Pinned toot

Hi Mastodon, I killed my Twitter account a few weeks ago, and 15 minutes ago I pulled the plug on Facebook.

I wanna be your friend! We could talk about or or or maybe ? Maybe we could play frisbee and get a water-ice later?

How do I get into this scene?

Suddenly I want a cheesecake and I don't have one and now I'm super grumpy about it.

Listen. In this house we do not kink shame. If you want to make your guacamole with red chile, then brother I have only one thing to say to you: tortilla chips around the bottom shelf.

But the cilantro isn't up for discussion.

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

So last night's sleeping potion (Cuz to be honest I had no delusions of sleeping normally last night) was an ounce of Tequila, an eyedropper of Passionflower tincture, and an eyedropper of Dwarf Lousewort tincture. I made both tinctures from locally-harvested herbs, but these things can be found at the local Apothecary, or Botanica if you live in a latino neighborhood.

Imagine that, I've got another Talking Heads song stuck in my brainmeats.


Lets play a game called "How many terminals does Dave have left open from 2020?"

A. 5

From "Command and Control" by Eric Schlosser, England's WW3 plans specified an underground airplane factory converted into a fallout shelter for 8000 people and included miles of roads, a suite for the PM and their staff, a BBC studio, a vault for the Bank of England's gold reserves, and most importantly a pub called the Rose & Crown.

Oh good someone in my neighborhood is firing a SMG. That's comforting.

NYE spread. Shrimp, herring, brie, salami, plenty of pickles, and beer.

It's extremely telling of my current mental state and need for social contact that I'm tempted to reach out to people on *FSCKING LINKEDIN*.

Many IT teams could learn a thing or two from watching #Babylon5. I.e. #OpSec with Mr. Garibaldi:

- "I'm not authorized for that information"
- "But you're the head of security"
- "What kind of head of security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I know what I know because I have to know it, and if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me or let anyone else tell me."

Network failure, a Haiku:

It’s not DNS
There's no way it’s DNS
It was DNS
