Little self promotion here.

If you want to know when I get published with my YA sci-fi about superheroes or my adult fantasy about Wheel of Time trope subversion, here is my newsletter.

I won't be updating this until I'm published, so no worries about spam!

‪Omg!!! I am finally done painting the dragons on my new shield. All that is left is the handle, boss, and edging!

TW: Food

I made buttermilk biscuits.

Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of them cooked, as they all vanished without a trace the moment they came out of the oven.

Here is a picture of them in a cast iron skillet right before they went in!

Okay, I'm working on a tagline/elevator pitch for my new book, Murdering Fate. Open to thoughts!! It's adult fantasy trope subversion!

Doomed to die tragically, 46-year-old Jaelyn figures the only way to escape her fate is to murder the Gods who control destiny.

I want to start a food garden, but it's against the rules where I live. How do I grow food secretly? #gardening

lyric posting (to get it out of my head) Show more


The fortune teller regarded the crow perched upon her scrying orb. Her window was open, so its presence was not inexplicable.

It held in its beak a large silver coin.

"Are you an omen?" she asked in a cautious, polite tone.

The crow puffed up and shook its head, then dropped the coin into her payment bowl.

"Ah, I see," she murmured, taking a seat," This will work better if you sit elsewhere."

The crow hopped down obediently.

@kaniini Day ONE

A hacker comes into a restaurant and discovers that the salt shaker on the table can be unscrewed and one can pour anything into it. The hacker goes home and writes an angry letter to the manager of the restaurant: "I, meG@Duc, found a vulnerability in the salt shakers at your restaurant. An attacker can open them and pour poison inside! Take action immediately!"

The manager, among other business letters, requests for food deliveries and courier receipts finds the notification letter and shrugs: "Who could even come up with this nonsense?"

The hacker comes into the restaurant and pours poison in all the salt shakers. Three hundred people die, the manager is dragged three months in courts to prove the absense of a crime. The Hacker writes a letter in the style of "Well, I told you!".

Day 96
The manager orders his staff to buy specially designed salt shakers with a combination lock. Visitors of the restaurant feel like they are missing something very important in the meaning of life.

Day 97
The Hacker discovers that the holes in the salt shakers pass salt in both directions. And not only salt, anything! He writes an angry letter to the manager after pissing in all the salt shakers. Three hundred people stop visiting the restaurant forever, thirty get admitted to the hospital with food poisoning. The hacker sends an SMS to the restaurant manager: "How are you doing?". The manager is dragged through courts for three months and is released on probation.

Day 188
The manager vows to no longer work in any kind of food establishment, and to peacefully cut timber in Siberia. Engineers are working on a new one-way valve for a salt shaker. Waitresses in the meantime withdraw all the old salt shakers and distribute the salt by hand.

Day 190
The Hacker steals a salt shaker from the restaurant and carefully studies the device at home. He writes an angry letter to the manager: "I, meG@Duc, stole the salt shaker and I find this fact outrageous! Anyone can steal your salt shakers!" The previously fully sober manager goes home and drinks a bottle of vodka.

Day 193
The Hacker discovers that all the salt shakers in the restaurant are chained and nailed to the table. He arrives at a hacker conference and reports on his progress, getting a well-deserved reward for the protection of the interests of society and consumers. Fortunately, the manager never hears anything about it and will not die of alcohol poisoning, for now.

Day 194
As part of a diabolical, genius elaborate operation, BLACKHAT hackers break into the restaurant and pour all the salt from the salt shakers in their pockets. The Hacker meG@Duc writes an indignant letter to the manager, alluding to the fact that there is no concern for the visitors in the restaurant as any criminal can deprive honest people from salt in an instant. A salt dispenser with a one-time authorization is just necessary!

Engineers work in sweat on a new salt shaker, while waitresses hand out salt manually, again. The manager goes on vacation to the
Seychelles and has dinner only in his room, avoiding any canteens, restaurants and bars.

Day 200
Visitors of the restaurant find in horror that in order to pour salt, they must go to the waitress, show their passport and get a special 8-digit one-time code to the shaker. For pepper they should repeat the procedure.

Little dog is visiting me. I gave her a bath. then, she went outside and... well... 🤦‍♀️

having to get up before sunrise every day again just because some asshole a couple hundred years ago said we should set our clocks an hour forward in the spring is really demoralizing

Guess who is going to see Captain Marvel again?!?

Okay, I'm trying to remember the title of a book I wanted to read. One word, I think it started with a T, concept was a scifi world where people are born carrying one, more, or none of the seven sins and their lives are determined by their sin-carrying status.

If your gender isn’t described by the M/F binary, please come and take part in this survey.

PLEASE NOTE that it asks questions about intimate topics like the gender you were assigned at birth, your hormones, surgeries you’ve had, etc.

I went to the Austin Renaissance Festival, Sherwood! Dressed up as an elf, with my armor, small sword, and buckler. Had a lot of fun!

So. Captain Marvel is good.

Yeah, it’s not the greatest (hard to beat Black Panther), but it’s up there in my top favs.

Heart, humor, spectacle. That’s what I want from my super hero movies and that’s what I got.

Go see it.
