Well, an #introduction since they seem to be going around.
I'm Qwerty, and yes there are people who call me that in meatspace. I like to say I collect (creative) hobbies but honestly I haven't been able to stick to one yet for long enough to be competent. I work in software and run on music; I #cook and #bake and read and occasionally fumble in the direction of #drawing or #gamedev, and I drink almost exclusively tea.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
