Just had a kind of mind blowing realization:

After being left off some email chains and not invited to a few meetings, I find out that I have to do system validation tonight sometime after 10:00.

While not the worst project I've ever had the displeasure of working on, this one certainly has its moments.

Everyone agrees - the project manager is nice. We also agree on the competency level of said project manager. At least you've got nice going for you!

I just returned from volunteering at the cat shelter. My knees are now being rigorously inspected by my own kitties. I have no idea what I knelt in, but it's apparently fascinating.

Is there any free software (and not ridonkulously difficult to learn) that I could use to make a model of my hallway and some shelving?

@noelle When you get a chance, can you add something to your wonderful Mastodon guide about how CW and hashtags work? I can never remember if I'm supposed to put the tag in the CW or in the body. Thank you!

A little belated, but happy new year!

2018 turned out to be pretty freaking awesome for me and I have high hopes for 2019 to be even better.

I'm not really good at resolutions or anything, but this year I want to:

- Finish the catification project in the hall and living room
- Start a garden!
- Pay off some debt
- Craft more
- Read more
- Lurk less here

If any of this looks like something you also want to do, hit me up to be an accountability buddy!

I haven't been sufficiently valuable to capitalism this month, so once again, I have to ask for your help.

I need about $800 to pay January's bills. If you can help, please do:

Or there's still time to join my Patreon for this month:

Thank you for your help and for your boosts and support. :blobheart:

It’s not Christmas until the smoke alarm goes off.
