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

you're thinking "no one here has bumper stickers" and yeah, they're less common, but!

that just means that the bumper stickers you _do_ see are much much more potent

yes Iโ€™ve listened to the problematic podcast but I promise I feel guilty about it

@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˜…

@ashfurrow I've only listened to a bit of the weakerthans, but everytime I listen to Heavyweight and their song comes on, I think I should listen to more.

@Tuxhedoh That's so cool! I hadn't heard of that podcast before โ€“ you like it?

The "Sun in an Empty Room" song is based on an Edward Hopper painting: wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/s Another Weakerthans song, "Night Windows" is also based on one of his paintings: wikiart.org/en/edward-hopper/n

@ashfurrow I really do enjoy Heavyweight, though the most recent episode might've been the worst of the season. I didn't really like it. You should definitely give it a shot.

@ashfurrow youโ€™re missing a sticker with an elephant ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

sick 

@fuzzface haha, there came a time in my life (5 years old) that I learned to appreciate _all_ lego

@ashfurrow A Lily, a Rose, a Petunia. You showcase your plants in your toots, I thought maybe you were showing off another beautiful growth.

@tekmav in the holiday photo? That would be @ashleykrista, who _yes_ I would describe as a lily, rose, and petunia ๐ŸŒน

@ashfurrow @ashleykrista A much better addition to a holiday photo than a poinsettia, I must say. Cheers.

@ashfurrow Ah, all things normal here, nothing to worry about: Ash posts plant photosโ€ฆ

@ashfurrow smells like rotting meat to attract carrion feeders as pollinators? Producing own heat for same or to melt snow? what else...? (Aroids are awesome and weird)
