toot!

I am a 29 year old cis straight guy. I live in Milan, , where I work in software development, but I don't really toot about it, so don't worry!

I like to (especially by public transport), to read, and to practice .

I'm on Mastodon since April 2017. Some sensitive topics I talk about (always with CWs) are mental health and Italian politics.

⭐ My more laid-back account is @miramarco, you can hit me up there!

A while ago I spoke positively about people shortening my nickname to “Marco”.

I retract that and I am asking everybody to stop calling me that way.

Marco is NOT my name and has never been; the nickname I chose is “miramarco”. I’d rather hear it shortened to “mira” than “marco” to be honest.

Happy international day of trans visibility, friends!

My top answer would be the film in Andrew Irvine's camera, which could reveal whether he and George Mallory actually reached the top of Mount Everest in 1924.

Close second, the original Apollo 11 moon landing tapes. We have low quality copies, but having the master tapes would be delightful.

Maybe also the Watergate tapes, the ones “accidentally” deleted by Nixon's secretary?

This is a bit of a niche question, but I'm curious:

A jinn grants you a wish: You'll be able to recover one (and only one) piece of lost media. It can be anything: a lost painting, a lost movie, a lost book, a lost photograph… anything as long as it's something that is considered to be lost in the present day. What would you choose?

On a good day, put together a little self-care package you can pull out for bad days. Include a few things you know will help.

My mother-in-law just called my phone to wish eldest child happy birthday. I hand him my phone at he looks at it in complete confusion. I have to explain it’s a regular phone call, not a video call, and he had to put it up to his ear to hear her. He still looks super confused so I switch it to speaker phone.

Youngest child spends the entire call insisting we’re doing it wrong because he can’t see Nana’s face.

Reminder: moisturize your hands last thing before going to bed tonight!

With all the extra hand washing right now you will likely need it. And doing it over night is great because it gets to sink in properly and not get washed off.

You can use oil, lotion or a balm.

im pretty sure writing image descriptions makes you a better shittooter. Having to convey in words why your image is funny is a good lesson in analysing what is funny.

A very important poll:

It seems like a lot of people are feeling justifiably anxious right now and having trouble dealing with it. A lot of common anxiety management strategies assume your fears are irrational, so here are some tips that might help deal with it when they aren't!

Thread. The rest will be unlisted.

Like, seriously. If you don't have the full support and buy-in of EVERYONE who rents from the same landlord as you, DO NOT take part in the general rent strike!
