...I don't know if I have words for how jealous I am right now. I get pretty geeked out about driving into Wisconsin, so... yeah. I hope you enjoy your visit and get some tasty cheese!

That's gorgeous. Where were you traveling to?

Love all these! I keep thinking about that article about making a ring and thinking about trying it myself but I don't think my soldering skills are there. But maybe I should do the thing anyway, there's only one way to get my soldering skills to that level, right?

Using round wire is a great idea, makes the inside like a comfort fit band.

Sorry for your loss.


An episode of Every Little Thing about how this happened in Dallas one night in 1971. This is an Activation



demure's life


Radiolab really has gone downhill.

I still listen to Stuff you Missed in History Class. I don't know that it will ever leave my feed.

    And if I hear one more person ramble on for 10 minutes about their personal life, and then say, "So, let's drop right in then, shall we?" I'm gonna shove so many earbuds up their ass they'll pop.
HA! I know this feeling, but I don't think I own enough earbuds.

The community organizer thing should be somewhere in your skill/perk tree, IIRC - it's been a minute since I have messed with FO4, I am currently enjoying a playthrough of New Vegas. I recall there being some sort of prerequisite to get it, but I can't remember what exactly it was - a certain score in a SPECIAL Attribute or another skill or perk or something? Possibly a certain level of barter skill?

I like the idea of settlement building but found the implementation a bit lacking. I have heard that you can now build vaults and I did get the season pass so I can get that but just haven't bothered to load the game up in awhile.

Stuff that's been in my feed lately:

Part-time Genius - my favorite part is the PTG fact-off. Also the time when they had Mango say his own name because a bunch of people wrote in saying they didn't think Will was pronouncing it right.

Note to Self - billed as "the tech show about being human" and asks what I think are a lot of good questions.

Spacepod - I love that she starts almost every episode off with herself and her interviewee trying an interesting drink, some of them I have heard of (cheerwine, Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray celery soda, Sioux City Sarsaparilla) and some are just totally bizarre (Mama Chia Chia Squeeze, Moongaritas [margaritas with gouda in them], Peanut Butter and Jelly soda) so it's always fun to see what kind of mess they are drinking and their reactions to them. And then, of course, the rest of the episode is space science stuff so also right up my alley.

Every Little Thing - Flora Lichtman thinks that everyone's favorite animal should be the flamingo, because they are kinda badass. This podcast made itself a nice little home in the space vacated by another Gimlet series that came and went too soon: Mystery Show

    Work is stressful. I barely have enough employees to cover our needs, So I'm picking up a lot of the extra hours. I have a LOT of different projects I'm working on and a lot of the small day to day stuff has gotten hard to handle.

This is my office even at full staff so I feel you. I have to write down everything I need to do or it won't happen and every time I look at my to do list it feels a little like I have fallen into a pit that keeps getting deeper no matter how hard I climb. Keep pushing and hopefully we will make it through!

Best of luck to your boy in his new adventure, and hugs to you and your honey.

You didn't happen to get the pattern for that cowl from tin can knits, did you? I am working on the hat from the same pattern family if so.

    Or in the US, where it's like 30f/-1c degrees in New Orleans, people are all like "If global warming is real, why's it so cold?"

Because we are fucking up the entire pattern of weather? The cold air doesn't wanna be in the Arctic anymore so now we get to be its friend I guess. It really doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this shit out.

Started and did not finish several non-fiction books over the last few months; did not meet my 2017 goal of 26 books.

Starting this year off with something light to get back into the swing of things, so I am reading It Devours! (A Welcome to Night Vale novel) before I work my way back into my real reading list. Set my goal for this year at 20 books, hopefully I can get at least close.
