looks like none of my queer.party posts have federated in at least 4 hours >.<

Also shout-out to Google translate for the excellent image transcription, it even got the list in order despite the two columns

Covid, UK politics 

Good to hear that the next (last?) self employed grant will be 80% again, just need to fond out when it'll be paid so I can tell my landlord when to expect our (so far) two missed rent payments

Tusky 14 is out now!

I spent way too long on this silly joke

@BrokenBiscuit this must've been in the first lockdown when only a few McDonald's had reopened, cos I can't believe anyone is 68 miles from their nearest McDonald's

Things that irritate me about the way people share links:

Using Nitter/the youtube one links rather than linking direct to twitter/youtube, if you want to use those cool, but they force dark theme, you can't interact with the content and it's confusing if you don't know what they are (I thought nitter was a fediverse site and couldn't work out how to get the link to load within mastodon)

Using reddit links that have forced themes in (old, compact etc) I had to install an add on to strip these

@MxCraven @stolas yeah, also "mute this thread/conversation" if the specific post becomes a thread or you don't want to keep seeing a back and forth on your home timeline

@stolas this is the best feature gargron has added in ages, now I can mute people and not forget to unmute them for 3 weeks

oh god people are suggesting a christmas toast on our doorsteps on christmas day "like we all did for the NHS" ugh, no go away

@garfiald schools are going to be closed for the whole first two weeks of tier 4

@cassolotl yeah I've always understood it as any household with a single adult was allowed to bubble with another household with any number of adults, so my (divorced) parents bubbled because my dad lives alone and my mum and brother live together. But this is England, and I wasn't aware that Wales may have had different guidelines

poll 

which shape is the most 'sexy'?

@Juju I can't exactly remember mine but it definitely had vampire in it
