@mcmoots - foodie stuff. May contain un-CW'd meat & booze.
@flyingtoaster - the lewd one. Follow requests welcome from anyone (of legal age), if I reject yours it doesn't mean I don't like you.
@mcmoots - all-purpose backup account in case something happens to weirder.earth.
@mcmoots - unused, but someday I might want to toot with LaTeX?
There are a bunch of library books I want to download... but as soon as I connect my Kindle to the internet, two of the overdue loans that I still want to read will go poof. Gaaaaaah it's DRM predicament bondage.
I skipped folklife yesterday, on account of I did bad job at sleep and self-care all week. It was what I needed.
Inspired by @distel's krimskrams I sorted through a big pile in the room where clutter goes to die. And hung a bunch of art! It's not optimal - I have many plans involving wall paint and furniture - but it's nicer than being in a pile.
I only have two pieces left to frame & hang now. And that room is much closer to being a sewing room instead of a clutter room.

So one of the effects of not having enough forest fires might be an increase in prion diseases? Fascinating. https://mmbr.asm.org/content/81/3/e00001-17
(What got me into this rabbit hole? Arguing last night whether or not it'd be safe to use the dung from politician-eating dragons to fertilize vegetables.)
Watching pansy colors respond to their environment is interesting, but I have no idea what conditions are responsible for the changes. The blue ones above were a much stronger purple when I first bought them, you can kind of see the difference looking at the bottom flower in the picture.
Meanwhile these had much bigger, gorgeously patterned bronze faces, which they have lost in favor of All The Purple.

I just gave $5 to the Inslee campaign, because he promises to spend the primary debates yelling about climate change. He needs 5,000 more people to donate any amount - $1 is enough! - to get there.
All of the candidates need to be yelling about climate change but somehow they mostly aren't. If Inslee's policy proposals get enough positive exposure that the B-boys start plagiarizing, that's a good outcome.
Please join me in giving a token amount of money: https://www.jayinslee.com/
They have little hairs down the back of the stem a bit like wild lettuce but softer. No white latex.
Even with Zyrtec and good indoor air, my allergies are eating my eyeballs and I hate it.
Don't just kill your lawns. Kill all grass everywhere 💯 🚫 🌱
Would I rather spend 4 hours cleaning the OR than doing my real job? Even if I still have to do the same amount of real work?
(There was a problem with the sterile HVAC system. The whole hospital is going popcorn b/c half the ORs are shut down and evvvvverryyythiiiing has to be cleaned.)
I just looked at the Folklife schedule and aaaaaaaaaa Folklife is so good!
I'm going to try to make it through all of Saturday without collapsing - shape singing in the morning, square + Scandinavian dancing in the evening, dance workshops and concerts and the Balkan singalong in between. Anyone wanna meet up?
Update, I scrounged up a small bag of stuff and went. And I'm glad I did, because someone was getting rid of a bunch of leggings in my size. Score!
