guarding as usual that standard institution (for nix, mind). constant calls from horny public: is it for fucking? my man, id go for it if i could, but for this cockblocking policy

Brought to you by my mind as I hum Link-songs loudly to our baby as I stomp about to assist it with going unconscious (as in, zzz).

Tidying Up With Koji Kondo: throw out anything that won’t play Saria’s Song as you pick it up.

@starlit Sorry for phrasing that poorly – my baby (#2) is four months or so (with a tiny tooth now!), but just was in a good mood today is all.

A happy baby day – I stan baby-toting fabric ring slings. Trying at organising all my situation with OmniFocus (not my first try) and Kourosh Dini's accompanying book (which is good, I say). Adding a 'post to oulipo.social' task, coming up again daily – if I'm about a bit, that's why.

@jackbaty Apropos your TiddlyWikiing, I’m coming around to thinking that (for Mac info via RSS) MJ Tsai is all you (that is, I) want. (And DF—that famously gray blog—also, p’haps.)

@ranjit Okay, sold…

A quandary: for this to act as main I must follow folks from various Mastodons… but I don’t want to junk up my ‘babbling brook’ of posts I’m imbibing with non-Oulipo info (that glyph, ya know)… what to do? Following but muting?

@ojahnn DFW (bandanna jock writing man) is angrily adamant that you can’t distinguish thought from saying of it - good thinking writ poorly is bad thinking, is his dictum. I sort of nod along, but (nowadays) a bit guiltily…

@ojahnn Yah, I’m cognisant of this habit in my thinking as troubling, and unfair to many folks. Happily, I do not go about policing grammatical (and similar) shortcomings – particularly in www-land! – as I got rid of that inclination a ways back. Bad thinkings-back on Hard-To-Spot Mountain bot, and humans insisting on acting akin to it, to show off ‘smarts’… 🙄

Not knowing what to do with this (original) notion of my own, I just… hang out in mainly this spot, for now…

@ranjit Zombocom I don’t know? Arguably twttr, back in its day, haha…

… but for chris simpsons artist, and dril too. Only ironically, as schtick. That’s okay?

Our oulipo.social attracts only folks who accord to words a significant import, mulling and choosing judiciously – so no typos (or not many). Unfair probably, but I think not as highly of folks on FB (&c.) flouting dictionary and grammar book both.

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.
