I've started the second to last semester🤞of my masters program, and I've only got two classes...

One is basically a group project internship for an awesome local org doing community outreach research.

The other is writing the first draft of my thesis.

I will be here even more sporadically than usual, so apologies in advance for slow replies or missing important stuff. Stay cool, wear a mask, be excellent to each other. 💜

If you pardon, we will mend 🙏🏻
And, as I'm an honest Puck :moomin_hmm:
If we have unearned luck :fingerguns:
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue :yell2:
We will make amends ere long :lemon_dog:
Else the Puck a liar call :moomin_mad:
So, good night unto you all :space:
Give me your hands, if we be friends :blobaww:
And Robin shall restore amends :snufkin_aww:

and others - do you want a SCOBY? My hotel is getting full, and I think they would appreciate more use than I give them. These are for jun, which is like kombucha but with green tea and honey, instead of black tea and sugar. I think they can be adapted, tho.

Happy to mail anywhere in the continental US, or elsewhere if you know it's allowed.

well that didn't work the way I'd planned... I don't have my follow or block lists, or any of my old posts.

Technology is a problem this week, and I just don't have the spoons to deal with it.

plz follow me again if you were before. sorry. 💜

Hey if I have any followers from kolektiva.social, you should really be putting pressure on your admins to handle pedophilia apologetics on your instance. This shit is unacceptable

this impostor syndrome stuff is also a diversion. rather than saying "hey, wait a minute, it's wrong that in some tech fields you do maybe 3 hours of work for a $130k salary"

you are tricked into going "oh no, I'm an Insufficient Person for not glrinding code iterally every moment of my 8 hour day, better invent or find more work to do that's outside of my deadlines"

Reviewing the calendar I see that this coming Sunday is Stanislov Petrov Day. There are many famous military figures responsible for countless deaths. Petrov is a lesser known military figure responsible for preventing countless deaths by preventing the start of a nuclear war.

You know what I want, I want a better option when some site says, "to access this file we need to see and download your entire address book". I want more than "yes" or "no". I want "lie to it." Give it an address book full of noise. Tell Dropbox I only know one person, but he's the Pope."

I've been working on this for three months and it's finally done. 78 pages on the history of leather, sluts, and families at US Prides, from 1965 to 1995. Includes background on Pride as a polyvocal celebration and leather as a queer subculture; multifarious sexual and gender expression at Pride; the Lesbian Sex Wars; reaction from the right; and the interplay of radical and normalizing forces within LGBTQ activism.

Novelty kitchen appliance idea via the husband :

It looks like a lock box but is actually a microwave... It's your Microwave Safe!

Use the combination lock dial to set the time.

... all I ask is a 10% cut from whomever gets this to market first.

daily reminder that the phrase "carbon footprint" was created by BP in an ad campaign in order to try to shift the blame from themselves onto individual consumers and stifle any collective action against the fossil fuels industry.
