What do you call a Mexican parrot? 


My weakness is a crowd of people clapping for a stranger.

I finished it! After 1 year of stitching (with a break for a minor WoW stint), I finished converting this #pixelart scene to #crossstitch. It’s the biggest stitch I’ve ever done, 8x10 inches on 18-count Aida, bringing it in at over 25,000 stitches. I stabbed this piece of fabric over 100,000 times.

How to say "I'm sorry":

An apology: "I'm sorry that I..."

Comfort/Sympathy: "I'm sorry that you..."

Don't say one when if you mean the other.

If you step on someone's foot, they open their mouth, just like trash cans.

@frspmusic Hi, I'm from Hotline Webring. We saw that you added yourself to the ring but I don't see any links on your page. Did we miss them? Was it a mistake? Thanks!

BREAKING: ICANN has voted to REJECT the sale of the .ORG registry to private equity firm Ethos Capital. This is a major victory for the millions of nonprofits, civil society organizations, and individuals who make .ORG their home online. #SaveDotOrg

We just had to ban a couple questionable sites from and I tell you what it feels awful to have to ban people! Shoutout to moderation teams out there doing the right but hard thing.

I've used and can recommend Handerpants. Also their site is full of treasures:

Now would be a great time to get a ton of street view scans with no one around.

Anyone using a good Trello alternative?

Ideally I'd find a nice kanban-style board where I'm able to optionally enter markdown notes.

Not being able to find the end call button on a remote meeting is the new saying goodbye and then walking in the same direction


Before jumping into someone else's mentions:

✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
