I'm going to try to post stuff at @squiggy , and it will be mostly friends-only.
If you want to read about my inner turmoil, and we're mutuals, good chance I'll approve a follow request. Just want to talk about that stuff in a smaller sandbox.

bad covid news that results in a selfish benefit
The good news is that with take-out-only it is probably safer for me to go downstairs and shop for groceries, since they have probably closed off the indoor food court seating area again, where the healthcare workers from our building would take lunch...

Minneapolis Survey (climate adj)
ICYMI Minneapolis Waste and Recycling has a survey seeking input how household waste has changed since March of 2020.
I, for one, have noticed a SIGNIFICANT increase in the waste leaving our home.
It's especially stressful as we're witnessing climate breakdown.
Anywho, fill it out. IMO this is a good survey that is designed just to gather data.
(though there's one point asking if we'd support a policy to opt in to single use items)
Teal enby in a bow tie alert
I enjoy the first minute of this incredibly authentic video of TV news personality Rachel Maddow telling the world that she doesn't know how to put on makeup and she doesn't use it, before talking about her partner nearly dying from Covid.
LB is no surprise to me; for years when I thought I was cis my twitter profile included "she/her". TERFs I argued with would find excuses to call me "he," say I was an "ugly man," claim I was pretending to be a lesbian (as someone with mostly male romantic and sexual partners, that always made me laugh; I'm the worst fucking lesbian)... All conclusions they jumped to based on nothing more than the presence of pronouns
Cis people, sharing your pronouns is that powerful. It drains power from them
covid, grs (---)
My surgery date gets pushed further and further out every day this continues.
Someone on here was talking about chocolate beet cake the other night and we were like "we have had a bag of beets sitting in the freezer for at least a year..." and the rest is history.
I made this tonight
it is pretty good
