: I use this site wrong. I mostly use Twidere on Android, which hides CW pretty deep, so I sometimes forget. I generally read everything in my feed, in order, but am often up-to three days behind. I may inexplicably boost or reply to something you've forgotten about, and I'm sorry.

As an , I live in the Bronx, and I manage some programmers in the financial data space. I'm married to a YA librarian with NY Public Libraries. I read a lot of books, some of them are not out yet. I have wide interests and lots of hobbies. If I'm following you, I probably noticed you talk about something I thought was interesting.

I LOVE it if you do that... over there. But, please go where the wind won't carry that smell back to me.

My parents did that, it's nostalgic like cookies for the half second before I realize what I'm smelling. Then the after-smell of lightly roasted skunk confirms it.

But, but, I won't shame you for doing it... Except to my neighbor: "I can't escape your cheap-ass, skunk-weed stench."

That's what I yell out my window. If you heard me, I'm serious, smoke better shit.

Me: Birdsite vs Here 

I am there and here because people I want to follow are in both places. I was here before Wil Wheaton was persuaded off of the platform. I've been there since 2008.

I use the same client for both, I see both timelines co-mingled in post-date order.

Partly, I'm here because I believe in the overall mission of decentralized microblog services. Mostly, I'm here because I have friends that are much more comfortable here, where code of conduct is taken seriously.

I'm not going to preach about NFTs, but watch this (admittedly US-centric) video about legal issues around them both for consumers & creators.

It's long (46m) but good for anyone who is thinking about getting on NFT 🚂.

My take on NFTs. New video up on Nebula and YouTube (Nebula has an exclusive companion video all about NFTs for artists and creators!)

Bronx, NY. Image... Telephone pole with many, many rusted staples sticking out of it.

Remembering the time I was in India to attend a wedding and my friend's family decided to 'dress the foreigners up in traditional costumes', and how ... because of cultural appropriation backlash fears, I never shared photos or wore those clothes again, once home. Seems a waste.

Watching a review of the VW ID Buzz van, and I think, I want to drive a vehicle of that shape. First thing reviewer (DeMuro) mentions ... US market will get a longer version.

I have no access to electric parking, so I cannot get an e-car anyway, but I'm still sad.

I read digital mass market comics...

Very frustrated that the new Amazon comic app has completely lost my read/unread, marking everything as unread. I don't remember which books I really haven't read, but there were a handful.

I just can't deal for now. Canceling subs.

I'm wondering how long I can go on Wordle without having to reload the page.

I just got my computer fully operational, I can play computer games again.

I'm going to have a surgery soon, so I've only got a few weeks to enjoy it before I'll be bedridden for a while.

Copying this with zero attribution under ancient internet made-up fair use doctrine:

If you use someone's NFT art just make sure to put "copyright not intended" and you're covered under a doctrine of "internet copyright law that people made up" that is more ancient than the NFT and therefore more valid.

Pfizer 💉 * 3.

Tired today. Arm is sore. Otherwise happy to still be on this side of the ground.

Why is it a to-do list when there's rarely only two things on it

Just Zoom thing... Moving the pointer towards "leave" then having to divert back up to "the meeting has ended"


No, I didn't block you because I disagree with your point of view, I blocked you because it mentions that person that should have already gone to the bin of obscurity.

Liebe Grüße Teoma 💙

🤔 If I can hitchhike through the world, then it should be possible to boost through the Fediverse. Please boost me! I will try to write about this trip. Thank you.👍

Kind regards Teoma 💙
