I gotta figure out how to get this one out of the way so I can build at least one more, hmm.
took the day off to go hike in a couple of woods (Brighton Rec Area & a nature preserve near Fenton) and visit our favorite orchard and cider mill (Al Mar Organics) up in Flushing. Had lunch at the Brighton Theater Cafe, which was surprisingly nice—they have a patio on the mill pond.
Nobody in Brighton masks, which tracks.
A really nice day! Highly recommended.
My brother now sends me all of McSweeney's satires of the academic world, and they're always great: https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/our-faculty-success-initiative-redefines-everything-you-thought-you-knew-about-faculty-and-success
I am so very sore today. Advil, the breakfast of champions.
Now that I know the dimensions for the gussets I can mass produce those and try to knock out the other (checks notes) 7 😆. And then walls, and then, and then, etc. etc.
#fridaycheckin been listening to a lot of Lofi / Synthwave streams/mixes on youtube as background this week, and I quite like it. Here are a couple mixes from channels I've liked: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-Ah_wt-k_U and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ITiwPMUzho
This week has been a blur, time moving dangerously fast. I'm getting a little bit done on a lot of different projects, but mostly I'm wanting to be out there building trusses for my shed or running/playing board or tabletop games with people.
Having disclosed this publicly I now realize that I am costing myself the opportunity to position myself as a consultant ;). Well, shucks.
The one time my friend Gene and I semi-seriously worked on designing a game we ended up in a very similar place (I have printouts of these in a box under my desk), now working in that industry it is I guess heartening to know that two 22 year old complete newcomers to the field can arrive at the state of the art design organization system a priori

Refrigerator died 🙃; freezer still works, but the fans that move the cold air up to the fridge gave out. Bought an LG, which consumer reports liked slightly better than the Whirlpool, but both seemed like good buys.
Two weeks minimum for delivery, so it's fortuitous we decided not to get rid of this little dorm fridge from Heather's old studio last month :).
