if your cat often bothers you at your computer and walks all over your keyboard, it's because they're trying to join you and do what you're doing. It's a sign of affection!

there needs to be a premade choose-your-own-adventure childhood generator you can use if you need to stay stealth about your agab/past abuse/etc.

Just type in who you are and why you're using it and it'll be like "this is what you did for birthdays as a kid. here is one (1) cute anecdote about your family. these is how you felt about your boy scout troop that you were totally actually in because you were 100% definitely AMAB."

so i commissioned something from @scoots a while back to go with the Mel stories and it's finally here and i love it! look at these two dorks! 😈

Sup, nerds. Wanna buy some software on floppy disks? Of course you do. That's why I'm selling msync, my command line mastodon client, on floppies! I have builds for Linux, OSX, and Windows ready to ship.

And if floppies aren't your thing, I have these lovely Office of Consensus Maintenance stickers, too.

I accept orders by internet, fax, and mail.

IRS Form W-4 is changing. Starting in tax year 2021, employees are no longer required to claim a specific number of transmisogyny exemptions.
