Preparing the potions class syllabus.
I'm crying just listening to your testimony, Christine. I have such deep respect and admiration for you to be able to do this at all, let alone with such poise and grace.
Women must walk a fine line. Cry, and we're dismissed as too emotional or hysterical. Don't cry, and we're told that we're not very upset, so it mustn't have been that bad.
Call your senator and say something like this:
“I’d like to encourage the senator to call for Kavanaugh’s withdraw from office and the nomination. We don’t need yet another sexual predator in office.
I would also like to encourage the senator to demand a trauma-based investigation around these multiple allegation.”
You have a voice. Use it.
It only takes a few moments.
Call twice to speak to both senators’ staff.
Keep talking, Christine. We’re listening, and we believe you.
Using Affinity Publisher Beta to layout #HarryPotter invitations and potion booklets. It’s good to be working in layout again after so many years away, losing hours in a project, although I’m not sure my right arm agrees.
I will have a large number of pins with me to hand out to anyone at #xoxofest who’d like one. I’ll also see if I can leave a few strategic caches out for folks that might want to avoid human contact in acquiring one.
Last year during Iceland’s ice cream festival, where there’s often new flavors introduced, they had a special new ice cream made from human breast milk.

Happiness is sharing a GitHub Harry Potter project with my brilliant partner @BrianEnigma. He's such an inspiration. 💜
