Pinned post

Oh, should probably pin this just as a head up for folks. Interactions and DMs not just open, but encouraged!

I want to be a chatterbox!

I try not to talk about politics too much on here. That doesn't mean that my political views are different than others posting here, they're not.

It's just that I really want this space to be a bit more lighthearted personal, and not angry. I have other spots for anger.

That doesn't mean I disagree with the anger shown, I understand entirely why folks are mad, and I'm mad too- I just want to talk about other things here.

Does anyone have studies about post orchiectomy hormone levels handy?

Jay White and Thunder Rosa are incredibly cute and wholesome.

One definite difference I notice, I liked my sister's nail polish. Nice Lavender shade. Old me wouldn't have noticed.

Well, survived thanksgiving, sister was clueless, and as expected, my voice changes around my parents to make myself less suspicious.

This may be copied from a Facebook thing, but it is VERY accurate, as someone who worked at a shelter.

  1. Everyone donates Kraft Mac and Cheese in the box. They can rarely use it because it needs milk and butter which is hard to get from regular food banks.
  2. Boxed milk is a treasure, as kids need it for cereal which they also get a lot of.
  3. Everyone donates pasta sauce and spaghetti noodles.
  4. They cannot eat all the awesome canned veggies and soup unless you put a can opener in too or buy pop tops.
  5. Oil is a luxury but needed for Rice a-Roni which they also get a lot of.
  6. Spices or salt and pepper would be a real Christmas gift.
  7. Tea bags and coffee make them feel like you care.
  8. Sugar and flour are treats.
  9. They fawn over fresh produce donated by farmers and grocery stores.
  10. Seeds are cool in Spring and Summer because growing can be easy for some.
  11. They rarely get fresh meat.
  12. Tuna and crackers make a good lunch.
  13. Hamburger Helper goes nowhere without ground beef.
  14. They get lots of peanut butter and jelly but usually not sandwich bread.
  15. Butter or margarine is nice too.
  16. Eggs are a real commodity.
  17. Cake mix and frosting makes it possible to make a child’s birthday cake.
  18. Dishwashing detergent is very expensive and is always appreciated.
  19. Feminine hygiene products are a luxury and women will cry over that.
  20. Everyone loves Stove Top Stuffing.

Are epilators supposed to be slow/not get much? Feel like I'd need to spend 5-10 mins a day to eventually get everything on legs.

Well, just primed the hint with one of my best friends. Not worried about it, but he hasn't seen me since COVID hit, might not for a while, but he deserves to know Jenn (and is the only cis-male who has even guessed at it once so I know he won't be too surprised!)

Also question, is there a good padded bra that doesn't show under v neck shirts?

Just realized I still have an epilator. That's going to save on some shaving.

Riot games (--+) 

I really wish Riot weren't so horrible, because they're putting out some good things and doing some things right.

They crossed the moral event horizon for me though, lumping them in with Actiblizzard and Chik-Fil-A type companies.

And ironically CFA actually treats their workers well by fast food standards, it's the repeated anti-LGBT that I oppose. If it wasn't for that I'd support them.

brief mention of a bad environment I grew up in, but (+) story 

I just noticed an incredible irony about my life. Growing up, I was confused, I was raised entirely on far-right white values, and was dripping with toxicity.

25 years before I decided to live the way I wanted and put effort towards it instead of wallowing, I was exposed to a new world by following this girl who seemed really cute and interesting. She was a witch girl named Jenn.

Well, just bought blouses for hair surgery, and a beret (they said ball cap but I wanted a cute beret)

financial (-) 

Paying large amounts of money is a pain. I can do it, just gotta split it up some due to credit limits.

Just found out I have to get a buzzcut day prior to procedure.

Surgical stuff (+) 

Just got date for hairline restoration. 1/26

badfeels made worse (---) 

Co-worker came in tonight, and I could see her chest underneath a thick hoodie. I look at my chest, underdeveloped, nothing, will never be anything....

My hair is such a mess, and I can't do anything about it until I can get my horrid hairline fixed. Even then, I'll lose nine months of growth, though it's still so short...

Usually dysph doesn't hit me hard, tonight it just derailed me.

badfeels (--) 

So frustrated right now, it feels like I'm going nowhere, not getting better, not getting closer to myself.

I'm wondering if it really was too late....

Show older, your cosy queer space is a mastodon instance for those who are queer or queer-adjacent who would like a more pleasant social media experience.
