The birth (or death) of a relative, the release of a new program, game, series, movie, the date you were dreaming about, could be anything

Our TTRPG group just wrapped up a campaign, we'll be starting a new one soon with new players. There was some campaign fatigue, so I'm stoked for a fresh start (and I know some others are, too), with new players, too!

I've got tomorrow off, which is neat.

The weather was pretty good today.

My kid will go to summer camp soon and I'll have a little bit of time again. Looking forward to it.

In a few days I'll be moving to a new state to be closer with my long distance girlfriend of a year. I've been feeling pretty directionless and stuck for a long time now, so I'm looking forward to being able to start a new chapter of my life.

I’m gonna go camping. Not sure where or where yet, but I’m gonna drive up into the mountains and spend a couple nights in the tent.

Excited might be going a bit far but hopefully getting a referral to General Medicine and a little closer to understanding what's wrong with me all the time.

Beyond that some D&D I plan to run when I'm better. Planning and plotting as we speak 😎

Going to see NOFX next month, during their final tour. I can't wait to sing My Vagina out loud with a big crowd.

Realistic: Getting a faster motorcycle and going on longer touring rides and track days with it. I currently have a Suzuki GZ250 but it struggles on the highway, and the acceleration of even a "middleweight" bike like the Trident 660 is exhilarating.

Unrealistic: Getting a girlfriend...

I think a lot of the worst people on earth are getting pretty old and grey, so it'll be fun to watch the world turn as they fall off.

The colour ereader I just got is pretty cool. It draws much faster than anticipated and looks pretty good. The pen (mpp type) from my laptop works with it so I don't have to pay even more to scribble dicks in my books like its 2009. It's actually repairable unlike the previous ones too. I'm still bitter about the screen of my previous one getting permanent stripes down the left side and across the top and repair not being an option at all, not even by sending it out.

Would you mind sharing mark and model?

oh its the kobo libra colour and libra 2.

Heres my unasked for review of sorts of both just for the hell of it...

The colour is probably about 1mm reduced in outer shell with the same screen dimensions but slightly different usb location so cases dont carry over perfectly. I'm still using the old case for the time being but being careful not let it pop out.

The libra 2 I've had since 2022 and pampered the damned thing but hilariously close to the release of the colour models the screen died. It would still be an excellent device that I'd be using otherwise. I have carried it in my jacket's tablet pocket with my tablet and kobo's screens facing each other, the kobo in the magnetic cover case and a piece of microfiber wrapped cardboard between them. somehow it must have gotten imperceptibility bent and ruined the screen recently between home and work. To the best of my knowledge there is no replacement part for the bw screen.

The Libra 2 screen has fewer layers compared to the colour so white is whiter, imagine stacking screen protectors until it starts to darken or making a mirror tunnel and comparing how it gets darker the deeper in it goes. The colours arent super vibrant but it's still pretty cool and more mind boggling how it doesn't drain more power once drawn even compared to the previous gen panels. Picture is no backlight night mode in a dim room.

I'm a little bitter and wouldn't recommend the libra 2 in hindsight but it's not available any more. The colour has the disadvantage of case incompatibility and darker white but with the black shell it's not very noticeable because of the contrast. The latest models, kobo libra colour and clara colour/bw, have repair parts available through ifixit (except for clara bw screen it seems) for actually pretty reasonable prices. Kobo itself has seemingly no tech support for the english speaking world and their own site as well as their twitter seem to be bots that give you the runaround on every topic. They released the linux kernel sources for older models but not for the new devices and not for some previous models and revisions so other linux distro projects like quill os are potentially hindered.

I'm currently excited for the batch of ice cream setting up in my freezer. gonna be tasty.

"Poor man's ice cream from '49"

Vanilla flavor. I've got some apples I intend to bake, and some strawberries I've cut up, it'll go great with both.

While the original publisher of the recipe called it "Poor man's ice cream" and it is indeed quite inexpensive to make, I prefer to think of it as homemade soft serve. It comes out with a much softer smoother texture than traditionally churned ice cream; you're in no danger of bending a tablespoon in this stuff. It also requires no churn; it can be made with more multifunctional tools like a hand or stand mixer.

Nice I'll check it out too

Pay day, I've been working on a new project at work, and the time I've put in for it gets paid at a higher rate - I'll end up with a little more than double my usual paycheck!

Got debt down from $18K to 6K in 8 months. Would be 1K if Colorado would ever approve our electric car rebate for 5K. Slow bastards.

I'm currently at solshine rêverie (formerly summer camp) in Illinois, enjoying the vibes and being way too baked to function in normal society, but here it's considered good etiquette

I just got a new immersion blender.

Milkshakes and vindaloo :)
