By now, most people are aware of the puppy alternative to the Super Bowl but that was just the beginning. It's 2016, we have all kinds of animals that are in on the fun. You might have to tune into some of them on TV but others you can watch right here.
Here we are for Jan. 1 - Feb. 6:
( 24 movies )
(For the record, 6 of those were for vid research)
+ TV seasons: Mozart in the Jungle 1-2
Thanks for your feedback yesterday on Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. I decided to bail and picked up The Golem and the Jinni instead. Three pages in and it's already a pleasure to read. In fact, I'm debating whether to sit on it for a week and a half and bring it on the plane to/from Vancouver.
Speaking of which, went on a quest today for an outfit suitable for a gallery opening. Found this very pretty dress but it fit like a box, alas. Oh, haha, there was also a collection of dresses suitable for Star Trek cosplay. Will probably wear what I wore to cinco's wedding, then, or my gray plaid skirt + black top if that's not too casual; hard to tell. The trip was not entirely in vain, however; I got a green and blue gradient sweater.
We had a beautiful snowfall on Friday -- storybook icing on the tree branches once the winds died down, followed by a pink and orange sunset. All of our million inches of snow last winter was powder; none of it stuck like this. Boston Globe curated some shots. More forecast for tomorrow. Good luck to every one of us trying to get home from work in the middle of it!
Note: There is no possible way that I will be able to gather all the relevant links for fan activity for The 100. The fandom is too spread out across too many platforms and I just don't have time. This newsletter is highlights focusing on activity on Dreamwidth and Tumblr with links to elsewhere of activity I saw. I'm still learning all the ins and outs of where to find things so if I'm missing something essential to you , let me know where to find it. If you would like to contribute to the link mongering for the coming week (or help me produce the round up), feel free to put it in comments/notes and I will add it to next week's round up. It go out on Sundays, though no guarantees when my life gets a little crazy.
Since I missed a couple weeks due to real life, some links are January ones. I'm also probably missing a bunch.

It turns out that there is a very new Goodwill store in Ypsilanti that will take stuffed animals. They also take VHS tapes and recycle used computer equipment, working or not. They’re even open for donations today. They didn’t come up in my initial searches because they only started taking donations in December and opened their doors to sell some time after that. I’m a little boggled at the idea of an 'upscale' Goodwill store, but I suppose I don’t have to shop there.
We got a phone call from Kroger half an hour ago telling us that the packaged salad Scott bought yesterday and which we ate last night might have been listeria contaminated. I had to listen to the message twice because I couldn’t actually make out the product name, and I still wasn’t entirely sure until I turned to Google. Fortunately, the contaminated salad has manufacturing codes starting with A, and this package’s code started with N, but… I find it disturbing that Kroger would still have stuff on the shelves that was recalled January 27. I can’t believe that they only just got word, so I have to put it down to gross incompetence.

This is a look at the woman Black Canary is in a world with a Crime Syndicate.
I need to see how many grocery bags we’ve got that are durable enough to hold books. I want to get at least some of the books bound for the library out of the house today. Getting all of them out would be really nice, but I’m not holding my breath that we have enough bags for that.
Yesterday, I got about a third of the way through a DVD that must be returned to the library today. It’s not in English, so it takes more focus to watch it than I had for most of the day. I think I’ll be able to finish it before we go to the library. I hope so, anyway. I don’t want to have to wait for my name to come up on the waitlist again.
I checked out the Kitchen Made website to look at replacements for the paddle that’s been giving us trouble, but, apparently, the only replacements available are identical to what we have and will have the same problems. The page for the part is full of one and two star reviews, all complaining about the coating flaking off. I don’t know if there’s something we can buy that will work that isn’t from Kitchen Made. Scott tried that route with the one he bought that turned out to be too tall, but I’m pretty sure he didn’t bother getting the model number for the mixer (I haven’t done that because it requires turning over the mixer which is too heavy for me to lift unaided) and just bought something that looked right. It’s a pity that one won’t work. I really like the design of it.
Cordelia will be gone most of the day today. It’s her friend’s brother’s birthday, and their family invited her to spend the day. (The actual party is from 5 to 7.) They’ll pick her up around 10, and we’ll retrieve her around 7. Finding a present for the birthday boy was challenging because he doesn’t read and isn’t interested in much but TV and games on his mother’s iPad. I think Cordelia ended up buying him a copy of Timeline because he’s enjoyed that while visiting us, even when the girls weren’t interested in playing it with him.
Halfamoon Prompt Challenge - Day 7: Dark Side
Sugar and spice, and all things nice? Like hell.
Give us the best of her worst! Just don’t forget to post it in either community with the tag prompt challenge, or else over at tumblr with halfamoon prompt challenge so we can reblog it!
2. I didn't really feel like doing any translating tonight after getting home, but I'd done some in the morning before work, so at least I didn't get nothing at all done.
3. I made a new default icon using this icon maker.
