Traci Loudin6,123This is an online event! Since we can't give out candy via the interwebz, myself and some writer pals are going to give out some free and discounted ebooks.

Jo Mills3,942Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych467,436It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area). Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show. They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good. Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week. As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00160

Later, I am going to be doing a Paint Nite style hangout with some other fans of a podcast.

Now, armed with a bellyful of bacon and coffee, I am hitting the post for mail, Job Lot for cheapass paints, and Whole Foods for cheap terrible wine.

Did you know that you are loved?

Go tell someone that they are loved. Platonic love, romantic love, collegial admirational love, I Don't Quite Get You But I'm Glad That You're Happy doing Your Thing love.

I am spending a lot of time lately listening to one of the local publicly-funded broadcasting stations. One of my life goals is to have enough financial security to be able to contribute to such organizations on the regular. As it stands, I am considering turning around a percentage of the money I get from Patreon and putting it into other things - donating to PBS, or BARCC, or little one time donations into the Patreon campaigns of other makers whose work I adore, or the ACLU, Planned Parenthood... there are so many possibilities and, affordable or no, I want to make a difference.

Are you a Supporting Blisstopian? For as little as a buck a month, you can be, at http://www.patreon.com/Drunkblog

(I am strongly considering closing that campaign and replacing it with one that ends in /Blisstopia, which probably would have been a better idea from the start TBH,... more »

Today is a Thursday that feels very Mondayish. Eldest forgot his homework. Youngest snuck his new 3DS (belated Christmas present from a grandma) into bed and stayed up super late. Middlest misplaced her own 3DS days ago, can't find it anywhere, and is a walking ball of grumpy. Also, I got some disappointing news that I am trying to process.

On the up side of things, +Ilyoodlenoodle is my Easter Bunny. No context for you. It was fun to have an unexpected thing in my box, though.

I have to go to the dollar store for sponges. I think I will stop at Barnes and Noble while I am in the vicinity and get some boxes, if they have any.

For the now, I am stuck sitting in my car, because the guy parallel parked behind me is too close and o haven't got enough room to get out without hitting someone's car. He is in his car but looks very intent on something in his lap. Probably his phone. Like me.

Heh.

mornthing

I am sitting in my car, the Spawn having all been enschoolenated, with the doors locked and the heat off, watching this... hail? Chunky snow? come down, while listening to Antonín Dvořák'a 9th Symphony. It was brought on the first trip to the moon.

I can imagine it, a little. Sitting somewhere dark and deadly cold, looking out at an expanse where nothing grows but dust upon the dust, listening to the flutes and French horns calling each to each, and the swollen strings cresting the drums. Did you listen to it there, Mister Armstrong? Did you weep on the moon?

I have a meeting in a little over an hour. It is necessary and so I shall do it, though I do not wish to. I resent the circumstances that make it necessary.

Post me pictures of something melancholy, something tragically beautiful.

I am not having a Pangea Breakfast. Merely some buttered toast and coffee.

I need to call the pediatrician this morning before my writing Hangout with +Murphy Jacobs ; the therapist, it turns out, can't prescribe meds.

I am a turtley and withdrawn Duchess because of reasons.

On the flip side though, 6 years ago today SALM sent me a first message on OKCupid. <3

I usually put my hair up in some way at night, especially since it is butt-length and I am a rotisserie sleeper and woke up one night strangling on my own hair.

Today is a day for adulting.

25-HOUR BLIND AUCTION!

Interested in the painting? Let me know - via comment, via instant message, via email to andrea@callmebliss.com - what you would like to bid on it before shipping. At noon EST tomorrow (Monday 3/20), I will contact the highest bidder with congratulations and to make plans for shipping.

I haven't figured out what the webcam is on this borrowed machine is, yet, so no selfie today.

No much of anything today; it's a quiet day. I'm hanging out with the kids, watching Royal Pains on Netflix.

I think I want to freehand some circular gallifreyan. Suggestions?

I'm doing Paint Nite via Hangout this evening with fellow fans of the Flashpulp Podcast (affectionately known as The Flash Mob). Part of the purpose is to fundraise for "Team Massive Superawesomeness" - MS Walk funds research, support groups and aid can be given to MSers and their families.

