I'm playing through Link's Awakening in Japanese for reading practice... it's going slowly. :D

てい! 人のタンスをかってに……そんなこと どこで 覚えただ

Can anyone help me with a super literal translation of the second sentence... をかってに particularly.

I'm reading this as "Hey! Going through other people's dressers as you please... Where did you learn such a thing?"

Finished a really intense and anxiety-inducing track for my band blood and dust yesterday

Seeing the auto-bilge light when I got inside was such a surprise. I ran the engine for a bit to charge the batteries.

Took off some of the old decal on the back of the boat while I waited... still need to come up with a good name though. Something with a bit of cheerful personality.

Victoria's lockdown restrictions now allow us to move up to 25km from home... so finally got to go and check on the boat.

Not only is it safe, but both batteries are still charged!

We can't sail yet, but I had mentally prepared myself for much worse.

Rode back home just before a storm hit. :)

if anyone is interested. I just joined a 64 player game of Neptune's Pride (a slow 4k game that lasts months, but only requires you to log on once or twice a day for couple of minutes essentially). If anyone else wants to join you can do so now. The game will start once 64 players have joined. np.ironhelmet.com/game/6324297

I got 13 x 330 mL bottles out of that... now to wait another 2 weeks. Syphoning (siphoning?) was the most awkward part I think... and I made a mess. But the bottles are sterile and full.

Nuts (tree nuts) have a negative carbon intensity. Not that I needed another reason to eat more nuts TBH, but maybe you do.

Beer is on track! It's been fermenting for 11 days. I just took off the airlock to drop in a vanilla bean pod... it smells like stout! Will put it in the fridge on Saturday then bottle it Monday night. Then another two weeks before tasting.

These are peregrine falcons that nest atop a building in the city in Melbourne... Sarah has been following them via webcam for a few years now. :)
