a beginner's guide to mastodon
-yes, what you knew as tweets are toots. it is funny, but we all already know. we still appreciate it but we know
-think of instances (like mastodon social) as being like a house. as a household you can interact with each other, and if someone's breaking the rules, they get thrown out
it occurs to me i haven't done a new #introduction yet
-prog metal / math rock / pop punk / lo-fi hip hop / some vapor
-fuckin' video games and shit
-pizza, mexican food, and wings
-having small parties with friends
-cool comics and books
-staying busy and occupied
I don't like
-being at parties with tons of people
-big ol' meanies
wait does slack really not have night mode?????????????
alright done with pointing at my whiteboard
back to other things - i'm excited about the world of warcraft expansion tonight

for what it's worth, it's also worthwhile to think about placing things like food and alcohol in a CW - if there are users who may have experienced problems or disorders with these things, they may not want to see your food photo, no matter how delicious

btw, for people new to Mastodon, because it bears repeating - CW = content warning. To use it, click "CW" under a post you're making, and enter a label for the post.
common CWs/content warnings are for things like US politics, death, mental health (or mh), which is noted by positive (+) or negative (-), anything that people may not want to necessarily see as they're scrolling by. let people choose what to interact with, because you don't want certain content either.
oh man, my wedding is two months from today
not sure how it'd work with redundant CW tags though. that would probably be more of the challenge
i wonder if, instead of hard filtering toots based on a keyword, you could have the toot auto-CW itself, with the keyword as the CW text
*stretches out and lays back in chair, relaxing*
oh and i'm going to have a phone interview for a potential new job today - neat. okay monday, i'm picking up what you're putting down
i woke up during a REM cycle today but i also finally managed to complete a defense grid level that was giving me trouble so maybe everything will be okay
my poor dog
i fed him this morning with his red food scoop like i always do but he wasn't paying attention
continues to not notice food is in the bowl - in i walk with my red coffee mug
dog thinks i'm just drinking his food at this point
i don't know why i put a pratchett book on my reading list this year
*wipes hand all the way down face, pulling down at the end*
i'm 20 pages in and just, *sigh*
i think i don't love the idea of instances based on hobbies or passions because then it feels like a contest or something. or people treat it that way.
that's why like a year ago i made a bunch of accounts and only use this one.
still wondering if there's another instance i'd like to join but my level of caring at this point is so low lol
sundays are for... playing video games about cooking apparently
played some cool-ass overcooked again tonight too. that game is good. almost done with it.
cook serve delicious is a really good way to get my brain wires all tangled up while making delicious-looking virtual food
Ho boy new people!!! I'll refresh my #introduction
