i was busy thinkin bout [GIRLS]


I went ahead and put probably a tad too much money on one of those cute round japanese rice cookers on the local auction site, but I got it for like 30% (they're usually like 200 bucks and I paid 60) and I love it SO MUCH. early birthday present to me

I wanted one since the time I saw a little video on a japanese restaurant serving these cute dome pancakes made in rice cookers, and I'm delighted to announce that it's perfect

and by the way you can make a big ol pancake in any rice cooker by cooking regular pancake batter on the standard white rice setting. check the middle to make sure it's done all the way though

I got mine two years ago and it was kind of a blur of excitement so I can't actually remember any tips other than "don't try to drive six hours in the same day a week after your operation" which is really more a personal error than anything. but if it helps I can tell you that my surgery hurt way less than I prepared myself for? it hurt a lot from inflammation if I stood/sat up too long but reclining in bed wasn't terrible at all (until I started losing my fucking mind from restlessness)

Just thinking about driving that long with wounds on my sides makes me squirm. Thankfully I’ve essentially told everyone to find other ride options for 2 weeks and my parents are gonna be a big help (they live right across the street from me). I’m being pretty aggressive about not letting people jeopardize my recovery.

Its nice to hear the pain wasnt as bad as expected. I’m expecting the worse, but this gives me some evidence to hope for the better. I don’t even know what pain killer they’re putting me on yet, but I know it’s one you gotta fill in person and get triplicates for sooooooo it’s definately not nothing. 

Despite having about 10-15 pillows on my bed already, I think I’m gonna pick up 2-3 more even if they’re just replacing a few old ones I needed to toss out years ago. That should help with being adequately reclined. 

One thing I’m sort of worried about is sleeping on my back. I’m mostly sure the pain and discomfort will persuade against my side sleeping habits, but I have been meaning to ask if that’s bothered anyone (with admittedly not many folks to ask). 

As for boredom... I’m gonna try and hash that shit out today. I got two weeks to fill and a mind that is almost never satisfied with a single activity (I usually need at least something audible, visual and ideally tactile to captivate me).

so I'm a massive side sleeper as well and I'm here to tell you DO not try to lay on your side until you're like reasonably healed, and take it really slow when you do try it for the first time. I tried too early and it felt like my side split apart again. I'm out here making the dingdong decisions so you don't have to. once I could lay on my side though I needed to keep a pillow under my top arm that would stop it from crossing in front of my body so it didn't go stretching anything. that pillow was also pretty helpful for keeping the silicone strips where they needed to be lmao

on the medication front, obviously your surgeon has a different process from mine but at least as a guiding thought, I was given a week's worth of an opioid and an anti-inflammatory and then a couple weeks of an anti-nausea. you bet I took all the anti-inflammatory but I only ended up using maybe a few days' worth of the opioid, since he told me only to take it when I needed it

one weird thing was that the inflammation seemed to try to follow gravity? so I would wake up to the very ends of my incisions aching and everything else feeling fine. I was concerned about it until my surgeon told me that's pretty normal. I was also briefly flipping out feeling like he didn't leave enough skin on my chest but, again, inflammation's dirty tricks hanging out with my old friend anxiety

I'm tangenting a tad there but I'm just thinking about things I kinda wish I'd heard about beforehand, just because you know, when you're in the moment and the body's in a felicate state and not feeling right it's easy to get really worried about things that seem obvious once someone actually says it. it's probably just inflammation being a bastard like 9 times out of 10 tbh

you can ask me anything else you're worried or curious about at any time, even the embarrassing stuff. I'm shameless when it comes to my experience possibly helping other people

tHIS IS SO HELPFUL THANKYOU. You're a litteral god amongst men. I am also usually an anxiety riddled mess, so its extremely comforting to know what I'll probably be freaking out about (and by extention, lessen my worries). I trust my body a fair bit. But I also know my body doesn't have a concept of or a set of directions for how to deal with surgical procedures and thus I cannot trust it in those regards.

At this point, I'm not exactly sure what all I'll be worried about. I think at this point I'm just curious and inexperienced with a couple of the things I'll be dealing with (for example: the silicon gel sheets). I'm sure I'll figure them out but its gonna be a fucking time, for sure.

