@relee - I'm an unpassable transwoman whose transition has gone very badly. Second Life allows me to have a pretty normal body and, as I often semi-jokingly say, "allows me to be ignored."
This Week's Meals roundup:
Koshari: Carb-o-rama (60g per Jenn-sized serving) but given that it has rice, vermicelli AND macaroni, I kinda expected it to be. BUT HOLY COW THAT'S GOOD. The tomato sauce and the hot spices make this so so so tasty. I liked it so much, I don't even mind the chickpeas. Would totally make this again.
Kuku Choma: Essentially African spicy hot wings. Needs salt, but is pretty tasty. They need to be grilled, and I ended up using my broiler and a grating to grill these. Might be better if (1) I grill them correctly and (2) get them to near blackened like the picture showed them to be.
Spaghetti "Carbonara." Eh, it's good and tasty. Absolutely Spaghetti Carbonara. But with the fusion elements of miso, sesame seeds and sea weed just not coming across in the flavor, Il'll just make regular Spaghetti Carbonara next time. It's cheaper and tastes just as good.
Forgot to mention that after I had the asthma test, I hit Kura Revolving Sushi. Expensive, but very good sushi, lots of variety and a neat little robot guy who serves you your drinks. Ticket taking is moslty automated, as are the menus. Lots of tech. :)
A little spendy, but I'll take what I can get now that Sushiland is gone.
Heart: WHY AREN'T WE LOOKING FOR WORK?!
Brain: We are. We've dried up this week's leads, we're just waiting on responses, and we'll apply as soon as more leads pop up. In the meantime, why don't you--
Heart: WHY AREN'T WE LOOKING FOR WORK?! I DON'T WANT TO BE HOMELESS AGAIN.
Brain: We're FINE, heart. We've got until March before we even need to start worrying. Why don't we use this time to see about getting that writing career started that you--
Heart: WE'RE GOING TO SPEND YEARS UNEMPLOYED AND YOU AREN'T LOOKING FOR WORK. WHY AREN'T WE LOOKING FOR WORK?
Brain: ::sigh:: Why do I even try....
If you've only ever used Mastodon through an app, you might want to try using it through your server's website too.
Each server has its own website which you can use your account on. To access the web version, just go to your web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc) on any phone or computer and type the address of your server. Log in with the same ID and password as you do on the app.
For example, if your account is on the server mas.to, you can log in on its website https://mas.to.
And honestly, the most radicalizing thing of all has been the indifference of the privileged and the powerful to that suffering.
@relee - In Second Life, my home is a ship in orbit around Saturn. I love it here, and wish I could live in it in the real world....
