I haven’t been using my instance too much, but for what it’s worth, @mastohost continues to be a stellar host for those in need of such services.

Every time someone says “Merry Christmas” to me:

Inner voice: Wait. Don’t they know I’m Jewish? I’m sure I told them. Or maybe I didn’t? That’s not a nice thing to say if they knew. Or maybe they think I’m one of those Jews that celebrate Christmas. Do I look like one of those? Or maybe it’s that I don’t look Jewish at all! Who am I kidding, I look like a rabbi. I wonder if Rabbi Kaplan is still alive. I don’t think so. Oh shit it’s been too long and I haven’t said anyth—

Outer voice: You too!

You can’t go home again, but you can chat about your workplace from 15 years ago with your driver from the airport, who works there part time.

You know how Dorian Gray safeguards his painting?

You know how Scrooge McDuck protects his number one dime?

You know how Sméagol cherishes the One Ring?

Thats how I want app developers to feel about my scroll position in Mastodon apps.

Today on a conference call I told a group of five people we shouldn’t try to eat the whole elephant and they had no idea what I meant.
