Guide to my alt accounts Show more
This account is the general purpose tooter.
@flyingtoaster - lewd. Follow requests accepted or rejected based on weirder feelings than just how much I like you.
@mcmoots - someday maybe I'll separate out the more technical nerd stuff & write posts that need LaTeX. Hasn't happened yet though.
@mcmoots - backup alt, please follow + store at least 3 gallons of water per person per day as part of your disaster preparedness plan.
My home instance has been brought back to life, I will be switching my main tooting to @mcmoots
Plz follow kthx
I hope some trans man somewhere has used this clip to come out on his 37th birthday, instead of just posting the short version.
Friendos, I need to add some 10-20 minute podcasts to my life. I use podcasts for timing chores, so episode length is important.
Current subscriptions: BirdNote, 99% Invisible, Welcome to Night Vale, the Allusionist, Pounded in the Butt by my Own Podcast. Not too interested in timely news stuff, because then it feels bad when I fall behind. Most topics fair game. What are your favorites?

Update: I bought some dates and immediately ate the whole bag.
dietary restriction Show more
I decided my personal liturgical calendar needs an arbitrary restriction / fasting holiday. So it's the week between earth day and my birthday and this year I'm giving up refined sugar.
I've gotten, uh, really used to a bit of sweet before bed. This glass of orange juice in sparkling water with chocolate bitters feels fancy but is not really doing it for me. Maybe I'll go buy some coconut date bites for the rest of the week.
work; baiting my pride Show more
A colleague just sent me an email: "I will work with X on [project I am desperately trying to transfer to X] because it doesn't seem like you're going to be able to do Y feature".
I spent like 15 minutes working on it like "hahaha I'll show you, I can do Y super easy!" and... why. Why do I fall for that.
The better answer is "yep, I don't have time. I'll publish with the current approximation of Y and you can work with X on updates" and then it's NOT MINE ANYMORE.
climate change, health care, pol? Show more
Remember how pharmaceutical production facilities in Puerto Rico got knocked out by the hurricane & there's a sterile saline shortage? Now there's a product recall.
We were already using our saline shortage protocol. Now there's a room full of doctors down the hall trying to decide when potentially contaminated saline is safer than no saline (and, y'know, inventorying lot numbers and stuff).
We are a rich first-world hospital.

Look kids when I was your age they played Smash Mouth on the radio *unironically*.
That was the summer I worked at a plastic factory, I was exposed to a lot of radio. Whenever I see someone riff on the lyrics it gets stuck in my head. I'd ask for content warnings but uh if they're intelligible they would also get it stuck in my head, there's really not much you can do. I just hate that this is a meme now.
I flung open the curtains and the cat gave me such a pitiful "what why are you disturbing me" look! (true cat expression not shown, she got over it by the time I grabbed my phone for a picture)
literal 💩 Show more
I just realized that the reason my new pooping bathroom is so nice and quiet is that one of the units on that floor is being remodeled. I'm not sure how long that's supposed to take, but when it's done the area is likely to be too busy for comfortable poops 😭💩
Hi! I’m Meli, formerly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sadly a.w.e has been hacked and I miss mastodon too much to go without, so I decided to sign up here! Worst comes to worst, it becomes a backup/2ndary account.
I am a #jewish #queer #leftist #nonbinary #trans (approximately) #chronicallyill #disabled weirdo. I like #knitting #spinningyarn and other fiber arts, I post selfies and cat pics, and i believe internet friendships make the world go round.
