Pinned toot

I recently had it pointed out to me that I should do an post! So hi! I'm a clown, stiltwalker, juggler, musician, starting to work on some acrobatics, and I work for a (circusfreaks.org) I have a BA in German, and am hoping to start practicing speaking with people more often in German. I was invited to come and try out Mastadon by @RussSharek@mastodon.cloud and have been enjoying it thus far.

Child behaviour (something I'm curious about) 

new circus apparatus, mention of minor injuries 

New blog post! New blog theme! It looks like boring garbage right now, but it's garbage I'm proud of. tilde.town/~avalon/post/whatha

Also; agreed to do a writing challenge alongside family members who are participating in again this year. I've set a significantly lower goal for myself, but the end goal is that you should be seeing more posts from me soon :D

clothing design 

New shoes! Trying out the barefoot idea for day to day, as well as looking to get a new circus apparatuses to play with that hopefully they'll be good for. I'll share more as it happens! Anyone else have opinions on barefoot style shoes?

inktober, negative probably 

"It's so strange to realize..."

"What?"

"I have too many bones in me."

"Did... did you discover some extra bones you didn't previously know about?"

"Technically."

There was a pregnant pause.

"I mean eventually they'll go off and do their own thing, but it'll be a while."

There was another pregnant pause.

"We're going to be parents."

"OH THANK GOD."

"Why what did you think?"

"You ate the neighbor."

"That bitter soul? No way!"

Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:

"Are you an actor?"
"Nope."
"A comedian?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."

*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.

Don't buy flowers at a monastery. Because only you can prevent florist friars.

Okay for every like this post gets, I'll tell you to stop liking this post, it's not very good.

Today marks the first time #git absolutely saved my butt on a collaborative writing process.

In one git checkout command, several hours of my partner's work came back from the abyss created by my stupidity.

Version control, for writers. Just do it.

Script writing session took hours this evening.

Much coffee was slain, and I think the clowns and I might be on to something interesting.

Now the hard part, making the silly thing work.

Art from Necessity 

This evening @Avalon made a handmade #decktet card deck out of index cards and proceeded to positively trounce me in an addictive little game called Emu Ranchers.

We found the idea here: decktet.com

Her deck was made using #tokipona symbols rather than Decktet's 'official' glyphs, leading us to call our newfound addiction "waso nasa".

There's a whole wiki full of games to explore.

@RussSharek @glimpse
Oh my goodness. The name is lovely and it has a good mascot potential.

But English is a mess. 😨

Hey @glimpse

My suggestion for the #glimpse project:

GNU
Handler
Of
Transforming
Images

Because we need more programs called fish.

If you want to make a softer, kinder, and better world, your best bet is to start be treating yourself softly, with kindness, and as well as you can.

It can be so easy for us to dismiss our own needs, to tear ourselves apart, and to treat ourselves far worse than we would dream of treating (practically) anyone else... but uhhh if you're working to hold up others? You are going to need a strong foundation.

That foundation is going to have to be you friend. Be fuckin nice to you.
