Time for another round of #introductions
Hi! My name's Elisha and I'm still experimenting to see where I belong in the fediverse. I was previously @firstname.lastname@example.org but I didn't want to spam people with non-food related photos, so here I am, on maybe a more apt instance.
And yes, I'm from the Bay Area. Pier 7 is my favorite pier in Embarcadero.
Nice to meet you! :)
I am in need of ideas! We were thinking of sending stuff to our co-workers, but besides like your basic care package and a food box delivery thing like Hello Fresh or Good Eggs, what other fun thing can we send or provide? What have you gotten in the mail? :)

I vividly remember this one guy who was waiting at the door the minute we opened on the day we got the book.
Ngghhhh I looked at nextdoor and there's a digital piano going for $300 and I'm losing my mind here.
"Same-Sex Couples Are More Likely to Adopt or Foster Children"
New US census report (based on the ACS 2019 data) shows that same-sex couples are more likely to foster children. I am in a same-sex marriage and I don't usually talk about this next part publicly AT ALL but I have a foster kid and I highly recommend it for queer families, especially since a high proportion of foster kids are queer themselves.
Also it gives me this "I'm younger but this is what I think older people do" vibes - been there, done that.
Everyday dribble about random things happening in (my) life - writing, books, art, tech, travel, and brown sugar boba. If you enjoy weirdly angled photos, you've come to the right place!
