This post and the next one or two are being posted out of order to address what is happening right now in the world.

Hey, so in the big list of random shit going through my head right now, I’m really thinking of going ahead and reviving the GGR podcast over on Himalaya.

So this is sort of related to posts #398, #470, and #471. Respectively they are posts about the fact that in my head, growing up just means that you can buy all the shit you wanted as a kid, the geeky gardening post, and the post about poverty in fandom. Stay with me. So, because… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #472 – Geek Hoarding
