i work in a skyscraper, so i bought a pocket scope. the Terrible River offers many for around $20; and the one i bought is fine except that it arrived _reeking_ of solvents. i worry i am now complicit in some kid having leukemia
i didn't buy one of the scopes with the convenient camera adapters, but on its first use in the field, i couldn't resist mashing the scope against my phone. so here it is, the best photo of the Space Needle you'll see all day
politics, angry Show more
struggling to process anger from yesterday's head tax vote. every petit bougie dirtbag and neoliberal "solutions" dipshit came out to fight a compromise to a compromise. they were so much more angry about taxes than about people freezing on the street, _even if they themselves wouldn't be taxed_. class enemies & class traitors from hell to breakfast.
still, it was a victory. we'd have got nothing if we hadn't fought. this was one battle in a long class war. back to the front.
i drove a car today for the first time in about 18 months. i still know how, sorta, but it's stressful. it's a skill worth having, but i'm glad that my life doesn't require me to do this daily.
for me, the struggle for housing justice & for the right to the city is the struggle for the right not to drive, the right not to _have_ to own a car, the right to not _have_ to endanger my own and others' lives on a daily basis. that is, inescapably, what driving is - until we have self-driving cars.

Was looking through my various projects, and found this, which I had mostly forgotten about. It's probably still not "finished" by any means, but I don't think I'm gonna work on it any more, so I did some basic cleanup and exported it out of inkscape. Iirc I showed various WIPs of it off a bunch on my old .social account.
I figure it's better to "release" it to some extent, rather than let it languish in a mostly forgotten folder forever ^^

bad thoughts Show more
being alone for three hours while i prepare to do something important is some grim, ugly shit. whether or not it's warranted, i feel little self-worth or trust in my own competence or even intentions in this moment. it'll get better when i'm out in the world.
how did i ever think that i was cut out to be a hermit? that would be the most destructive course i could take. probably it was fear of other people talking.

Henlo frens-- A dear friend of mine needs your help!
Her name is Natasha; she's disabled and trans, living in the DC area. She lost her job shortly after the car wreck that took the regular use of her legs from her. But good news!! It sounds like she's about to be extended a job offer that should get her financially stable again! She's way short on rent this month though and could really use some help!
Boosts are very much appreciated ♥️

i had a dream where i was buying expensive lingerie so a specific hot monster dude would fuck me and _successfully haggling on the price_ while presenting masc. that is more confidence than i will ever have
also i'm fairly sure i did it with the hot monster dude near the end of the dream
loved ones and friends who worry i am not taking care of myself, please be proud of me. i wrapped up my political commitment at 7:30 instead of 9, and i am taking the early bus home while rereading all of _Andre and Karl_ :)
