This kid is really fun. He's in high school, has no idea what things are, and explains them to Zoomers. This is the Rob Zombie episode: watchnebula.com/videos/alex-go

The financial cast system is centuries old. But any "I'm the one paying so I don't wear a mask" is bullshit. Most people don't even realize they're doing it.
:( This is "new," classist assholism.

Small outdoor country wedding went well. :)
Because I'm me:
Food served from line by catering staff wearing masks, nobody touched common objects. Guests mostly not wearing masks, down the line laughing and joking. I'm concerned we're creating a "new" servant class where we mindlessly put workers at risk without even thinking about it. PLEASE any time you walk up to someone wearing a mask put your fucking mask on!

Oh neat! Mastodon has a NOTE feature on other people's profiles where I can put a note about whatever about that person. Like where I heard about them or "friend of X" or whatever. I've wanted this FOREVER for book / music recommendations -- so when I finally get around to listening to / reading a thing in my backlog I know who to thank for the recommendation 3 years ago. :)

I Wrote up my pineapple cashew curry fried rice that I made a lot for #foodnotbombs

It's a great recipe and really nice to make for a crowd, whether it is for charity or not.

I asked people for plastic bags on Next Door for . People said they had "a lot" and gave me 10. Then Lynette happened.
Apparently she saves them for a relative whose company makes art out of them. iconpolystudio.com/

online is a magic place where your expertise on ANY matter is directly proportional to how much bored free time you have that particular day.

“You can’t tell me its bedtime, that violates the GDPR! I have a right to privacy over my sleep schedule” some kid, age 8, probably.

Pro tip for Republican party: I'm skeptical of all positive political advertisements. But your smear campaigns against Kara H. Eastman and Biden (mailers, YouTube ads) have motivated me greatly to vote FOR them.
So to spend your money wisely, start smearing REPUBLICANS for being "corrupted by the extreme left" -- that might trick me into researching the possibility of ever voting for any R.

And anytime I feel shitty I feel shitty about feeling shitty because I'm whining from a huge mountain of privilege while billions of people SUFFER with ACTUAL fucking problems which makes me furious at myself which makes me very sad.

Anxiety mini-mountain 

Covid, wedding this weekend, friends wanting to travel, online chat drama, feeling like I'm behind / failing a series of tasks on a list of lists... It's fucking me up. Work productivity suffering first... because I'm really good at being in denial / avoidance of my mental health shit?
At least my nicotine addiction is back in full swing!

"federated community" problems 

In principle, federated communities are great. Ban-hammer all the Nazis and trolls! Yay!
But it feels bad when I go to the admin reporting that I'm leaving channels to avoid someone and the response is "I've received [unspecified] complaints about YOU."
sigh.
I thought I was doing exactly the right thing?
I don't know how to fix.
Leave the entire "community" because the admin, who I never interact with, might cancel me anyway?

"Our login process has changed, resulting in higher than normal call volume. Thank you for your patience."
Ya, turns out when neither the old nor new login system for your bank work, people might call you...

I hope everyone downtown is safe right now. There are currently hundreds of cars and thousands of Trump supporters swarming downtown in flag waving lifted trucks. They are spraying people with mace and shooting them with paintball guns from the truck beds. Tons of people are in cosplay of the Kenosha militia guy. They are jumping out and beating people on the street. It's just escalating and escalating 😟
