My giveaway was inundated with bots, but I spent over an hour weeding them out and then generated a winner. They chose the gift card, and it's sent and received! I'm going to have to think of a different way to do this for the future. Congratulates to Amber P.! Graphic by Midjourney AI.
So I'm doing a giveaway for my niche market in their facebook group, and it was going along nicely. Then in a matter of two hours I went from ~100 entries to over 3000, all of the unconfirmed emails that end in icloud with EXACTLY 27 items done off of the way to get extra … Continue reading Bots Crashed My Giveaway
It's Black Friday, and while I don't shop on Black Friday, I do shop on Cyber Monday for online deals. I'll be hosting a take over this weekend at Reverse Harem Readers on Facebook - there will be prizes! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Image is from Midjourney AI.
So, I'm using ElevenLabs and a training of my voice to turn Orphan Lost into an audiobook. I tested this for them before, and now I tried their project function which was... a disaster with strange mispronunciations and all sorts of weird. So, now I'm doing it the hard way by hand, but it's coming … Continue reading Turning Orphan Lost into an Audiobook
So on Friday, we brought Tundra to the vet because he wasn't doing great, and I'm like 'he's an old boy' and was feeling bad for him. They started him on a new pain med. And then this jerk proved he still has plenty of vinegar and spite inside of him and that he feels … Continue reading Old Dog Indeed – Bad for My Heart!
Tundra is 13 as of October 10th, and he's starting to get a bit gimpy. He groans and grumps when he has to move, and his back legs aren't as strong as they used to be. So we brought him to the vet, because his current pain med wasn't enough. They have him on carprofen … Continue reading Tundra’s Getting to Be an Old Boy
I'm participating (AGAIN!) in NaNoWriMo, and I'm running a little behind, but not more than two day's words or so. This is my 13th NaNoWriMo, believe it or not, and I've only lost 2 since I started. What am I writing? Captured Pawn! Why am I behind? My outline wasn't good enough! Do I think … Continue reading A Little Behind on NaNoWriMo
They found me on reddit on a thread about medications and Mark Cuban's pharmacy - my main psych medication used to be $15,000 out of pocket for a three month supply. The same medication, as a generic, at Mark Cuban's is $39 for a three month supply. Here's the article in question: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-doctor-lowering-drug-prices-for-1-million-patients-with-help-from-mark-cuban-sam-altman-and-martin-shkreli-5e72d77a And for … Continue reading I’m Mentioned in this Article!
I went out to change the water for the chickens at dusk, and they'd already gone to bed. And what did I find? FOUR CHICKENS SLEEPING ON TOP OF THEIR COOP. Not IN their coop like intended. On top of it. **facepalm** Image from Midjourney AI because I couldn't get a clear photo of the … Continue reading My Chickens Are Idiots
I got a vinyl sticker this week of a hedgehog with a note that says 'free hugs!'. I find this hilarious because my husband teases that I'm a hedgehog, and I LOVE hugs. So I left it on his computer keyboard. When I came back to my computer I found this: I cracked up. Hedgehog … Continue reading My Husband Has THE Best Sense of Humor
