Brexit, option of Article 50 revocation, ECJ, birdsite link Show more
The British government has been unsuccessful in attempting to block the ECJ from ruling whether Article 50 can indeed be revoked; and the ECJ will now be hearing the case *next week*.
General opinion seems it can be withdrawn, but this will offer a definite answer. Of course, actually taking advantage of the option is another matter - but with the ERG revealed as toothless, the options may soon expand.
nsfw: request for advice about lube (OK to boost) Show more
This article says the most effective and budget-friendly scar treatment is just any kind of body-safe silicone lube, since it's made of the same stuff (Dimethicone and Cyclomethicone) as the outrageously expensive scar treatments.
I'm going ahead and buying Sliquid Silver for a scar treatment, since that company's known for being very body-safe. However, reviews say it can stain clothing, so that's not ideal for my needs as a scar treatment. Given that I'm looking for silicone lube that's really body-safe, fragrance-free, and non-staining, what brand would you recommend for scar treatment?
"... even Vogue, often a source for scolding, offered this freeing manifesto in 1935. ““When you get to the age where current fashions bore you and seem to have very little relation to you, do as you please. Be picturesque, dramatic, and eccentric—make the most of your opportunity of being a grande dame.”"
this is fuckin' adorable, y'all.
A reminder that this Black Friday, rather than putting on an enormous sale, @itchio will be donating their entire revenue share from all sales on the site to a pair of LGBTQ+ and climate change charities
Whither nail polish? Shelves redux. Show more
*pout* Joy of having *space* interrupted by the realisation I can't remember where I stuffed all the nail polish before starting to get everything assembled. That, at least, I can reasonably see being able to hide - but WTH are the camera bodies and lenses? O.o
Ah well.. guess I need to go through all the boxes tomorrow and make an attempt at properly loading up the shelves - not necessarily sorted, just /accessible/.

And so.. it is done. Finally, not only shelving, but two glossy white desks as well. ^_^
Getting it all sorted out is still going to be a challenge in itself, but.. it's so profoundly relaxing just as is, without the chaotic clutter (or, much less =:) of before, and /places to put things/ that aren't piles of other things.
Transphobia Show more
Did I ever tell you about the time I went to an anti-fascist march in the UK and tired to get members of my union to put their names down as opposed to transphobia in the US and about half refused? They were all, 'but feminists are saying [trans people shouldn't have any rights]'. And I'm thinking (but not saying because it's too close to the bone) 'but people will die.'
It sure was dark times back then, three days ago.
life becomes so much better when you let yourself be all the "silly" things you wanna be
don't just be yourself. try being everything else you've ever wanted to be, too. because who you are might very well change for the better.
and the best part is, you don't have to commit to any of it. you could literally change who you are every single day. nothing's stopping you. no, not even that
This is my agent tweeting from his podcast account, and folks... I like working with him.
The podcast is good, too.
An ironic venue for such a posting, but interesting regardless -

jobhunting, ~ Show more
Expanding my search, as I'm realising whilst I enjoy SF, I could probably also thrive in Portland or Seattle. And with the H-1B process such a fustercluck, why not Canada? I liked what I saw of Toronto, and plenty seem fond of Vancouver as well.
How tedious jobhunting *is*, though.. spend time writing a letter addressing a vacancy, often not hearing from them again. Still, got a good application in Burnaby; but Glassdoor suggests $60-70k with that company? (Senior firmware dev)

probably near London or SF
