Food, meat, sushi, money 

It's been a long time since my spouse and I had sushi, so I went ahead and spent a chunk of money on delivery sushi from a place we like. Absolutely loved it, worth the cost for sure.

This is it, the last refining before I go in for surgery. The gem spot is the wrong shape, but this is still a nice first draft. What do you all think? I'll read your replies when I wake up from surgery.

Here, I've partially shaped the blade, rounded it off and carved the hidden edges facing the crossguards, which in the process broke the crossguards off, before I reattached them and made the second set of crossguards for the other side.

Continuing the saga of the sword, this was the rough cut outline. I made the mistake of attaching the crossguards before shaping the blade, so that became a problem later, hah!

So, She-Ra spoilers.
There's a sword from the show I like a lot. A long time ago I used to carve small wood swords for fun, and I thought, I could make a larger one out of this one!
The thing is, I started this process with a worse screenshot than the one here, so a few details won't match. However, this first version is sort of a test, I can learn a few lessons from it and the next version will be better.

I've come to a realization.
I am a covert narcissist. I believe that I ought to be a leader. I believe my thoughts could shatter mountains. But I suppose I fail to show it because I assume everyone else is just as powerful, just as potent, given the right opportunity.
I may believe I'm deific, but so is everyone else.
A modern day pantheon of druggies sobbing in dark corners, lovers entangled in their own pains, and caregivers laying down the weak or young to rest.
I gladly worship you all.

This is very important! This is what lies past free software for me. This is a signpost and a warning.

So I'm writing a weird MLP 40k fanfic, which I think has a novel take on the concept. Two chapters so far, 2k words, check it out.

Drawing, RP, space station 

A space station that I'm drawing for a RP setting which, sadly, I have no control over besides contributing some detail. But I'm proud of the drawing.

If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.

The problem with this is twofold:

- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead

- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either

There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?

started a new mini campaign. players recruited by almost-bankcrupt noble to check out an elven colony in a far away colony

A close friend gifted me a plush Celestia. I have an intense desire to 3D print her a new set of regalia, but that requires me to learn how to use Blender.

Fiction, mental health 

I tend to be most creatively active when laying in my bed in the dark. I also tend to get more depressed at night. I know for sure that these two things aren't connected, but they lead to a deep self criticism of my creative works, and deep insecurity. My already poor record of getting feedback becomes a black hole that pulls in all my fantasies, crushing them.

Food, sushi, fried animal heads 

A very rare but wonderful occurrence, got to go to North Beach Sushi in San Francisco. By far the highest quality and most enjoyable sushi I've ever had, we only come here every great once in a while. But it's worth it.

Food, fried food, Chinese food, burnt food, peanuts 

So I got to participate in a family tradition for the new half of my family! Tim Gok Zai are sweet coconut and peanut fried treats. I burned a handful of them! But sweet charred pastry is still sweet!

Religion, joking about religion, 3D printing, damaged desk surfaces, Celestia the almighty 

Tell me, my loyal subjects, are you in need of a good or evil goddess today?

Snow coming down. It's beautiful, I haven't lost that awe for it. But it takes work to live here.
