THAT'S what you apologize for. Not mistaking us for the types of people who might cohabitate with Nazis, no, just wasting our time.

Your priorities are warped, and that's me trying to be nice. There's only worse I can say about you. Q-adjacent conspiracist nonsense, thonk-emoji brained schemes you claim to be to hurt the Nazis you're trying to impress and buddy up to. Amazing.

You aren't going to be my new chewtoy only because ultimately your lack of conviction means it wouldn't be any fun. You wouldn't dig your heels in, screech like a howler monkey or shit all over the floor. You'd give puppy-dog eyes and stand down with a meek "yes Curse, of course Curse". My subs put up more of a fuss -- when they want something I'm offering.

You aren't prepared for the future. I mean, no one is, but you're going to have a particularly hard time of it.

This. So much better than I could have said it.
But - same thing. Go fuck yourself.

Anyway, the last thing I have to say on the subject, is my apologies for wasting everyone's time.

What particularly annoys me is that 1.) You tried to run an experiment on us, without our knowledge or consent, and especially 2.) It was a really stupid experiment.

I've been gone that long, I'm basically new again.

Who's left? And if someone could list the current grudges and factions it would speed things up tremendously.

Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

I have a grudge against everyone who left here for Facebook.

If it's for anything Uncle BadTouch related, then shame. SHAME.

I ran rong out of town on the back of a billion fundie spam emails. I felt nothing.

Other than that, it seems like it's just the toothiest of us left. If they can smile for anything other than threat signals, they ran away. It's a bad decade to be bipedal, soft and unarmed.
I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me.

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

and

me.

The factions are, of course, all of THEM against ME, because they know I have access to the world's most questionable sushi, and they want it.  They send the now-unemployed Antignano Brothers around to harass me and try to steal it, but I am much too clever and ate it, even the stuff that hadn't gone past the use-by date that Quiktrip stamped on the plastic wrap.

I see.

I also see Terry. Terry is the resident workplace ist. 30/40/30 racist, sexist, other ist.

For fun, I brought it up at break, just the concept of sushi. I got 5 minutes of "seahorses are fucked up, yo."  something something gender concept something.

It's fucking insane here.

You should move here, where it's normal.  Also, it's the middle of the night and it's still 8 centigrade outside.

It has been effectively over two years since posting with any regularity here, or anywhere but Facebook really. I keep making poetry and memes... Also poememes. I in some ways do not much internally, mentally resemble who I was as 2020 came to a close and I moved in profound desperation to New Orleans where I knew only that it would be warm, and food in great abundance.

I have so far nearly died twice here, once just this last Thanksgiving season from complications of my mRNA "vaccine", a bad case of RSV, and a previously undetected allergy to all food that I have probably had since early childhood at least. The other time was during hurricane Ida when a tree limb big enough to crush the part of the house I was sheltering in missed the house by a foot or so. Moreover I have mutated spiritually in largely beneficial ways just from "ordinary" daily living here and constantly being hip deep in eccentric geniuses to talk to and occasionally befriend. I am at a bit of a loss for the words to articulate it more specifically and so will try to tell a fiction that reflects very real events both internal and external.

The very good news is that I have largely manages to re-integrate myself after the solder saver poisoning in early 2020. I still have unfinished business on that score, but it is nowhere nearly as important as maintaining my current state of well-being. Since changing my diet and other habits I am physically in better condition than ever in my living memory. I have lost about 14+ inches from my waistline in 2 years and cutting all carbohydrates has further thinned my face and extremities by stopping allergic inflammation and water retention. I feel nearly weightless when I walk now, and even at still 385 lbs I can go 5 miles with essentially no breaks and recover in a half hour rest.

I am very glad to be back on pd, dead or not. I have A LOT to say and this is the place for much of it. Good to see you guys!

Bolded is very accurate.

Also hi (again?)

I don't know how many folks will remember me. I am a little surprised to find that this place is still alive and kicking, but I'm very glad it is.

Trying to think of a succint way to sum up where I am at these days, uh... I think this is the best I've got:

I'm a trans woman living in Britain who chose 2022 to come out. My capacity for suffering is matched only by my desire to test it. I will make the bastards kill me and it seems they'll be happy to oblige before the decade is out.
I had an existential crisis and all I got was this stupid gender.

I don't know if we knew each other in my brief time here. I went through a dozen names (Cait, Erin, nullified) before settling on my current name, and I was intermittent and usually in crisis whenever I /was/ here.

But more queers are always welcome in my book, and the British are the enemy of any right thinking person already, so I'm inclined to default to friendliness.
