the berries space server spontaneously recited the tears in rain monologue but, thats probably fine
every time someone says something tastes like cough syrup as an insult I remember that when I was 2 I stole the cough syrup and got the safety lid off and drank half a bottle cuz Tastey
incidentally I do enjoy diet soda now, so the comparison may not be too far off
All this drink talk makes me want a hot ginger tonic. Cover some chunks of peeled ginger with water, boil for an hour, put in some hot pepper, throw it in a blender, and pour a few spoons into sparkling water (or tonic water if you want the sweet/actually want a tonic).
I’m not convinced it’s actually got any health properties, regardless of proponents, but it’s tasty as hell.
I’m thinking about a recumbent trike but they’re so expensiiiiiive
but no car :0
Stepmania pad update: my second strongest resistors are way too weak, and my strongest are way too strong. So now I’m waiting on the extra ones I ordered to arrive... on economy mail from Britain. >_>
Oh well, they’ll get here eventually!

I got my EMG tests back today, and, uh, I don’t have carpal tunnel syndrome, which I have spent hundreds on treatments for. I also got X-rays, and thank God, no arthritis.
The orthopedic doctor has now sent me to see a neurologist, since various objective measures suggest there’s some kind of issue where the nerve’s getting weak signals. Possibly poor Vitamin B absorption, but there’s a good chance they won’t be able to figure it out or treat it. When it rains it pours, I guess!
The displays for my VPets finally arrived, so now I’m trying to put together designs a good set of pets for like tops a 60x50ish resolution, and ideally much less (due to RAM concerns).
I am not a designer, it turns out X_X
Extremely early dance pad prototype! There’s a looooooong way to go from here, haha, but the core concept is there.
I discovered that the author of my favorite young adult series as a youth is a lesbian, which seems obvious in retrospect. The fourth in the series pretty much sparked my queer awakening. It was marked as Red Dot in the library, so I needed a permission slip from my parents saying I could read mature books to check the series out, AND I couldn’t until 7th grade...
The first book had awesome cover art of a hawk, and I waited my whole 6th grade year impatiently for the chance to read it!

Bee bombs (seed bombs of bee-friendly plants) are a cool idea, but they often focus on non-native bees used in food production over native bees, and frequently include non-native and sometimes even invasive plants. Don’t use any that don’t list the plant seeds inside, and check to make sure those plants belong where you’re planting them!
I got my capacitive touch code working!
Now I just need a bunch of potentiometers and boards and project homemade stepmania hard pad will be a go 😎
