Dear Peaches would like a refill on the tuna pleeease

Related to this, what instances do you love?

I'm going to be trying out some new instances over the next few days--there are so many that sound cool!--so I'll probably be more confused than usual for a little while ;)

Morning: feed cats, feed sourdough starter, feed self.

I read those Pony Club books when I was little. Whenever the main characters would take their ponies on a ride and stop for a break by the river, first thing they'd do was make sure their ponies were fed and comfortable. Only then would they get their own snacks. For some reason this really stuck with me.

Feed your beasties first, then take care of yourself.

(That said, I usually get the coffee started before all of the above.)

Good morning. What a weird day-it's so foggy out. We almost never get fog. Or at least not for a long time.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Fuck Tesla. Fuck the entire auto industry. I want foot paths, bike paths, buses, trams, and passenger rail throughout the USA and on a 15 minute schedule.

Let's ban cars.

And I want trans-oceanic trains. Fuck the airlines, too.

Good night from sleepy Peaches the cat

The green salsa from the empanada place is suuuuper spicy tonight!

The New Yorker article on Zuckerberg/Facebook is pretty interesting. I'm reading it slowly at work. I'm not quite done yet but would love to hear other people's thoughts if anyone want to share.
