I made this chocolate cake (recipe here: https://itdoesnttastelikechicken.com/the-ultimate-vegan-chocolate-cake/)
it is really really filling. I ate one piece and then I felt like I could not eat anything for 3 days again.
luckily now, 2 hours later, the feeling has finally passed.
and it is going to be a vegan chocolate cake with a chocolate frosting. I'm going to make the almond milk myself because of #plasticfreejuly and blah, but I did get a vegan margarine with a aluminium foil wrapping. Because Alsan is the best stuff, and it tastes really good.
I have a craving for sweet stuff and I'm a baker, so... yeah. I'm baking.
my little diary (mention of horse sports)
i was at the recycling facility of my city and the throwing away of an old ceramic wash basin cost 5€.
I had gotten this basin for free and I had meant to install it in place of my current one, but tbh I will never ever get around to do it.
on my way back I found out that the world championship of icelandic horses is held in berlin, I would really like to go.. but I'm only here on the last day and admission costs 65-85€.
some masto germans are having a CW meta discussion right now, and it reminded me of:
I joined the mod team on this instance, but that doesn't make me perfect when it comes to my own toots.
if you see stuff that I should have CW'd or where I forgot to post replies to long threads unlisted, or other fails to follow our etiquette, if you want: please absolutely do tell me that it sucks! it will help me do better.
uhm, I missed participating in #plasticfreejuly
well, not too bad, because I've been making a #plasticfree effort since last november or so. habits are in place and I just missed an opportunity to brag around on the internet about it 😂
on the other hand those online events keep one motivated and make keeping up the work more fun.
@pixelfed in case you all are not ignoring it and I just don't see anyone talking on pixelfed's github about it, please forgive me, I'm just trying to use it and I don't know anything about github and how the development process works.
@pixelfed hey, I have no github profile and a question.
I was on pixelfed's github page and there seems to be no open issue about pixelfed not federating with other pixelfed instances.
so - is this fixed? is it just me?
I'm @distelfliege and I want to follow people on pixelfed.de - how do I do this from pixelfed.social? the search box doesnt find anyone. what should I type in there exactly?
and if it's not fixed, why is everyone ignoring this?
trans information request, boosts appreciated
does anyone have recommendations for bite-sized (ie no more than a few pages) leaflet/booklet that explains being transgender (in a queer-positive and enby-inclusive manner)
target audience is middle age cis person with internalised binary gender roles, open-minded and willing to understand but saying bullshit like "we're all 50% male and 50% female" while using binary pronouns including for cats
must be clear and easy to follow
I spent 1.5 hours at the Schlesi station and was doing #tourdefleece Spinning. For the last hour a group of guys with a sound system and Arabic music entertained everyone. Some were entertained too much. And too drunk. The people from the fast food booth allowed me to retreat into their shop a bit and were super nice.
On my bike ride home now!
identity, coming out, and such
@distel Yeah, there's a big difference in my mind between "I don't need labels" (which is a lovely thing a few of my friends feel about themselves) and "You shouldn't need labels" which is frankly abusive manipulation and erasure.
identity, coming out, and such
of course, as defiant as this sounds, things are more complicated in real life.
friends mean well, and they have real problems grasping paradox and confusing identities, and they need to chew on stuff for a bit before they can accept it. sure.
and I'm not angry at them personally.
but when it comes down to standing by yourself and your weird labels, or make yourself fit into a more accepted box, it's very powerful to heart the weird labels.
