medical debt and a gofundme for a broke queer indigenous writer 

a few people have expressed their desire to help me out with a ridiculous medical bill, asking if i would set up a gofundme so i did

please, if you are in a tight spot yourself, take care of you first. this is like, the most absurd time possible for debt collectors to come knocking for me but i suppose thats why they did it. i've made my first payment today and another isn't due until july 18th.

if you can and want to help, thank you! let me know if there's anything i can do in return for you. if you can't, that's totally cool. this is not an emergency need, i'm just broke and its gonna suck paying this off lol (boosts are ok)

my first toot shall be my favorite meme that i spent a literal year searching for:

i have an unhealthy love of creepy serial killer movies that use bad EDM for chasing down the escaped heroine

thinking about flemish giant rabbits who are the size of dogs and are really gentle and protect your kids

Came out to my mom about being agender and using they/them pronouns

It went fine.

Another piece for @BestGirlGrace that's part of a thing, but she's so pretty that I want everyone to see her and scream about how pretty Grace is with me

@flowerenby Okay, first you need to get a cat to fall asleep on your chest or stomach, so you can't turn over. I don't know what happens after this, though. I think the cat has some kind of soporific effect.

people who sleep on their backs, how do you do it? I'm trying to learn in the next ten minutes

writing music for the night: Carpenter Brut "Monday Hunt"

Today marks three years of the partner putting up with my nonsense.

He leaned over the sofa and hissed at me, then said, "that's the special hiss, that's the three year hiss"

so, you know, I think he's the one

@ljwrites (These toots applying 1000% also to Australian Aboriginal & Torres Strait indigenous peoples)

@ljwrites whites: we remember them with these touching tributes!
*points to racist images used by brands, teams etc*
*points to racist museum exhibits of stolen objects & misinformation*
*points to appropriative tourist shops on defaced/destroyed sacred sites*

Whites: We will never know what happened to the American indigenous peoples 😢

Indigenous peoples: Quit telling everyone we're dead!

Whites: Sometimes we can still hear their voices 😩

I get incredibly nervous when people equate "rudeness" or "assertiveness" with "abuse"

"politeness" is used for abuse all the fucking time

Came out to my mom about being agender and using they/them pronouns

It went fine.

Physical anguish 

I rubbed icy hot on my grandma

And then I rubbed my eye

why the fuck is "the maya mysteriously disappeared" like a thing you hear online in those pseudo science mystery channels??? like, we know where the Maya are, they're in Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize. there's like 6 million people who speak Mayan languages with a clear cultural continuity from like 900ad to modern day through the colonial period. they're right there, you can go talk to them, I'm sure some of them are lovely people
