a bedtime talk with george, prelude Show more
This is "A Talk with George", a song by Jonathan Coulton. It's a good song, but I figured I'd turn it into a bit of a bedtime story and spread it across the nights.
I don't even necessarily agree with the ending, but I like it nonetheless, as an inspirational thing.

'morning, Mastodon folks! Hopefully yours is pleasant. Don't forget to take care of yourself this week.
It seems to have been a generally good day in the fediverse. Lots of nice posts, and quite a few nice people around. I hope everyone had a good day, and gets a chance to do it all again tomorrow.

So after having posted a very CW-able thing in a Slack, and having this pointed out to me, and bemoaning Slack's lack of CWs (besides topic-channels, but the "bad things" channel doesn't really cut it), I finally stumbled upon a way to do it.

(I suspect this isn't original, but I didn't realize it was a possibility.)
chocolate Show more
I enjoy chocolate. I enjoy dark chocolate. I enjoy chocolate that invokes the flavor of coffee. So naturally I enjoy this "dark espresso" chocolate. But I only want it in the evenings, which is exactly when I shouldn't have it. (I'm fairly sensitive to caffeine.)
Resolution for the rest of the night: fewer takes, more sleeping. 'night, folks.
Just queued 42,925 LaTeX renders. How's *your* Sunday going?
Coffee kind of day.
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was " "
Request: I'm looking for very tiny (~0.5mm), colored, non-reflective flakes. Think "nail polish glitter, if it wasn't shimmery". Is there a term for this?
(Closest I've come is "cosmetic glitter", but almost all of that is reflective. Even as a nail polish making supply, I'm having trouble finding any that aren't metallic.)
This is a personal Mastodon instance.
