Question of today is: Where do we go from here?

And it's a very good question.

so, what's going on at midnight

I have spoken the words of power. I have invoked the ancient covenant and kept with the old ways, but my great hunger remains unsatisfied.

Again, I begin the chant, "happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you..."

My invocation is met with silent still air. No birthday cake materializes. What have I done to be so forsaken? What crime have I committed against the Old Ones?

I really dig the fur pattern. I like Dutch markings on rabbits myself, and it looks great for actual rabbits, but anthro look kinda awkward. This evokes that feeling, but doesn't look awkward.

so what's easier to set up

pleroma or mastodon

OK, so, I'm about a decade older than you, Andrew: I taught myself QBasic in the mid 90s, got online late 90s, never really looked back.

First, I want to say this: older computer systems - considered as systems - were generally more capable.

But to be clear, they were limited in use for those who didn't take an interest in learning them. I'm talking about things that weren't Windows 3.1+.

I have a really good memory for customers. If there's a regular at my store, chances are I know them by sight and name. But I'm very quiet and don't often use names even for friends/family. I just talk in their direction.

But I noticed people assume I don't know them. Even if I see them every day. And then they feel like I don't care, I'm just the person between them and their meds.

So I started greeting everyone I know by name this week. And WOW. I did not realize how much that meant to people, but apparently it's a lot and it completely turns those interactions around.

And I feel really good about it. It's nice making people smile a little.

I don't know what all is going on right now. I know some things, but I'm not connected to any of the offline happenings, so all I know is what I see...

but a lot of my friends seem to really need a hug and to be held for a while and to just cry...

I'm very sorry that you're in pain right now, and that you feel isolated and alone. I'm sorry that your depression is winning. I'm sorry that your heart is aching. I'm sorry that I can't do more than post words on a screen, and that I can't physically hold you (if wanted or appropriate).

You are still important and worthy of love.

The world is full of some very nasty people, and some good folks but they aren't the issue, right now.

I'm sorry you are hurting.

i went to a rave once. at the Empire, an old movie theatre playing cyberpunk animation on a loop, serving no alcohol so teens could come. it was the first time i was surrounded by genuinely kind people. i only remember one person clearly, a sweet boy named christian. we promised to see each other at the following week's show.

next week, the theatre was dark and empty, as if it had been that way for years.

sometimes i wonder if i dreamt the whole thing.
