Ramping up for spring, the ladies were busy today! 🐝🐝🐝

Bees traveling through the tube of their indoor observation hive, they are super busy today!

Venting here because no one knows me. Just had a major run-in with the asshole cat trying to trim her nails because the teen got it in her head that she wanted to use the cat in her film project, and I didn’t want her friend to get injured. I should have just put my foot down and said no, find another way, but instead I figured I could just trim her nails a tiny bit to be safe. Instead the fucking cat went for my face. I now have 8 wounds on my face that finally mostly stopped bleeding, one on my lip probably could benefit from stitches, but I just don’t have it in me. I’m definitely going to have scars from this, and I feel so fucking stupid and furious with myself for the entire episode, I just want to cry. I have had cats my entire life, I should have known better, but seriously I have never had a cat before that was as much of an asshole as this one. No we aren’t getting rid of the cat, we don’t do that here. My loathing of that cat just went up 10-fold. Fuck.

Squish,

@jeridansky thanks, I appreciate that. Just in a funk now, and the cut on my lip keeps bleeding on and off which is annoying. So mad at the damn cat, she is just such an asshole. My other sweet cat was loving on me earlier, and the dogs are snuggling with me so that is good. Just ordered Mederma to hopefully keep the scarring at a minimum, I’m going to look a bit frightful until this all heals though.

Squish,

@jeridansky I look like I got in a fight with a weedwhacker, holy hell.

every few months i accidentally type www.facebook.com/mark instead of /marketplace, and it never fails to disappoint 🤣

it reads like a war story from a 47 year old divorced dad flexing about that time he worked his way into the arm wrestling world championship 💪 💪 💪

Squish,

@vga256 was this during his prep for his cage match with Elon? 😂😂🤣

Quick glance at the current winds in the Santa Ana wind corridor through Los Angeles County and Ventura County. 56mph wind gusts on the peaks.

Squish,

@ai6yr hoping all is remaining safe near you!

Squish,

@ai6yr hoping for the best!

Brewing a pot of coffee, just in case. Hope I don't have to drink it until morning.

Squish,

@ai6yr hoping things stay ok there! Winds have died down here from earlier, but likely they will pick up again at some point. Will be sleeping with one eye open tonight

I need a polite & respectful way to tell a parent:

"I don't mind if you pray for me, but FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK please stop sharing my private health information with your chuch group. I DON'T WANT PRAYERS FROM THOSE BIGOTS.

"Next time you wonder why we aren't close, remember that one reason is because YOU DON'T KEEP MY PRIVATE SHIT PRIVATE."

#EndRant

Squish,

@RamenCatholic oh my gosh, I would be furious! Not sure I would be able to be polite and respectful in that situation, I’m sorry you are dealing with this 😢

Squish,

@RamenCatholic yea, that sounds about right.

So, a co-worker has a cold today.

Got me thinking. I honestly thought having a pandemic will finally stop people from showing up sick at work. But it doesn’t.

I used to be one of those who will suck up any illness and continue work, seeing patients, even without a mask 🫢😧.

But Covid changed my perspective on this. If we can, we shouldn’t work when we’re sick. It shouldn’t be a radical idea.

Squish,

@DocCarms I’ve had several instances of cancelling with friends because they “have a cold”, then several days later they test positive. Latest time happened a week ago.

How do people go through life not knowing what weevils are? I was talking about ants to a teacher the other day and mentioned something about weevils & they were like "what are weevils?"

"Like beetles but with the long snoot to drill acorns and trees."

"drill acorns!?"

"That's how they end up hollow"

"oh."

"That's how acorn ants have a place to live!"

"oh. I didn't know so much was going on in acorns."

"That's not even the tip of the iceberg!"

I'm astonished.

Squish,

@futurebird I knew nothing about weevils, had heard the name but no idea what they actually were. All of a sudden my son became obsessed with weevils, so I’m learning fast! They are really cute!

So 1/3 of the cast of my daughter’s upcoming play is out with Covid, because the one guy last week who was “sick with something” wouldn’t keep his mask up despite being repeatedly reminded. He then gave it to three others, the last one actually bothered to test and it was positive. All cast members were instructed to test before rehearsal tonight and the other sick ones tested positive as well. So far my daughter is ok, she has been masking and got her booster two weeks ago, hoping this doesn’t spread further so they don’t have to reschedule too many shows. Even if you think it’s “just a cold”, it’s worth testing just in case to avoid spreading the ‘Rona, and for shit’s sake, if you are sick with anything wear a fucking mask people 🙄

Controlled burn in the canyon below us, I know they have it totally under control and low winds today, but seeing smoke billowing that close is definitely raising my anxiety level today.

If you don't remember, worth loading Watch Duty for fire season (which is till on for California until it rains again, albeit a bit muted, thankfully)
(yes, that's the #MemoryFire)

Squish,

@ai6yr Watch Duty is an excellent app.

Friday the 13th... FARM FIELD OF TERROR! They're angry! They want revenge! They are yelling "we're mad, we're going to get you!" #beekeeping (ps. 60,000 to 80,000 bees unhappy with being carted across the county, LOL They were not amused.)

Squish,

@ai6yr you’re an adrenaline junkie, aren’t you 🤣🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝

Squish,

@ai6yr hah! Sounds like it’s working for you!

Have you heard of the waggle dance? It’s how bees communicate the location of a pollen/nectar source. And it’s really cute. 🐝🐝🐝 #BeeKeeping #ObservationHive

Close up of bees on comb in the observation hive. One is doing the waggle dance which is a figure eight with a wiggle thrown in to tell the others where to find the pollen/nectar source.

Squish,

@ai6yr yup, not as hot as yesterday but still warm. Lots of pollen coming in and lots of waggling 🐝

Ah, that was not a new squeaky toy the dog found in the bushes tonight. 😬 (ps. apparently dying rats sound exactly like dog squeaky toys)

Squish,

@ai6yr oh dear, did you take away his toy?

Squish,

@ai6yr I hope the treat was at least a pork chop or something 😂

Oooh, almost grabbed a handful of wood pellets for the smoker before I noticed this little critter..
