Pinned toot

Hi! I'm @thraeryn, the admin of 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.

Where my Saturday night crew at? Now that I had some time to actually chill, I'm up for interaction. (Of course.)

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? And if not now, when?

I took Santa pictures with maybe twenty dogs and two cats.

(Every year, has an all-Santa re-enactment of the Battle of Pearl Harbor. FYI.)

Dang. I had to do some serious spot cleaning on my suit.

As V pointed out, I battled the Japanese forces at Pearl Harbor at least once in the suit without washing it after.

Oh. Yeah. Oops.

✅ help friend
✅ hug puppers
✅ make people happy (hopefully)
are the orders of the day. Wish me luck!

A little part of me wishes I'd said "sorry, no" so I could have a lazy Saturday.

Another part of me realizes that, without saying "yes" sometimes, I'll never have as many wild stories as Harlan. Whatever stick that man is measured by, one must admit that he lived an eventful life.

Today, I help a friend by dressing as Santa and taking pictures with puppers.

I just tried navigating GNOME exclusively with a screen reader and I am sadly not surprised to see that it is effectively impossible.

I can't even properly select categories in the Settings app - y'know the central component for tweaking accessibility parameters.

I wonder what in the heck was so draining today. It might be the cold.

Listen, I understand that parts of the world need to be cold; I don't want to live in those places.

"... You say you love your children above all else, and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes.


We have not come here to beg world leaders to care. You have ignored us in the past, and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses, and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people. Thank you."
