If you don't believe in yourself, I'll believe in you until you will too.

reminder (for myself too):
It's ok to question,
it's ok to be unsure,
it's ok to be confused,
it's ok to change you mind,
it's ok to be vulnerable,
it's also ok to be completely sure about yourself with nothing to question.

If you're having dark day, I hope there's somebody for you to reach out for. If not, reach out for me. I can't do much, but we can be confused together.

I'm Tuula or Tuukka, depending on the day, and like tinkering with code and little toy soldiers (mostly 15mm ancients). I try to pick up reading again, preferably something that isn't code related. Currently that something seems to be .

I'm somewhat confused who or what I am, so you can expect steady stream of toots about that if you decide to follow me.

And I'll try to be generally friendly and safe person to be around.

Have you heard of Mudita?

Muditā (Pāli and Sanskrit: मुदिता) means joy; especially sympathetic or vicarious joy. The pleasure that comes from delighting in other people's well-being.

Today I was wondering about wide shoulders (and I don't even have that wide ones) and said to myself "You were volunteer firefighter. Wide shoulders are good for hauling all that stuff around." They were good back then, they can be good now.

"Oh, but she's just the sweetest thing," the vampire sighed dramatically, wilting with longing against her coffin, "Like maple syrup."

Her sisters shook their heads, astounded; they had speculated the nature of her nightly wanderings over the last few months.

"Personally, I prefer being a bride and feasting on guests who visit the castle," scoffed one, "The villagers taste awful and dress terribly. Abysmal fashion sense, all of them."

Bike trip

This was a triumph
I'm making a note here:
It's hard to overstate
my satisfaction.

hey, people who write interactive fiction or choose your own adventure type things, i have some questions!

i'm planning on writing a text adventure engine and possibly a DSL for easy use of said engine. what would be some things you would absolutely require from a text adventure engine?

boosts appreciated!

headache is trying to sneak behind eyes and only predictive text input is saving me from typos. Hopefully coffee will help as the kid wants to make a bike trip to nearby park now that she learned to bike.

yesterday we saw a bumblebee queen setting up for hibernation. If bumblebees are big, their queens are positively gigantic, and adorably fluffy.

I know lots about transformers. There's the good ones called Autobots and then there's the bad ones called Decepticons. Third, the most nefarious category is called Monads.

Finally found it!!
The story I have been searching for, which is about person having piles and piles secrets around their house that they don't even remember.

It's Unhasped by David J. Schow and I read it in Best New Horror 11 anthology.

cw meta, + 

Once again, for the back row: cw's aren't here for us to shame each other. They're there so we can make meaningful expressions of care to our fellow fediverse-ians. cw-shame is some techbro nonsense bullshit.

I appreciate your cw's even if they aren't precise language. I appreciate them if even I don't have a trigger they address. I appreciate them even if they miss something that wigs me out. I just, really like topic headings in the first place? And having them normalized is one of the things that drew me here from Traditional Social Media. So good job. Keep up the good job.

neurodivergent people: hello. we are Very Very aware that this behavior can be harmful but it's something we struggle with and people's response to us struggling with it is like, Extremely Harmful. can you not
other neurodivergent people who feel like they don't have to critically analyze their ableism because they're also nd: have you considered that you're just an asshole??

well, looks like *somebody* hasn't written intelligence gathering about ships yet. No info, no data to display.

not gonna track who sleeps where, only that there's enough of bunks. Also, hot bunking isn't an option. I played around with the idea and it got very complicated very quickly.

Sometimes to get through a tough time, what you really need is for someone to believe in you.

If friends are temporarily absent, magic can provide!

Corva's Curious Compendium provides a spell for just this eventuality.

Maybe a bit of cheating helps. If I need to add new info panel, I can start by adding an empty list containing all the required HTML

poking code for fun but not really feeling it. UI stuff is tricky and I'd rather nap.
