I still can’t get over the fact that I can read books for free(!) Libraries, man. So amazing. (Yes, I’ve been doing this my whole life. It just has to keep blowing my mind now & then.)
Today’s excellent birb: a huge, dapper, awkward Pileated Woodpecker on the trunk of the tree directly outside my window.
Working on some extremely crazypants knitting rn. My dad, who has Reynaud’s syndrome (which results in very poor circulation in hands & feet), asked me for some double-layer mittens. #knitting
Trying to get in a good headspace & spoon-space to take a bike ride before the sun goes down today. May add holiday light string to the backpack on my 'bent seat. #BikeTooter
Very easy way to tell the Census Bureau not to go ahead with their proposed changes to how they define disability (tl;dr, it’s bad, & it’ll be the basis for all kinds of eligibility). Details & quick/easy form for public comment here: https://ndrn.salsalabs.org/censusdisability/index.html
Deadline is Tues Dec 19, so do it now pls & thank you
Alright, after all this talk of ketchup/catsup, I need to know:
What are the Top 5 Condiments you have to have in your kitchen?
Starting another Expanse rewatch because I miss Avasarala’s swearing.
Oh you know, just putting the backyard deer on videochat so Mom can see them, too. Usual Fri night stuff.
I'm marching over to confront one racist neighbour now. They launched fireworks into our yard, because they couldn't get cops to arrest me. They tried getting cops to arrest me after I freaked out & yelled at them, after 3 months of non-stop plague spreaders parties & being hella loud.
I am FUCKING DONE WITH THESE WHITE PARTYING PLAGUE SPREADER FUCKING ASSHATS. #Saanich
Me, trying to remember what I walked in here to do:
Some Personal News
I'm upset at my youngest brother, who just told me he doesn't want to get #covid booster because he's heard this newest one has too many side effects. I'm wearing my masks at home & going to protest against my own brother, in shared family home.
I just told him that my domestic protest begins today & will continue until he gets his booster. I am marking my N95 masks with protest words this morning.
I bring up uncomfortable issues here - because I believe we need to discuss them & try to work together on creating better & more inclusive futures.
I remember being frozen & terrified in elementary school, jr high & high school years - whenever they did fire or emergency drills involving really loud alarms going off. In elementary school, I was abandoned during drills & ppl only came to rescue me - after all other kids were back in classes. I was still left alone, terrified, by myself, in dark & empty area. The alarm noises terrified me because I still had war traumas & I ran away from school & hid under a cement deck on first drills.
