#introductions Hi! I'm a 33 year old bisexual who loves hockey, dogs, and craft beer! I'm a dog trainer and I specialize in training pitbulls. Pictured is my rescue Zelda. She's a lab/greyhound/pitbull mix and she's 8 years old. My pronouns are he/him.

Someone I know wants to try out Mastodon, but he doesn't know English. Is there:

A) A way to look for users speaking a particular language?

B) A Polish instance that's well moderated (no bigotry allowed on there)?

Please boost, even if you don't know 😓

Won't be present at tonight because we'll be having the common Jehovah's Witness "not technically Thanksgiving" dinner (with just my brother and his family over.) While I'm not a JW, my mom is; she converted when I was 12, not too long after my dad died. For the curious, the reason Jay-Dubs don't celebrate Thanksgiving is because they consider it to be a nationalistic holiday. (Fair I suppose.)

Of course I was up late last night; it was practically daylight. Caught the moon playing footsie with the clouds

Capitalist workplaces are totalitarian dictatorships where people spend majority of their waking lives. Microsoft's new 'Productivity Score' lets your boss track how much you use email, Teams, and even whether you turn your camera on during meetings.

Early Jimmy Buffett is the best Jimmy Buffett and probably unrecognizable to most people. (A lot of Buffett is good up to middle; at some point around the mid 80s he started to get not good.)

“Mile High in Denver.” This song came into my head today, probably as a son of the Western mountains. There are a lot of places to dream of traveling to, but sometimes, like tonight, it’s hard to imagine a better place to be. “Tonight, I’ll call it mine.”

@northernlights (And plenty of pills not mentioned in the song. They go particularly wild inpatient, and then you have to deal with fixing that goofy shit once you get out.)

@northernlights The ones out here have also been the best about actually treating me like an intelligent adult who knows what I’m talking about and listening to me. From here on out I’m not being pushed around any more.

@northernlights I’m just on a couple things for that now though; the couple shrinks I’ve seen way out here have actually been the best about “the fewest meds possible” and “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I’ve definitely been through the mill, though; I’m familiar with most of the pills in the song (although I’ve rarely been trusted with benzos outpatient having always been honest about being a drinker, and I don’t need it anyway)

“Who’s Crazy / My Psychopharmacologist and I”

Idk, I found it funny. (But I have a certain sense of humor.)

If you ask me, though, “Who’s Crazy” is the wrong question. The husband seems like an asshole and also a real whiny son of a bitch.

Yesterday some comrades were suggesting that people donate to the Mashpee Wampanoag. Earlier this year they dealt with an attempt by the federal government to revoke government recognition of their tribe & the land rights that entailed. They also run a community food bank. The US government recognizes today as Native American Heritage Day (controversially, as it coincides with what has unofficially been the major commercial free-for-all called Black Friday for decades now), so today seems like a good day to share their donations page
