    i gave my african violet a compost snack, and there must've been viable seeds left in it because a locust tree sprouted out of the violet pot. i'm thinking of transplanting it and keeping it. it's so wee! :3

    so i was on a plane up until about an hour ago and the flight attendant could not figure out what pronouns to use so he went "what can I get for you, mis--um, s-sir--mi--um, what can I get for you?" and just completely gave up on pronouns. which makes me happy because it means i'm presenting androgynously instead of too masculine-ly! (at least, enough that a) he read me as feminine at first glance, and b) was confused enough to keep having to switch :D)

    I was playing 2048 earlier and made a tile sized 16384 which is the biggest I've ever done and feels super awesome to have pulled off! Took a while to manage to get the stars to align for it, too.

    Thank you so much!! :D I'm so excited, I've been obsessed with TMBG since I was a twelve-year-old Smol so this is honestly incredible for me, being on the cover of an album by a band I've fangirled (and hardcore sperged tbh) over for more than half my life. ;u;

    (That trip to go see those shows with my friends was so worth it, and so was that two-hour wait in the frigid windy cold for doors because we got such good spots. :3)

    This is a thing more people than just me do and someone put it into words! This is why I occasionally find it mildly annoying when a character's confirmed as some kind of queer! It's not just internalised homophobia!

    (Oh, ah, here's the link. Forgot. And I also often have a similar feeling when a ship gets confirmed, even if it's one I liked.)

    The Kung Fu Panda holiday special is about the only holiday special I've ever seen which is about a non-Christmas holiday, and it got me to look up the Dongzhi Festival. It shares themes with Christmas and appeals to a Western audience, but it also successfully uses themes of Confucian culture, with honour/shame issues causing conflict and the heartwarming moment being based on filial piety. (Honestly I'm weirded out by the fact that Seth Rogen worked on a franchise as beautiful as KFP and then made Sausage Party.)

    The eternal appropriateness of this song, plus the fact that it's been very, very true for me this year.
