Pinned toot

I have a creative project in mind to celebrate those who have had a positive impact on humanity. I'm thinking the likes of Fred Rogers, LeVar Burton, The Wachowskis, Carl Sagan, etc. As a cis white man, my biases may lead me down the wrong path. For example, off-hand I am not able to think of any cis-women to meet this standard, though no doubt there are plenty. Suggestions for well-known people who have profoundly benefited humanity are quite welcome, please.

Went on another birthday suit hike tonight. Went 2.5 miles clothed normally, then waded in the river. It was about 60Β° F, so a little cool, but I was plenty warm, so I decided to do the 2.5 miles back sans clothing.

It won't be much longer before it's legit too cold to do that at all.

Between being busy as hell & having a lot of good tippers tonight, I averaged $28 per hour. That's a pretty damn good night given my base pay is only $6 per hour. Also helps make up for the recent car repairs. Not too bad. 😎

I've cried three times tonight. I'm such a softy sometimes.

But at least I know crying with my contacts in isn't a problem. That's a plus. πŸ™‚πŸ‘

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

Playing Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. All excited to be up to 12 hearts, but I'm in the dark world now & everything does 3 hearts worth of damage.

I need to upgrade my gear, fast!

If ever I am granted three wishes, one of them will be to never fucking hear anything about kanye west again

baby highland cow pics, cow eye contact 

i was taking pictures of it and it was like "oh? you desire a Model? well let me come closer"

i’m old enough to remember when people were shocked by weaponized vehicles and not tacitly accepting it as a police tactic against protestors

I don't know how Ricky Gervais creates shows that make me appreciate life while being miserable, but he does it quite well.

After Life is really helping my mood tonight. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Learning proper eye rubbing techniques while wearing contacts because I'm very much an eye rubber.

This is not easy.

I truly hope my vision clears up. It's been a week. The doctor insists it will after a week, but everything is still a bit blurry. He rushed through the testing, so I'm reasonably sure I do not have the correct prescription.

I'd go get an exam elsewhere, but insurance won't pay for me to see two different doctors back to back. Plus, COVID makes it hard to get in anywhere *sigh*

NGL, I get a little jealous when I see people with beautiful hair, because I know I can never have that.

After Life is definitely matching my mood tonight.

Every time I watch it, it really makes me look at my own life. It also makes me want to learn to play an instrument.

Was going to stop watching after one episode, but the next one is The Inner Light. How can I possibly delay what may be one of the strongest character development episodes?

@beegrrl Is Margot a new online handle, or will that be your new name here forward? I was away for a bit & may have missed this. I want to be sure if I address you by name, I'm using the one you prefer. πŸ™‚πŸ‘

Think I'm probably going to be primarily shitposting from here on out.

Deal with it.

I still miss lime is Skittles, but at least they reduced the potency of the sour apple. It used to be quite overwhelming.

That said, like many, I hate change. I miss old Skittles. I also miss old Doritos.

Can't imagine how I got fat...

Stepped away for a week. The break was helpful. I hope nobody missed me too much.

That's a lie. I hope everyone was in pieces without me. I'm needy like that.
