the 22nd Phantom's successor.

He doesn't consider himself the 23rd.

That's not for want of self-confidence. )

This made me laugh, because people are surprised  by it.  Guys, this is nothing more than natural selection of a typically varied population.  It's what always happens when predators whack the individuals with a certain trait -- it drops out.  Like the silent crickets of Kauai.
