Entropy and Homeostasis

      No Comments on Entropy and Homeostasis

My desk is a constant battleground between entropy and its love of disorder, and homeostasis and its attempt to balance itself. I managed to strike back again a little bit this afternoon, so I get to show it off, hee hee. It’s been a sluggish sort of day, which is fine. We got home in record time last night, and… Read more »

That Was Quick

      No Comments on That Was Quick

So, I rolled my character yesterday morning. I had work, I was out on a night, and then I had work again today. So, how am I level 34 already, ha ha. Granted, I’m currently on Expert difficulty, which is juuuuust about challenging. I think it’s the first time that I’ve ramped up the difficultly on a first run-through for… Read more »

Exploding Corpses for Fun and Profit

      No Comments on Exploding Corpses for Fun and Profit

After cacking up a few things and my bank getting whiny because I gave money to Blizzard (true story — all my Blizzard purchases get flagged), I was able to role myself a Necromancer this morning. Of course, I had to wait until after work and bath to give her a go, but man. I’m having serious fun. And that… Read more »

At Least They Don’t Know the Song

      No Comments on At Least They Don’t Know the Song

Which is to say, the torture that is Raffi’s Bananaphone is *not* a thing over here. Ironically, it wasn’t a thing in my life until I was an adult involved with Radio KoL; my parents never inflicted children’s ‘music’ on us that I can recall. Instead, we had good and probably inappropriate stuff like The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The… Read more »

Rar Rar Rar

      No Comments on Rar Rar Rar

I couldn’t tell you why exactly, but today I’ve been doing sock monster on my hands. I guess it’s just me surfing on the random weird waves of my brain, ha ha. Plus, sock monsters are fun, and seeing how far the sock is progressing along my fingers is, as usual, pleasing. Today has been a good day of doing… Read more »

How Does Your Garden Grow?

      No Comments on How Does Your Garden Grow?

While this colourway is called ‘Sugar Cookie’, it’s seriously like a rose to me. I love roses to some ridiculous degree, so this suits me. Like, I love roses to the point that I insisted (if possible) that I bring the roses my mother-in-law got me for my first Christmas in the UK here to the new house when we… Read more »

Too Many Pictures in the Year

      No Comments on Too Many Pictures in the Year

My mother-in-law’s birthday is in a few days, and her one request was that I whip up a new filler for the picture frame we got her last year. The filler currently in it was pictures of the girls from the previous year, so what I’m doing is the same again. As I’ve taken *thousands* of photos in the past… Read more »

One of These Things…

      No Comments on One of These Things…

  … is not like the other. One of these things is not a pen. Randomly spotting a set of crochet hooks amongst the pens amused me way more than it probably should have. But as we were on the aisle for pens, I couldn’t resist looking. We’d popped into the store to pick up a birthday card for one… Read more »

Другой День, Другой Доллар

Or, in English — ‘Another day, another dollar’. That is never more true than on the first working day of the month. A new month means doing year end accounts for anything ending the previous month, and those need to be done as fast as possible. There’s only three from May, and I’ve got two of them pretty much turned… Read more »

Executive Toddler Strikes Again

      3 Comments on Executive Toddler Strikes Again

I’m going to have to think up a new job title for her soon, seeing how she’s almost out of the toddler phase. We passed on her original title of ‘lazy assistant’ to her cousin W back in the States, one that his mother is using to good effect. I suspect that she’ll be happy to take on this title… Read more »
