Standing next to mum watching a squirrel on the deck eating an apple I put out yesterday.

Mum: "do they eat apples?"

Me: "well, yeah...I mean, he's literally eating it right now"

Mum: "well, I wasn't sure they did"

Me: "Mum, they eat McDonald's fries what makes you think they wouldn't eat an apple" ๐Ÿ˜‚

Another nail in my twitter coffin. My account has been locked for selling counterfeit goods... for a tweet mentioning no goods, linking a tweet mentioning no goods (from an "official" account no less)

Funny conversation with the kiddo:

Me: "Finn, can you get your pajamas on before you start playing that game?"
Finn: *gets up and gets pj's on*
Me: "That was very good. You didn't complain or argue you just did it. I think Santa was watching that"
Finn: "He waa watching me just now? When I waa naked ๐Ÿ˜ณ?!?"

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’…

Me: "well when I say he was *watching* it's more like he gets a *sense* or a feeling when someone does something good."

Me: *phew* I think I dodged that ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚

Just putting this out there to support #BlackMastodon since #BlackTwitter needs a new home... โœŠ๐Ÿพ

Guys, @kurzgesagt is on here! I love and my son does too. He begs to watch a video at bedtime. Some of the best out there. And....I love that duck ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ˜

Damn...someone just drove a car into the right near my house. Multiple injuries. I was just at yesterday - it's a small store and it's so busy at this time of year. Really not good. Hoping that there are no fatalities. This is very shocking.

The single best thing written on endemicity & #COVID is by @ariskatzourakis from last January.

"Thinking that endemicity is both mild and inevitable is more than wrong, it is dangerous: it sets humanity up for many more years of disease, including unpredictable waves of outbreaks. It is more productive to consider how bad things could get if we keep giving the virus opportunities to outwit us. Then we might do more to ensure that this does not happen."

Meet Eugen Rotchko (@Gargron), founder of @Mastodon, who just got a profile in TIME magazine. I encourage you to really read the entire excellent interview, bc not only will you learn more about the ethos behind Mastodon, but you can also hear what itโ€™s like for an intelligent human being to talk about social media.
