Pinned toot

A personal philosophy, riffed from Daniel Pinkwater's "Big Orange Splot":

New York City is me and I am it. My city is where I like to be; I hope I can make it look like all my dreams.

Today's accomplishment: with the help of a bunch of grammar references, Google Translate, and squinting at my Language Drops collection, I've written a few sentences in to a stranger!

I've been trying to learn, very slowly, since May.

The stranger in question is my AirBNB host for my upcoming stay in San Francisco, who is bilingual. (I also included the English translation of what I intended to say, of course.)

semi-regular reminder: the #Firefox and Chrome add-on Bypass Paywalls lets you easily get past the article-hiding nag screens on numerous major media websites, even WSJ

both mozilla and google rudely delisted it from their add-on sites so you have to get it from the author's github:

Cute mug filled with instant coffee while I get my hair cut and colored.


Accessibility question: How could one potentially make a flow chart accessible to folks who are blind or otherwise have difficulty seeing images?

There’s a hidden message on Jason Collins’ jersey. The basketball player selected number 98 as an homage to Matthew Shepard, a gay young man who was murdered in 1998.
In 2013, Collins became one of the first male major league athletes to publicly announce he was gay. #Pride


Job hunting in Boston, boosts appreciated Show more

I need to find a trans community in NW Florida. I feel like I'm slowly falling to pieces, unable to present as male. If you're in the area, especially the Bay County area, can you please get in touch with me?

If you're not, can you please boost this so that area residents can see this?

Sorry I've been RTing more than actually posting here.

It's been an emotionally intense last few months. Mostly good - deep investments in my self-improvement, my relationships, and local community - but that takes all the energy I've got.

I hope you're well, friends.

If you run an instance that has closed invitations (by policy, not temporarily due to load or spam), I'd be interested in chatting with you about why your instance is closed, and how/if you allow new members, and what you do for people who you can't/won't let in. (I run a closed instance myself and LOVE it, so I'm just looking to get a sense of current practice, not for debate.) #mastodamins

Reminder that I have gay merchandise that you can buy for Pride and actually support someone who isn't a big heterosexual corporation. Boosts appreciated!

Vox is on strike today- they're trying to unionize! ✊

As a result, consuming media today from Vox, The Verge, or Polygon constitutes breaking a picket line.
