Ariolus, Paracord, and the Pop-Up Fire and Fury

He's back! He's Ariolus Maximus,  a Granado Boyd who used to belong to Miss Ally (he was never painted there) and now he has a mahvelous new face by Alewife. She traded me for an extra head, and I think I got the best part of the trade :D Isn't he the cutest? She sent some little leather bracers with him too, which he will wear with pride. <3 <3

Also in from Amazon, the paracord! All one nice continuous length, and it's 3mm despite the label claiming it was 2.5 mm. Perfect weight and stretch, too! Lots of people here need to be restrung, so I am glad to have a big hunk of it.

And finally, an artistic version of Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury from IAmHappyToast on twitter:

A sample page:

I'm 2/3 of the way through the actual book, and I am finding it actually somewhat sympathetic to Trump--it certainly doesn't make him look like a genius, but it makes Bannon look like the real villain of history. (Trump would be perfectly happy just entertaining A list guests and golfing, and pontificating to his fan base.) I'm just sorry that Chief of Staff Kelly booted Wolff out when he was trying to professionalize the White House, because it would be interesting to see if the dysfunction got better. I certainly hope so. Interesting times.

My own house got the leaky toilet fixed today, and we are trying to figure out if the water leak in the basement is from the roof or the dishwasher. My best suspect is the dishwasher.


  1. I am half-way thru the Fire and Fury - Sort of feels like Alice down the rabbit hole at 1600 PA Ave. “Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” .. ;)

    1. I know. I miss professionalism. I miss proper spelling in White House announcements. At this point I even miss George W. Bush.
