Or Sunday, rather. We bought an upright planter thingy and Toby painted it with water sealant and then put it together for me yesterday. Then Sunday morning we hit the shops and bought a couple of extra tall pots, plus dirt, rocks for drainage, and seedlings, then I spent the day getting that all set up.

Thinking of putting together a playlist for the Wiscon Vid Party on morally ambiguous and ambitious women. Anyone have recs for vids or AMVs that showcase power-hungry women? POC characters or characters from games or anime preferred. I'd especially love something on Kuvira from Legend of Korra, Lady Eboshi from Princess Mononoke or Kushana from Nausicaa.

Also, I am feeling old... where does one go to look for vids nowadays? I did find a fair amount of Kuvira vids on YouTube, but nothing I liked so far, and's search is incredibly frustrating.

Currently on the list: [personal profile] feedingonwind's A New Day (Mariah, Luke Cage), [personal profile] shati's Hope on Fire (Mishil, Queen Seondeok), [personal profile] starlady's Shuang Nu (Wu Zetian, Detective Dee).

...that we have baby woodpeckers because I spent several hours outside
today (pics in a bit) and Lord and Lady Downey kept trading off shifts. One
would fly off for a while, then come back and call, at which time the other
one would emerge from the hole and fly off. The first one would then go
down in the hole. I couldn't quite tell if the arriving one was carrying an
insect or not.

The internet tells me fledglings leave the nest in about a month, so we're
planning on taking off some of the dead limbs that look like they might
fall in the future at that time. Leaving the one with the nest hole, of

There's a dove sitting on the chimney, cooing. The chimney is amplifying
the coos and making them sound rather apocalyptic.

Our Prime Minister, Theresa May, has called a snap general election for June 8. Because we don't have enough shitty politics going on as it is.

She's picked that date because her party (the Conservatives) are so far ahead in the polls that she thinks they are unassailable and the opposition (Labour) are in what you might kindly call disarray largely (IMO) because the Blairite right of the party are hell bent on undermining the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn. From this you might guess (correctly) that I loathe Blair and his followers with a deep, poisonous loathing.

We can but wait to find out what happens.

This video is short (15 sec) and interesting and appropriate for non-gamers as well as gamers. And does not contain any Mass Effect: Andromeda spoilers.

We finished ME:A last night, after having not been able to play for 4 days due to friends and family over for the Easter weekend. This was the most memorable moment.

Are there any apps for posting to Dreamwidth? Coordinating replies on my phone is a pain - it's going to be hard to get back into posting if I can't manage my replies better.
