Making some ADHD pizza dough tonight!

It’s like normal pizza dough, except I promised to make it tonight and totally forgot until I was ready to go to bed, so it’s made at 12:30AM 😬

We're all very upset about Governor DeSantis basically turning Florida into Nazi Germany. He's banning books, rewriting history, controlling media narratives, suppressing votes...

We all realize that if he gets elected president, that's his agenda for the whole country, right?

If a Republican wins the next election, they'll also take back the Senate and retain the House.

So...

You know...

This is life and death on a grand scale.

It's so cold in New England right now that "the troposphere could dip below the summit of Mount Washington", which would then be briefly located *in the stratosphere*. WHAT?! This is literally a plot point in The Day After Tomorrow. wmur.com/article/mount-washing

Earlier tonight we checked out a small portion of the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. It’s bananas & they’re making up for lost time - literally. Motel rooms are filled with loose gems, beads, tent after tent — it’s all in full swing. There was even a selection of rose quartz dildos from which I steered my 13 yr old away from before he saw it because awkward. I’m also going to pretend those other polished stones we saw were mushrooms. I mean, fungi is a hot topic lately, after all. 🤷🏻‍♀️

The release train model only works if you don't then have people higher up the chain demanding features be on a specific release. Otherwise you end up with a whole lot of needless screaming and sweating on and before the release train leaves the station.

Guess what always happens.

I got the most BS interview feedback I’ve had in my entire iOS career. I got dinged for making minor mistakes during a pairing exercise (that I corrected in the moment, mind you).

They want to do another technical round (four wasn’t enough!), and surprise, surprise it’s DSA in Leetcode.

If the other company I’m waiting for a response from doesn’t work out, I will seriously consider leaving tech. I’m done with this gatekeeping bullshit.

It's that time of the month again: February's #VulvaDiversity thread. This month, we're parting the bush on a prickly issue: pubic hair!

DO NOT make vulva-shaming remarks or creepy sexualised comments. You'll get blocked if you do.

Once again I am just floored at how little cisgender people are talking about the ongoing efforts to eradicate trans people from the United States.

More and more laws are being proposed and passed to block access to transgender healthcare and now a presidential candidate is promising to ban it nationwide, and it's crickets from all our "allies."

Y'all think we don't hear your silence?

The only "agenda" transgender people have is the right to exist in peace.

Every hashtag on every post on every platform should ALWAYS be pascal case (a.k.a. camel case). I made this to illustrate how screenreaders read hashtags depending on whether they are lowercase or pascal case.

It’s a small thing that all of us can do to build a more inclusive, accessible internet for all. Please take the time to use pascal case.

The mad lads finally did it. Twitter is killing the open API for everyone:

"Starting February 9, we will no longer support free access to the Twitter API, both v2 and v1.1. A paid basic tier will be available instead."

They get zero points for this so-called advance notice - it's not enough time for any app with a significant user base to perform a graceful shutdown.

Twitter's relentless march toward irrelevance continues unabated.

I’ve been wondering when I’d stop posting links to new blog posts on Twitter. Now I know it’ll be February 9.
