People I prefer to avoid:

- Racists
- Homophobes
- People who don't understand that when I ask for "a couple" of something, I mean *exactly two*

I made jam for the first time last night... and it worked. I am basically a witch.

Douglas Adams is one of my favourite authors, but I had no clue how prescient he was:

"To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job." (from Restaurant at the end of the Universe)

I’m a writer and I married a software dev. “How does that work!?” Many people say... “simple” Says I, “I write about hackers and programmers and make him disclose the secrets of his dark world!” :D

Delete & re-draft is a nice quality of life thing to have in a social network.

I feel so ignorant when I see the diversity of language on here and can’t read anything but English. It’s a national problem... but still.

i dont care if you're a "doctor" and have "qualifications" im still eating gluten and dairy >:(

The German for porcupine is "Stachelschwein", which means prick pig

Ok so I almost just tooted a pic of my flat tummy, because I’m proud of it after a lot of hula, but then I chickened out. So take my word for it when I say, my tummy is quite flat right now.

(Very use of the word ‘quite’ as I’m not so self-assured that I’d use the words ‘very’ or ‘totally’)

I feel left out because I don’t have a cat to toot a picture of... perhaps I should get a cat... :blobcat:

@chartier USB-C means never having to say “just flip it around a third time and maybe it’ll finally fucking fit” again.

Now that I see some familiar faces from the blue instance it feels like people coming over for a visit and you have to put on pants in your own home...
