Pinned toot

So in the last couple weeks, I signed up to become a Project Gutenberg proofreader. I've started trying to read a newspaper article a day in French to increase my fluency. I am putting together plans for an art blog page. I started reading Rumi. I have started learning a little Scottish Gaelic.

People: So what have you been up to lately?

Me: Uh.... *draws a blank* not much.

Pinned toot

I went to college for Art & Graphic Design. It was the first time I was completely surrounded by other creative oddballs and felt like I belonged somewhere.

A long time passed in the regular world where I didn't feel like that anymore.

Then I found out about Mastodon and this instance in particular.

Even though I don't post art as often as I post randomness, this is the first time in years I've had that feeling again.

Thank you all for being yourselves.

Them: "I pirated your video on freelancing. It's good, but I'm scared to go into this career because I'm really worried about rampant art theft. Any advice?"

Me: "..."

You know what, I decided to darken the Pepper&Carrot website for the next days. I hope this will draw attention to the risk that creators incur with censorship machines and upload filters everywhere.

Happy Ostara and full moon, friends! Today’s Tarot Draw is the High Priestess from the Sinking Wasteland Tarot at pixeloccult.com

The High Priestess represents a link to the subconscious. She is wise, understanding, and calm. This card encourages you to pay attention to your inner voice and intuition.

I should clarify that it *was* in a wrapper, I didn't just throw a bare block of butter on the counter for the cat to lick.

There were rough tongue marks on the butter again this morning.

Note to self: put softening butter in a container so the cat doesn't eat it anymore.

The dust & snow mold out there is closing off my throat just a smidge, but I'll be damned if I shut the window

I've started what might be a large series of art projects

Which is to say, I've made 3 idea sketches to work out details and probably need to make somewhere between 10 & 300 more before I can actually begin the preliminary piece

But it's going to be pretty great

That, or just the worst. But I won't know until it's done!

I can't even... the cat made a little blanket fort and only her ears stick out!

The cats ran out of food in their dish in the night, and this morning I found a block of butter, knocked off the counter, with the wrapper partially torn off, fuzzy with cat hair.

One of my cats (and I know which one) decided it was worth trying to supplement her diet by licking a block of dairy product.

Whenever baking instructions say "place in the middle of the oven", I take a second to acknowledge this deep mystery of the universe: has anyone ever found the middle of the oven? Every oven I've ever owned has holding racks only slightly above and below.

It's finally (just barely) melting out there! There's still a foot of snow in my backyard, but I have my kitchen window open anyway.
