Pinned toot

I've been on the birdsite about 9 years and had a mostly great experience. Then they killed 3rd party apps and without my beloved Tweetbot I just can't take their shitty native app. So here I am but I have to check back there regularly for my news/political fix. I met many fine people through that place. Hope I do here, too.

I'm Lil. I'm in the outer east of Melbourne and have run my own business from home, in the medical field for 16 years (early adopter of online contracting). I'm mum to a 22yo son who is a thoroughly decent human being, even if I did make him myself! I've thankfully reached the age where I truly DGAF what others think of me. I wish I could bottle that understanding and give it to young people to save them years of unnecessary torment. Political, pun lover & a bit sweary. Hi!

Separation update - been a while, you lucky things! 

Hello Tootsters! Been a while. Things still suck here and it’s been a miserable month but today the house is ready for its close up. Photographer coming at lunchtime, then it’ll be listed in a few days, then first OFI on 9 Feb. I’m totally over it. Overwhelmed and teary one day, fierce and focussed the next. A roller coaster I’d rather not ride yet here we are.
Hope you’re all doing well. Tell me your stuff 🙂

hey kids doing “dope” is cool but you know what’s /really/ dope?? revolutionary socialism.

Separation. The saga continues.

Honestly tho I’m probably the most efficient anarchist. I arrive in the US and not 4 hours later the govt is shut down. And it hasn’t stopped since, and I’m not planning on leaving anytime soon.

Separation stuff. Ratcheting up.

This is a follow on from my recent post about what I’m planning and hoping to achieve in 2019, in broad categories of Fitness, Weight and Food, and Creativity. I forgot one category, and it’s an important one: Acts of Kindness. The easiest thing for me (it ranks very highly on the Should-I-Do-It scale – 75 if I do a special trip, 100 if I do it while I’m in town anyway) is to donate plasma. I feel great after. I feel great for having done something for someone else. And it’s easy. It does take a bit longer than a standard blood donation around 90 minutes from walking in the door to walking back out, but it doesn’t leave you feeling depleted because you get all (or most) of your red blood cells back. Plasma donations are fascinating, too, because you’re hooked up to a machine that centrifuges out a bunch of yellow liquid from your body and returns a deep crimson stream of blood. The machines have names. If you have any questions about it, please ask below in the comments section. If you want to a donation-buddy for your first go, get in touch. I’ll try a few other acts of kindness this year, too, but will let them come and go as they please rather than forcing them.

The usual stuff. Sorry. 

A glimpse of life ahead for me 

Separation stuff (yes, it’ll be over eventually) 

Today I bought a Frida Kahlo print for a wall I don’t yet have. It was an impulse purchase but felt very right. I know I’m going to be ok.

Goodnight nerds. Last day in New York tomorrow. I'm kinda ready to return but simultaneously still have so much stuff to check out

Separation shit (this won’t last forever I promise) 

Community, Melbourne

So I cast off my 2018 temperature blanket on Jan 1st and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I knit one garter stitch row every day for 365 days based on the daily high temp for my city. It was a very rewarding project. #knitting

42c tomorrow for tomorrow. Don’t think I’ll be leaving the house.
