Went out for lunch with a friend. As it was a day off, dressed a bit more me than work.
Walking home from lunch cute guy walking toward me suddenly does That Smile.
Embarrassed, I just checked you out and thought "Oooh, Daddy!" and I'm entirely sure that just registered physically... That Smile.
Morning Show more
This morning whilst walking to work I saw a moment that had me reflecting that I wished I drew better/more reliably.
I want a cartoon/comic of an Assassin’s Creed “leap of faith” pose with the guy from behind, teetering. Then leaning forward to … transform into a little old lady stepping out into a crosswalk with her dog.
“Nope, traffic’ll stop. Leap of Faith, mo’fos.”

Discovering there's a Home Depot on Davie street... which is actually the block I have my lunch on.
I picked up a starter herb kit and set it up last night. Also got a small pot set up for a cutting today (just realized I need a pan for it and thinking of starter food).
This is very much like when my tattoo shop was literally at the end of the block by my home.
Not good at all. :P

So... I had an African Violet in my office that I saved. It's now the size of a small village. Last week I was given two rescues because they thought they were dying. I've been asked if I want to give a cutting/new one to someone, just today.
And I just walked in with a bunch of pots and soil. I think they think I'm starting a nursery. I'm not - these are for herbs and for home.
But I'm repurposing the original herb pots for cuttings. :P

You realize you've just gone on for like ten minutes about the minutae of a game you're playing to a friend because a] it's FINALLY something "cool" or "upbeat" to talk about ("hey, neat game!") and while you don't THINK you complain all the time it FEELS like it... and b] all you actually want to do is scream randomly and flail.

I've discovered that if given the chance to run an AI empire that only attacks biological lifeforms? I'm FAR too gleeful wiping out other empires.
"Oh, that's your home planet... here's a Colossus to blow it up. No, no, don't surrender, I'm not done destroying your species..."
I MIGHT... might, mind you, have minor aggressions I'm processing in that poor, poor fictional galaxy.
How I work Show more
There is a scene in STNG wherein Scotty exclaims that you NEVER tell people the REAL time it takes to do something. Tell em a week, get it done in an hour and be a superstar.
In my job? I do this for two reasons. One is as support we have a variable schedule. And saying variable is like saying the center of the sun is mildly tepid.
So give myself time to work through what SHOULD be and what MIGHT be. AND give time to look like a superstar for being done way earlier than I said.

Yesterday I did the... "put the bits together and make a finished product" on 8 out of 10 videos. I already had one done from last week (before I got sick). I finished the last one this morning. I'm just waiting on the conversion to webm format and then I'm done with them.
Meanwhile I filmed and just finished the post bit with a lecture today. In about 20 minutes it'll have the first bit online (it finished an hour ago and I didn't get to get to it until 20 minutes ago).
People are starting to realize I like plants and am good... I just (JUST) repotted two African Violets and put them in my window at work. For someone who thought they were dying (they're fine just low on light and space).
People at work are freaked out (which is odd) that I like plants and that I'm good with them. I'm... I give up on people. I just don't even know what to say to that kind of thing. o.O
Food : Huh Show more
I loooathed asparagus as a kid. So I didn't have any until I was an adult. Say last year. And it's always, always been something of "two or three spears".
Which I enjoyed. Last night the husband made a ... whole whack of em. What is the correct term? Bushel?
And suddenly at bedtime..
"So THAT'S what they're talking about. Well. Then."
