If you want me, I am now @miss_s_b :)
So after 9 months on Mastodon, I really like it here. I wrote about my experience and some advice for new users over on The Outline https://theoutline.com/post/2689/mastodon-makes-the-internet-feel-like-home-again
So I now have a dedicated sewing table and don't have to clear the dining table to do sewing! I just made @matgb's mum her Christmas present.
So if anybody needs alterations doing, give me a nudge. I can take up, take in, let out, reshape less-curvy clothes to suit curvy people, etc.
Actual garment making reserved for fambly &/or people who are willing to pay LOTS of money, though.
Just done a YouGov survey. I feel there was a missed opportunity in one of the questions:
"Rochdale council has just dropped a ban on swearing in the town centre as unenforceable. Do you think trying to ban swearing in public is
- a good idea
- a bad idea
- don't know"
Surely one of the options should have been "fuck off"?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH FUCK YOU JOHN CURTICE
I know it should be a cause for celebration when the political establishment catches up with and promotes what you've been saying for a decade, but honestly, it is so fucking frustrating being a Cassandra. This is the life of a lib dem, OfC...
illness Show more
I spent all night throwing up, for no apparent reason.
Have stopped throwing up (but still feel queasy) now, and I suspect the reason I am no longer throwing up is that there is nothing TO throw up.
Eurgh. I planned to do a load of stuff in the kitchen today...
TFW partner wants to go shopping and you just want to lurk under the duvet feeling grumpy #YayDepression
We had quite a long walk today, me and the doggies.
I'm now on the sofa, covered in snoring happy beasties.
This is lovely, but also prevents moving.
Still, somebody left the telly on Quest, and I'm actually finding How Sports Are Made quite interesting - it's little 10 minute documentaries on how they make sporting equipment.
So far I've watched:
- racing wheelchairs
- showjumping saddles
- curling stones
And am currently watching masts for racing yachts.
Net neutrality Show more
Fuck the FCC and every corporation that bribed them to repeal net neutrality today. I'd suggest a boycott but most of us don't even have the option of using a less scummy ISP.
I'm pissed as someone who knows an open internet is vital. I'm pissed as a taxpayer whose money will go to fighting the inevitable lawsuits that overturn this decision. I'm pissed that we're in a country where the concept of freedom seems to apply more to old corporations than to actual people.
