I was reading blog posts on Vincent Baker's website*, and this thread got me wondering about a game where the action-of-play consists of what cloths you wear.

I don't have a lot of development to that idea, which is the big reason I'm posting about it here rather than commenting about it there. (Free to a good home, because I don't have one, and all that.) But like, is color significant? Tshirt versus button-down? What is the goal here, what kinds of actions are legal moves and what are just kind of irrelevant?

* they did Dogs in the Vineyard and Mobile Frame Zero, and also other tatterpigs that I'd have to look up to tell you anything about.

Honestly though, Neon Genesis Evangelion feels really relatable right now. Hedgehog dilemas all over the damn place.

Hot take: yearly Christmas letters are the pre-internet version of the "Facebook highlight reel" effect.

Tired: Stress-impulse-buying myself a LEGO set I don't need while out shopping on an unrealistic deadline I set for myself.

Hired: Impulse-buy LEGO baseplate fifteen inches to a side. (This one's not the set, they're separate items.)

If, months or years down the line, I start identifying as "agender" (or similarly NB) -- I'm going to say that I first knew it back in October of 2017, I just didn't know that I knew it yet.

Half-baked (if that?) concept:

Superpowers are a thing. They kick in when you're, I don't know, like twenty or something, and are virginity-powered. They are explicitly available to literally anyone, and the group of people the setting/media/story follows is a balanced (50%~50%, more than three of each) mix of male and female.

I was picturing this as otherwise-completely-modern-world urban fantasy, probably with magical girl flavorings.

(Directly inspired by Sir Galahad as described here.)

Taxes happened today. It only took two and a half hours and all week and a not-subtle kick in the pants. The hab person came by today and sat around while I did my taxes but they got done.

Here are some things that did not happen today:

  • Laundry
  • Food. I eventually called a break on taxes to go grab something to eat so that I had anything at all to eat today. Yes, it was that necessary.

    I am perfectly capable of making food. It just wasn't happening today.

  • Dishes, or other cleaning/chores
  • Writing. (To be fair, "writing didn't happen today" has been the default state for the past month. And all year. And most of last year, actually.)

I did get one other blog post out today, plus (presumably) this one. I can't tell if that is because I had more blog energy than usual today, or I'm low energy and my standards are lower.
