Purpose:
I'm identifying and describing myself to make it easier for people to talk to me, for me to find community, to point out some common interests, to make it simpler for anyone who chooses to call me on blinkered or privileged thinking, and to avoid inadvertently misrepresenting myself. Because people do change over time, this post is also subject to change.

Names and Pronouns:
Please call me alatefeline on Dreamwidth. I prefer they/them pronouns. Read more... )

Regarding access and subscriptions: I subscribe to people's journals readily if I like reading stuff they post. Feel free to subscribe to mine or not as you like. Basically nothing on my journal is access locked, so please don't feel like it means much if I don't grant you access / accidentally hit the grant access button. I will update if and when this needs to change.

And the past few days, in spite of having a cold & ear infection.
Yes, honestly. I'm not doing the itemized list now. I might come back and add it later.

I feel sad. (Warning, here be All The Breakup Angst with bonus general woe-is-me) Read more... )

So, that was a lot of feelings. Comments are welcome but it may take me ... awhile to be ready to reply to them.

I'm going to try to have a GOOD day at work tomorrow.

And I'm going to tend my plants before bed. And look up Meetups.

(Oh, I tried plugging in my computer charger one last time before going to the Apple Store. It worked. (wry face))

I have a cold and feel vaguely terrible but also want company, so I’ll be watching this space.

My current tea: generic black tea a la Lipton, coz I can’t taste it. Going to make some peppermint sweet tea in a bit though.

What’ll you have? *puts kettle on*

ETA: Various folks have brought scones, ginger snaps, and Girl Scout cookies, which may be assumed to be baked in whatever sort of gluten-free, low-glycemic, dairy-free, or whatever manner the eaters desires and feels necessary. We also seem to have All The Tea at this point, with special attention to things that help knock back colds and other minor illnesses. Teatime manners here consist of being not deliberately knocking someone’s tea on the floor ( eying fellow felines known to exist in various households ) though if it should occur by accident I also have All The Paper Towels.

Old friends and new acquaintances are both very much welcome.

ETAA: this particular tea party is now excused to go tidy up or take naps, but given the enthusiastic response, I will repeat this event!

Cough, sneeze, whimper.

I have a cold. It may take me a few days to get around to posting much; I still Hafta work but all I want to do is stay in bed with hot liquids.

Warning for stuff. Mostly FEELING S and probably typoes.

ETA: As you can see by the decrease in typos, non sequiturs, swear words, etc, I did in fact come back and edit the next day. If you read the whole thing before that I’m very grateful. If you made a mindful choice to head the tags/cuts and NOT read I am grateful for that too! 💜

Sunlight; a long recess; kids laughing and drawing each other into playing long involving games of imagination; growth; course changes and self-control; old fashioned playground equipment, breakfast for lunch, hide and seek under the pine trees, mud and ice and running in the open blue day.

The invention of phone humor; the existence of people willing to roll with an all emoji text conversation.

Rice cookers, refrigerators, and microwaves.

Moss, in all its intricate varieties.

Stories about otters, and pictures of hedgehogs in hats. Friends who answer a request for cute animals. Thank you!!!

Coffee shop workers who are good at their jobs, including the ‘nice to customers ‘ part.

The fact that tortilla chips are Always Food for me.

Dry leaves crisply outlined in frost.

Getting my rosemary sprig potted yesterday.

Being warm enough.

Take whatever precautions you can if you're outside in inhospitable weather, or inside somewhere without adequate set up, please? That thing you thought you maybe didn't need to do to weatherize, if you have the spoons and resources, please take care of it? *worry worry*

Well. I'm back.

... This has certainly been a long and busy weekend. With a lot of good things, and some complicated ones. Moving forward...

I have received many, many, many comments and messages with all kinds of supportive thoughts in the last couple of months.

Right now I am not able to reply to All The Comments or even a semi-realistic sub-set of All The Comments About X or From Y Time-Frame.

I am sporadically answering things, and also hoping to make a few posts that address some common topics.

I'm sorry. I do appreciate all of you. I don't want to ignore anyone, and if you actively want to repeat something you asked me earlier in the comments to this post, please know you are free to do so but not in any way obligated.

Thank you. Dreamwidth has, once again, been my lifeline. You, the people reading this and talking to me here (and elsewhere, but I think I *met* y'all here), are a big, big, big part of my life. I <3 my bloggish kinfolks.
