What I'm about (reposted from old account, but still relevant!):
I adore my #cat Lola, parlez un peu de #français , and am looking to have a kid eventually. #PokemonGo was my first Pokemon game, and I love it still. I type with #Colemak and recently overcame chronic pain in my foot with a combination of PT and #MMJ . I love #JapaneseFood and sobbed through the whole last episode of #Evangelion because I needed to hear its message that it's okay to like yourself. My favorite music is college radio, #KXLU or #KXUA , and I am a #Maximizer AMA.
Just got a haircut, eye contact, selfie

About to get a haircut, selfie, eye contact
Suddenly, I realize why Amazon deprecated their old app to release one identical
Time to disable all those notifications again
I was yesterday by the eye doctor and they put some drops in my eyes that made me see blurry, and when I could finally see the stuff on my desk I found this note 💚
And I want to share it with all of you because all of you deserve to read that!
No idea how good/useful it is, but this may be relevant to some people:
"The Reflective Workbook for Partners of Transgender People
D. M. Maynard
Uniquely addressing the needs of partners of transgender people, this self-help workbook supports the journey partners navigate as their partner transitions or questions their gender."
So if you are really interested in new sustainable ways of structuring whole societies, you need to read Dark Emu.
A chapter in that is about society and governance- there is good evidence that Aboriginal Australia existed for up to 60,000 years as a peaceful agricultural rules based society. Oh, in warm homes btw. Obviously without money, living communally, in careful management of the environment.
The point is, it's not theory. It worked, for millennia.
I always start radicalizing co-workers by normalizing the word comrade
The rest of 'em.
Just finished up a collection of small paintings, trying to do something with my feelings about the kind of inherent lack of interface between my painting work and the sociopolitical clusterfuck we're living in while I do said painting work.
Still feeling myself out about these, and whether and how well they get where I was aiming.
I always wanted to make one of those "paperchild" cutout doll things... so I did.
(except a lot of those are kind of creepy and pervy, so let's have a sci-fi paladin doing something cool instead)

no one really worries about the demoness in that cave. sure, she gives you the body of a soft curvy succubus the second you walk in, but she doesn't touch your soul, and you'll revert to your normal form when you leave
that is, as long as you don't fall asleep in her bed
she also avoids coercing her would-be victims in any way. if you can resist her gentle temptation, it's a very effective shortcut to the next town
and yet here you are, thick, downy bedcovers pulled up to your widened hips, your adorable new pout buried in the demoness's shoulder
if she would just stop running her fingers over your scalp in that way that made your eyelids flutter, stop cooing praise in your delicately pointed ear without a hint of teasing or irony, stop being so goddamn warm, you could be out of here in a second
but instead, she pulls the covers up over your shoulders. you fail to suppress a squeaky little yawn, and you earn a kiss on the forehead for the attempt
there's nothing for it. your escape plan will just have to wait
until tomorrow 💤
have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?
simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!
because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!
check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!
I think the thought I'm internalizing today is, "Given the apparently impending nature of the next election cycle, I need to prioritize fleshing out and living up to how I want to communicate online. all evidence I know says that decentralized federated platforms are going to be even more exploitable than legacy social media, by those who will be seeking to exploit online platforms, and no one in those platforms' communities seems to respect that, and most believe the opposite, eesh."
