Hug somebody who loves me.🎵

I'd planned to have this coloured by today, but real life got in the way.
If anybody would like to colour the lineart, go ahead, just drop me a line so I can have a look if you post it.

It's May still, but today is Pride in my strange and wonderful little town! See the making of this proud bunny:

Nereid gloves for #MerMay! I'm so pleased that the mirrored lace pattern turned out okay on the second glove, phew!

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');

OK, I had three boxes of clothes put aside for scraps, mostly T-shirts, but also some other stuff.
- 3 T-shirts I'd put there because they were colours I don't wear anymore, and were not damaged, so I'll put them with the stuff to donate.
- 2 I could not find holes on, so those'll go back to the wearable clothes.
- 4 only had one underarm hole each, so I hand-mended those.
- The rest I sorted a bit and folded neatly, and now I have one and a half boxes of clothes, and one empty box.

for :
Is there a good print-on-demand shop for offering stickers?
It should have die-cut as an option, not only rectangles and other fixed shapes/sizes, and have good quality.
I know Redbubble offers die-cut stickers, but the automatic cut edge is kinda awkward, and I have heard bad things about the general quality

The bad news is that I'm not feeling the whole cooking and eating thing.
Been subsisting on snackfood...

Yes, I did get grocery shopping done early.
I also packed a recent purchase that did not work and took it to the post office to send back, did a small load of laundry, and hung the damp laundry to dry.
Then I wiped down my laundry boxes and the top of the washing machine, which had collected a lot of dust, and pulled a bunch of stufff that had fallen *behind* the washing machine out.
In between I got some general tidying done.

I have two boxes of old, cheap t-shirts with holes around the hem or collar, or sometimes under the arms.
Should I keep them to practice sewing on, maybe turn some into sleeveless tops if I can figure out how, or should I toss them?

Are you using Mastodon through a computer?

Do you wish there was a multi-column TweetDeck-style interface?

There is! It's called the "advanced web interface" and you can activate it any time you want. It lets you add many specialised columns, subscribe to hashtags and all kinds of stuff suited to large wide displays.

Log into the website, go to Preferences > Enable Advanced Web Interface, tick the box and click "Save Changes".

(To restore the default single column interface, do the same thing but untick the box instead.)

This used to be the default interface on Mastodon, and very old articles about the platform will have screenshots of the multicolumn interface.

Today's the day for #Tradescantia zebrina #flowers apparently! Four different cultivars are going off at once - 'Little Hill', 'Purpusii', 'Purple Joy', and 'Dark Desire'.

The last two actually might be names for the same thing, I hoped that the flowers might help distinguish them but... there's so little flower variation even between definitely-different cultivars of zebrina 😬

Hi hi Mr. Otter, who now has a bigger head and is better in proportion to the girl.

Plus was searching for otter paw references and found this:

I bought a vacuum cleaner. Looks just like your ordinary vacuum cleaner, but it can be controlled via buttons in the handle. How? There's no cabling inside the hose. Instead it's a 2.4 GHz radio connection.

My vacuum cleaner supports AES encryption!

Liebe Mit-Mammuts!

Ich habe hier ganz dringend Pferdegeschirr (Zaumzeug) abzugeben. Der Eigentümer musste nach über 50 Jahren aus Altersgründen die Arbeit mit den Tieren einstellen und kommt nicht darüber hinweg, wenn das Zeug nicht verschwindet.

Auf div, Kleinanzeigen habe ich gesehen, das so etwas auch ganz viel als Deko gesucht wird. Einiges ist dafür sicher zu gebrauchen, da fast neu.

Bitte trötet das mal ganz dolle weiter und weiter und weiter.…!

I couldn't do any painting last night but I couldn't let the beautiful plump bird from yesterday's prompt go unpainted. Just shy of two hours went into this one.

that there are 40-60 tornados each year in Germany.
I guess most are smaller and/or happen somewhere not as densely populated as the two reported yesterday.
