- I’m a health researcher who is moving further into UX and service design.
- Academic work is on co-production and mental health.
- I love sci-fi and fantasy games, shows, comics and books.
- In practice I go on mostly about cats, my wife and LGBTQ rights (always LWithTheT)
- My bird account became very work-y and still unsure if I want to use this the same way or just have a quiet gay geeky cat corner
- I think the flexible CW feature is cool

This country is a moral and legal trash fire but it’s where they keep my greggs vegan sausage rolls

Now I know how the guy in the Sistine chapel picture felt

This is a chapter title from ‘our house is on fire’ (which I loved, and is as much about mental health and neurodivergence as about climate change). I don’t know if it’s a quote but it hit me surprisingly hard and I still reflect on it. Maybe it’s just such an antidote to the give up/hey we’re probably a simulation attitude elsewhere.

If you enjoy the show Leverage and wanted to have more like it but maybe painted onto thinly sliced trees or, contrarywise, want an experience for your ears only, then I have a book recommendation for you!

Going Postal by Terry Pratchett is about a con artist who gets roped (quite literally) into saving the Post Office. It's got scams, gender theory, golem liberation, extremely funny moments and a group of pre-industrial-revolution internet hackers!

(De Nederlandse vertaling door Venugopalan Ittekot is trouwens ook fantastisch, doet niet onder voor het origineel!)

is YOUR child using the internet to search for and talk to others about "E"??
Watch for these signs in your child's messaging history:
-"I'm looking for the new E" = I'm looking for the new Evanescence
-"come do E with us later" = You're invited to my Evanescence listening party
-"U R M I" you are My Immortal
-"BMTLWMUISMCMNASMFTD" = bring me to life wake me up inside save me call my name and save me from the dark

Also intermittently pausing it and showing me her phone so I can agree how much Salem looks like Max.

Show thread

Wife is rewatching the original Sabrina The Teenage Witch and so I’m just hearing chuckling followed by the occasional “oh, Salem!” and it’s adorable.

I see where they’re going with the Agnes/Borg “oh I’m so lonely and only get on with robots” thing. But she’s clearly built great relationships with the other characters? And why do clever women have to always be portrayed as so unhappy they’re not like everyone else? Tldr: brb just painting my JUSTICE FOR AGNES banner

Judith Butler, feminist philosopher: "The point is not that they will go after abortion first, gay marriage second, and contraception third. No, the legal framework that is emerging targets the very idea of new historical formations of freedom (and equality) and seeks a restoration of patriarchal order backed by the force of federal law."

Q - spotted this new stem growing from my calathea but tip already brown (I think under watered) - should I trim it off? Or is it lost already?

Overheard wife’s work zoom and a woman saying to a guy “I really value your input but no thank you” when he suggested a change and I’m in love

Kate didn’t know who this was and I’m fuming that I explained it rather than just saying “oh, Lord Creepalot? Yeah, Will’s great uncle I think. He’s in the next season of The Crown.”
