subtoot of various people over the years, about me
Other people, to friends / public: "I like lots of people and [probably | maybe] even you!"
Me: "Yeah, but you don't mean *me*, I'm sure."
Them: "Every. One. Of. You."
Me: "But still, surely not me."
(I still think I'm right. It appears I need explicit indications on this subject.)

black mirror s05 cws, marginally spoilery
From memory, may miss a few, but hopefully nothing major. Deliberately not necessarily in chronological order in the episode to avoid being too spoilery.
e01 / Striking Vipers: infidelity, minor animated violence, very minor blood
e02 / Smithereens: sui, drunk driver, ~minor blood, guns, kidnapping
e03 / Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too: family manipulation + abuse, some psych horror, kidnapping, drugs, possible sui ideation, ambiguous mouse + human death
Internal monologue while scrolling back through many hours of toots: "Who is this, and who boosted like a million of their toots into my timeline? ... oh, wait, @gdkar changed their avatar. Never mind."
(boosts appreciated if your followers might have useful ideas and you're amenable)
For those of you who've grown out bangs: what do I do with my hair while it's long enough to get in my eyes but not long enough to tuck behind an ear?
I recently obtained Bobby pins, which are doing a good job of keeping hair off my eyebrows etc. (which is unexpectedly nice), but I neither know how to arrange them to look nice, nor whether there are better alternatives.
work-adj, pride-adj, request
I've gotten a request from someone at work for any recommended reading on the history of pride month. Anyone have suggestions? I'm thinking less an exclusive focus on Stonewall, more that-plus-history-since-then.
(They're likely to send it to the whole company, so something with a broad audience would be good.)
Huh, discourse I know things about. (I didn't participate in any part of this particular event, but I can cogently argue - and have experience with - most sides of it.)
I'm keeping my mouth shut in public (besides this), but if you earnestly want to understand a given position, send me a direct message. I have zero interest in defending a position, but I can explain where most of the actors are coming from.
kinda bragging, re: kind of a subtoot, attention / busyness meta
(I am super not above making technical changes: the ability to mute boosts from a user? That happened because of a similar thing with a different person I follow. Just a question of what will work.)
kind of a subtoot, attention / busyness meta
Trying to figure out the appropriate way to deal with someone who posts a lot and where I'd like to pay attention, but don't have, like, *that much* attention to spare. A way to disable self-boosts? Collapsing of sequential toots from the same user in the timeline?
Asking the person in question to tone it down isn't my style, but technical solutions to social problems are often flaky. 😕
(An entirely uneventful flight followed. Made good time.)
