Oooh it seems that I now have a date for my driving test.. and it's on a date that I should definitely be able to remember, remember..

.. now fingers crossed they can line up an intensive course and the instructor lends me their car for the test..

@athairbirb yeah, it's weird.. I remember after a trip to the US when I was about 11y.o. commenting on the ludicrous amount of ads between tiny segments of a TV show.. had the exact same experience last night. Even the non-"Britain, fuck yeah" type ads were bizarre.. a chicken witch of the North, wtf?

As someone who took down the satellite dish and disconnected the TV aerial antenna upon moving in to our house about 7 years ago.. I'm finding the experience of watching terrestrial TV and the channels' catch up apps both infuriating and sickening..

The sheer volume of ads is infuriating and much more than 7 years ago.. the content of a large volume is "Brexit is great" and it's bloody sickening.. though I am in Grampian TV region so could just be the Tory influence up here.. though my suspicion is that it's widespread.

question about covid vaccine and HRT :boost_ok:

So I'm scheduled to get my first jab of the covid-19 vaccine soon (finally!) and I have one wee concern about it.

One of the symptoms of COVID, and by extension the vaccine side-effects, is an increased risk of blood clotting. As I'm taking estrogen supplements, I'm already at an increased risk of blood clotting.

Is there any advice out there for getting the vaccine while on estrogen HRT? Has anyone here that takes estrogen supplements had any problems when they were vaccinated?

@dansup same as is but federated..

@athairbirb not only is it fake but our oil is so clean and pure you can drink it instead of water, or add it to your cereal.. you'll start pissing rainbows and within a week your toilet will have so many pots of gold that Smaug and Kings Midas and Tut will self-resurrect just to exclaim their jealousy.. indeed consume our oil and you and a sibling will be on a guaranteed fast track to space tourism, eternal life and nirvana..

.. I mean that's probably what the deleted tweet said, I'd imagine.

Are there any #IndieWeb people who are proficient on the subject that I might be able to interview for a video?

I'm looking to distinguish #fediverse and indieweb, and articulate their similarities and differences.

πŸ¦—πŸ“Έ got to see a load of grasshoppers today

A little brown grasshopper on a stone and tufts of grass. A grey grasshopper hiding in a tuft of grass amongst some gravel. A grasshopper looking alert as it stands on a rock facing some grass.

@athairbirb ooh, I am bound into an agreement to buy my niece a laptop for the start of uni in September and have been searching for a laptop with camera\mic hardware switches.. this looks great but doesn't look like it'll be here on time with non-US layout\power cables etc.

However, when the time comes for me to replace my troublesome purism laptop, I'll keep an eye on them..

@athairbirb I'll need to try that. Living in a half Japanese household means that seaweed is never far from our dishes but I'm not the biggest fan.. but I really want to be!

@athairbirb actually, that should be proteins and polyphenols, I think

@athairbirb it helps with clarification, in this case it helps bind proteins and polypeptides together to form a mass that sinks to the bottom of the fermenter and therefore reduces haze.

I commented a couple of days ago that the only thing I'd miss by moving from pleroma to gotosocial would be markdown support.. then raised a ticket and now by gotosocial has markdown support :)

@jalcine Nooooooo, I finally logged into reserve mine and expected availability is Q2 2022 in this region.. a period when I hope to be relocating to Japan... A region not on the initial list! I'll need to get creative..

How are food supplies? Are shelves in the supermarkets and shops at empty?

Especially interested in fresh fruit and vegetables.

Shelves here are not as full as they used to be, with some having vast empty areas.

Brex and Cov are where blame is being placed but I think it's just the former and would like more information.

Having to clear out space in my computer paraphernalia loft for some work next week and it's brought forward a necessary clear out.. so I've collected everything from the collection which is or contains data storage for mass deletion and stumbled across the only iPhone I ever owned (or ever will) .. I forgot how bound to iTunes it was.. plugged it in to charge it via USB and as soon as it had enough power to do so, it demanded to be connected to iTunes.. aye good luck with that..

People have been hopeless when it comes to talking accurately about covid since inception obviously, but, like my ancestors before me, I would like to not be killed by English people please

I cannot stress enough how important it is to be accurate when talking about covid laws and rules, reporting the English decision to get rid of social distancing and masks there as a β€˜UK’ issue means we’re going to get English people coming into Scotland/NI/Wales thinking they don’t have to wear masks and can do whatever the fuck they want
