Fun fact: the Anarchist's Cookbook is actually just a collection of vegan dessert recipes.

I should be at GDC right now, but instead, I'm still in Oakland quietly consuming coffee and impressing cute baristas with my clever t-shirts. :blobcat:

No GDC parties for me tonight. Still exhausted from speaking up in that unionization roundtable.

On the bright side, at least my birbsite account is getting some use.

really enjoyed @squinky's talk at gdc today—I love hearing people break down their creative choices especially in the context of expectations about how the work is received and perceived #gdc #gdc18

I just want to say that it's such a relief when I meet another person and can drop the act of having to look at them while we're speaking to each other.

Just woke up from a dream where I was looking for the French Canadian dub of steamed hams, and now I actually want to find it.

Ate a burrito immediately upon landing in SF. It's been forever since I had a decent burrito. I am pleased.

Goodness, this interview with Daniel Mallory Ortberg is giving me all the "yep, me too" gender feels.

It occurs to me that it's the second year in a row that Montreal has had a pi day snowstorm.

Who the heck called it "testosterone" and not "eau de bro"?

PSA: stop automatically lumping nonbinary people in with women. We understand that you're trying to be inclusive by acknowledging that we exist, and that's cool, but treating us as just a subcategory of women is thoughtless and lazy.

I just wanted to say that I'm still very much in love with this blobby cat emoji, who makes everything better :blobcat:

Being in my thirties has, in one sense, brought stronger self-acceptance, but with that comes a shrinking of my perceived possibility space.

Like, I have a better handle on what my strengths and weaknesses are, but I also miss believing, for instance, that I could one day run my own successful game company, you know?

Content isn't "free" when there are ads. The longer I work in advertising, the more this idea that content w/ads is "Free" bothers me. It's not free at all. You're paying for it with your time and attention to sponsored content, and how that content then drives you to take actions. It's not "free."

The fifth annual Gender Census is now open until 1st March 2018!

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's pretty short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business, and self-advocacy.
