The upside to having mild eczema is that I am a better soapmaker because my skin is so sensitive I can easily tell an okay bar from a mediocre bar. I definitely can tell the difference between a good storebought soap and a nice handmade bar with a big superfat!

Grateful to those at the conference I'm attending who use the microphone instead of asking those of us with hearing difficulties to raise our hands if we can't hear. (& then half the time people speak up for a short period & then speak quietly again).

A gentle reminder that it's really not about whether one likes using the mic, or thinks one is loud enough w/o it, but rather about how one sounds to others, & there are lots of folks w/different levels of hearing out here!

I got Necrodancer, by the way! It's really challenging but fun.

I gotta sleep but first look at my pal, this red eft who was just. HANGIN OUT IN THE DRIVEWAY as I was taking seedlings out this morning.

The reason I play so many indie games isn't necessarily because I feel I should actively support indie makers (though I do) or because I can't afford a lot of AAA games, (because I can't). It's because it's one of the few ways I can play games that feature actual emotional storylines, half decent female characters, and gay characters that are more that a side quest.

I really want a new video game but I am torn. Help me decide?

With all shared pop culture now being owned by a handful of megacorps, maybe it's time people started deliberately making more open source characters anyone can use and build on.
Like slender Man, but for every genere.

I mean, we already have all of mythology and 19th century litrature characters,
But I would love to see entirely new stuff. The return of cultural stories. Collective folk characters for the current world.
