All to Ourselves

Apparently, nobody in Montreal homeschools because on a Monday morning we have a huge rec center entirely to our disposal:

On school holidays, it teems with people and the noise is intolerable.

Weighted Down

I’ve been having amazing sleep here in Canada and I couldn’t figure out why. I usually sleep many hours but the quality of sleep is low, so I never feel rested. Over here, though, I get really great sleep. I think what’s causing this welcome experience is that the blanket I’m using here is heavy. Maybe there’s something to those weighted blankets one sees on TV? Has anybody tried them?

Reoccurring Limbs

The new thing in Russian propaganda is that Russian scientists are far ahead of everybody in the world and know how to regrow lost limbs. Wartime amputees shouldn’t worry! It’s no trouble to make new legs sprout where the old ones used to be. Then the soldier can go back to the front, lose them again, and, I assume, keep regrowing the legs in perpetuity.

It’s curious that a flight from reality these days always involves the capacity to rearrange parts of human body like Lego pieces.
