A Good Morning

We stayed up late, last night, installing things on Chaos' new PC. So I'm operating on a few hours' sleep. OTOH, the kids got up early and got ready early, and then Beloved helped out with the finishing touches.

I still had to teach them how to do it, because Beloved is more of a programmer than a hairdresser.

I have run out of stuff to take to St. Vinnies. This is an immense relief for me as I no longer have bags or baskets of random crap clogging my hallways.

Beloved has begun sorting through the boxes of their crap, so there's a foreseeable future in which there is little, indeed, to clog anywhere.

So I have started today tired, but with an immense atmosphere of pure and utter relief. It's a joy.

And I hope the sensation stays.

We're seeing a movie, tonight. It's been so long that I've forgotten which one we're seeing. Derp.

I love it when things work out. Fingers crossed they continue from now on.

And I haven't watered my garden yet... hangon...

There. Plants are still alive, yay.

Plain cigarette packaging works: study

Plain packaging on tobacco products is associated with lower smoking appeal, greater support for the policy and a higher urgency to quit among adult smokers, a new study has found.

The study, conducted by Victorian researchers and published in the journal BMJ Open, is the first to examine how plain packaging affects smokers thoughts in practice following the roll-out of plain packaging laws in Australia in late 2012. Previous studies have only looked at simulated plain
