This is a Now page, and if you have your own website, you should make one, too. Cheers to maya.land for the emoji structure. Last updated on 25 September 2022.

I don’t feel the need to take myself so seriously online anymore. So I’m slowly incorporating some playful elements into this site (like status.lol, above) to recapture some whimsy I’ve missed.

🏡

FunkyPlaid and I are still recovering from our bout with COVID-19 at the start of September. We’re looking forward to getting our bivalent boosters as soon as possible.

🏢

The library is currently at Service Level 4.75 of 5, which means we’re almost operating at the capacity we want to be. We still have maximum occupancy limits in certain spaces, and we’re still adhering to physical distancing requirements. The pandemic is not over.

🤔

Thinking a lot about boundaries. I am in a near-constant state of re-reading Nedra Glover Tawwab’s book “Set Boundaries, Find Peace: A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself”.

✍🏻

Creatively, I’m at a standstill while home is in flux. Hope to get back to it soon.

My daily-carry fountain pens are currently inked with:

  • Sailor Manyo Nekoyanagi
  • TWSBI Sky Blue
  • Troublemaker Inks' Autumn Rain Gray
  • Troublemaker Inks' Petrichor
  • Oblation Papers & Press Portland Rain

More ink and pen thoughts are on my Analog page.

🎮

I occasionally stream the games I’m playing on my Twitch channel.

🎧

Last.fm tells me I’ve been enjoying They Might Be Giants, Moxy Früvous, Matthew Sweet, New Order, Alice in Chains, Beastie Boys, Pearl Jam, Arcade Fire, and Beach Weather.
