Spent the last several days designing a potions book for a Halloween party.

Using Affinity Publisher Beta to layout invitations and potion booklets. It’s good to be working in layout again after so many years away, losing hours in a project, although I’m not sure my right arm agrees.

Making invitations for our ⚡️HP⚡️Potions Class Halloween Party. @BrianEnigma

I forgot to share this photo that @christinerose took of me swimming among the EULAs at .

📱 The new iPhone Xs: is it pronounced “excess” or “tennis?”

I will have a large number of pins with me to hand out to anyone at who’d like one. I’ll also see if I can leave a few strategic caches out for folks that might want to avoid human contact in acquiring one.

Making Pumpkin Juice, just as any normal adult would on a Tuesday afternoon.

Trying to remember how to use git in the command prompt and dusting the mental cobwebs off my limited coding knowledge for a Harry Potter Halloween Party project.

In Iceland, there was volcanic event in 2010 where there was ash covering a glacier “many meters thick.” It was black for a whole year and there was a huge ash cloud.

It affected many farmers and their animals, many who had a fatal case of black lung because of all the ash.


Hopefully tonight is the night I’m destined to see the Northern Lights for the first time.

Fingers crossed!

Last year during Iceland’s ice cream festival, where there’s often new flavors introduced, they had a special new ice cream made from human breast milk.

People were livid.


....because it’s totally fine to drink/eat milk from other species, taking it from their own children, but drinking/eating milk from our own species is disgusting!

Interesting observations about Iceland:

1. Impossible to get decaf espresso or even decaf coffee
2. 60s, 70s, and 80s music is playing everywhere. The most recent song I heard was Alanis Morissette from the mid 90s
3. There are no Starbucks!! (This should’ve been at #1!!)

Happiness is sharing a GitHub Harry Potter project with my brilliant partner @BrianEnigma. He's such an inspiration. 💜

Oh, you know — just making nonsensical magickal sigils on the laser cutter. Just normal stuff that normal human adults often do, honestly.
