it's not a judgment at this point--language is hard and monolingual places like the US aren't very constructively focused on linguistic variation. it's more just--it has been fascinating as an experiment

it's hilarious how many people call Dzan "Dan"

-I give people an out with his nickname "D"
-No one seems to lean on the hard "Z" sound, which is what I'd expect as it's this random assumed-fricative after the "d"

Having an OC with a (teenaged)conlang-turned-Mayan first name has become a great illustration of pronunciation bias in anglophone countries

this latest twitter adjustment is not my fave. They pay designers so much money and this is the result, hrf

If you commissioned me for a portrait the other month, please check your email and approve the sketch that i sent so I can go ahead with it 🙏 (i think this particular commissioner was from masto)

I am not posting my mastodon info anywhere, lol. There is way way too much whining here

Work 

My whole life has had many moments where I feel like I don't belong.

This guy's got a bunch of blooms left. I love how different these two are?? Genetic flub maybe re: the one with fewer petal layers? Dahlias have been bred into oblivion so, maybe.

Reading up on goldfish and I am going to need a different home for them. 10 gal will be fine for a week or two tops, but I'm gonna probably turn one of my heavy duty plastic bins into a tank for a while instead. It's that, or I return them.

Pretty impressed with these. Haven't had a chance to do a test swatch of the caran d'ache but I'm excited to utilize them all.

Seattleites: "it's so hot!!" (75 degrees, 38% humidity)

I'll probably get the metal caps for the blackwings eventually. But these are cute.
