Where I'm gonna put up PDFs and ODTs of short stories, probably all set in the Colonized Earth universe. Maybe more organization will come later, IDK.

Stages of me being drunk:

Stage 1: Drinking, this gonn' be good
Stage 2: Buzzed, fun and fuzzy
Stage 3: Wheeeee!
Stage 4: So, like, you're great
Stage 4.2: Like, OMG how are all the people I know so awesome? u.u
Stage 5: Gosh I hope they know they're awesome. I should tell them. Am I being sappy? SAP IS HOW MAPLE SYRUP IS MADE THEY NEED TO KNOW

I get out of the shower, and my house is frigid. So I close the window. Immediately broiling. x-x

I saw a UFO today. It flashed at me twice as I flew along the north-west shore of Cook Inlet. A bright light, like a lighthouse but at ~3,000 feet.

It was probably just a C-130 from Elmendorf doing midair refueling training up near Big Lake, but technically, since I didn't identify it and nobody told me what it is, it's a UFO

Game Idea:

Among Us, but there's no invader, and it's just a bunch of people working together to complete tasks on a ship and there's no conflict just cooperation and companionship

Yeah. I don’t know how anyone with a conscience or empathy is getting anything done right now.

US Pol 


alchohol, mental-health adjacent 

Some morning I get up and think "Today's the day, I'm gonna just be drunk all day" even though I'm on-call and would have to take a day off work to do that.

And that thought lifts my spirits enough, and I sit here sipping water and coffee, imagining being drunk, and I'm pretty sure I'm never gonna actually do it.

Thoughts on peoples' self-defined politics, especially self-identified centrists 

One thing Bob Altemeyer wrote about in The Authoritarians (link: was that people who scored moderately to low on the "right-wing authoritarian" (RWA) scale, when asked how they'd prefer to scale, had a preference to be low. But people high on the scale said they'd prefer to score in the middle.

Altemeyer talks about how that's because a driving force of high-RWA people is to be average, a regular person.

I think about this a lot, especially because it seems a lot of self-described centrists tend to hold a lot of right-wing views.

Off to do the flapflaps! Take care, cuties!

Covid, work stuff 

I'm worried. Yesterday was a day of everyone in my plane coughing regularly. One wore a mask, though left his nose uncovered.

They sign a thing saying they dont have any covid symptoms, but, like, ....

Well, *starts a 14-day timer*

North America climate doomerism thoughts 

Just trying to think of where people will go.

Cascadia burns down. California's gonna drought into a desert while burning down. The midwest U.S. is hugely reliant on quickly-depleating aquifers, so that's gonna be a giant dust-bowl by the end of the century. The Gulf Coast and south Atlantic seaboard are gonna be inundated by rising sea-levels and all of the hurricanes. Just all of them.

That leaves, what, the St. Lawrence watershed and the Canadian Shield? Maybe the New England area, if the gulfstream doesn't somehow wreck that?

Doesn't seem like many places for the hundreds of millions of refugees that'll be coming just from this continent.


This might be the vodka talking but


Heck, I missed the Eek river in the picture, but Eek Island is visible at least.

Us pol, electoralism things 

I feel like if anyone is actually undecided -- like they're goingbto vote but dont know whether to back Biden or Trump -- they're too far gone to reach. Like, how can you look at what's happening and think "yeah, still not sure who to vote for tbh"?

Mmmm, nothing like a refreshing shot of Gatorade in the morning.


The movie National Treasure, but at the end it's a room where Fred Rogers lives

US Pol, supreme court, (---) 

Looking forward to the fastest supreme court justice nomination in U.S. history.

Looking forward to the publication of the list of democrats who voted for it.

Looking forward to the tweets by democratic congresspeople about how someone should do something.

Looking forward to nothing being done.
