A few days ago, Mum found out that she may have a close blood relative she didn’t know about, who was the product of an affair and put up for adoption after he was born. Details are sketchy but we worked out from his birth year that it’s possible his birth parents met at a party my mother’s parents threw. 

I only know all this because she asked me to look into him and make sure it wasn’t a scam, and while it’s not a scam it’s also fucking uncanny how similar he and I are – not just physical appearance but hobbies and personality (as much as you can get personality from a facebook and a blog). He’s ten years older than me, but otherwise we’re pretty similar. 

I emailed her like “I think this guy’s on the level, he’s just looking for a missing piece of his family” and had to stifle a strong urge to be like “Also I want to hang out with him, so be nice.” 

I hope Mum likes him, I want to be his Facebook Friend.

Here's something new for us, and it's a little bit of a dry run in anticipation of another, bigger challenge.
I've opened a Summer Challenge on AO3 that has posting dates from July1 to August 31.  The theme is Summer of MFU, and the idea is to post your work on AO3, within the challenge site:

Well, maybe.  I came across this lovely article on the history of people sleeping in beds.

Well, technically, on people sleeping together.

Communally.

Though - yeah, sex, too. Apparently, it's not really until the latter half of the 1800s, the Victorian period in Britain and to some extent here in the United States, that it became more accepted to sleep alone.

I think, though, that this might not have been the case in the West, as 'civilization'- and its rules -  was slower to catch up there.

So I give you "The Once-Common Practice of Communal Sleeping". To keep warm. To talk about things that you couldn't talk about in public.

And, well, you know . . .

Mosque approved despite pleas to think of the little turtles and an odd assertion that the mosque would produce more sewage than "normal " spiritual use.

Ibid has a ... troubled history with Nigel so we're holding off on that.

No histrionics but somehow Rufus established himself as a cat Fig needs not to annoy, whereas Nigel is someone Fig will happily follow around.

Also, Fig made himself sick eating daisies, then tried to eat one again.

I can see my Kobo has about 300 more titles on it than my laptop Calibre does (because I got the Kobo well before the laptop). How do I move the titles that are on the Kobo to Calibre?

One issue: I really suck at giving people their free reviews. Would appreciate pointers on how to suck less.
