Sometimes I get very tired of being barraged with everyone's opinions on the internet.

Update: I still have not found this coffee cup. It's going on two days in the wild.

Shipping books from the GregPakShop.com today -- great time to get ABC DISGUSTING - purchase price goes to PR hurricane relief!

Hopefully I discover it before the smell leads me to it.

I know I left a coffee cup half full of coffee somewhere around the house yesterday but I cannot find it for the life of me.

MORNING ALL. I'm calling tree care experts this morning because a storm brought down one of our trees.

Totally forgot I preordered Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch. Apparently that released today.

My mug today is in some ways nerdier than my usual Star Wars mugs

Hey Mastodonians, I am doing a writing advice thread over on Twitter. twitter.com/skrishna/status/93

Pumpkin Joe Joe's from Trader Joe's might be my favorite pumpkin flavored thing ever

The discovery of a new exoplanet near Earth in the "habitable zone" has me contemplating my packing list if I were to leave the planet.

If you love comics and the people who make them, giving to the Hero Initiative is seriously one of the best things you can do. Check it this article about how they helped Taki Soma and Mike Oeming: heroinitiative.org/taki-soma-a

Relatedly, if you love Kate Beaton's comics, especially the ones about her sisters and family, please consider giving to her sister's cancer care fundraiser: youcaring.com/beckybeaton-1008

I cannot express in words how happy it makes me that I don't have to travel for Thanksgiving OR Christmas.

My tea situation is apparently more dire than I realized. Thinking a trip to the Indian grocery store may be in the cards for today.

Morning, tooters!

(Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

Here's a picture I just put together from 3 images taken on sol (Mars day) 782, early in the morning, before sunrise. mastodon.social/media/q6ICpEC6

Folks who're annoyed about the inability to move to another instance without being able to take your followers with you:

"Account migration" has been a feature request on the Github issue list for quite a long time. github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

It is a BIG job, but it is on the list and the devs are aware of it. It could take a long time.

Clicking through to the issue on Github and clicking "thumbs-up" and leaving a comment about your suboptimal new-user experience is really helpful.

I can clean or I can play on Mastodon. The choice is pretty easy.
