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.

First day back at work in three months. Due to lack of updates or logins in that time, my laptop has been dropped to the "minimally trusted" tier, so I have no email access.

I have now passed two hours on hold in the hopes of getting that fixed.

"A secret facility was built under this airport at the height of the Cold War!"

When the Berlin Wall fell, that airport had barely received initial construction funding from the federal government. It didn't open until 1995, and I remember attending the air show put on for the occasion.

Domestic scenes 

Staying with my sweetie in DC for the week; my meta is a musician so sometimes there's just piano or guitar or accordion floating through the house. It's kind of amazing.

From now on referring to my vise exclusively as "the good squincher"

Second shot got, time to quiz my body on the material from last month.

The perils of crafting 

Trying to figure out new inlay techniques. The inside of my vacuum is going to be a glitter hazard zone.
