illness 

that's what I'm assuming based on the specific flavor of garbage I feel today... was more of a mystery for the four days he had a high temp but no other real symptoms. I'm envious/impressed at how well he was doing just with occasional acetaminophen now that it's finally hit me.

minor Black Panther spoiler 

not usually a critique I have of Marvel movies, but Wakanda Forever did not visit nearly enough destruction on the soulless stretch of Mass Ave between MIT and Central Sq IMO

Yes. I am building the Metronome Studios echo chamber in Stockholm Sweden. The backing vocals for Mamma Mia are going to sound immaculate

Hometown really got it right with "post." If I wanted to "publish" I would stop avoiding all the wordpress site upkeep tasks I semi-agreed to last week. We're posting here, firing off http POST requests, case closed.

i think all the time about my friend's little brother who, when his mom was telling him off for something, would look her right in the eye and turn off his hearing aids

: the Mastodon mobile web interface is quite good, and can package itself as an app! (at least on Android phones.) Go to your instance in your browser, open the three-dots menu, and select "Add to home screen". When I joined about 2 years ago I preferred it to any of the "real" apps available at that time, and I haven't ever had a reason to revisit this decision.
