Prompt: bulk. That leads me to bulkhead. I looked at a lot of pictures of bulkheads on memory alpha. I looked at a lot of pictures of bulkheads for boats on the internet. I’m still not sure what a bulkhead is.
My first impulse was to not participate this year. I felt I didn’t have any ideas.
Then your brain starts working on it in the background.
“You could do this for Inktober,” your brain says. “Or you could do this.” Then your brain says, “Of course! This is what you should do.” And your brain is right, so then you have no choice but to do it.
Then you pick up the pencil and get it moving. Just drawing simple shapes and lines suggests ideas.
Before I know I know it, I’m doing actual research to help ignite more more ideas, and I’m off and running.
I’ll talk more about the research and all the prep work I’m doing in September to prepare for Inktober so that next month, all I have to do is ink.
Little Guy likes to grab a few bowls or pots and pans and some ingredients and ‘cook’ at the kitchen table. (Last time he did this, he said, ‘I need to cook this now, and slid the pan underneath the table, just like putting it in the oven.)
Saturday he made oatmeal soup. in the sketch above he’s getting ready to test it. he’s way more optimistic than i was about his dish.
Here’s the recipe, near as I could tell:
3 bowls of water (half full)
lots of cinnamon/sugar
lots of red sprinkles
1/4 cup of uncooked oatmeal (he calls them oatmeal seeds)
(6) grapes. 2 per bowl
Fill your bowls halfway with water.
Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar generously into each bowl.
After sampling the sprinkles, add a generous portion to each bowl. You may not have added enough. After sampling sprinkles again, be sure to add more to your bowls.
Plop two grapes in each bowl. Each grape should plop with a little splash. Splash is important. Keep adding grapes until you get a satisfying splash.
I think he and I both agreed that pretending to eat it was more delicious than actually eating it.
right before bed i’ve been getting a few minutes of gameplay on an online emulator
i really should be doing other things, but there’s something about the zelda games celebration of exploration that i must be craving now
the opening of the game is fantastic. it takes place in the rain – so moody. i wish there was more weather in video games. and movies. more weather in everything really
my only complaint is the enemies. wish i could remove them all from the game. i’d just wander hyrule collecting treasure, discovering hidden passages, and solving puzzles. (i’d only draw my sword to mow down bushes)
