Hello Wandering Shoppers!

@Johannab has come forward and is being considered to take up the mantle as one of the Shop's Community Admins.

Do you have thoughts on this? Please DM (and only DM) @phildini AND @Annalee on Discord or Mastodon (preferably Discord) if so. Please don't post those thoughts publicly, as we want folks' unbiased opinions.

We'll have an update in roughly a week, and we are hoping to build a community admin team to share the load, so join the conversation on Discord!

@t_jea that’s going to be pretty light on the cocoa, could you pull together some sort of fudge icing for them?

@KelsonV I got carded for ginger beer in my 30s, which is extra funny because I almost never got carded for actual beer in my 20s.

Sweet biscuit! Today's Twist was a great puzzle!

I got it in 01:06:58.

Statements Towards the Establishment of a Proof-of-Rest Protocol.

Amazing piece. 🌙 💜 👇

"Work is said to have some discrete value that can be exchanged. But we don't need any more work, especially not in the name of creating & maintaining scarcity. What has truly become scarce & precious in this world is rest." by Em Reed.

@tewha yeah Logitech options is a goofy electron app, it’s only redeeming feature is letting me get my mouse wheel to mostly scroll the right direction on Windows.

We are seeing a censorship wave from the right the likes we have never seen. Shredding common core math books, “Don’t Say Gay”, Maus book banning, burning the muṣḥaf, denouncing reality as “fake news”. Do we hear one peep about that? Nope. But try to block direct harassment and it’s a deadly sin apparently.

@jolantruchng it’s been a while but I believe accepting or rejecting the changes the turn off track changes.

Most of the time I’m perfectly content to be transitioning in my 30s, but lately I’ve been feeling some sharp pangs from missing out on being a teen/20-something guy.

It’s like I skipped past so much right to Dad Years and honestly sometimes it stings.

@shardsofblue started at 36, I can definitely mourn the experiences I never had, but I don’t think I’d be happier if I had started sooner. My teens and 20s were messy, my 30s are where I’ve come into my own with my health, my family, my career, and embracing who I am. The one thing that does sting is knowing that if I was that trans girl now, I’d have a way better resources to figure it out sooner as a bunch of assholes are working ramp up fear and attack us.

Been playing another word game from Zach Gage, beat today’s classic in 30:35. It’s so good.

Hey yall! 💞 I'm $800 shy of my top surgery goal. I'm still dealing with medical bills and would appreciate your aid!

I'm latinx, trans masc and not making enough to deal with the stress of finances. I'm also supporting my underemployed trans gf. Every donation is appreciated and very rad :ablobcatrave:

> the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

oh you sweet summer child
