Today I was out walking
when I had a brief flash
and saw the people I was passing
as collections of cells gathered together into muscles
pulling against the bones that they grew for some cells to live inside
slithering against each other like a bucket of live eels

And it was kind of beautiful.

Is it time again? Sorta seems to be. I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.

Hi, I'm Peggy, and I run dragon.style. If "maintaining a Patreon to pay the hosting, putting off updating it for a year, and occasionally opening the place up for new users" qualifies as "running" it.

I am a trans lady who spends most of her time drawing complicated sci-fi comics and sort of earning a living doing that via Patreon.

Adobe Illustrator has been my main medium since 2000, it's a pretty unusual choice but it works for me.

I used to do burlesque, then pole dance, as a hobby and a way to stay fit. I miss it and should find something similar again.

You may know me from elsewhere as Egypt Urnash.

Normal people: Hey friend, this small thing made me think of you so I got it for you.

Furry artists: Hey friend, I drew our characters having raunchy cartoon sex.

Awrite, let’s see how this new setup works for streaming. picarto.tv/egypturnash/ if you wanna watch, ping me in email with the subject PORN ME PEGGY if you want something and can’t show up in the stream!

I opened up one of the boxes of doubloons and scattered them around the desk. It’s starting to look like a dragon works here now!

There are at least four more boxes of doubloons...

I dreamed I was climbing a very long stairway up a mountain to the lamp I lived in, with a Tupperware box full of kindling that didn’t close very well. I believe I may be getting @Phorm’s dreams by accident.

Late night thought: my new desk is a huge sprawling expanse that I have no idea what to do with.

What if I just covered it with alllll of the doubloons I had on the floor of my living room and bedroom back in Seattle?

Things I found in boxes while looking for one of these things. Which one was I looking for? You decide.

so I am doing some pro bono work for my neighbor's kid's skateboard group and I sure am having a lot of fun exploring the Aggro Teen aesthetics implied by the concept sketch he handed me and the semantic loadings of the name "Skatanic Boy$"

It is 1am and I cannot sleep and I am calling people idiots on Reddit with various degrees of politeness and I should really try to get to sleep again.

Oh what the hell.

Sadly my #1 desired tweak - arbitrary positioning of icons - does not exist for iOS 13 yet. Hopefully soon.

Also I can't mutter about this too hard because yesterday I *did* send up a prayer to Hermes asking him to keep my cash flowing through the system before remembering he is also the god of thieves, so I'm just gonna consider the lost $30, ID, and nice wallet as an offering to him or something. :)

And meanwhile I went out to deal with taking out the trash and my neighbor was sitting outside in her car with the lights off using the car's sound system to call the *police*. I hope she and her family are doing okay, I know there has been some strife between her and her SO...

This sure is a day.

a fun day of thieving

Well. That was fun.

 

I was sitting in the park relaxing with a book. A couple of kids came up from behind me on their bikes; one distracted me by asking if I'd seen a lost... iPhone... anywhere around... a... black.. one (guess what was sitting next to me, guess what color my dress was) while his buddy lifted my purse out of my bike basket. And then they took off. A mome...

I just spent about an hour repositioning shelves in the shelf unit I’d been using as a desk, as well as picking up books that had been kicking around the living room, and emptying out two boxes full of books. I still have boxes full of books but I think they are all big heavy art books, and I don’t feel like moving those. Or like finding new places for the sex toys that are currently on the lower shelves. I also guess the Lizard of Wisdom and the Breakup Bees are now guardians of the Majgicqk Shelf.

I think my art books will just about fill the rest of this once I move all the other stuff off of it. I could probably use a little more shelf space in the living room and studio. And so could my SO. But this is a big step forwards!

Magical pondering: PayPal's widget for paying for stuff on an external website is named "Hermes" - you can see that in the URLs that flash by.

As this process happens, why not offer up a prayer to him in his role as a god of commerce, and ask him to keep money flowing through your hands? Something like "Hail Hermes, o lightning-fast messenger of the gods, o spirit of the flow of gold and riches through the economy. Bless my cashflow and keep it healthy." Needs a little work, but hey. Make it your own.

the current us situation, tangentially (~) 

Flashbacks to the two word processors I had on my c64: Paperclip, which had a super-squinty 80-column preview mode on a 40-column machine, and SpeedScript, originally distributed as a type-in program in Compute!'s Gazette.

I am an old.

Oh hey it occurs to me that I have not had breakfast yet and everything is always harder before breakfast.

There is a protest today in NOLA - two actually, one started around noon but I wasn’t even awake by then - and all I have the energy to do today is pick up the residue of building my desk and crawl back into bed. I donated some money to the Minneapolis bail fund yesterday, that will have to do.
