Pinned toot

will admit that saying "I'm not bent on destroying the planet" feels odd in light of the 20 KILOWATT LASER I apparently am now responsible for setup of.

I keep seeing a lot of apologies for not being interesting or funny or positive, and I just wanna say:

You are a person, not a brand. You do not need to be consistently anything but yourself. If you need to take a break, that's OK. We're all people, we'll understand.

I have a ton of dahlia pics, but yeah, this is from when the partner and I went out to see Gorillaz at the Key Center in Seattle. Dragged him to Point Defiance because it's one of my Happy Places.

(The partner liked it too; this is how I know that he's good people.)

Full photo, for anyone who's curious. 's a dahlia from the garden at Point Defiance.

see also: "I want people to recognize me, but I'm tired of my old avatar and flowers are in right now."

different avatar, same color scheme = A+.

Nice language things: in Georgian terms for parts of the body, the palm is called khelisguli - formed of kheli (hand) + guli (heart), so it's literally the heart of the hand which I think is really nice :)

oh, what's this? I finally figured out what the fuck is going on? well, finally. took long enough.

skee-lo: I wish I was a little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller
me: okay, I'm with you
skee-lo: I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
me: sure, makes sense
skee-lo: I wish I had a rabbit in a hat
with a bat, and 64 impala
me: ,I, guess?
skee-lo: I wish I was like 6'9"
me: you lost me, skee-lo, that's too tall. you'll hit your head on door frames

A lot of the time I’m like “ugh god I’m so Young and my emotions are So Big I must be constantly annoying all my fellow mastodonians” but then I listen to the music y’all talk about or recommend to me and I’m ok oh. This is a whole website full of people with Big Emotions. All is well.

tl;dr, I'm friendly and have realized that being able to do things like talk to strangers is a skill; if you have questions about it, hit me up. No question too awkward, as long as it's about platonic interaction! :)
