pondering on smiles 

weeding camp 

My biz partner, my romantic partner, and myself all skipped out of work this afternoon to watch my friend from Nebraska perform v good slam poetry along with a bunch of other v v good poets.

Friday night briefing 

My dog just pulled a spare blanket out from under the couch, dragged it through the living room and kitchen, out the back door, and set it on the patio in the sun. Now he is laying on it.

Musing on this (as a reply to self becuase SOMEONE had better taste than me and back out of their toots on the subject):

Candidates that scan: anything with a stress on the first syllable and an unstressed second syllable seems like it'd work.

Billygoat, check!
Labrador, sure!
Octopus, okay!

Flamingo? No dice with that main stress on syllable 2.

Sandpiper, woodpecker? Nah, even with the primary stress on syllable 1, the secondary stress on syllable 2 makes it feel wrong.

Thanks for the information, potential clients who want to talk about their project TOMORROW and then never reply again when you attempt to schedule a meeting for tomorrow, lol.

email from the maker of my dog's fluffy pink dog bed 

I missed friend.camp movie night but my friend in NYC just shared this with me. Dang I wish I was there. I can only assume “Cage in the Park” is like Shakespeare in the Park

Are you ever too tired to peel yourself from the couch into an actual way more comfortable bed?

Tip: if you pronounce "foot" to rhyme with "cute," you can write even more good songs to sing to your dog.

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp) * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet! Our beautiful icon is based on photo3idea_studio from www.flaticon.com, licensed CC 3.0 BY. It has been modified by @casey@friend.camp!