I'm a little anxious now about the compression shirt theyre gonna have me wear to help "keep the skin tight." I was initially thinking it was gonna make the inflamation feel worse, but now I'm kind of on the fence (?) with a "I guess we'll see when we get there" attitude. I've been binding for a good few years and it can't be much different than that, can it? There's just wounds underneath it now. (But I will have to ask when they want me to start wearing that. A lot of this is a matter of timing, I think) I am, overall, not too worried about the scarring. At this point theyre a little bit like a badge of honor, but I'll do all I can with the scar reduction therapies they've offered to me knowing I'll likely care more about the prominence of my scars in the future (especially after the intense relief of having no tits fades to a reality).

I'm gonna go ahead and thank you again for being an awesome human being because its just. So comforting. To know that there's someone I can go and ask questions to who's been through this hell (especially someone who's not a healthcare professional). ;w; I'm probably gonna maybe, a little, live blog the fuck out of some of this out of boredom or frustration anyway, so expect to hear lots.

compression actually does help with inflammation! I don't really get the science and I'm not googling very well right now, something about limiting how much blood and other liquid can stay in the area at once, but the simple explanation is compression means less swelling means less pain. they'll probably have put you in it themselves right after surgery, over whatever they do for bandaging, so you don't have an opportunity to start swelling before you've even woken up

"keep the skin tight" sure does sound kind of horror movie-ish, but I'm pretty sure they just mean keeping the edges of your skin where they sew them so you don't heal with any weird edges or wider scars than necessary

but yeah! I wished I had a more detailed resource for mine so I'm happy to be that for anybody else as much as I can

going to a community meant for talking about game dev experiences and tips because I like hearing about code goofs and sweet process hacks and whatever, and just finding everyone advertising their completed games and saying not even one thing about being a dev 🙃

When I read your url, I read it like Star 'OH' Rice, and if that's wrong then I dont wanna be right. 

star0rice -

LOL. The zero, way back in the day, was just a place holder for the space I usually used (of which most websites nowandays don't allow) because I didn't quite like using an underscore. Using the zero is commonplace for me now and Star Oh Rice is infinitely better sounding than Star Zero Rice, hands down.

HEY dnd players that use roll20

if you're buying a pack of npc tokens for a game at $4.99, how many tokens do you expect to get for your money?

I initially set my goal to 20 and I have 19 done, but sales obviously isn't as simple as "I put x hours into this work, so charging $ nets me around 15/hr" and I honestly have no idea how many of one race a dm expects to need for an average game and feels is worth buying a pack off the marketplace


we finally played a dnd again and aaaaaaaaaaaa

we were reduced to two players for the last like very long time and now we had FOUR and it's so much more fun when there's more personalities to take a piece of the info gathering/story scooching, so we're not stuck in one place the entire session because someone (me) won't stop making jokes out of every little thing

and finally being able to play someone inclined to antagonize npcs without grinding the game to a halt 


honestly if you have to "develop a taste" for a kind of alcohol, just throw that boy in the trash and don't worry about it. grab something you already like instead. it's not worth it


the world of alcohol is weird. any time up to this point that I had a drink that claimed to be smooth or have a "smooth finish" it's really only been in the bare sense of liquids being able to flow and be swallowed, but it sure feels a tad sandpapery on the way down. I've spent some time thinking that "smooth" just isn't a quality alcohol is capable of taking, or it takes a certain kind of person (of which I'm clearly not) to be able to find a drink "smooth"

I wanted to try sake for a long time though because I only ever see anyone saying that it's on another level from other kinds of alcohol, and the wine store down the street had some smaller, cheaper bottles that make a good party taste test size. it's very strong and I'm not sure I was born with the taste for it but holy shit, sake is smooth

Odette Hall 2019

Drew up a Merfolk Alex cause why not


my last job I did for 2 years I was a cleaner, I went into buildings after hours and basically did a surface cleaning every night, wiping tables and bathrooms and vacuuming/mopping/sweeping. I really liked it! I enjoyed the strength I got from it and trying to do it as fast as possible and comparing my times, and LOTS of stimulating think time that got me one of my best stories I've ever

I had to leave it because, between the deceptively heavy physical work of cleaning and the strain of below 0 winters, I developed chronic back spasms that now come back if I do either too little or too much exercise, and that obliterate all of the flexibility in my back and legs every time they come back. I miss this job so bad! I loved it very much and found it stimulating when it was going good, but it very solidly falls into the "too much" category at this point
