Minuscula Sed Ferox
(Icon Art by Lindsay Small-Butera)
Man, I don’t think I’ll ever understand why in art in japanese media, you can have a big fat cock on display as long as the sulcus and corona are censored.
Not that I’m COMPLAINING, mind, I just think it’s a bit pointless.
Man, today just wore me out so badly. Christmas music in the store giving me a headache. Customers either attempting fraudulent returns or just chewing us out for shits and giggles. District manager coming in and whipping everyone into a panic with his Type A bullshit.
It’s really hard out there.
Maybe if I had a cat I wouldn’t be as depressed.

I know I shouldn’t be so down on myself, but I’m no Tilda Swinton and it’s DIFFICULT.
I would lose my own ass if it weren’t so goddamn wide and attached to my hips.
DISREGARD PREVIOUS REPORTED COLLAPSE OF HARD DRIVE, IT STILL BOOTS, PROBLEM WAS ACTUALLY I AM AN IDIOT ABOUT BIOS SETTINGS
I’m still gonna try and pry a new rig out of my parents for Xmas though, ahyuk.
About a week ago, I started experiencing bizarre timeskips in my Windows clock, on the order of skipping ahead 40 to 50 YEARS at a time on bootups. A little research revealed that this was likely a result of my motherboard’s internal battery being on its last legs. Sure enough, tonight on bootup, I got pushed into the BIOS because the clock had reverted to midnight, likely the final knell of the MOBO battery. However, in an unforseen twist of fate, after I reset the internal clock, the Hard Drive also refused to boot, giving me a “missing ntldr” message. Restarting and hopping into the BIOS again revealed the dark truth: the hard drive is no longer being detected. Perhaps it also died out of anguish at the thought of its imminent replacement. Whatever the case, rest in pieces, Wintermute build.
Now in the past, a situation like this would have moved me to tears of panic, but now it’s only an inconvenience. Fortunately, I backed up everything on my terabyte external HDD when the timeskips first started. In total, I think I only lost ONE piece of art in progress, and it was nothing that I mourn. In terms of system collapses, this is a best case scenario: the only issue that lies ahead is the tedium of setting up a new boot on the second hard drive that I never used, possibly to be rolled into the next build, maybe not. Or I could just say fuckit and play on my laptop for a while, who knows.
Whatever the case, this isn’t a catastrophic issue, just an annoying one, and luckily I was well prepared for it. Now it’s just a matter of buying a new system, and hopefully my family will be able to help out since Xmas is on the way. I’ll try to keep everyone updated.
