I'm a CS undergrad. I like books and computers.
@irieagogo Ugh, I know. Why is the world so awful? And why are the people who actually control the awfulness so awful themselves?
@wallsdonotfall Ugh that's awful. I'm so sorry! :(
@Judith Slutler I'm getting more enthusiastic about this. But I know absolutely nothing about getting writing published. Ranting on my own blog I could handle, probably, but I also know nothing about starting a blog.
Aaugh, I need help and/or advice.
@SarcasticFringehead I know, right? I love science fiction so much, but hot damn if it doesn't fill me with a stabby rage.
I just realized that I typed "to" instead of "too" in my original comment. Too angry to use proper English, evidently.
I like programming, lipstick, penguins, Golden Age science fiction, seething with rage over how hella sexist Golden Age science fiction is, doing math, making delicious food, eating delicious food I just made, and instrumental rock. Also cats.
I have a half-baked ambition of starting a blog where I go through Robert A. Heinlein's works and look at how he treats female characters. And I could post delicious recipes when I'm just to angry to think about Heinlein.
@SarahP My mother is super into weeding. I used to be SO EMBARRASSED when she'd insist on pulling a few weeds in the flower beds outside my grade school.
@or Elsa! Someday I want to have the presence of mine to yell "My grandmother died!" at one of those "smile, sweetheart"-spewing asshats.
No need to mention that my grandmother didn't die recently...
@OhMyGoshYouGuys I refer to applying makeup as "putting on the face that I keep in a jar by the door" and now this guy is sullying it.
@lora.bee I need to learn how to eat with chopsticks. I could eat and write code at the same time!

@tiny bookbot And it's on Project Gutenberg! For free, in a variety of formats! Also I love your name. It's so entirely appropriate for recommending books.
I try never to miss an opportunity to plug Project Gutenberg. Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with them except as an occasional volunteer proofreader.
