Of comics I'm following:
* A Victorian woodcut comic has run an almost unchanging quip for 11 strips in a row, with no stop in sight.
* By contrast, a stick-drawing fantasy comic brought back a motif from its past...in 2003! 1133 strips ago!

So much rhinitis, probably thanks to plants. Drugs only go so far in controlling my sinus output. Unusually high amounts of rain bring copious irritating plant parts to flight.

Okay so @xor made a bot (@whit_whal) that posts bits of Moby Dick that don't have the letter "e" to oulipo.social.

Of course, I had to make a version for dolphin.town that only posts the letter "e" from Moby Dick.


See that first lowercase "e" in the screen cap? That's the "e" in "me" in "Call me Ishmael" Possibly the most famous "e" in all of literature. mastodon.social/media/TXagKq3w

@slutsky I was just trying to start a list with famous musicians across kinds of music. Bands? Many with an invalid first word, but...
* Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young (!)
* Boston
* Kansas
* Alabama
* U2
* Los Lobos
* NWA (?)
* Wu-Tang Clan

I find writing lipogrammatic bug accounts particularly difficult.

@tully This catalog of lists of sign and digit strings has a word for it, plus citations. oeis.org/A006933

Tonight I did go to a ritual of Judaism with a haggadah and non-trayf food. A child who has had two trips around our sun was happy company. Most important to him? Trucks.

Almost 4:00 pm. Cat alarm is going off. Again.

Cat: yowl yowl yowl yowl yowl
Sculpin: Cat, what is your situation?
Cat: yowl yowl yowl yowl
Sculpin: What is this about?
Cat: yowl yowl yowl yowl
Sculpin: Mad that Josh is still at work?
Cat: yowl yowl yowl yowl
Cat: *PURR*

Okay, cat. You win. Don't know what you won, but you win. Gold star for absurd daily howling.

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
