Guess who just made and posted her very first Twine game? This girl, that's who!

It's short, it's basic, but it's mine. And, hopefully, a bit of fun to read.

For the folks who have followed me over from dot social, and new followers as well, I have a brand new Ko-fi set up if you like what I'm doing on Mastodon or on my website. You can buy me a "coffee" (even though I prefer tea) here:

If you want to read a bunch of free stories (and I'm working on a new one right now for the site), my website is here:


Who will the Tories pick to run the country next? Based on past performance, it could be Judge Death, Beaker from the Muppets, or an attractive lampshade.

@maloki @Nezchan my understanding is that he's resigning but there is controversy about whether he will step down immediately or whether he will stay in power until the autumn when a leadership election can be held

Huh. Not watching British politics anything near closely, but I'm a bit surprised BoJo actually pulled the switch.

I thought he'd just be stubborn and sacrifice others for as long as he needed.

Yeah, making sweet sriracha roasted peanuts is a good idea.

Pity it'll take until tomorrow, but hey. It's still a good idea.

Okay, I'm gonna say it.

Cyborg Slaves of Satan would 100% be a DOOM theme cover band and I would listen to that shit every day.

PSA for indie authors:

A blurb and a plot summary are two different things. Please do not confuse them.

Me (a trans-nb game dev) and my Native American fiance are trying to raise money for him to move cross country and secure us a travel trailer for longterm housing. He has to be out of his current apartment by August 22nd.

We are trying to raise $5,000 which I know is a MAJOR ask, but even some of this would help us figure out alternative options to make this all work out.

solving the problem of "rich people reinventing public transit because they like the idea, except for the fact they have to be around poor people" by adding luxury-class seats to every bus and train

I really, *really* wanted to like McCaffrey's Harper Hall stories, but re-reading them I can't get past the constant "Being a Harper is only for boys, but Menolly is okay because she's Not Like the Other Girls". It's just so ever-present.

Only three of those are actually good, if I'm being honest.

I have read six books this year.

Yes, that's not very impressive. But somewhere along the line I got out of the habit of reading , and I'm deliberately trying to make myself do it.

Hold up, if birds are dinosaurs, should we start calling a male T-rex a cock?

A huge cock.

Weird moment while out cycling today. I was on the NCC MUPs near the river, which winds in and out of forested areas and long grass (it's a paved trail). Very pastoral.

And I realized that I've been watching way too many YouTube cycling/urbanism videos because I found myself expecting people waling on the pathway to be speaking Dutch.

Long bike rides with a strong headwind and hills at the end when you're worn out are...bad, actually.

This message brought to you by being so drained I was nauseous and had to stop for a while and put my head in my hands.
