Hey if you're in Portland, OR Metro area I'd be happy to:
-teach you sewing skills/projects (I've got a great technique for making menstrual pads, and all the supplies)
-share my unscented laundry soap
-get you into Costco
-let you use my shower, toilet or kitchen
-teach you to make a rope coil basket
-let you use my wifi
-let you use my printer
If you're interested, DM me with your # and I'll message you on Signal!
I made a meme. Please distribute.
Anyone else having an issue where the federated timeline repeats the some 3-4 toots about a dozen times, and when you scroll sometimes the space for a toot goes blank?

I wish there was a way to "view" your most-spoken words (like those apps that make a word cloud for your facebook/twitter posts)
Pretty sure between my partner and I it'd be
"You don't know me"
"Put *that* in your calendar"

Found this site, You . regettingold . com
and it's actually really neat.
I didn't realize I was alive for the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the death of Princess Diana (I thought they were older)
I also thought the Large Hadron Collider "started" in the early 90s, but NOPE I was 18.
It's really neat to see these events within the context of my age.
Pokemon Go, +, personal Show more
Yesterday I spent the day riding the light rail on a stretch that's fairly slow, and playing Pokemon Go.
I managed to hatch 4 eggs, and at various points got off the train to defeat a raid by myself.
So now my problem in the game is that I don't have enough incubators XD

Also in a box was an oooold sketchbook
Inside were custom-designed My Little Pony (from the 90s cartoon designs, not modern).
I drew dragon-style wings on a lot of them.
My partner says they're well-drawn, but horrifying in design.
So I told him I'm gonna put them up around the house.
"Fine, but don't be surprised if I scream and you have to clean up a poo on the stairs"

My mom brought over the last of my stuff from her storage unit, so I was going through it all and sorting what I still want.
There were a few diaries from when I was 13-16. Super cringey, but after much cajoling and reassurances I let my partner read one and he thought it was hilarious. He thinks I should read them aloud for YouTube.
There's one entry from 13 when I thought I was turning into a dragon and I was weighing the pros/cons.
So much cringe.
Neurotypical people: Autistic people have rigid interests, see the world in black and white, and are not very adaptable - unlike us.
Also neurotypical people: My partner won’t let my son have a Peppa Pig lunchbox because it’s pink and pink is for girls.
you know i'm into S&M
(spaghetti & meatballs)
Antagonizing your kids isn't funny, even when it's harmless
world-building project but the twist is we actually get to live there
Saying we shouldn't regulate the capitalism we already have while we also work on abolishing it is akin to saying we shouldn't study symptom relief for cancer patients while we look for a cure.
Yeah, please don't do these things, thanks 😅
A friendly cyberawareness reminder that this Royal Wedding 'Royal Name' meme thing is quite literally asking for the most commonly selected online access/recovery Security Questions.
DON'T FALL FOR IT.
