So, MWF my acro parter @RussSharek and I open up our living room at 8pm UTC-5 (Dallas time) to a jitsi call at We practice acrobatics, and take a break from the crazy that is the world for several hours. Everyone is welcome to join us! Do whatever it is you feel like doing, and chat with others in a safe space to take that break. Fridays we open up an hour earlier for a coffee and chat hour. I use to announce when the room opens. Feel free to drop by!

time :) I'm an , , (like, actually, professionally). I am learning more about how to fix and build things, and continuing to play and create using free and open software.

In two hours the clowns will start up again!
Looking forward to seeing you there :)

Tonight the clowns return to #CircusInPlace for another session of silliness and circus...two things which are sure to improve almost any Monday.

The nonsense (and the video chat) starts at 8pm UTC-5:

non-binary HRT, looking for resources, boosts welcome 

Does anyone have good resources for folks who are interested in HRT but seeking a middle ground rather than a full transition to being perceived as the opposite binary gender? Located in Washington state if you have anything regionally specific.

Indulge your creativity by drawing, painting, sculpting, etc, even if you don’t think you’re good at it.

Only one hour till the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour!
Join us as the clowns get some caffeine to power an evening of shenanigans at !

A lovely song and video about finding your special clown(ness).

Timely because... tonight some of my best friends are going to throw things at each other, spit water, balance on each other's feet, and chat.

Don't worry - they're professionals.

Tonight's festivities start at 7, US Central , better known as UTC-5.

The Emperor Norton Coffee Hour returns to kick off tonight's #CircusInPlace video chat.

Join us for a cup of whatever suits your fancy starting at 7pm UTC-5, and stick around to watch clowns practice the sorts of gravity defying things that make you say "wow!"

In 1.5-ish hours [8pm UTC-5], you are requested to appear in an online video chatroom. (actual video feed not required, nor is audio, there is a text chat and lurking is allowed, although people are likely to attempt to engage with new attendees)

There will be hackers, geeks, clowns, artists, crafters, furries, anarchists, and generally all-sorts in attendance.
Bring your current project, or just hang out and chat :)

Imaginary studies have shown that clowns are happier when exposed to friendship and conversation.

We call this experiment #CircusInPlace, and we invite you to avoid the doldrums of being in the placebo group by dropping by anytime starting at 8pm UTC-5.

In 2 hours the clowns, sometimes labled "hack-ro-bats", will open up their training space (living room) to host ! If you would like to hang out with clowns, hackers, and other weirdos from the fediverse, come join us!

I've seen a few people use various reminder methods for ADHD and other executive dysfunction/memory issues, and I've used many myself, but as of yesterday I'm trying this method where I have key tags labelled with various tasks attached to carabiners and then I wear the one with the ones I need to do today on myself around the house and it rattles and reminds me stuff needs doing, it worked great yesterday and I'm hoping to keep using it!

The green carabiner is today's task, red is storage for things I don't need to do and the gold one is completed tasks!

I have some labelled Task A, Task B, etc which are for one off rather than regular tasks (which are written on my to do list), and all the others are labelled with specific daily or regular tasks!

Nine out of ten imaginary scientists agree that hanging out with clowns while they train acrobatics is good for your mental health. Join the conversation at #CircusInPlace, and keep those imaginary scientists happy!

The fun starts tonight at 8pm UTC-5:

For any trans people who need to hear this:

Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.

Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.

When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.

Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.

Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. ✨​

(cis people please boost)

See you all at the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour!
..I overslept today and am running behind and therefor there's less than an hour before we open up the
See you there!

Join the clowns tonight for the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour, which kicks off tonight's #CircusInPlace.

Shenanigans of an acrobatic nature to follow. Conversational silliness throughout.

Starting at 7pm UTC-5:

Heard today that a younger family member decided to learn how and buy the gear to digitize the family's stash of vhs tapes.
I was proud of them, and immediately tried to figure out whether to/ how to get them in touch with @ajroach42 .
I mean, I don't know whether they have a big interest in preservation of media, or if there was just a vhs they wanted to be able to watch from their computer, but it was still my first thought.

In two hours we will be starting up the video chat!

I'm really looking forward to just chilling with friends and moving and challenging my body.
See y'all there!

I had a day yesterday, and forgot to post. So today's a 2fer!

19 the Tower

apparently I can't just mark the picture with animal eye contact in it as sensitive, so.. they both get blurred *shrug*

After a really stress-filled day yesterday, I'm really looking forward to spending time with online friends in #CircusInPlace tonight.

Thank you all in advance for coming to visit the clowns as we practice throwing ourselves at the floor, acrobatically speaking.

See you starting at 8pm UTC-5:

T-2 hours till
Looking forward to stretching, doing acrobatics, and talking with some of my favorite people :D
Hope to see you there!
