Doll-finzzzz~! I'm giving the image hosting site Imgur a try at a friend's recommendation, after ranting hardcore at them about Photobucket being a butt. (Dreamwidth, I love you, and I am 100% going to store more images here and love it, especially for accessibility, but you currently don't have the image organization tools that I require. I have well over five hundred pictures of crocheted things alone, and don't care to try and sort through all of them every time I want to get to a Dreamsheep icon, for example.)

Anyway, these are all of the dolphins I've made so far for ICON, the local SFF con, one of whose staff members commissioned me to make a little somethin' for the Con Benefactor bags. They only need seventeen, but I'm like, why stop there? So I'm currently up to twenty-six, and there's still another week-and-a-half before the con for me to make more.

Lots of colors were specifically requested, or I probably (definitely) would've gone with all pale blue/periwinkle/gray/vaguely-real-dolphin-color-ish. (The color of the four light-blue-ish dolphins in the top of the picture is listed as "lavender" on the yarn. I mean, it looks a lot more blue-ish to me, but there's something like a 25-50% chance I'm a carrier for red/green colorblindness, so.) I think I'm kinda glad for that request, because it's actually made using the same pattern over and over again less boring :P I love how naturally the yarn tends to stripe, too.

\o/ Pun success!

I've finally found it: The perfect pun to use for romantic orientations in my Potions collection!

Roman-tonic :D

I gave serious thought to just adding "oil" to the end of romantic orientations, but it just didn't sit right with me. I'm definitely glad I gave myself the time to find something else.

Now I just gotta find something good and punny for gender identities. Gender Fluid and Genderflux Capacitor only cover two identities, and there's a lot more out there to think about.

Having realized because of a fic that I spend a lot of time cheating at/faking eye contact, I have come to the conclusion that I would probably recognize faces better if I spent more time actually looking at them.

The things you inadvertently learn/figure out because of fic, I tell ya.

From September 4, 2016 to September 4, 2017 I...
...bought a mill
...made a railbike
...started making deep dives into philosophy (consciousness and math/science)
...did a kinetic sculpture installation, landed a large public art contract, started to get responses to RFQ submissions
...found out I might not need cardiac surgery within the next decade after all
...saw a total solar eclipse
...started the adjustment to living in a post-democratic world

I dunno. It's been a year. Not a good one for getting a lot done, or for feeling hopeful about the future. Not a good one for dealing with an anxiety disorder, either. I feel like I'm coasting. I'm more scared than excited to see what my 40s are going to be like, and not from standard fear of mortality reasons. Though those are certainly there too.

Writing these annual review posts is usually a lot more fun.
