@pizza Thank you fluffy tummy!

I have some fuzzy tummy to go pet now.

@Jmaurer Thanks! and aww, this isn't even an I-don't-get-self-care thing, it's literally a "I could help my loved ones and I miss them and I want to" but isolation measures still going on mean I CAN'T.
And *that* is making me feel sad/anxious.

@irina I hate when that happens. You get all excited that there will be some relief from a humid spell and all it does is re-steam the place.

Reminder that you can just unsubscribe from emails!

ugh. the vicarious trauma of various friends&fam who have struggles in life is something I'm usually in a position to... absorb a bit of. you know, deliver a meal, hug, hang out.

CoVid is making the other traumas in life harder on my nears&dears, and the ripple effect of NOT BEING ABLE TO BE USEFUL is creating its own grief.

Sorry to everyone who is let down lately. And sorry, pocket-frens, I'm just spewing here since the nears&dears don't need to deal with my anxieties. I know U know this.

Hello world.

Been a while again.

hm. my feed has disappeared. Hope you're all holding up.

Though as I think about it, most of the photos of actual looting I’ve seen have been white people 🤔

I found a ton of wasabi soy sauce roasted almonds at the store and they may already be almost gone. NO REGRETS.

stupid weather. All the headache, none of the catharsis.

Storm, dammit! That thunder was promising me A STORM!!!!

@therisingtithes I don’t have a deity on the line, specifically, but I can relate. “Witnessing.”, as one of our fellow fedizens says to me.

Wine, a good book, a bathtub.

Where I went wrong was attempting skin care, too, because a face peel applied before hopping into a bath apparently melts... and drips into the eyes. So I can’t see well enough to read just yet, ow.

Oh well. At least, wine.

I would so dearly love to see this guy get his new boat, and help someone else off the street into his current one.

I dunno why, amidst all the other hard luck stories and crowdfunders I see (some I can support, some not), this one grabs me.


There's just something so basically relateable about "I need help, but I need to help someone even worse off, too".

Disclaimer: I don't know this guy at all, yeah, it could be a total fraud. But he seems ... real.

spider, but cute 

Hey all ya USian friends - stay safe in whatever you celebrate this weekend, mmmm-kay?

We got thru Passover, Easter, Mothers' Day, our anniversary, and Canada's Victoria Day last weekend sticking with distancing and only-essentials protocols. It's still needed.

Get outside, but chat with friends and fam from away or on video. Don't share massive picnic buffets. Be well.

Doh! Nope, looks like I’m gonna shit down for server maintenance.

Opening my island gate for some company. It’s raining on Hogsmeade if you find that useful/appealing. I’ve hear rumours that brings out cool fish but so far I have not benefitted. Hubs has.

@Satsuma sorry I accidentally chatted then dropped you! Went offline or you did while@i was trying to get the chat kbd up.
