"making the best of every day" is not about the peaks

it's about the valleys

it's resting, it's healing, it's nourishing

it's collecting tomorrow's spoons

Need financial help, please boost! 

Hey there, my boyfriend and I are both unemployed and we aren’t getting much each month. I’m actively looking for a job and it’s a pretty painful process for me.

The end of this month is going to be a bit rough for us, so a little help would go a long way into making sure we can get groceries for the rest of the month and start the next one on a more stable base

here’s my PayPal: paypal.me/SiphonayAV

Thanks for your help πŸ’—


Hey! I've been on the fedi a while hopping from distro to distro and this is my new home! Hi! I'm MAE-161 (pronoynced like "Mae") (previously known as L4NN-1312 or Lynn) and I'm a pooltoy cat robot who's really into anarchy, hacker culture, furry stuff, math, and weird music. I'm really gay and trans and my pronouns are in my profile. Feel free to say hi! :anarchy:​ :emacs:​ :robot:​

Vaccine news 

Oh and dangerous side effects for all of them appear to be in the "people per million" range, which is considered to be good news.

Vaccine news 

The big news: Merck has dropped out of the vaccine race, due to disappointing Phase I results. This is why we waited so long to start mass vaccination: To avoid giving people shots that don't work.

The bad news: While the English variation appears to be stopped by the Moderna vaccine just as well as old fashioned coronavirus, it appears to be less effective against the South African strain. HOWEVER, they think it should still be enough to stop it anyway, but Moderna is working on a special booster shot that should top up resistance as a third shot. That should be faster since we've seen the other two through safety tests already.

Now the confusing bit; There are LOTS of countries rolling out vaccine from places that aren't done testing, which is generally regarded as rather irresponsible, and we are HOPING they are gathering data as they go so we can find out how well they work

i have no idea what an ikesai is, and at this point, i'm too afraid to ask

How would you cope if the internet suddenly stopped existing?

Just bought my Winter 2020 bsd.network T-shirt. Do you have yours?

Hoping that in spring, once it's warmer, the onesie will be available in my size. :flan_thumbs:​

Pro tip: Free HIV Testing: UK 

In the beginning of the pandemic, and first lockdown in the UK, Public Health England declared that we had an unprecedented chance to get HIV under control, with people being in lockdown and not at risk of spreading it.
If people get tested, and they know if they have it we can reduce the spread.

Unless you've not had any sex at all since you last got tested, I'd highly recommend to do it now, before everything goes back to "normal".

You can get tested for free. It's easy to order, comes in a discreet package, and it's fairly easy to get done.

Do read the instructions before starting though, sincerely someone who stabbed their fingers 3 times today.

you know what they say

you can't make Scotch Woodcock without a lot of Gentleman's Relish

i want to go to bed, but the cat is laying on top of the blankets and i'd have to disrupt him

Anything worth doing is worth doing badly is actually pretty good advice.

A bit of light tidying up is better than waiting until one has the energy to CLEAN ALL THE THINGS.

Writing a lousy version of something one doesn't like is better than waiting until one's figured out how to do it well, etc.

on baking 

i'm at the point where i just add flour until the dough feels right, and it's working out pretty great

also my shaping game is improving... i still think i can do better on bagel holes, but my loaf shaping was the best it has been

dough timing was also good... i think i could've gotten more proofing lift by reducing the primary rise time, but fuck it i'm not getting out of bed before 7am on a Sunday
