I've been around Mastodon for the eternity of the last seven months or so. πŸ˜‰ But why not do another post anyway?

I'm a designer.
I also like , , and many kinds of -related things. (Check out !)

I like .

I'm prone to talking about . :teapot:

Finally, I'm a trained reference at large (not currently working as one), and have a question-answering reflex.

Be better.

Flying less, eating less meat, reusing more stuff, throwing away less stuff is better than not doing those things, and it is better to be better for a year than perfect for a week.

Shadow has some white patches in amongst the black. I’m interested that they are not only a different color, but a different length.

hey all. With how often scams happen, especially to the older population, please be aware of the signs and learn how to protect yourself.

This is one example.

The other is when people call about taxes you owe, when you DON'T owe them. Or trying to call your about student loans from the government department. NEVER believe this. ALWAYS call the main entity. DON'T use the phone # THEY give you, find it online or in the phone book.

Hello, shop, and the worlds where we wander!

It's good to see you today.

The weather is gloriously cool for just one day, and I hope to use this opportunity to get things done.

I have a treasure box full of my handspun yarns, but I don't have enough money rn. So I will let some of them go, if you want to buy them.

They are between 20 and 35 Euros a skein + shipping. We can talk about price. DM me if you're interested :)

#Tessa has been released, and expects to be picked up by their parents shortly - but there's still a lot of work to do.

There's a new fundraiser page specifically for dealing with this: gofundme.com/support-victim-of

Hopefully tomorrow (6/9) I'll be able to coordinate with T properly and get a better understanding of what happens next.

Pretty sure there's going to be a lawsuit against the police.

(Next morning: heck, I didn't post this? <facepalm> Well, here it is.)

Fun fact: In Mad Max, Fury Road, when Immortan Joe's War Boys launch themselves into battle and spray their teeth with "chrome", it's *actually* Wilton's edible Colour Mist spray glitter. For the record, it smells like cheap vodka. If all goes well, it'll make my chocolates all shiny and chrome.

Thanks mastodon, seriously. I’m assisting a student who wants their record changed to reflect their chosen gender and the everyday way this is practised here has taught me how to use the language needed to get this done.

I’m better at my job because I’ve been included here.

Be careful! Most of the iceberg lettuce lies beneath the surface of the salad!

"I wish you had legs," he said.
"Why?" asked the mermaid.
"So we could, uh, dance."
"But I do dance, every day!"
"No, I mean, on land."
"And lose a whole dimension of movement?"
"And, you know, with me."
"Oh!" she pulled him into the water. "Let's dance!"

PSA: if a user habitually boosts stuff you don't want to see, you can turn off boosts just for them without unfollowing them

view their profile in the regular masto UI and you'll see a "Hide boosts from X" in the hamburger menu

this can make the whole experience a lot less annoying, but it's not well-known!

@phildini none of my IRL friends are on here (yet?) but I'll happily anyone who shares interests in tabletop gaming, social justice, chemistry, and pocasting!
