Digital-Doodle: Rey

Since I had done a couple Sith portraits, I decided to try my hand at some characters on the Light Side of the Force... because I am a nerd.

So apparently imzy is The New Fandom Thing. Whether that's true or not remains very much to be seen, but I've chosen to get in early and grab my name; if anyone wants an invite, whack your email in the (screened) comments and I'll send one your way. :D

Oh, and if anyone has an Imzy blog or comm, let me know the name and I'll come join up!

I know that if you have to explain a joke it’s aleady a failure, but this weekend my friend Tina was playing Junkrat while I was working to win me some lootboxes. At the start of one round she casually approached a wall, stuck a mine to it at eye-level, and as she went to detonate it in her own face realized what she was doing and yelled out “Wait! That’s not my spray!”

The group decided it was the single most Junkrat thing any of us had ever seen.

Hey so I just have seen that a thing people seem to be doing on imzy is making self-named comms to post their stuff in? So here is mine:

It doesn't quite make sense to me yet, I haven't actually USED it for anything other than posting one test notification (for a new little Dragon Age story I posted on AO3 which I have been too lazy to post anywhere else yet), but I am there! Also I got a heap of invites as a result of creating a comm, so if you want one, just go here:

and put in your email and I'll approve asap.

So you're sitting there across from the kid who's just done something dumb. Your role here is scriptural -- not in the sense that it's according to the scriptures, but in the sense that you're needing to say something that will be "profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness." You're concerned, in other words, not just with what this kid did, but with what this kid is becoming -- with the different kinds of person this kid could potentially become.

The Solution
by Bertolt Brecht

After the uprising of the 17th June
The Secretary of the Writers Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

(Actually posted on Wednesday! Go me!)

Finished reading:
The drawing of the three by Stephen King. So I started this one sort of hesitantly, and it wavered between interesting and vaguely obligation reading, because I'd bought this as a paper book (yeah, I know I can still stop, but I Invested Money in it. It's been so long since I bought a fiction book, idek). And I read along, with that wavering interest, and then somewhere in the last hundred pages or so it slid into gear and I was going to bed early to keep reading and etc.

And I then I wavered over the third one, because I that's a goddamn seven book series I'm possibly staring down, and I wasn't sure about continuing, even after that gripped ending. Then I went and read [personal profile] rachelmanija's post (post contains big general spoilers for Book 2, and ... spoilers for book 3 that will be tasty tidbits if you've read 2, and probably brutal spoilers if you haven't read 2. If that makes sense.) And that post was enough to whet my appetite, and I've bought book 3 accordingly.

Currently reading: The waste lands by Stephen King, obv. I'm hoooping to try for a book a fortnight as general goal. We'll see how that goes.

Up next: If I don't fall straight into Dark Tower 4, definitely definitely going for Wake by Elizabeth Knox. My interest was piqued by Abigail Nussbaum's review, and I read the first few pages in the bookshop this afternoon, and dang, if I hadn't already committed to The waste lands I would have bought that instead. That looks to be some smooth writing, and I'm excite.

Public Service Announcement re: bats

Apparently nowadays when you find a dead bat in your living space, the public health authorities really want you to bring it in immediately for rabies testing, or refrigerate it until you can do so.

And if, instead, you flung it out on the lawn to decay ... well, the public health authorities want everyone who slept in that house to have a series of rabies shots. On account of bat bites being painless and leaving nearly no visible marks.

At least they don't do the shots in the belly any more. Three on the arms, four on the butt, and three more emergency room visits to come. I don't even like to think about how much this is going to cost.

So fridge that bat, friends. You'll be glad you did.

Why are public figures so bad at apologizing?

It has to do with belittlement: an audience’s feeling of being dissed, and its desire to see the culprit shrink. The problem is, big stars don’t want to become little planets. 

So how does a bigshot—or you, for that matter—apologize without shrinking? Follow these steps:

  1. Own up to the mistake. Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
  2. Focus on your emotions, not how you hurt someone else. Say how bad you feel about screwing up.
  3. Show how your mistake was an exception to the rule. You’re a great, thoughtful person who temporarily lapsed.
  4. Promise improvement and show what you’re going to do to fix any remaining problems.

Here’s a video I did with details.

From Honolulu Civil Beat: “I want it understood by the general public and the media that the recent inflammatory comments made by candidate for Congress (CD2) Angela Kaaihue do not represent the views, values, or the sentiments of our Party and its members,” Fritz Rohlfing said in a statement issued late Friday. “Her vulgar, racially-bigoted, and religiously-intolerant descriptions of Democratic Party candidates are offensive, shameful, and unacceptable in public discourse.”
