Next year I'm cycling the face paint back to the first design I did when we first started the Halloween danceout tradition. It goes:

Some sort of creepy tree spirit
Frankenstein's monster
Evil pumpkin face

and if I have to keep thinking of new ones, I'm going to have to start getting into cats and bats and so on, and that's just too much

On the left is our biologically homegrown broccoli and on the right is store-bought usda organic. All that chlorophyll on the left floret is a symptom of the biologically diverse and abundant soil in which it was grown. Chlorophyll-rich foods are so deeply nourishing. Idk what the heck this anemic broccoli is the usda calls organic. πŸ€”

Broccoli has been a tricky crop for us to learn to grow, but oh my if it was not so worth it.

Great day out dancing round town. It's amazing how 1.5 years without has left the public actually excited to see it again. We have NEVER been this popular :)

Almost pouring the teapot's contents over myself whilst mesmerised by a Sir David Attenborough documentary is possibly the most British thing I've done lately.

Finished 'Sphere' - despite all the annoyances it was not a bad book, and I might try something else by him if I stumble across it.

Verdict on the ending - 'Good for her.'

Michael Crichton writes like a man being paid by the word.

website made by someone who describes themself as "a dipshit who doesn't know how to use computers" and hosted on a raspberry pi or some random VPS: loads instantly, well designed, easy to navigate

website made by fortune 500 company, with teams of designers, programmers, and servers in 8 countries: takes a full minute to load, layout shifting around the whole time, breaks if you have 1 browser add-on, the page you want can only be accessed via a third party search engine, gets worse every year

Hey, it's Ace Week, so now feels like a good time to remind you about one of my favourite fantasy novels, OUR BLOODY PEARL.

Our bloody pearl has a non-binary man-eating mermaid protagonist, a gentle pirate love interest, and is the kind of fantasy that is full of hope and kindness and recovery from past harm.

Not only are there a great many queer characters, but the romance is also asexual.

I absolutely adore it.

Finally for Ace Week, if I'm allowed to self-promo a bit, I'm an asexual author who has published two books with asexual protagonists and ace romance.

Trying to write the kind of books I've always wanted to read!

BOOKS & BONE is a haunted but oddly sweet story of librarians and necromancy.

NON-PLAYER CHARACTER is a cosy queer portal fantasy where a group of TTRPG nerds in their 30s must navigate the world of their game.

Ugh. Middle aged white man saves the world from the irrational fears of the white woman and the black man while literally carrying them to safety on his back.
Sphere by Michael Crichton
There's still a chapter left. Maybe it still has time to redeem itself? I doubt it but I can hope
