He's reasonably identifiable as a duck, right?
And in non-duck news, I am not currently on fire, but the current wildfire in Sierra Madre is close enough that I can see the smoke from my street. Which has me in a constant state of mild panic. Partly for myself, but also for people I know who live vaguely that way, only I'm not sure how far that way. Also for my cat and dog, who's dependence on me is really emphasized by things like this. Plus it's a upper 90s F in April, and our air quality is shit with all the smoke. I don't think I will ever become entirely comfortable living in a region that is so constantly on fire. Anyhow, in summary, fire scary.
Also, the water in my building was turned off for awhile this morning, no warning, no explanation later. This has happened way more frequently here than in any building I've ever lived in, and I can't say I'm happy about it. I'm not sure if it's a management issue, or if there is something wrong with our building. Either way, it wasn't a fun way to start a day this hot. At least it's a pretty great building otherwise.
But hey! Enough bad! Look at the duck! And sorry that this post is even more all over the place than usual. Nature trying to kill us has me stressed.
