Yesterday someone told me that my pics read really hard as FEMME DYKE, and I am just going to feed off that compliment for the rest of my life.

It also called out adult Lego fans for building elaborate display pieces instead of letting kids play with them like the toys they're meant to be.

I think a huge reason that movie drew so much respect is that you rarely see media based on a toy line that even acknowledges a meta level to that product's existence, let alone explores it.

Ever think how wild it is that the Lego company green-lit a movie that equated their building instructions with fascism

The Curiosity Shop was aptly named.

Despite being located right by the bus-stop across from my school, it suffered surprisingly few minor-based mischiefs. That should have been my first clue.

As soon as I was old enough, I applied to work there after classes. I didn't know where the owner got the stock, but I loved being able to look them over as I shelved.

Right before college, the owner vanished, or rather, somehow I got the title.

Every day
You walk with stronger step
You walk with longer step
The worst is over.

ADHD meds 

@AudreyJune mood. Doctor keeps asking if the side effects of the Adderall are bothering me. "Well, sure, so I sometimes forget to eat anything for so long I get dizzy. But that is a problem I can solve with technology! I already rely on my phone for much of my daily life, what is one more set of reminders?

Totally worth being able to think!

Also, i mean, I accidentally almost a week without Adderall in December, and it was the absolute worst black depression I have ever had so, yeah, definitely have an addiction here too."

@netkitty ::hugs tight:: I lost one of mine yesterday, and need lots of kitten cuddles.

animal death 

@randomHydrogen no. Our oldest cat needs euthanasia today, metastasized pancreatic cancer.

trans health 

Trans people: Hey medical community could we have more scientific studies on the medication we're taking so it can be safer for us?

Doctors: Lol no, no one cares about you.

Cis public: OMG these trans people are out of control, they're taking medication that hasn't got any studies behind it

Quaint! It's the year 2250 but this bakery still makes its bread in a traditional factory dating back to 2020.

"We believe in tradition," says the owner.

Dollops of dough travel through a maze of conveyor belts, gradually turning into bread loaves as they are sent into a series of traditional gas-powered 500-capacity ovens and glazers.

"We have a lot of respect for our ancestors who put hard work into monitoring the equipment and QCing each loaf."

Inspiring

@xenophora @AudreyJune oh, for sure, but the long-form platform seemed to allow for more nuance than does today's microblogging everything...

I mean, even mastodon has a pretty short limit on character count.

@emma @AudreyJune I am pretty sure I could have trained a cat to wear it correctly by now.
