#introductions I don't know what I am, but I'm here.
I write a lot about feelings (especially grief) and dissolving the plutonomy. I code; I record original music; I build shelves; I pull out wisteria; I parent; I friend.
In suspended transition from 2000-2016, struggling towards transgirl since then.

I found the paperwork.
The account number isn't there either.
The only statement I have (7/16) is digital (PDF); it has the account number redacted, all except the last 4 digits.
I've seen this before, where they only include the full number on the *mailed* statement.
...which is kind of bad thinking, because that's more likely to end up in the wrong hands than a file I download from a site I have to log into.
...but maybe the one they actually mail me will have the whole number.

I've solved the mystery of the questionable transaction, at least.
This card is an upgrade from a CareCredit card, which you can only use in certain places (mainly medical). Just before the beach trip, they suddenly decided to upgrade it to a MasterCard.
The mystery charge is the balance transfer from the old CareCredit account.
Maybe the card number is somewhere on the paperwork that came with the new card, but I don't know where that is either.
Pretty sure I didn't toss it.

This is all now hugely complicated by the fact that I can't actually *find* the card in question, and don't remember when I last saw it.
But only that one charge (on July 5) is questionable, and it's nowhere near being the most recent charge, and the last charge was on July 10. so I don't think the card has been stolen.
I hate my brain sometimes.
I do vaguely remember a day where it seemed like all my cards were falling everywhere.
It could have fallen out in any store since 7/10.
May I have some words with the people who designed the Inkscape interface?
odd ccard charge Show more
Saw this on my credit card statement, and am trying to figure out what it could possibly be:
"00000000000ATRECV BALANCE TRANSFER 6019 1832 5851 5642"
It's for $107+, and I don't remember anything like that -- but it's on the day we were driving down to the beach, and I used that card for a lot of stuff, so it *could* be.
I just don't remember that amount or anything that might be "ATRECV"... and "BALANCE TRANSFER"?? And then, like, a Discover Card number?
I wish I'd known about Prime Day sooner -- I definitely would have made a push to get #tootcat's media off Amazon before it started.
Looks like it's on through Wednesday -- but I expect tomorrow's going to be pretty busy, at least in the morning. I have no idea what Wednesday will be like.
(cis person voice) but, but how can two agender people date? surely the gender has to come from _somewhere_!
Here's a thing I haven't done in ages: did you know you can buy my book of cyberpunk gonzo travel musings around the world? https://www.bookdepository.com/Embed-with-Games-Cara-Ellison/9781846973444

i just inherited a Windows 2000 PC that was still being used as of about a year ago, and never had any problems.
I feel like it needs a shrine.
Will try to put up some screenshots or something, after I get it hooked up.
Amber update + Show more
Amber will be staying with a close friend of @eryn's, in Oregon. A plane ticket has been purchased. Said friend did an amazing job finding an affordable ticket, and will be driving down to Seattle to pick Amber up early Friday morning.
I'm paying for the ticket, and covering what is looking like a large rent-gap for the first month; hopefully Amber will be able to get a job there soon and be self-supporting after that.
I'm thinking I should maybe do a crowdfunder for this.
An interview with Rebecca Sugar, creator of #StevenUniverse:
She talks about how the Gems are coded as female but are nonbinary, and explicitly says she is a nonbinary woman herself. It legit brought happy tears to my eyes.
Bwaha! I finally found the *previous* battery for this laptop. It didn't have much life left but from what I recall, it at least could hold a few minutes of charge, which is better than 0.00 minutes.
It claims to be at 75%. I'm skeptical, but I have almost 2 hours before I have to go anywhere, so it'll have a chance to get at least some actual charge in it.
