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.

Check it out here:

Do Remember Chewing Salt, my first story written in 24 hours, is now up on my flash fiction blog!

A journey back through the memories of a woman, focused around ritual salt-eating.

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:

Also worth noting, I took zero damage in Act 3. I think that's brag-worthy.

Ah, poop. Stupid tooltip obscures some of the stuff. Think you can still see the relics well enough so it's not too bad.


The combination of Unceasing Top, Ice Cream, and a bunch of zero-cost bards is really powerful.

Alpha also packs quite a punch in elite battles, if you can get it going.

Love "The Princess Bride"? See someone watch it for the first time.

This is what social media is for.

If, in your worldbuilding you decide that there is an oppressed underclass, and your main character isn't one of them or directly involved in fighting for them, you gotta ask yourself why.

Apparently "TwitterLGBT" is trending over on birdsite, and it's mostly a sea of young, cis, white, conventionally attractive folks.

A few bright spots of diversity here and there, but not very many of them.

The most annoying parts of a Canadian winter:

- Freezing rain
- Deep cold
- Ice pellets
- Rex Murphy writing another fucking editorial about how Trudeau's carbon tax is the worst because there was a bad snowstorm somewhere.

Well, that's not bad. Second run on The Watcher got me to floor 31, without looking at any guides, discussions or Reddits.

Certainly better than my first, which had me die on floor 13.

Just started snowing here, 15-20 cm expected this afternoon and tonight. Nothing like what Nfld. got and honestly I'm not complaining. The snow pack is really low for this time of year and it just feels *wrong*.

Having some drifts in the back yard would be comforting.

I'm going to try the new Slay the Spire character over at in about 15 minutes. See you in the chat!

Senpai might not have noticed you.

But I did.

...I did.

Hi! I'm going to be playing some Linux games over at in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: MMORPG Tycoon 2 and GRAL. I'll also kick-off a Black Mesa playthrough. See you in the chat!

Woo, chilly morning! -21C with a -31C wind chill.

Glad I don't need to go anywhere, that's all I can say.
