mokie: A package of meat wishes you happy holidays (holiday of the day)
February 5th is National Weatherpersons Day.

This is a difficult holiday for me, since I hold KTVI meteorologist Dave Murray personally responsible for all inclement weather in the St. Louis area, but to keep the peace, I'll eat my turkey in silence.

(Do I need to clarify that this is an inside joke? Dear FBI: I am not this kind of crazy, I promise. We just used to have a cat that hated Dave Murray's ties, that's all.)

Edited to add: Oh look, it's also Brad Fitzpatrick's birthday! And H.R. Giger's birthday. Hrrrrrrrm.

About dream/reading tags

y-* tags categorize dreams.

For types: beyond the obvious, there are dreamlets (very short dreams), stubs (fragment/outline of a partially-lost dream), gnatter (residual impression of a lost dream).

For characters: there are roles (characters fitting an archetype), symbols (characters as symbols), and sigils (recurring figures with a significance bigger than a single dream's role/symbolism).

x-* tags categorize books.

Material is categorized primarily by structure, style and setting. If searching for a particular genre, look for the defining features of that genre, e.g. x-form:nonfic:bio, x-style:horror, x-setting:dystopian.
