Monday salutations, GN!

That thread kitteh has “anime eyes”, which I find a teensy bit creepy. I wonder how soon after the photo was taken it started knocking ornaments off the tree. 😉

Because it’s Monday: what’s wrong with this pic?

The hostage must have “made a furtive move” or “assumed a bladed stance”. 👿

Thread pic: Is that a rogue cat from the first Star Trek episode “Where no man has gone before?”

And in honor of that first episode:

Nightingale Woman,
David Emeron

My Love hath wings–slender, feathered things–
With grace in upswept curve and tapered tip.
My Love doth soar–swiftly to adore–
So twisting ever toward, and graceful skip.

So danceth She–round and round to thee–
Enrapt to bring us care, to bind us kept.
My Love doth know–thou, my love, bestow–
Thine Own, as did He dance and graceful stept.

For now as wed… They–Our Love hath said–
Would bear us hence anon as spectral ships;
So lovely They–so lighted, Their display–
T’would ere illuminate our Earthly trips.

And lovely, we–Love and I, and thee–
Take flight, as once I tasted first thy lips.

Becket Adams, writing for The Washington Examiner, had some issues with “The Rise Of Skywalker”.

The Rise of Skywalker is a joyless disaster

Disney’s new Star Wars movie, the Rise of Skywalker, is a mess.

From its opening scenes, which show our heroes in hot pursuit of a MacGuffin, to its final line of dialogue, which inspired audible groans from moviegoers (myself included), this film is a disaster. How sad that the third and final chapter in a trilogy that launched in 2015 with such high hopes would end like this — not with a fond and timely farewell, but with a wheezing death gasp.

Ouch.

Happy Monday and first full day of Hanukkah, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and dv8!

Got lot’s on my plate today -- got to run back out to TJ’s, and to Costco, and check with a company on a missing present, and it’s raining. Busy, busy, busy!

I started reading this book on checklists -- interesting stuff and history behind it.

“So why do we fail so often? In his book The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right, Atul Gawande explains that there are two main factors that we have control over – ignorance and ineptitude. We fail because we either don’t have the information to perform a task or, if we do have the information, we fail to apply that information consistently and correctly.”
