Alright, let's do this...

Hi! I'm Alahmnat. I'm a mid-30s web developer, aspiring game designer, and D'ni historian. I make no apologies for my bad/dad jokes and puns. Also I'm an arctic fox :)

My pronouns are they/them, but I won't be mad if you use he/him.

Destiny 2 new season spoiler 

Fun fact: I have no idea how the encounter rooms on the Leviathan are *supposed* to connect to one another because in literally every raid I did there the fireteam just followed the guy who had memorized how to use the maintenance tunnels to get around the ship.

It continues to blow my mind that people keep insisting on recommending Brave for literally anything when it’s deep-throating the crypto market and run by the homophobic jackass who got himself kicked out of the Mozilla foundation’s CTO chair in 11 days for backing Prop 8.

BTW, a good iOS client is Toot! It definitely has whimsy.

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.

Also I can totally see why it would piss off authoritarian parents and people who think puberty is shameful, or turn off all the self-righteous killjoys who have forgotten they were ever kids. If you can’t relate to this movie in *some* way, I question if you’re even from this planet. What a great film.

Turning Red may well be my new favorite Pixar movie.

Dogs in Space spoilers 

I actually really appreciate that Kira was ultimately wrong about humans in the end. She had *every* reason to believe what she did; that we’d sent her—and by extension, the rest of the dogs in the show—off into space and abandoned them, because I mean, *gestures broadly*. She spent the entire season as a jaded sardonic cynic that kinda has you nodding along with her the whole way, because if she *had* been right about what happened to her, it would have been perfectly in line with our track record. It is NOT hard to make us look bad as a species.

But she *was* wrong, and not only that, she was wrong about her *own human*, and she got to go home at the end of the season to see her again. I really hope she comes back to the M Bark, though. It may have been iffy for a bit near the end, but I think she’s a good dog at heart with a lot understandable trauma to work through, and the Pluto crew has been a good family for her.

Puns are great

There's no butt of the joke when it's a pun

The whole joke is:

"This word sounds like another word"

And you will hate that you love them

Feels like I haven’t woken up this early in a long time now, even though it’s only been 2 months. Trying to force myself back into a “normal” schedule before my new job starts tomorrow.

Side note: I don't think I've ever *actually* had fever chills before last night.

Do not recommend.

Got my booster shot yesterday. Knocked me down pretty hard overnight, but feeling better now, besides a headache and a neck ache from having to lay in awkward positions to keep my arm from hurting too much.

Yep, nope, the end of Centaurworld still makes me cry.

Realized tonight was the last night to watch the new Matrix on HBO Max. Literally got kicked out of the end credits by an error saying the content was unavailable, so I guess I squeaked under the wire just in time.

Destiny, I've already reset my Vanguard rank twice, please give me Gambit boosties instead.

My paws smell like potatoes.

Probably because I was just peeling potatoes.

Obviously there’s a certain degree of nostalgia baked into that sentiment as well, but I think radio stations that start playing Christmas music on October 1st sure as hell aren’t helping any. No holiday can stand up to that kind of abuse without breaking.

Show thread

I wonder how much of the "it never feels like Christmas at Christmas time anymore" sentiment is due to the fact that the holiday has been smeared out to cover basically the last 3 months of the year.
