The weirdest thing ever being someone from a poor background who grew up in the "hood" is how people talk about me like I'm so extraordinary and talented and quick witted but there's 10 other folks I grew up with who have the same level of skill and wits and talent still waiting for their chance.

7:44 am - someone in the house starts to hammer and drill...
8:00 am - yeah, all done now apparently...?! Well thanks for doing it before 8 then.

It's WORLD PANGOLIN DAY! My timeline does not have enough pangolins on it considering this fact and nor does yours, so please accept this contribution.

Had a good time at the nursery, always a pleasure.
I bought a Calathea medaillon, a pilea peperomia and a Croton. Last one is a replacement plant because I've overwatered my Croton and part of it died away slowly :( I'll see what I can do for the small part that still looks healthy.

Find a gorgeous large plant at my favorite nursery. No price, little red tag, but not the usual "not for sale tag" - I ask someone and they say "sure, 24.95". Cool, I think, and carry it towards the cashier. Walk past the boss of that place and he looks at me like 😲😲😲.
H: Did someone give you a price for this?!
Me: yeah... 24.95?
H: what?? No no, that's our plant for propagation... I'm sorry! I mean, you COULD buy it but the price would be more like 300...?
M: haha okay, no.

OMG! In the moderation tools of #mastodon, you can edit the capitalisation of #hashtags! This'll affect how they are displayed under "Trending Now", and how they are auto-completed (at least in the web client, haven't tried in an app yet).
After accidentally turning FediWorlds into fediworlds three friggin' times, now here the canonical version IS FediWorlds!

This has been happening for a few month now and a lot of those websites have been reported and taken down, but new ones are appearing daily.

What is new to me is that not only Ravelry pattern pictures are affected but sometimes also user pictures. Not sure if they really use Ravelry to source those or just Pinterest.

If you do buy those, you'll get a very cheap replica from China, returns will only go to China too, at your own cost.

Short public service announcement. If you see advertising for cheap, relatively unique looking clothing from a website you've never heard of before... And the website has a very heterogenous look, headless models, different styles etc. These porducts don't exist - the photos of knitted sweaters show mostly handknit sweaters .from the fibre community website .

Planted some of my rooted spider plant babies in a pot and put it down in the "sharing cabinet" at work just now, it took approximately 10 seconds to find a new owner, person walking behind me went "oh that's cute!" and took it.
I love that sharing cabinet!

365 days of with , yaay! That's especially great because when I started doing Anki again last february after a couple of month I didn't plan to be this meticulous, I just starded doing it again and tada, one year later :) I also do geography and trivia things now with Anki which might have helped to stick with it.

I decided to make a linen stitch cowl with my Malabrigo yarn and it's looking pretty on both sides <3
