dream, gender +
dreamed last night that I was working in like a fancy little boutique shop and helping a young hipster couple find some clothes. at some point they said something that made me startled and their response to my stammering was "well you're a girl, right?". i looked down, and realized i was at least in androgynous mode, if not girl mode, and they were treating me like i was presenting instead of as a soft guy. it made me wake up full of pride and joy
selfies eye contact, literally me being carly rae jepsen
Crystal Rae Jepsen
Another long day at the posting factory, and I roll up to the water cooler to chat with my friend @Aleums. He says "have you signed this?", and hands me a folded gray card. Written on the outside it says "cw: selfie ec", and on the inside is a very nice picture of a person from the timeline and the note "boosts appreciated". I scan the document but a lot of people have signed it already. "Beautiful 😍" says one, and "cuuuuute ✨" says another.
Holy shit lmao
When your family says they're getting together for Christmas in 2020:
We live in a society
I think it's so telling what kind of world we've built for ourselves, the way we handle missteps.
I pay my phone bill completely and on time for literal years, and one month I across $12 in charges that I don't pay til later. So obviously my phone service needs to be shut off until that $12 is placed in their account. Absolutely no regard for the context of my relationship with them.
Whenever a system or authority tells me they "treat everyone the same" I get fuckin nervous.
This is my Rubik's cube style puzzle collection. Only my fastest standard Rubik's cube is missing because I forgot it at work. 10 Rubik's cubes and 43 overall (not including the one coming in the mail I bought today). Kitty for scale, plus some close ups of interesting ones. At the bottom of the image is my stack mat and timer, which are what the pros use to time a solve. My average is 24 seconds, and my best is 13.77!
Mental health, capitalism, neg
Capitalism is garbage in part because it doesn't allow people time to deal with things like grieving. At the best of times, you can take time off for mental health, but then you get to deal with the stress of taking time off plus whatever you took time off for In the first place, and that is dumb as hell.
Anyone only kinda paying attention to how OR is handling this will probably feel the need to clamp down on their socializing again. OR and specifically Mult. Co. are recording spikes in "untraceable" cases.
They refuse to restrict, trace, or enforce screening for bars and restaurants. Don't go inside a bar or restaurant. Try not to interact with any at all if possible.
But don't get suspicious of each other and shut down what little socialization you've managed to safely rebuild.
