Pinned toot

Time for one of these again, I guess.

I'm a middle-aged (gen-x), (Aus) woman working in IT. Politically left-leaning (small L liberal), . I have opinions. I may or may not share them.

I'm interested in

And a heap of other things. Mostly I toot about my cats though.

Best boss award (health) 

There's a plurality preferencing Monday 9th - is there anyone who wants to come and is NOT able to do Monday arvo/evening?

Also do we have any venue suggestions in Williamstown other than the Prince Albert? Just looking for alternatives so we have some choice.

:honk: Please :boost_ok: for Melbourne Fediverse people visibility! :honk:

@koosli @Andrea everyone should get a safe place to call home and enough food to eat. It's the competitive struggle to meet basic needs that pisses me off.

This is Phizzy. Phizzy knows that I can't handle her mournful cries.

Please ignore the fallen down chair in the background. It must have been the wind, or Pi.


This is Phizzy. Phizzy is confused that the window is open, and she can see me, but can not get to me, and that her human slave is not immediately solving this problem for her.

Looking for relevant research:

Ride sharing/hailing services just got go-ahead to operate in Vancouver (BC, Canada). It's all over the news.

One thing I haven't heard much about: the potential environmental impact. Are there likely to be more cars on the roads/people choosing this over transit or biking? I expect research has been done on this sort of question...anyone know of any?

Phizzy has figured out the upstairs bathroom has the best acoustics in the house.

She goes up there to meow/squeak.

So. After an eventful day of overshooting my own targets, it turns out I am now going to the UN for a couple of weeks in March. Will be sleeping on a friends sofa bed. But welcoming tips on flight booking, economy long haul flight survival, mobile phones in NYC, and getting my electronics and self through US immigration intact.
