These crept in somewhere; I first noticed it over a year ago, but forgot to
submit a PR. Obviously there's no reason to state them twice.

I went back to work today, which means our vacation's really really over for real. Sigh! I'm glad to be home, but I'm not so keen on the slippery white stuff that keeps falling from the sky. This was a lot more pleasant:

small sailboats dragged up on the sands of a cove

More photos of our Auckland adventure can be found here. I used the Bonjournal app to keep my family up-to-date & it worked out really well. Nice, simple interface.

It really didn't take me too long to get through my work inbox, both the physical and electronic versions, which was better than I'd expected. Apparently, I missed a series of three or four retaliatory gang shootings while I was gone, which I'd say was a relief, except, well, that's a peculiar thing to be relieved about. But I'm trying to finish a major validation project, so I'm glad one of my coworkers is handling those homicides.

I mainlined the entirety of season 10 of Master Chef (the UK version) on the plane on the way back, so I am looking forward to a free weekend when I can try cooking some new things. Like fresh pasta. Especially ravioli. Maybe a thai dish, too. Not that I ever want to cook professionally, but I can't watch one of those competitions without wanting to at least branch out a little.

Off to bed now. Got to get back on a good work night schedule.

kaberett: photograph of the Moon taken from the northern hemisphere by GH Revera (moon)
[personal profile] kaberett
so I was talking to the boything the other day about how I am very definite that I want who only by moving can balance/only by balancing move as soon as I work out who to commission to do the lettering for me, and I'm very certain I want it on my bicep, and he was being a bit baffled about this until I explained that the reason to have it on my arm is wheelchair user. (And also erstwhile pianist/harpsichordist, but hey.)

Which got him to talking about wheels as symbology. And, whoops, now I apparently want the outline of a circle (medium-thick, dark ink; cannot decide just yet whether black or v dark blue) about the size of a 2p piece, on my spine just below the nape of my neck/shoulders. Because: wheels and movement and the Moon and choices and decision-making and going in circles (every five years or so/I look back on my life/and I have a good laugh) and a reminder to not try carrying the world on my shoulders.

This is sufficiently straightforward that I might in fact get it for my birthday (in that I don't have to worry about lettering etc). Because it is a thing that Feels Right, and is absolutely a thing about which I'll keep inventing more symbology as I go along.

I have two questions for which I desire input from the collective wisdom of Dreamwidth. Can you help?

1. When I uploaded all my fanfic back catalog to AO3, lo these many years ago, I only included stuff that was at least a thousand words and a "real" story. Since then I have generated more short bits (some of them on Tumblr, and therefore even more impossible to find.) At this point I would like to get them all compiled together on AO3 with my other stuff. What is your favorite method (As a reader and/or writer) for putting a ton of tiny bits of fic on AO3?

The options I have seen are:
1. Post them the same way as any other fic
2. Post them as individual fics, but in a ficlet collection
3. Post them as chapters in one work, which you then tag with everything
4. Post them as chapters of various works separated by fandom/pairing (i.e., an "HP drabble challenges" work, a "les mis injokes" work, a "misc. poetry filk" work, etc.)
5. Post them as chapters of one work but don't tag everything (so they would be on AO3 to link to, but nobody could find them via tags)

These all have things I really don't like but I don't know of any method I actually do like. (My kingdom for a "scrapbooks" option on AO3!) What do y'all think of them? Any other ideas?


2. So when I resolved to read one complete recent fiction magazine or equivalent a month, I thought my library got some and I could just read them through it, but it turns out they stopped getting them early last year.

Does anyone have recs for currently publishing, pro-paid, online original fiction magazines/equivalent (any genre, really), preferably ones that would not require giving anyone my credit card number in order to read the most recent issue?

(I know, paying people for their work is important, but I really want to know how badly it's going to suck before I commit. And given my last few attempts at reading pro-published fiction short stories... >_< The most recent issue of Analog my library carries had two stories about how heroic and tragic it was to be an elderly white dude with no friends. And I don't mean the elderly white dude did anything special, getting old while a lonely white dude was apparently sufficiently heroic to require two stories lauding and rewarding them for for being so brave as to be elderly and so annoying their family won't talk to them anymore. I guess that's what Analog's demographic needs, idek.)

I found running a struggle today, both getting out to the gym, and actually completing the run. I managed two lots of 12½ minutes at 8 kph, but I didn't manage to run slowly during the recovery interval, I was finding things hard enough going that I let myself walk instead. That gave me a total distance of 3.8 km in 30 minutes, which is sort of a PR except that I've done a couple of 5Ks faster than that. Anyway, progress I think.

1. I do actively like getting up with dawn and being in work by 8am. If I could find a way to do that sustainably (given insomnia, fatigue, etc) then I'd be all over it. (Two days running this week; aiming to replicate tomorrow. Though, to be fair, I did come home very early this afternoon and then sleep. But -- I got labwork done before 9am, I taught for three hours, and I booked mass spec time. And I'm doing some more faff at home. Writing abstracts is haaard. I mean, actually I think formal writing is hard, but perhaps I will work out how to get past this, sigh.)