(Note that donation amounts are CAD not USD)

Ouoting Tumblr People #20
Once again, it has been quite a while since I last posted the Tumblr quotes I collect. So, time for another round of quoting Tumblr people.


actuallyalivingsaint.tumblr.com:
Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is looking pretty good right now.


captainofalltheships.tumblr.com:
I can't believe that 2016 has ruined even my desire for 2016 to be over.


fartgallery.tumblr.com:
What if you took off your coat and looked in the mirror to see that you were actually 2 kids stacked on top of each other the whole time?


just-shower-thoughts.tumblr.com:
English is a difficult language. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.


officialleoneabbacchio.tumblr.com:
Things to do if you are a shapeshifter:
1) Get into a place that horses shouldnt be able to get into.
2) Turn into a horse.


just-shower-thoughts.tumblr.com:
My mom asked me how to screenshot on her iPhone. I laughed and then remembered she taught me how to use a spoon and a toilet.


librarianarchy.tumblr.com:
I love when small children identify all quadripedal animals as "doggy!"
It always reminds me of the time Plato offered the definition of a human as any "featherless biped" and Diogenes busted into the Academy with a plucked chicken screaming, "BEHOLD A MAN!"


just-shower-thoughts.tumblr.com:
People aren't scared of being alone at home or the woods. They're afraid that they're NOT alone.


teaboot.tumblr.com:
Okay, new rule: If you regularly consume the blood and flesh of a demigod in a room full of chanting elders you're not allowed to call other religions primitive and evil.


just-shower-thoughts.tumblr.com:
Teenage girls saying "I can't even" is basically the same as old ladies saying "well I never".


callmebliss.tumblr.com:
Apparently my exhusband decided to spend part of Thanksgiving playing Cards Against Humanity with his girlfriend and his mom. My sweet, darling, apple-pie-and-snowflakes former MAH got explained by her youngest son what bukkake is.


joshpeck.tumblr.com:
I lost my glow stick and I was ready to cry but then I turned off the lights and found it because it was glowing I am so fcking smart, Stephen Hawking got nothing on me.


vortisaurus.tumblr.com:
My dad just walked in, asked me "what do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?" and left.


skeletonhaver.tumblr.com:
Apparently texas has a limit on how many sex toys you can own. Imagine a homeowner staring, stonefaced, at a pair of police officers as they haul armload after armload of dildos out of a closet and into their squad car, write a ticket and hand it to them without making eye contact, and drive off.


swevani.tumblr.com:
I'm not a Christian but at this point I want Jesus Christ himself to descend from the afterlife to take the microphone out of Trump's hands and say "are y'all fuckin serious?"


lionkin.tumblr.com:
You ever bite into something that's supposed to be 100% soft and feel something crunch and then you go through the 5 stages of grief in the span of like ten seconds?


danielnelsen.tumblr.com:
I'm watching a food show and one of the contestants literally said "I was introduced to food when I was very young" - like fuck I sure hope you were!?!?


i-just-rode-up-on-a-unicorn-and.tumblr.com:
I did meet a fake geek girl once.
We were at school and she started to casually drop in that she liked comics/games/"geek stuff", at the time I was wearing an Iroman shirt. Deeper into the conversation I found that she didn't know what I meant when I was referring to anything about the characters. When I questioned her about it a few days later she admitted that she had really just said it to get to know me better. We ended up dating and while we were dating she got really into comics, DC especially, and found out that she really did enjoy the things she first said she did. I took her to her first convention. She met another guy there and ended up breaking up with me for him. I went on to discover I was gay and fucked her brother.
Moral of the story. Comics lead to sex in the most unexpected ways.


weavemama.tumblr.com:
Please don't tell me this country isn't going backwards when a man who was too racist to be federal judge in 1986 is now the head of the US justice department.


captainphasmaz.tumblr.com:
Darth Vader but every time he breathes you hear a harmonica.


memedad.tumblr.com:
Jurassic Park: Jeff Goldblum walks seductively towards a big pile of dinosaur shit.


