In recent months I have gone from being able to wear underwire bras for a few hours to rarely being able to wear underwire bras at all. I have many lovely colorful underwire bras that have not seen much wear, and I am hoping some of you might be interested in buying some of them, as I am broke and still looking for a job.

Sized 42G/44F, exciting teals and magentas and also some standard beiges and blacks, all with underwire of course, some padded, some unlined/mesh.

I am requesting $17 for one bra, $12 each for any subsequent bras, no shipping charge in the US lower 48 (I can look into shipping costs elsewhere if desired). These were all around $50 when brand new, so this is a steal!

I very rarely if ever have the patience to make my own pie crusts, but I also usually dislike storebought ones (pilsbury, usually is what i can find) to the extent of why did I even bother to give this thing a crust?

but I have discovered that I actually like trader joe's house brand pre-made frozen pie crusts. The main flavor difference is that down in the bottom of of the ingredients, just before salt, is sugar. strangely, I suppose, I think a sweet pie should have an at least moderately sweet crust? texturally and/or digestively, when reading ingredients to figure out what the difference, it turns out pilsbury uses xanthan gum. so much for them.

Neil Young - Hitchhiker

Um, can we (or I) please talk about the new/old Neil Young album that just came out? Hitchhiker, it's called. It's basically a lost album, recorded one night in 1976. It's just Neil and his guitar (and a harmonica), and it's pretty fucking great, man!!

Only two of the ten songs are "new" songs ("Hawaii" and "Give Me Strength"), but I'd only heard a few of the songs before (different versions, of course). There's a stripped down version of "Powderfinger" on there that's really nice!! It's the second track. I also really loved the title track, which I'd never heard before!

I mean, really though, every track on this album is great! I've heard a fair amount of his albums, but I think I'm going to make it a point to listen to all 38(!) of them, even the ones that aren't as popular. I just love Neil Young! Can't get enough! Even have thought about getting a Neil Young related tattoo! Not a portrait or anything like that, but like some sort of reference? I adore his music that much!! ❤🎶

Anyway, if you like Neil Young, you can listen to Hitchhiker on Spotify! It's also on Youtube they took it down.

Goodbye, LJ

I deleted my LJ tonight. I made a little post the other day, saying goodbye and wishing my LJ friends the best (even though one of them hurt my feelings [which I know is easily done]* I'm too damn sensitive).

I have about 5 friends who actually still post there, who I left behind. But I'm at peace with it now. I mean, they know where to find me (here, on DW), I made sure of that, trust me! 😂 I practically begged them all to follow me over to DW, but hey, what can ya do? The ball's in their court.

It's sort of like when you're courting a dude. Like, if he likes you, he'll call. That sorta thing. And if they like me, they'll come find me. And if they don't like me... Well then what fuck?? 😂😂😂

mustbeliked
me AF


Anyway...

See ya LJ, wouldn't wanna be ya!!! 👋

*Nothing serious, just ignoring my comments - very nice comments too, I thought! Maybe I was just a little too forward? I really don't know what the deal is... Maybe that person is just a jerk! Oh, well! It happens!

This is genocide

So I’ve been following the situation of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, in desultory fashion, for a couple of years. The UN’s said they’re “the most persecuted minority” in the world, and that’s before the current disaster. They’re denied citizenship in Myanmar, even when born there, so they’re stateless, which renders them unable to leave (no passports) or access basic government services including education and healthcare.

And the situation has devolved horribly.

On the 25th of August, Rohingya militants attacked security services, and are still fighting the army. The army has unleashed a horrifying wave of violence in response - it’s unambiguously ethnic cleansing, and has four of the five identifying signs of genocide. The Myanmar army is trying to wipe out the Rohingyas entirely.

They’re burning villages. They’re shooting fleeing civilians en masse and drowning children. The government is refusing to let aid workers through with medicine, food, and water. There have been convulsions of violence before, particularly last year and in 2012, described by the UN as “crimes against humanity”; there was gang rape and torture, murder and disappearances. This is worse.

I know there’s Brexit and Irma and Harvey and the possibility of nuclear war, but we can’t let a million people get swept under the rug. They’re fleeing for their lives into Bangladesh, but the border is technically closed and border guards have refused hundreds of people trying to get out. Bangladesh has called for an end to the violence but it’s not enough. Thousands of people are now trapped in the mountains, their homes burnt behind them, the borders closed to them, the government refusing to let aid workers in and security forces closing in.

I wrote to my MP yesterday asking her to do something about this. The text is under a cut below - it’s not in any way good, really, but it is text you can use. Amnesty International has an article about the situation, with a a petition to sign, and a link to the Twitter of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar’s army, and a suggested Tweet. We’ve got to show we care, and that we’re paying attention. Otherwise the Myanmar government will have no incentive to stop this.
