We decided that we’re spending way too little time and money on our cats, so it was time to adopt yet another one in order to make their herd a proper coven. Called the vet, and they had a female ready to be adopted.
Ah, yes, the name… I wanted to continue naming the cats after goddesses, but Andrea naturally suggested Fairy Princess as her name, so we decided to make things simple and call her Athena Fairy Princess.
She’s 3 months old, extremely lovable, has a loud purr, and is currently trying to figure out how to coexist with her two new sisters. Who are not thrilled whatsoever about this new addition to the household.

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
