More of my daughter's artwork. She drew me this cute little mastodon to use promoting my instance. Still figuring out how much she wants me to pay her for it.
Admins, if you use this artwork, be sure to boost this toot!
I'm never sure WHAT to write in #introductions, but here goes!
I'm Tim. If you see "thraeryn" on the net, it's either me or someone I used to know. (It's almost always me.)
I'm red. I'm very red. In fact, I'm #AllRedEverywhere. I'm the Embodiment of RED.
Hi! I'm @thraeryn, the admin of thraeryn.net. I hope you'll be able to have real conversations and form real friendships with other Mastodon users here, both locally and in the wider fediverse.
If you see something, say something. Each and every toot has a "Report" feature. I hope users will be able to toot harassment-free, so I'll be watching.
Mastodon's Complicated Relationship with Queer Activism, or, Why You Shouldn't Support Gargron
I'm beginning to peel from a sunburn acquired last weekend.
The upshot: I spend the next week or so eating myself.
Damn. My muscles still feel loose and a little rubbery after all the work we did today.
Tomorrow seems like it'll be Soreness Central. I'll probably be begging for yoga on Friday.
Tacos were ordered. 👍🏼
I'm so tired.
I hoped to have a lazy day after yoga. Instead, I moved fallen tree limbs.
More work today clearing out a bunch of stuff for donation or trash.
I'm pretty wiped, somewhat unexpectedly so. I should really eat lunch.
I will be starting the upgrade of all Masto.host hosted instances to v2.4.2
Please expect a couple of minutes of downtime.
Let me know if you run into any issues.
It's apparently time to head to bed and get all my coughing done for the day? G'night.
Oh, this little boy on this episode of "Queer Eye". I'm glad some kind-hearted, really together people got hold of him with the intention of bringing him out of his present and hopefully setting him up for his future.
Oh my goodness, but he's such a BAYBEEEEEE.

I'm really excited to leave Facebook on Friday. I'm not surprised, or even shocked, when my great friends have terrible family members who drive by my friends' lovely posts with terrible takes.
I'm disappointed each time, of course, and my soul's river has a strong undercurrent of wishing everyone over 60 would kick off in their sleep tonight.
It'll be so nice to see so much less of all that.

You have to change it up to "mongols executions rugs blood" to find a result that mentions Tengrism and how Tengri didn't want to see royal blood spilled, Eje didn't want royal blood spilled on her.
Instead of asking about a specific religion, you have to ask about a generalized people, all of whom were at least free to embrace other religious practices within the bounds of Tengrism; some of whom probably left Tengrism behind entirely in favor of another spiritual answer.

Those first two words? Naaaaaaaaaah, they don't have any additional weight for being the first and second terms in the search; not when so many young people are searching shit like "y dik wart pop pee juice". (Sounds like a blister to me, kid, and I don't want to know how you got it.)

You know what's surprisingly difficult? Trying to search Google for the whole "why did followers of Tengrism sometimes wrap folks they were going to execute in large rugs" thing. "tengrism killings blood carpets" - note the first two words - produces a lot of results about removing bloodstains from carpets, either DIY or through a hired service. (1)
Sink failure for tonight. I think I can fix it tomorrow; I don't have the oomph right now.
Also, as much as I love our living in this house, I will never, ever forgive its former owners for every shitty, fifty-years-old-and-no-longer-the-standard thing I have to fix.
We're making progress with the sink. V is my invaluable DIY partner. We may get this done.
