Management clearly didn't think this one through

I went to the coffee place across the street to get a cup of coffee and a cookie. As the person at the register was ringing everything up, she asked me "So...are you a mom?"

 

I am not a mom and have no intention of ever being one. I also hadn't expected any of this to come up while getting coffee, so my brain kind of ground to a halt. The best I could get out was "Uh, no. I have a cat, though."

 

Turns out that since this is the first day of school for all the local kids, the coffee place decided to have a "Mom sale." Except instead of putting out a sign advertising it and accepting that some people would lie to get the discount, employees have to ask everyone who might be a mom if they're a mom. Awkward.

This isn't book-related at all. I just came across it and was left speechless for a bit, so now I need to share it. Sometime later today I may get sucked into an "ultimate epic battle simulator" black hole.

I miss electricity

According to the last estimate, I'm going to be without power for at least 12 hours today. It went out at 5 AM and is proving tougher to fix than the electricity company thought (first estimate was only 2 hours). 

 

really hope this doesn't end up extending into tomorrow.

 

ETA: It's back on earlier than expected! Yay!!!

I'm starting to try to scrape together a coherent review of The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku, so I figured I'd get in the mood by checking out my favorite Vocaloid tuner's most recent work. Unfortunately, it looks like she's been pretty inactive in the past year or so (*sob*), but she did upload this Hatsune Miku V4 English cover of "Tell Your World" almost a year ago. Like she says in the description, it's not too bad considering that Miku's voice provider doesn't even speak English. But yeah, the subtitles definitely help.

Change of plans

My sister, her kids, and I are getting together one last time before they all move about 700 miles away. All the previous times, I went to her place, so this time she's coming to mine. The problem: she got a later start than she planned, so the activities we originally intended to do aren't going to work out.

 

Since my town doesn't have much to do besides eat at restaurants, I just spent the past half hour combing my DVD collection for things that would probably be appropriate for kids ages 2-7. I came up with 7 movies and one TV show. Go me! Although now I kind of wish I had bought Chi's Sweet Home a while back, because that would have been perfect. Hundreds of episodes, each 3-10 minutes long, and the worst thing that ever happens is Chi getting sick or lost for a couple minutes.

 

ETA - Ooh, just realized that even Chi's Sweet Home would have been a problem. I looked it up, and for some reason it doesn't have an English dub. It boggles my mind.
