Just going to put it out there that my fiancée and I have a guest room with a comfy bed and will happily host anyone that may need a visit to Colorado for undisclosed reasons.

I feel bad that I can’t give credit. This is a screenshot that was sent by a friend of a friend. But it is so apt about #NFT and #web3. #beaniebabies

My ass hurts so much I can barely sit straight. I won’t be taking any questions at this time.

Oh, get a focus? Just get a focus? Why don't I strap on my focus helmet and squeeze down into a focus cannon and fire off into focus land, where focuses grow on focusies?!

To the tune of You Are My Sunshine:

She is my bb
She’s the best bb
And she is pretty
And she’s a gay

These are the songs we sing each other and I find them adorable and hilarious. 😍🥰

Sorry, I don't make the rules.

After 6 days in the and on , I’ve got to admit, I absolutely love it here! This feels like what the internet was meant to be. 💜

Hey people on and :

Do you ?

If you do, what has your mileage been?
What are your arguments for or against?

WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been...

Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.

I missed Denver DevOps Days this year and as my first year not being an organizer, that makes me sad

My partner and I got a new ride and we’ve got her all decked out and ready for car this summer. Took her out last weekend and can’t wait to go again!

She needs a name though… any ideas?

My season ended early because of a knee injury and resulting surgery, I ABSOLUTELY CAN’T WAIT until next season

Today I'm thinking that the first time I was called a pedophile merely for being trans was the same day (and from the same people) that I first was called slurs that were direct quotes of a comedian’s special that just came out. This was 2019.

Media figures normalize hate.