kingcheddarxvii.tumblr.com:
"Not all men" I say, "there is but one who is purely good." But which man am I referring to? In Hungary, deep in the woods and the snow, there lives a lad raised by wolves who feasts upon sunbeams and loves all of nature, unburdened by man's sins. Tenderly, he strokes a hungry squirrel, sharing with her the last acorns of the autumn harvest. A tear rolls down his cheek. Who is he?


linda-belcher.tumblr.com:
Binge-watching is great until you run out of the show and have to start watching it weekly, like some sort of medieval peasant.


milostrology.tumblr.com:
So I was trying to google that scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where Jack and Will are walking underwater with the rowboat over their heads cause it looks cool and I wanna try it

I hate how on Tumblr, a username like lisa486 is almost certainly a pornbot, while someone named solidsnakesasscheeks is almost certainly a real person.

Female country artists: I am going to kill my husband.

If you step on a person's foot they open their mouths, just like trash cans.

Underlit by the fires of Hell edition

Nothing gets the blood pumping in the morning like waking up at the time when you are usually leaving to bring the first Spawn to school.

My phone decided my alarms didn't need to make noise - usually a sign the phone needs a reboot, which I have done - and Eldest just his alarm and rolled over to go back to sleep, trusting me to come wake him. The first half-hour of the day was a mess of rushing to readiness and rejiggering morning routines on the fly. Things have finally hit something approximating normal though, in no small part because Youngest motivated himself to get dressed while I was out driving Eldest.

Break it on down!

My birthday is tomorrow, but the sale in my Etsy shop continues all week! Use coupon code HIPPOBIRDIES30

30% off everything means -

- clearance photo greeting cards are $3.50 apiece! (I have a lot of them, too)

- regular photo greeting cards are $5.60 apiece! (still nicer than what you get at Hallmark and only slightly more $$)

- sets of 4 photo greeting cards are $11.20 which is RIDICULOUS and I can't believe I'm even doing that, but I am. You're welcome.

- matted 5 x 7 prints are $17.50 apiece

- matted 8 x 10 prints are $31.50 apiece

Plus shipping, unless you're one of two lucky people who get free shipping.

[LITANY OF COMPLAINTS]

My whole lower back is sore.
It took four wake ups and some yelling to get Eldest out of bed.
I had to shovel out my car even though I wasn't supposed to do heavy lifting.
One of my windshield wipers got creatively bent by the ice.
I think I scratched my windshield.
I slipped on the ice while trying to get in the car and fell hard in a split and slid half under the car. My whole back is sore and I think I hyperextended my thumb.
My computer is pretty well busted. I might be blue to recover my data, but would need to replace the HDD, for which I do not have the monies. I'm just barely making my bills.

[/LITANY]

[LITANY OF JOY]
I was supported and safe and able to sleep away pretty much the entire afternoon yesterday post-procedure.
Eldest helped with the shoveling so I didn't do it completely alone.
I can probably bend the windshield wiper back into shape.
I don't have any further shoveling or heavy lifting to do. I can get out the yoga mat and do gentle stretching.
Youngest had kindly granted me permission to use his computer while he is at school, so I at least still have access to Goog products for writing Hangouts and editing projects.
I don't have ass cancer.
The hemorrhoids healed well enough on their own that I don't need a suppository.
I am now in possession of a copy of The Force Awakens, and a gift card to Chilis. 🌶 Someday soon there will be dinner and a movie.

[/LITANY]


Need a pro opinion on whether a work of yours is salvageable and how? Ping me. #museforhire

I need to rummage through my finished and half-finished fiber art projects and toss things up on Etsy.

I'm glad I followed the one litany with the other. I don't feel as hopeless as I did twenty minutes ago.

It's COLONOSCOPY DAY! And have you ever sneezed after taking a powerful laxative? It's certainly a sensation, I'll tell ya that.

I'm... not sure really what else to say, TBH. I've been waiting for this day for two weeks, and now it is here and consuming all my thoughts.

The schools only have an hour delay, but for pickup simplicity we are just granting the children a bonus day off school.

I will probably not be on after the procedure, at least not until evening at the earliest if at all; I'm not sure what mental state I am going to be in post-procedure, thanks to the anaesthesia. However, I strongly encourage everyone to send me amusing pictures starting at 1pm, which is when it begins.

