I'm doing some basic experimenting with SpryTile, which is a lot of fun so far. https://mastodon.social/media/TZuShK3UVRWoZ0VDCEg

I haven't made any of these diagrammatic cocktail recipes in far too long, so I put together one for a drink that @rhiannonstone and I made for the first time this week: https://cocktail.graphics/cocktail/la-sirena-clandestina-s-amaro-cocktail
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.
Pancakes and coffee in my belly, bo ssam in the oven, sausage-cheese balls on the table, Alice's Restaurant on the radio, @keweddji on my couch. Happy Thanksgiving!

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.
