Hey, it's , and for once I look fine!

Here are two screenshots from a video I just made for my sign language course. There I'm explaining to you where in the Netherlands is .

Could anyone help me with ?

I need to make a pdf with a title page that looks like this. It has custom content, the document title is centered and the custom content is in the lower right corner.

My cat had one (1) look at my Mastodon feed, and now they have this empty stare...

I haven't dressed up this much for over a month now. I even have a new shirt on!

We had planned to go to buy new office chairs today, but now my spouse is too tired to go, so I sit dressed up here at home.
