My personal diary.

And it can be unmade.
I took a picture which sucks too much to post, but I untucked my whole area of the fridge (live with roomies so I have the top shelf, top door, and one veggie drawer). I removed ALL of my food from the fridge, tossed out a bunch of iffy leftovers, took out my whole shelf and drawer, washed/dried/reinserted them, and put my food back in logical order according to frequency of use & food category. Then I cooked myself a kick-ass fish and veggie fried rice from the good leftovers I fished out.
Now I know exactly what is in my fridge and exactly where it is. My inner OCD demon is momentarily satiated.
Tl dr: cleaned fridge, cooked awesome food, life is better for both.
Anonymous asked: FYI on the Facebook pronouns. I selected "them" and I now show up on my family's pages as their son/brother. I had my gender censored from them in a custom privacy setting but FB kinda inadvertently outed me. Just in case anyone is in the same boat, passing that along.
Oh wow. That’s kinda shitty—
Ahh, so not only are neutral pronouns getting masculine defaults for relation terms (really, it should be sibling, child, spouse, etc), relation terms aren’t ACLed.
This raises the question: how would you ACL those relationship terms? I mean, you have to put something there; otherwise that would flag as suspicious. I suppose showing gender-neutral terms as described above for anyone who doesn’t have the ACL is the obvious solution, but even that could be strange. I can just see: “My profile says you’re my ‘child’, now. What’s up with that?”
Really the ideal seems to be that, for safety, some people shouldn’t know you’ve set a custom gender.
So the real solution here is to allow a user to set multiple custom genders, each with a separate ACL list. So you can have a public / family view gender, and then a ‘for friends I’m out to’ gender, at a minimum.
In the meantime, signal boost, because this is going to be non-obvious to a whole lot of people and doesn’t seem to be documented anywhere.