I had buttered toast with egg yolks on for breakfast, and now I am officially on a liquid diet until Doomsday^1. Thankfully, this liquid diet allows for coffee as long as I don't actually put any milk in it, so I have a nice french press full of Kona sitting on the counter, cooling to a drinkable temperature. I can have water, I can have tea. I have boullion. I have gatorade.

The directions for the Suprep are extremely vigorous in telling me to drink enough fluids to avoid dehydration once I take the Suprep. I'm not looking forward to this evening. I expect I'll be staking out the bathroom with the laptop. Poogling like a boss and all.

The storm is upon us, and it's not as ZOMFG!!!! as we were led to believe. At least, not yet. The roads are passable enough that, when I finish this and post it, I'm actually going to be driving Middlest... more »

Dear Friends, the White House wants to hear Obamacare "disaster" stories.

I plan on sharing the fact that the ACA saved me $150/mo in insurance payments and forced improvements to SC's state employee plans which covers breast cancer screenings. This came in handy when I had a scary situation, and helped insure that I could get free screenings to monitor future developments. The disaster would have been PRIOR to the ACA. It didn't save my life, but it did improve my quality of life through preventative healthcare.

Go tell your story. Bombard the link with positive accounts, and let this administration know the truth about how many have been helped by the ACA.

IDEFK what the hair is doing.

Enschoolenation is happening apace for all the Spawn, who are doing reasonably well in spite of the clock change.

I am meeting Eldest's bestie's mom for coffee this morning, so I put on my Adult Disguise and look like a grownup.

2 days to the colonoscopy, and I am officially watching what I eat. No fibrous fruits or veggies. No nuts, seeds, or corn. I think I need to hardboil some eggs. Like, what even is left to me now? Toast? Yogurt, today at least.

I'm wearing a pair of perfumes that mesh well on my skin. I wish you could smell me.

The clocks have sprung forward and the world has been saved! There two things are not specifically related.

I have showered, and after I did I slathered my face with Aquaphor. Here's hoping that my skin likes it enough to maybe not start totally flaking in an hour.

Game Night ran late, which was actually kind of awesome. We kicked things off with a complicated but fun co-op Lord of the Rings Game that +Adam Fromm brought; next time he comes he promised to bring the expansion that lets someone play as Sauron counter to the adventuring hobbits, and you KNOW that I have already called dibs. When we packed that away we capped off the evening with some Cards Against Humanity, and were all thoroughly horrible. I failed in my goal for the night, though, as Bethany out-horribled me by one card. ONE CARD! We both far out-horribled everyone else, though.

When we packed that away we capped off the evening with some Cards Against Humanity, and were all thoroughly horrible. I failed in my goal for the night, though, as Bethany out-horribled me by one card. ONE CARD! We both far out-horribled everyone else, though.

An additional facet to the evening was Rach bringing her eldest child with her; he's 6, and Youngest just turned 10, but despite that age gap they played really well together. They were mostly self-directing and, armed with chocolate chip cookies, they played Minecraft and built LEGO and did Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii. There was really only one contentious moment, and that's not really surprising considering that it was nearly midnight by that time. I am especially pleased that, despite his upset last night about it, Youngest seems to have synthesized the whole of the experience as having been fun and pleasant, rather than ruined by the one incident, and is looking forward to the kiddo coming over again. WINNING!

It's cold out again, so I don't expect any appreciable melt of the snow. I don't know when Middlest is going to be getting home, but Eldest won't be home for hours. Youngest is occupied in his own pursuits, and SALM has declared a glorious day of fuck-all for himself.

I, however, am feeling anxious. The colonoscopy prep starts today with a prohibition on fibrous veggies or fruits, nuts, seeds, or corn. I am going to try to be productive, and Landlord is thumping about in the upstairs apartment. Therefore, I am going to see if he's cool with me spending an hour or two hauling stuff up to the third floor from the basement. This lets me get things upstairs, which is awesome, and it won't be in the way of the impending carpet installers because the third floor isn't going to be getting carpeted. Additionally, Landlord asked me to clear a 3x3-foot space specifically for his tools in the basement, and the stuff I have in mind will make a totally sufficient space for him and be easily accessible from the basement exterior door.

