"Did it hurt?"

"Did what hurt?"

"When you fell from heaven."

"…It was the single most painful experience of my life. Tossed away like chaff, my wings… oh my beautiful wings! Burned away… gone in an instant! Hurtling toward this rock, we made mountains where we struck, my siblings and I.
Never to fly again, never to rise and soar, but left to walk and climb this rock forever. Every moment here is an agonizing reminder of what I've lost. Yes, it hurt, more than you can possibly imagine."

"Val- how do you do it? What is your secret?"
Me: *looks left, looks right*
Me: *motions to come closer*
Me: *leans over and whispers in ear*
"But- you just… made whispering noises?”
Me: *smiles, winks and gives finger guns*

I don't know who you are. Or whether you're a man or a woman. I may never see you or cry with you or get drunk with you. But I love you. I hope that you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and that things get better, and that one day people have roses again. I wish I could kiss you.


I enjoy spicy breakfast foods. JalapeΓ±o bagels, or a pepper jack omlette, etc. Wakes my mouth up and I feel more ready for the day.

Penumbral eclipse tonight/early morn tomorrow.

Maximum eclipse visible in North and South America.

Alright folks, I really need some .

I'm trying to get an extremely basic AP setup going where people can follow a single account on a server and get automatically-generated updates when actions are performed. Specifically, I want to process followers and send a post to followers when someone adds a book to or removes one from Little Library. It's pretty much 100% server to server with very little client input beyond prompting the server to post.

So far, I have an outbox and a way to view posts. I'm trying to get that set up so I can start researching what I receive from a Mastodon follow request in order to learn what data to save and send Create activities to. But when I search for a specific post from Mastodon, it errors out with a 503 error from the Masto server...

Here is the folder of the repo with my implementation so far:

And here is my (temporary) live AP actor endpoint with a piece of live data:

Thanks in advance!

I once had a bad dream that, not only was Metroid being turned into a movie, but Uwe Boll was making it.

I think if our society was optimized for happiness not productivity we'd be a lot more productive

Friend: I dunno, the way things are going, I think the world might be coming to an end.
Me: πŸ˜€ Promise?
Friend: … uh, no? I don't have any control over that?
Me: πŸ™… Don't be a tease.

I like big butts and I cannot lie. My sister likes big butts and cannot tell the truth. You may ask us one question to solve our riddle...

Ever have that feeling… where you're not sure if you're awake or still dreaming?

All the time. It's called "mastodon".

Riboflavin is my favorite vitamin.

What's yours?

Why, yes - I just patted around on the bed trying to to find where I placed my phone with one hand while scrolling through the time line on my phone with the other.

How's your morning?

All 3 issues of Blue Pill Arcade are now available digitally on Gumroad!
(it's cheaper through patreon, but i realise not everyone can or wants to use it)
I don't know how to pitch it anymore. "Wholesome romance, except there's drugs and trauma and VR??"

My stealth goal is being able to open a biodegradable SunChips bag without a sound.

One of these days, @botequippedwith is going to tell us to get equipped with BUBBLE LEAD.🀞
