Re: How comfortable do you feel asking about someone's race?

I'm mixed race. It's subtle, but detectable in my features. Most white people tend to assume I'm white, and don't ask. People of color, especially others who are mixed race, almost always ask, typically something along the lines of: "Wow you have an amazing profile (or sometimes: cheekbones). W...

Re: When do you go to sleep?

I have narcolepsy. Without medication, I'd be nodding off into little one-minute naps dozens of times a day. So, left to my own devices, my answer to the question "When do you go to sleep?" would have to be: "All the time!" Luckily, I have medication. It wears off by mid-evening ...

Re: what art are you making?

Stencils! For a local plasterer/artist. I'm the artist behind the artist, lol.

Edited to add:
Hm, that's weird. Okay, so apparently I don't know how to attach/upload images. TRUST ME, THEY'RE AWESOME THOUGH

Pfffft. Dancing is for babies who can't handle huddling around awkwardly outside in the smoker's corner pretending to be cool.

Re: Skip, hop, or trot?

I try to do all three at once. While neighing. But the neighing is only so Nech can't say it's not trotting. Normally it would sound more like buffalo grunts.

Re: Women's self defense

One of the things my model mugging class taught was getting yourself down on the floor and lying on your side and using one leg to kick with a stomping-like motion, aiming in particular for knees. For many women, the legs are much more powerful than the arms. There was never any talk of grabbing any...

Re: Why are men so ready to complain...

Yeah, in order to sit on a toilet, you have to do a sort of scooping maneuver to avoid close encounters of the porcelain kind. Nech basically covered it all... but I also have to add that public toilets can actually be really dangerous for men to sit down on. Occasionally, the seats aren't firmly f...

Re: what are you reading?

On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's by Greg O'Brien. Okay, technically I haven't started reading it yet. But my mom-type wants me to read it before she gives it to her friend so there it is, sitting on the coffee table, staring at me in an accusing way while it taps its watch.

Re: what temperature do you set your space?

I only run the AC in summer when it gets above 85 or so. In winter, I like to keep things at a cozy 72, minimum. I'm happiest at 73. I ran super hot for years with undiagnosed Graves' disease so I justify it by telling myself I've got some leeway on the carbon footprint thing.

I took a Model Mugging course in Boston back in the '80s. It was very intense, but very empowering. They're still in business, but only in certain areas. Worth a google!
