To anyone who still gets Starbucks while also living in the coffee capital of america: love yourself, go pay a smaller shop to brew you one, come on.

A German teacher I planned to engage has just broken up with me before we had the first lesson. All the evidence I need that I am a lost cause. 😬 I wish they could write me a reference which I could use as a legitimate proof.

Dear computer nerd-y people, please help me find my dream keyboard:

- Cherry brown switches
- Wireless (bluetooth or otherwise)
- replaceable keycaps or funky keycap options
- ships to Germany from within the EU

Thanksgiving, Decolonization, Hawaii 

Aloha means decolonization of your illegitimate slavery, genocide and exploitation-backed empire, that sends body bags to indigenous communities, and continues to arrest, lock-up, and impoverish Native Hawaiians like me, even as homeless of Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders explodes in pandemic.
It's not dancing fake versions of our hula, giving rich tourists lei on airplanes with fake Hawaiian ladys, and serving your poi for $7.50 / hr while living in ghetto.

Vegan Recipe request 

Hi!

So every year I test drive a #Vegan #recipe for my vegan parents, and this year I'd like to try a casserole (usually I do soups, but for some reason my dad doesn't like soup).

Anyone have a recipe for me to start with?

Ideally it would:

* have a minimum of specialty ingredients

* be umami

* be tolerably easy to make.

Boosts welcome!

Name that tune, jazz 

All right, I've played this and should know its name, but I don't. Who recognizes it?

I feel like this has roots in New Orleans but wasn't played like NOLA the way I learned it. But give that bass line to a tuba, put the right rhythms behind it, and it sounds like a second line to me.

If you're waiting for a friend to check in on you, maybe you should check in on them.

Life is complex and messy and they might be struggling too. This isn't even a 2020 thing.

Germany: You should only allow a qualified electrician to work on your home electrical wiring. If you do it yourself you will lose your insurance!

Also Germany: You expect your apartment to have light fixtures? Ridiculous! Look, there are unmarked, unshielded 240 volt wires sticking out of the walls. Just attach a lightbulb to them with electrical tape or something. You'll figure it out, probably.

Yesterday a friend filmed me playing cello on a pontoon, and then I gave a concert at my university in the evening (to an empty hall + camera- found out the concert link works for a month after the event). It was the best day.

Today is my birthday and I have decided it is perfectly ok to be completely fabulous.

Let's hope you can be fabulous too, whether it's your birthday or your un-birthday.
