Shanna pirate face

Still with the keeping on

I'm still home by myself. I'm still at the decreasingly-new job. I'm doing a perfectly tolerable job of cleaning and feeding myself and so on. It's odd re-adjusting to one-guy-size shopping, cooking, etc.

It's hot lately. Fair enough, it's nearly July.

That game Kickstarter I backed hasn't quiiiite made it to "funded", though it'll happen tomorrow or the next day I expect. The same studio did a really neat game called "Contrast" about jumping through shadows to get at things you want. The one I backed is about a bizarre retro-future 1960s, being forced to conform and, in some sense, quiet alienation from everything around you. Have I mentioned how happy I am that it's cheaper to make games these days and we're seeing some different ones? I really am.

If you didn't see or listen to President Obama's eulogy for Rev. Pinckney, go do that. This is the full-throated defense of Black America that we've been waiting for from Obama. I'm glad he made it here.

I'm on day three of a four-to-eight-day caffeine break. I need them now and again to keep caffeine effective. I'm dragging, but not as much as I expected.

Some Ruby authors, me included, are getting together for a summer bundle sale -- everybody's stuff at half-or-so off, etc. We'll see how it turns out. I'm glad somebody wanted to organize it -- yay for getting to participate :-)

I have days when I feel very energetic. I have days when lots gets done. It's interesting how often they're not the same days.

Okay, that's me for now. Talk at you later.
Healthier kind of disgusting

My feet

I'm getting a sudden window into the world of you people with, like, normal foot skin.

After using the foot grater for a bit, my heels now actually move. Like, the skin bends instead of remaining as a disc-shaped armor plate.

I'm not sure I approve. It's possible you're all weirdos and you just haven't figured that out yet. Just so you know.
