Chrome Incognito, big glasses and a hat: Jeepers, there websites don't know who you are! It's like you're wearing a disguise!
Firefox Private, domino mask: Couldn't resist the temptation of this electronic carnival of decadent delights? Mmm... of course not...

Half my life ago, I started using Blue as my name in certain communities. I'm a compartmentalizer so I am careful about how I introduce myself, but lately the "non-binary people name themselves by throwing a dictionary in a blender" meme is making me feel 17 years worth of attacked and I'm thinking maybe I should go by Blue more?

I've said before that I'm reluctant to change my name just because of how Regina is gendered, but I decided I was Blue several years before I was out to myself.

Mountain Goats-posting 

The Mountain Goats are playing their first post-pandemic show in Chicago. After a heartfelt rendition of a song about the beauty of struggling through another day as a vulnerable, healing creature, there is a lull.

"Jazz No Children!" someone shouts, and I never hear the reaction because I grab them, cut open a portal to hell with a broken beer bottle, and drag both of us out of this plane of reality, hand in unlovable hand

Mountain Goats-posting 

I love seeing the artists whose work I love enjoying each other's company and having fun, but if "Jazz No Children" becomes a Thing, I swear to God
