Kitsnaps: Tiger

Tiger: the February picture for the 2014 CE Murphy photographic calendar.

I gave several people copies of the calendar for Christmas. Upon seeing this picture, there were gasps of, “How close did you have to get for this picture?!” I was really about three feet away, probably; the tiger was obligingly lying near the glass of its enclosure, and I had a good lens on the camera. :)

spoilers, sweetie

This is me staying off the internet today because spoilers, sweetie.

I had, of course, intended to stay off entirely after realizing on Twitter last night that my entire feed was filling up with Sherlock spoilers and running away after the second, albeit very minor, one. So I retreated to Livejournal, which should have been safe, except some asshole who’d gotten to see an early preview a couple of weeks ago posted her review while it was still airing.

Seriously, guys, I’m not that much of an anti-spoiler maven, but that was just a dick move. I freaked out and ran away and took her off my daily reading list so I couldn’t see the post, and didn’t read more than the “I saw Sherlock early, here are a shitload of spoilers!” warning, but seriously, that sucked.

However, because shockingly, television spoilers are not the first or indeed fifteenth thing on my mind in the morning, I logged on and went to Facebook this morning, where the second thing on my friends list there was a Sherlock spoiler of considerable significance.

Yeah. So I’ll be off the internet today.

That’s okay, I gotta start reading THE SUMMER TREE anyway. Or at least finish re-reading THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA…
