"Be careful at Five Fingers," he says. "Don't forget to use the right-hand channel."
"I know," I tell him. "The old steamboat channel."
"That's right. The steamboat channel. Keep to the right."
And then he adds, as if by an afterthought: "I lost my father in Five Fingers. Many years ago. He took the other channel."
...Is the Yukon even in real life?

Okay, I have all 99 ABBA songs ranked according to my personal taste.
Now I am going to start a new knitting project so I can continue to not think about... things.

After months of intense ABBA exposure, I am embarking on the multihour project of determining my ordering of ABBA songs.
A few hours in, I have the top 30 picked out and I am still on songs that I have a big attachment to.

OMG, the squirrels I saw on my walk today were so chubby and cute! Makes me want to curl up, eat cookies and become an adorable chubby skwurl!
albin.social rundown Show more
albin.social is a new mastodon derived instance
it has many negative traits that mean you as an instance admin should defederate
-harvests user data, presumably from all federation as well as local users
-plans to run off ads fed that data
-for profit, corporate adjacent based monetary goals, instead of user centric
-no features to sell you other than "ads = stability" in their twisted logics
boost and defederate, folx
Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.
There is no inherent shame in failure, in not knowing, or in being wrong, and we shouldn't actively shame others for it.
Get back up, learn something new, and try again.
ABBA, drug mention Show more
I can't get over the reported fact that nobody even offered the members of ABBA drugs during the 1970s. Did they have no friends? Did people not share drugs in Sweden in the 1970s? Was it just Björn? Did everyone else get drugs and just not invite Björn because he would worry? Are they just still lying about it?
