And at least three days in a row he has come into the bedroom in the wee hours - he is getting a feel for the layout of the apartment and and an idea of where he can usually find me.

Slarti went to town on that Fancy Feast, and Boston was so polite!

He was willing to get pretty close to me for some canned chicken! And he's been eating and drinking.

He is a shy boy but he loves turkey.

Just got an email from Postmates - if you’re a new user using a referral code this week, you get $101 in free delivery fees (you still pay for the food and tip). And the person who referred you gets $10 in free delivery fees. If anyone wants to try Postmates and get a bunch of free deliveries, my referral code is hrhg5 !

I tried translating The New Colossus into Toki Pona. Very challenging.

sama ala jan kiwen suli pi ma Elena
kepeken noka wawa la tawa ma ante
lon poka telo sina pi tenpo suno pini
meli wawa li jo e ilo suno la
suno pi sewi li jo e nimi ni:
MAMA PI JAN WEKA. luka suno ona li pana
kama pona tawa ma ale. oko ona li pana e lawa tawa
tomo pi tomo tawa telo insa pi ma tomo tu.

kepeken uta pi kalama ala la ona li toki e ni:
ma majuna o awen e wawa sina!
o pana tawa mi jan sina pi wawa ala e jan pi mani ala
jan mute sina li wile kama jo e kon pona
jan sina pi pilin jaki lon poka telo ona.
o pana e jan ni pi tomo ala tawa mi!
lon poka lupa wawa la mi sewi e ilo suno mi!

[personal profile] phoebonica and I just posted a new chapter in the WTNV fic we're collaborating on. For this chapter I wrote the part in Toki Pona and Melony Pennington's translation, and she wrote Cecil and Michelle's translations (and damn, her translations blew me away!).

I just realized that in Oou, "(f^! #" could translate to either “have a friend” or “build a wall” and this fucking regime has reduced me to making jokes in a deliberately brain-hurty conlang.

After almost a month, repeated emails, chats, and phone calls to customer support, repeatedly being sent to the same link to upload a picture of my EBT card and being told "It will take seven days", an Amazon customer service person finally admitted that they're not yet able to verify Texas EBT cards on the discounted Prime program they announced almost two months ago. No suggestion of when they might be ready, or offer to, y'know, not assume that I'm trying to defraud them and give me the discounted price while they're getting their act together.

I braved the triple-digit heat to trudge out to Mango King for today's special (Thursday torta and fries - I got the beef fajita torta again) and a large pepino agua fresca. Totally worth it.
