@uma oh shoot quick warning though: the content is incomprehensible but might also deserve a big cw for kinda being... all over strange. i can't say ive read/grasped the whole thing so tread carefully!

@uma some selling points: player creation is done by pulling books from a bookshelf and opening to random pages

players are discouraged from reading most of the """rules"""

the authors describe it as basically a "fever dream of anger and confusion towards reality and everyone who plays it"

@uma use your light but awful chains

a really wild read is the normality rpg sourcebook, if you ever get the chance. it's basically an absurdist rpg

(date someone who can pick you up with ease)

@uma treasure robos! they're good!!

that "signs you're dating a robot" hashtag has been weighing on my mind a lot. it's a shock to suddenly remember that so many people don't understand cute robos and why you'd want to date them...

i tried to cheer up the tag a little but dang, it's got me down

i very badly need to play an ecco the dolphin game again

i really want to some day reach python guru, just because that feels like both an obtainable goal and a label i like

also really excellent programming is beautiful and i aspire to be able to create that

today on my commute i realized that "oh capitan my capitan" translates really cleanly as "la jatna mi jatna"

now that im caught up with electrum i have one question: do roboobs lend themselves to a "silicon valley" joke or is that out of line?

lojban's so dang cute

it's reassuring to me that my musings about the need for smaller social spaces are resonating with people - it tells me that they're on the right track

hmm alright, i think that in order to help commit myself to a learning effort, and also to remind myself to use/check mastodon, i'll try and toot lojban practice once a day

i'll put it behind a cw [cilre] and also it'll include the string "xamu" so you can filter that if you like!

also please please please, if i do make an error don't hesitate to correct me if you're up for it, i welcome the chance to learn!

oh whoops, i let my lojban practice slip and now i've forgotten a bunch, oh no
