Shit, you love to cook and bake, but shit son you are moving and suddenly your stockpile of flour, corn meal, sugar, and non-wheat flours is looming out of the cabinets!! You’re not a fucking commune, you don’t have giant cookware for your giant stove; and suddenly you’re not moving a neigb over you’re doing some state-hopping! What do!?
Okay, so we know what we’ll DO but what will we MAKE?? Ideas:
“Man I guess I should ask if they still live in the same place in Canada…”
“Addressing envelopes is fun! This is easy why did I stop doing this??”
“Uhhhh…wait can “forever” stamps go to canada? I mean they must, how do people send postcards if you had to fill out a customs order for everything?”
“What’s “Global Forever???”
:| grdrmert. /wrong stamps
so i switched back to AbiWord after using OpenOffice for most of the year; not being sloggy and bloated by a word processor is nice.
I also found out you can change the colour of your onscreen “paper”, so I made it eggshell. [nice and duller than pure white] now if only i could replace TNR as the default font…I usually prefer to type in monospace fonts or pixel fonts; because it’s not about “the reader” and it’s purely for me. It’s the digital equivalent of thumb nailing really small.
also after a while of thinking about a thing, I tend to write my notes in code or scribbles. With a different font atleast I can feel subversive without forgetting what something meant a few years later. [really I have text files I don’t quite remember writing that just contain the names of prehistoric fish repeated over and over with a character’s name and all I know is that it was an important revelation.]
just think i could have shared with you all my overblown annoyance at ppl calling .exe files “apps” but instead you get this prattle.
People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
This is really interesting and a total turn around from last I heard about Target’s stance on LGB & T campaigns and employment. I guess I’m skeptical to go “woo corporation suddenly changing ways as market acceptability shifts” when I saw other trans ppl loose their jobs at Target, that whole anti-gay debacle a few years ago….
It’s good that these things change, I guess I just don’t see it as anything to really be happy at Target about.

i’ve been hard at work brainstorming some interesting pin-up characters so here’s a sketch of one of the many character designs i’ve been thinking about. she’s not quite finished design wise but i’m thinking the fact that she’s a curb-stompingly kawaii bear girl made of honey might make up for this.
“she’s a curb-stompingly kawaii bear girl made of honey”
this is the best thing.
[I looked at them drippies and was like “that looks like honey…” and thought about those slime-people who mould their bodies that @theveryworstthing also drew and looked at the ears and was like “oh I guess she’s a slime” but no. it rlly was honey. a honeybear ;x;]
