Did I mention I build and fly rockets? This is Super Bonbon, my L1 high power rocketry cert flight, launching in the Mojave Desert in the summer of 2021.

, you say?

Hi. I'm Emma, a nonbinary trans woman who builds rockets, cooks, looks after cats, and builds developer tools and infrastructure.

I have a blog at emmas.site/.

I live in Oakland and pay Shuumi to the Ohlone people whose land this is -- sogoreate-landtrust.org/shuumi.

Good news. She's okay (the trip to the vet got her so spooked she was having trouble breathing so they gave her a sedative.)

But she's coming home and will get lots of snugs and petting.

One of my cats, Lizzie Bennett Tribble, is at the emergency vet.

Please send good vibes her way and hug your kitties, buns, ratties, puppers, and so on.

I was iterating on the prompt "/imagine a woman in a teal salwar kameez" on Midjourney and landed on this.

If someone has a blatantly wrong idea about something, you can try to correct them in a few sentences and be dismissed as a mere snarker, or you can write an essay detailing all the complexities concerning the subject and get told “lol why are you so obsessed with this you weirdo”.

My friend Guillaume just released a pack of 20 fantastic fonts that you can buy for only $5 (or more).
And all the proceeds go to a great scholarship helping women of color in the type design field.
Go!

ZOMG! The Fediverse. It's like the Metaverse, only with less Metaverse and more queerness.
