Sad that the trophy-delivering robots from the Styrian GP haven’t made an appearance again.

Mercedes seem to be perusing an insane strategy for this.

Random confession: I didn’t learn how to draw the cool S until I was 27.

It’s been said before but it sucks that this year’s Eurovision entrants don’t get to participate next year, because Iceland’s entry is a fucking banger and would’ve swept the whole damn thing.

Green Party follow up questions! Party has set up direct debit and I seem to be on membership mailing list, but I never got anything like a confirmation email.

Sorry Mastodon I have been very bad at actually looking at you lately.

My home dashboard status screen that had a big ol' Masto feed on it broke a while ago and I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet. 😬️

If you thought we were through the worst of it and curious why talk of a “second wave” has started coming out of government mouths, it’s probably because the average number of cases started going up again a couple of weeks ago.
