Nice to read a little book review / journal entry I wrote a year ago and it holds up. :)

[hearing light shuffling noise through the wall]

god, i hope that's a squirrel in the crawlspace and not someone moving in to the apartment next to me.

[hearing the sound of a power drill through the wall]

god, i hope the bed frame that squirrel is assembling is quiet and i don't have to constantly hear them fucking.

While Ed Mastery basically silenced the MRAs who complained about feminine pronouns in my tech books, I had previously made this table to answer them.

(By "silenced," I mean "they stopped complaining to me about it." The MRAs are still yammering away in their Man Pits.)

I wish there was an "index fund" of charities and causes that I could trust were vetted to be benefiting people and would adjust contributions to each place as necessary.

Code for America is looking for volunteers to help educate people about the Earned Income Tax Credit. Apparently the EITC is one of the most progressive tax laws on the books, yet millions of eligible Americans don't know about it, so don't take it. bit.ly/3igZX0m

Feeling down? TONS of good news here: cnn.com/2021/01/12/us/elle-ree

I've never been so happy to hear "nobody uses Bitcoin" :D

Fascinating language shift at work: We don't have "backlog grooming" meetings anymore, because of the 2nd definition of "grooming." They're "backlog refinement" meetings now.
Curious if every dog groomer in the US needs to / should rebrand their business.

Repeat it all together with me:

The problem isn't "polarization"

The problem is white supremacy

Finally sat down to listen to the Black Autonomy podcast. It's great, and for a first episode it's amazingly well produced.

Oh, introduction?

The Basics:
Well then, I'm O. Freelance fantasy/scifi artist, teacher, Twitch streamer and bald, sexy biker.

I work live on Twitch every weekend, and think it's exciting to find a new social media platform that seems to have a true focus on artists and art.

Something about me:
I can't burp, swim or take a good photo.

Where to find me:
Just search "oabnormal"! I'll be there. mastodon.art/media/ginjp-wLt3C

Pre-emptive indication of some people in particular who will have a bad time on scholar.social 

It is the official policy of this instance that:

* Fuck off, white supremacists; also
* We do not provide a platform for anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers either

Thank you for your attention
