And if I do my best and don’t stop to rest

Broken foot xray, where my middle toe bone is clearly snapped, detatched, and at a 90 degree angle

So far the most dangerous thing I’ve run into down here is myself 🙁 sure, your first huntsman is Always terrifying… but everything I’ve suffered from the most has come from my own, ah, accidents and mistakes 😅 Death blister’s gone, but then I went and dropped this 40lb scavenged glass tabletop onto my middle toe. Yeah, you can imagine how THAT went. I JUST got back onto my feet too, and here I am, back on couch-rest and unable to do much. I’m a serial pacer. Wandering around the house is essentially my form of fidgeting and now I’ve got this blasted metal rod jutting through my bones and out of my toe-front and It’s Been a Problem. Trying my best to stay off it but that’s so, so hard. Continue reading “And if I do my best and don’t stop to rest”


Tupperware it is! Picked up gardening supplies when I was visiting the parents this past weekend. Got a decent bin, with plenty of depth to get at least a few small veggies and leafy greens. Using the Hydro parts for an auto-watering soil garden only just makes it self-watering… so keeping them separated seemed like a much more enjoyable approach.

  • Lettuce
  • Carrots

  • Onions
  • Chive
  • Sunflowers

Not a bad start. Continue reading “Growing”

The one-two punch of BDYHAX followed up by Loopconf has left quite a heaping sum of thought on my mind. It’s the post mortem processing that’s taking a pinch longer than anticipated. Should I write up about each separately? The adventure as a whole? Technical breakdowns? Play by play? Barely lucid but colorful prose on the underlying existential crisis all throughout? Nothing? Anything?

1 and 1 and 5 and Q And…

Asking 1&1 support if the clear midday sky appears to be blue:

If I’m in a desert, they will tell me that I should walk down to the river (That doesn’t exist) and pick up the Jackalope or Wolpertinger (also not real things, and not related to where I’m sent) and bring them on down to the SpecificallyNamed market (Thats actually off in Cincinnati) if I decide I want the letter Q (when it’s a yes or no question). If I would rather #, I need to just do nothing for a week.
