    Simply swapping two vowels really changes that sentence. :lol:

    True. But - if a photo isn't taken, is it even picturesque? And @MadGinga yes. Two, IIRC.

    Top marks. Tea dispensed from mouth all over desk.

    A squirrel in a frock dancing in the field with flowers?
    Sounds quite Beatrix Potter or Disney to me...

    I did something else instead, it was boring. (And yes I'm really milking that pun)

    And now I have 6x 25mm conduits that run through the garage ceiling, inside an 1st floor wall, and pop out in the loft. And this pleases me greatly.

    My boss came back from a weeks holiday, he thanked me for ‘holding the fort’ but really drilled it home. I could tell he’d had a much needed break.

    I did nothing, I can’t pretend like I did... nada... just supported my colleagues when they needed me but my actual contribution in terms of leadership was negligible.

    However, I could tell he really meant it and knowing he was able to put full trust in me enough to fully disengage from work and leave everything in my hands meant a a lot. He’s very hands on, finds it very hard to not be involved even when on leave. He’s even been known to attend meetings virtually when on holiday.

    last week, didn’t hear a peep out of him

    Went out in skinny jeans, a babydoll tee and my new brace. I may have also finally started my titty skittles. I have engagements here for about two years. When I move it will be transitioned.

    Where the hell do they make cute shoes for a 14 wide in men's (US sizes?)

    So yeah. Overkill happened, ear piercings number two appeared and decided what kind of tattoo I'll do on my right arm.

    Got a date coming up in two weeks. She's a transwoman as well, we have been talking for weeks now and exchanged safewords

    I love what my life is becoming

    Has Bill made you do anything weird yet? Or haven't you noticed?

    That part is dormant until more of the population gets done.

    Strange - I've felt compelled to install Windows on a new device almost daily since I got mine :worried:

    As a Mac user, I suppose I should say something snarky like "Isn't that pretty normal for Windows though? hnar hnar hnar"

    Soo, you had the talk with the boss yet? You know..the one about free doughnuts. Holding down the fort is a Heroes job..but bakery goods are acceptable. If he is the type to be amenable you might even plum for Fish N Chips..but..be careful. Some bosses are tight AS.

    An observation. People on every discord server I frequent, call me Donna or Red.

    I'm not complaining, not at all

    God damn I missed being out on the bike!

    First time I've done any serious miles on the Pan European. Damn fine bike to ride around the twisties, and if you need to get from one end of the country to the other then this things just devours motorway miles. Handling definitely goes a little top-heavy with full fuel tanks, and you really don't want the windscreen up when you hit about ~55-60MPH, but feels so much more planted than my NC750X did. Very easy to let the speedo drift well into illegal territory if you're used to bikes with smaller engines.

    Having to manage your time at work and with my family makes my life awesome! So far, I got no stress from work and that's all that matters.

    Syncthing now includes support for automatic encryption for files stored on an untrusted device - previously you had to use something over the top of Syncthing for that, and it'd mean the files were encrypted on all synchronised devices.

    It's testing-only for now, but it'll make secure offsite storage a lot easier!

    Tank trolling....



    We weren't having the best of games last night. Poor zone choices. Tree called in a BRDM and went off to rescue Marts. We managed to get out of the blue, but had pretty crap weapons as we didn't have long enough to look properly. After getting back in the zone Mart decided he didn't want to ride my tank any more :( so I went on alone. I managed to find some friends, who for some reason thought they could stop my fun. Oh no, enjoy the tank !. I squashed one and then the other one started getting a bit cheeky so I popped out and gave him the wrong end of my pumpy. Absolutely hilarious I do love me a good troll :D
