Pinned toot

Hi, my name's Patrick. I'm a 30-something journalist. You may have read this introduction to Mastodon I wrote for The Outline theoutline.com/post/2689/masto. These days, I'm a freelancer for CNN, although I almost never talk about work on this account.

I post more about my hobbies, like programming, baking, anime and science fiction/fantasy literature. I used to make Mastodon bots like @NintendoPowered and @Energy_Forecast

That's about it

Last December on Mastodon, half joking: It's deer tf season y'all.

This December on Mastodon, gravely serious: Can't sleep, furries will turn me into a deer.

I'm so close to being done with Octopath Traveler forever. My relationship with this game has reached vendetta status.

When i was in France last month, I took a train directly from the Paris airport to Avignon in 3.5 hours, which would be like taking a train from NY JFK airport to Cleveland in the same time, which is, of course, impossible. Even forgetting the distance from the airport to the train station, that's still a 12 hour train ride.

Before today I did not know a single thing about Dear Evan Hansen. Waving Through a Window just came on my Spotify radio station and uh oh
Uh oh
Uh oh
Uh oh I love it.

Wait, new Aggretsuko too. What is Netflix up to?

Ugh, there's new Neo Yokio? I don't know if I feel like going on that trip again.

From both a secular and a religious perspective I find it baffling that Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is now considered a Christmas song. I'm hearing the Pentatonix cover of it all over the city in holiday playlists

The ghost of Jim Henson is here trying to get me to watch Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. Leave me alone, Jim!

Work is having a holiday cookie social next week. I was thinking of trying to make snowflake window pane cookies.

Listening to Broadway showtunes on the commuter train like I'm gonna bust out with my big solo any second.

Musical improv class remains a blast. We went from drills to doing actual scenes with songs in them so much faster than I expected.

It's so gd early, but unfortunately it may not be early enough.

I think I've posted this individual gif more than any other in my life, which is odd considering it's the back half of a pair, but I've never had occasion to post the first one.
