I'm so excited about my upcoming trip to Japan. I should be packing but instead I'm drawing ๐Ÿ˜Š

The problem with long-wearing gel polish is the polish still looks good after the growth gaps start being too obvious

Broke the team uniform streak - Elise is elegant in black today but I am wearing llamas! ๐Ÿ˜€

* I would have been delightfully surprised if we'd matched today

My junior dev had to deal with an annoying, buggy, poorly documented framework today so I gave her this squishy pig to help her get through it. (Also wrote a sample program for her showing how to use the framework which I suspect was the more useful aid, but nowhere near as satisfying)

๐Ÿ™ ooh, the present I bought myself from Etsy arrived! ๐Ÿ™

Dinner with family. Even though I say very little at these events it's always lovely to see my grandad

On this day 15 years ago I was in Guatemala. Definitely time to plan another long holiday

Argh Wednesdays are always a bit frantic with last minute bug fixes

But I have dice and in a few more hours I will be escaping with colleagues because apparently I play D&D now

Sure duolingo, why not learn korean. It's not like there are a bunch of other languages I'm supposed to be practicing already

Another artefact from my garage last night - handpainted computer case from my youth

Finally the weather is cool enough to wear velvet in Brisbane, gotta make the most of it

As I walked back across the Kurilpa to my car at QPAC after the stargazing world record event tonight, I passed the William Jolly lit up like the fighting dragon nebula, a group of people partying along with a jazzy live band covering Daft Punk outside GOMA, and many runners on the boardwalk next to the mangroves participating in the Darkness to Daylight challenge to raise money for domestic violence prevention. Sometimes this little town feels very lively

Some years ago I tried Hello Fresh but quit after a couple of months because literally every vegetarian meal contained either rocket or feta (I'm not a big fan of either). They offered me a free meal box to try to lure me back.... why am I not surprised?

Someday I might embroider one of the mandalas I draw

Why I've always had difficulty eating meat: when I was a kid, animals were my only friends (*excluding imaginary)

The Camponotus ladies are settling into their new 3d printed home

Visited my parents today. My Dad gave me a Camponotus queen and workers so I'll need to 3D print a formicarium for them.

I wore my favourite shirt from when I was a teenager today so it's only appropriate that I made vege "burritos" for dinner (I used to live on these, and they are really just a salad wrapped in a tortilla with a bit of refried beans for flavour).

Water bill today reminded me how I'm still mildly annoyed about the waste of water when my housemate left the hose running for a whole day last month
