I so needed this weekend - went to WA for a rookie tournament*; it was great to get away and just play derby for two days. We were Team Maimbow and so we all did colour names for the tournament; Megan suggested mine.  
*it wasn’t really a tournament since only 2 teams showed up (plus they threw together a pick-up team), but I still got to play in 3 games so whatevs

heeeraldo said: were you in the store today? I remember seeing you and thinking "I should go say hi" and then getting immediately mired in someone's problem

Yes, I’m sorry I missed you! I was getting a new phone (old one’s screen finally cracked after being dropped a billion times whoops).  It was busy there eh? I guess it pretty much always is.

7:25pm    I am so good at flirting   Autostraddle  

An awkward/adorable moment while wearing my Tomboy Femme t-shirt

  • Cute Barista: I like your shirt (thumbs up, maybe winking?)
  • Me: Thanks, it's from Autostraddle.
  • CB: Is that a tv show...?
  • Me: No it's a website.
  • Me: (Bolts without getting lid for coffee, has to to steal lid from different coffee shop).
1:03am    Upsetting times while dog walking   Seriously fuck that guy  

Ways to not be successful in converting me to your religion

  1. Be an old white dude.
  2. Offer me a creepy pamphlet.
  3. When I politely decline said pamphlet, tell me that I am going to die soon.
  4. When I say that there’s no need to tell me that, get all the fuck up in my personal space.
  5. When I get upset, follow me partway across the street while gesturing at my dog and telling me that my dog didn’t come from monkeys, he came from the lord.  
  6. When I lose it and tell you forcefully to fuck off, finally back off, but tell me that the lord is listening.

ryannorth:

Happy Pi Approximation Day, everyone!  Failure is just success rounded down.

I have this shirt, and I love to wear it when I feel like things might not go very well, but that I’m trying enough to not feel sorry about it.  Like in university I wore it to exams, and now sometimes I wear it to awkward social situations, or first dates.

Happy Pi Approximation day!

I donated blood for the first time today

Which was cool, because I used to be way too scared of a needle sitting in my arm for that amount of time, and it was totally fine.  But ALSO it made me realize that in certain points of my life, because of my sexual history, I have been ineligible to donate blood (which I realized on the way to my appointment, and had a frantic googling time on my phone because I couldn’t remember what the exact stipulations were, and if they would make me ineligible now, which it turns out they don’t).  And it made me think more about all the people I know that can never donate blood because of bullshit discriminatory policies.  And also when I got home I tried to find out how exactly they define “male” and “female” in the questions they ask (about who you’ve had sex with), and what if any policies there are about trans folks, and mostly just came upon this which is also a bunch of bullshit.

BEES WHAT ARE THEY LIKE

7:26pm    It's not perfect but it's getting closer   My taxes next year are going to be so complicated tho   DOING ALL OF THE THINGS  

Okay, I now have three sources of income coming up (two short-term casual, one part-time/on-call), now I just need one that’s solid to supplement and everything will be fine.  ALSO two of the things are with organizations I love and am legit excited to work with. (The other one is some shifts at my old job which is a low pressure situation so that’s nice).  

SUMMER 2014 GONNA SLAY IT.
