can someone who knows linux better than i do explain why today dosfsck found a folder full of files with bad names that, concatenated, spelled out the contents of the dwarf fortress creature templates file? this was in a folder full of UI themes for a completely unrelated program

i thought itd be great to buy wool in the bi pride colors but now i have no idea what to actually make out of it because thats not? really the colors that i wear? and it wont match literally anything i own

the deep kinship you feel with people who have the same fursona species as you

i think itll be a long time before we can come out casually to any old person as soon as it comes up but its a relief that experiences have been positive so far
something that really helped me both in this instance and the other is that the people i talked to both found ways to like, relate to the problems i was having for reasons other than plurality. its affirming to have someone both acknowledge that your experience is unique but also provide a bridge to a shared experience so i dont feel like im totally alienated and unreachable because i have this fundamentally different identity thing underpinning my life

a trans singlet friend who hadnt heard of plurality at *all* (like not even as MPD or in movies or anything) before i came out to them maybe like a couple weeks ago is actually like... thinking and coming to their own conclusions about how plurality and gender intersect and how it 'completely undermines a lot of the assmptions that people have about biology being straight forwardly linked to identity' and relating my experiences with dysphoria about fronting to their experiences with nb dysphoria and its like?? yes good?? very validating and also very encouraging in terms of being more openly plural and actually educating people and stuff

magazines coming with free beauty samples is bad news because i _will_ try them and they _will_ give us an allergic reaction

i go back and forth between whether i like ze/hir or zie/hir so i might just split the difference and use zi

love finding good system memes that i dont wanna reblog because they use the word 'alter' instead of 'headmate'

it seems to be in the area of stuff like disco, funk rock, prog, r&b, stuff like that
if you were wondering :v

that been-fronting-enough-feel when you realize oh! i have a taste in music!

when we were much younger and i was a much more belligerent headmate i woke up at 4am to install ubuntu over mords current operating system
this seems like a much more benevolent prank :v

lb: gonna do that if/when mord decides to install linux on this pc

to be fair,,, i think im gonna end up coming out to them today but i dont want it to be in response to that lmao

going out for coffee with a new singlet friend who im not out to yet and wondering how im gonna answer the inevitable 'so what have you been up to lately?'

i always forget that i like pizza until i see someone else having it and suddenly its the only thing i want to eat