So, that's my plan. But first, catch up on allllllll the notifications!

It's a bit dry here. I need to lotion mah facemeats.

Middlest will be leaving shortly to spend the night at G!bestie's house, after which SALM and I are taking Yoongest grocery shopping and on a Pokédrive.

I can hear the landlord banging around upstairs though; I'm going to go ask him if I can measure spaces, so I can sort out the fitting in of furniture when the time comes.

Check out the hella smooth look I spotted for enschoolenation and PO visiting. Eat your heart out, Galadriel.

Bonus pictures! Spawnfather's mother sent Youngest a birthday card containing not only Some Monies, but also this sweet American flag patch that I am pretty sure came off one of his deceased grandfather's navy uniforms. This morning while he ate oatmeal and we watched a video on mini farming setups to harvest meats and veg in Minecraft, I sewed it on to the back of the hoodie. His delight, I think, speaks for itself.

It is a Friday fly-day; I am driving Eldest out to the Spawnfather's for the weekend. Of course it is snowing. Blargh.

I'll prolly watch back episodes of Z Nation while I do so.

Yesterday during my hangout with Murphy we accidentally uncovered one of the deep and non-obvious fears I have about my colonoscopy next week, and I spent some time talking with SALM about it last night so that when the time comes and he is helping me recover, it doesn't become a surprise issue throwing wrenches in the works, or what-have-you.

And another part of me decided to leak blood again, but only a little.

Sooooo I'm using G+ from my phone a lot more lately - partly because some of the positions most physically comfortable to me aren't entirely conducive to comfortable laptop use, but mostly because notifications are totally fucked up and making me cranky.

A lot of things are making me cranky lately. It's the waiting and the not knowing, mostly. What rankles is that even if the diagnosis is the worst case scenario I still won't feel justified in my crankiness, and if it's just like a really vigorous internal hemorrhoid then I will feel even worse about being so cranky.

Today's to-do:

- watch video(s) on thinning oil paints
- attempt to thin some paint and paint the background on a canvas
- writing Hangout with +Murphy Jacobs
- laundry maybe?
- make sure the kitchen and living room are fucking spotless... more »

Girls Just Want To Have Fun(damental Rights)
The Oxford Belles, an all-female a cappella group from Oxford University, just dropped an awesome version of Cindy Lauper's song for International Women's Day 2017.

The video not only features the a cappella group's mellifluous singing, it also shows leading Oxford academics holding signs with feminist messages for International Women's Day. "Why does the term career woman exist when the term career man never has?" reads a sign by lecturer Mary McMenamin.

Happy International Women's Day!

And before it's asked... yes there is an International Men's Day. An official one, rather than the regular days where we get more pay and power and privilege. It's Nov 19th so STFU.

A call for help in the indistinct but near future

So in case anybuggy missed it, we got the upstairs apartment. This rocks. 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms.

We officially move on April 1. However, the landlords are giving us the keys early, as soon as carpets go in, so we have extra time to haul stuff up. I'm going to be spending my days and much of my weekends carrying things up and up and up.

This is gonna be hell on my knees.

But I am taking the advice of many, and asking for help when I need it! Who, among my local Blisstopians, would be willing/able to help with a little hauling - coming over for a morning or an evening once I have keys and spending an hour or two carrying up, and then some time hanging out?

mornthing

Last night I discovered that if I brush my hair while sitting cross-cross-applesauce on the bed, it falls into my knees. What an odd and marvelous sensation. It needs a trim though.

The tummy is unhappy but I am miming toast anyway, because I am meeting with Eldest's friend's mom for coffee at 10 and need to be able to stomach that.

7 days till the colonoscopy.

Yesterday's big news that I never got around to posting on its own is that I'm an auntie again! My sister was scheduled to got for a C-section in two weeks, but little A-Dude decided he was ready come out. Long story short? Youngest now has a birthday buddy. The nibblet is adorbs. He looks neither like Mister Burns nor Winston Churchill. Lilycakes is delighted.

I have spent some time mentally scowling at the effed up warp that was supposed to become the baby blanket. I thought I had weeks. Now I'm late.

