Watching interviews/ reaction vids with tattooers working in the US & am horrified by these stories of people being too drunk to sit, or throwing up etc.
When I got my last tat I was instructed to eat and drink enough, not to have alcohol or even take aspirin for 48hrs before coming in. And that I would lose my deposit if I showed up drunk.
Gotta say, I prefer that to sitting next to some puking kid that clears the whole shop with drunk antics....
Am I old?^^
This is a beautiful piece about queer art in Athens, and it really makes me hopeful...
How Athens’ art scene became a hub of queer resistance
Remember today to thank people for continuing to stand up for everyone despite facing hate every day.
Remember to show support to the ones marginalized until this day, even within the community: BPOC queers, trans people, especially trans women, disabled queer people, queer sex workers..
Give them a smile, a hug, and thank them for continuously standing up for everybody's rights!
this is not a party day, it's a fighting day!
🌈 HAPPY PRIDE, EVERYONE! 🏳️🌈
Let me take this opportunity to remind us all that
👏 Stonewall 👏 was 👏 a 👏 riot! 👏
Also remember that the modern gay liberation movement didn't start in 1968, but decades earlier in Berlin, where Magnus Hirschfeld's Scientific-Humanitarian Committee advocated for trans and gay rights.
This work was snuffed out by the Nazis, and we still mourn the loss of all that had been done to this day.
puppy, death Show more
I requested she be cremated and ashes be sent to me (the owner just left her at the vet's it seems), also x-rays, and autopsy results, so I am hoping to at least eventually understand what happened.
At the very least she will be close to me again.
This feeling that I failed her... horribly... terminally... and that it cost her her precious life will be with me forever.
After something like that, how do you trust anyone enough to send another dog from your care?
puppy, death Show more
Today I learned that a pup I rescued and that was rehomed to Finland was put down... and nobody can tell me why.
Seems like the owner didn't hesitate (this all happened in one vet visit), didn't ask for treatment options, didn't get a second opinion.
My little Lumi who I managed to nurse back to health from a bad, bad state... is gone because some human didnt let my friend in Finland take her back, and didnt want to wait even a day before killing her.
Ask me again why I hate humans.
Kubuntu Show more
Considering trying Kubuntu. What's the thinking out there in the mastoverse, any good? I like that minimal version I think.
Thought the encrypted containers also looked good!
xubuntu sleep mode/suspend issues (kinda solved) Show more
Sooo, time for an update here. Today I got some help from a friend.
We tried a variety of things (BIOS update, editing grub.cfd, god knows what else), but one of them was switching sleep mode to Linux in BIOS menu. Which seems obvious (once you know that is a thing).
It's still not working for me, but we are almost certain that's the kfce now. I might switch to a different distro eventually.
But yay, I learned some things today and sleep mode kinda works)
On a completely different note, I ordered a ukulele today. Hoping that it arrives before the weekend so I can learn a couple songs to entertain my doggos 🎸
I also realize that it will be hard to ever find a partner again, unless it's you and you are into
- weird obsessions
- dogs, dogs, so many dogs all the time (aka animal rescuing)
- cuddling with dogs
- dealing with anxious me
- books, many books
- possibly ukuleles
- odd people
- Queen (the band)
- Hackers (the movie)
- probably other weird things

I am livepinging this now.
So, managed to format, but then couldn't write to USB. Reformatted, changed write permissions, can write to USB.
But now my car's radio gives me a USB error - doesn't like the format.
So reformatting now and send good thoughts that I figure this out somehow before I have to leave for a longish drive WITHOUT MUSIC. (aaaaahhh!)
(I am working and it's 35 degrees. I need some fun in my life. *puts on fan)
my body & its weird period tastes Show more
I realized my body is (nonconsensually, might I add!) period-edging me.
Keeping you feeling like any hour now you'll start bleeding but for... weeks... is not cool. At all.
This is excellent! Gloves that translate sign language into sound to facilitate communication with people who don't know sign language - let's have more of that, please?
