Tired: taking an old-ass train to a secret school of magic because you were somehow born with it when billions weren't.

Wired: People taking defensive magic lessons at a strip mall dojo because anyone can fucking learn if they desire it. :blobhyperthink:

Boiling water and storing it once boiled and waiting for it to cool is a _giant_ pain in the ass. I’ve spent all day doing very little else.

Important safety advice 

You can dance if you want to!
You can leave your friends behind!
‘Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance then they’re no friends of mine.

Not that this is news, but fuck Ted Cruz.

Power did stay on overnight. 🎉 But the water filtration center had an outage and so we’re under a boil water notice. Fun times.

Power’s still on heading into night time. Our hot water heater is very angry, so we used the stove to heat some water for bathing. We’ve got some blankets ready to add to the bed if the power goes out over night and the temperature drops again. Hope everyone’s doing OK.

We have power back (for now). It was 57 hours without power. The house got down to around 48F inside, probably. We’re hunkered down, but OK. I don’t expect it to stay on all night, but we’ll see.

It is snowing for the second time this season here. Unacceptable. It is now allowed to snow more often than once every three years and that snow is not allowed to stick to the ground except once a decade.

It’s my birthday today. I’m 39. Its been a very stressful week or so for me, so here’s hoping I can get a slight reprieve soon.

If you’re inclined to, maybe think of me while giving some money to an organization doing direct action against white supremacist, patriarchal capitalism (or directly to women or enbies of color).

Where's my gardener mufos, and who should I meet? I'm a total newbie and starting to garden. And by starting to garden I mean both researching what to plant for my first ever kitchen herb containers in a couple weeks and also recently hired some professional advice on how to progressively turn my yard into a permaculture food forest in upcoming years. I'd love to see more posts from other n00bz and from experienced gardners who like helping us learn. Bonus if southeast US (7b/8a boundary).

fellow white folks: I promise there is a middle ground between the two extremes of romanticized settler nationalism, claiming your ancestors did nothing wrong and were righteous vikings, and infantalizing yourself, bathing in white guilt, and putting Indigenous people on some kind of mystical pedestal.

we can learn from Indigenous knowledge and ways of seeing the world without reinforcing the noble savage myth that Native peoples are somehow purer than or more connected to the earth than settlers. we can reclaim our own ancestral knowledge, extricating it from capitalist, Christian, patriarchal systems of exploitation, without becoming reconstructionist LARPers or paper-thin woo-woo new agers with no real grounding in ecology and community.

yes, it takes work, research, soul searching, and discussion in community. it's not something you can buy in a kit from Urban Outfitters or the local book store. but if we do not do this work, we will continue enacting spiritual and cultural violence against ourselves and Indigenous peoples.
