I'm listening to Christmas music, putting up and decorating my Christmas tree, and talking to my book club about a book about dead bodies.

I'm here for this.

Every time I come home, all four of our cats come running from wherever they are and surround me. I have to sit on the floor and spend 5 minutes petting them before they will let me even put my things down.

Sorry for not answering your text; it was buried in the pile of Black Friday promo texts from EVERY BRAND ON THE PLANET.

Looking for a good quality and kind of inexpensive . Really would prefer something under $300, but I know you get what you pay for.
Anyone have any recommendations?
Single floor primarily carpeted apartment. Don't care about how loud it is.
We have 4 cats, and both me and my roommate have super long hair that we shed like crazy.

Points if it comes with a mostly Voiceover accessible app.

If you're like me, then you were really happy to learn about Mastodon's enthusiastic support for image descriptions, and you were eager to join in.

Then you went to actually write something and realized you have no idea how to present visual info in a way that is helpful/enjoyable to those who are #VisuallyImpaired or #Blind.

I found this guide really informative: https://uxdesign.cc/how-to-write-an-image-description-2f30d3bf5546

Post-viral Edit: Don't forget to give the author some love on medium. They did the work!

I can achieve anything I put my mind to unless it’s too hard or boring.

I forget how nice it is to do food prep with actually good, sharp knives until I cookat my parent's house. One of these days I will upgrade mine, but today is not that day.

Apparently I'm on a TJR kick because I finished The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo again yesterday and am now rereading Daisy Jones and the Six. Such an incredible storyteller, even if I didn't care for her latest book as much as others.

Me: Oh problem, definitely

Them: That wasn’t…it was a rhetorica—

Me: I have some ideas on how to make the problem even funnier than it is

exam grades, procrastination, etc. 

Got a 99% on a midterm today, which is great, but I'm progressively more and more frustrated with my ability to do very well when I apply myself and my incredibly difficult time actually applying myself. It's exhausting to know I can do well but still having some mental block that stops me from starting/finishing projects. This was my mom's frustration with me as a kid, and I really get why now 😂

Him: You can't just lay in there
Me: And why not? It's comfy
Him: Because it's not yours
Me: Finders keepers
Him: [sighs] Do I really need to explain graves to you again?

Finding your people on Mastodon feels a lot like the sigh of relief you would breathe after realizing they made it safely out of a structure fire.

Me: Wanna take this upstairs?

Her: Mhm, but you should know it's my first time...

Me: Don't worry, upstairs is just like the downstairs, only higher

A fun, happy little Mastodon/Hometown instance.
