I had planned to not visit Mastodon today, but I can't log on to one site in which I check my email and make most of my #gopher posts.
I dreamed of #DorisDay: she looked 40 years younger than her 96-year-old self. My aunt in the #dream received a long reply letter from Doris, with one funny bit about Doris arguing with Martin Landau. I had written to Miss Day and received a hand-written letter in return, which inspired my aunt to write.

As you settle into Mastodon, be sure to learn the lingo:
- "toot": a tweet
- "tusking": starting a pointless fight with another user
- "woolly": going viral, as in "wow, that toot really went woolly"
- "extinction event": when a whole instance goes down

a major Mediterranean diet study that everyone loves to quote has been retracted.
it turns out the study wasn't quite as random as they claimed. and even when accounting for this error and bias, people following a Mediterranean diet did have some health benefits, but these benefits were not caused by the diet itself.

#introduction I am a 27yo #retail worker/corporate slave from #Georgia. I constantly fantasize about the #apocalypse but also love #reading #fantasy, #gaming, and #cooking. When the planets align and certain #eldritchsigils are invoked, I have been known to spontaneously write #fiction.
I listen to a lot of #music, but unfortunately most of it is peak white cishet guy stuff. I love black #tea and #craftbeer. #BobRoss helps me sleep at night. I use #twitter a lot to heckle local politicians. ✌️
Hi all. Here's my #introduction. I left twitter and most other sites. Don't know for how long, but in the meanwhile I'll be here. I'm a writer currently 70% into my first novel. I have a love/hate relationship with videogames. WHM on FFIX. Listen to a ton of #music. Grey-A and tired. Also I do PR and UI/UX design as my job.
Hope we can be friends.

"It often feels as if I'm not here, that I'm a figment of my own imagination. There are days when I feel so lightly connected to the earth that the threads that tether me to the planet are gossamer thin, spun sugar."
