I’m thinking that in the meantime, I’m going to buy a collapsible hand truck, probably this one

My friend works Mon-Fri too (I have Mondays off, and work alternate Saturdays), and yes the thought of having to go on a weekend, and one in the run up to Christmas;

It’s family dinner/Korean movie night! I’m making Samin Nosrat’s conveyor belt chicken with a warm kale and sweet potato salad, fresh baked bread, and I’m considering making some chocolate covered candied orange peels. FiL can pick out the movie from our million streaming services, but chances are we’ll all just end Read more

I’m the same way with avocados so now I have a rule for myself that I can only buy an avocado one day in advance. Even then, I sometimes forget that I bought them!

I just made a couple of big-ass pieces of avocado toast on ciabatta and am deeply proud of myself for using the avocado before it went bad. I’m really quite terrible at avocado management - I buy them hard then by the time I remember them they’re usually a squishy mess. Read more

I finally designed the pretty spreadsheet with the automation in it. Didn’t quite get it down to a handful of clicks, but I don’t have to manually enter every cell and then count rows by hand to enter on a separate report. It uses queries and Tables and nested IF functions, woo!

There was an “exposé” (that world always feels so tabloid but you know what I mean) in Wired a couple years ago about people working in the gaming industry. I only remember EA being named specifically, but yeah, companies wiping their asses with employees was par for the course. And that was, y'know, men. It was a Read more

Nice! I was just saying to rusty-shackleford that oils and watercolours are very, very different. Having learned oils as a teenager, I find myself trying to push the watercolour tube pigment around like it’s oil paint. And that ain’t how it works. Read more

I’ve been working on a project at work that’s been a whole lotta “hahaha NOPE” from the fancy important people who own the budget... and about 3 months ago they decided my project could benefit them and now we’re almost to a proof-of-concept demo!

Thanksgiving proper is actually my grad school graduation! I did it! Except it brings up its own host of issues - I feel incredibly anxious seeing my professors again. And my parents are in town, which, yay, except my partners parents are also in town, so it’s going to be the first time they meet. Which is also very Read more
