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!

So our (professional) DM has recently discovered Foundry VTT and every time something in Roll20 is even mildly annoying we get a whole "well in Foundry I could just" and it's kinda adorable how excited he is about it.

OH NO! CARMEN SANDIEGO HAS STOLEN YOUR idea for a new cryptocurrency!

You can also go and bulk-buy ONE HUNDRED Robin Hood hats from their store for the absolute steal of £225.

Y'know. If that's your kind of thing.

So because of Topical Recent Events I, like many other people, have discovered the website for the World Wide Robin Hood Society and it is a *wild* ride from start to finish.

Definitely check out their "Robin Hood Reality Check" and keep reading until the very end:

Back in the oven/stove for a bit.

Automattic giving Tumblr the worst features of WordPress (read: Guttenberg) rather than giving WordPress the best features of Tumblr (read: the queue, proper post format support) is both disappointing and entirely on-brand for Tumblr, honestly.

(It's MYSTERY MEN, incidentally. The characters from the film are even *in the videoclip* ffs.)

Getting into an argument with a twenty-something about which film "All Star" comes from is like... Peak Old vs. Young Millennial.

Always totally wild when I get like an invoice from Ingram or Amazon that reminds me people sometimes actually buy my books…

(Ironically they very very definitely sell more now then when they were tradpubbed, though I still wouldn’t say the sales volume is anything to get excited about.)

Also til apparently the power tools market is, like, this giant mess of vendor lock-in and price gouging and vertical integration? So like the orbital sander we ended up with cost about $250, but the battery pack was going to be about that much again, and the only reason we bought the brand we did was because Mum already had a battery that fitted it from her whipper-snipper. So, like. Lock-in successful, I guess, cheers Makita.

I think probably now I don’t hate the stone as much as I used to do before I learnt this was the way to repair it. But on the other hand actual ceramic tile is SO MUCH EASIER omg and I would still never ever voluntarily put in stone, particularly not this ultra-gloss-finish travertine stuff (to be fair, the granite benchtop in the kitchen has worn fine; it’s just the travertine tiles and the marble bathroom counters that suck).
