"Why are you dressed like you're going to a really old-fashioned funeral but with your sleeve folded to indicate your desire to marry the widow? And why are you wearing a Leaf Day sash with your ceremonial HARVEST dagger?"
"Felt like it."
"Are you just doing this to mess with the foreign guests who're trying very hard to be respectful & polite?"
"Yeah. Wanna join me?"
"Absolutely. I'll go get nana's Coming-Of-Age hammer and my Winter torc."

I am loving rss feeds again. I stopped using one around the time google reader died, but I started again because I was tired of having stuff I viewed be recommendations rather than stuff I actually subscribed to. I def have to be careful about overdoing it with the feeds, but right now I have a good amount of articles and content to choose from without being overwhelmed.

Why yes I am spending my afternoon writing scripts for my classes I'm going to be running soon. Nothing quite like trying to figure out how to impress kids with electronics.

After sleeping on it, I think #Mastodon should rename ‘instances’ to ‘Communities.’

Instances feels too technical and I see even savvy people struggling to understand it.

I argue communities would make much more sense. It denotes much of the purpose behind _why_ this service has different instances, and many people will already be familiar with the concept from Reddit (the, what, sixth most popular site on the net?).

Someone's come up with some alternatives for the Space Force budget:

Blackkklansman was really good. It def knew where to hit you. Racists are alive and well, and as funny as it was to see them tricked and thwarted in the film, it never let up that white supremacists are active and wish people death and subjugation. Gotta do some thinking.

A helpful guide for introductions in social situations:

Watching press junket shit for Dog Days before I see Blackkklansman. I just couldn't do that job personally. Interviewer or interviewee. So much lack of depth. "If you were to have a dog night out, what dog would you be?"
Well at least there's local funeral home ads.

I finished a pretty accurate version of @descartez 's card game! It's a single-player version of the game which makes it nearly impossible to win unless you're super lucky, but you get some helpers like a shorter play time.

If he's ok with it being shared, I'll drop a link for it!

Why yes, I did get my business cards to feature the old ZX Spectrum's classic rainbow stripe. Because while I may never own one myself, I love the design.

New theory re: pokemon: Professor Oak is face blind. Which is why he asks if you're a boy or a girl. Still waiting for pokemon to accept a nonbinary gender option, but considering they _just_ put black people into the games it might be a long wait.

I posted about my friend's situation in PA but it's become much more dire. Anyone in the harrisburg pa area that can help a trans girl find a place to live please contact me.

My recent project (the one with the patent) possibly has it's second customer. It's a start, and I'm excited to see it continue.

Designing Cyberdecks because I am A GIANT NERD. probably going to make the bottom most one. Use a laser cutter to cut two pieces of acrylic and then use spacers to sandwich a raspi in between the two plates. What will I use it for? IDK

Watched the Justice League VS Teen Titans animated movie last night and I loved it. Not revolutionary, but solid. A great moment: Every one gets a magical girl style transformation into their costumes, except for Robin. He has to run to the car and get his stuff.

The logo for my game, Night Hike (working title).

"You and your friends are going out for a hike, only to find it's night, you're lost, and being hunted by something. You discover a body, gruesomely murdered. This body will give you clues as to the monster that is hunting you. Can you survive until dawn?"

"Your sacrifice?" the demon asked.
"Skyrim," I reply.
The demon studied me, saw the years I poured into that game. "Done. You'll never play Skyrim again."
And that's how I mastered Fortnite, and keep winning.
