Pinned toot

FYI: in an effort to be screenreader-friendly and accessible, I don't toot or boost anything to this profile that includes an image without an image description.

cannot express the level of relief associated with having clear instructions for this 😭

omg... turns out closing this Irish bank account should be fairly easy. I will have to mail them a pic of a photo ID and a written letter saying I want to pay any fees and close the account and that should be sufficient. I was so stressed they'd want some sort of magic adult documents I don't have.

You want to know how much free disk space you have but you're on a weird OS

tfw no df

Oh cool, I also just got the orbital sander to finish the bedframe. I'll get a dust mask before using that but otherwise I should be able to finish it and set up the bed by this weekend :D

I have mattress! It is firm, as advertised! I don't hate it! but it is taking up like half of the floor space downstairs and I'm not a big fan of that!!

Show thread

ok so mattress today, sheets tomorrow, photos to hang on the walls today, orbital sander to finish the bedframe ??? who knows when, and the stain on the bedframe boards should be cured enough to continue work by tomorrow...

It's going to be a busy weekend!!! God help my boyfriend if he visits! Hope he's ready to do some orbital sanding!

health stuff, mundane, HRT 

I still haven't heard back from PP about my HRT script (I'll call them on Friday and ask if I missed a call). But while looking for a PCP around here I found out that the doctor other trans people go to for HRT also seems to be a normal PCP and is taking new patients?

So I may call to get an appointment with her as a PCP and ask if she can also do my HRT, which would be great because it's all I can do to stay on top of that script without adding in a separate PCP.

oml my mattress is getting delivered 2 daya early today and my office, where it would make sense to decompress it, is still full of non-assembled bedframe bits

tonight I got my NaNo outline to a point where I think I can reasonably fill in all the rest of the details while I write the first draft 🙌 Hopefully I'll go back to a bit more character and setting development before it starts on Sunday, but I'm pretty much ready to go :)

while I was doing it I was like "hm this is absolutely not going to pay off" but I went through with it anyway and behold. it didn't pay off. but I had fun so whatever

some friends in one of my Discord servers were joking about wrong pronounciations of "Mojang" (Moyang, etc.) and I spent like 10 minutes figuring out the IPA to say "actually, I think it's [mɞudʒaŋ]" and got absolutely no response

I love the miter back saw, by the way. I think it got squarer results than the standard handsaw, although it does take a bit longer. It was also a smoother sawing experience because of the smaller teeth. Sawing is definitely a task I don't mind doing by hand, although the power saw is fun too.

At work today, we discussed what "BLUF" (apparently "big line up front") means & a colleague jumped in, explaining that they only knew it's used in a military context so assumed it stood for "Better Listen Up, Fuckers"... and welp, that's my headcanon now.

I think I've had the most visually comical woodworking problem possible today.

(My miter back saw was ALMOST deep enough to cut through a 4x4.)

I almost had to go full determination mode on this, but my wellspring of inner strength has been replenished by this conversation and I am once again pretty confident I can finish this up this weekend and have it just about done by the time the mattress (which arrives Friday) finishes decompressing.

It sounds like the mildew should be ignored since it's basically a cosmetic issue, and the stain problem *can* be ignored because the glue joints it would affect won't be load-bearing, but he's also going to send me a power sander so I can see how deep the stain went and remove it if it didn't go too deep.

So I'll give that a shot whenever the sander arrives and until then busy myself with slicing up the 4x4 for the legs!

I think the consultant dad outlook is that both of these problems are best simply ignored, which is great. This is rarely the outcome of consulting consultant dad.
