Mom to Dad: โ€œYouโ€™re sensitive about your bakery moistness.โ€

every time I feel embarrassed about a person I was in the past, I try to remind myself that I've had character development since then.

The fediverse is probably the most important thing i feel like I'm involved with right now. As we start having these conversations about social media, the fediverse is something I can point to where many kinds of community models are explored outside the almost defacto context of ad-driven services. It feels good to be here. It feels good to know that we have relcalaimed some of the most revolutionary social technology from monolithic exploitation.

The plan is to go to Ikea today and buy shelving for my closet and our coat closet. If I don't show up again, somebody send a search party!
