another trick to having a good time on mastodon imo: start tooting about anything other than mastodon
[fully recognizing the irony of the above toot, which is, of course, about mastodon. but I think by and large as a fediverse citizen I have achieved a good about-mastodon-to-anything-else ratio]
@aparrish how.... meta?
@aparrish additionally this wasn't meant to be jabbing, and re-reading it i could see how it comes off that way so, you know, we're cool still. also hi!
@aparrish That was perfect. I drafted a toot and deleted it because it was too mean. I couldn't think of a nice way to say 'Don't join and immediately criticize Masto unless you want to be muted by everyone.'
@aparrish jeff atwood said "meta is murder" and he's still right about that
@aparrish I agree. Likewise people ought to stop constantly mentioning 'finally left Twitter' or 'Bye bye Facebook'. I realize they try to 'get away from it all' but then why even still focus attention on those sites if you finally left those? Indirectly that is also tooting about Mastodon, which comes back to your point, heh. ;)
@aparrish cool let’s talk about um *looks around* goddamnit uhhhh
this lamp. This lamp is pretty neat
@ilovecomputers Hey. I'm intrigued. What kind of lamp is it?
@trinsec a big and overpriced one lol
@ilovecomputers That... is a lamp?! 😮
@trinsec lol yeah
I took the photo years ago tho
@ilovecomputers Very artsy. Is it practical though?
I doubt it was lol
