I wonder if Kirk goes on away missions so often because he has to fight agoraphobia. #headcanon
A sort of demographic-y survey for Mastodon users!
I'm curious to see what we "look like" and I love to make surveys and then graph the results and share them, so here it is:
I will share the graphs with you all at some point shortly after the survey closes.
Please share this far and wide so that we get results from as many instances as possible! Thank you. :)
Back from the Nebulas with a whole new list of people and projects. Something about meeting new folks and interacting with groups that makes ideas flow.
Also, I didn't die during the first panels I've ever done in my life. Bonus.
And Richard Mann took a picture of me. I know, he takes pictures of everyone, but SQUEE I love that guy.
And here are more pictures of Lily, because I'm here and they're here and you might as well get some chiweenie cuteness this morning. https://wandering.shop/media/BzYfx3Ve17zJg6Q823o https://wandering.shop/media/xhm7QSFmVXM0hXYHCw0 https://wandering.shop/media/UKB5dlxBL9atxDomWkg https://wandering.shop/media/87S056O_oUIrYGUnzlY
Here's Lily. My favorite dog. A doxie-chihuahua mix I got through Dachshund Rescue of North America. She was my certified companion dog when I had severe agoraphobia. An accomplished ratter. She had degenerative disc disease. https://wandering.shop/media/HppHi1vkofAovv0SjOw
Ok, morbid morning. Because I'm sitting here with my MRI results and musing with my spouse that the old adage about how people are like their dogs is true. I love and have cared for many a dachshund. And hey, I'm short. I'm silly. And now I have degenerative disc disease. So we're apparently made for each other.
Spent most of the morning educating a textbook editing team on how to refer to trans people. This article helped me get my point across. Read, and keep me from having to edit you in the future. ;) http://www.entirelyamelia.com/2014/06/10/amelia-teaches-trans-101-refer-trans-persons-past/
