I haven't social-mediaed in my own name since... since... I think since I shuttered Book of Trogool. Which was a while ago.
(Editorializing for LJ doesn't quite count. Not social media exactly.)
But what the hey, let's give it another whirl. It'll be interesting to see who uses it to try to take me down THIS time.
This calendar year I have dealt with
- my divorce
- four new-prep classes (FSCKING FOUR, Y'ALL, IT'S A LOT OF WORK)
- one more major-revision class
- trying (and failing, but still trying) to hold up my end of Data Doubles
- Jail Library Group obligations
- the not-a-merger-with-CS
- RADD stuff
- the Distinguished app (also a lot of work, though yay! result!)
Can't imagine why I don't want to informally-lead the GetFTR fight.
So my exciting thing for the day was laying my bike down while turning a corner through a bunch of wet leaves. I'm basically fine (bruises, road rash, possibly-sprained thumb) and bike is probably fine and in the hands of Mobile Bike Guy.
But I do not recommend this course of action. It's rather painful.
HELLvetica. Like helvetica, but with like, much shittier kerning for Halloween.

#psa You should probably stop using Startpage.com as a search engine.
#Startpage appears to have sold out to a company called "System1" who are a "pay-per-click behavioral ad company"
Please boost for exposure.
