Do we want to take another month off? If you want to start up again, @ me with suggestions #yamgbookclub
Have any of you had good personal experience with using a lawyer's assistance to force health insurance companies to cover procedures, especially transgender health care (which is supposed to be covered by the insurance policy anyway)? I need recommendations for individual lawyers who you've personally had good experiences with about this.
I also see books I want to give away
We did it, folx! The #Macmillan Embargo has been walked back!
Hi I'm over here reminded that teenagers today weren't alive in the 90s. Now excuse me I have to collapse into a pile of ash.
#AmReading "The Gravity of Us"
mediation is tomorrow, eviction today, help needed, please boost
...our landlord just texted and said if we can't pay our back rent, they will need to find someone else for our rental space.
Mediation is tomorrow, and they know that.
I reminded them that mediation should cover our rent for the rest of the year, and have shut off my phone for now.
I have to focus on the mediation, rather than the lack of digital currency to sustain my survival past tomorrow morning.
Literally anything helps, we owe $530.30 for this month, and $313.50 from last month.
If you can help out at all, my gofundme is still the most reliable way to send money (unless you're on Simple Banking, in which case DM me or @woozle).
Book recs please!
Hey, I'm looking for recs for fluffy books on Kindle Unlimited or free-to-access sites. I'm going to be looking to bury myself in books for the next couple weeks bc mental health shit.
Romance and SFF in particular, well written with minimal sexist, racist, or ableist tropes, queer preferred, polyam preferred, no billionaires.
Emphasis on fluffy. Light reading only please.
#Riffle's DNS hosting appears to have expired? 🤨 I wonder if this is the end.
i keep my twitter account to follow other authors and every once in a while we get treated to a rare sight: A well published author having their work criticized for unintentional racism or other bigotry, the author apologizing, internalizing the lesson, and then announcing working with their publisher to have the incident removed from future printings.
like thats not so hard. wish certain other authors did the same thing.
#AmReading "Kindness and Wonder" by Gavin Edwards.
It's about Mister Rogers. I miss him 😭
Nancy Drew S1:E11
Seriously the episode took forever to watch because I was also browsing etsy
Okay. Superhero question.
We have poor superheroes (Guillotine Tony Stark), but have any solved their poverty by sponsorship, which then creates problems?
Superhero: 🤔 Let's see, this evil billionaire has started an evil cult, but the mattress company he owns sponsors me. Well, shit 🤷
I feel like there's ripe ground here
