Give my love to the future of the human kind

Past the publication of "The Creeping Influences" and some of the (positive!) reactions it has provoked on social media, today was actually, unexpectedly awful in ways I can't even make entertaining to read about, but it does make me happy to learn about about Neanderthal glue. I have trip books in the form of John le Carré's A Legacy of Spies (2017), Ruthanna Emrys' Winter Tide (2017), and an omnibus of five early novels by Margaret Millar. I just want to curl up and sleep for a week. Or not have to work for a month and get to write the lesbian pulp I have not been able to research since March. Or even a poem.

I'm sorry about the unmentionable awfulness.

Yes! I also like it that the Smithsonian began the article
"There are many technological breakthroughs that have dramatically impacted the course of human history: the discovery of fire, the wheel, Doritos-flavored taco shells."

Aww, sorry to hear that. And somehow it's even worse when it spoils what should have been a good day. <3

I hope its awfulness lessens asap.

I very much enjoyed the story.

Neanderthal glue is also a happy-making thing for me.

I am so sorry today is Not Good and I hope tomorrow is better.

The glue article is lovely- I had no idea that birch bark had tar in it to extract. Thank you for sharing it.

LESBIAN PULP YOU SAID LESBIAN PULP

BUT ONE OF THOSE REASONS IS DEFINITELY ABSOLUTELY LESBIAN PULP

I was think of your posts about Wittgenstein and decided to look up his favourite mystery writer, Norbert Davis. I think I may have to try reading his stuff, if I can find any.

I'm very sorry to hear about the awfulness. I too was pleased with the Neanderthal glue.

*hugs* for awfulness and the journey, and hope for better things.
