Let's see, what should I put in an #introduction?
I'm in my thirties, live in #Cologne, #Germany, and like #birds and #nature and #fantasy #writing and #art. I run an occasional #RPG round, the system is #TDE (English version of the German #DSA)
I'm a #programmer, but I don't talk about tech here much and definitely don't prosetylize about OS or programming language choice.
Stuff I mention here includes #FlightRising and #bulletjournal.
I'm on the #asexual spectrum. Pronoun she or they.
The notable part about last night's #dream was trying to learn to teleport by walking down one stretch of road and remembering the sensations of another. So trying to turn this strange road's shoulder into the stretch near my cousin's house back home.
The horse snorted and struck its hoof on the ground. 'You think I mean to drown you.'
'That's what you are, isn't it?'
'And what are you?' asked the horse. 'An office man, some would say. Yet here you are, feral and bargaining with a riverside fae.'
'Bargaining?' The man's question was cautious.
'You are running, are you not? I will bear you to whatever you seek, if you give me one thing in trade.'
'Friendship,' the horse replied. 'I sense you need it as much as I.'
His feet were sore and blistered in his shredded shoes. His shirt was bramble-torn and leaf-stained, his trousers dirty and frayed.
The river was a mirage-like solace, too good to be true. He knelt on the bank and lowered cupped hands into the cool water.
After he had drunk his fill, he turned to see a horse, fur as dark as the blackest mud, with rushes tangled in its mane.
'I've heard of you,' said the man. 'I won't ride you, no matter how sore I am.'

I'd like to have a moment of preparing myself before being confronted with the fuckery Trump is up to.
A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said, "um. We apologise for abducting your leader. We did not notice her coming aboard when we were here last week."
A cat emerged from the spaceship and sat down to clean her paws.
"Here she is," the alien said.

I found a #knitting blog several years ago that I've since lost and been sad about that. It was by someone (female-presenting, I believe) who was knitting around-the-wrist swatches and wearing them for several days, to test blocking and wear and pilling and comfort.
If anyone can point me in the direction of it, I would be very grateful! I think of it often, and wish I'd bothered to bookmark it!
Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob
