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!

Oh, today is also my last day in the office for this year. I will be on a business trip next week and then I’ll be on holiday until January 6th

I finally sorted the custom emoji of this instance by mood (more or less).

Wow. I learned about Asexual Awareness Week last year, when someone on Fedi posted a toot *after* the week was over.

I felt a bit disappointed: It would have interested me a lot, and somehow I had missed all the posts‽ Did anyone actually talk about it?

But this year I’m seeing many more posts about Ace Week on my home timeline and it makes me so happy :queercat_ace:

work, personal (~) 

A special thank you to all my lovely mutuals who are putting up with my complaining and who are helping me through this tough time. You are precious and wonderful and amazing :blobhearteyes:

blob.coffee code of conduct update 

Omg :blobwoah:

The custom emoji categories show up in the latest version of the Mastodon emoji picker :blobcatsurprised:

This means I can divide the blob emojos by mood :blobidea:

This changes ev-ery-thing :blobwhee:

work complaint 

I just learned that, when one of our customers tried to call me on a Saturday morning, they also called one of our project managers.

Who was on vacation.

And it wasn’t even 7am when they called him.

But the weirdest thing is that he answered the call :blobglarecoffee:

This must have been the 594th “ping” sound I’ve heard in the last 10 minutes from the other side of the office.

I’m sooooo close to go there and shout “This is an open space, for heaven’s sake put that f@€&!ng phone to vibrate mode!”

Also, people know that I have a 9-to-5, Monday-to-Friday job. Do they really think I am going to answer a work phone call at 8am on a Saturday morning? Let me sleep, for heaven’s sake

And once again my decision to put my work phone in airplane mode during the weekend proves to be a smart choice

It’s 09:46 and no colleagues of mine have shown up at this side of the office yet, so I guess I’ll be the only one here today :blobmeh:

Note to self: My own facial expressions, my gestures and my body postures are not as explicit as I think they are. I cannot expect other people to pick up such cues about my emotions, even if I believe that those cues are sufficiently clear. I need to verbalize my emotions instead.

I was lucky that mosquitoes were quite inactive in June and July, but they recovered quickly. I think I have been bitten a dozen times in two days :blobugh:

work 

I need a vacation. I’m really looking forward to next week :blobbroken:
