I forgot I had this account. Hi. 👋

I think I want a nap. Still not fully past my cold symptoms.

I'm at a training thing for work for improving at "managing" in MLB today. Bit dry, but it's a good cohort that I'm working with.

Octopussy

My brain is trying to find lipograms sans Glyph V in my mail, old bird toots, books... things that most probably won't follow this constraint. Mind-boggling.

Sword-poking was grand fun last night, though hard work physically. This morning, my mind is glowing —but not so much my body!

And now, off to don a mask and tough cotton coat and hit folk with a sword — bit not with a mind to act out combat from history. It's an Olympic sport!

finding words trickling back from oulipo into normal thoughts and vocabulary. most visibly: "folks". it's good! "y'all" is too much (i'm from London, y'know), but a word with no man-vs-woman implications is vital.

A followup task: Writing toots that don't scan as so crusty with synonyms; rightfully, oulipo writing should aim for simplicity and a natural flow.

And now I'm idling away my day by thinking about writing oulipo, and not doing work writing css. Poor form, Will.

I am particularly bad at contriving solutions to common glyphwords without circumlocution.

But what to call that hoard of icons at top right, for symbolising words or thoughts — Pictograph? Moodglyph? Would I act wrongly to call it "moji"?

It is so difficult to stop my digits slipping onto that naughty glyph. Salutations, oulipians, with this first toot.

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.
