Y'all, I have Work To Do and I just want to nap in the sun I am so tired from the non-stop-ness of the last 6 weeks.

OOoof. I am feeling Very Adult right now, as I weigh out my work obligations vs my family obligations and it's Not Easy.

Today's gender is a concerned, ghastly werewolf.

Made soup for a sick friend today, it's a good feeling to make something that eases another person's burden even if it's #justsoup.

Today's an English folk music day, with grey low-lying clouds outside.

Steeleye, Watersons, Bellamy, inter alia. I feel like this might resonate with @megueyb.

it will never not boggle my mind that at one point during the great depression the federal government was literally paying for anywhere between 3,000-8,000 people to do archives field work in every county in the United States during the latter half of the 1930s.

Today I spent so much time outside! I love May 1st when it's like this, and there's that moment when you look at a river and are like "Oh I could go swimming" even when the water's still Way Too Cold.

Socialism will mean more time for games. Just saying.
Happy May 1st!

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

@tabletophotdish The Forge laid the ground for ttrpg commerce today. We were the first scene to sell our games direct when paypal was new, the first scene to sell our games as pdfs when pdfs were new, and the first scene to produce our games print on demand when pod was new.

The problems we tackled, everybody still tackles today. Our good ideas are conventional wisdom now, which is fine and good...

Me! You can follow me! I talk about game design, museum work, textiles, teen advocacy, rocks, maybe some other stuff!

More importantly, if you know folks who talk about any of those things, I want to follow them, please tell me who they are!!

When I lived in the woods I loved the autumn, but since we moved to the fields the springtime is a delight. Look at this Studio-Ghibli-ass roadside just near our home.
