We made a thing! Now the chickens will be safe from predators.

We still have a bit of decorative work to do, but the structure is solid and the chickens are in.

Here I am, sitting in my office, crying like an idiot. This poem, The Raincoat by Ada Lim贸n, hit me more than I thought it would. (via Delegar)

TIL: "butt dial" and "booty call" aren't actually synonyms.

Hey, consultants. If you make your living talking via a headset on your computer (i.e. gotomeeting), please, for the love of the gods, get something semi-decent. Please? I can't handle these meetings where I hear every inhale and wheeze. I am on week 5 of daily sprints and my sanity is slowly being chipped away more than it would be for having attended 5 weeks of daily sprints.

Organising, Being Local 

To all the artists out there who keep making art, you have my respect. No matter the medium, keep being creative!

I am missing one of my Red Dwarf disks and have a sad!

First aid kit assembled and loaded with items I am trained to use. I need to put more in, but I will wait (be responsible) and get training/certified before donning the 'street medic' hat.

It took months to get to this (the final) stage. Finding an artist I liked who did the style that I wanted was worth the effort. I have wanted this tattoo for years and finally decided to do it. I couldn't be happier.

New Tattoo! Woodcut style illustration of a book with a rocket and a dragon coming out of it ('cause those two genres sparked my love for reading). #tattoo #books

As much as we should push for Free/Libre or Open Source software, if there鈥檚 one thing I hate more than anything its DRM. DRM makes it so you don鈥檛 even own the things that you purchase.. I say that鈥檚 bullshit.

support DRM-Free sources:

I woke up insanely early after some particularly dark dreams that were bordering on comedy material. I don't usually remember my dreams, but this is some weird shit. So... good morning?

Alright horror fans, what movies should I add to my list?