Ah well. I will get it done when I get it done.

mornthing

I didn't realize how bad the dark circles under my eyes are getting until I took off my glasses and snapped a closeup of my eyes to show someone what color they are. Holy shit, ya'll - I look like crap.

8 days to the colonoscopy.

Youngest's birthday was a HUGE SUCCESS, and an exciting thing happened as well that I will be giving its own separate post later today. Right now, the streamers and ribbons are still up; I'm going to employ the Spawn in taking them down later.

Right now I am digesting my bagel - I actually ate real breakfast! - and sipping on my coffee. My writing Hangout is slated to start later than usual today, and I am trying to decide if I am going to use my extra time to attempt to do recording, or to re-prep the warp for the baby blanket I'm making for my sister, or if I'm going to give in to the fuckarounds... more »

Or maybe I should read more of the stuff I'm supposed to have read for someone who is keeping me on a small monthly retainer for opinion-having developmental editory purposes.

HEY WRITERS! Do you have a trunk novel/short story/novella/etc. that you want a professional opinion on whether it can be saved and if so how, or if it should go so far back in the trunk it burrows through the floorboards and gets immolated in the fiery depths of earth? Do you need someone to regularly poke and prod you to do the words-putting-into-sentences-doing and see how things are coming along with your WIP? I am hireable for the having of informed opinion and the digital reminderypokery. I'm like the Muse from Oglaf, with (slightly) fewer mortal beatings. ^_~

How are things with you guys? What's going right for you?

How do you handle emotional strain when you need to know something but there is literally nothing you can do but wait?

I want to play some Otome games. Recommend me things? Free stuff with links pls?

I'm partly trying to parse out specifically what the defining characteristics are, ad how many times/ways a storyline traditionally reasonably branches (and are there ever "bad endings" as such like with CYOA stories?) so I can try making one.

I'm partly just addicted to the damn things and my free passes on Episode don't regen fast enough for my liking.

mornthing

Somebody asked me once if I even could arch my eyebrow, so there you have it. My face is ambiflextrous.

It is Youngest's birthday! He is 10 today, and so excited about double digits. I was really worried about him putting too much pressure on the day, but he really rolled with it. Eldest drew a birthday card for him and left it, along with his present, at the foot of the bed. It was an excellent way for the boy to wake up. I made the children chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, and they were a hit, even though the chips sank into the batter such that you couldn't even see they spelled out a big 10 for him.

I just got the store for paper streamers, some ribbons, floaty balloons, and an ice cream cake. I am going to decorate the kitchen so it feels really birthday-y for him. Idefk what the plan is for dinner, yet, but we will figure something... more »

I hope his school day goes well.

My day is decorating, maybe making some phone calls. Maybe some other stuff.

I have been trying to wrangle some really big feelings, and I have been struggling. I cried myself to sleep. My dreams were strange.

9 days till the colonoscopy. Whyyyyyy.

I love this dress so much - it is SO comfortable, SO pretty, and SO does not fit on my boobs anymore. Sooooo it's for sale!

It'a a Dress Barn Woman size 16. I am 5'2" and it his just below the knee. It can be worn with or without the little cropped jacket. The netting underneath is soft, has a ribbon edge for non-itchiness, AND is attached to smooth comfy interfacing if you hate net petticoat wrinkles under your thighs when you sit, which I sure do. It is in good condition, requiring no repair. The black ribbony-type belt that came with it - same fabric as the straps - is no longer with us, but the belt loops are still there if you want to use another belt or swap in black (or blue) ribbon of your own. The back falls high enough that it is usually pretty decent about keeping the bra band covered.

Are you interested? Make me an... more »

mornthing

My insides are a mess, but my outsides are clean!

Stuff is black instead of red and I am not certain this is an improvement.

SALM is awesome. He made breakfast, and now he is checking his basement stuff for non-flammable turpentine, so that I might not have to buy some thinner to do the oil paint Circular Gallifreyan paintings properly. Then again, I might have to. We shall see.

I have little stories percolating in the back of my mind. I am not writing them down just yet.

I am playing a game. It is Sierra's most recent (afaik) installation in the King's Quest series. In it, King Graham is very aged, and you get to play as his adventure-yearning granddaughter. This pleases me to no end.
