I guess I should do one of those .

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.

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
