I started reading Pandemic Solidarity by Colectiva Semrar and the intros are so long?
Like, yeah, it's great, the book itself is a praxis of organizing but this is a bit too much already. It's not talking as much about *how* they organized it but rather how great that they did.

Broke our Sims install with this and tried everything but only creating another system user worked because of course.
Mutable environments are my bane.

I may need to seriously ask for help tomorrow. It’s been a full month since I submitted my first invoice to a contract I started, and I’m still missing $200 of it when the invoice was supposed to be paid within 10 days.

I’ve now sent my second invoice, but really I have no clue when I will get it based on it taking over a month for my last one.

I have, total, $137 in my bank account.

I need to pay $1600 in rent each month. So I am in a tight spot right now until I can get paid.

Hm, so this time I might install it again but there is no new expansion to buy but free chapters?

us pol, br pol, + 

Fedi leftists: "do not celebrate, getting rid of one fascist means nothing and is no help!"

Brazil's fascist president Jair Bolsonaro: "I can't even be bothered to run for re-election now."

Brazil's Workers' Party lawmaker Erika Kokay: "Trump's defeat is a historical defeat of far-right fascists, racists, and deniers of the pandemic and climate change. Hate did not prevail!"

This took more from me than I dare to admit, I was trying basically the same things and they either worked or did not all the time but eventually it just worked?

I don't know anything anymore

@checkervest It's like he's moving his paw over his tummy in the best approximation he can do of the motion he is suggesting we make with our own hands.

It's impossible to take a picture of but here's the closest thing I've got.

Making fun of Trump about his size, body, or eating habits is fatphobic. Those traits aren’t the source of his evil anyway. Be clear about his evil and how it’s NOT related to his body or eating habits.

ok so this sounds stupid, but, uh, where does one buy nice clothes online. without making the world worse or sacrificing my style (whatever that is). i've never done that. wait, i haven't actually bought any clothes in something like 15 years, except for the occasional trip to the thrift store. most of what i wear is from the street and self-tailored. shit, i don't even know how sizes and all that work. aw fuck i guess i need someone to hold my hand and go online-shopping with me

apparently, the reason why @Tusky was succumbing to Unicode Bidi exploits (e.g. forcing text outside of usernames, etc. to display right-to-left) was not because they weren't trying to do things right, but because Google's Unicode implementation is just wrong. huge thanks to @Tak for fixing it in the code after I helped point out how to fix this!

Concert practice - cello 

Last night's late practice, which was followed by a good soak in the bath, and magically sleep. (not a lot, but still - sleep!) My antidote to election doom scrolling - (it was just after Michigan declared)

-and also concert prep! 19th of Nov. (I am SO lucky to be able to play alongside my job at university - especially with the lockdown - just me + piano + camera in concert - no other people) This is Shostakovich from mvt 4 of his cello sonata. #cello #livemusic #music

should have came today/yesterday but they didn't even pack it yet
