Pinned toot

Oh, we should actually update our profile and pin something better, but for now...

If it wasn't clear from what we toot, we are recently discovered plural
On top of that, came the dawning realisation that when forced to recognise the others within, that we were not male. In fact the fronting construct personality, was just playing the male role for protection of the group
So, we are currently lacking in spoons because of dysmorphia that once it came on, became relentless.

Something by the way of a refreshed

Before this instance there was and before that

If you have come across those and see me here, you may or may not notice subtle changes.

I shared this with my OH 2 days ago.

It is not *exactly* me, but closer than I can articulate at the moment. Good enough.

My tribe is dysfunctional at the moment and in need of remediation.

I need to step aside and let them breath.

So I may not be the person familiar when I post.

I could make alternative accounts, but that's fracturing us when we need to come together. Indeed it is something to an extent, reflecting, I have done in the past.

Because you have interacted with me before, you *do not* need to in the future. We have no expectation. Mute, unfollow, etc... There are tools. Use them.

We desire to cause no discomfort, but this is *new* to us.

Equally, please continue if you like.

My language might change, be inconsistent and fluid. So do *not* stress or be precious about it in turn. No offence will be taken.

I need to write this all better, in a blog, not toots. But I feel an explanation is in order of sorts, here and elsewhere.

I used to describe myself as an anarchic socialist at heart. My tribe requires that of me now, or at least something better.

Maybe all of these decades we can find some semblance of lasting peace.

Ageing hacker, remembers war dialling. Into wandering the hills, bodyweight fitness, yoga, meditation & heavy metal.

Upped and moved to North Scotland. Here to climb trees, swim in lochs and wander the mountains.

Twice broken by modern life. NDE by self direction, only here because of the actions of a soul mate.

Rebuilt the first time and discovered spirituality, meditation and chaos magic.

Rebuild 2 currently ongoing. Delving into animism and shamanic practice.

Windy and low cloud today on the hill.

Snow is greatly reduced, and people increased.

The number of red socks and gaiters amongst those that are out and about is more in one day, than we have seen in total since Christmas 😝

That loch was frozen over last week, and today was the first time on steep stuff we haven't needed an axe due to ice for a *long* time.

It's that time of year where the gorse starts to flower, and becomes a riot of yellow on the hills.

So, the obligatory shot of yellow and green against the clear blue sky of a spring morning. 😀

Our eldest child was visited by a crow this morning, hopped in the window and sat on a pile of clothes and watched her do some of her online exam.
Told her she needs to develop this friendship.

Seems that because she struggles at the moment being outside, some of outside is coming to her.


phone anxiety, annoyed 

you can literally just text "hi im xy from z, and will call you now" right before calling and it would make it a lot easier for me to pick up even if i still didn't really know who you are

Hello I have 20+ years of SRE/DevOps/Sysadmin and programming experience. Do you know an appropriate job for me for around 30 hours a week? Are you hiring? DM me!



Did you know that your monitor is made out of "blob cat pic cells"?

Each blobcat pic cell has three blobcats

:blobcatred: Red
:blobcatgreen: Green
:blobcatblue: Blue

Each of those three blobcats can make any color your want!


Our disabled and chronically ill one income household lost our one income for Autism Acceptance month, because working partner @transmundane is autistic. :DumpsterFire:

Please boost their toot

Glorious weather today.
Washing drying on the whirly outside.
Lizards out on the rocks sunning themselves, but too quick for pictures.
Hard to believe how there are still pockets of snow even down low, given the wonderful sunshine.

views from a mountain 

celebrated being able to travel further than 5km for the first time this year by going for a sunset hike up errigal

it's the third time i've been up this mountain and it was definitely the toughest ascent so far given how little walking/hiking/climbing/general exercise i've done in the last few months but the views at the top took away what little was left of my breath, definitely worth it

When we get laser treatment*, which has been on hold for far too long 😬, we get a battery of questions about symptoms and contacts.

NHS hub, nope 😝
It's fine. We don't have a preference one way or another.
But, damn, the inconsistencies everywhere are a nightmare to navigate.

*(Something else we are paying for, grrr. Hormones, laser, counselling all self funded)

Had to go and get blood taken at a local hub so they were available for endocrinology, who seem to be finally after months*, picking up our hormone therapy.

No complaints with the service, nurse, apart from some oddities.
She couldn't cope with not using our officially recorded forename, despite correction.
Secondly, there was ZERO covid symptom questions.

*(Be interesting how much longer it takes them to then *actually* take over treatment and we can stop paying for all of our own meds 🤷)
