@ariadne I finally cracked and bought myself one of those 150cm geese. They're quite intimidatingly-large, aren't they? And now AliExpress has smelt blood and is recommending a 190cm duck…

So just eight days after placing my first trial AliExpress order, it has touched down in Liège, 30km from the Dutch border. I wonder if PostNL's usual blithering incompetence means it still won't arrive until the original mid-July estimate.

(It's a 1.6m long goose, and thanks to @ariadne for the tip-off.)

Since the local authority has dug out a tin of rainbow paint in its usual lacklustre tokenism to remind me that it's nearly June again, I need to ask, when are Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath and Envy Months?

If you upgrade every time there's a new release, it is a huge headache.

If you don't upgrade every time there's a new release, it's a much worse headache.

The upgrades will continue until morale improves.

I had been wondering how I'd drum up the enthusiasm to clean the kitchen, repot some plants, pair my socks, and organise my curries in alphabetical order, but fortunately my VAT return was due today.