2. Facesfriend is great, though - I stayed over at theirs last night, and sometime in the wee hours they very gently woke me up enough for me to disentangle myself from the nightmare I was having (whimpery rather than screamy, thank goodness; once a year or so I wake myself up screaming, and I'm always very embarrassed about the disruption to other people) and then they coaxed me back to sleep and... gosh, that was nice.

3. Guiltknitting progresses apace. It was supposed to be done 18 months ago. I was stalled on it for all sorts of reasons, largely boiling down to "autism" (it became apparent I hadn't bought enough of the main colour; no more of that dye lot was to be had; I couldn't work out what on earth to do about this; and then for the primary gifting period largest smallcousin bought me some very tasteful yarn, some medium-tasteful yarn, and some yarn that um looks kind of like a sunset got overly excited and has a terrible hangover; the sunset yarn goes very well with the purple). I am unblocked and nearly halfway through the section I charted up. Weaving in the ends is going to be a pain and a half - why I thought learning to do intarsia with two strands no less in the context of double-knitting I have no idea but hey, it's working and legible, so.

4. I have acquired the rest of the Toby Daye books in paperback from eBay, to my immense frustration, because apparently it's impossible to buy the ebooks from anyone but Amazon in the UK, and my preferred UK booksellers aren't carrying the volumes I want, so... eBay. And in attempting to locate the short stories I have spoiled myself for something that was starting to really irritate me, so I can now read on secure in the knowledge that the characters are going to stop being so infuriatingly oblivious sometime soon (well, two books' time, but). (I am also feeling kind of guilty for spending money on books by white folk - [personal profile] calissa posted recently about diversity and reading; one of the ways I try to (1) ~broaden my horizons~ and (2) restrict my spending on books, in addition to "don't buy anything while the to-read pile on the ereader is greater than $number" [currently 25, previously 50], is to by-and-large avoid buying books by whitey? On the grounds that I get loaned lots of them and I can satisfy most of my desire-to-read-white-people via loans, so. AND ON THE OTHER HAND I am working super hard this month in lab terms, I'm helping teach a maths course which is a massive deal, I am a bit ill, paper books are good for reading in lab because not metal, and for all I'm finding them gently frustrating they are excellent brain-candy.)

5. I really do need to set up that review blog. Which in turn means that I need to get my act together to choose a CMS for my personal website, siiigh.

So I sort of ... tripped and accidentally signed up for a local CSA?

(because I hate fruits and vegetables, and so does my roommate)

(that would be sarcasm)

First box arrived today. One bunch of Nantes carrots, one bunch of rainbow carrots, one bunch of kale, two bunches of cilantro, one bunch beets, one bunch celery, a couple red potatoes, four kiwis, three fuji apples, two blood oranges, and a partridge in a pear tree

It is very happymaking and so very pretty and vibrant.

(And you can not only set certain products on an exclusion list, but can customize what's in your box in the few days before it goes out. So if you just bought a bunch of celery and don't want more, but it's included in the 'default' box, you can swap in something else instead.)

They sent us home at 1:30 yesterday, and gave us a snow day today, for which I am glad. I don't want to be out commuting in this, even though it wasn't nearly as bad here as it could have been.

So I did brave the grocery story on my way home and it was ridiculous, but I got bacon, but they were out of arugula, so I got cole slaw and had a bacon + cole slaw sandwich and I would definitely recommend it. I'm going to have another one for lunch soon. BACON! A girl's best friend on a snow day!

Also, cinnamon buns, which I made this morning (pics). I had no powdered sugar to make the icing, though, so I tried to make a simple syrup glaze? But it didn't go as well as I'd hoped. Sigh. The buns are tasty though. Totally worth it, and not that hard to make.

 Is there something you've been procrastinating on? Something that really needs must be done, but is kind of a pain in the tuckus? Today's challenge is to do That Thing.

Go team, go! We can do it together!

NOTE: Optional 5 minute challenge for those who just do not have the brains for this challenge, because it is just too much ***or maybe you are buried under snow where you are or intense Southern Hemisphere heat and so are surrendering to the weather gods***. (Which is totally okay.) Clean a mirror or window and get a brighter look on the day. It's a small thing and doesn't take much time, but it does make things look a lot more cheery. Plus every time you pass that thing you cleaned you can be all, "Heck yeah I cleaned that thing today, go me being all anti-procrastination."

Alternate cleaning challenge/reminder: As it is cold/flu season in a lot of places, this might be a good time to consider sanitizing the often unconsidered light switches and doorknobs. You do NOT have to clean every light switch and doorknob where you live in one go. Just maybe have some sort of sanitizer around and do a couple a day on days you have spoons.
