I tooted this three months ago, might be worth a redo:
"Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

Welcome, new Mastodon arrivals!
A suggestion for attracting new friends and acquaintances: toot a self-introduction with roughly seven hashtagged interests or as many as you want. Hashtag 'introduction' or 'introductions.'

Likewise, you can search for likely people who share fellowship in your community by searching for hashtagged interests.


I'm migrating to christyotwisty at tilde dot zone. I'm grateful for the 3+ years I've been here, I am more into conversation than cohabiting with bots and promoters -- that's what is for.

I'm the last English-language non-bot non-advertising account on, aren't I?

My son's graduating class had commencement ceremony on Monday.
both of us were unaware of this until Tuesday.
I am relieved I learned too late, i would have felt sad about declining to attend.

7 new books to read, can only poll four:
which should I start with?

I request aid in cracking a -sequence cipher and shedding light on a 'Theory of Everything' number so large my Python program worked for six hours to factor it into primes.

Both problems are for puzzles. Can't math, can't sing, can solve a little.

If accumulated frustrations with depending on unreliable and unresponsive people drove you nearly to self-harm and madness, what pulled you back from the point of no return?

made Tomato and Zucchini soup, as i do when my body asks for calm, alkaline balance and recovery: it has celery, green beans, and onions in it too.

Cannot tell if I'm spoiled, needy, or deprived. if i weren't in my cruel and peculiar circumstance with my current yearns and pines, I'd say I was spoiled or needy.

My family awaiting grocery delivery like it's a supply dropoff by a plane to our 'remote' location. @solderpunk is as unreachable for you as it is for me? i had hoped to reject some account registrations this am -- always helps my mood

Is knowing the difference between malice and incompetence an inherent aptitude, or is it learned? Have you lived through a government both malicious ans incompetent, that made you think you could no longer or never know the difference between incompetence and malice?

"Nurse of the Yukon" Part Two 

in front of a 4x4 SUV, 89.5346 metres away from the turboprop was a heavily bundled figure, waving a flashlight in large sweeping arcs.
Nurse Figueroa took ungainly steps toward the figure. The pilot followed behind, pulling a cart loaded with three cases.
"What hospital are you from?" she yelled to the figure.
"Ang ulo ni Walrus ay hinampas ng club ng Canada Hospital, a tenant on unceded land of DlΓΉlΕ«buhuhu!"
"Yep! That's my gig!" Nurse Figueroa hollered.

my short story: "Nurse of the Yukon" 

Nurse Figueroa emerged from the turboprop into a bracing wind, her nostril hairs gathering icicles from her first breath of DlΓΉlΕ«buhuhu. She clutched her full-length fox tightly around her. It was 2:56 pm, and dark.
"Ye cats! My nipples are ice cubes! This better be a good job or I'm gonna smite the polar bears with bedpans!"

Jeez, tons of sirens. It's not 19h00m so I don't know what the big deal is. Do sirens come out for National Physicians' Day? Are the RCMP luring me out to bust me for breaking quarantine?
