Last week I read a report my boss was about to release. I flagged like 3 errors in the German part, 20 in the English abstract and summary. That was an expected amount for my bosses English skills, I thought.
My boss today: Thank you for your remarks, especially on the English part - however.... that was done by a translation office and we're not supposed to change anything.... so....
Now I am going back and forth between doubting my own skills and theirs...
@julia this looks great on you <333
@GwenfarsGarden awesome, I was wondering how this is called last week ;D
@julia absolutely, this is super weird! My fingers are crossed ;)
@julia uff... absolutely depending on the person, how quick that person usually responds, if there is anything in their live that I would need to worry about anyway... So like anything from hours to weeks could be worrying, depending on person and situation.
@julia things are flying over your roof weirdly often!
@ConnyDuck OH MY! I'm more excited than I should be ;)
Went to bed earliest at 2am last three nights and I am pretty tired now... But last three nights were spent playing (Shadowrun, boardgames, mystery dinner) so I am not complaining.
My days I have spent mainly playing #anno1800 so I'm purposely taking a break on the balcony now to see the sun.

We were invited to a birthday party/mystery dinner party and I was a little witch - so I basically spent my night practicing my witchy laugh - worked out well. Wish I had taken a picture earlier, this is late night, bad lighting & fading make up. Put on the weirdest nail polish color I could find.

Ich habe meiner Schwester von Mastodon erzählt - Sie ist so genervt von Twitter! Welche deutsche Instanz könnt ihr empfehlen, ist sie offen oder habt ihr evtl. einen Invite?
Meine deutscher Account ist auf Ruhr.social, da passt sie geografisch aber nicht rein ;)
@julia Uhh, we could have been club-homies even back then! <3
Who knows, maybe I'm super bored and will make us a club card :D
Notre Dame, billionaires' charity Show more
So, to summarise: a billionaire is "pledging to donate" to the repairs. Not only did this billionaire already steal twenty times his announced donation from the French people (wage theft notwithstanding), but his personal friend and employee with ties to the French government (albeit not nominally a lobbyist!) is working for said donation to be all but entirely covered by that very same French government. How generous indeed.
@julia Doesn't mean its not true! ;)
Btw, do we get club cards?
notre-dame, funding, taxes Show more
Let's not forget how donations of 100 million € are peanuts for companies or families like that, especially if your company (allegedly) has evaded taxes in the amount of 2.5 billion euros
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
