Please CW sex work stuff if at all possible, thank you :meowflower:

there's a really insensitive advert on the radio

a teacher is standing in front of a class and she says "listen up class, if you need a new laptop - as I can see many of you do - then [shop] has new laptops from just ยฃ199, so there's no excuse!"

really? that got signed off? in a country where hundreds of thousands of families can't afford shoes for their kids let alone ยฃ199 for a new laptop?

do better

the British countryside is full of the kind of rich white guy I go to the countryside to get away from

I seem to have got a migraine from somewhere, but it's the first one I've had in months and the worst one I've had in a very long time, I couldn't sleep last night because I was feeling dizzy and queasy and my head hurt too much

Luckily I still have some codeine left from my last spate of migraines months ago but not much

I'm watching a really daft TV show called Ted Lasso at present - it's silly, it's about an American football coach who somehow ends up managing a football team here

But the entire show seems to be sponsored by Apple, so various Apple gadgets spend more time on screen than the main characters, even during a kissing scene we have to have a close up of an Apple phone in someone's hand, it's bizarre to watch

As always the Simpsons were there decades ago youtube.com/watch?v=4HErRwSpla

weird to hear the words "Northern Trains" without them being immediately followed with the words "service to Sheffield is cancelled"

Show thread

the following radio ad:

"...journeys beyond four walls again? welcome back to Northern Trains!"

makes me want lockdown back, please don't make us use Northern Trains again

why is our entire economy set up like a pyramid scheme we can't all be landlords

whenever a radio DJ is on holiday they always say "I'm in for Dave who's having a well deserved break"

they never say "I'm covering for Dave who has done fuck all except talk shit for an entire year, if there is anyone in the country who deserves a break less than him, I want to know"

meta, chaos.social 

I know there are a few people who follow me who are on chaos.social

The instance I'm on has silenced it, due to a lack of effective moderation and a lack of CWs (it seems to have a culture of users who either don't use CWs or put a "global CW" in their profile and then don't use CWs)

This isn't the first instance I know that's blocked/silenced chaos.social so if you are on there, it might be worth considering a move before you find yourself unable to communicate

I'm remote into an on-campus computer today For A Thing and someone's set the default search engine on all the uni PCs to something called Ecosia, the results are questionable at best

games suck 

๐Ÿ“– book: sit down, open book, read book, enjoy story

๐ŸŽฌ film: sit down, put on film, watch film, enjoy story

๐ŸŽฎ game: sit down, realise game is 100GB, start all-night download and come back tomorrow, load game, try and figure out controls because they're slightly different from the last game you played, realise your reaction times aren't quick enough, get killed over and over, never get good enough at it to progress through story, go back to reading a book

Then and now ๐Ÿ˜Š
This is Blaenrhondda, the village where both myself and @welshpixie were born. I'm not sure when the 1st photo was taken but it would have looked like that right up until the early 1970's. Most of the shafts were closed in 1966 and the remaining 2 were closed in 1978. I remember it looking like that. I don't know if you can make out the tall chimney at the right of the photo but I remember the whole village gathering on the side of the mountain to watch it being demolished ๐Ÿ˜Š
