"Objectives qua pangram: flex, eschew gadzookery" (40)
just got my April backup done right on schedule
things abandoned on our busier sidewalk strip in the last couple of weeks: car battery, half-cart from a grocery store three miles away. It's college moveout season and I anticipate at least one argument with someone trying to abandon furniture on our corner "because it'll move faster that way", possibly with an erroneous attempt at "you're just a renter anyway, what do you care" sass

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region. Predominantly queer with a focus on urban and social justice issues.
