Laurie Penny has a new essay out in Wired about stories, fanfic and culture. It's a very good read (but then, she always writes well IMO).

Two years ago, Swedish cycling star Jenny Rissveds was suffering from depression and with an eating disorder. Now she's back and fronting a team named for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 31 that promotes childrens rights

Holy shit, never considered that, but this is likely accurate.

Pi is almost sociable. He's wandering around the house and talking to me now and then - it's only been 4 weeks. The catch is that his dad comes back from holiday tomorrow 😀

20 years ago: I wanna live in the big city!

10 years ago: Maybe somewhere on the outskirts will do?

today: Do they have a cabin in the woods with high-speed Internet?

Pi sitting at the top of the stairs... he's gradually becoming more friendly but likes some distance between us unless I am holding food

@Andrea it certainly had promise and I wish it had continued. What I liked was the more explicit focus on being young adult focused. That's how I remember the first episodes of Dr. Who

I'm babysitting Pi. My brother's off on an overseas holiday, so I am looking after the little boy for a few weeks. He hasn't decided to be friendly yet

Thwart nazi efforts on the play store

If you can, please mark all nazi/freezepeach reviews as unhelpful. The scumbags are boosting those, so turnabout is required.

play.google.com/store/apps/det

Leaving a positive review is also good, of course, but the "mark unhelpful" is safe.

It could also qualify as spam, so maybe use that instead - it's reasonable to assume Google cares more about that.

Pls boost

I am so fucking tired of being surrounded by a beeping, hacking, wretching, coughing, commercial television hospital ward wall of sound. There's no respite from the audiovisual morass that surrounds me and I am really looking forward to spending days of silence in the dark 😱🌑

This is a heartwarming story of how a young mother can combine a (national championship winning) career with looking after her two-year old, but I kept wondering what the father was doing. My guess is that being a professional female cyclist - even in Belgium - doesn't pay enough to enable him to take time off to help look after the child, so he works full time. It would have been nice to read about that side of their situation.

What's my favourite thing today?

Reopening a 50 year old book. As far as I recall, LoTR is one if the first books I ever read. I'd reread it constantly as a child and my ritual each Christmas holiday when I was older was to set aside time to read it when I went home.

I have a newer copy, but my mother sent this down to me a while back and I've just started reading it again after a long break.
