Beauty-Beast 47: ♪ Thnks fr th Mmrs ♫

Ctirad found that he was smiling at Signy the way he probably hadn’t smiled at a woman in years.  Lifetimes. Generations.  Like a peer.  Like a friend.  It couldn’t last, but he liked the feeling.

Of course, they had more important things than him making friends right now.


The last of the new Beauty-Beast chapters!

Speaking of learning, does anybody know a good websites that teaches how to pronounce or or ?
I don't think I'm up to learning an actual language, but I'd really like to be able to pronounce proper names at least in my head...

I forgot the name of the language learning page with the owl mascot, so I searched "language owl" (without quotation marks).
The first hits were for Web Ontology Language (OWL) , but I did find Duolingo, too.

captain vs captain 

this reminds me of one of my favorite quirks of english, that "captain" and "captain" in the US navy can mean two different things. "captain" is a rank (pay grade O-6) above commander and below rear admiral (lower half). however, "captain" is also a position, referring to anyone who commands a ship.

someone holding the rank of captain may or may not command a ship, and the captain of a ship may or may not hold the rank of captain.

I really need to watch what I do to the thermostat carefully. I was miserable for most of the day because I didn't turn it up high enough after letting in fresh air in the morning.

So my wife's 2yo might have ADD.
Does anyone have links to information on how I can make the kid's life easier?
(Diagnosing information is not what I'm asking for, I leave that to the other parents)

Boosts appreciated.

How easy is it to understand Old English as a native English speaker?
I can only understand it if it's something I'm already familiar with.


oh, it's 4 PM and I forgot to eat lunch. No wonder I feel off...
(Noodles are in the pot now)

I've been stuck in "I want to do a, b, or c; I kinda should and want to do d and e; and I really should do f and g; and picking one is overwhelming so I'm sitting here doing nothing that gets me anywhere" for hours now X(

Small Fry & Broken Wings I

The rubble hit  Charming in the head while he was still trying to stop the blasted wyvern from eating a police officer.  He had managed to get the thing pinned down, a piece of rebar through its neck, but it was still moving. 

He missed fights that weren't in the middle of downtown and didn't involve massive swarms of wyverns.

psa please do not censor slurs or common triggers (e.g. sl*r). on fedi. you're doing more harm than good cause people who do not want to see these words at all can filter these words from their timeline entirely, but that will be bypassed if you censor.

first and last name (25 character max.)

some computer programmers who are employed professionally to write code are a freaking trip.

"yes, your honor. why am I filing to legally change my name? my given name is too long to sign for contactless delivery from DHL. thank you for understanding."

OK, so internet trends this year so far

- Bernie Sanders And His Mittens

Is there something really big (and non-depressing) that I missed?
