When you have to ask the vet if it's okay to vacuum the cat.

One of my favorite things about watching movies with my Granny happens when a kissing scene comes on. She yells "Yucky, yucky!" and I make loud obnoxious slurping noises. Through some miracle of biology we are both nine years old.

LOL LOL I shared this thing with @callkathy to test and she's beating the hell out of it. In a good way.

Don't really care about meaningless bromides served up in the name of moral largesse from the ruling class, but I'll lose every last bit of my shit if I find out they're plagiarized.

Help me overcome my impostor syndrome and reassure me you don't already have a Google Sheets tool that takes a topic you specify and generates several sets of Google queries ranging from simple (one topic) to deep dive (multiple keyword sets) using Wikipedia data.

Facebook offering a dating app makes me wonder exactly what planet I am on.

If you ask me to name something I will ALWAYS name it Fred. Unless it's named Fred, in which case I will name it Ethel. WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING ME

I have a bunch of friends from Twitter joining Mastodon tonight so I made a quick guide to how the site works. Making it public so anyone can see/boost it if it's helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

TWITTER: Everybody shitting themselves about the WHCA dinner.

MASTODON: @ksonney 's chickens, @lilithsaintcrow 's writing, @Virelai 's knitting.

I like Mastodon better.

Oh are we doing cats today? I don't have any recent pictures of the supervisors but my mother got a new dog and I took about ten thousand pictures of her Wednesday. Her name is Sprite. I have been calling her 7Up, Club Soda, Sierra Mist, Ginger Ale...

I made a flow chart of which #Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

Mastodon Pro Tip: Masto assumes that all URLs are 20 characters long. There's no need for URL shorteners - let people see what you're linking to!

I actually think the web mobile interface is all right. But I know a bunch of y'all are trying apps. I want detailed reviews!

Hey y'all, Barry's at @Barry and he's trying to learn all about Mastodon. Please boost/say hi/ give him some reason to keep moving away from Facebook. :)

Well that article didn't end up how I thought it would.

My mother got a dog. It's the goofiest looking dog I ever saw. It has a mohawk.
