(I also read recently about chine-collé and now need to get some colored tissue paper so I can experiment. I do miss when I block-printed more.)

Things I did on Thanksgiving:
· Wrote a small Rust implementation of an existing data format
· Used that data format as part of specifying a board game I'm writing
· Spent the day lazily with my partner, who made amazingly delicious bo ssam
· Made three new cocktails, and a few old ones
It was a very good day.

…'cause that'd be a good project idea.

I have a current personal project where I've given myself free reign to bikeshed and reinvent wheels as much as I want. Maybe paradoxically, this has meant I make very good progress on the overall project. Turns out, building a good, solid wheel is an engaging and rewarding task that makes me excited to work more on the project.

Recently I've been writing a novel—not a good novel, but a novel nonetheless—and over the weekend I hit the 40k word mark, which makes it feel more like a Real Actual Thing I Am Making instead of just an oversized Markdown file. It's a very satisfying feeling.
