Do you have a WordPress blog, and are you being forced into using the Gutenberg blocks, and do you hate it? (If you neither know what I’m talking about nor care, skip this paragraph and the next.) Hugh’s News and Views will actually help you figger out how the dang critters work.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog (If not, see parenthetical phrase above, only just skip this paragraph), WordPress is happy to introduce you to their Ultimate Add-Ons library. I might actually use some of them, some time.
But wait! There’s more! In case you don’t already know, lemme tell you about Project Gutenberg, the great grand-daddy of eBooks! For decades, people have been digitizing public domain books and making them available free for nothin’ at Project Gutenberg. They also have audiobooks. You can use it for free, you can donate, or you can participate in adding to the library. Kewl!
Nails. Gawd. Sometimes I just cannot get it right. I had a very clear idea of what I wanted my nails to look like, and it totally didn’t work out. Long story, not telling it, but I used a hella lot of acetone undoing bad jobs. Finally just slapped on some of my beloved Sally Hanson Insta-Dry Silver Stallion (ooooohhh — is anybody else shivering?). I used a couple of different plates for various snowflake designs and Born Pretty’s Pure white stamping polish.
I have, since I took this picture, topped it with a couple of coats of Pop-arazzi’s City Sparkle holo taco. Yes, there is a wrinkle in the polish on my bird finger. It was that kind of session.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a project that does not go well.
