Being working class has nothing to do with whether or not you're actively selling your labor, but whether or not you'll be punished if you don't.

Temperatures are down. No rain yet, which is a drag. And fires in the county. Lovely ...

Things I will not need to do today:
put the bread in the proofing box to rise

UK heatwave 

Already 36C outside in Norfolk ...

not too bad inside with the curtains drawn.

Every now and then I am reminded that Dave Grohl is the bomb.

That is all.

Except that in Latin there is no way no distinguish between being a bomb and being Da Bomb.

And Dave Grohl is Da Bomb.

The slaughter of reverted livestock is much easier when they don't zombify and have to be killed twice.

Carnage ensues. The final body count was:
two civilians
the necro
and from the livestock
a duck
a peregrine falcon
two giant bats
six giant cave spiders

Damn, I love this game.

Carnage! A necromancer immigrated to the fort early on, which is not a problem. Everyone liked her, so she got to be mayor. Still no problem. She was mostly insane, which was more of a problem. Stumbling and babbling, typical DF insanity.

Then a giant bat lost its training and reverted to wild. Here's where I'm fuzzy on the chronology. I think the necro raised the bat who started attacking and killing other livestock which also got raised ...

The tarragon in the back garden is nearly as tall as I am.

And for those of you who haven't met me, I am Not Short.

The tarragon has also just bolted, so there's that.

In other news, if anyone in the Norfolk area, especially along the A10, needs some tarragon, let me know.

Historical costuming terminology question 

Anyone know what one might call a belt or sash that's fastened just below the bust, as opposed to the waist?

One of my bros is trying to translate the Latin word "mammilare" which refers to such an accessory.

I'm coming up blank. (And no I don't have further context in which to put the word, sorry.)


death, #sca 

For SCA oldtimers - it seems Dorothea of Caer-Myrddin has passed on.

Hello! My books have all been re-released with my correct name in ebook and paperback!

💀 BOOKS AND BONE is a surprisingly sweet story of necromancy and secret libraries with ace romance.

🐉 NON-PLAYER CHARACTER is a cosy queer portal fantasy with an autistic protagonist where a TTRPG group are pulled into the world of their game.

🎲 KIN is a TTRPG with flexible, classless character creation and three gameplay modes. And it ties in with NON-PLAYER CHARACTER!
