Wow, I haven't been here for a while. I'm such a bad social media user. :blobsad:

Here's a question you don't ever expect to hear from your Dad "how do yu know when to pick your rockarrots?"

(from our discord channel I set up for our private ARK server). 😄

Watching some server admin udemy videos - despite awful levels of concentration I think I'm actually learning things. Taking notes though which is making progress take twice as long, my memory isn't to be relied on!

I notified Amazon about this on twitter, but I don't expect they'll do anything.

45 years young today! I was going t drag the camera out to show off my lovely new vintage fountain pen, but sorry, can't be arsed. Gaming day today, busy building things in ARK. Maybe tomorrow... 🐱

Just bought my birthday present from the husband for next Thursday, a vintage Conway Stewart 84 Look at that nib! I seriously doubt my ability to keep my mitts off it until next Thursday...

After months of playing ARK I finally found and tamed an otter. They're too cute!

"Two struggling strangers connect during a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial involving a doctor with mother issues and an emotionally complex computer."

This sounds like my kind of show. (Maniac.)

So this just arrived. Let the (second) binge watching commence! I think this is the first tv show I have a physical copy of.

Doing my best to learn server admin stuffs. Probably not the best idea on 4hrs of sleep.

Think I'll go play Ark instead, save the learning for tomorrow.

New blog and new quick cheap keyboard review

Using @write_as for the blog and loving it so far. I know, it's not open source but everything else about it is great, especially the ease of use. And it beats that medium place hands down.

Just bought a Kuru Toga mechanical pencil (Roulette model). No idea why really, as I always almost write with a fountain pen, but the idea appealed to me. Could be handy for quick on the go note taking... Who am I kidding, I just fancied a stationery splurge.

Currently wrangling with a Hugo theme, as well as exploring (both are excellent). Not really sure why I do this, I spend days getting things set up, make one or two blog posts then forget about it. But I always have this urge to tinker and every time I promise myself I'll start writing regularly.
Oh well, it's a pleasant if frustrating cycle to be stuck in.

Just bought Two Point Hospital, so excited. Shouldn't have really, but it's my reward to myself for getting over a nasty virus that gave me horrible vertigo this week. That's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it. :D

Daughter works for large supermarket chain. I love hearing about her work life. For example, this conversation with a customer.

Customer: "I'd like to return this shower head please."
Daughter: "No problem. Can I ask what the problem is? Is it faulty or did you just change your mind?"
Customer: "Oh I got home and realised I didn't have a shower."

Like, dude, wtf?
