Who decided to call it toast instead of reduced-moisture bread? Then we could graduate it

“I’d like a 2% bread please”
“Oh, my stomach can’t handle that. I’ll do an order of skim-bread, thanks”

I have many feelings and photos from an amazing #xoxofest day of #social events, but the most relevant and important to share with the fediverse is thus: Jean Darts

#Jarts #JeanDarts #Jorts #LawnDarts #Toys #DangerousToys

I felt a bit of leaving the opening party a bit early, but now Friday's social calendar is set and I’m going to get most of a full night’s sleep. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in just a few hours!

I may acknowledge that the “OS” here stands for “Oversized [books]”, but I have heard of strange rituals to keep critical systems running, so “Operating System Entertaining” didn’t seem so out of place when I first glanced.

Speaking of kind messages, I think adding "fortune | ponysay" to my .profile has improved my workday immensely.

Also, I freaking love the & community.

Back from trips and trawling through my photos for worthy uploads. I pre-apologize for the flood of posts to later tonight.

Lyrics about end of life (& rebirth?) 

And the earth looked at me and said "wasn't that fun?"
And I replied "I'm sorry if I hurt anyone"
And without even thinking cast me into space
But before she did that she wiped off my own face
She said better luck next time don't worry so much
Without ears I couldn't hear I could just feel the touch
As I fell asleep softly at the edge of a cave
But I should have gone deeper but I'm not so brave
