Merry Christmas! Completely unrelated to Christmas, I wrote the first article of a series on building a Bluetooth speaker from an old vacuum radio and spare parts:

Posted on Craigslist looking for local Japanese tutors. Got a bite, but they texted me in English, seemed to be ignorant of some of the details in my posting, and wanted $50 deposit for materials. So I suggested we switch to chatting in Japanese and I got 3 poorly google-translated responses out of them before they lost patience 🤣

Je vous envoie

des signaux mais pas d’alarme

trois boucles d’or sans un seul ours

la tasse qui se remplit seule
sans jamais déborder

la lettre enfin trouvée
qui achève les mots croisés

et la fuite rousse de l’écureuil
qui contourne le tronc
apparaît disparaît
mystère évanoui
dans le ciel de feuillage


Salut Mastodon, j'ai un nom de domaine à vendre, à un prix raisonable : Est-ce que tu connais quelqu'un qui serait intéressé ?

day 31: ripe
This lazy cat prefers waiting for the fruit to be ripe than climbing on the tree

day 30: catch
This mouse is making fun of this poor cat. Another (easier to find) reference to an old cartoon.
Not super fond of how this one turned out.

day 29: injured
This odd drawing is a reference to a 80s French TV show for kids. Do you recognize it?

day 28: ride
It's not a well known fact, but cats enjoy riding in the snow just like us!

2019, day 26: dark

I am away from home until the end of the month, with no scanner (and a limited set of pens!), so this drawing and the next ones are going to be published as pictures taken from my phone.

day 23: ancient

Did the Inca venerate cats? Let's say they do, for the sake of this drawing.
