I find few things more annoying than Siri apologizing to me or shudder calling me by name. I don't even know how she knows my name. I just want her to do a better job at dictation when I text without my glasses on so I don't seem like a weirdo sending non sensical texts. Is that too much to ask? Fuck you Apple. I'm not so desperate for companionship that I need a relationship with my phone! I have the trees!!! Remember?
Speaking of the trees, I am considering making a handmade book out of one large sheet of luxurious printing paper and using only solar plate prints to stamp in the image. It would mean that I would ink, wipe and place 12 plates at a time before imprinting upon the single piece of paper. I have two concerns. One is that the images will rub off onto each other if two prints are face to face (my current layout) and the other concern is that inking and wiping is a time consuming process and I am not sure of the first plate will be still be good to go by the time I wipe off the last plate. I think I might stop by the print center this week and ask an expert. That's always a good idea, and also, I totally like them there. They're so nice to everyone. Which is a good thing always but especially good post 2016 election when people are struggling.
I must have been a in WW2 in a previous life because I am having insane deja vu over all of this. I used to fantasize about where I might move after new town with a dog park friend who went ahead and bought some land in North Carolina and the other day she continued with our line of joking that I could live on her property and I told her I'd have to wait and see how things pan out with the orange one on board because the KKK has it out for Jews and I was not going to put myself in harm's way. She seemed shocked, like she had never in her life thought that the candidate who pandered to white supremacist groups might create a hostile environment for people who aren't "white." Yup, it's privilege. If anything it is quite interesting being a person who can fly under the radar and hear all the nasty stuff people say though. No one ever thinks I'm a Jew. So they tell me how great this town was before the jews took over or how the town used to be so different because now it's ruined and half jewish, and when I tell them it is 22% jewish as of the last census they tell me I'm wrong. Which I'm not because I checked before moving from step ford which was not at all jewish and also anti semitic. And those people who think the jews are taking over are so sad about the whole thing too. Other than the annoying Long Island accent and speaking louder than a nurse in an old folks home I'm not exactly sure what the down side of having a big jewish population might be. I mean who doesn't love better bagel stores? Extra days off from school in September? Really, where is the beef with my people? I just don't get it.
