Looking for someone to fill apartment Show more
If anyone's in the general area of Boston looking for housing soon, I'm in a 4-bedroom apartment with two people moving out in March. East Cambridge, short walk to Kendall and the Green Line, the two of us who are staying mostly keep to ourselves.
Laundry in the basement, rent is under $1k per person per month, DM if interested.
introducing: me Show more
Well, an #introduction since they seem to be going around.
I'm Qwerty, and yes there are people who call me that in meatspace. I like to say I collect (creative) hobbies but honestly I haven't been able to stick to one yet for long enough to be competent. I work in software and run on music; I #cook and #bake and read and occasionally fumble in the direction of #drawing or #gamedev, and I drink almost exclusively tea.
I've been #sketching every day for a month and a half, but this is possibly the first one (or one of few, anyway) that I actually like.
Eh. Maybe I'll put up a few more later.
Four years, now. #GNUTerryPratchett
Came out as #trans by way of getting dressed in a skirt this morning and eventually getting seen by Mum this evening. Her first question after our mutually stumbling to "I'm trans" was that she thought I said I was asexual last she heard. Followed by eventual asking-to-confirm "so you feel female?" and possible confusion with crossdressing.
finding dory conspiracy theory time part 1 Show more
hello beautiful friends it’s finding dory conspiracy theory time!
It is my genuine belief that the plot of finding dory was changed halfway through production by disney to allow for maximum merch partnerships and toy distribution, in this essay I LITERALLY WILL EXPLAIN WHY
Spent a couple of hours yesterday listening to Schala's Theme and trying to transcribe it to MIDI for eventual remixing. It was really hard to make out the percussion (the only bit for which I didn't have an existing engraving to read).
( _ _ ' -- r -- * ), more or less, but every four bars the thing at the end is different.
(I don't know any standard way of transcribing what seems to be a mix of bongos and tambourine)
Sometimes, I ruminate on an interaction I had where I was attempting to explain my deconstructed understanding of disability and ableism, and someone repeated back to me the thing I was saying, but as if it was a refutation to what I was saying.
I still don't understand what happened. It feels like maybe a moment of allistic tomfoolery?
I hope allistics understand that this weirdness sticks with us and confuses us long after you write us off.
Please, uh, be explicit and specific with people
Played a bit of 2015 wordplay text-adventure Counterfeit Monkey last night with a friend. It's good! Loving the puzzles, took a bit to get in the rhythm of it but then there's those moments where you just get it.
So far we've got the single-letter remover, the was-this-changed monocle, and the "restoration gel" (undo a change).
Collector of hobbies. Art, cooking, coding, gamedev. #ActuallyAutistic
