I have yet to see something as fragile as masculinity.
Trimmed back @ 6 months of beard growth this morning. I'm feeling a little lightheaded.
Oddly enough, as soon as I sent that she stood up and leapt away.
I need to go and do things today, but cancer kitty is sleeping in the crook of my arm.
Binx (my cat, who is dying from breast cancer), wanted to snuggle, so I held her until she wanted to go elsewhere.
Now in addition to the bloody shirt that I expected, I have a cramp in my arm.
Remember to stretch before holding your cat.
After careful consideration (and use of power tools), I've decided my budget end table that survived 17 years and 4 moves should be trashed as opposed to repaired.
I COULD repair it, but the energy/time required to do so would add up to more than I originally spent on it, both IRT money and initial assembly time.
We all suffer from wear and tear. It shows us who we are.
Apparently spider plants can bloom. Did not expect that, especially with how bad I am at keeping plants alive. https://aaronbsmith.com/photos/2017/07/11/spider-plant-flowers/

"How long before you think it's time for euthanasia?"
"Honestly I'm suggesting it now."
The older of my two cats has breast cancer. At vet's suggestion we are trying pain meds to make her more comfortable. Pain meds could cause kidney failure, but only if the tumor doesn't kill her first.
It isn't about me, it's about her quality of life. Even so, it's almost time.
At least this time I get to say goodbye properly.
Listening to This Week in Tech Episode 622. Less than 10 minutes in and I think it's one of the best episodes I've heard, though I expect the people who need to hear it the most deleted that one. (CW: Sexism) Thank you, @leo
Friend's Surgery Show more
A friend's wife (She's a friend, too, but I'm closer to the husband) is in the hospital for gallbladder surgery and while she's relatively healthy otherwise and it's a low risk procedure for most people I can't stop thinking that that's EXACTLY the problem my wife went in for ... then never came home.
I'm not in a good place at all, mentally, which makes me feel guiltier because none of this should be about ME.
"Hello, I am a bot following everyone to improve the view of the fediverse of my instance, thank you :)"
Is this creative federation, a way around instance silencing, or something else?
1. I know it's always been that way, but when you tend to see it so much more on one side of the bell curve, it takes you for a loop when you see it on the other.
2. In the conversation I was citing, pointing out that they were using appeals to emotion to refute a scientific study were rebutted with "I'm being HONEST." More than once, IIRC.
