Pinned toot

I'm a part-time software engineer and stay-at-home-dad. I used to be a high-school English teacher, but cured me of that.

I love poetry but don't read enough of it.

I hate arguing online but I do way too much of it.

I try to seek out people with different life experiences to me, so if I follow you and you wonder if I'm gonna be problematic and tell you you're wrong, I'm actually just listening in and hoping to learn something.

I'd probably block me. YMMV

Pretty cool that the Tax office gives you an itemised receipt of how they spent your taxes.

It makes taxes feel like they are paying for subscription services.

Welfare is pricey, but well worth it. Defence is crap, tbh, would cancel.

I mean, I'm straight, but if you don't fancy Bearded Teo just a lil bit then I doubt your humanity.

Is it possible to be a stay at home Dad and not have a low key crush on Justine Clarke?

Now he's upset because I wouldn't let him assist with the wiping.

Having a 2yo means exchanges like this:

Me: I just need to go to the toilet and then I'll get you something to eat, ok?

2: I can come watch?

Me: *sigh* if you must...

I intend to be a better husband and father today by getting a bunch of shit done.

Never thought I’d relate to a vending machine so much

Picked the best 10 minute window for a dash to the shops. Hail storm and flash flooding in the Woollies car park

You know what's really hard?

Seeing something you don't like and just, y'know, keeping that to yourself.

Gattaca baby options meeting:

“Welcome sir would you like to review our menu of-“


“Ok but have you consid-“

“Full gamer, 10 thumbs, minimum neck how fast can you deliver.”

Kid woke up at 4:50 now he's sleeping on me and I'm wide awake.

It's 5:10. Send coffee.

Leftist unity will come through kindness & respect for oppressed people, not the expectation that they tolerate as much cruelty & dehumanization as they can stomach.

If kindness or respect can doom your grand plans for fighting fascists or toppling capitalism to total failure, your plans are shit. Make better ones.

Ha. I logged in to twitter and had 2 new followers despite not posting anymore. I haven't had new followers in ages.

It's like me not posting is better content than me posting.

I wanna do a supercut of all the El and Max scenes in Stranger Things 3, with K Flay's Sister playing over the top, but I definitely don't have the time to make that happen so you all just gonna have to imagine how awesome it'd be.

Fell asleep on the couch while kids watched a movie and woke up in a panic that it was too late to start dinner.

Wife had nipped off to get pizza, beer and dumplings.

I would have saved this for my post, but one of the beers is 8% so I might be asleep by then.

Or singing The Old Purple Tin like a sea shanty
