Pinned toot

Gonna see if I can pin this to my timeline properly so as people show up they can intro.

So I'm Visi. I'm 25, they/them. I do technical theatre, usually hair and makeup but I've been known to dabble in props n shit also, or costumes sometimes if nobody cares that I hate sergers. I'm a true crime nerd, pokemon go player, and all around human dumpster fire. I host, and do a lot of the day to day shit in the system. I'm here to meet new systems and make friends and such and like? Learn? idk. I've known about us for like 4-5 years now but I've never engaged in a meaningful way with the community as a host, even though some of the others (egg im calling u out) really wanna connect. So yeah. Whaddup guys?

"make eye contact so I know you're paying attention to me"
"ok" [concentrates on making eye contact and immediately can't focus on anything you're saying]

I don't really believe in robots that will be hell bent on destroying humanity when they gain sentience. Like have you ever really watched a human? We pack bond with inanimate objects. We give names to everything from our phones, to cars, to coffee pots, and satellites. We say thank you to things for doing their jobs. We actively mourn having to get rid of unusable tech. I mean scientists taught the Mars Rover to sing Happy birthday to itself and bought a cake to celebrate with it, so.. like..

Eye Contact With People: ❌

Just Repeat To Yourself "This Is Not Butter, I Should Really Just Relax."

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

You, a pedant: Fall starts on September 23rd.

Me, a spoopy: If you can't appreciate the poetry of starting the Halloween season with the full moon falling on Friday the Thirteenth, leave now.

¡Tips for Cishets!

When someone tells you they prefer they/them pronouns, you don’t need to melodramatically bleat about how HaRd and InCoNvEnIeNT it is like you’re in the black and white part at the beginning of a billy Mays informercial

Handwritten bumper sticker that says "please do not honk at me, I am not from here and I'm doing my best"

DID misrepresentation in media 

If you work in some place like the US and you "don't see race" or "don't care about gender," that's really convenient for your bosses because it means you won't notice weird hitting patterns

I wish we were all friends internally, but tbh there's more drama in our internal world then there is externally and its wild and difficult

ok so why was there a turkey on my street today? Like just. A live bird. In the sidewalk, looking confusedly at a house on my street, as I drove past, also deeply confused. What is Rhode Island.

Ugh every once and a while I get this impulse to come out to random people as a system and it's not a good time and the rest of us aren't into it, I know it, but also there's this element of loneliness that we have and idk.
