Today I poked my nose into the Patreon Discord and saw a guy asking for advice on how to grow his paying audience for his YouTube channel wherein he putters about with a metal detector.
Apparently he is not the only person to do this. Apparently the people making the most money doing this are buxom ladies.
At long last. I feel Future Shock.
This leggy poker was hanging out in the lingering rain puddles on Jeff Davis Parkway about two blocks away from my place in Mid-City. I’ve startled these guys on the Parkway at night in the past, this is the first time I was able to come back for a photo instead of just seeing a flurry of grey wings retreating to a tree.
sex toys, furry porn, desk photograph
I really need to get around to finding a desk down here. I miss the one I had in Seattle.
I need to get a chest of drawers so I can keep all these sex toys in the bedroom instead of here, too. I'm not sure why they ended up on this shelf unit instead of books, it just sort of happened while I was unpacking and I haven't bothered to change this without a place to put them.
So I took out my computer and sat there for about a half hour drawing until they got close to my number. No reconnection fee, just a $100 deposit I paid in cash, and they tell me our water should be on by 5 today. I would call that a critical success on the Bureaucratic Encounter Table. Apparently the modifiers are favorable on weekdays, most people end up there on the weekend because Day Job.
Today’s adventure: whoops looks like we never actually set up an account with the Sewerage and Water Board and they finally turned off the water today after like... three months of using it without pay? I’m just glad they didn’t do this last month, coming home from our Barry hurrication to no water would have SUCKED.
the ship of theseus experiment except it's replacing the parts with slightly different pieces to ultimately transform the ship into a trojan horse
when does it cease to be a ship? when does it begin to be a horse? how long will it take you to notice my army of minions flooding out of the structure and taking over your city?
Today I heard caterwauling outside. So I poked my nose out and saw Sugarfoot hanging out on the edge of the porch. I decided to put out some food and who should show up but Shadow, Sugarfoot’s mom, who promptly monopolized the food bowl. And tried to go for more when I refilled it but got the message when I gently held her back and pulled the bowl away for Sugarfoot.
Then they both explored the apartment a little bit.
This morning I dreamt that I was standing on a neutral ground painting a picture of Mid-City. Then I thought it would be really cool to paint a huge Gothic vault over the low houses and stores and write HIC SVNT DRACONES on it in Roman capitals.
Also there was a car sitting behind me while I did this with a distinct air of *lurking*.
Mild woo mention, oblique and possible sigil
Over the past 4-5 days, roughly 10,000 people were exposed to this button.
I know it isn't an explicit sigil, but I like to think that there's still something magicqual about that fact. And it makes me smile.

Any page where I get to do a smear drawing is a good page.

Well that was weird. My shift/cmd keys were not registering as staying down when I held them down, which makes working in Illustrator kind of a royal pain in the ass. It happened briefly last night with my external keyboard, and was happening again on the laptop keyboard here at the cafe.
A reboot fixed it. I hope this is not a regular thing.
Computers are such complicated chaotic systems.
