It was meltingly hot, which was a problem for someone made of ice.
She stared at her hands, normally a perfect cloudy glass, now slick and shrinking.
'That's it,' said her roommate. 'You're coming to work with me.'
The cold storage at the supermarket was bitingly refreshing and she soon felt like herself again.
Her roommate's co-workers were all very understanding. 'There just isn't good air con in the UK,' said one. 'Sometimes I think about hiding in there myself!'
Doom Kitty is 10 weeks old today and enjoys 'helping' in the kitchen, and by that I mean laying on a cushion at my feet and attacking any and all suspicious shadows. #caturday

Hello @3goodthings !
My #3GoodThings for today:
- Donut for breakfast!
- Cats are continuing to use their new exercise wheel! I can't tell who's using it but I can hear the thrumming of the wheel from the next room over.
- Improvised smashed cucumbers with black vinegar and chili crisp and chili sesame oil to go with leftover Chinese takeout, and it turned out pretty good! Usually I need to follow a recipe even if it's something I've made many times before.
The points in my Aurora Blue shawl may look complicated, but let me tell you a little secret: they're easy as pie! I made them by pulling the edges of the shawl into points during blocking. The pattern includes links to a photo tutorial showing how I block this shawl shape, as well as to the various stitches & techniques used 😃
One of the things I miss about the Google plus interface was how easy it was to search for/find & create small communities of interest.
I wish there was a way to do that more simply in the fediverse.
So, where are my spec fic writers at???
I see a post capitalist version of Stardew Valley as being based on meeting demand. The mechanic would revolve around surveying the villagers for their needs and desires, and delivering the crops necessary to meet them. Ideally, the farm would operate at a surplus, to allow for food preservation, which would be another mechanic, like storing hay in the barn, do you have enough food put by for the winter for the humans, and for a limited amount of external trade for rare resources.
