Pinned toot

Hey, friends. For the last year and a half I've been writing about animation and music that has brought joy to my life. This year, the music posts include 30-second sampler mixes so you can get a feel for the record I'm writing about.

You can check out the archives here: greyduck.net/category/3wa

Please give a look and a listen, and let me know how I'm doing. Thank you.

I would have done this last week but I was sick and miserable, so now that I'm back to work, I've decorated my new office for the holidays.

Being delegated to watch a marketing "webinar" because the people who SHOULD be watching it have other/better things to do is a special kind of hell all its own.

the reason you need to CW your nudes and porn isn't because someone might be at work. it's because someone might not want to see nudes or porn.

this message has been brought to you by the association of people in favor of content warnings that actually say what the content is.

Lest I seem unappreciative: The fact that my employers offer generous PTO and the option to work from home has been an absolute blessing to me this month of December during which I produce phlegm at a phenomenal rate.

I'm a lucky duck.

Going to be working from home yet again tomorrow.

So, let's see: Number of days in December so far? 9. Number of days that I've felt healthy and capable through the day in December so far? 1.

Our office plague rat owes me... something. Probably a pitcher of NyQuil.

The weeklong sickness continues. Still have to get laundry done, despite how badly I just want to stay in bed the entire day.

Ugh.

With 2018 being almost over, I've decided to build some absolutely inofficial Fediverse charts.

If you want to take part, simply reply to this toot and tell us about your game, movie, or album release of the year and I'll collect the data and build some funny graphs at the end of the year. Deal? 😊

If you think more categories should be included, feel free to respond with whatever it was you liked best this year, and I'll try to group all responses.

Boosts appreciated!

I saved a soundtrack for the home stretch, yes indeed, because I'm a loose cannon that way, buddy!

And it's for an anime. Wild, right?

Dolce Triade's LAST EXILE OST, this week at the writing project: greyduck.net/journal/3356

Enjoy, won't you please?

And today, we make our second attempt this week to put in a day of work actually at the office.

Bwahahaha *cough wheeze sniffle*

Hello new #Mastodon folks! 🐘

Have you heard of the #Fediverse? 🗺️

It's a set of community projects that use the #ActivityPub standard to talk to each other.

Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:

Instagram -> PixelFed 📷
@pixelfed
pixelfed.social

YouTube -> PeerTube 🎞️
joinpeertube.org/

SoundCloud -> Funkwhale 🎧
@funkwhale join.funkwhale.audio/

MeetUp -> GetTogether 🍻
@GetTogetherComm
gettogether.community

...and many others.

Taking a stab at working from home today. We'll see how long I last.

Slept half the day away, only accomplishment is running the dishwasher, and I feel exactly as miserable now as I did when I came home from work Monday morning.

So, yeah, this week is a write-off thus far...

Day Two of the new illness. Boy howdy I love enforced stay-at-home do-nothing time. SO MUCH. [/sarcasm]

Perhaps it's best if I never find out who was the plague rat at Friday night's office party.

Just so we're clear.

If we cannot even agree that Nazism should be resisted with every means at our disposal, you're just a fucking coward.

Someone who advocates to 'reason' with someone that believes the best outcome is to see you dead is enabling hate and racism to continue.
