being pro-palestine (as we all should be) also includes an understanding of the fact that the enemy is zionism and Not judaism
pinning the occupation of palestine on jewish people not only gives right-wingers/nazis a foothold to spread antisemitic rhetoric but it also erases the work of tens of thousands of pro-palestine jews
60 Minutes aired a segment about closing the gender gap in technology. Their story focused entirely on Code.org and its male founder as a savior of women in tech, without even a passing mention of Girls Who Code and other women-led orgs in the space.
As a Girls Who Code facilitator for multiple years and a woman in tech, hearing this happened frustrates me.
Hey folks, sorry to be that annoying bint again, but @pupper and I are still £200 away from covering February's rent and bills. Yes, I know we're in March already.
Y'all have been wonderful and I'm pretty sure the fediverse has no spare change down the couch cushions anymore, but in case there are any secret rich folks our plight hasn't reached, please can you boost this toot. Thank you I love you goodbye.
tfw you're shown a pop-up ad which includes (along with many other cars, most of which are out of your price-range anyway) the car you bought yesterday.
Unfortunately, it stopped showing it after I clicked on it to make sure it was the same one, so I don't have a screenshot.
Here's the listing, though: https://www.carmax.com/car/17127891

We actually have a minivan now, omfg. No more wondering when the camshaft in the 1995 Subaru is going to explode.
Meet Daisy, the 2010 Odyssey.
The pod bay doors won't open on command.
No, I'm serious. The remote locks and unlocks just fine, but it won't open the automatic doors. DAMMIT HAL I'M GOING TO GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR MAIN DATA BANKS WITH A VERY LARGE AXE AND GIVE YOU A REPROGRAMMING YOU'LL NEVER FORGET, IS THAT CLEAR??

Photo: not quite midway through the trip, before lunch. (It's ok, I was able to extinguish my hair.)

She has also harmed me more directly, but mainly via her absence, or more accurately my reactions to same... and the despair I have been through because of that is a price I am willing to pay.
...but I can't make someone else that I care about pay such a steep price for my happiness, can I.
There has to be a solution.

On the one hand, it looks like this will not be permanent (despite my assumptions last Sunday and Monday morning (https://woozalia.com/wiki/Emoblog/2019/02/24/Grief_II_Journal)). I could probably end it at any time, if I'm reading things right.
On the other, I can't wholeheartedly celebrate that fact (much less accelerate it) because of the emotional harm that the person in question has done to @Harena .That is what needs to be addressed before we can start putting things back together.

Today is another #hypertwins Asheville road-trip day. We'll be leaving as soon as we can get out the door and returning probably after dark.
It'll be the first time in half a year that I'll be doing this without a certain person being kind of on tap via internet, at one end of the trip or the other if not the whole time, to chatter to briefly at rest stops and other in-between moments, and I am definitely feeling that absence.
Went to grocery store, got a bunch of stuff and two large bottles of kitty litter. Everything else fit in the bag I brought, but was carrying the kitty litter.
Got distracted by all the complicated steps (some social, some machine) involved in checking out, and left the kitty litter there.
Pretty sure this is not the first time this has happened, either.

The line moved slowly down the street and if you happened to cross it when there was a punishment hanging there, then you'd get that punishment.
It made me wonder if the kid I knew up the street would get the same punishments as me but a few minutes earlier.

A discussion yesterday about my aversion to angry yelling, and how easy it is to manipulate me by triggering fear of such yelling or anything associated with it, brought up this recollection:
I remember sometime around age 7 my dad saying something like "you're getting close to the line, Woozle!" in a warning voice -- and I suddenly had this idea that there was an invisible string, like a laundry-line, upon which were hung spankings and various other punishments.
not-depression (is actually a thing) Show more
So, um, feeling quite a bit better since yesterday morning. I had a realization which really helped, and then further solid evidence that the RSD-voices were kinda full of it.
When I haven't been dealing with appointments and errands, most of today has been talking about the situation with some auld frens online and finally bringing them up to speed with, like, the last six months of my emotional life.
Hoping to write more soonish.

Even sitting at a keyboard is a trigger now.
How long does this last.
