Guess who managed to get out of her cone and clawed at her scab.
Hint: this kitty.
She had the cone on all yesterday and last night and her face hole is definitely smaller; I’m gonna put the cone back on in a bit and I know she will not be happy about this but the sooner it heals the sooner we let her back outside..l

*opens up wallet, finds two fives and two ones*
*finds two pennies and a dime*
*digs in her bag while the barista gets the drink together and replaces that dime with two nickels*
I would not have done this if anyone was waiting in line behind me, of course. But it made me happy to do this.
Hey #mastoadmin: one user (A) on my instance does not get notifications when one particular other user (B) of my instance @s them.
A and B are mutuals; A has checked that they have not muted or blocked B. Is there anything else we should be looking into here? Anything like prodding the db or some tootctl invocation i should try?
There is a guy on Nextdoor flipping his shit because a marathon this Sunday blocked his car driving plans and it is fucking hilarious, because this is in the middle of Carnival season and people Uptown have to get up EVERY DAY and decide “okay which side of St Charles do I want to be on today” and act on that pretty early because they won’t be able to get their car across the parade routes until pretty late.
(Mostly Nextdoor here is lost and found pets, to be honest. It’s pretty chill.)
"New Orleans is pretty much like any other city really", she says, while checking the schedule for a parade made up of goofy nerds dragging tiny, tiny floats made from shoeboxes through a few blocks of the Marigny.
This is a nice article about what it’s like to live in Las Vegas. It resonates with my experiences of growing up in one Tourist Destination, spending a decade in another, and eventually moving back to the first.
There is the face a tourist city shows you when you visit, and there is the face it shows to the people who live there. There is not much overlap, and the tourist face is designed to gently but firmly extract as much money as possible from you and keep your ass the hell away from the locals who haven’t explicitly chosen to live, work, or visit that part of the city. If you are friends with a local perhaps they will deign to guide you out of the tourist zone to a relaxed, low-key visit to the true beauty of their home...
Sucks for Vegas that the Tourist Strip is actually in the municipality of Sunset, an unincorporated town that I bet brings absolutely no tax revenue to the city proper. I know there’s a constant battle between New Orleans, Louisiana, and the larger tourist operations for those tasty tourism profits!
