Show more etiquette recommendation (not subtooting anyone in particular, I've just been seeing more long threads in the local TL lately):

if you're writing a long toot-thread that you want to share publicly, it's nice to make your first toot "Public" and then the following toots "Unlisted." that way, only the 1st toot will show up in the local TL, & anyone who's interested can click on it to read the whole thread. :_earth:

thank you to everyone who posts publicly! I enjoy yr thoughts. 💚

(as usual, I only toot about fundraisers I've already donated to myself. Boosts welcome whether you can afford to follow suit or not)

I know it's a Big Giving Day and those actually get pretty tiresome, but I hope I can encourage a few of you to give to the decolonisation solidarity fundraiser Jewish Voice for Peace is doing, splitting the proceeds with the Palestinian Youth Movement and The Red Nation:
50% goes to
25% to
25% to

Dichrostachys cinerea (Goya Khair), is another of the useful plants that you will find at the Aravalli Biodiversity Park in Gurgaon. It also goes by the name Sicklebush.

The park itself is a young, rejuvenated forest and should be on your list if you are in Delhi/NCR.

TFW I throw the blinds open to get some natural light to help me wake up at 0715 and most of the light comes from the streetlight across the way. Can't imagine why I'm asking tropical dwellers for florespondence....

Dear tooters, especially photographers: the from my latitude gets very thin at this time of year. Any chance you could add some from yours?

Art project idea:
"Gendered" bathrooms with e-paper signs that change to different arbitrary symbols every day.

Symbol pairs will be chosen so that each day most people will manage to fit in but each day someone else would actually prefer a third/forth/fifth option.

Examples: Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Apples vs. Bananas, Vim vs. Emacs, Triangles vs. Squares, Coffee vs. Tea, …
you get the idea…


@data @drwho @eldang it's still very early days, but it's chugging along! I'm posting all #Readlebee-related things on its own account: @Readlebee
And all the information about it can also be found on that masto profile, too!

Once it's far enough along, I'll be asking for a lot of help with translations and code, but for now it’s still getting the basics set up. 👍

We got an astonishingly long flowering out of our dahlias this year because November’s weather was so weird. But all that lives must die and last week’s frost saw to that.

I am really digging dina el wedidi's music these days.

fun fact: her latest album uses field recordings from egypt's trains as the primary instrument


Also, I've fully switched over from Goodreads to LibraryThing now, as my final step in divorcing from Amazon. If any of my fediverse friends are on there you can follow me at (relevant to , but not exclusively - I read a lot of non-SFF too)

Hey ! @naga is taking December off from organising, but for those who still want to take part this month I suggest making it a sequels month. I will be reading Jeff VanderMeer's Authority which has been sitting on my bookshelf since shortly after we read Annihilation. I've also read Ann Leckie's and Margaret Killjoy's sequels and would love to talk about those if any of you pick one for your December read.

This is an image of the Southern Coucal shot at Thattekkad in Kerala. When this bird popped into the view-finder I realised that I had too much of a lens to capture the entire bird. The standout feature for me were the eyes - ruby red with a black cornea. It was mesmerising and I knew, instinctively, that the eye needed to grab attention in the image.

y'all. lets please stop using "poly" for "polyamorous" and get in the habit of using "polya" or "polyam". the reasoning behind this is a plea from Polynesian folk who have claimed the ID "Poly" for themselves, like, A WHILE ago.

I’m not sure why I’m quite so charmed by this particular piece, but I love it.
