here are the happiest chickens, seen on a walk with my partner in their lil town in northern Finland. this was so cool, I like how they built it around that row of birch trees.
and these are apartments! I can't imagine being allowed to build something like this at a place you're renting, you know? seems like the sort of thing a landlord would frown upon round here. https://mastodon.social/media/RVSQ-sFS7JCicELWXPA
I did it! archived and deactivated 2/3 twitters and locked the last one—largely because I suspect my presence is worth a lot less to Bird Corp if nazis can't find me
and I deleted twitter for mac, the worst goddamn program ever made, which is only a hair better than useless if you have multiple accounts to switch between
I'll find other stuff to talk about soon, I don't want my relationship with mastodon to be one where all I do is complain about my ex lmao. but oh man, I feel lighter
as for twitter, I'm thinking I'll delete all but my main account, probably lock that, pare down my following to people I've interacted with, turn off all notifications except for *maybe* DMs, and... I dunno. we'll see.
there are people I care about that I've only ever interacted with on twitter. I don't wanna fade out on them just because the service where we happened to meet is a mismanaged, nazi-infested tire fire. as soon as I have other ways of keeping in touch with all of them, I'm gone.
I've been neither tooting nor tweeting and I think the solution is to drastically reduce my twitter presence and toot these photos of my beautiful weird cat
had a great birthday! my social battery's been running low so I spread it out over the weekend, hanging out in small groups. I didn't get to see everyone I would have liked, but I'm super grateful for everyone I got to spend time with
now it's @FuzzyProxy's birthday and I'm gonna go eat a burger about it, then spend at least a couple days taking a break from anything socially taxing because hooooboy it's been a week
a good week, but really really exhausting
they're brazen little fuckers too, I keep seeing them running across the floor and on top of the stove in the middle of the day while I'm right there in the next room
the bait just sits there while more and more mouse shit appears all over the counter. we've been trying not to leave any crumbs so idk what the hell's going on. between the shit and the traps, the kitchen is basically unusable
the traps bother me more tbh, I've started having dreams where I have to feel around the counter in the dark and it's just totally covered in traps
we've had mice for weeks and it fucking sucks, I'm about to go buy 50 cans of spaghettios and burn the kitchen down
we've had no problem trapping the little shits in the past but these ones are just impossible to catch?? we've had about 8 traps with increasingly enticing bait all over the counter for like a week and haven't caught a single one, which is unprecedented. it's really really wearing me down
my friend made an instance at meemu.org so I'm gonna be trying that out, but so far getting instances to play nice with each other is a little annoying? users of other instances appear to have no avatar/posts/follows at first
