oh I see why HTTPS Everywhere is not triggering on DW. Somenoe's written a ruleset that disables it, probably because HTTPS didn't work before.

(But as far as I know, there shouldn't be anything breaking any more)

I cannot yet figure out how to get it updated though. Hmmm.

All settled in

I have now fully unpacked and put all my things into their proper places (including the things I'd mentally tagged miscellaneous that I'd tucked into my carryon) (including the yarn I'd somehow picked up on my travels).

Status update

I'll be in the Bay Area for the foreseeable future.

If you're in the area too, I'd love to meet up <3

Power came back :) I feel a bit silly posting the previous entry now -- figured once darkness hit the power company would be forced to stop working because of how dangerous it isn't, so I went and posted expecting to be gone another night.

But they've exceeded my expectations! I feel super grateful to them now. Power come to meeeeee

Blackout

Big storm went through my area knocked out power in basically the whole metro. Coming back slowly area by area but I'm not sure when mine will have power again.

(Maybe tomorrow! Power company's been doing a reasonable job especially considering a lot of electric poles were downed by the wind)

Minimal flooding as far as I can tell, though cell signal has also suffered pretty bad in my area from the storm so I haven't been able to go online much to get news. I wander over to my dad's radio every once in a while to get some idea of what's going on but you know.

I've had a couple people email me asking if I'm well and I just want to reassure you all I'm safe <3

(And now going to hope this email post gets through somehow through the magic of background connections!)

of belated news

ummmmmmmm so I'm in SF from May 2 - June 4 :D? I kept meaning to post about it and suddenly oops it's ten days I've been here and apparently I never did say anything

I have no willpower

and also I'm suddenly interested in BPAL.

These two things have nothing to do with one another (by which I mean at this moment in time they have everything)

lock, unlock

The lock to our front door has been pretty stubborn and difficult to open, to the point where I worry that I'll break the key (or my fingers!) trying to unlock it.

So tonight, with no one else in the house, I had the brilliant idea to use WD40 to un-stubborn the lock. I figured it would be easy: point the straw into the lock, press the button, done.

Instead I just got it all over my hands, because apparently I don't understand how the spray nozzle works /o\

(It might be broken. Or it might be that I'm misunderstanding something about this whole process. But seriously it's probably broken... maybe)

And then I realized I could smear some of the WD40 on my fingers onto the key and get it to work anyway \o/

I didn't need that straw anyway :3

(gsoc is coming up, which means that any project big enough that I can study it to learn a new programming language is probably also big enough that it'll be swamped by gsoc applications / mentoring all the other new people. So I actually chose a pretty horrible time and maybe I should go do something else now and come back to this another time)

Also of the good:

* I submitted a patch to django a couple days ago. There's been absolutely activity on it since... and then this morning when I woke up, I saw a notification telling me it had been committed during the night \o/

(this is doubly fantastic, because I've been wanting to work on another one, but hadn't felt comfortable spamming with patches; just in case it comes off impatient, or ends up making too much work for someone else)

(yes this is even though I'd happily accept a ton of patches from the same person at the same time for DW -- the thing is, I don't know if other projects work the same way)

* people treating me extra nice and special and exactly the way I want, and making me happy <3

* birthday noodles in the morning for long life. Cake after dinner for happy life~

* oh yeah the django thing netted me 0.00000217 Ƀ as a commit tip. I find that hilarious for some reason

(but I decided eh I'll play along and try to claim this. First step, download a bitcoin client. okay! second step, download the current blockchain, which is 14+ gigs. Uh. Sure?)

[personal profile] skud's latest entry reminded me that I haven't been updating about life stuff because my life hasn't seemed exciting or interesting, but I do like rambling on about stuff I'm doing here. It's a comfort :)

So:

  • I'm trying to learn python, just because. I itch for more... people? activity? interaction? maybe all of the above

  • went to pycon ph. The python community is even friendlier than I'd expected :3 I kinda want to leap in and contribute somehow... somehow

  • still doing makeup

  • stripped off my makeup and put on jeans for the conference because ehhhhhhh I wish both modes of myself were compatible, but even if they might be ehhhhhhhhhhh wasn't doing that this weekend (i have a mental image of myself as bruce banner and hulk. Except that instead of green skin I get sparkly pink stuff all over me)

  • I was chatting about pycon with a friend and he remarked that the tech scene in the PH seems young and vibrant. Thoughts about that bouncing through my mind, not sure I'll ever gather them enough to be useful but... yeah thoughts

  • back to hooping again :) I'm trying to do it at least once a week -- hopefully more, but realistically I can't do it much more often than that especially since uhhh

  • I signed up for capoeira classes. umm. stuff. grace. balance. stuff

  • I have recently realized that my mental image of myself as being physically awkward, unable to move my body properly, not very put together/groomed might be a bit out of date. I'll never be naturally graceful, and I'll always be clumsier than most people, but... it has slowly dawned on me that when I dance people don't see me as "the awkward person dancing", I'm just a person who dances who may have awkward moments but not extraordinarily different in degree from anyone else

    (note: the above was not me going from low self-esteem to high self-esteem or whatever. I really was super awkward; it's just that years of dancing even while awkward has actually changed the way I moved, without my realizing it)

  • "X got cancer even though he's vegetarian; probably he wasn't eating organic" -- I'm tired of food issues :( I refuse to engage anymore

  • Still not cooking

  • OH OH I danced with a fire hoop two weeks ago :) I still haven't watched that video though; afraid of what I'll see

    (I managed to snort fire up my nose oh god I hope nobody noticed)

  • I also need to watch the video of the talk I gave at LCA... but still afraid of what I'll see. haha. ha.

  • completely exhausted from pycon, even though I didn't really do anything. but still exhausted so off I go

  • ETA: tomorrow is definitely a day to put on neon lipstick, cheery nails, and just stay at home and code

    (I thought I could resist until tomorrow but have slathered on purple balm before bed :-))

Friends

It is nice to have friends you can be completely and utterly ridiculous with :)

Asfgdhhhhgh. My cough has progressed to the point that I'm about to lose my voice. So I'm amusing myself by saying, "help help" (in the very tiny voice I have left)

I... Am imagining that it's my voice calling for help not me okay? Somehow that seemed less weird in my head.

I am sick of being sniffly and sick so I have gone full fuckit mode and have painted my eyes the brightest colors I have.

Close up of my eye -- decided to skip my whole face because my hair is kinda fever-gross right now.

Blue + yellow = green. Bright and cherry colors yay.
