Good morning! Here is a photo I took of an Amsterdam canal with a pinhole camera.

Good morning, I hope that Keith Haring would endorse my fridge magnet placement.

Good morning, here is a wood stove-top hotdog cooker that my grandfather made [lewd]

good morning, this was attached to my new tv – it will never cease to delight me how america hedges its bets that quebec might be its own country someday

it will also never cease to amaze me how the same concepts expressed in english take twice as much text to express in french. it's a beautiful language but it's quite verbose and complicated don't @ me :dont_at_me:

I took french immersion in school so I ostensibly can speak french, but only canadian french, and not even the good canadian french (je viens de l'acadie, look it up, d'ac) plus the school never focused on proper pronunciation, so I sound awful. I've tried conversing in french in four french-speaking countries and in most cases, people just switch to english :\ it feels awful so I don't really bother trying anymore

but at least I can read french toots, so it's not all bad 🤗

actually this reminds me a lot of the french I see on mastodon...
