Shoot all thought leaders into the sea
What I thought were tiny white potatoes are actually tiny peeled potatoes that are covered in that bagged salad chemical. Yuck. Also I guess I need new glasses.
dang /r/indieheads is a pile of crap
Speaking of stories, job ads are asking for stories now. Now I gotta think of a charming and interesting story about me, rather than the truth. "Crazy, smart, poor, old woman marginalized into admin work seeks something decent with people who aren't too horrible. Give me money."
My phone made a "story" of select photos of my cat and titled it "what a sweetie." My hair stood on end when I found it. TOO FAR, AI.
Man, a lot of books on mindfulness are super classist.
Oh no dowdy shoes are back in style. I can't look at them objectively because they're very late 90s - early 00s, which is my jam.
I found a job I REALLY want. Pls cross all digits for me.

I dragged myself downtown to meet my mother for lunch. I was dreading it b/c she is not mentally well and was v. abusive for decades. She was psyched, which was nice, but.
It was OK. Except she casually mentioned that she had my other cat put down 5 months ago. And then tried to tell me that my sister and father thought I was lazy and pathetic, but *she* didn't think that.
When I got home I sat on the porch in the cold sunshine for awhile to pull myself back into reality.
You know the Chinese lion dance costume? My mother looks like that whenever she buys food at grocery stores here. Her eyes pop out, her jowls quiver, and her head shakes in rage. "WHERE ARE THE CRUMPETS?! I NEED MOLASSES BREAD!! WHY DON'T THEY HAVE GRAVES BEANS??"
OF COURSE I'M NOT ALLOWED TO DO WHAT I WANT WITH MY OWN FUCKING COMPUTER AND OS. *#$*#(*$
What's a good, free alternative to the Windows default photo viewer? Anybody?
Oh wow the latest Adobe CS updates are so freaking great! I love the change to undo in PS, and I love the new freeform gradient in Illustrator.
I hate that bit before a cold properly settles in. The hot throat dizzy super-tired feeling. I prefer to be a snot bag thx
Woo sudden hail storm! Cat was very intrigued by the bouncing ice balls outside the window.
Lol some entertainment reporter is talking about Karen Kain on the news like no one knows who she is. "The woman who put this on, a dancer named Karen Kain..." She's Canada's most famous dancer!
When I give compliments people take them greedily and hoard them. There's no exchange or mutual appreciation going on, which is what I was used to in my old friend groups and workplaces.
When I hung out with my old friend from Halifax a couple of weeks ago it was the first time since i moved here that someone had been genuinely nice to and appreciative of me. It's really important for humans to get that regularly. In the spaces I've been in Toronto, in costuming, at work, and online people hoard praise and kindness and are liberal with criticism and put-downs. It's sick.
I laugh at things no one else thinks is funny. Proud member of the Stay at Home Club and the Pizza and Cats Club. Newish resident of Toronto.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
