In other news, Lord Badger took possession of the Museum of Durham's Heritage today.

Met @twsh IRL again today! Fediverse, you'll be glad to hear that we evangelized mastodon a little bit.

Meet Badger, the cat of the dean of Durham's cathedral, and his domain.

I saw a really great analogy (for cis people) about what it's like to be misgendered and, like, hey:

"Imagine that your name is Sara, but everyone you meet says you look more like a Susan and refuses to call you by your given name. Now imagine how grating it is, *even if that person otherwise means well*."

Slow day, but I managed to finish reading Ted Chiang's "Exhalation". These new stories are really good (the titular one is the standout for me).

Back from London. It was great, first because the talk went well, and also because I had more time to visit the city this time. It's so cool!

Music and philosophy study group, King's College London

Traveling to London for another talk (I'll be there until Saturday), this time on music and modal epistemology. I think it's a cool topic, bit I'm a bit afraid because it's somewhat outside of my area of expertise.

Reading John Gardner's "Grendel" (good so far, I'm halfway through).
