For the past half hour Justin has been lamenting about how weird and unnecessary names are by listing names and just saying how weird they are...
"George... GEORGE... that's just too much."

By far my best smart home automation chain is putting a switch on the hook my clothes peg container sits on so Home Assistant can send me a notification either before rain, if my local weather station unit detects rain, or half an hour before sunset if I leave clothes out drying.

a lot of people my age don't have TV because we realize the value proposition of "wait I pay for your service, and you STILL advertise to me?" is complete horseshit

I'm here for like two weeks. It feels much better than constantly being on Facebook. I'm calmer and more present.

But I really miss my #yarn and #handspinning tribe. I have noone to really share this passion with in real life, and there seems to be like I'm the only mastodon user in this niche.
Maybe I should not care and just create. It just feels a bit lonely like this.

Or maybe I'm just too stupid to navigate the #fediverse. But I'm really not that geeky Person...

The baker was late in all ways imaginable and this was simply unacceptable; she shed her skin and bones, they were weighing her down anyway, and made her way to her bakery.

At first sales flagged, the food presumed haunted... But being able to buy bread at any hour lured customers back.

so the story of the donkey kong videogame is that mario was abusive to his pet, donkey kong, so he ran away kidnapping his girlfriend pauline, right

what's not exactly defined in the story of the game itself is whether we're supposed to be taking donkey kong as a scared animal or a human-level intellect kidnapper

if it's the first then we can't really blame donkey kong for doing anything. if it's the latter then that means mario was keeping another person as a pet
