Re: do you use a lawnmower?

No, I don't have a lawn. I think I mowed my parents' lawn like... twice? when I was growing up.

Re: Have you been in a car accident?

Rowan, what??? They thought you were going to run the red light?? That kind of reminds me of an accident my mom was in some years ago: she was T-boned by a car that ran a red light, and was found to be partially at fault for having assumed they would stop. (It was in Oklahoma, and we're thinking the...

Oh no, that's awful! I'm so sorry - losing all of those irreplaceable personal items must be horrible. I worry about that a lot, and how to protect things like that.

Re: Knee Surgery

No, that’s awesome to hear!! They were able to save my mensiscus although still touch and go so anything that can help me heal is great. Thank you so much for letting me know, I really appreciate.

Re: Knee Surgery

I'm sorry Bork! I had that surgery half my lifetime ago under similar circumstances. All I did was step on a curb a bit off while running, and then try to convince doctors that I wasn't just a drug seeker. What counts as success? Best of luck to you! What in the world??? Did they think you had inte...

Knee Surgery

Well shit. Apparently my knee is super fucked up and I'm having surgery on Wednesday. Surgeon says he wishes he could go back in time and operate two or three weeks ago. My meniscus tore, and then flipped over itself really badly, which is why I still (almost five weeks later) can't straighten my kn...

Re: Leelah Alcorn's situation wouldn't have gotten better. (Trigger Warning)

This is a good example of why I’m not really into the idea of “it gets better.” People shouldn’t have to wait and continue to suffer because at some point in the unknown future their situation will improve. Things only get better if people actively help make it better.

Re: light hearted bitch-post.

Ewwwwwwwww splashy toilets are so gross. And why are auto-flushing toilets either INCREDIBLY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT FLUSHING or completely unresponsive??? I'm not a huge fan, although I also don't like that people step all over the flusher things on self-flush toilets.

Re: MOST FAVORITEST COOKIE?!?!?!?

This reminds me that I've been meaning to make thumbprint cookies...

I picked chocolate chip, although I would like to ...

Re: Are there any leftovers in your refrigerator right now?

There are usually always leftovers in the fridge. I think right now I have roasted carrots, bok choy and... I know I have at least one other thing but I can't remember and don't feel like hobbling to the fridge.

The leftover food doesn't always get eaten, but it usually gets saved.

Re: Are you right handed or left handed?

I'm right handed. That said, I find it silly that people test for handedness in films by throwing objects at them. If someone did that to me I'd catch with my left hand, because I did that in baseball and other sports. Ditto! If you throw something at me, I'm probably going to catch it with my left...

Re: are you afraid of spiders?

Horribly so. Absolutely terrified of them. If they're outside I'll let them live, since that's their space, but if they're inside they're smushed. ...as soon as I work up the nerve to get close enough to smush them, which sometimes takes a while. Last summer I had a spider DANGLING OFF MY SWEATSHIRT...

Re: Knee

It’s more of a handle problem - it’s got a vertical handle instead of curved so there’s not a surface I can really push down on. Urgent care opens in two hours and eight minutes and hopefully they’ll be able to set me up with crutches and drugs.
