The early dusk is thanks to the thickness of the clouds, now so dense that they appear more like a high fog. I wish they would settle earthward and be a real fog. There hasn't been real fog here in ages. The rain, such as it is, is nice, but fog would be nicer. We probably won't get any, though.
What I did get was an LJ spam comment in French. That's the first French spam I can recall ever getting. It wasn't for anything exotic, though; just the usual woodie pills. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't for tinned fois gras or brie. Not that I'd have bought any, but it would be nice to think my spammers think I'm a bon vivant rather than just another chronically flaccid net nerd.
Speaking of purchases, I need filters for my Brita pitcher, but nobody has any on sale cheap. I'll be annoyed if I have to chose between paying full price or drinking unfiltered water that reeks of chlorine.
It smells like my sweet potato is almost done baking.
