I have decided to begin using formal and familiar pronouns.

My formal pronouns are they/them, and these are the pronouns I ask everyone to use unless otherwise invited.

While many folks know my familiar pronouns (I've been going by them for a while after all), please try not to use them. Right now, I will only be sharing my familiar pronouns with folks I regularly talk with one-on-one -- folks I can call on the phone or chat with on Discord or something.

When you spend three days researching 4-shaft table looms and then in the last hour say "screw it" and buy a floor loom instead.

Whenever someone uses the word "lazy", what they actually mean is "doing other things than what I want you to do". It's the peak of control-freak culture.

Is there any thing better than a work meeting that gets cancelled and just vanishes from your calendar?
