one of them is: routine grocery shopping for folks who don’t have a car very, very often sucks real bad
i live in a bigish city with bad and worsening public transit, and for the past couple of years i’ve had partners with cars: the difference in my stress and exhaustion levels around grocery shopping pre-being-able-to-shop-with-a-car-owning-person-on-a-regular-basis-without-particularly-asking and post are enormous
and even pre-boyfriends-with-cars, i had access to a bus and train system that sucked but that was, well, existent; i’m sure it’s a lot worse for folks living with even more sparse or no public transit
eta: i feel like the “without-particularly-asking” part of my pre-post delineation is more important than i see talked about much; mutual aide is great but it can be really straining for both parties when a person has to regularly request rides to the grocery store (or laundromat, courthouse, etc) from friends and family, especially of the ride-needing person doesn’t have a whole lot of time or resources to immediately ‘give back’ to the ride-giving parties
having a boyfriend who assumes that we’ll shop together because we cook together on a daily basis has been really different from having to be, on some level, reliant on the kindness of friends who aren’t domestically tied to me and won’t be benefiting in an immediate way from taking me shopping

things i will miss about atlanta #1: udipi cafe

transartorialism:

Sprint PictureMail

what makes udipi better than all the other indian restaurants?  well, they make the best dosai, and whenever a child orders one the folks in the kitchen make them wonderfully large and impressive.  almost every time we go here, there is a kid with eyes as big as saucers with a bowling ball sized cone of crispy deliciousness in front of them.

also, the servers really like me and alejo for some reason and always suggest things for us to eat.

also plz note that those christmas lights had actual goddamn icicles hanging from them

i have never seen this before in real life

georgia winter what are you doing

[Picture: Background: 8 piece pie style color split with red and teal alternating. Foreground: White, young, bespeckled, gender-normative-looking dude wearing a sweat shirt over a button down and short black hair. Has a smug, arrogant facial expression and crossed arms. Top text: “Disagree with me?” Bottom text: “You’re probably COINTELPRO.”]
made this and submitted it to the main privilege denying dude tumblr; hasn’t shown up yet which i guess means it’s either queued or the folks who moderate pdd aren’t part of the activist/anarchist/punk crowd where just disagreeing with a white dude can get you accused of being a divisive government infiltrator
this’d  probably be better with the anarchybro pdd i’ve seen around, but i  couldn’t find that template and there’re lots of obnoxious radicalbros  who’re plenty clean-cut, anyway
gonna post this to my facebook eventually but i think i’ll wait until t——— gets back from iran because her dial-up there is too slow to fb and she will, i think, appreciate it more than anyone
