Misc

Took Delta down to Chile. Plastic tableware for dinner, but free wine; I'd forgotten that.

I still haven't taken the public transit here -- no one seems to have put up websites for it and my friends haven't found central info and I found someone on the web saying *they* hadn't found central info -- but I've learned more, from observation and from going to a tour agency to find someone who spoke English. Though I'm not sure I trust one of the things he told me. I note there are tourist information centers on the maps, I should try those next. The options are short buses, more like big vans, and colectivos, that look like taxis but circulate on sort-of fixed routes. I could probably flag some to get downtown; I still don't know where to catch one coming back, or even if they come up past the house.

Friends went to a dinner tonight, so I got to babysit and put the kids to bed. Can't remember if it's happened before, certainly not often. Went pretty well, apart from the corner spider scare. Big, highly venomous, spiders, supposedly not common but we've seen two in the past week. I look at the curtains behind my bed nervously now. The ants haven't invaded in force yet, I'd happy trade. Tonight's challenge was killing the spider without smushing it into the carpet, but I met it.

I read KSR's _2312_. The space bits were interesting, and I particularly liked the future-history periods, with us currently in The Dithering. Yep. Earthside seemed kind of lazy, with development kind of stalled. You could defend it, what with all the climate damage, but still...

Currently reading Clash of Kings. Haven't seen any season 3 GoT yet. I suppose I could right now, the kids are alseep; OTOH I went to bed at 11:30 last night instead of 1 and that seems like a good pattern to form, and it's 11:30 right now. But the adults are still out.

I offered postcards on Facebook and got two responses. You can respond here too if you want, or via e-mail. Send me your address.

What are you called on fb? There's a "minds mindstalk" but I don't recognize any of her friends.

I go by my real name there, but it's pretty private, for people I know physically.
