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.

Notre Dame on fire, personal sorrows 

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:

Zoë Blade's album “Hello Calm” might be one of the very few things in life that actually manage to calm me down (and not make me feel depressed).
