My friend just told me of a genius idea: her friend & partner have a secret signal for when they have guests. If one of them makes themselves a hot drink in a specific mug, that means ‘I grow weary of company, please help guests out of the door.’

I find the details of almost everything, but especially other people's jobs, fascinating.
Not job related but this morning I fell down a hole of the history of a member image I've seen forever and not really understood https://knowyourmeme.com/editorials/guides/who-is-soyjack-the-meme-and-wojak-character-explained

Lovely.

@jpmens I love it when this happens. I wrote a tiny post about getting histogram data out of mysql years ago and it occasionally pings with a comment saying thanks

By Thursday morning the ache of swimming on Tuesday nighrbl has really bedded in. Just in time for swimming tonight. There is also a Sunday class, which I am considering but I would probably then ache all week. And smell of chlorine 24/7

During the Great Depression, the U.S. government did something extraordinary: it created the America Eats Project, sending writers around the country to document American eating. An archive of recipes, community cookbooks and more

I'm currently pushing the idea that our component library's tests should be a separate package (in a monorepo), so we're testing the real built version of the library, and also the package.json exports.

Folks are a little uncomfortable that the component's tests are in a different folder to the implementation.

Is there a solution to this that isn't… very hacky?

@jaffathecake Symlink!!!! (may contain hacks)

Kitchen looks like an abattoir. blood everywhere because i sliced into my finger cutting into the bread to make a tomato & crisp sandwich.

Sandwich tastes a bit iron-y but on the plus side i won't get anemia

#Pride #AsianHate #Gay

#PrideMonth is a rough time for me. I know I belong in the #LGBTQ+ community, it's inclusive for all, but I've experienced a lot of Asian hate/racism from within the community in the past. It should be better now since there's more awareness of Anti-Asian hate, but Pride Month triggers past trauma and it's hard to let it go.

When I came out to my friends, I lost most of them. Afterwards, I tried using gay apps to connect with people. The amount of fetishization that happened from within, not to mention descriptions of "no femmes, fats, or asians", I grew incredibly depressed. I hated my body and my ethnicity. It wasn't until I met my amazing partner that he pulled me out of self-deprecation and helped me raise my self-esteem/self-worth. I started embracing my ethnicity, personality, and differences. I'm much happier now.

I want to remind people to be open. Racism/prejudice/hate can come from places one might not expect. You never know what experiences one has been through either.

@FalconMarkSix as a straight, white, European guy I have nothing to compare this to, but loneliness and isolation suck and I'm sorry you lived through this.
