Twitter is down, and this instance says I'm not following anyone (though I am). It's the end times!

Due to some reasons, I've been eating a lot of vegan food recently, and I have some observations. First, you can eat really well as a vegan. Second, the only problems with being vegan are social, not technical. (People think it's a bit odd, and animal products are everywhere.) Third, I have an increasingly uncomfortable feeling that they're probably right: that we cause harm unnecessarily by using animals. (I'm not a vegan though. But it's no longer unthinkable.)

Just been described as "an inspiration" at napping. I'll claim that accolade with pride.

Buying an always-on hot water dispenser is easily the second-best thing I've done in the past few weeks. mastodon.social/media/mb8Hy3EU

Beaucoup de francophones ici. 日本語はまだ見てない。いらっしゃるかな。

@paulc @Thayer @jabley Definitely just squatting, except for meta-chats about not using it.
