Dogs and Impromptu Terminology: Mouth Jousting!
"Mouth Jousting" is a term that multiple dog owners seem to have come up with at the same time to describe this phenomenon and I love it :D
(It's a video of two dogs playing-- one hiding under a chair and both baring teeth at each other (without snarling) and getting close as though they were going to bite, but then pulling back before making contact while the other does the same! Mouth Jousting! ^^)
I'm really happy about the new #MastoAdmin feature that lets you pass account requests through an approval queue. The spam bots that would normally have successfully created accounts that would then sit idle for ages are instead just pasting their messages into the "Reason" field for immediate denial!
Now if only Gargamel hadn't ruined the homepage with this boxy monstrosity over which we have absolutely no creative control...
(Doom E2M1 - but it's happy)
This made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe. XD https://youtu.be/mvz3LRK263E?t=210
Some cishet white male celebrities with less toxic views
Chris Pine is an agnostic atheist who describes his politics as "left of liberal" and openly criticizes the Democrats for not being more radical.
Patrick Stewart is openly feminist and socialist. His family has a long-standing tradition of promoting and organizing unions and he's proud of that heritage. He's also an atheist.
about Steven Universe, Trauma, Lars
I feel like Lars coming back pinked (resurrected by Steven) is an excellent allegory for finding life after trauma.
I keep thinking about this and it only seems to make more sense. Like, you're back, and you're mostly you? But you're obviously not and never will again be the person you were. You just have to make peace with who you used to be and get on with the business of finding a new path to happiness.
