@thepoliticalcat Thanks so much! The butchery = I’m going to cut it along that line marked by the red yarn to turn it into a cardigan. It’s called “steeking.” I’ve done it once before, & it’s fun but also terrifying.

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.

@msquebanh They’re very pretty birds. I saw one a few days ago on the same tree the Pileated was on.

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.

A completed double layer mitten seen end-on with the cuff opened to show the grey interior mitten.

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.

@glightly Sticky lock hack - if you have chain lube, squirt some into the mechanism, wait a few minutes & try again. Works beautifully, can do it periodically as preventative, too.

Lizbon,
@Lizbon@writing.exchange avatar

@glightly Any ordinary petroleum-based (i.e. not wax lube) kind works. WD-40 would also get it unstuck if you have that. Or 3-in-1 oil, sewing machine oil, any light machine oil. Just a couple drops right into the hole where the key goes, let it sit a while to penetrate. Then try key again.

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

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.

I'm upset at my youngest brother, who just told me he doesn't want to get 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.

Lizbon,
@Lizbon@writing.exchange avatar

@msquebanh 🙄ugh, I’m sorry you’re having to deal with that. Here’s some anecdotal evidence for him: everyone in my family has gotten this booster & not one of us had any unusual side effects. I had, in fact, no side effects at all other than a sore arm that evening.

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.
