Skeleton boobs Show more
me: you remember that pic of the 2 skeletons where one of them has bone boobs?
@theoutrider : no...
me: there's no way googling "skeleton boobs" will go wrong, is there?
Good news - it didn't, for once. And we all lived happily ever after, enjoying the most hetero of skeleton themed stock imagery.
Baby STEM, all caps Show more
I got a baby laptop for babby for christmas, 'cos she likes bapping at the keys on @theoutrider's mac... And all the pictures on the box had a boy using it, despite it not being a gendered toy (other than it not being pink, I guess). So I'm like "I'M SORRY, I DIDN'T REALISE YOU NEED TO BE A BOY TO PRESS A BUTTON THAT GOES MEOW MEOW MEOW OMFG"

I made onigiri with some left over rice. There's too many though! (also, I'm snacking while sitting on the floor 'cos I'm painting here. So sorry for the photo lol)
I forgot to have some mayo with them, oops. I put nori tamago in them though
me: waffles about Metal Gear lore
@bentosmile: "I just realised their pairing would be Snocelot"
"Ostrich" is etymologically from a two-word Latin phrase, "avis struthio". "Avis struthio" means "ostrich bird".
"struthio" (which means "ostrich") comes from "struthiocamelus", which is from Greek στρουθιοκάμηλος, both of which mean "ostrich". But στρουθιοκάμηλος is built from two other words: στρουθόs, "sparrow" + κάμηλος "camel".
So etymologically, an ostrich is a "sparrow camel bird".

Song memetic hazard Show more
gdi I can't get that "it's my party and I'll cry if I want to" song out of my head. Worse 'cos I only know the chorus argh!
Oh yeah, I saw someone on here say that they just started getting into watercolour pencils... And it reminded me of a little technique I started using.
So, I mostly lay down some colour like normal with pencils, but without the need to be super careful/neat. Then I use a water based blender marker (the tombow brush ones) to wet the colour just enough to blend it. Means you can be super precise, and don't get soggy paper. Keep a scrap piece to clean the marker between shades.

Ready Player One film Show more
Also I didn't think it was possible, but the film is already more racist than the book, and it's just the start.

Oh shit I can't believe they left the term "gunter" in there. Heh. (if you don't know what 'gunt' means... Sorry, it's a really gross word so I'm not telling. You're better off not knowing)
Anyway, videogames tangent. I'm surprised the next splatfest is so soon! I would have thought that Nintendo would schedule it for after Christmas, so people who get one as a present could get in on the happy splatfest fun. (I really like splatfest. It's so pure and joyful. It reminds me why I want to make games)
