So I never did an but I probably should, so...

I'm Alis! I'm an and I love and so I write books about monsters. I also sometimes (very rarely) draw, and (mostly) play way too many .

I'm also the admin of, a small centric Masto instance, inspired by the exodus and aimed at , , , and other general fannish content. (Also cat photos.)

So... hi!

… did I go out and buy a set of glass teacups to go with my glass teapot, purely because the local tea shop started selling peaflower tea?

Uh. Duh.

Today's startup idea: a carbon sequestration factory that sucks CO2 out of the atmosphere and turns it into diamonds.

Brilliant. Can't possibly fail. Investors give me money now.

... aaah yes the first semi-actual period I've had in like twenty years. That's definitely not helping me not feel like garbage. Thanks, body.

Constantly trying to log into work with my MFA token is a hell of a Mood™️.

Relatedly, Americans if you ever feel like sending characters to a Starbucks in any country that isn't America: D O N ' T. It is almost certainly 100% of the time the wrong choice, unless the plot is somehow specifically "lol let's go to Starbucks."

tfw you read a fic set in a "bar" that's very obviously actually a nightclub and you check the author's profile and it's like, "oh... you are a baby who can't legally drink yet, bless."

So I hit 80 on :ffxiv_dnc: DNC about halfway through the ShB storyline, and not wanting to "waste" the leveling XP, it's time to put that on hold while I catch up my old main, :ffxiv_smn: SMN.

Been doing it by leveling :ffxiv_sch: SCH and... it took me a while to get into the groove of it, but I think I kinda like it?

Also I get to dress like a frumpy librarian, so...

... so I swear my new laptop keeps closing its own lid?

In other news I have discovered how to make gradient text with CSS and nothing can stop me now!!!

(For the record I will still get Old Laptop's battery--and apparently keyboard, since they're like... Appleglued together apparently--replaced and he will find a good new home with a loving new owner. He's a 2018 model but he still runs right good like.)

In other news my laptop's battery is giving me "please please please take me in for a service" errors. So I did, and they're like "yeah it won't cost anything to replace it but you also won't have the device for five days."

I relay this to my boss-slash-husband and he's like, "lol no just buy a new one."

So-oo-oo... final-generation Intel-based MBP, welcome home buddy.

So in other news I finally got to Rak'tika Greatwood (only a little under halfway left until 80!), and... LA HEE really is A Mood, isn't it?


Also wow apparently WIRED serves up legit HTTP code 402 ("Payment Required") errors for its paywalled articles...

My hobby is shaming Boomers who try an put the TVs on at the gym.

(Go get headphone for your smartphone like the rest of us, and stop subjecting everyone to your racist scaremongering morning TV shit.)
