Take care of yourself, Portland; see you in a week. Off to Hawaii.

This 10pm slot is a *super* tough decision tonight. :-/

The phone booth game (and the Imports/Exports bit) at is really excellent. Who did that?

Recommendations from personal experience for a good Android Mastodon app? My Android version is (and has to be) slightly outdated, but not terrible.

Is there a Mastodon instance for D&D (or RPG generally) characters? As in, in-character?

Unrelated, but... anyone want a dog? 😇

Shuffleboard with the three year old:

3: “Okay let’s do them all at the same time.”
Me: “I think you’re supposed to do them one at a time.”
3: “Yeah but we’ll do them all at the same time.”
[We do them all at the same time.]
Me: “Okay, I got 5 and you got 1.”
3: “No, I got 7.”
3’s dad: “How did you count seven?”
3: (on fingers) “1, 2, 3, 4, 5! ...6, 7.”
Me: “So you got 7 points because you counted to 7?”
3: “Yeah!”

In conversation with the 3.5-year-old this morning, we realized that airplanes and most cars are obligate carnivores because they run on dinojuice, but diesel engines are omnivores and can choose to be vegetarian by running on biodiesel or veg oil.

I’m in Banff for the week with friends, which is lovely and wonderful, but the air is a mess; possibly the smokiest I’ve ever seen. The sun just looked like a smoldering dim red disk all day.

Oh, so I'm starting to collect a list of people who might be interested in a native Mac tootclient...

Feel free to toot'n'boost this.

Taking the day off Twitter has pointed out how reflexively my finger goes to the Twitterrific spot on my phone.

Can you follow an ActivityPub stream that isn’t from Mastodon on here? Anyone got an example?
