Of course instead of a friendly sloth I take these to a too-small composter that will take forever to break them down into fertilizer.

If playing Animal Crossing for hundreds of hours has prepared me for anything it's this

It's fucking time we stop policing poor people for how they spend their money!!!!!

From the moment you decide to give money to someone, it's not your business what they do with it!!!!

Poor people deserve things that make them happy!

STOP POLICING POOR PEOPLE. Period.

At work we finally hired a manager for my team (the previous one quit right before I started in September).

I mentioned this to a friend and said β€œand she was at Cray before, so hopefully she knows something about high-performance computing.”

My friend’s response: β€œCray? I haven’t heard of them”

Y’all

gender & media, nb characters 

dear assorted writers of the world: if you wanna have a character use they/them or neos or something, just have folks use those pronouns from them from the get-go. At most, maybe an initial miss-assumed pronoun and a correction.

Definitely not one set of pronouns only to be like "oh they/them actually" (unless it's a reflection of the character realizing things about themselves over the course of the story). 'Cause, that's a great way to make audiences cache one gender and then implicitly think the character is always "basically a girl" or whatever.

looking at you, ST:Discovery.

Unpacking update:

β€’ Finally almost done in the bedroom
β€’ Kitchen is sorta usable but still has a ways to go
β€’ Living room still a fucking disaster
β€’ Basement is just like whatevs at this point (but I really should at least set up the 3D printing station and at least try to get stuff organized)

So I got a sit-stand desk from Monoprice, which is pretty great, except the lowest position was a little too high when I sit. So I added on a clamp-on keyboard tray to move the keyboard down a little (which also makes room for my Wacom tablet, in case I ever feel like doing comics ever again...) and now the desk's highest position is a little too low.

So basically I don't know what body size this desk is supposed to fit.

lo-fi jingle cats beats to chose and crochet to

Fiona still is getting freaked out by the forced air heating in this house.

I think my favorite running gag is how people get drunk off chicken wings

Like they weren’t allowed to show alcohol at all (because cartoon network) but that didn’t stop them from comedic intoxication plots

regular show spoilersish 

maybe I'm just completely misunderstanding stuff or reading too much into things, I dunno

Okay no they ended up like... oversimplifying it past the point of therapeutic benefit and they've just completely ignored the fact that CJ was a toxic/borderline person, and that Mordecai is just like... way too much of an appeaser.

And it was Mordecai who finally decided to call it off with her but then in season 7 they're portraying it as Mordecai was dumped by her?

On the plus side, S6E28 actually finally addresses some of that, and it's clear that the writers were being deliberate and careful about a touchy subject.

I've been finally watching all of Regular Show in order and I've made it to the end of season 6. It's really neat how much the characters have evolved over the run of the show, but oh god CJ+Mordecai keeps on giving me some bad flashbacks to a really bad relationship I had a while ago.

I just started the roomba up and Fiona's freaking out. I feel 50% bad and 50% like I should be recording this.

last night I was actually weirdly giddy to roll my trash bin out to the curb, and right now I'm lusting over retractable hose reels

So this is my connection over wifi. When I get wired ethernet (tomorrow, hopefully!) it should be even better.

Werner has been pretty excited about the move through the whole process. Fiona was pissed and sullen and shell-shocked, but last night she started to warm up and now I think they’re both happy to be here.

I was worried that there wouldn’t be any fun hiding spots for them but Fiona has managed to do her thing anyway.

Also now they can curl up in the sun in so many more places!

I am so glad I made this change.
