The average lifespan of a trans woman is 28. 1 in 8 trans women of color will be murdered, or 1 in 12 overall. 41% of trans people have attempted suicide. 50% of trans people have been raped or assaulted by a romantic partner. We have to change this. 
Training day at work. So much powerful information. Heavy too.

I met the unipiper yesterday! He was at my friend Marie's launch of her book, Pieces of Portland... because he's featured in the book. He seems a lovely fellow. No flames though (yes, he often has flames coming out of his bagpipe pipes) and a lighter outfit because of the heatwave. More about the awesome book here: http://www.piecesofportland.com/

Surprise surprise, I use google. I have a crap ton of pictures backed up. My phone auto-syncs when I take pictures, too.

It was raining and sunny at the same time a moment ago. When I was a kid we called this monkeys' wedding day. Did any of you have any other interesting names for sunny rain?

Seems PHP sites dominate the web being used to create more than 4 of every 5 websites.

What a lovely place. I was lucky to find Bronze Antler at a bad time. The great weather I'd hoped for and that had been in the forecast turned into endless rain and even some early fall snow. The idea of camping in that mess was unappealing so I stopped there. Heather was a warm and friendly host and the place was comfortable, cosy and welcoming, the perfect place to hunker down for a couple of days until the worst of the weather passed. It was also in very good shape, being very well cared for something not true of all the B&Bs I've stayed at. Their cleaner is astonishing as I normally have to contend with dust issues because of allergies, but not this time. The place was immaculate. The bathroom had everything you could hope for and a few things you'd never have expected. The shower was awesome. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like a baby. The furniture, art and fixings also all added to the experience. I'm not sure I've ever stayed at a B&B with more nice touches. If they have forgotten anything I have no idea what it could be. They have some nice touches aimed at romantic couples so if you're looking for a romantic place to stay in a beautiful part of the world where you will be very, very well taken care of, then this is the place. It's also a great place for those doing work, with good wifi, plenty of power ports, a desk and so on, as well as public spaces where one can comfortably work. And if you just want somewhere to rest your weary soul, this is the place. I plan to return.
