Near the southern edge of California's Pacific Northwest, three cats try to get better service from their humans. Mendocino Co, CA, Twilight Zone. #nobot
Good morning, Tootie-buddies!
Here are some good kitties to help you have an awesome day
Mario cart rides again!
UPDATE: Apparently he's recovering and mainly being treated for parasites and obviously he's still pretty skinny but they say he's able to climb the walls of his enclosure and is due to be released in a few weeks.
Good morning, Tootie-Buddies!
It's nearly half-past October, and #NaNoWriMo is right around the corner!
Sure, we could argue all day about whether a 30-day 50,000 word writing challenge is appropriate during a month when we're trying to complete hand-crafted items to give as gifts instead of store-bought stuff bought at the last minute and destined for the landfill!
But I digress, which is good practice for #NaNoWriMo! All words count even digressions destined for the digital landfill!
laundry, shitpost Show more
When I was in my early 20s, once a week, usually Sunday morning, I would strip my bed, stuff my sheets, laundry, towel, dish towels, etc in my backpack, with a small container of detergent, and hike the mile or so to the laundromat.
A lifetime later:
Why is there so much more laundry now?
hey yall, if you’re looking for ways to help after the hurricane, here are a couple things to note:
-sending cash doesn’t feel as good as sending stuff, but it’s actually much more effective
-local grassroots organizations have a better sense of the needs of communities than big NGOs
-before giving to a new charity, check their score on Charity Navigator
-the Red Cross is trash

I need everyone in tech and especially in tech media to stop misleadingly and credulously calling machine learning technology "AI". Nobody has invented AI. Nothing on the market is AI. Not Siri, not Watson, not anything. It does not exist.
Wotan again because why not
I'd really like to open a window in here to get it cold enough to sleep, but my cat looks so cozy and now I'm conflicted
So. I moderate the Suppressed Transmission G+ group. We focus on positing articles about more or less real world events and commenting on how they could inspire a roleplaying game.
Does anyone want to suggest alternatives? Threaded interface would be best. Full-text searchable would be best (so you can find that article you saw six months ago you half-remember). Previews of the article would be good. #roleplaying #googleplus

my hold on the reins of my life started slipping from my hands.
Even then I was fairly confident that with some planning and work, I could totally get things back on track.
But I couldn't. And I can't. There's no way to go back.
I may be having a hard time right now in coming to grips with the idea that this track is an entirely different track than the one I was on previously. Or thought I was on.

I'm stressed. It seems like I've been stressed for fucking ever. But then my husband reminded me about my cookbook NaNoWriMo, and a friend reminded me about my an art project that I started and should finish...
Then I remembered: before all these stressful things happened, I had a life. And even while the stressful life-altering events were taking place, I still held onto parts of my life.
It wasn't until everything went to shit mid-December 2017 that
