Oh, also, I unexpectedly have my son's A/C dismantled in the upstairs shower this afternoon. 🙄

Trying to get spray lubricant into my son's air conditioner is a real pain without one of those little red spray straws.

y'all. lets please stop using "poly" for "polyamorous" and get in the habit of using "polya" or "polyam". the reasoning behind this is a plea from Polynesian folk who have claimed the ID "Poly" for themselves, like, A WHILE ago.

Finally sitting down to watch ep. 4 of "The Mandalorian". Aspect about which I'm most excited? My long-time supercrush, Gina Carano, is in this one.

I never learned a word of Hawaiian in school, spend years homeless in Hawaii as a Native Hawaiian under imperial US capitalism working as a social worker/teacher paid starvation wages

But the Kanaka Maoli are taking our country back. Our *successful* prevention of a 1.4 billion dollar desecration (TMT) for 150 days has ignited, protests, strikes, shutdowns from Hawaiian airlines to the hotel industry, with Hawaiian flags, language spoken proudly one again

If you're a Native with things to sell, or know of a Native with a business, please drop her some deets!

I seem to be the only person whose opinion of myself I trust.

Interesting thing:

My sense of self is so well-defined that I never see myself in others' words. People can say they're talking about me and then deliver cold facts, and unless they're negatives, it's either not me or it's not a defining quality. (Lots of negatives don't define me, either, but I work hard to own up to them.)

It ain't like the US is much (any) better, babies, . . . and I at least feel we put less colorful veneer on our prejudice?

The emboldened racists here are coming out to let us shut them down. Some of us are attempting to unlearn. I ain't see none of that in Winnipeg.

So many Canadians will laud olive branches offered in the name of recognition, then turn around and eagerly tell you of a Native doing the things the poor are reduced to doing. What hilarity!

Oh, holidays. You remind me (after a while) how so many Canadians are racist trash.

There's nothing to disabuse one of their notions about the RCMP like watching two Mounties stand in a hallway and shout, "WHAT'S YOUR TRIBE? DO YOU HAVE A TREATY CARD?!" at an obviously unconscious person.
