@somarasu Out at karaoke with two friends and a bunch of new people I'm tryna make friends 🤙

Aaaaaaand they'll either call my song, or I'll close out and sang at home 😅

I played a bunch of this afternoon, and really enjoyed it.

Maybe I'll be able to get back to next month.

@naugeleh

Rough. I love my FiveFingers, wear them regularly, and even my toughened-up feet would likely be aching after seven miles!

I would like to (dis)prove something my transphobic father said.
#transgender people, did you choose a name that’s a diminutive of or sounds like your deadname?
Preferably boost for a larger sample size.

today's outing (food mention) 

THE PLAN: Hit a store, buy a toilet fill valve, hit a fast food place, get a taco

THE REALITY: When I was almost to the correct aisle for my item, an employee informed everyone (via loudspeaker) that they were only accepting cash or the store's credit card.

I had neither, so I went and got TWO tacos.

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

@naln1 My son chose first and middle names that sound nothing like his birth name.

One is the name of a cartoon character from a late 80s/early 90s show. He just likes the sound of the other name.

Imagine. Naming yourself and choosing names you enjoy hearing. Ludicrous, that's what that is. (sarcasm)

@sophia@glitterkitten.co.uk KALI

Mostly for the "😳. Oh." reactions

food prep 

I saw someone fine-dice an onion today in a video, using this method (though not incredibly well): youtube.com/watch?v=UBj9H6z6Ux

Like, in the video, Chef White turns an onion into granules. I just diced smaller than I've done before.

There's such an immediate difference in the fragrance. The smaller the dice, the greater the chance for the onion to release all those pleasant smells; you can practically taste it in the air.

If I wanted my bits as tiny as Chef White's, I'd just blend it 😅

Morbius 

It's fine. It's junk sci-fi action. Things that seem like plot points get dropped. The rules aren't consistent, with only the barest of implied explanations.

I didn't go in expecting "Death on the Nile" or anything. I got about what I expected to get, and nothing made me so angry I had to stop watching.

Morbius 

Just watched it, bc why not 🤷‍♂️

One of my biggest takeaways: "Daaaaaamn, that was Tyrese?"

@bonzoesc Oh! I have heard that group's name in the past from folks with wildly differing opinions!

@bonzoesc I'll probably forget about it tomorrow,

but for tonight, I'm stuck on it, mostly bc the links are so clear and immediate in my mind, and I'm baffled that others don't make the same connections

@bonzoesc It works once somebody smartens you up, tho, right? "Shitty foam shoes with inexplicable holes" like, defines Crocs in most minds, I'd imagine

"After voting down the bill, designed to get baby formula back on shelves, several Republican and a few Democratic lawmakers were seen wearing homemade Crocs on the Senate floor"

Show thread

It means "they shot themselves in the foot so many times, their shoes are full of holes," dammit

Show thread

I'm not giving up on this phrase

"My man does this EVERY TIME he gets a big break; he got a whole RACK of homemade Crocs in his closet"

"She'd still be working here if she hadn't insisted on blowing it all on homemade Crocs"

Show thread

Tell me if
1) you get this turn of phrase
and
2) find it amusing?

"She had every shot she deserved, and spent 'em all on creating some homemade Crocs."
