Good morning, I got a dino plant last night and itโ€™s gorgeous! I took photos of it rehydrating itself, like the Trisolarans!

Good morning, you know when youโ€™re petting a cat and they donโ€™t quite want to be pet right now? [eye contact]

good morning, my hackathon project's todo list is looking pretty good!

Not much to the readme but the code is here if you're keen: github.com/ashfurrow/buggy

good morning, I'm sorely tempted to snip off and steal a cutting of this plant from work but Stealing Plants Is Wrong.

Good mornin, and happy American Thanksgiving. Please enjoy the Americansโ€™ โ€œwtf?โ€ reactions to the the phrase โ€œAmerican Thanksgivingโ€ โ€“ I look forward to it every year.

good morning [cw an american apologizing to all of canada, and a canadian not accepting that apology]

Good morning. A bookcase I bought came with a damaged shelf and instead of just replacing the shelf, the company gave me a second bookcase, so I LEGOโ€™d them together into one super-tall bookcase. mastodon.technology/media/jexI

@ashfurrow Just tape one back on after your graft takes. :-P

@ashfurrow I think it's called "Native American Genocide Day"

@ashfurrow a friend living in Japan reminds me it is also Japanese Labor Thanksgiving (11/23) right now, incidentally

@ashfurrow You always respond to the last one, makes me wonder if you are trying to break something with a giant thread. :-P

That table is kind of neat.

@ashfurrow Impressive but you will get tired of putting stuff back on the top shelves that your cat(s) knock off.

@ashfurrow wow, that wallpaper of yours is really cool and wise! With that tiling they support the super wide 1024x600 displays!

@ashfurrow Nice! My game of choice was always pinball - fond memories of playing that

@selea I don't even know! We got it while it was much bigger, and it died back because we forgot to water it :( It seems similar to a "nerve plant", which is really sensitive to hydration I guess!

@AskChip I'm hoping it can avoid the Great Compost Heap in the Sky but we'll see ๐Ÿ™ƒ

@ashfurrow Actually, wood ash is a natural mineral concentrate that purifies the soil. Tobacco ash is actually quite amazing if you can get it, it's a concentrate of the premium fertilizers tobacco is fertilized with and can nearly bring back a dead plant.

@AskChip oh neat! that makes sense. I'm not a smoker, but maybe I can ask at work...

@ashfurrow No.

Also you're probably going to give the โ€œthreadingโ€ an interesting stress test after a while if you keep going

@ashfurrow The weakerthans are great, but maybe you need to branch out a bit? Maybe even listen to a band not from Winnipeg? Crazy talk, I know.

@ashfurrow How about Wintersleep? Also from Canada, also start with W. Might take a bit to get used to after a steady diet of folk-rock.

@bremner there is also, I should mention, quite a long tail of other, non-Winnipeg artists on there :)

@bremner Iโ€™ll have you know that Jim Bryson is from Ottawa!

I do need to branch out though. Mostly itโ€™s been due to me learning guitar, and many of John K Samsonโ€™s songs. A kind of feedback loop I think. Right now, Iโ€™m listening to a lot of his older punk stuff from Propagandhi.

So yeah, time to branch out ๐Ÿ˜…
