Social Media Challenges and Other Fun Stuff

Social Media Challenges:

I am still having issues with my social media platform. I basically want my Facebook author page and my personal Facebook profile to be completely separate.

Currently, my Wordpress blogs are posting to my Facebook author page. I like this.

It seems my Twitter and my personal Facebook profile became linked once again and all my public posts were being tweeted. Again. I unlinked the two and revoked the Facebook app's access to my Twitter account.

I have set up Wordpress to publish to both my Facebook author page and my Twitter account. I'm hoping this resolves the issue and doesn't do something wonky like double tweet/post. I guess I'll know what it does after I post this.

At some point, I will want to get more traffic going to my Facebook author page, but I think that is something to work on once these integration bugs are worked out.

Other Fun Stuff:

I took in a little piece of Doors Open Ottawa today. The Canada Science & Technology Museum portion was just okay. The tours were at inconvenient times and there wasn't a lot you could see if you didn't join a tour. At least the parking for that was free.

I went to the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum with some friends and got licked by a cow. That was more enjoyable than the other visit, though it was odd that the food museum did not sell food unless you can count vending machines. I am now sunburned as the museum involves walking around in the sun.

Cows have rougher tongues than cats do.

I hope that cow doesn't get a taste for human flesh... it started trying to nibble on me.

After the foodless food museum I dropped by a Bridgehead to get a vegan spelt cookie because they are like a meal and combined with the vending machine chips I had previously, I figure I had lunch covered enough for my next stop.

My next stop was the Ottawa Small Press Fair where I bought more books I need to find time to read, saw some fun writers I met at On The Brink, and met another Sci-Fi author that is encouraging me to come hang out at this group where they read each other's works in progress and stuff like that. Sounds like a good idea to me :)

The community centre caught fire while I was there in the most unlikely place: the pool. Apparently that happens.

I took a bit of a break to grab an actual meal, slather aloe on my shoulders, and then headed over to J.A. Dulude Arena to watch some roller derby.

A busy day followed by mundane things like dishes, but perhaps I'll bake some sugar-free, grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free ginger cookies.

First, more aloe. Ouchie.

Ciao

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
