Time for an post!

I'm an old woman and even though there is definitely some queerness going on my identity I go by she/her pronouns. I transitioned well over a decade ago. In fact, it's been so long it is at times easy to forget I'm trans at all.

Some of current hobbies include (you can follow my work on the tag), playing (though I play much less than I used to), and . I play both on consoles and PC. I have a setup and a .

I tend to stick to singleplayer games; usually (action) RPGs, sandboxes, turn-based strategy (mostly ) , and all types of puzzle games. I don't exactly have the reflexes anymore to play most platformers or shooters and the likes. Quick-Time Events are my enemy.

My body is broken and living with chronic pain hampers my physical ability throughout the day. I have to carefully plan my chores and appointments throughout the day/week as too much activity can leave me exhausted for days.

I am passionate about and and almost always have some crazy new project in my head which I may or may not be actually smart enough to accomplish. I try to adopt applications when able and am somewhat of a and security advocate.

Media has shaped and continues to shape much of my life. I love , movies, , , popcorn action flicks, , , and the other usual geeky stuff. Especially fond of old and shows and movies.

I am and may not always 'get' the proper context or tone but it mostly manifests in hyperfocus and making obscure pop culture references.

I was lucky enough to grow up with access to all kinds of technology and computers during the rise of computing - and later, the internet - which made me naturally tech-literate and able to 'speak' computer though that doesn't mean I can program at all. We just have a mutual understanding.

This is humble, but it's one of the pieces I've been happiest with! It's made with `stitchcraft`, `ih`, and love <3

Just in case anyone is concerned about how fast the COVID-19 vaccines were produced: it is because they are variants of the SARS vaccine, which we've had for more than a decade.

COVID-19 can be treated with a variant of the SARS vaccine because COVID-19 is a variant of SARS. The virus that causes SARS is SARS-CoV, and the 2019 novel coronavirus is SARS-CoV-2.

Because of this, researchers had a vaccine ready for testing as early as January 2020. The COVID-19 vaccine had, in fact, nearly a full year of testing and refinement. It is not by any means "experimental" or "untested".

bilingual pride facts 

the Arabic names for the different components of LGBT all start with the letter ู… meem, the M sound.

lesbian = ู…ุซู„ูŠุงุช mithlayat
gay = ู…ุซู„ูŠูˆู† mithlyeen
bisexual = ู…ุฒุฏูˆุฌูŠ ุงู„ู…ูŠูˆู„ muzdawjay al-muyul
transgender = ู…ุชุญูˆู„ูˆู†/ ู…ุชุญูˆู„ุงุช ุงู„ุฌู†ุณ mutahawaleen / mutahawilat al-jins

so the acronym would actually just be ู…ู…ู…ู… MMMM lol. instead, it's the meme society, which is, I think, extremely very good.

bilingual pride facts 

because acronyms are basically impossible in Arabic I was curious what the accepted equivalent of LGBT was. I grew up a clueless straight boy so I didn't know offhand.

turns out it's ู…ุฌุชู…ุน ุงู„ู…ูŠู… mujtamaa al-meem, literally "meme community" or "meme society"

happy pride everyone

Does anyone actually pronounce it as f s tab. I mean, f stab just sounds more fun, right!?

the idea that boys and girls can't have friendships that aren't amorous is one of the worst gender-related things taught to children

This shit is a really stark demonstration of the way parents of autistic children are taught to consider their children burdens and failures, rather than appreciating their talents and vision

I really wish "abrasive asshole" weren't considered a positive character trait by so many people on the internet.

I made a pool for Pachas vet care.
She is turning 13 soon and has just been diagnosed with asthma. The x-rays and bloodwork alone cost $180 each. She is my baby...
