Living in a world of shitty things is not a valid excuse for not doing good things.

She lives in a tree
sleeps in the winter
wakes in the springtime
sings with my voice

Birds are her children
wild beasts her sons
the sea is her daughter
mother of all

Rain is her house
clouds the roof of it
many her windows
lit by the moon

She walks in the meadows
clad only in wind
sweet rivers pour down
from her mountains

When people lived real lives, they didn't need an ad to tell them they needed a bucket to fetch water.

MtM Lessons of Solitaire

Odd wait-a-bit animation on a website I just ran across. Looks like a laptop flapping its lid. Or some alien concept I just don't get. 🤔

odd little box lid - should try it with larger paper, might fold cleaner

One round of aerobic exercise done; the snailman can get through. Time for qudiobooks and origami. Current reading: Dracula.

Didn't leave my bed for 6 hours - not too shabby. Teakettle's tooting about hot water for coffee now.

All day my right hip has been getting crankier. Hurts like heck to walk now. Arthritis is also firing warning shots over my left elbow. Desperate enough for aspirin.

I hope this isn't trying out for a regular weather-related role. Shoveling snow can be bad enough without being crippled every time there's snow to shovel.

On the less bad side, I haven't heard from foot or wrist . . . .

Names of downloaded vids from PeeewTube drive me nertz. Special characters, dots, multi-lingual multi-alphabet names, extra spaces 😱

I should probably check to see if the front door is getting blocked by snow. 😬

Not going anywhere today. It's a good time for sorting files and origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami origami

Impressive self-hosted videoconferencing tool developed by a single person, Miroslav Pejic.

Ran across one of my prototype snapshots yesterday, so I had to work on it. When I woke up too early and couldn't get back to sleep, I got down on figuring out the pre-folds.

It's a "popper" - the final folds are sort of magical.

N.B. Depending on who was in charge of doing the recording, there might still be wailing and gnashing of teeth, never mind rending garments.

Some Zoom recordings end up ridiculously complicated. They are not a simple one-view straight-on recording, but a more realitic representation of the live event - and therefore a fucking train-wredk. Downloads may be sound-only blank black wastes-of-bytes.

Need I mention that I LOATHE ZOOM?

Some Farcebork scams are so old they remember pet rocks.

Well-cooked sprouted kamut melting in my mouth . . . *tries to imagine some poor tool enjoying a bowl of sludge flakes*

Mercy me, my Facebarf origami page is up to 94 likes - most of them pretty recent.

Toit!
Modular box lid from 4"x6" paper (DollarTree notepad)

Fits over a box folded from 6" squares, a simple module by Tomoko Fuse. Now I have to find out if she has already done mine . . . . 🤣
