Lounging across the two front seats of the car and killing time until my eldest child finishes musical theatre group...
Light has gone, so I cannot read paper. 🤷♂️
A two hour session it is. Been and done the Aldi shopping, but that really didn't take too long.
Shame it's not closer to home so I could get there & back. But that would just be a waste of time and fuel.
Though the guy also waiting in the car park with his engine running seems to have money to burn every week.
Drove along the road to the end and took this looking back. Table Mountain on the left and Lion's Head on the right. Phone pic.
Mastodon doesn't punish you for living your life.
It doesn't actively take metrics of your interactions to gauge your social or cultural capital.
Never will it demand that you post this much to be or stay relevant to the community, disappearing into the void if you don't meet The Quota.
So please, for the love of toot, take breaks whenever you feel you need to! We'll be here when you get back!
"It may, however, be a mistake to jump to conclusions" 😹
At some point in the last few years, we have:
) Viewed you through a scrying pool and/or mirror
) Crafted a double of you from blood and willpower and used it to manipulate your moods and actions and/or
) Sunk into a dark liquid pool, then rose again to the surface but the surface was your eyes, through which we saw all you saw, thought as you thought, as intimate as breath.
Due to new legislation, now we have to ask:
Can we keep doing all that?
Watching 20,000 Days On Earth and I love this part from Nick Cave:
"Songwriting is about counterpoint. Counterpoint is the key. Putting two disparate images beside each other and seeing which way the sparks fly.
Like letting a small child in the same room as… I don't know… A Mongolian psychopath or something. And just sitting back and seeing what happens.
Then you send in a clown, say on a tricycle. And again you wait, and you watch. And if that doesn't do it… You shoot the clown."
Starting to wear through the outer material on my favourite running sandals. Trouble is, as soon as it goes, it tears up fast as the softer material abrades really quickly.
Always such a shame as by this point they have moulded to my feet beautifully and the leather upper is holding up brilliantly 🤷♂️
Might have to start looking around for a replacement, sometimes it takes a while to find something in the UK/EU.
Continuing the #fungus theme.
Branching Oyster Mushroom - Pleurotus cornucopiae
This white #mushroom is very closely related to the Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) which is cultivated & sold commercially. Apparently, as well as looking like the bivalve, they both taste like it.
The botanical name partly comes from the Latin word "pleuro" which means to the side, in reference to the position of the stem to the cap.
Doctor: I'm terribly sorry but the tests are back. Your child is artistic.
Doctor: Now don't worry, it's not the end of the world. Your child will never have the mind of an executive, but with modern innovations like Etsy, Patreon and Kickstarter, they may be able to pay rent well into their mid-20s.
Parent: Did... did crayons do this
Doctor: Who can say? We're exposed to so many forms of art every day: music, poetry, language, geometry..
Parent: We're getting crayons BANNED
Artist Artemis Myasnikov drew Disney princesses as armored warriors
My only complaint: there appears to be no Princess/General Leia. https://mastodon.cloud/media/yWNF1P0JZqqDDgKTVOI https://mastodon.cloud/media/oXd9k2PvvLUQpyWC9DQ https://mastodon.cloud/media/2Y8Ik4T17_ci_qlwfHI
