One more time:

I'm moving my primary account to @noelle . It has been a lovely four years here at Elekk but what I need right now is my own little asteroid in the vast fediverse.

You are welcome to follow me there, but please do so because you're interested in me as a person and not because you think I have influence on Mastodon or the fediverse in general. I'd like to be able to just be me, please.

Also, be aware that I'm not going to be posting there or following anyone for a while - I'm still in my hermitage, I just wanted to let you know what my new plans are.

(Also also, Elekk isn't going anywhere. Just to be clear.)

If you have some spare, would you please send some cash @magicalmilly 's way? They were unable to work last week thanks to Hurricane Nicholas, and they're getting jerked around by unemployment, and their birthday is next week, and ... they could just use something nice in their life.

The final ask from milly

I have a job that pays enough

My training paycheck (and some donations) have carried me through car explosions and HAD gotten me enough for rent.

And then the baby i live with got to take an er trip this morning.

And i got to buy medicine, food, supplies for her.

And it took me just under my threshold for rent and gas. Mandatory but aggravating.

I literally can pay you back on August 5th if need be. But that is right when rent late fees arrive.

If you can, a few bucks would be grand.

I finally have the game I was working for a godot game jam up on itch. Starscan is a non-violent retro-inspired exploration game and almost all of it is procedurally generated in some capacity. It's not a game style for everyone, but if it's interesting to you, and you'd like to help shake out some bugs and maybe share your impressions, here's a pre-release download link for the fediverse! :)

reading English required

voltur.itch.io/starscan/downlo

lmk if the link breaks. I'm new to publishing on itch.io and have no idea what I'm doing and it is fantastic.

I would be happiest, I think, if my role in the world were to bring the extraordinary and amazing to the attention of the people around me.

One of these days I should watch "The Greatest Showman".

I'm a sucker for "Don't you want weapons and armor to fight me?" "Oh, no, I'll take yours when you're through with them."

I tried to watch Star Trek (2009) on Amazon Prime with ads, and I will be honest: they have just stuck 90 seconds of ads in every X minutes, regardless of whether or not it makes sense to take a break there.

I noped out when they interrupted the destruction of the Kelvin to sell me Reese's Cups.

Watching Star Trek Generations. Geordi, you dick, Data pushing Beverly into the ocean after she told him to "live in the moment" and "be spontaneous" was 100% funny and you know it.

Aquarium platform shoes, only with the little parasite aliens from Stargate inside instead of fish.

There's go'a'uld in them thar heels.

(Yes, ξένος also meant "stranger", "foreigner", or - heh - "hired help, mercenary", but "guest-friend" was its primary meaning.)

Show thread

Apropos what @WizardOfDocs just posted: ξένος, as an adjective in Hellenic Greek, meant "foreign" or "strange, unusual". It's where we get the English prefix "xeno-".

But as a noun, ξένος had a remarkably different meaning: it meant "guest" or "host", in the sense of "one receiving/presenting hospitality". Prof. Heiny, my Classical Studies teacher, liked to translate it as "guest-friend"; your ξένος was someone whom you could rely upon to provide hospitality, and to whom you were obliged to provide hospitality in return.
