Finally organised my cookbooks, will this be the year I finally work through some of Grandma Rose's recipes?

So if I switch instances which instance should I switch to?

Just got back from Greenbelt and I feel so wrecked omg

Ahhh just had the loveliest time talking about eunuchs and the bible with lots of kind and thoughtful people who turned up to my Greenbelt session

I’ve wanted to find more mediums of self expression. For the past few months I’ve been painting, embroidering and hand making silk flowers and mint leaf beetles to recreate storybook scenes from my early life.

Ended up on the same train as a million teenagers heading to Reading; shout out to the girl who's already necking a bottle of rose

In olden times, when people tended to spend their whole lives in one small area, people didn't know yet that birds migrated south for the winter. So they came up with a lot of ideas. Swallows lived under the sea for half the year. Other birds moved to the moon during that time. But my personal favorite was the claim that geese died off every year, and then grew again on trees in the spring.

Gerald of Wales even claimed to have seen this himself, bc the 1100's were good times for shitposting.

This is a selfies only account now, sorry tooters

enjoy this Russian meme that I think basically translates to “sight of cat, grace of potat”, every time I look at it it gets a bit funnier

I feel like it's time to admit that we never, ever checked out even one person's SoundCloud

Power and proximity to power are a mess, basically, and I guess I'm trying to work out at the moment how to find ways to figure out how to handle the power I have and my desire for more power without just refusing it out of a desire for innocence (because if you don't recognise the power you do have you sure as hell aren't going to use it well)

But I also think a lot about a piece I read about how the Internet is no fun any more because people's online identities increasingly overlap with their offline and work lives and I can definitely feel the ways that has changed my social media experience, and also the lure of ~having a platform and knowing other people who have platforms
