I have been brushing the cat every day due to how much she is shedding and it has made her incredibly soft.

At least I was told it was actually him, and it certainly sounds like him. I never met him or had any involvement in that part of it.

We got Eddie Hobbs to do a voiceover for it somehow though.

A friend unearthed a DVD with a film we made in secondary school. It is very teenager.

@dreadpirateyarr @Jo good to hear! The cat is shedding a fuckton and I'm starting to worry about how quickly I might start going through roller refills

do reusable lint rollers work or are they a scam


SR388 does not have an official name due to being uninhabited. SR388 is a Galactic Fedeation serial number but no one actually calls it that outside of official reports. It does have a nickname though. Because of the abandoned underground cities that run beneath the surface of the planet it is widely known by the name "Metro".

The cat has finally relaxed and feels comfortable here and she's going absolutely wild running around the place.

@Milouchkna @kilombavita @El_joa Oh that's really interesting! The pages are extremely yellow. I'm not sure what way they're bound or how to tell. This is what the spite looks like.

Caoimhe boosted

Interesting article about the 'why' of Lenition and Eclipsis in Irish: nualeargais.ie/gnag/sindos.htm
(NB: Article was originally in German I think, so watch out for oddities in translation).
The short version of 'why' is basically "Irish people talk too fast for stupid things like consonants to get in the way"


I still can't get blood tests done due to the HSE hacks

cat update 

the cat has come out of her hiding place and is staring at me warily from across the room

My mam has also for the longest time referred to any small living thing in the family as my given name when excited or shouting such as the dogs or my nephews and today she called my baby niece Caoimhe while running after her.

For a long time I was worried that my family wouldn't want to explain my transition to my young nephews. That they'd think it was too weird or complicated and would want to hide it indefinitely. Today they sang happy birthday to Caoimhe to me.

@vital876 There does seem to be special equipment for it but the only place around that's semi-accessable for it is the local college library and they don't allow outside access. I have a friend who's a student but I'm not sure about asking her to scan a 200 page novel in her spare time.

@grumpy it's an obscure book of very local interest. I've checked the Internet Archive and Open Library, they don't have it. The link seems very interesting but also a lot to go through for a single volume.

I have a 100 year old book I would like to scan and preserve. What is the best way to do this without damaging too much or spending a fortune?
