Pinned toot

Dear ,

FYI I've created a new account on megadon.net :anidab_left: @evelynyap :anidab_right: in case mastodon.cloud goes poof.

I've been here since August 2018 and I picked it thinking it'd be one of the more stable , but... for the past couple of years it's just been weird.

@TheAdmin was never responsive -- even after the instance changed owners.

And now @pfx predicts may block it -- probably due to @TheAdmin not acting on creepy peeps. 🙄 *sigh*

After Monday's haircut I wasn't planning on going out again till August was over. But yesterday my brother saw and told me that the car had one very flat tire. Can't just leave it like that. And so out I went again today.

Mission accomplished.

And since I'm out already... Might as well buy some cheese, bread and pajamas too. 🤪

Slowly moving over to megadon.net...

Haven't "moved" my followers from mastodon.cloud to megadon.net yet. Pretty sure that's irreversible. Maybe tomorrow. Taking it slow. I will start to actively use megadon.net after this...

It's good that I have a copy of my and on my own personal . :blobcatpeek: hehe

I tried exporting the list of 83 people I from this mastodon.cloud account and importing it to a new account megadon.net ... but only 73 of my followed people got imported. 😕 Tried a second time. Same same. 😶

This is an old re-toot, slightly edited:

I'm muting 🙊 and blocking 🙈 some tooters. It's my way of weeding out useless stuff to clean up the I see:
❌ bots that toot only nonsense;
❌ accounts that exclusively toot in a language that is totally alien to me;
❌ accounts that mainly toot ;
❌ accounts by hopelessly angry, hyper vulgar, super offensive peeps (many out there are tolerable, but some are just lost causes).


The power is yours. 😉

I didn't get the #job. #employment #work 

Goodness. What's wrong with me. I can't even get a part-time as an online English tutor! :blobnotlike: At least they told me and didn't leave me hanging. :asuna_but:

Reason given: "the upper management decided to go for somebody with teaching experience."

But I've done seminars and lectures.
3 lectures at a university!! :blobnerd:

I think it's because when asked if I would sing and dance for the kid/s, I was honest and said I won't be dancing. 😜

Got on online job interview... happening in about 35 minutes. ⌛

I think I'm ready. :awesome:

Am I? :blobcatpeek:

This is too funny. :anidab_right: I wish I'd thought of shooting a time lapse of my wilting. :blobawkward:

At the moment, this is what's left of it. :blobcatpeek: These were the smallest of all the leaves and have survived the longest. I can see the tip of the leaf on the left starting to turn brown. *sigh* C'est la vie. :blobidk:

QUESTION: So because of root rot, does this mean the is contaminated and cannot be used anymore? :blobnerd:

And now, the long overdue:

I went out Wednesday for the first time since our started. People talk about how they'd get to the supermarket, queue as early as 8 or 9AM, and get home late in the afternoon because just waiting to get in took hours.

I guess they live in places with plenty of panicky people. 🤔

I left home 8:30-ish and got back in time for lunch. :awesome:

Don't laugh. 😶 #plantcare #quarantine #stayhome 

Progress report: No improvement. It looks like my will be dying soon.

I know, I know. That's NOT a . :blobcatpeek: But that's the brightest portable light I have to keep close to my . Besides, someone said somewhere on the internet that LED light could* do some good, just not as good as a proper grow light.

Will it recover?
I don't know.
If it doesn't I'll bury it under my next . 😜

Shall I pull the plug? 🤔

Gotta love . :blobheartcat:

So many kind people generous with their time, tips, expertise... or even just reactions and comments. :drake_like:

Thanks to all who took the time to enlighten me and educate me about . Truly appreciate it. 🙏

My has become like my little . Can't keep a four-legged furry, unfortunately. Would love a large doggie. But that'd be an even bigger responsibility. Will stick with this little for now. :hehehe:

I think my #jadeplant is about to die on me. Really. Soon. 

Today it got a bit of sun in the car when I went for a short drive for groceries -- after being indoors 12 days. Might be its last.

The tiny leaf deteriorated really quickly. I noticed it looking dry and darkened yesterday. This evening, it's totally wilted, and the larger ones are suddenly looking rather brown. 😶

If it dies, it'll be a sad time of for me.

#plants #jadeplant #moneytree #plantcare 

Very strange. 🙄

So it was in the car 3 days, with sun, and started looking very wrinkled.

I watered it, 4 days in a row, but left it in the car. Still very wrinkled. 😕

Then I brought it indoors. No direct sun coming through my window, only some reflected light.

Because we're on , I and my little plant stayed indoors. I watered it daily, for 10 days.

Now it looks smooth and healthy. 😎

A light- and heat-sensitive succulent??! :blob_confused:

☝️ People take so lightly, even participating in it by passing it on, and not even feeling sorry when they later learn it's not true and that they've been helping spread lies.
