I've been meaning to update mine for a while anyway, so part 2!

She/her, queer, Chicana, partnered, feminist. PhD in materials chemistry, now working as a postdoc in materials science and trying to launch a startup.

Hobbies:

Loves: good urban fantasy, friendly people

Hates: racists, TERFs/SWERFs, alt-righters (see: first entry in list), people who insist on calling me by my full (HORRIBLE) name

Hi!

Pinned toot

She/her, queer, Chicana, partnered, feminist. PhD in materials chemistry. Occasional dabbler in long-form speculative fiction. Hobbies include, "describing self horribly on different social media platforms." Currently rocking that postdoc life. Open to job opportunities, new friendships, and book recommendations.

Told the partner about the mouse-situation and asked him to take it from her if he sees it.

"Okay," he said, "but you have to know, I still haven't figured out where all her hidey-holes are."

I'm not going to see that mouse for a month, am I?

Do you ever try to spell a word and you look at it like, "who allowed squirm to be spelled like that"

The little cat has a REALLY GROSS gray mouse toy. She's chewed the ears off, and most of its fur is missing now.

I tried to take it from her this morning, and she ran off and hid it somewhere. SHE KNOWS 😬

"Do you ever wonder what your cat named you?"

I *know* what the Little Cat named the partner and I. She has different meows she addresses us by!

Free* idea for a name for a tea-and-yarn shop: Brew for Ewe

*If you use this I'm entitled to free tea. Don't worry, I will buy enough yarn to make up for it.

Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:

If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.

CC @fosdem, can we get a little boost 💜?

What if the response to tumblr being banned from the app store was tumblr making its mobile web version usable instead of being shit and literally insulting you for trying to like a post

real talk, I'm seriously kinda put off when people refer to cops or capitalists as pigs. Pigs are intelligent and empathic creatures y'all.

A very nice young creature held the door open for me as I walked into the burrito place.

"Thank you!" I told them.

"Of course!" they said, but VERY GRIMLY, and now I wonder if they're under a curse that causes them to hold the door open for every person they run across.

Any trans women willing to share their experiences in residential treatment (voluntary commitment)? Boosts appreciated.
