Checked Out

Filed under: — Jaime @ 2:33 pm

Another weekend of depressing news, and I find myself further checking out from, well, everything. Since I can’t fully remove myself from society, I can concentrate on checking out and focusing on things that are interesting and/or educate me and keep me out of the mainstream loop.

In that vein, I was recommended to check out the works of horror manga author Ito Junji. Before I located any of his horror manga, I first stumbled into Ito Junji’s Cat Diary. I became an instant fan. I highly recommend reading this. It’s a really short read. It manages to capture cat ownership in a very precise and hilarious way. Give it a read. You’ll love it, if only because it means you get to go for a whole hour (or so) without hearing the words “Nazi” or “Antifa”.

Gar!? Grr…

Filed under: — Jaime @ 2:15 pm

Went fishing yesterday, and landed this monster, an Alligator Gar, I believe:
GatorGar8-7-17

Didn’t keep him, of course. Too much work to filet from what I read online. I did tear up my right hand pretty good on him, but thankfully he didn’t bite me. Those teeth!

If I’m wrong on this fish, please let me know. We were in brackish water (one of the creeks off the Wilmington River). From what I read, Alligator Gar do not normally live in saltwater, but can and sometimes do, especially in LA and TX. I’m trying to learn them by sight, so if anyone has any better information than what I found, I’m all fins.
