@bstacey Discord's out cold, too (at least on the US East Coast, see my previous toot) -- but most everything else seems fine. (There was one other site we found which seemed to be having problems, but it seems to have recovered.)
Good news: I have a job offer!
Bad news: I'm too broke to take it, but if I don't, I lose my unemployment for refusing a job. It's in Rochester NY, about 4 hours away. I need $60 for the Amtrak ticket, cash for cheap food until I get a paycheck, and a couch to crash on until I can get a furnished room. I have #maille for sale, and donations are also an option, although I have a hard time just asking for money. https://paypal.me/tarlimanjoppos or cash.app/$tarlimanjoppos #pride #lgbtqa #furry #leather
"Doctor, my yawns keep turning into the opening guitar riff from 'Magic Man'. Is that healthy?"
"Hmm, could indicate a Heart problem..."

@brion Now I want to take a photo of all our boxes and boxes full of VHS recordings of TV shows from the 1990s, solely to illustrate that filk.
The internet was a loose collection of spaces - mostly BBSes, web forums, journal sites etc - that were run by individuals and teams who actively moderated them. For decades. It's safe to assume someone who looks at the idea of moderated instances and acts flabbergasted is being disingenuous if they were born before like 2008.
YO! PSA time!
I'm a psychiatric nurse practitioner, means I prescribe and manage psych meds, I'm a trans poly queer that likes helping out the folks who have less of a share of the pie than the rest. You got some medical questions? You got some psych question specifically? Feel free to hit me up for some free-ass informal advice! Consider it a perk of being not a white cishet!
3. What is your greatest weakness?[...] Don’t lie, but instead prepare to answer with a “weakness” that’s actually a strength. Say, “I am a perfectionist who is always striving for excellence, even when it means I push myself too hard on a project.” Or “I’m driven to make my team the best, most successful sales team. This means the people working for me need to have aspirational goals as well.”
These behaviors are ones that will be perceived as strengths, assuming they are what’s needed in the role you will be playing.
@lightdark I am now socially secure, it says here!
US WWII internment of Japanese-ancestry citizens, immigration meta Show more
and yet, right now, ICE is doing the exact same things to another people group.
Where is the understanding that the US is actively crossing the same lines people fought and died to re-draw barely a generation ago?
..."never again" rings empty until every single detainment centre is ripped from its foundations and every child is freed.
climate change, nationalism/racism Show more
Whoops, someone said the quiet part out loud. This explains everything about the responses to Flint, Katrina, and Maria. Walling off climate change refugees is the real reason for southern border security. The rest of the world, including Europe, Africa, and Asia (especially India) will pay for the desire of certain Americans to continue their lifestyle of extreme over-consumption unchecked. Question is, what are we going to do about it?

2. some book of poetry by Yeats
I'm probably forgetting a lot.
