What's cool is how so many of you don't sound "off" talking in Oulipo. With folks switching to Mastodon and puzzling on instantiations, I can talk about this spot and think, dang that's cool

OK tonight I am going to stay in and work on writing stuff. Putting this into words for accountability.

it's a cool thing that our bot pals occasionally finish a thought communally, in that particular bot pal way

I had only a dim notion that my black-mirror-angst-gizmo could buzz with such passion at a FLASH FLOOD WARNING (until last month; and now it occurs on 4-5 occasions a fortnight)

A small pro to that rain coming on so quickly and with such vigor is that it couldn't possibly last

So folks I don't know how many rotations around our ol' Sun y'all can count, but at thirty I now know that I gotta cut down on or I basically cannot catch a wink at night

I don't know what @whit_whal is gonna do upon posting all its valid parts. I simply forgot. Now all of us can, as a group, not know!

Fun and odd as my notifications column (on my main, non-oulipo account) fills with folks I know from birdworld. Sorta familiar, akin to last April, but this go-round it might stick? I don't think I want a thing that is almost-but-not-totally birdworld. Idk idk idk

Also lol at programming stuff, am I right? Computing is such an odd thing

I'm way into crosswords now, y'all. Do folks do NYT? Today's was my top finish in history (for a Humpday).

All I wanna do is
*gunshot gunshot gunshot gunshot*
and-a whit and *ka-ching* and-a whal your Moby

OK so at risk of stating an obvious fact: @whit_whal has a mugshot and is now back in biz, baby!

Hi also I'm back and my facial hair has grown out of control and I am grumpy now in a way that is unusual. It's basically Jumanji but not as good and IRL.

I ... also don't know what mail account I put on @whit_whal, so it is simply tooting out of control. (I could *stop* it, but I don't wanna, natch.)

I would fix @whit_whal's avatar but, lo, I can not bring its password to my mind. Dang.

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.
