The doctor I’m going to be contacting today is Jonathan Wells who seems pretty good at least on paper but I haven’t heard any specific recommendations aside from seeing him listed in My Trans Health. He checks all the right boxes for me though (apparently 10% of his patients are trans, and he focuses on chronic issues, although I think that might just be HIV/AIDS and not fibro/EDS).

While we’re on it, Dr. Fields at Kaiser Capitol Hill is also amazing, but he’s also way too far away, and Kaiser in general is pretty hit-or-miss (especially with chronic disorder shit). And of course Kaiser has strict insurance requirements (namely, you have to be a member of their HMO).

I already know about Rongitsch; I used to see her and she was really good but I had to switch because of insurance reasons and unfortunately she always has an ENORMOUS waiting list, plus downtown Seattle is further away than I want to go anymore.

Basically, I’m in White Center and my mobility/transportation access is limited, don’t make me drive 45+ minutes on the freeway to get to them

Yesterday I had such a bad experience with my doctor that today I’m going to be seeking a new doctor. There was an accumulation of papercuts that was bad enough but yesterday I had an appointment with her which was absolutely AWFUL.

Anyone in the Seattle area know of any good trans-friendly chronic-disorder-savvy general practitioners, ideally in West Seattle or Burien and without a long-ass waiting list?

Here's a comic about what clothing designers must think women say. I don't believe this is how anybody really feels about trying to buy clothes.

Dumb idea for a Stadia game 

A vaguely-interactive screensaver which also wastes a crapton of Google's resources, giving people something fun to stare at while funneling money over to the developer and costing Google a lot of CPU capacity. Maybe it also mines crypto idk

Anyone have any favorite zucchini recipes? I swear I only planted one small plant

Playing NES tetris for the first time in a long time. Holy heck I'd forgotten just how rough this was compared to modern variants. Lack of 7-bag, no hold slots, and messed up slide makes it incredibly different.

It feels like something's gone very wrong when cast-resin fake wood barrels are orders of magnitude cheaper than actual wood barrels.

So it’s kind of cool how all of the current series are Internet-service first. Somehow they aren’t as good as Enterprise though. Well, except Lower Decks.

Show thread

When Enterprise first aired I remember it being one of the first times I’d downloaded a video that was in better than 480p resolution, and it was difficult to play it well. I’m pretty sure it was in DivX;-) format because h.264 didn’t exist in any meaningful way at the time.

It was also probably one of the first things I’d downloaded via the then-new BitTorrent protocol.

It’s ridiculous how long ago the last broadcast Star Trek TV series was.

In a way, aren’t mittens a kind of fingerless glove?

For that matter, you know how weird it seems that it was a big deal that the ship's computer had copies of 50,000 movies and they were all old crap from the 1960s and earlier, in SD?

Here's your reminder that Enterprise also predated YouTube.

"We should have brought a camera," says Captain Archer, hiking in the wilderness, carrying a phaser and a communicator but no cellphone with a camera.

It's a great reminder that Enterprise was made in a time before cameraphones.

oh wow this is great, if you search my name on it gives results for my deadname, WHAT THE FUCK

the cd-i games have a wider variety of enemies than BotW

It's weird how as the Zelda series has progrsesed it feels like it has fewer enemies, not more

Every time the Roomba bumps into Werner, Werner looks at me and glares like it's my fault.

I mean, he's not wrong.
