*cross posted at The Watcher's Diary first*

On May 15 Joss received an award from Equality Now "for his outstanding contribution to gender equality in film and television."

His excellent acceptance speech is available now on youtube.

Just one more reason to love the man.

It's been Tuesday long enough...

I don't actually have much to say, but I was tired of the last unhappy post being up at the top and all unhappy-like. Yeah.

Oh! Happy Beltane yesterday.

I'm feeling all listless today. I have work to do, I'm just not interested in doing it. This morning was spent in a boring and seemingly irrelevant meeting. Well, it's relevant for some people, but wasn't for me. Which got me off to a not-caring-so-much start. It's now almost three, and I still haven't managed to accomplish much, except to discover that I don't remember my login for my photobucket account, and it doesn't recognize any of my email addresses. Good think I still have that webshots account!

I leave you with an old photo of Nova and Sabre biting each other. Nova's gotten a little fatter, but other than that (and the fact that I left the ugly couch with my ex-husband) not much about this photo is different now.

And it's only Tuesday...

Yesterday Fred's cat Sparkie died. He got her as a kitten before he started high school, and she was a lovely, sweet, talkative girl who loved to sit on laps and beg for chicken at the dinner table. She was somewhere between fifteen and seventeen years old and had been going downhill since Christmas, so this wasn't a surprise, but it is still very difficult.

When I got home yesterday I got a call from a friend telling me that another friend has kicked her husband out. There is hope for reconciliation, but he screwed up large and it will be a long road back. And there's a possibility that there won't be reconciliation, which means a whole different set of difficulties, and an entirely different long road.
