Thank you SO MUCH everyone who bought me a birthday drink via buymeacoffee - it was a genuinely incredible and overwhelming amount of generosity, and I feel very lucky to have so many friends.  Sometimes living and working with people in a bunch of different places around the world can feel like you're out of reach of the kinds of support networks people weave when they don't move so much, but then the net tightened to catch me and I can see it spans actual goddam continents.  I will be posting PICSSSSSSS as soon as I have it, as my pal EJ pointed out I am now your sponsored rider! Y'all donated literally 50% of the cost of the bike! I will carry you all with me as I ride into the wilderness.  Thank you xx
