I have a brand new laptop and a pretty decent home made mai tai, so I am surviving

You know, as much as I've been looking forward to my first Anthrocon in close to a decade this year, I'm sort of thinking, "is there really much chance the con is going to happen, all things considered?"

I am not saying that Tallulah the otter dancing with @VulpesMaximus@twitter.com's Jaymee the tigress would be extremely hot, but okay I am kind of saying that

Virtual meetings: all the fun of an in-person meeting, with the added thrill of audio and video dropouts

I've been sort of listless in editing _Saida & Autumn,_ for which I apologize. I may try to get the edited version of the _Red Savina_ script out first: Savina is pretty popular for a character most of you haven't really read about yet!

Back at the corner store for milk because I am bad at “buy what you need for 1–2 weeks.” Also for Pop-Tarts because I am apparently nine years old now

@pendragon It's something I'm mildly concerned about; I have a well-stocked home bar, and bought a fair amount of beer a couple weeks ago to help support local breweries. I'm at least making sure that if I have a drink every night, it is *a* drink, singular.

My creativity has basically been dead this last month. It's extremely frustrating. What little energy I have seems to be focusing itself on web programming—although I'm also quickly remembering why I left web dev a few years ago.

For the record, this management company (who bought out the original, arguably better one) earlier described turning half the free parking spots into paid ones as, and I swear I am not making this up, "expanding our parking options."

Me: okay, if I can't get going on Kani's story again, I should really write another Moira vignette.
Muse: have you considered giant coyote'taurs
Me: I mean—
Muse: paws for miles

@IceWolf Serif fonts are considered more legible for long-form text, in print or on high-DPI screens. But it's more important to have low stroke contrast, large x-height (the height of lowercase letters relative to capitals), more open apertures (i.e. the opening in "c" compared to "o"), and large counters (the enclosed space in a letter shape like the top of an "e").

(Also, it is possible I am a typography nerd.)

The ending of "Star Trek Picard" was extremely TNG, mostly in the best way.
