Before you put a dozen emojies between words, imagine how hearing the below text could become tiring, even exhausting, and a cognitive drain on screen reader users.

Hello
It is Friday, noon/early afternoon, and I am going back to bed because I'm ill

A thunderstorm passed through, and I used that time of unplugged router and stuff to get my daily writing done.
Yay laptop!

(gestures to this sold-out indie pickle palette)

i gotta say that i'd switch the names for 'dill pickles' and 'tickle my pickle' because if you're including that pink you may as well go all the way, but i don't hate the color story!

also, i'm too cishet to make any jokes, but given i now know the thing about transfeminine people hankering for pickles thanks to spironolactone... finally, a palette for transfeminine folks,

Camels once existed in Canada's far north. The Yukon giant camel was an 3.5 million-year-old ancestor of the living domestic camel found today in the deserts of Asia and Africa.

Despite my nervousness at our strange guest, I did my best to make all the usual small-talk, with the usual questions, "So, ah, how long have you been a muse?"

"Oh, quite a while. hundreds of years - I've been part of some real big projects!" She beamed proudly.

"Cool. Any favorites?"

"Oh yes; several in and on churches!"

"Angels and such?"

"No, more like humans without pants in rude poses."

"That's...um, hilarious?"

"Extremely!"

Good morning!
It is Thursday!
For some reason I've been feeling like it's one day later than it actually is for most of the week, so I feel like it's Friday now, but it's actually Thursday.

'k. I have half an hour until I gotta take meds, and afterwards I will want to wind down for bed.
So now I get up, and hang the laundry, and break down some boxes and take them outside for recycling pickup tomorrow

food, question 

I am bad at eating veggies.
I have developed a habit of cooking myself a quick noodle soup from instant broth for supper.
So far I've tried adding carrots and/or broccoli as far as veggies are concerned. I like it when the stuff is not too soft/soggy?
Do you have suggestions for what else I could try?

I follow one or two actual scientists on Twitter, and some of the posts that go round RE job offers or calls for help are really fun.
Just now, paraphrased: We're looking for someone who speaks German, Latin, and is familiar with insect/weevil terminology, because the key we need to compare our specimen with is written in German with Latin descriptions, and google translate does not do entomologist jargon well.
