Slowly, slowly reading my way through M.C.A. Hogarth's _Business for the Right-Brained_, and figuring out plans for my art and writing career.

I was looking through this one artist's blog at iguanodont.tumblr.com and the blog subtitle is "Everything you know and love is actually a dragon," and I really like that.

(See also: some of my favorite questions of "what is a dragon, anyway?" and "is x a dragon?" and "ooh, can I be a dragon??")

I just got my flu shot for the upcoming season! How about you?

@green I found these two dinosaur blogs for you: palaeofail-explained.tumblr.co and palaeowin.tumblr.com for examples of dinosaur reconstruction done badly and done well, respectively.

I'm finally all caught up on Steven Universe, up to "Legs From Here To Homeworld!" Share your spoileriffic fans theories and observations! (But under a cw to protect others, of course.)

Isn't a mouse pad essentially a yoga mat small enough for a mouse to exercise on?

Are there any resources yet for automatically downloading all of your own toots on to, like, an html file or something, as a back-up archive?

I don't understand why ancient technologies have gotten so lost when newer technologies developed, given that the older ones were more affordable to DIY. Why didn't poor fishers keep knapping stone knives, when it was cheaper than buying bronze ones from the smith? Why didn't poor farmers keep using longbows to protect their flocks, when it would save them money on gun-cotton? Do any historians here have insight into this?

In case you weren't aware (I wasn't!) the Queer Experience 2018 survey is in full swing. qesurvey.tumblr.com

Here’s a survey about the social network #Mastodon. You are invited to take part regardless of your level of involvement or how often you use it or how long you've been here.

I don’t work for them, I’m just curious.

What's your handle on ? I'm frameacloud there. I'm going to push myself to do more personal and long-form journaling on there again, because its posting access features are so good. Sometimes it's hard to match people to their handles, because Dreamwidth profiles in particular tend to be really vague about who people are. frameacloud.dreamwidth.org

Trimmed my Masto follow list way down, to keep my home timeline from being overwhelming.

My all-time favorite piece of fantasy or sci-fi worldbuilding is the waterfall that flows uphill in _The Patchwork Girl of Oz._ It just says, who cares if it's plausible? It's a story! You can do whatever you want! You can say there's a waterfall that flows uphill, and there it is! Stories don't *have* to abide by any sense of physics or normality or plausibility or reason if you don't want them to! Make up stuff that's wilder than your goofiest dreams! Have fun!
