@Red in the 90s anything you saw that had ties to the internet was glamorous & exciting
I saw an artist's AOL screenname in the newspaper so I IMed him to say I liked his work and I was an artist too
He immediately asked me how old I was (I was 19) and then said he was sure my art was great, and he'd love to take a look, and did I have any pics of me also? I got freaked out and never talked to him again

So I work at a hotel that serves free breakfast and dinners (for guests*), though the dinners are only mon-thu.

India pol, article recommendation
I suggest reading this excellently written article if you'd like some insight in how exactly caste and casteism manifests itself in India today. The piece does a great job of relating these traditional indian social structures to ones more familiar to north american audiences, and also does a great job situating them in present-day politics.

But please use one of the full shortcodes because it's not _the_ Wiphala, it's one of 4 https://twitter.com/petcrierbonanza/status/1083045534837981184
