Clementine had a very rough home early in her life, and arrived at the animal shelter about to give birth. We even got to meet a few of her kittens before adopting her! She’s mostly healthy now, and seems to be fitting in well so far. The vet estimates she’s between two and three years old.

(Our other cat is not impressed but they haven’t fought. We eased them into each other, and they’ve each decided to keep to one floor of the house – the stairs are a DMZ.)

I tried to search for "fediverse" on LinkedIn and, surprise surprise, I didn't find many promising results.

Are there any companies, startups, or enterprises working to further the somehow? I'm sort of looking for a new employer and would like working for someone who aligns with my personal goals.

Thoughts or leads?

exercise 

The fans of the Star Trek podcast I listen to have an online exercising group, which has organized a January core workout challenge (Worf calisthenics holodeck program, level two) and it is Kicking My Ass 😪

But I also hurt my foot yesterday so I’m taking some time off of running, so, *something* needs to ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

And on today's episode of Why Indicating Languages With National Flags is bullshit:

family, food 

Being an uncle is 90% beating your nephew at MarioKart and 10% letting your nephew have the last of the maple syrup even though it’s the good kind of syrup and he won’t really appreciate it.

To the adults out there: Good Morning.

To the little ones: Go play MarioKart with your aunt until I’ve finished making the pancakes.

I’ve been hosting children family members for the past week but this is my first morning waking up without them. I feel like this experience has Affected my Posts.

I’ve ordered crampons for running in the snow (a word I know how to spell but not pronounce).

“Cramp-onz”?

“Cram-pawns”?

“Craw-pawn (with French accent)”?

I don’t know and I refuse to learn.

The results are clear: Tuvix did partake but whether he combusted or not is undecided. I can live with that.

pet death 

I’ve gone from “I’ll never get an orange cat again” to my orange cat passing away to looking at orange cats up for adoption on the local spca website in the span of… six months or so?

things just seems so bland without something as garish as an orange cat running around the house.
