Next door neighbors lawn sale-ing.

I uh. Love old grody road signs so i called dibs on this boi. It’s from NY state.

Pics from yesterday and today.

1: our scruffy visiting cat being sassy after being growled at by Cookie
2: A robin from like 8:30 this morning stood still long enough for a shot
3: the long view from the new swing-bench in the backyard
4: ENHANCE - barely visible cats napping by the door, angry bc I am not on the porch

uhh 

Yeah idk what I’m doing rn. On the road for a trip, but just wanted to say even though I’m largely flaky and don’t do social media anymore (because I have nothing to say except pointless bitching into the wind, have nothing to contribute because i can’t create anymore, and absolutely everything makes me anxious and feel inferior), i still think about the very few folks that have been good to me, even if i suck at being a functional and/or social human.

u ever just

rly crave rewarding social interaction, but everyone sucks

Or you don’t know how to socialize “normally” in the midst of depression

or you’re convinced that anyone who tolerates you doesn’t deserve being forced interacting with you

OR nobody ever gives any indication you’ve spoken or had a sentient thought, and genuinely cannot tell that you just gave up on speaking unless spoken to - and only to *briefly* answer a thing.

I’m not usually into MtG much, but the D&D set just dropped, and I helped my bud John unbox a large batch today. So much fun seeing familiar things and characters represented.

And the humble Flumph is actually a Rare card; being what, a CR 1/8 in D&D and Lawful Good, it totally makes sense they’d have Defender and no points in attack 😂

John thoughtfully sleeved it, and gifted the squishy baby to me!

- c-19, depression (of others), anti-vax 

From the only TRD group I could find.
Old biddies turning to hysterics claiming the vaccine MUST be making depression worse, bc it wasn’t SPECIFICALLY tested on depressed ppl???

It… doesn’t even target specifically the brain? Why jump to that conclusion? It’s literally just you? I’m fine, other depressed ppl are fine, stop fear mongering jfc

My timeline did a thing.
Remembering, and forgetting.

Am I the only one that feels like this is what is actually being said?

At the grocery store, lookin at mango, and a lorge dood w sweet tatts sidles up to also view fruits, and says “Oh sorry fellas, don’t wanna squish ya!” (Im like half his height)

Leaving, B says “...you got ‘fella’d’, you notice?”
Me: <excited noise>

A wild, unfinished & miscolored Pride flag! 😦

(ACAB)(what fresh new hell does red/blue represent?)

Horrible idea. The only fruit that pairs with cola is cherry.

When I study Japanese basics while falling asleep; I give you the new Kanji radical known as SWS

...yes it was 9 AM.

7 sec video & audio: If there weren’t text, I’d have no idea what I just heard???

Were those words? She sounds asleep or fucking drunk

Better on typed input, but changed nuance between distinguishing “one’s grandmother” 「おばあさん」(Obaasan) from “my grandmother” 「祖母」(Sobo).

So from switching Japanese to English and back, I got “Anata no sobo” - Lit. “Your (my) grandmother”; and from my understanding, it would be p rude to call someone else’s grandma soba? I haven’t been able to tell if obaasan is more polite and soba is more casual within family, or some other hierarchy structure.

So I guess... have at least a novice level knowledge of words/culture before using a translator or dictionary? 😳

Uhhh... Microsoft Translator’s camera translation is... not to be relied on. The rest is fine as far as I’ve tested it. Let’s plug this one in and see what we get...

「JR 上野公園ぐち」- 柳美里

“Tokyo Ueno Station” by Yu Miri

I just bought this book on a recommendation, I forget where... but it’s about a poor man who works on the construction of the 60’s (?) Japanese Olympics, and while he’s away from home, an earthquake and resulting tsunami wipes out his family and hometown. So he ends up homeless in Ueno Park.

A collection:

1&2: I would like the gender neutral bathroom, and to use the chaotic good cubicle once the Pegasus is done, plz.
