Just finished drafting a super cool paper with my old advisor about hardware and software in the garment industry. The goal is to get platform capitalism and new media theory people to think about knitting :BallOfYarn: πŸ–₯️
It's been a real pleasure to develop. Hope I can share it soon!

I have gained a wife and lost half my shirts

I'm beginning to realize that one of the biggest consequences of my partner transitioning is that I now have less clothes than before.

somebody once told me
you're gonna wake up hungry
don't eat the plums i left in the fridge

in the morning i was dumb
and my tongue was kinda numb
so i foraged around for some breakfast

well the plums start coming and they don't stop coming
once you eat one you just can't stop plumming
don't stop to think till they're all gone
i think oh shit you've done it now shaun
so much to eat so much to chow
why did i go for the plums now
i'd better leave a good note
so here's the thing that i wrote

Partner:
Me: DID YOU KNOW THAT TWO OF THE USWCC PLAYERS ARE ENGAGED TO EACH OTHER? AND THAT ONE WHO WASN'T EVWN OUT JUST CASUALLY WALKED UP TO THE STANDS AFTER WINNING THE WORLD CUP AND KISSED HER GIRLFRIEND???

My apartment of 4 years is mourning my leaving by springing a leak from its ceiling. Me too buddy.

*sobbing* Please, sir, my hog is so dry, please.

Gazing over the frolicking passel of glistening hogs, I dust off my hands and smile. "And all with no money sent," I whisper, and shed a single tear.

So the job talk/interview went really well! It was surprisingly... social? Fun, even? It's like a 1 day conference organized around you. Lots of neat people to meet and chat with about your research, the field(s), pedagogy...

May all your aca job interviews be nice folks!

A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

It is too late. The Evacuation still proceeds, but it's all theatre... Above him lift girders old as an iron queen, and glass somewhere far above that would let the light of day through... He's afraid of the way the glass will fallβ€”soonβ€”it will be a spectacle: the fall of a crystal palace.
