I guess I should do one of those #introductions.
I'm a writer and poet. My blog is 15 years old. I'm a web designer and copyediter. I did a TEDx talk about the power of personal narrative. I've run a gratitude group for 8 years. I have 4 cats, but I only like them 2 at a time, because cats are terrible. I'll never forget that I rubbed a semi-famous person's belly instead of shaking their hand. I apparently love dying of embarrassment forever.
@schmutzie Did you mistake the semi-famous person for a cat? A belly rub as a greeting is... daring. Novel. Disruptive even. Now I want to try it!
@KittyHannahEden He grinned at me like this was a terribly endearing weirdness, so it worked?
@schmutzie I might have to try this for myself sometime. I can’t help but wonder what went through your mind at the time though. This is quite the extraordinary greeting. 😬
@KittyHannahEden Literally nothing. I didn't even realize I was doing it until he looked down at my hand and grinned at me.
@schmutzie This. Is. Amazing.
@schmutzie Cats are indeed terrible.
Space alien cats particularly so.
@schmutzie Gratitude group? I'd love to hear more about that, if you feel like saying anything more.
@skiring Sure! I started it nearly 9 years ago as a separate social network hosted on Ning, but it's since moved to Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/GraceInSmallThings/. You're welcome to check it out.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
