outback witch house s01e16ish: send me a vision so at least i know

Whew! A long week, but some cool things are afoot – I can’t talk about all of them right now, but I will soon. A bonus cool thing is I now have a laser-cut lap loom that I have been attempting to wrap (warp? lolol) my head around all day. And slightly apropos of nothing, if you’re reading this and you’re a library-ish person, would you consider submitting something to our call for proposals?

Tonight’s show was stuffed with excellent requests from folks, so please keep those coming in. As I mentioned on the show, I like finding a way to try to make all this stuff work together. If this program had a more professional name, it would be something like “Interstitial Lines.” But instead, we’ve got no rules and it’s just right.

outback witch house s01e14: you must be aloof

Oy, I’m worn out. I am very much looking forward to being off next week, because in truth, the recent ambiguity combined with grief cocktail is just not making it very easy for me to chill–at least not to the extent I need to in order to recharge these days.

Not much to report ’round these parts that’s suitable for the ol’ blorg. I remain befuddled at people’s sense of timing, and infuriated at the degree to which library database providers have melded with data analytics surveillance deathray companies. Also, I got a bit of professional-personal news that put a smile on my face this week. I look forward to being able to share it with you, inevitable tide of criticism be damned.

Spring is definitely starting to get sprung ’round here and at least there’s that. I pulled the Empress, and I do intend to see my mom this week, so that’s a thing.
