So if anyone was curious about how many things I’ve managed to grow on my windowsill, the answer is lots.
Important! Snail racing drama
Okay sooo, the snails I collected had a big race today. For my sister's seventh birthday.
Mine are the four rightmost in the picture— Leobald has set off to a good start but Big Dave is trolling both Alexandria and Ruth on the start line. The other three had spent a little too long in captivity so they were a little... ahem.... sluggish.
@pfx why do I see the name ‘snail bookie’ and immediately think “ah that’s probably puff”
Are you so bored lately you’ve been driven to racing snails?
Plant update: after leaving everything for three months in lockdown, almost everything is dead except the aloe and maybe some tomato seedlings. The tomatoes have sprouted a few green bits since being home but they seem to have slowed down now.
However now I’m at my parents I have access to their strawberries and peas which are doing very well
You think kindness is so revolutionary? Take a course on burn out prevention. Learn to be a street medic. Learn psychological first aid.
People under violent attack from the system aren’t going to be magically saved by a cup of tea and a smile. Your kindness isn’t powerful at all if you don’t actually learn how to do care work.
Drop the respectability politics, drop the superiority complex, and actually get to work.
tip: when a rich liberal tries to hinge an argument for why you shouldn’t go further left with “it won’t play well” or “people aren’t ready for that yet” they’re just telling you THEY don’t agree with it yet; they just have some self awareness that if they were to say that they’d be roundly criticized

it's so fucking wild to me that people who don't work for a multinational corporation think that copyright law protects them at all. like no independent artist has the resources to *actually* go after copyright infringement. copyright is mere security theater for "intellectual property," a phrase so cursed i cannot believe we have normalized it
