Pinned toot

Ahoy, New folks on swingset.social? Time for an post!

I'm Lilian, your local Mastodon old-timer and part of the mod team! I'm a thirty-something blue-haired transfeminine queer, living in the Seattle area. I'm an oversaturated solo polyamorous slut, casually kinky, trying to take care of myself and my chosen family. I dabble in all kinds of crafts, always looking for a new way to make useful and beautiful things.

That progression through a craft where you want more and more esoteric tools...

Right now I need a battery-powered magnetic stir bar to operate in a vacuum chamber

cnpol, uspol, facepalm, subtoot of a chat elsewhere 

"i don't discuss politics with anyone who uses the phrase authoritarian regime"

Cool cool so an accurate description of both governments in question are off the table?

I'm into the endgame of my current knitting project, which involves creating and binding off the points of individual feathers at the end of the shawl. Each one takes a bit under an hour, and I've finished nine of twenty-four. I thought I had more than enough yarn left, but I'm having some second thoughts about that part...

Today's milkshake duck 

... may not be entirely surprising, but the mask is now entirely off - Cliff Mass's latest blog post "Seattle: A City in Fear" goes directly to "protesters are the real fascists" and generally slobbers all over SPD's boots.

Fuck that guy forever.

Food 

Holy crap I can correctly transcribe my favorite biscuit recipe, from memory, from *bed* within half an hour of waking up.

Webcomics vs uspol (racism, fantastic versus extremely real) 

I realize that Rich Burlew has a long game plan for Order of the Stick, and some health concerns that restrict when he can post updates, but the timing of the current scene is just *brutally* unfortunate. Feels really uncomfortable for a white guy to be telling that story in 2020.

Lyricsposting, 2020 mood 

When you're lovers in a dangerous time
Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime
Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
Gotta kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight

Earworm shitpost 

No, no, please, call me Howie. Howard DeWitt was my father.

Selleck settles for the solid salary of a celery reseller.

Stoned thought: food, earworm, wtf 

Celery salary soup

International Nonbinary Day? Don't mind if I do (eye contact)

Stoned ramble 3/3 

We trade names and pronouns, they live within a couple blocks. Yay more queers in the neighborhood!

We only traded a few words, but I definitely got the impression that he's home with his parent(s), was only just coming out when stuff went into lockdown, and they've had several of these conversation drives to help the parent(s) Get It. It's taken a bit but they're close to coming around.

Y'all protect your babyqueers now, y'hear?

Stoned ramble 2/ 

There are two people in the car, the older the driver and the younger the passenger, with enough age difference to possibly be parent and child. Apparently a way they're used to having conversations is by getting in the [electric] car and tooling around the neighborhood, and this is what they're up to.

The younger one also has *undeniable* T-voice.

Stoned ramble 1/ 

I'm finally getting my transponder to tune in on masc frequencies?

I was out for a walk after dinner and got a drive-by "love your hair!" from the folks inside. We chatted a bit about how this is the year for it, then go our separate ways; I turn to head north a couple blocks and circle back for home. The same car passes me again, rolls down the window, yelling, "we swear we're not stalking you! Just driving around to chat!"

My name is Nominomous, baker queen; look upon my works, ye hungry, and despair.
