I would just like to take a moment and remind you that the people running your Mastodon instance are normal dorks like yourself, who are probably doing it as a side project.
If you want something from us, it's not a good idea for your first contact about it to be dripping with bitterness and sarcasm. Please be chill with your admin. Thanks. 💓
I think my favorite thing about the fediverse is that it actually never feels like I'm screaming into a void. It feels like I'm thinking out loud to a group of strangers who, despite not knowing me, are supportive and interested in what I have to say.

Last week: found a 5L mini keg of beer someone stashed behind a tree during a party over a year ago. Bad beer, worse for sitting. The beer should be dumped & the keg recycled, but they weren't thoughtful enough to leave the tap for it behind. What to do?
6:00am today: Wiley E. Coyote super genius idea! drill a hole top & bottom and it'll glug out into the sink!
6:01am: a geyser of beer & foam inundates the yurt kitchen.
10:50am: clean up finished.
Moral: caffeinate first, then reconsider.

Time for another break. Beer and water this time.
Water break on the trail with Mercalli and his BFF Toby (currently being a camera hog).
This is Lacie. She is the saddest dog in the world. Never in the history of dogs has there been a sadder dog. You see, we live in Atlanta. And in Atlanta, the weather is usually pretty great. But today? Today, it’s raining. And rain means no walk. And walks are the best thing EVER. And not having a walk is the worst thing EVER. So, please keep her in your thoughts. 💔
