• Disappointment begets inertia

    Have you ever felt like your tools outright hate you? I don’t mean your electric drill suddenly turning on you, à la Skynet. I’m talking about things being generally uncooperative. You know, the spoon that spills and splashes, the key that refuses to fit in the lock, the gawdamn USB that won’t go in the slot. Or, specifically in today’s case, the divination tools that won’t cooperate. There are certainly days I feel under attack my physics in general, and there are days when it seems metaphysics is out to get me. It’s hard when a tarot deck that has taken a disliking to you keeps turning up cards the…

  • Promise and Resolve and Tangents

    Audio. What’s this audio about, anyway? I think every year starts with promise – and promises. I could wax philosophical and suggest every day starts with the same, or that it’s all a construct by consensus because time is both relative and meaningless. But I think we’re all a bit tired of that contrarian perspective. Even after 2020 and its terrible sequel, 2021, a lot of us are tentatively looking toward 2022 with hope for a fresh start. Our collective consensus of time agreed that at 00:00 between the 31st of December and 1st of January we’ll open our new diaries and write out our promises to ourselves for the…

  • Meal Preparation: Breakfast

    This is probably my favourite meal of the day, though it wouldn’t matter if I ate it for breakfast or for dessert. It’s just so tasty and nutritious. I used to prepare it from scratch the evening before so it could soak overnight, but, as with my other meals, I’ve started pre-preparing most of it for the week ahead to better manage my portions. Preparing it while I’m waiting for my evening meal to be ready to serve meant I was hungry at the time and tended to put more into the mix than I really needed. I don’t need a workman’s breakfast for a day of transcribing or writing…

  • Meal Preparation: Snacks

    I never thought I’d be the sort of person who’d write a series of journal entries about food preparation. I rarely react to food posts other people share, so I almost feel hypocritical writing about this. That said, this journal and all these entries are mostly for my own sake. I should write about that weird duality of writing to self for self that is journalling. Anyway, I really love fruit. Fruit is sweet and juicy and flavoursome, and you can create some wicked taste combinations by mixing and matching. Strawberry, kiwi, and rockmelon (cantaloupe) are delicious together. I don’t like canned fruit salad, though. That syrupy crap? Blech! Fresh…
