Does #RoCur culture exist on Mastodon? BeingTokyo was a cool account. Could it work here?

A mastodon bot that replies to every single post posted by Mastodon Twitter Crossposter with "thanks for that".

Had a quick productive (?) encouraging video chat with @Makkoruden and that was a nice way to start the day and break the monotony of freelance WFH translution life.

I have surgical experience. Haven't performed neurosurgery, but I suppose if paleolithic shamans could manage it, I most likely can, too.

When life gives you lemons, give the lemons back. Why were the lemons free? Is something wrong with the lemons? Are the lemons haunted? Be suspicious of the lemons.

Kirkjufellfoss, #Iceland ๐ŸŒˆ

I left Reykjavik early morning and headed 3 hours north to the Snรฆfellsnes Peninsula to shoot Kirkjufell.
We arrived at the famous peak. It was a downpour. My heart sank. Exhausted and still to early to go eat dinner, I took a nap in the car for โ€œa few minutes.โ€ A few minutes turned into an hour.
As I slept, the sun had come out behind me and woke me up. I turned and looked at Kirkjufell. My jaw dropped. Rainbow over Kirkjufell!
