day 7 (bah to missing midnight for posting, but I did finish making it prior to that): 49 Cats in a Rain Cask

No post on Saturday thanks to an all-day workathon, but I did two squarchy things on Thursday so I'm still on track. Today's fiddling is a ditty I'm calling "All Fours", to cut down on confusion with colliding 'nyms in this musical classification.

day ... four. Right. March forth into Squarch! (I'm a bit loopy from work still.) This is a ditty that just rolls along in no hurry, or that's how I play it anyway: Moonlight

(It's got two and a half parts, so I'm going kinda light on "squar" and not as light on "ish" today.)

Wait, it's day 3, isn't it? Man. I just can not count days right now. Today is Thursday, March 732nd, 2020. Only off by a bit!

day 2: focaccia straight out of a pan I got just for Squarch. Gonna try thick pizza soon.

day 2: Kansas City Rag (not from Kansas City, as far as I know; also not a rag).

A bad oulipo gag:

Q: What do you call oulipo, but only for a day, in Spanish, and swapping "I" for that glyph this spot prohibits?

A: No-I día.

I'm making squar-ish fiddling mp3s again for . Today's ditty is "Rosco":

Howdy to @alikins, who I know through @sculpin! If you wanna know how to play kalimbazooka, that's who to ask.

Annum novum faustum vobis!

("Happy" isn't oulipo-compliant in Latin, but a happy solar orbit to you all, too.)

That's.... I don't know, a snail/rabbit hybrid? A snabbit?

I don't work with fiscal stuff. At all. So why is it my job to craft and submit a doc about how our division plans to comply with an upcoming ginormous shift in how institutional fiscal things work?

(apart) Wit, if 'tis thy will, grant much good fooling!
Wits, that think to hold thy favor, do oft
turn out fools; and I, that plainly lack thy favor, may
pass for smart: for "What says Quinapalus?
"A witty fool doth outdo a foolish wit."

Oh! Or possibly this will work, and I don't gotta autodidact any 3D skills:

Who do I know with 3D-printing chops? I got a small & not too fiddly thing I wanna fab, but I don't know how to CAD. Happy to pay for consulting. If you got a contact, plz ping @rjl20 (so our glyph limit won't conflict with communication).

Followup: our chooks don't dig swinging. I might hafta try bribing with tasty grubs or summat.

Built out our chooks' roaming capacity today, doubling prior land availability. Also bought a swing toy for a chook to swing on. I don't knows if chooks dig swinging, but I'll find out.

Rabbit rabbit rabbit! (It's April, finally. Was it March for a full circumsolar rotation?)
