We've had some new arrivals to the server, so I thought I'd post a re-

I'm a re-enactor/re-creationist, active in the for not quite 40 years now. In that time, I've done a little bit of a lot of things, but what stuck was combat - both heavy armoured and light rapier - and cookery. I eventually went back to school to work on medieval cooks and cookery.

I've been a gamer since before I was a re-enactor. I act and write.

I run computers to earn my daily bread.

The Long Dark game, hunting 

Well, it cost me most of a day, ten bullets, and two broken ribs, but I eventually got that moose.

Is it just me or is 'our website is unavailable in Europe due to GDPR' a complicated way of saying 'our data collection and management policies suck?'

New Ménagier de Downham Market!

I talk a little about medieval sauces and saucemakers, and then make a non-medieval bechamel.

covid, masks 

Told people on the train yesterday to put their masks on. I hate having to do that.

Me: Masks.
Them: (holds up mask, demonstrating they have one.)
Me: (resignedly) On.
Them: (slowly puts mask on)

So I got a commission to create a dice tower based on the Ghostbusters firehouse for 3d printing. Was a really fun project so if anyone else wants something similar hit me up!

Thousands of San Franciscans took to the streets to protest police violence. In response, police snooped on them with a vast business district camera network. They violated the city's new surveillance tech ordinance. So we sued.

COVID-19, food, sex 

Clutched my pearls hard when I saw people having a conversation about going to a restaurant with Tinder dates, until I realized that sitting maskless 3 feet across the table isn't the only bodily fluid they hope to be exchanging and then I was just angry anyone was in a restaurant at all again. Like, go meet outside before deciding to fuck and keep your exhalations out of the general public. And if you didn't end up liking them but still went to a restaurant? You got played.

Replying to myself, now with hashtags!

First draft of a Medieval Cookery Primer done!

I both started and finished my bike ride in the dark this morning. Fall is officially here.


Peanut sauce, hard boiled egg, cabbage, carrot. Not pictured - the rice noodles underneath it all.

I thought the earth remembered me,
she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,
nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths
among the branches of the perfect trees.
All night I heard the small kingdoms
breathing around me, the insects,
and the birds who do their work in the darkness.

Why would you call it Neapolitan when you could've called it "thrice cream"? 🤔

I am currently considering the ethics of cutting off communication with someone because they don't trim their emails when replying.

In the interest of science, I repeated the experiment again today, and am happy to report success!

Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
