  • I'm done with my academic work for the year, but I'll probably still be busy until March or even April. But my MSc is nearing completion, so I'm relieved.

    I can't get back to writing full-time for my storybooks, as I had hoped, but I'll see if I can at least write a post or two for any that are still alive. I make no promises, however.

  • Leonard Cohen wrote:Everybody knows that the dice are loaded;
    Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed.
    Everybody knows the war is over;
    Everybody knows the good guys lost.
    Everybody knows the fight was fixed;
    The poor stay poor, the rich get rich.
    That's how it goes —
    Everybody knows.

    This was a sad day to check the international news. I don't know what to say. Oh gods.

  • I keep wanting to say things here, but then I either lose my motivation, or I become too busy with other things, and suddenly, it's next week. :|

    Well, whatever. Have an egg with a hat.


    We'd bought eggs a while back, and as I packed them away, I noticed one had broken and was stuck to the carton packaging. I fancied myself a surgeon and decided to save the egg by cutting away the surrounding carton and then carefully removing the carton stuck to it. You know, so the egg could be free and we wouldn't have to throw it away.

    …Have you ever watched a series where somebody has been shot or stabbed or whatever and you're shouting at them not to remove the object penetrating them, except they do and then they start bleeding profusely? Yeah, that was me with the egg. Idiot. XD

    So, I cut it a new hat to hide the gaping head-wound and preserve it a bit longer until we'd eventually use it! It worked, since two days later, Mother used it in a pumpkin tart.

    I don't know if it's just me, but I thought the egg looked stylishly cute. :)

    Lib that is a very fancy egg with a hat

    BrumalHunter Thank you! Just as much thought has gone into it as with my usual one, so it's good to hear so many people like it.

The only person I know for certain I am better than is the person I used to be.
