hello, dear toot.cat people!
i’m raphael, and this is my #introductions toot over here. :)
i like a variety of things (python programming, rock climbing, puns, dark wave, drawing, archery, tea, cats, chocolate…), tend strongly towards the nerdy/shy, and am coming to this instance from mastodon.social.
hey y’all! <3
nothing quite like having told co-workers that a specific, fine-grained markup for a certain case would probably come in handy in the future, then being told ‘oh no, it’s fine enough as free text, we need the unstructured freedom’ and a couple of years later, getting a wish list from the same co-workers that would benefit greatly from having the markup to provide the meaning that i now have to parse from free text.
rock climbing stuff, good read Show more
rock & ice have an excerpt from alex honnold’s mother’s book, and it’s a really nice combination of general rock climbing feels and how ‘small’ experiences can improve your understanding of ginormous ones.

shameless price hikes (--) Show more
one of my favourite fountain pen inks is miruai by sailor. it’s a gorgeous, deep, cool green-black. pilot’s notoriously expensive (~30EUR/50ml) ‘iroshizuku’ ink line has no colour remotely like it, and i could buy 50ml for 13 EUR.
now, a rebrand and repackaging later, sailor managed to fucking outprice even iroshizuku, and sell the same ink in a 20ml bottle for 15 EUR.
oof, apparently there was a childrens’ birthday (or similar gathering) at the #climbing gym today and it made the session so much less productive.
i’m happy to see kids at the gym. i want them to have fun. but bouldering has risks. way heavier people do sketchy moves above kids’ head level. they can fall without warning and when kids just run about aimlessly, they’ll get hurt. parents, please go climb with your kids, but always be watching. no group chitchat as if you were in your back yard plz
tfw you think today’s #yoga was a bit of a useless dud, but then you sit back down afterwards and notice you feel like you weigh 20 kg less.
@Jo jo, have you looked at the nancy drew comic whose tpb just came out? kelly thompson wrote it and jenn st-onge did the art, so it feels pretty jem-y.
re: talking politics with US folks Show more
tbh, i’m somewhat proud of being able to just back out of that clusterfuck without engaging.
there’s just no value to discussion of a term that’s an amorphous, all-encompassing blob of red scare and american exceptionalism. the goalposts are shifting themselves in there.
