@themugue I always have weird feelings looking for jobs. I never think I'm qualified for anything at all. I found it easier to start applying for things when I was told to remember that it's their job to decide if you're qualified, not yours. I had some massive confidence hits over the years, being rejected for simple things though so it's hard to keep going sometimes.

I have no solutions, just solidarity. Good luck!

Thanks to some fortuitous available time of everyone involved, we managed an eight-player Captain Sonar (boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/17) session this afternoon. What a unique and intense game this is! Definitely a crowd favourite.

@pelagikat thanks, I missed this last year after not seeing the date they were doing it until too late.

You can get a free flu vaccination (and a coffee!) at Melbourne Town Hall on May 10. I've booked in at 2.30, come and join me! πŸ’‰β˜•immunisationcoalition.org.au/e

@WandelStock trying to book tickets for Avengers at a nearby cinema actually.

Also, hilariously, they don't tell you if a session is sold out until you try to buy a ticket for it.

I can quite literally see my house from here. I'm looking directly at it, directly in line with the road approaching it. Must come back with a better camera one day.

Hello from Boronia Peak, in Halls Gap! I traditionally really only take selfies after climbing to the top of something fairly high. Here's one. This is a much more rewarding walk then The Pinnacle on the other side of the gap.

This is a very good date selection dropdown menu with no flaws at all.

@theoutrider @nebula @celesteh my god that's amazing. I've never seen anything be that oddly and yet terrifyingly wholesome.

@theoutrider there are people who have never known a world without The Simpsons who have grandchildren.

Greeting my first post-MICF audience and welcoming them to the new venue.

@Funkpirata I get that people love it, and don't want to stop anyone from going if that's their thing - but honestly if you asked me to describe my own personal vision of hell, it'd sound a lot like Confest. :ohdear:
