This is mostly depressing, but it tells an awful lot about how America "works" -- e.g. why keeping pot illegal has been so heavily in the corporate interest:

I kind of want to write more about it. (Still reading it, though.)

dysphoria is also terrible.

In many, many ways.

Shall I make a list?


I'm on the hunt for reliable, non-biased #news sources for human rights issues. I want to make it a goal to share one positive story and one not-so-positive story a day (maybe to drum up trouble on my facebook >.>).

Also, if you've all got #magazines or other news sources you all follow, throw them at me. I'm a wanna-be-journalist on the hunt for some good publications to stalk for job openings.

Ye gods but the desktop NextCloud client is kind of terrible.

Arrived home from our travels last night, after a blown tire and some worrisome engine noises.

We had a good time, though, and @Harena scored some totally excellent pot in New York.

Let us now put this unfortunate incident behind us.

~~ Julie gazes mournfully ~~

"When are you gonna stop taking photos of me and get back to the skritches? Priorities, *please*."

~~ Julie snuggles my laptop ~~

Julie is very snuggly. She has slept with us both nights so far, and is basically just a large cuddle-toy that finds warmth and occupies it.

Hi, I'm Woozle, and I work for the Soft Toys Division here at the East Coast branch of TootCat Cybernetics Corporation. I hope you're enjoying our wide assortment of Soft Toot Cats!

~~ Kestracel Weiss waits at the car hospital ~~

(That was last night. Apparently she needs at least ~$1300 in work just to get us home; work is now under way. This is the first major batch of repairs we've had to do since the round just after we got her in 2015.)
