Once more for the people in the back:

Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.

I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.

Anybody here keep meaning to reread ? Or to read it for the first time and see what all the fuss is about?

@squeedoodle and I are doing a reread starting December 1. Plan is 1 week each for Acts 1, 2, and 3, and then the Midnight Crew intermission for the end of December. (I have ideas of how long it will take to read later acts, but want to see what y'all think.) Discussion at .

Let us know if you're interested! ♈ ♉ ♊ ♋ ♌ ♍ ♎ ♏ ♐ ♑ ♒ ♓

a philosophy of life 

Pinned toot

is the idea that, in this screwed-up world, showing kindness and empathy is a radical act of rebellion.

You don't just give to charity and respect people's pronouns because it's the right thing to do; you do it because fuck the patriarchy.

this is your regular reminder to cw your fucking politics

Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms. - Angela Carter

I saw this on my walk today. The phrases on the fence say:
Take care of one another
One day at a time . . .
You are loved
It's ok to cry
this too shall pass
Not One Not Two Together
We all have each other.

holiday, covid related 

Jesus christ, I accidentally deleted a huge #zotero collection just now, and barely managed to save it. If it ever happens to you, DO NOT CLOSE Zotero before you copy the last back-up file (so it isn't overridden). God bless the developers (although 'undo' option would be nicer)

Woof, its a bad day for so many people today. I wish I could help you all.

Remember that you are good and valuable and have taught me things, and are worth more then your job or how you do your chores

COVID-19, plasma therapies, requst 

Found a page about homemade face masks that looked very legit but had typos and didn't cite sources. It said masks should be made from woven cotton and you can microwave a homemade mask to decontaminate it.

I tried it on my favourite mask, and 🔥🔥🔥, so.

Don't do that. :D

Malina and the Border Banners, Chapter 8 (A Story for B)

She opened one more door to find one more, albeit short, hallway; Malina very nearly screamed.  Her feet WERE screaming.

Malina's story continues!

The bird who sowed the wind 🐦
The three little birds:

- wtf is this
- fly you fools!!
The fourth little bird:
- aaaaaaaaaaaaa
