I'm a miserable twat on tw*tter so on Mastodon I will be your cheerleader. I will give advice! I will be fffuuunnnn. I will be your soundboard. I will provide both cat and dog photos to help heal your day. I will read you a book in my stuffy English accent before you go to bed.


Gut update. On some probiotic that's €1.20 a pill. Was given to me when this all first started three years ago but I then had it managed so encouraged good bacteria through better eating.

Back on it, and it's doing its job. But there are side effects.

Gas. Lots of intestinal gas that I CAN'T TRUST.

Anyone out there a closet billionaire who would like to fund fiber broadband to my house? Like you could be a closet millionaire.

Seriously. What makes the fact I have satellite only fecking ridiculous is the telephone exchange is on the other side of the hill to us. But they run the cable down that valley, around and back up ours. Which means the phone line is a charger line. So. No. Broadband.

Ceramics class. Followed by communications. Followed by errand run in town and two maki rolls.

Having fun with my red pen and doodling a vampire sitting on a roof top during full moon smoking a cigarette. You know, the usual. :D

Room 101, the infamous torture chamber in Orwell's 1984, is named for a conference room at BBC Broadcasting House, where Orwell would have to sit through tortuously boring meetings.

Getting a quote for either:
1. Hydro electric
i. If the fisheries board approves
ii. If we can generate enough consistent power to draw from
iii. If the environmental agency approves.
2. Solar and battery storage
i. If our power draw is low enough that our roof can hold the panels
ii. If the SEAI grant can cover a lot of the costs.
iii. Possibly inside a protected area so the solar panels miGhT ImpAct ThE AeSTHetic of THe HisTorICal ArEA. Because our squat concrete 2007 house doesn't?

"My experience in Amsterdam is that cyclists ride where the hell they like and aim in a state of rage at all pedestrians while ringing their bell loudly... My dream holiday would be
a) a ticket to Amsterdam
b) immunity from prosecution and
c) a baseball bat"


It was a good day today.

Also came home to husband baking:
* Shortbread
* Pistachio and chocolate shortbread
* bourbons biscuits

Tomorrow we go to the farm for a good old fashioned Sunday lunch. Unfortunately the bratty nephew who ruined everyone's Christmas will be there as well.

Épreuve 01 / 17 
model : Sonyna Heroine

After many tests, this first print is finally printed. First a drawing from life of Sonyna, then a scan. To engrave with the cnc, I operated a magnification of the scan and vectorize the scan in my own way. Once engraved, here on Plexiglas, the proof is inked and passed through a press like any intaglio engraving (my press is a pasta machine, medium of the edge).

Finally got around attending croquis lesson at local art museum. I felt very rusty but it was very nice.

Hey so sales are kinda bad this month, at this rate I won't be able to pay my bills (like rent, or food for the creature I accidentally summoned)
If you like my art and want to help you can either:
- check out my shop
- toss me a coin
- just boost this
Thanks a lot!

I just changed my message received tone on my phone to the AIM message received chat tone. I'm so 90s it hurts.

Holy fuck Westworld season three. Urgh! Two season rewatch coming up!
