We once lost a furby in the garage. Sometimes at night it would switch itself on and from the hall we'd hear it plaintively observe "it's dark in here".
every ten minutes an electronic device somewhere in my house is saying "please charge" in a soft woman's voice. i have no idea what it is or where it is as i have never heard this before. really looking forward to having this interrupt my sleep all night tonight

Every day I say your name even though it hurts. I miss you, my friend.

It is incomprehensible. My friend hadn't finished. Hadn't finished, not close to. Me: pointless; over; in pain; ran out of reasons a decade or more back. Why didn't this count for anything? How could everything end up so wrong?

Best dance on screen I have seen since the pandemic began. When I think back to the performers I love the mostβ€”top of the head: Jo Fong, Mark Bruce, Julia Griffin, Kate Coyne, Alison Jacques, Lauren Potter, Kema Ekpeiβ€”the common factor is they can rock out. Nothing comes close

Love St Mary's (and was a member of the congregation before I was ill) but this always irked me. Stoker mentions several specific gravesβ€”describing in detail George Canon's slab atop which Lucy & Mina's bench standsβ€” it's completely legitimate to wonder where he had in mind.
Posted without a hint of irony on the door of the Church of St Mary the Virgin, adjacent to Whitby Abbey.

Visitors may not be vacuously asking after the grave of Dracula himself, but instead wondering about the existence of the grave that is so pivotal to the action of the book, 'Dracula'.

Smarter to print a little pamphlet with the answer to exchange for donations I'd respectfully suggest. I would happily write and produce it in fact.

Astonishing to reflect on what fossils might have meant to Neolithic people. That they were meaningful enough to be worth transporting tens of thousands of kilometres. That their patterns were carefully worked into the decoration.
These are fossilised sea lilies, threaded onto string to create leg jewellery someone was buried with ~5,000-years-ago. They were already ancient fossils when the jewellery was made by #Neolithic people! #FossilFriday πŸ”— (Β£) buff.ly/3d8nq1S

Humbling and sad to reflect this #worldelephantday that before climate change and human hunters finished them, elephants roamed Yorkshire. yas.org.uk/Sections/Prehisto…

This was Palaeoloxodon antiquus, fauna of the Yorkshire coast in the middle Palaeolithic. They stood just under 14ft tall, and weighed 15 tons. (Reconstruction: manimalworks.com/pagesenglis… )

And the magnificent Mammuthus primigenius, the famous woolly.

On the darkest nights, I gaze from my window, breath held, scouring the shadows in hopes of glimpsing a ghost.
