I feel like this may be one of the most important things I wish I didn't need to say (but I do) :

If you experience harassment in a space I'm in:
- If I'm an organiser, you WILL be heard and supported.
- If I'm not an organiser, and you need support or another voice, I'm there.

One thing I _love_ about the neighbourhood I live in is that it's normal to leave stuff out for free so others can take it if they wish. It took 20 minutes to find new homes for two old flatscreen monitors today, and previously we also recycled a treadmill and a hair curling iron

I feel like I have cotton wool in my ears and my hearing is somewhat impaired right now. Went to sit outside and I can hear the annoying children playing outside just fine 🀣😭

I managed to get an infection in one ear a couple of days ago and I can now feel it has spread to my other ear. The pain has been interrupting my sleep for the past few nights, so... screw this, I'm going to bed.

A birdie just clonked onto the window! Can't see it on the floor so I guess it was well enough to fly away.

Rambling thoughts about names again. I've shared some sometimes but it was on my brain this morning for some reason. I introduce myself as Yo in English-speaking scenarios because it's easier than watching people try to figure out how to pronounce it, but...

I can't find my blocking wires. Should I buy new knitpro wires, knit blockers, something else entirely?

Was embl founded in heidelberg because of homo heidelbergensis or was that a cute coincidence?

Capitals are too much for me today

It gets better.

(Being a teenager sucked just as much as they said it would, maybe more - being old enough to choose my own fate a few years later fixed a lot).

Having a house with a second floor...

My wife grew up thinking that having water/ice dispensers IN THE FRIDGE DOOR was a life goal.

I grew up thinking if you had a basketball hoop with a clear/plexiglass backboard, you were rich.

What are some things you thought were indicators of wealth when you were a kid?

Debating a second slightly salty subtweet and clearly I need to go eat breakfast.

Hm, watching someone attack another person for having an Ed.D degree rather than PhD, and for using Dr while "obscuring they have an Ed.D"

I regularly refer to my EngD-in-progress as a PhD because people know what it is.

I wonder how much crap I will have to put up with.

The replies are faaaabulous, but I think my favourite is The Boxer quote

May your day be blessed with furry cat tummies.*

Hey internet, I forgot to tell you about my dream last night - I went to @JasonWilliamsNY@twitter.com's place and saw a tube of glue that was so goshdarned appealing... I opened it and ate a huge mouthful.

Wat. @JasonWilliamsNY@twitter.com I should probably blame you?

WOOHOO!
