Pinned toot

Hi new folks! I'm Paul, but some people call me CookieMom. I enjoy baking, raising money for charities, playing games, and designing games. I don't enjoy politics, but I still try to stay active in it.

On Mastodon, I'm a moderator for the Awoo.space instance, trying to support those in need and helping to resolve conflicts, intentional or not.

For work, I do stuff that destroys my soul, but pays my bills. It's the compromise I accept.

A (brief) Mastodon Tutorial:

Hi! Welcome to Mastodon! Here's some major things you need to know after your :

Your first instance may not be your permanent instance: Try going to instances.social/ to find the instance that is right for you! I like awoo.space for it's pro-active moderation!

The "CW" button is a content warning. It hides your post behind it. It's considered good behavior to CW politics, NSFW stuff, anything that can be emotionally traumatic, or memes.

Oh hey, it's time again!

I'm Paul, my interests are video and board games, cultivating sedum as a lawn, and baking cookies.

I do some game design as well. You can play a demo of my first board game here:

And I'm currently working on my second game which is an abstract minimalist 4X game. Alpha PNP will be available in Nov.

@Maiasma Hey, hope you're staying healthy through this bullshit. Take care, okay?

Twitter, Schadenfreude

Five days ago, Trump stood shoulder to shoulder with someone who has just been diagnosed with Coronavirus.

Pence was on Trump's other shoulder.

People can be contagious for seven days before showing symptoms.

Oh, what a beautiful morrrrning.
Oh, what a beautiful dayyyyyyyy.

A harsh reminder, sui, abuse 

Threatening or doing self-harm unless other people comply with your demands is abuse.

pol, actually good news 

Bloomberg suspended his campaign.

I cheered out loud.

Anyways, if you're feeling defeated after tonight, and like it doesn't matter if you vote or not, remember, that makes it easier for those who oppose you to win.

Hey folks, gonna dive into some of Song of the Deep today. Come by and say hi in chat! mixer.com/CookieMom

Important Sonic movie question 

Is there any Crush 40 songs in the movie?

new dialup express instance blocks 

glindr.org (transmisic instance)
busshi.moe, blog.blob.cat, tube.blob.cat (run by blob.cat admin, fascism attempting to masquerade itself)

So, I'm looking at what's come out this year for games, and nothing's really striking me as a stand-out experience? Last year had a bunch of exceptional games and this year, there's a lot of solid games. Is there anything out there I missed and should dive into before the year is up?

OK folks, this apparently started three months ago, but if you have friends who had accounts on here and abandoned it you should let them know about the account hacking so they can check on their accounts.

I know Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Starcraft, Diablo and WoW are fun and all, but values only hold water when you stand by them, even if you're inconvenienced by them. So, if the actions of Activision Blizzard offend you, consider cancelling subs and uninstalling.

blizzard, hell site, pol 

Saw a Senator call out Blizzard for their treatment of a player who won money in their tourney that showed support for Hong Kong.

To clarify, the tourney that took place in Taiwan, had an interview where the player voiced support for the Hong Kong protests. Blizzard then stripped the player of his winnings and banned him for a year, AND banned the casters who aired the statement.

@Maiasma How do you feel about spending part of your weekend killing Nazis?

So time:
I'm Alice, I'm a 15-foot demon rabbit who lays eggs and occasionally eats people.
I love @Ulfra_Wolfe and the Grimaude family, and I'm still trying to figure out my sense of identity.
Any pronouns are usually fine, ask if unsure.
Matthew Wolfbane/Silvermane and Aleissa Stormwind are also facets of myself.

Do you live in the US? Would you like to get a check for at least $125 dollars from a large corporation that's expecting those affected by it failure to not bother submitting a claim?

Personally, I spent about fifteen minutes a month double-checking that my credit didn't take a mysterious dip due to any new random loans being opened. Just saying.
