In case this is relevant to your interests. (Anything political would go on [tumblr.com profile] kaberants, but I just... Haven't Been.)

A'ight folk it turns out I'm mildly allergic to the carrier oil BPAL uses, alas, and consequently I am finally getting around to a destash. I have not yet looked up current prices for everything but the only thing I'm particularly precious about is the March Hare. Otherwise, you lot get first shot at Making Me An Offer (or indeed straight-up expressing interest - I am very likely willing to gift things) before I stick everything on the forums; I mostly want to not be lugging it around and am v happy to do 3-5 frimps with every 5ml bottle. BEAR IN MIND that getting to the post office is a somewhat Difficult thing for me, so it might be a little while before stuff goes into the post, but you Will Get It.

Almost everything here was acquired (by me, not originally) in 2012-2013; I'm happy to use Teflon tape or not on bottles for shipping; recycled padded envelopes + bubble wrap are the order of the day.

The list... )

hello everybody I know I owe a lot of you replies various and am working on it, my life should get a little less hectic for a while as of tomorrow morning unless we do make a snap decision to move house (~250m, positive reasons) once we've viewed a thing tomorrow morning, thank you for bearing with me, love meme is still open and is still getting a trickle of comments and I am working on responding to y'all, especially the folk I want to say thank you to for making me cry in a good way <3

I am no longer cross-posting to LiveJournal by default. I may still crosspost, but I'm not likely to remember to do so at all reliably. I intend to continue reading.

(I don't recognise myself in the mirrors you hold up to me, and I keep crying in astonished gratitude about the things you see, and I'm trying to learn. I'm overwhelmed and grateful enough that I'm not really managing to respond to any of your threads yet, I'm sorry, but I'm beginning to find words; in the meantime, I just want to note that we've got nearly the entire alphabet represented, and we're over halfway to beating the comment count on the most participated-in love meme I've hosted.)

(hello folk who normally see me on IRC, the Internet connection I'm using til Friday doesn't like ssh and I can't face using WebIRC or whatever, so if you want me then e-mail/grab me on Telegram/send me a message/etc <3)

1. I have taken to posting my todo/tada lists as do-not-display-on-Reading-page, e.g. today's, largely out of fear of being tedious/clutter/etc. However every time I link to one comments end up being made on it, ergo:
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: Just the Poll Creator, participants: 30

Keep hiding t*d* lists from subscribers?

Yes
1 (3.3%)

No
26 (86.7%)

Something else, which I will explain in comments
3 (10.0%)

3. Spotted in the Evening Standard -- an article by a white dude about SW:TFA that kind of made me want to take him out to dinner when combined with the rest of his articles in that spread.

i.e. I am now also available for IM purposes on Telegram, at the obvious username, and you are welcome to add me.

Be aware that (1) basically unless I'm actually dating you I am terrible at initiating conversations (and sometimes even when I am actually dating you), and (2) if we don't have a history of realtime communication I'm likely to Have A Social Anxiety about How Does Smalltalk (i.e. it is almost always best to go "ALEX I HAVE A QUESTION" or "ALEX HERE IS A BAT" rather than "ALEX HOW ARE YOU" unless you are someone who has a history of yelling that question at me and there are ergo established expectations about how much information you're actually asking for and Why You're Asking, and I still might decide I don't have the cope for people right then and not respond). Neither of these means I dislike you.

(I am also the obvious username for gchat and you're welcome to add me there too if you're not Telegram-enabled. The same is true of Freenode IRC. Facebook and Skype are means of contacting me but they're much more frequently ignored for months at a time.)

Folk, I've just caught up with the introductions meme. Given how long it's taken me I don't think I've really got the cope to invite further participation that requires action on my part, but by all means go introduce yourselves to each other, and if you didn't play this time I will doubtless be doing another. <3

-- is partly because I'm pulling fairly long days for the next fortnight (finishing up chemistry this week for five days of machine time next week; teaching Tuesday mornings and throughout Fridays), partly because I'm reading a pile of books, partly because of guiltknitting (nearly done!), partly because I spent this weekend being utterly teenaged with facesfriend (and also eating and sleeping a lot, hurrah), and partly because I will be spending next weekend with P in Stockholm, where we will probably read a lot of poetry and watch a lot of Elementary and spend less time out of the house than we ~ort~. Much affection to you all and apologies for commenting less than I'd like. <3

1. December Days masterpost is still collecting links! I am really looking forward to reading all the awesome stuff people are putting out. (In comments [personal profile] theladyscribe notes that they're hosting a friending meme, if you want to go play!)

2. I've still got some days available! Feel free to go prompt. (And even if it looks like I won't have days free, go for it - I can drop topics from people who've got two, or combine similar ones, etc.)

3. Love meme continues! I just unscreened about 60 comments (including one new nomination) that came in over the weekend (hometernot is still hometernot, but switchover to new ISP happens on Sunday...) I am going to try to get my act together to start leaving comments for you. <3 If you would like to be nominated but are feeling edgy about participation, by all means PM me and I will do the thing for you!

4. [personal profile] sebastienne, the boything, and my housemate conspired to gift me a bunch of dinosaurs - two origami ones, one sheet of stickers - which were scattered artfully around my desk at home when I got it. :-)
kaberett: a patch of sunlight on the carpet, shaped like a slightly wonky heart (light hearted)
Yep (189 comments!). But I'm afraid I'm closing it to new requests for introductions, because it has been nearly a month and I'm still being super slow about writing them. HOWEVER, I am intending to run a love meme in November, so more chances for nice things then. ♥

I'm going to be dropping my citalopram to my summer dosage a week on Monday, so the 28th of April.

If you spot me going a bit wrong and I don't seem to have noticed, I'd massively appreciate you pointing it out, but t'isn't any of your jobs; and I'll be self-monitoring with PHQ-9 all else aside.

(ps thank you to everyone going "what the fuck" about my GP; I think I'd got into learned-helplessness mode about the entire situation. I have Done Some Preliminary Investigation into potential replacements.)

I've updated my care and feeding and contact details post (the latter is filtered; if you want in on the filter please ask). If I have filled in a poll with my address, holler and I will fix it. Both of these are linked from the sticky post at the top of my journal, if that's useful.

So far I have had one response to the cake-and-pronouns e-mail and it was decent.

I got further followup in terms of the dreadful Assertiveness course and need to reply to it.

I don't think I am going to new-year-meme in addition to December Days (I haven't forgotten that I need to put together the pile of metal recs!), but if you've got any questions about the year just gone/the one coming, please feel free to ask in comments. <3
