Turns out the tech cancelled our booking for today and rescheduled for tomorrow morning but may have forgotten to notify anyone about this decision.

Glad I did risk running out to grab a sandwich anyway.

I bet all those refugees in detention are kicking themselves that they never thought to just get their mums to go on Sunrise and point out that they're not criminals. Would have saved so much time.

I just said I'd "reach out" to someone later so I guess I'm lost to the corporate life now. All hope is gone. If anyone needs me I'll be over here having strong opinions about brand awareness and market penetration.

Forgot to bring lunch in today, and I can't leave to go and get something because there's a tech coming to repair a laptop any minute now (allegedly). I also skipped breakfast so I'm quite hungry.

This is the greatest tragedy in the history of human civilisation. Weep for me.

It's interesting. I post my drawings on all kinds of social media sites, but you all here have been way more supportive than any of them. And that includes a couple of supposed 'artist-centric' sites. And sites where I have actual friends and acquaintances as followers.

So, thank you.

I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.

Probably gonna get cancelled for this but I cannot remain silent any longer.

I think cheese is quite a good thing.

the boys are back in town, but not only has the town been irreversibly changed, so too have the boys. the boys can never truly return to town.

Highlights from the William T. Cooper exhibition in Cairns. This one is my absolute favourite. The man was a genius.

Wearing a mask in the office all day means I invariably end up with a pimple on the end of my nose, but on the bright side nobody knows I have a pimple on my nose because I'm wearing a mask all day.

If you don't like shoulder rests and can never get them quite right or comfortable just use a folded cloth and a rubber band. Functional, cheap, comfortable and infinitely adjustable. I'll never use a manufactured shoulder rest again.

hey i'm paige, i've never used social media so I'm excited to try it out for the first time
