In Which I Continue to Be Terrible at Blogging

Five months.  Yikes.  That’s pretty bad.

A non-exhaustive list of things I’ve been up to:

1) Watching copious amounts of the Great British Bake Off, which is really making me miss things like Jaffa cakes and bakewells.  (Start importing bakewells, America.)

2) Related to 1, attempting to learn how to bake.  My mother is a great cookie-baker, but I’m not sure if I entirely have her knack for it.  I haven’t yet mastered the technique of baking something without getting flour everywhere, but so far, everything I’ve made has at least been edible and fairly tasty.  (Though my bakes probably wouldn’t live up to Paul and Mary’s standards.)

3) Continuing writing stuff.  Another round of edits on the novel manuscript I’m querying around.  Some Exciting Freelance Pathfinder Developments that I’m not sure I can talk about yet.  (But they’re rad.)

4) Re-playing Dishonored before Dishonored 2 comes out.

5) Getting ready to visit MN for a couple of weddings.

6) GMing two Pathfinder games, the Iron Gods AP and a campaign I’ve half-written and half-strung together with modules.

7) Binge-watching Black Sails, because PIRATES.

(8 may or may not be guilt-spiraling about being terrible at blogging.  *cough*)

This Week I’m

Reading Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Planes of Power; The Napoleon of Crime: The Life and Times of Adam Worth, Master Thief by Men MacIntyre

Listening to Coeur de Pirate

Playing Dishonored, Tales of Zestiria

Today’s Miscellaneous Historical Fact In nineteenth century New York, a woman called Gallus Mag was a colorful figure in the criminal underworld of the city, by virtue of owning a notorious saloon called the Hole-in-the-Wall and her habit of biting the ears off uncooperative customers and keeping them in a pickling jar above the bar.

After a disagreement with another woman called Sadie the Goat–so called for her custom of headbutting her mugging victims in the stomach–Gallus Mag bit off Sadie’s ear; when the two eventually reconciled, Mag retrieved the ear from the pickle jar and returned it to Sadie, who subsequently wore it in a locket around her neck.
