I've practically moved to sunbeam.city because this has been down a lot and it's a wonderful name 😊

I went from one WIP paper to 3-4 in less than a week 💀 at least one of them seems to be happening in a short timescale compared to the year++ of the previous ones, which is good because I'd like to have a more diverse selection of papers for my thesis.

Allergies are weird, one day I'm fine eating a thing, the next I end up so itchy I can barely function

From twitter.com/urbanfriendden

instead of "sir/madam", consider "traveller"

- gender neutral
- fun to say
- acknowledges the endless journey of the soul
- makes you feel like a medieval tavernkeep
- you absolutely can't risk misgendering a wandering swordmaster

"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Troy Story

I got so used to hotel life that every morning my first thought seeing my apartment is "damn this is going to be a pain to pack when I have to leave"

This is bizarre but true: in older (and by that I mean largely pre-1900) English printed alphabets, the character & was printed at the end, and was memorized as a 27th character.

It was recited in the alphabet as "per se and", meaning "'and' by itself". So the end of the alphabet went "X, Y, Z, and per se and."

The phrase "and per se and" eventually got contracted - and is how we got today's name for the symbol: ampersand.

Tokyo is the best. I've been enjoying this so much 😭

I got to hang out with my BFF all day. Such a good fun day 💙^^

I'm not sure if my neck can withstand my head any more

Oh my gosh. *fans self* Today I was breezily bisexual.

I missed the GazettE in Helsinki in 2007, never had a reasonable chance to see them since, so I finally flew to Paris just to fix that hole in my gig history and the gig is about to start and I'm hypeeeeee

Watching a Murder on the Orient Express production in a theatre built in an old fortress. Incredibly atmospheric.

I get annoyed when people put [citation needed] on mathematical proofs in Wikipedia.

Do they know that's not the usual measurement of truth 'round these parts?

over.thinking would be a great instance name for any of us who are chronic overthinkers.

Ahh only a week and a half until Paris and two and a half until Tokyo 😁🌍🌏
