"My my, what a curious hoard," the prince said. He spied several items that seemed out-of-place. Mystical tomes, foreign delicacies, even a few vials of holy water.
"I collect that which your kind covets," the dragon replied. "Monetary value is not all that exists."
"Is that so?" The prince thought for a moment. "Then, if I may ask, what item in your hoard would you say is most valuable?"
The dragon didn't even hesitate. "Come now, your highness. Surely you must know the answer by now~"
The prince chuckled. "Don't you forget it, my love~"
Hey. We discovered today, that it is not so quite here in comparison to twitter, than we thought. Ju clicked on the menu points Plural Café and found a lot of toots to our surprise, and then on Federated, and found even more.
Now he is turned red and doesn't know what do feel.
Well, we keep on getting experience with social media, and so for us (Phil, Sascha, Pichan, N33) it's ok to know you've overseen a lot of things by not knowing they are there.
Am curious how our final balance will be (between Twitter and Mastodon).
Have a nice weekend
we got up to do something last night and our gf's cat, Steve, was up begging us to pay attention and we look down and she's clearly leading us to the empty food bowl. So we fill it, wander off to the bathroom, and she follows us in, headbutts our leg a few times, and then walks out.
She went through all the effort to thank us before she ate anything. Silly lovely cat.
Realizing and getting in touch with the fact I am clearly an obsessive kind of person, and that it derails my days and nights.
Just learning tonight that more than 25% of people having bipolar disorder do have obsessive behavior, why did nobody tell me that
Putting this in public so that it can help someone as clueless as myself hopefully
I guess the best compromise between security and usability will be to have a separate device with tor and stuff
(gets a used phone)
(feverish couple days of intense hyperfocus on configuration, hardening, exploring alternatives, rooting to privileged fdroid, buying dogecoin???, setting up secure rsync backups etc.)
ah finally a decent setup, this feels good :>
R: (starts using her accs on the separate phone)
E: ...oooh. oh!
E: so this is what this was all about
ableism / Chronic pain / jumping through hoops with doctors
Doctor: You have fibromyalgia.
Me: Oh, sweet. Finally a doctor who recognizes that.
Doctor: Here are some meds to manage the pain and magnesium to help with cramping.
Me: Cool! Can I also get a doctor's note for my work so they know I have fibromyalgia?
Me: ... Why not?
Doctor: Because I don't treat chronic pain. You need to see a specialist to get a note.
Me: ............... but you just.......... treated me....... for chronic pain............ and I need the note *now* for my work so I don't get fired when I miss days......
