Max's tossball cards!

Those of you who've been reading Bad Trip may remember that I really really have been wanting some Max DeSoto tossball cards. so I commissioned @quasarden to make some for me! These are the cards mentioned (a lot) in Bad Trip, and now, finally, they exist!

I'm extremely happy with these, and of course these will get printed to go into the TOW journal as well. Thank you @quasarden for such good work! And making him such a handsome devil :)

Rowan art by @pidgeydraws

This was originally supposed to be a Christmas present from [profile] seidooryuu to me, but delays etc on the artist's end. Anyway: it has finally finished! Art commission by [profile] pidgeydraws.

Rowan Dane from Bad Trip, all out of f***s (or spoons) to give.

Writing/posting status

Needless to say, with the recent massive power outages etc, my writing/posting has kinda gone out the window. I'm going to post what I have left for Fluffy February, and get through the Bad Trip posts, but I'm not going to hold to a timetable or finish the rest of the FF writing. What's done is done.

I can safely say that I do not see "snow day" as a happy fluffy prompt, after living through this week. :P

Oh, and also: Texas gets 20% of its power from wind turbines. Almost all of those have frozen up/shut down because of the extreme cold. The offshore platforms are also shutting down from cold. So the total amount of energy available has dropped dramatically, just when everyone's trying to keep warm.

There are rolling and nonrolling blackouts, with in many places no indication when it will come back on. Gas (for heating) prices are skyrocketing. Gas bills will be high next month, but we'll face that when we come to it.

So far, we still have power as I type this, but... who knows? The lemon tree is still toasty (comparatively; it got up to 21 today outside, 40s in the lemon bubble) but if we lose power, it'll equalize to outside temps within 4-5 hours.

Wild birds are hitting the feeders hard, no surprise there, we're keeping them as topped as we can.

Ice under snow, mostly, because it melted first last night before the weather really buckled down to business.
