New Instance, newly-edited #introductions post:
Hi, I'm Pamela! I live by a great lake (well, it's alright). I really love animals and have a pet turtle and cats. I like to learn new things and work with my hands. I like ecology, #STEM, #gameing, #openbsd, books and nature, and I enjoy painting but don't spend enough time doing it.
I have #agoraphobia and write about that pretty regularly, now, as well as my experiences with microwork.
way of eating, seeking advice, keto
So I've been on keto and it's making all my joints hurt less and I'm not hungry as per usual so I'm pretty happy!
But usually when I do this I'm picking out my own vegetables and can buy avocados and broccoli and whatever else and look at all the labels. Right now, I'm using the grocery pickup service instead. It's getting hard to get food to make my normal weekly plans because they'll give me substitutions I can't have or produce about to go bad or whatever. And I'm not quite getting the right nutrients in... I'm low on potassium for sure and probably other stuff.
So I was thinking about trying out keto cycling and using that as a way to push certain nutrients, have some meals with things that keep well like banana and quinoa and lentils to top up. I'm already fully fat-adapted and can bounce in and out pretty comfortably, but I wonder about the psychological effects, and whether hydration levels yank up and down. Anyone with experience have thoughts?
Capping off this day of fediverse drama by going on my regular trawl to make sure we've suspended all the instances which my instance has seen use anti-semitic, racist or transphobic emoji I know by shortcode because if you're using them, we don't need to know you
I hope everyone has enjoyed "bet you didn't know quite how many admins have been frustrated for a long time now but love their communities enough to put up with it" day
Been trying my new skin thingies designed by a hospital in South Korea. As expected, extremely non-irritating, no scents, no coloring.
The first is the Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner, which is mostly milk vetch extract. It's just a watery workhorse toner (in the non-western sense, which is to say it's a light moisture source to reduce pH after cleansing, just a nice calming drink for your skin). Absorbs nicely, non-sticky and subtle anti inflammatory action.
The other is the Pyunkang Yul Intensive Repair Cream. Lighter than it sounds, I bought it because my skin was irritated. I do not like it on dry skin; use it to seal in the toner or other moisture. Has some goodies including ceramides and copper tripeptides (my new love, my skin misses them when they're gone). This would be a holy grail item for me if it weren't in a damn jar. No fingers in jars!
Together these are $35, will last a long time, nice potential gift set because they're universal formulas. Cream contains shea butter so avoid with latex allergy.
They should let you torrent PS4 games from people on your friends lists, I'm sure someone owns this even with my like 6 total Playstation friends
I am downloading my first Assassin's Creed game because believe it or not, I actually got slightly bored after blowing up tankers by headbutting them and making people cry as a goat in Goat Simulator.
I hope I get to make people cry in this one snd break all their windows, too, but I would like a break from all the tongue lassoing.
So my cute swingy A-line dress I posted about? Probably less than 15 people outside of the house have still even seen it, since I am usually staying in the car when we go places.
And yet it received its third compliment yesterday. :D the lady at the Pearle was enamored of the blue variant and stopped paying attention to what I was actually saying.
I think for a lot of us this dress is like what the fashionable ladies in comic books wore when we were kids. There's a retro fantasy component to that flared silouhette.
Anyway that was very nice.
My carbohydrate intake prior to dinner had genuinely been 0g so yeah I had broccoli but I also had two onion rings and they were goooood
We went on a nice drive and then collected my two new drawing pens on the way back in. They don't smear any less readily than the microns but at least they feel a little better to hold. I like that matte plastic that feels kind of powdery to the touch. I should figure out what that is.
Lol, we have a king mattress (which is nearly square but off by like 4") and just turn it sideways periodically as part of rotation so it tends to slide away from the wall as part of not quite fitting.
So every night we rescue any stuffed friends which fell behind and then push the mattress back against the wall and put the pillows up and stuff.
At least I thought "we" did it. I just tried to do it alone while Kurt was carrying out my ridiculous amount of recycling and couldn't budge it even a little. XD he's been faking on me!
