Otterday! And Open Thread

Welcome to Otterday! Today’s open thread is hosted by an otter call Sailor, brought to us by Douglas Brown on Twitter.

a sleek, slim brown otter is lying on its back on the snow. It is curled up peering at its own belly.

And today’s bonus otter is a sea otter snapped in Washington State, USA, by Beaman Kolb.

Closeup of a fuzzy sea otter floating on water. It has its eyes closed and face turned to one side. There are rainbow reflections on the water in the background.

Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? Reading a good book (or a bad one)? Anything in the news that you’d like to discuss? What have you created lately? Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?

  1. It’s amazing how, at the very very end of a massive project, one can lack motivation. I have minor corrections to my PhD thesis before it is DONE and AWARDED and they are draaaaaging.

  2. Well done Mary! You will get there, and it will be awesome! 🙂
    I have had a busy week, I got back from Italy last Saturday (but was too busy trying to stay awake all day to do anything) and have since been planning all sorts of things and writing assignments. Yesterday I made a Roman stola and gap-sleeved tunic to wear on Market Day, which is where all the clubs at my uni advertise themselves. I’m the president of the Classics and Ancient History Society, it is awesome! But a lot of work.
    Today I am heading up the coast to see my person and babysit so he and his wife can go out for dinner.
    Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far!

  3. Doesn’t he though. I love how his fans send him things they think he will like and he shares them with everyone.
    I also really liked that the article talks about George and his husband without making a big deal of it. It’s just what it is and that’s cool.

  4. What’s wrong with [three things nobody has mentioned so far on this thread redacted]?
    Moderator note: how about introducing your combative question by sharing what prompted you to ask Hoyden About Town about it? Seeing as this appears to be your first time here.

  5. I have a meeting with my thesis supervisor tomorrow, so clearly I am spending today procrasticleaning. Life choices with your friendly neighbourhood Chally.
