Bad social media interaction - someone was upset about the way I phrased a question, I responded pettily, apologized for that, after which they raked me over the coals some more.
Regardless of wrong and right, I'd love to have the kind of brain that doesn't get stuck in the proverbial garbage disposal about this sort of thing.
Body image stuff
also I think my hairline is moving and HEY, I WAS USING THAT
It was a fun thing to do, too! I'm not used to being in a room full of people who don't mind doing this kind of grunt work that just needs doing.
Anyway these are the pictures, I'm the weirdo in the beige shirt.
Body image stuff
Some of it is definitely that I'm much fatter than I used to be. But does that mean I should deal with my fatphobia, or should I strive to change my body to match my self-image anyway? If that's even possible.
Some of it is probably Gender Stuff, and some of it might just be posture. Who the hell knows.
Calendula freak show on my balcony: The seeds in the bag were from a seed-proof variety, but now, in the 2nd year, many of the plants produce either no or very few seeds. Instead, they grow a 2nd layer of deformed flowers on top of the first ones. / Ringelblumen-Freakshow auf meinem Balkon: Jetzt, im 2. Jahr, produzieren viele der "samenfesten" Pflanzen anstelle neuer Samen lieber deformierte sekundäre Blüten, die aus den verblühten ersten Blüten hervorschießen. 🧐 @plants
A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"First contact!" someone shouted.
"Seventh contact," the alien said. "Previously, you have called us gods, tried to fight us, or tried to have sex with us."
"What do you expect now?"
"We don't know. You keep surprising us."

I feel like I should do the math to figure out how much heating capacity the reno would save the CA, and how much kWh all affected tenants would (ballpark) save, but I'm not sure where to begin.
At a condo association meeting tonight I learned that the roof renovation has been getting postponed for literal decades.
As a top floor tenant, I was not thrilled. I may have made some disgruntled remarks.
We've got 16 out of 80 addresses that would benefit from it directly, but because there aren't any leaks It's Totally Fine Guys. Christ.
I suppose the first high-ish profile show (as far as I know?) with an actor coming out as trans should be very clear and explicit about the whole thing. Feel like they did a great job at the approach they chose, anyway.
Update: I borrowed those spoons from future me. Hi, future me here.
All of the weekly maintenance stuff is on hold right now except for the three plants I watered this morning because they looked extremely sad. Sorry, plants, baba needs home renovation.
