Checked my oura ring history, and I stopped having good fulfilling night's sleep the first week of June 😫

It's 32°C right now, and I'm thinking about that tweet that said something like summer isn't that great of a season, most people only think they like it best because they spent at least 12 years where it was their only uninterrupted time off.

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

me: I wanna leave this sucky country.

randos: Well not everyone can leave, some of us have to stay and make things better! ~guilt trip, moral superiority~

me: My family has a tradition of running to escape fascists. It also has a tradition of being murdered by fascists, but that's less appealing.

You're really going to have to try harder if you want me to think that emigrating to a better life is bad.

I think weekends are for charging up my narrative batteries so that during the week I can produce prose.

I can now see the end of this fic. There's still many thousands of words left to get there, but it's there and really just an elaboration of events to get there.

Up to 56k words now, and into chapter 10 of 11.

We'd like to thank @theregister for writing what is undeniably the most entertaining & fantastical line we've seen about the Thunderbird & @k9mail collaboration:

Me: I like tostones. I will buy green plantains.
Me, 4 days later: I have yellow plantains.

Unclear if I was on a date-date or a friend-date, but either way I spent today walking around the Storm King Art Center in NY and got to hear Omar's story about how he came to America.

If I actually used reading progress/book reviews trackers, I would use Storygraph, but the reality is that I can't be bothered to track that stuff. GoodReads has like... 10 year old information on it.

So I finally killed my Goodreads account because I'm trying to limit my Amazon usage to as little as possible and switched to Storygraph a Black woman-owned book tracking platform that uses machine learning for making suggestions, which are disturbingly accurate.

The cool part is that it consumes GoodReads exports so you have all you're reading data.

You should sign up. And when you do, hit me with a link and I'll follow you.

AHHHHHHH I now have to start on Chapter 10 of 11!
This is the big set piece. The whole actiony plotty part that I didn't even know how it was going to go until a friend came over last weekend and helped me plot it out.

It's basically a The Mandalorian episode and if it doesn't work the whole thing is for nothing!


Had a headache all day. Pain killers did nothing and eventually my eyes started to hurt from looking at the screen, so I left work 2 hours early.

My cycle should be starting soon, so it's probably that. So I put together calendula, red clover, rose and peppermint tea. That actually did seem to help even though none of those are "pain killers," the red clover is like a "process and balance hormones" plant, as is calendula. Rose is more for taste and emotional support.
