Today in Austin it's rainy and cold, and after going out for Torchy's Tacos with Dave for breakfast, I have spent the remainder of the day hibernating. Sometimes it's good just to sleep. When I woke this morning I thought about the programming I saw on the science channel yesterday about the transgenetic goats whose DNA has had a gene from a spider inserted into it. The milk from the goats can be used to make dragline silk. You might ask, why not just farm the spiders? Apparently spiders are both territorial and cannibalistic, which cut way down on the silk production. Besides, goats are cuter than spiders. I wonder if Jessie would be afraid of a goat that's part spider as she is completely terrified of spiders. She said she wouldn't take care of goats if we got them here because it would mean going out at night when the tarantulas are out. Somehow I think going out to care for spider goats would be worse.
Alternatively I could just get cable tv and watch the science channel, HGTV, the Travel channel, the Discovery channel, the History channel, or BBC America! But no. I think there's even more Trump on tv than there is on the Internet, and I don't need to pay to be bombarded with it (though Trevor Noah would be a treat). Oh, hey! Trevor Noah is also available on YouTube! Well, that solves that question. Now off to see Logan at the Alamo Drafthouse and hope to have water (new hotwater heaters being installed now and all water is off) when we get home.
