Bunch of toots incoming with previews of digital art I have for sale (or scans of hand-drawn that I'm selling as digital files).

Veggie soup recipe 

If you want variations you can add milk or cream for a creamier, rich soup, or coconut milk, or chilli flakes :D

Veggie soup recipe 

Making a big pot of leek and potato soup today. It's one of my faves.

Chop 2-3 big leeks and an onion, sautee in butter and olive oil with 1tsp each dried cumin and coriander on a medium heat for 10-ish minutes until soft.

Dice 3-4 medium potatoes into small cubes, add to the pot with the leeks, stir and cook for 5 mins.

Add in liquid and veg stock, enough to just cover the veg, season to taste, simmer for 15-20 mins until the potatoes are cooked


Rest of my screenies from ME1 (legendary). Apparently #2 is much prettier so I expect to be taking many more shots of that one, which I'll be starting today!

ME's photomode saves screenshots as bmps, which is unusual, and I've discovered that gthumb really doesn't like opening them at full fidelity, so I'm using Geeqie which seems good ^.^

Just stumbled upon this series if anyone's interested.

"Moderated by philosopher and activist Phil Cafaro, each episode includes a highlight of the week’s environmental news, along with special guests on every show discussing viewpoints from a variety of different perspectives. "

They're all available on Vimeo for free, it looks like.

Food poll asking for preferences of accompaniment with a specific item 

What do you like best with a cold cheese sandwich?

If something else, let me know!

Up early for the gardener today because he comes at the crack of dawn, fark I'm tired zzzzzzzzz

Finished ME1 in Legendary Edition. Did a pretty complete run and it took about 26 hours.

This is my new desktop background :D

#Fedivision announcement!

The Fedivision Song Contest (#FSC) will accept entries until Friday, 28th midnight CEST, so we have enough time to find collaborators if needed (#FedivisionCollab), come up with beautiful songs for the fictional country or faction you would like to represent.
Also, we won't run into scheduling troubles with this other music contest named #ESC.
Spread the word, have fun! I'm looking forward to the weekend of the 29th/30th when voting will take place!

Couch to 5k 

#2 of week 2 done. Set my jog speed lower than last time and cardio-wise it was much more manageable, but my feet kept cramping -.-

I just had a terrible idea. Would anyone in the fediverse be interested in a fedivision song contest?
And participating?
I... I think I would like that!

Recorded audio of the water thick-knee that woke me up last night XD

This is what they are :) They're very funny birds with their long legs and big big eyes. When they run, they first start tilting their bodies forward slowly then break into a roadrunner-type sprint.

The difference between the UK and South Africa is that the strange bird standing in the middle of the street yelling at 3am is literal in SA and figurative in the UK XD
