Happy #polyam moment - on vacation with both partners, taking the afternoon to rest by myself while they go explore Seattle together 😊
Question for #fountainpen users who have mostly switched to paperless workflows - when do you still handwrite things?
I switched over last year to stop buying a notebook every few months and generating waste mostly just for meeting notes, but I miss the pens and inks
If you're not already supporting your local abortion fund or want to support a national network:
mental health, working out
First workout of any kind since March 1, first strength training since January… it sucks being in the blackness and knowing that exercise would help but not having the points to spend on working out.

Links on: protecting trans kids' rights in Indiana; OFMD is the love story queer genre fans have been aching for; renting in Indiana; Frank Peretti and This Present Darkness's link to our current darkness; what is free speech?
I'll miss the Batmobile-esque Gen 2, but the #FormulaE Gen 3 car looks fun ^^
I started watching old seasons of #Taskmaster over the winter; s13 is my first time watching episodes as they're coming out. The fun silly show I need in these times.
Readings that sparked joy these last few months

Maybe don't repeatedly misgender someone you've invited to speak at your professional interest group?
Maybe that's a bad look, especially when they've put their pronouns in their display name?
I'm conflict adverse and may not say you're misgendering me in the moment, but I'm going to remember that like a Telltale Games character
Trying to leave things better than I found them.
