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.
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).
Ways to not be successful in converting me to your religion
- Be an old white dude.
- Offer me a creepy pamphlet.
- When I politely decline said pamphlet, tell me that I am going to die soon.
- When I say that there’s no need to tell me that, get all the fuck up in my personal space.
- 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.
- When I lose it and tell you forcefully to fuck off, finally back off, but tell me that the lord is listening.
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.
