Mmmmm, great, this life changes thing is making me nauseous today. Exactly what I needed.

During break at home, cat was trying once again to fully wrap himself around my head
We’ve got a couple candidate cities picked out (to possibly move to). Tried to get a feel for each city by looking at city newsletter. Same content as any other, various levels of design skill.
Looked at online reviews of city hall. Also all the same: average of 2 stars. All city halls piss someone off.

So, since we’re moving I wanted to get rid of some dried veg and all the fish sauce, so I made a kind of “to hell with it” green curry and dumped everything in (a lot of fish sauce!)
It turns out you really can never have too much fish sauce! And coconut milk. It was spectacular.
I'm looking to make a few changes as I prepare for a potential transition.
One of the things I want to change is my identity here on the fediverse. I have a new name in mind, and I'd like to get rid of the picture of the TV mast and have a picture of me that reflects my gender identity in a way that a photograph right now wouldn't.
To that end, I'd like to commission someone to do a profile picture for me. Does anyone have any recommendations? Boosts are fine.
@Sacchan husband reports cat must’ve spent the entire night cocooned up in blanket because he was still under there in the morning! So cute

@Sacchan or on second glance it’s more like kiskadees
I had a short stint at a national lab during my first go at grad school. One time a scientist in a different group came by to tour the observatory and he randomly started telling us about how he studied bees and radioactivity. He’d accidentally let the hive get too big and the hive divided and half of his radioactive bees flew away never to be seen again. I think about those bees a lot. Like, how to you even begin to describe that in a paper? “Oops, lost my radioactive bees.”

I don’t have a lot to say, so here’s a semi recent pic of a Japanese striped snek who has curled up into the “Don’t Come Any Closer I Mean It Buddy” pose because I’d startled it coming around the corner on my run.
Sorry little friend.
