I very rarely fib, so, yes :-)

1. What was the last thing you put in your mouth?
Homemade fried rice, using crushed peanuts and chopped leftover bacon for the protein.

2. Where was your profile picture taken?
It's not a photograph.

3. Worst pain you've ever experienced?
The incision that runs from two inches above my waist, all the way down to the fold.

4. Who was the last person to make you laugh?
A wacky wood-turner on YouTube.

5. How late did you stay up last night?

6. If you could move somewhere else, where would it be?
I like it well enough here, and moving is a pain in the arse. But if I find myself getting rich, I'd probably move to a really nice place in NYC, and pay other people to do all the hard work of moving.

7. Ever been kissed under fireworks?
Why would I do that? I wouldn't be able to see the fireworks!

8. Which of your Facebook friends lives closest to you?
I continue to refuse to have anything to do with Facebook.

9. How do you feel about turkey burgers?
Waste of good turkey!

10. When was the last time you cried?
Last week, more or less.

11. Who took your profile photo?
It's not a photo.

12. Who was the last person you took a picture with
I don't like having my picture taken.

13. What's your favourite season?

14. If you could have any career.

15. Do you think relationships are ever worth it?
Oh dear Goddess, YES!

16. If you could talk to ANYONE right now who would it be?
Any of several people in faraway places (you know who you are).

17. Are you a good influence?
I try very hard not to be!

18. Does pineapple belong on pizza?
I can't eat pizza - I'm allergic to tomatoes, onions, garlic, mushrooms, and cheese. And even if I could eat pizza, I utterly loathe pineapple.

19. You have the remote, what channel are you watching?
I don't watch TV, except New Year's Eve and the 4th of July fireworks.

20. Who do you think will fill this out?
archangelbeth: An anthropomorphic feline face, with feathered wing ears, and glasses, in shades of gray. (Default)

Am convincing child to try eating straw wrappers as a mood-improvement thing. (Look, the stuff probably still has hormones from the trees in it, and/or it might provide an interesting roughage for gut bacteria. LET ME HAVE MY PLACEBO OKAY.)

Spent about an hour poking at Copper Leaf Bargains and re-reading stuff and fixing a single small inconsistency, but otherwise not getting any noticeable wordcount, blah.

Trash night.

(Oh, hey, back to December 2016 for the GURPS stuff!)

arcangel cannot spell LaForge's first name anymore because In Nomine. Hush.
arcangel then goes to one of the random videos near that and NO. BISHONEN VOLDEMORT IS NO.
arcangel says, "JUST NO."
--Seriously, I'm traumatized here.

It didn't do so for the physical world with its main character, who was hunting a killer in the Cloud World of the AIs.

It did so for the physical world with two of the supporting characters.

One was a detective working the case of the robot that'd killed.

The other programmed that kind of robot.

Their conversation turned to development. )

So I guess this being labeled a Two-Face story is a bit of a spoiler but then again the title isn't exactly a subtle one. In addition to the expected character moments I also chose this story for how it depicts Bruce Wayne.

Good things today, yesterday, this past weekend:

Basically the whole camping trip. Though not the getting ready for it, which was a Thing.

Especially the ocean. Ocean!!!

The gift of time, and listening, and care.


Solar eclipse!!! Eclipse glasses in the mail, not a day too late. Early grumpy wake-up. Dawn while driving dark winding roads; morning by a wild river. Stopping at a camp store on a highway deep in the woods. Rambling around, looking at the sun through trees, judging angles. A book, a fern meadow, a cup of hot coffee, a path by a pond, a return just in time. Unexpected friends with a telescope!

An orange bitten circle, crescent, sliver, shrinking.

Ripples of auroral light along the road. Dusk over the pine trees, and a planet shining in twilight blue. A blazing ring around the dark circle, and light expanding to impossible brightness. The sun revealed again.

Seeing friends; visiting their farm; horses, chickens, dogs, alpacas!!!

A tuft of alpaca wool. A handful of blackberries. Cold water given in hospitality.


Getting some chores done. Fine sandpaper, good work gloves, and other tools. Cookies.

A favorite sweater.

Uncertainty. It may be uncomfortable, but it is a gift.

(I'm going Out East to a funeral, with S, and when I come back it'll be the new school year at work, and there's so much I was going to get done that I haven't, and so many experiences I've had that I would not have traded away. I'm not feeling ready, but I'm not totally lost either, I think...I have some hope, and some foundations to build on, and some goals, and some good reassuring things; what I don't have is clarity. I guess I'll muddle on ahead.)


And oh, the light...

I was looking at a catalog today and found the most frightening t-shirt I've seen in a while.

The design was meant to be patriotic and comforting -- a kitten looking out from under a draped American flag. I can't fault the idea, though it's not to my taste.

However-- on a shirt? The kitten is all head and it's huge -- the size of a small leopard. And with the shading, it appears to be emerging from the wearer's chest, confidently searching for more food...

Facebook Kittens/Alien.

Not for the win. ewwww.
