Ooof, those times when you are watching a movie, you stop it because someone interrupts you with a series of text messages, and when their messages are over you no longer feel immersed in the movie and you struggle to resume watching it because now the movie feels like an extraneous story

Here's an emoji that I would have loved to use multiple times this week: a lit matchstick

I am glad to learn that my AC is not broken, it was just my housemate who needed an extra socket so he took a random plug off. (To be fair, the socket is in his bathroom.)

eurovision, ESC 2021, my top 10 

@shello Yeah, ranking them is not easy. I usually assign scores from 1 to 5, but this time I had, like, seven or eight songs rated 3.5, and I had to compare them two at a time to get a final top 10.

Anyway, happy to see Go_A as #1 in your ranking too! :blobcatphones:

If you are reading this, please tell me: Are the emoji in the toot I'm replying to displayed correctly in your instance?
