code and notes for the SFPC Code Societies workshop that I wrapped up last night, entitled "Computational exploration of magical and divinatory language" https://github.com/aparrish/comexmadivla including automated random word squares, magic words through noise applied to phonetic hidden states, oracle card vectorization, tarot t-SNE, etc.

whenever i open the linen closet* shumai is RIGHT there to rush in and lie down among the hand towels and tablecloths
* before you think "ooh la la a linen closet allison is so fancy shmancy," this is also the closet where all the old video game consoles are stored. and some big pans for cooking turkeys. and the toilet paper and all my old CDs. also the only reason i'm looking for sheets is that one or more cats threw up on my bed while i was away
