Pinned oot

As we come up to the end of the month, it is a good time to mention that I have posted a weekly chapter for about four years now. While free to read, my writing is supported by ( and Typewriter Press ( among others.

I don't really do much with tiers at all, $1/month gets you access to all my works in progress, polls for the next projects, and my appreciation. I also try to listen to suggestions or requests to the best of my ability.

Years ago, I had to limit myself to one website rewrite a year otherwise I would be constantly redoing my four major sites. However, now I want to set up Fedran on Gemini, but it looks like I need a static site generator for that which means I have to suffer/wait until 2021.

But do I really want to lose a few months writing a new one on a different site? Out sick with Gatsby knowing it won't work for what I need?

... so tempting.

It's going to be one of those mornings. Last night was pancakes and bacon, which my stomach didn't care for. So while I was waiting for generic petpo bismo to kick in, I wrote 3k words and watched two episodes of MacGyver.

Exhausted, but I like getting closer to finishing something by their deadline (this is my 8-10k submission every month).

Burger King's Impossible sausage breakfast is really good. I like the Impossible lines.

Though, my local place keeps say "no beef" when they mean "broiler blew up again" so they get frustrated when I order the Impossible whopper. 🙂

i love it when the conlang community gets spicy

Fun fact: the USS Enterprise-D requires 1,014 crew... five people to run the ship, and 1,009 A/V technicians to make the viewscreeen work.

According to my calendar, Enola Holmes and multiplayer Untitled Goose Game both drop today and I don't know which one makes me happier.

The Perfect Companion

Sinair had retired from a life of travels and adventures but now his father had intentions to marry him off. However, Sinair had no interest in a wife or husband. He just wanted to live his life with

"This is getting tiresome," I say.
"You think I don't know?" my future self says. "Trust me, I wouldn't go back in time to tell me not to do a thing if it wasn't important."
"Fine. But this is the seventh time I stop myself! Won't I ever learn?"
"It happens to you too?"

The wall of his cell was ripped out. Dr. Dastard blinked at the silhouette in the air outside.
"Captain Clever?"
"Come with me," the hero said. "You must try to take over the world."
"You got me locked up for that!"
"Yes. But... Haven't you been following the news?"
"Oh. Right."

The final coat is on and they are drying, but I want to use them *now*.

Could folks please boost this out as far as possible? I want to get it into gender-critical circles.

Could people send me links to articles about specific incidences of cisgender men legally identifying as women in order to access female spaces and abuse cisgender women?

I got an idea of world building while staining the boys's desks. Patterned monochromatic tattoos along the wrists. Might be a nice touch for this chapter of Allegro.

I loved the novel Curse of the Azure Bond? That and Spellfire. Hated Elmister, loved the rest of the story.

Children going to bed early is like asking a horror movie to start in your house. You see rapidly moving creatures in the corner of your vision, flashes of movement in the door, and the vibrations of something crawling along the carpet.

This weekend was very busy in the tables but I didn't make it on time. I got the trim on and two coats of the blue stain, but the clear coats take four hours between and twenty four for the last. I'm going to do the second coat tonight and the third in the morning for Tuesday.

Bah, this young lady needs a name. She's getting too interesting to be a background character.

Once again, we're reminded that we need to go to Costco more than once every three months.

I'm also personal reminded that while I may go at packing (a cart) effectively, they won't let me help pack it again at the cashier.

For me personally, I don't know jack fucking shit about hacking, but I have a lot of concrete hobbies that would really benefit from some way to integrate tech for planning/tracking/labor-saving purposes. I bought a Raspberry Pi in 2015 and it sat in the damn box for 3 years because I didn't even know where to START with it. I still don't think I'm using it to its full potential.

Show me how to apply it! Don't just tell me "you can do anything with it"

It's funny what toddlers learn.

When my little Jamie told me "There's a gorgeous man in the garden" I was at first impressed they had retained such a big word, but quickly learned they had somehow observed my spouse say "Hello gorgeous" whenever I was getting changed.

Needless to say, I wasn't expecting a naked elf, utterly lost in my backyard. I gave him a towel and some directions; and now I have a fae boon I'm hesitant to utilize.
