politics #brexit 

Oh look. Some election mail arrived. I know just what to do.

I find videos like this simultaneously motivating and demotivating. On the one hand I think “I can do that.” On the other hand, I try, and it comes out nowhere near as musical. And I think “I can’t do that.” I spent a solid couple hours on tonight, so I guess she inspired more than uninspired. youtu.be/QsjGEjvDbeU

Say hello to Telephant!

I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!

Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)

Join me here:
github.com/muesli/telephant

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

:blobcatpeek: Support an independent author?

For every book I sell, I pet my cat and say 'We *did* it!'

My librarians-and-necromancy fantasy is out now.

If you want, you can read the first three chapters for free here: victoriacorva.xyz/books-bone-s

Supper for Thursday, 9 May 2019:

4 eggs. Make a pound
5 cups of light white wine
1 cup of pecans coarsely,
3 eggs a la poulette . Cut

Cloth, or white pepper; beat one egg, one yolk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Wipe it clean scummed, then bottle and seal. A couple of dozen of apples, and in the spring several hours or a mixture of the coils, which had been administered. Sifted sugar; sift through a fine yellow. Poerkoell. White spots from varnished furniture: hold a red pepper to taste.

Some days my adulter is on the fritz and I just can’t adult properly

I see lots of people arguing that microsoft's open source efforts are in good faith.

I don't believe that is possible, and I won't believe that is possible until microsoft releases critical components of their software under the (a)gpl version 3 or later.

Microsoft spent years operating under a model of Embrace Extend Extinguish, and we have no reason to believe that they have changed.

Microsoft is your enemy. The fact that they are embracing a thing you love should terrify you.

When I lost a lot of weight, I rewarded myself by buying a bunch of new clothes. Now that I've gained a bunch of weight, I punished myself by buying a bunch of new clothes.

I feel pretty confident that no “over 50s” are involved in this app or its advertisements. Why not marvel at the fact that “over 50s” haven’t kicked the bucket yet? The only people who might find this amusing are young people. Someone should get a refund.

Want to play an interesting game around ? Play “spot the person of colour” in the tube. What I mean are the ads. Whether they’re selling furniture, vitamins, holidays, or toothbrushes, if you see a person’s skin in an ad (either cartoon or photograph) it’s probably a white person. Some days it’s 90% white. Others it’s 100%.

UK politics 

Two UK parties will not get my vote: the Tories and Labour. The tories HAVE been a disaster and Labour wants to be. A party that wants to leave Europe can’t have my vote.

@ajroach42 i have said it before and I will keep saying

Give me the next next generation!!

I don’t want prequels, I don’t want movies, I only kinda want the Picard show. I want the show that’s 60-80 years after tng, 1 cameo in the first few episodes, and then all new shit. Except for the throwback eps obvs.

It amuses me to no end that 44% of my blog's traffic comes from a Girl Scout troup in State College, Pennsylvania.

21st century horror fiction:

"What if it didn't?"

And the dinosaurs looked from velociraptor to lawyer, and from lawyer to velociraptor, but they could no longer tell the difference.

I am about 90 minutes from wheels-down in America. That means I'm about 135 minutes from Taco Bell! It's one of my vices. I love .
