Pinned toot

📌 Please read this before following:

This is my alt Mastodon account and it is intended for a more limited and intimate audience.

My plan is to leave this account locked for now and to accept follow requests only from people who are already mutuals of mine on my main (unlocked) account: @miramarco

So if we haven't interacted that much before, please let's do that through that account first :blobcat:

Lots of love :blobheart:

Pinned toot

By the way, I apologize in advance if I send a follow request to an account of yours if you would prefer me not to follow it. I won't take offence if you decline my request!

I am supposed to go to bed in half an hour and I still haven’t packed my stuff for tomorrow’s travel :blobawkward: In my defense, I have been tired all day :blob_sleeping:

My coworkers are chatting about smartphones again, and I’m like :eyeroll: *yawn*

It seems that not all the toots I post from this instance are federating to other ones. I wonder if it's a thing, or a compatibility issue between different versions of Mastodon. If you see this toot, feel free to let me know :blobhalo:

This is the second time I have to decline an invitation to a social event because it conflicts with one of the nights. There’s no way I’m going to miss us livetooting the event :blobpopcorn:

It’s funny that when I’m visibly in a grumpy mood, the people whose presence is more likely to distract me and cheer me up a bit stay silent and mind their own business, while the most annoying people keep pestering me with questions and unwelcome observations

My swimming instructor: I’ve been to NYC during the holidays. Have you ever been there?
Me: Yes, it was 10 years ago.
Her: Oh, so you were a kid back then.
Me: Well, it was my 1st year of uni.
Her: Wait, how old are you?
Me: I’m 29.
Her: I thought you were, like, 22 or 23!
Me: :blobouin:

I am putting my shoes on, and I just noticed that both of the socks I’m wearing have the letter ‘L’ sewn onto them. I am wearing two identical left socks.

I was adding a domain to my personal instance's blocklist and I thought that I should write down in a document all the reasons why I silenced or suspended all the instances in my blocklist.

This required a bit of research, and I ended up suspending 12 more instances :blobnotlike:

I just suspended a small instance from which I received three follow requests, despite the fact that I wrote in my bio and pinned toot that I would only accept them from mutuals.

Look, it's okay and even human to get distracted and forget to check a person's account, and I can tolerate that. But three requests of this kind in a row are not a coincidence and are enough of a nuisance for me to take action.

The joy of having a personal instance :blobcatcoffee:

*writes a deeply personal thread in a txt file*

I am ready to post it.

*copies and pastes first toot in the Mastodon composition field, hovers mouse over the “toot” button*

I am not ready to post it.

*saves txt file, deletes toot, goes back to browsing*

Me in the Fediverse: “Look at all these nice people from all over the world, and it’s amazing that we are able to communicate in English flawlessly” :blobaww:

Me at work: “Is this email supposed to be in English? I understand every single word of it, but all those words together don’t make any sense” :blobglare:

Today I learned that the Toyota Production System (the basis of lean manufacturing) was developed by Japanese engineer Taiichi Ohno.

All I could think of was :ohno: :oh_no_bubble:

:miramarcoffee: What’s the value I need to write here? Let’s look up the other table.

🧠 All right.

:miramarcoffee: Oh, it’s just the letter ‘T’.

🧠 Oh, okay. Here, I copied it.

:miramarcoffee: Did… Did I select, copy and paste just the letter ‘T’ in plaintext? Instead of only pressing the ‘T’ key?

🧠 Feed me coffee please.

I just realized that, since I have a one-day training at work this Thursday and I‘m having the next day off, this week should be relatively easy :blobsmile:
