my mother found this little weirdo in the driveway. could be a million years old or just a baby... it stood still for five minutes with its weird little head hanging out. i assumed it was dead until it made cute/weird blinking and snapping faces.

vegan gluten-free baking 

i am mostly useless in the kitchen and allergic to almost everything but for whatever reason tonight i felt i had to do something with the bag of ghirardelli cocoa powder thats been in on the shelf for two years.

this was perfect perfect perfect:

basic pantry ingredients (oats blended to flour etc), a screwup-able recipe (i screwed up but just baked for somewhat longer) and now ...
COOKIES! Double chocolate cookies!!

Too early for lunch, can’t possibly get anything done until I’ve had lunch. hmm what a quandary guess I’ll just fuck about on the internet

Peaky Time 

whenever i'm super busy & cannot physically continue work, i collapse in bed with my laptop and watch the most entertaining dumb tv i can possibly find. Euphoria was great for this, but then I watched it all. Then I switched to Peaky Blinders, because it is also entertaining and dumb, and I could call my break "Peaky Time" but now i'm getting bored with it... But i plan to continue calling my dumb entertainment hour "Peaky Time"

self-googling as a wOmAn pUbLiC FiGuRe 

welp the "joanne mcneil age" related search has started popping up. can't be long before "joanne mcneil husband" follows suit

me: i can get work done despite having covid. it's a mild case, and i feel mostly fine.

also me: *misreads White House in a news story as a reference to the mid-aughts shopping mall fashion boutique franchise White House/Black Market*

The Machine That Kills Bad People 

Damn sounds like a great and useful machine and with no catch whatsoever

Was helping my sister configure her hand-down computer and apparently she uses NeoPets to benchmark "because the page is just so heavy and inefficient. If it runs the neopets solitaire smoothly, it's good enough fo me".

Mr Show 90s tech billionare sketch 

rewatching the series and just came upon this one on the Richard Stallman-esque "founder of the delete key"....


"Stencil on the left plant pot" 

thank you random wikipedian for documenting the cool graffiti in this picture despite it having nothing to do with the topic this image is used for

This is such an awful take. So many people who made Twitter a great community site now only use it to announce projects, if they haven’t quit entirely. Leaving looks like posting less, then reading less, then forgetting to read entirely.

TSA weirdness 

TSA was more backed up than I’ve ever seen it at Logan. They flagged almost half the bags that went through. understaffed as it is, this took forever. My bag was flagged because I didn’t take out my Kindle (bc “a tablet”) and then it was flagged a second time after which there were twelve other trays lined up for further inspection. The TSA agent thankfully grabbed it and didn’t make me wait again

Very weird. Anyway this has been my taking airport tweets off twitter toot

Atlanta recommendations? ATL fediverse meet-up? 

Wow such great recommendations—thanks everyone! I’m around most evenings next week if there’s any interest in a Mastodon meet-up

Atlanta recommendations? 

I’m in Cabbagetown for the next couple weeks. Anyone have recommended places to grab coffee/go for a walk/etc?

One of the joys of the fediverse is @tripofmice's monthly live blog of TeaTime Magazine, a magazine made for, well, mostly old lady tea enthusiasts
