Me: “Hey, Google. What’s your favorite number?”

Google Home: “I really like the number 2, like when you and I hang out . . . 2gether.”

Me: *confused blushing*

After a long and tiresome week, I made it out to Olive Garden last night for a belated birthday dinner with my grandparents. I got carded for ordering wine, but I also got cute gifts and sweet memories and free miniature tiramisu. mastodon.social/media/lzpqvYfN mastodon.social/media/dH_eldvl

Real talk: I’ve been watching GBBO on repeat since March, but Netflix did not send me an email about the new season. I found out about it when I visited my mom, who was three episodes in already.

I feel BETRAYED by the ALGORITHM.

Please don't demand content warnings from strangers. Content warnings are a sort of social contract between an author and their followers; if you are not happy with how someone chooses to use them, do not follow that person or outright mute them, or mute words.

One of the most alienating experiences on Mastodon I've observed is when someone posts about something they're passionate about or is part of their identity and the first response is "please cw that" from a complete stranger.

Thanks

Gosh dang it. I already miss Chicago so much that it hurts, and now they have baby hedgehogs at the LP Zoo. 🦔💕 lpzoo.org/blog/spine-and-dandy

Leftover pasta + pear cider from World Market + finally practicing this two-page nightmare section of an upcoming piano/organ duet. Wild Monday night here at the Skirts residence, y’all.

Thanks to too many childhood viewings of the old BBC Chronicles of Narnia movies, I tried some Turkish delight candy tonight.

I was not delighted. ☹️

Today involved way too much driving (140 miles round-trip) just for a routine dentist appointment because insurance plans are dumb.

But coming home to enjoy a good book on the porch and some leftover roses from weekend guests: not at all dumb.

Tried out the “App Limits” feature in iOS 12 (public beta) today, and oh my gosh, I hit one hour of social media time shortly after breakfast—even as I was trying to use those apps sparingly. 🤦🏻‍♀️

@Sylvhem @rachelskirts In case you haven't seen this feature yet: some folks choose to filter out hits from that domain, which you can do from the menu on any switter.at profile

Tried to follow posts that are tagged with “Chattanooga” or “Tennessee,” and 99% of the results are from escort/adult bot accounts. What the heck? Is this an issue with all location-based hashtags/searches? :yikes:

Do any iOS mastodon clients save your timeline position?

Spent the weekend walking through the woods, eating an obscene amount of cheesecake, sitting on the dock at my favorite lake, and staying up way too late with my darling cousin and her boyfriend. More of that, please.

The response to this has been so lovely and so welcoming, just in the last few hours. I’m smitten, y’all. 💕

This site feels OVERWHELMINGLY populated by men. Ladies, where you at?

Important finishing touch in the powder room.

Not ready to abandon my legion of Twitter accounts entirely, but I do already have two Mastodon accounts! (IT WAS AN ACCIDENT.) Great start, great start.
