Pinned toot

Writing a new intro post because - new instance.

Hey. I'm Jay. I am an ace enby writer of science fiction and fantasy. I am also an existential void bag of bad puns & the BEST rebooted song lyrics. In a committed poly relationship with coffee & Skittles.

So the only thing I have really done in the past few days is convince a grown-ass adult that H. P. Lovecraft's name was Hewlett-Packard Lovecraft.

I am preparing for by procrastinating on outlining for as long as possible!

Ever read a book that starts off promising and you think you've found a new fave, but then it rapidly devolves into absolute shit until the only reason you keep reading is you're now invested even if you know how it will end, then when it does it leaves you in a really bad mood?

Does anybody else do that thing where you're eating M&Ms or Skittles and you try to guess the color of the piece in your hand before you see it?

I think I might have accidentally written most of a flash piece -- but I have no idea how to finish it! :(

I've been tooting all day. I've also been posting shit on Mastodon.

Oh no. It has HAPPENED. Jay can't sleep and Jay is BORED.

Characters will die.


Ice cream can't fill the void in my soul, but it sure can fill my stomach in lieu of actual breakfast!

Me: Oh I know exactly what I'd do for this Top Chef challenge! I'd ROCK this! My dish would kick butt! Oh yes!

Brain: You know this is Top Chef Junior, right?

Me: ...yes.

Brain: And they're like, 11, right?

Me: ...yeeees.

Also me: ᴵ ʷᵒᵘˡᵈ ˢᵒ ᵏⁱᶜᵏ ᵗʰᵉⁱʳ ᵏⁱᵈᵈⁱᵉ ᵃˢˢᵉˢ

One way to counteract negative impulses is to pretend they are an object of importance and then systematically destroy them.

My self-hatred is ice cream.

I am eating ice cream.

Made the mistake of going out for groceries this morning. I got home safely despite tornado warnings, during rain with terrible visibility and flooded roads. I am staying home for the rest of the day; I think this has been the worst day yet for us in terms of Florence.

Still have power, thank goodness.

If you’d like to help people affected by Florence, consider donating to - they’ll get diapers, menstrual supplies, and incontinence supplies to people who need them.

Today my gender is the maggot death of the last vestiges of my feminine intuition.
