Shout out to my niece who received her Girl Scout Silver Award! Great going!
Finding it hard to come up with interesting topics to talk about or even things to whine about today. I’m feeling rather uninspired on all fronts. That means, of course, that I just have to sit down and write something, even if it’s not the best thing I’ve ever written. I *did* get a lot done for my day job today, so that might be part of it.
Maybe I can just finish up some editing bits and call that good. Or finish reading a book.
Casual puzzle game recommendation: Water Sort Puzzle from IEC Global Pty Ltd. (Not sponsored). It is worth the like, three dollars, to get rid of the ads. Basically, you need to sort out the different colors. The conceit is that you’re pouring layered fluids until they’re all in the correct test tube. I’m in the late 200s of levels and I have no idea how many layers they have or if they’re randomly generated. Still, I enjoy it greatly. If you like actual logic puzzles, I think you’ll like this one. It’s on Apple ios, but I’m sure it’s probably on other platforms, given the relative simplicity of it.
I’m reading The Refrigerator Monologues by Cat Valente. Is it good? Yes. Definitely. Especially if you’re a comics person. Is it hard? Yes. I will offer trigger warnings for sexual violence, death, and plain old violence. And well, if you’ve got any idea of the derivation of characters being “fridged,” then you will understand when I say that these are first person stories about female characters who were “fridged”. They are analogs not the actual characters because copyright is an issue. But if you’re in the fandom? You know who these women are. Really, you do. Trust me. There’s only one where I’m not actually sure who she’s an analog for, but I can guess what fandom she’s from. It’s good. And hard. And I will be glad to have read it, but I don’t know that I’ll ever re-read it. I still will recommend it. The same what I recommend Handmaid’s Tale.
