Hug your local small nonprofit workers.
They're hyper exploited and are taught that since they get to work for a cool cause they shouldn't get paid market rate for their work.
They're often told to do "more with less" and are working within microcosm of neoliberal austerity. Board members often want to run the orgs like a business, which further alienates the worker from the ideals they work for.
Ah. Hmm. Nova Scotian government messes up its own information security and then arrests a 19-year-old fledgling archivist who merely scraped their public freedom-of-information servers.

LB: my parents never teased me and it made me have a hard time understanding other people teasing later on, but I think it was good for me.
hey parents, if you're ever considering teasing your children, consider this advice:
We have library donors visiting, etc. etc., and apparently last night one of them told folks she worked in the cataloging department in 1955.
...the head of cataloging at the time had a rule re: conversation. 2 social sentences per day. One in the morning. One in the afternoon. Every other conversation must be about cataloging.
...nice job lady from forever ago, scared off a baby cataloger but luckily she still likes us & gives us $?
THE GAME, SHE CONTINUES!
Y'all they're not looking at my blog. it's right there. it's linked! They could just *waving, gesturing hands*
Who _I_ am is so boring.
...should I start doing something fun like only displaying different versions of my photo to them? Perhaps one which says "Howdy there, Ohio!"
LB -- the accessibility one -- this is serrrriously a thing. Some other stuff like the pre-cut squash and whatnot in grocery stores (where it's cut in/by the store and thus only lasts a few days) -- that shit is critical for my mental health sometimes. Living separately from my husband is hard and some weeks I need help cooking food for myself, which is the best choice if I can.
